Piano Lessons for Beginners
Many established musicians have begun their musical career with piano lessons. And for most people learning music starts with piano lessons too. If you want to learn piano from the scratch, it is recommended to start as early as possible. Learning to play the piano is a very complex process which requires a strong foundation in all key areas of playing the piano and also a great deal of knowledge in musical theory. This is why all beginner students need to also start learning theory as early as possible.
At EPA, we offer special classes for novice pianists. Our beginners’ course will teach you to identify notes on the keyboard and read them in different scores, play scales, arpeggios, different piano exercises as well as learn repertoire piece. This course is aimed to introduce the beginner learners to the basics of playing the piano and keyboard. It will also enable the learners to lay a sound foundation in classical piano.
Aspiring beginner pianists, who have never learned to play the piano before and wish to start developing their piano playing skills can apply for this course.
Below are some of the things that you will learn in EPA’s Course for Beginners:
What will be included in your lessons: At EPA, we implement the European teaching methods of playing the piano which will focus on the three main area of piano playing – technique development, mind, memory and focus development and the development of the emotional expression while playing repertoire pieces.

Some of the key aspects covered in this course include:
- The Notes of the White Keys and the Black Keys

At EPA, all beginner students are taught sight reading on a regular basis as sight-reading is a very important skill to master in order to be able to learn any piano piece faster.
Developing quickness, strength and endurance of fingers:
Special and personalised attention is given to any beginner student in order to start developing piano technique as early as possible. Sound technique is a foundation of any good piano playing.
Critical Inner Skills:
Along with technical training, students are taught to develop certain emotional and mental skills to improve their engagement with a musical piece. After all, expressive performance is much more than merely playing the notes in the right sequence and at the right speed.
At EPA, all piano lessons for beginners are designed to offer a holistic and individualised training to all students, allowing them to develop all the essential skills required to play the piano in a shortest possible time-frame.
