There are a few ways to teach someone how to play piano. Most schools will focus on reading for almost a year before you actually learn how to play a song…not a song that you like, but a song from your music book. I know that’s not how I’d like to learn how to play the piano!
Learning an instrument should be fun. You should also learn to play the music that inspired you to want to play. When we teach you to play piano we will teach you to play the songs you want to learn. While teaching you songs we also teach you the music theory behind it.
