With some 300 years of music, the piano has an enviable collection to choose from. But what will you play?
Everybody has a different motivation for wanting to play a musical instrument. For some, their choice of instrument is shared by an appreciation of a particular style of music; others decide to learn simply because their friends or relatives play already. Yet in the majority of cases, the principal deciding factor is the sound it makes - and who could fail to be impressed by the beautiful and persuasive, yet complete sound of the modern pianoforte: an instrument that is as sympathetic to jazz and contemporary idioms as it is to Classical repertoire.
But before you embark on your musical journey, think carefully about choosing an experienced and qualified professional. Whilst most amateur musicians should be able to correct errors in notes and rhythm, only a professional teacher with specialist knowledge and skills will understand what it takes to develop your playing across a more expansive and challenging plane.
