LESSONS

 

 

We feel that music education should not a one size fits all approach, hence we offer a range of programs with teachers who each have their own, researched and reputable styles of teaching based on years of experience. From absolute beginners to advanced learners, we are here to support you and your goals in music education with student based learning!

At Player 1, our aim is to foster the love of music and ignite creativity in children and adults adults by teaching you how to play the piano and read music... Not to make learning music a chore that no one looks forward to, or only those with a special talent can achieve. 

There's more to music  education than your weekly lessons. Our tutors offer ongoing and caring support throughout your journey. Each student is offered an opportunity to join an ensemble or to perform at our year concert. 

MUSIC FOUNDATION

Our Music Exploration 1.0 and 2.0 programs create positive experiences to foster the enjoyment of learning and playing music. It's a great place to start learning music!

 

With a hands on approach, we lay the foundations of music: rhythm, melody and harmony. Students are encouraged to engage with music, using a variety of instruments and methods including their voices!

 

We have found through many years of experience that students who learn the foundations of music in a group have more confidence to go forward in their learning, and are more likely to be team players. After all, thats what musicians do, they play together! 

 

This course is not instrument specific, although we do expose students to the instruments. Students learn about note values, subdivisions, counting, rhythm, dictation, C major scale, using aural exercises, played by the teachers, or using videos, by playing an instrument. This program is specifically designed for younger children who are not yet ready for private instrumental lessons.​

ROCK BAND

For students who have learnt at least one year of music.

Participants work on a repertoire and practice as a band, following instructions from the tutors and understanding how to behave and function as proactive band members. This means they will practice how to count in, work on dynamics, sound tight as an ensemble, and prepare to perform at the end of each Term.

 

We provide a set-list so students can start working on these songs on their own or with their current tutors. Our aim is to showcase and let the participants experience how to work and behave in a work setting (rehearsing and workshopping arrangements for the songs).
