Why is the Simply Music method so effective? It is a very natural way of learning that comes more easily than having to first depend on reading notes to play.
"Expecting students to read music before they've learned how to play is like expecting childen to read and spell before they've learned how to talk."
-Neil Moore, Simply Music founder.
This method is one that results in a very well rounded musician. Music reading is very important and we have a very gradual and natural way of introducing this after having 30- 50 songs in their repertoire (about a year). But we also realize that there are many other aspects to playing that are important to music too. In this program students will learn accompaniment, improvisation, composition, arrangement, structure, and theory.
Here is what makes Key Wonders different from traditional piano methods:
The quanity of music that the students learn
The quality of music that students learn to play right from the first lessons
The speed in which the students progress
The ease of learning the students experience
Ultimately through the Simply Music Method our purpose is to maximize the likelihood of students acquiring and retaining music as a lifelong companion.
Specifically we are aiming for students to:
Experience their musicianship as a natural self-expression;
Play a vast repertoire covering a broad array of musical styles and genres;
Develop the ability to self-generate. i.e. the ability to progress independently. This includes developing a foundation of music reading, writing, composition, improvisation, arrangement, structure, and theory, etc.
Have a highly positive, self-affirming experience throughout the music learning process;
Here we believe that EVERYONE truly is musical. Come join us and experience the joy in piano that lasts a lifetime.
