Students learn and practice specific skills and music during private lessons, and then use that knowledge to study ensemble skills and music theory during group lessons; concurrent enrollment in both private and group lessons is required.
The private lessons expand on listening, review, technique, repertoire, and tone production.
Our bi-weekly reading programme focuses on duets, 4-hands pianos, 8-hands piano, music theory, aural training, note reading, composers, musical eras, and performances.
Piano students will be introduce to Suzuki chamber music, where they will learn and how to perform and accompany small ensembles. This prepares them to play with piano trios & quartets, which eventually leads to playing piano concerto with full orchestra. They will learn about strings tuning, music theory, aural skills and music history that applied to the repertoire. They will also have the opportunity to perform with Seed's world-class faculty members.
There will be performance opportunities at the end of each semester, in which all students will present at least one movement of a chamber music work.
Repertoire is carefully designed in order to build technique and musicality in each student.
