About PianoEasy About Anneka FAQs

Do you think I can learn to play the piano?

Yes.

In 20 years there has not been one PianoEasy student that couldn’t learn how to play. If you want to get good you have to make a bit of a commitment and put time in.

Do I have to sing?

Absolutely.

Singing is our birth right and the instrument that we can already play without any further tools. You don’t have to sing well though. You can sing badly or out of tune, or in a whispery voice. It’s so great when within a year you can accompany yourself to any song that you can sing; you don’t want to miss out on that fun! (For those not keen on singing yet, we do plenty of instrumental songs though. Movie themes, blues improvisation, classical, jazz and we learn how to play the melody with the right hand while you’re using chords in the left.)

Do we learn to read?

Very much so.

Reading (and writing!) is a wonderful skill, which allows you to access other people’s music and for music to be stored without having to memorise it. Traditional players often comment that reading music becomes much easier and makes more sense once they learn with PianoEasy.

Are there PianoEasy exams?

No exams.

You’ll know how you’re doing from experiencing your increased ability and knowledge, from seeing how your piano repertoire is growing and how you’re getting more and more “safe pieces” that you can trot out any time. You’ll notice how over time you’ll be able to tackle more and more advanced music. PianoEasy does nurture opportunities for sharing your music, encouraging piano clubs, play dates and piano parties.

How long does it take?

It takes the rest of your life.

There’s always more music to learn, but you’ll find that it’s about the journey, not the destination.
