Children taking piano lessons discover the basis of rhythm, develop a sense for melody and learn the rich and versatile music notions, as well as the dynamics and nuances.
Three stages comprise a standard lesson. At its beginning, a review of the previous lesson is undertaken in order to establish the daily practice of the pupil and to instigate a sense of responsibility towards the course and the instructor. Afterwards, new songs or scores are discovered. In the end, some time is dedicated to improvisation and free expression, in order to allow for the artistic development of the pupil.The learning objectives until the end of the school year include:
- ability to play a few pieces of music, some of them by heart
- atteinment of sufficiant independence of both hands
