What is Keyboard Encounters?

With the emphasis on hands-on, Keyboard Encounters provides an ideal setting in which to develop your musical creativity.

How long Will it Take Me to Learn How to Play?

You'll play simple pieces from the very first day!  In the coming weeks, you'll learn..

  • Songs in all styles that you've always dreamed of playing, including popular, classical, country, blues and jazz
  • Fingerobics - Special keyboard exercises that develop finger dexterity
  • Music reading notation and theory
  • Ensemble playing - group musical experiences that help develop your own playing skills
  • How to plan and evaluate your progress

You'll learn all this at your own pace!

How is the Course Taught?

Keyboard Encounters students are grouped according to age, musical background and goals. 
You can enter this flexible course at any level, depending on your musical experience.  Your instructor has been trained by Yamaha to work with students of all ages and abilities, and can help you decide which level to join.

Why Learn in a Group?

Playing in a group is musically satisfying.  Most music is performed in groups, such as bands, orchestras and choirs.  Learning together strengthens individual rhythm skills and listening habits and develops confidence.  Keyboard Encounters students who wish to share their music with the rest of the class will have the opportunities to perform solos.

What Type of Instrument Do I Need at Home?

You can use a keyboard, digital piano or a high quality acoustic piano.  "Play It Yourself" activities are designed so you can tailor your learning to meet your musical goals on the instrument of your choice.

What Instrument Will I Play in Class?

Classrooms are equipped with Yamaha digital pianos.  These keyboards never need tuning yet rival the sound of acoustic pianos and an array of other instruments.
