Simply Music piano instruction
« on: February 02, 2014, 08:52:46 PM »
This is in follow up to my post, yesterday (under Studentís Corner), concerning Simply Music piano instruction.  As the post received no replies, I wanted to raise the topic here on Teaching, as Simply Music offers a provocative alternative to traditional piano education.  I am interested in othersí opinions, particularly from piano teachers.  Based on the introduction I attended yesterday, Simply Music offers a different approach to learning piano.  They teach piano, in group lessons, and without sheet music in the beginning.  Students learn songs and, apparently, some level of music theory, and later also learn to read music. 

It sounds like it could be very effective Ė particularly for beginners.  I wish it was around when one of my sons took piano lessons, at around 10 years old.  While he hated the lessons and practice, he had talent.  It broke my heart when he quit after only a few months.  I think Simply Music may avoid this for many.  Anyway, the introduction was mostly about how great the program is, testimonials, etc., but was light on what the curriculum consists of. As a late intermediate level adult (I can read music well and play by ear), Iím not sure what their program can offer me.  I appreciate any comments on their program, as it interesting to hear about a new approach to piano education.

I am interested in new ideas on piano teaching. This system could be revolutionary, however what they write on the web page is very vague. It is impossible to know what it is about without buying the program?
