Starting from age 8 to adult, you can learn classical, popular, jazz, blues or a little of each. I adapt the method you learn to your musical preferences and strengths. You can learn to play the songs that interest you while learning how to:
- read music
- develop your ear
- read and understand chords
- learn technique and musical theory
- sing and play at the same time (if you wish)
don't worry if you know absolutely nothing in music, that's often the best place to start. All you need is a keyboard of some sort. The better the instrument, of course the more enjoyment that you and your ears will have, but it isn't necessary to start learning. I have students that own grand pianos, and some that have small portable keyboards. The goal is to make some music!
