Piano

”Playing the piano can sound like a threatening thunder, a birdsong, or a rock band.”

Pianists usually start playing at ages 5 through 7, but you can also start later or earlier at ages 3 through 4 at Suzuki instruction. You will learn the piano in private lessons and/or in groups. The piano is an excellent solo instrument, but it is well-suited for ensemble playing as well. You can play all kinds of music on the piano: classical pieces, pop and rock, accompanying songs, and improvising.

Regular practice on a good acoustic piano helps to learn the proper playing technique. You will have fun in your lessons and won’t be afraid of performing either. A new piano costs around 4,000 euros, a used one much less.

Piano in rhythm music

The piano is an important instrument in rhythm music and in bands as an accompanying instrument and a solo instrument. You will learn to play the piano in many genres (such as rock, pop, blues, and jazz) from sheet music, chords, by ear, and by improvising.
