Piano / Keyboard Classes

 

The keyboard/piano is tied with guitar as the top instrument that novices desire to learn. Some experts believe that piano is better for precision and musical theory whilst keyboard is better for portability and versatility. Today, mainstream musicians make use of the keyboard in their compositions and productions, but for the music purists, the piano is an absolute must especially if students are in serious pursuit of music as a career. 

From Mozart to India’s own A.R. Rahman, most musical geniuses are and have been incredibly skilled pianists. At Rainbow Bridge, we offer basic and advanced training for both keyboard and piano, depending on the student’s preference. Our syllabus is based on Western Classical theory, but given our personalised training, we encourage students to pursue genres of their choice.
