When you think of music and instruments, at the top of the list along with the guitar is the piano or the keyboard. Depending on whom you ask, you will be told that the piano is better for precision and musical theory, whereas the keyboard is better for portability and versatility. Generally, popular music today uses a keyboard, but the piano is an absolute must for all those in serious pursuit of music as a career. Most of the musical geniuses known over decades, have been incredible pianists – from Mozart to the Mozart of Madras, AR Rahman – they are known for their incredible skill in playing the keys.
Our classes at the Bridge, offer you basic and advanced training in both keyboards and piano, depending on your preference.
