The piano is a great jump off point for the study of all other instruments. Here we teach students to learn to read notes in the Treble and Bass Clefs while also learning improvisation and songwriting. The piano is physically easy to play right out the gate, making it much quicker than any other instrument to create sound. This is great for those who need immediate satisfaction and reinforces desire to play more often. The piano or keyboard is also great for understanding how music works, visually the piano gives everyone patterns that help students see music in a linear way. Meaning kids and adults will see relationships and patterns much easier than any other instrument which is why college music students must have 2 years of piano under their belt before graduation. The most important part of piano is the use of both hands, which develops the left-right brain communication.
At Creative Soul, we focus on fundamentals of good piano playing while introducing modern or popular music that students want to learn or currently listen to. This approach keeps students excited and earns them recognition from their peers. Students will learn sight-reading, theory, chords, transposition, and improvisation.
In the past, the was a “no pain, no gain” philosophy regarding piano technique. But thanks to physical medicine and the study of ergonomics that philosophy is no longer valid with piano technique. Creative Soul instructors have been trained to use a contemporary technique that facilitates good development while playing all styles of music.
Being able to perform is a big part of sharing a special skill that students have developed. It takes practice and we want to reward and recognize our students. We have free twice a year recitals for all our students at such acclaimed venues like the McDavid Studio at Bass Hall and various other performance opportunities for our group class students at venues such as the Wood Shed Smoke House on the river, Central Market, & TV famous Chef Pointe for the students to jump into.
Historically acoustic pianos have been the instrument of choice for most lessons. But recent technology has lead to digital pianos that have sampled sound from the world’s finest concert grand pianos. These keyboards are fun and provide an opportunity for an intense and special learning experience, where students can use many voices built into these electronic keyboards, making them into any instrument, band or orchestra. Some of these instruments they have never even heard of. At Creative Soul, we have both so that our students have the opportunity to play on a real acoustic piano and experience the keyboard technology so they do not miss out on the fun.
