Digital piano

The piano is a universal instrument fit for most genres and is essential in music production and songwriting.


In the beginner course, piano level 1, we learn different scales and chords, and start playing simple songs right away. We explore different techniques and the most common chord inversions. Through exercises you will get the basic knowledge of the instrument you need. During the course you will play, alone or with others.

In the advanced piano piano level 2 course, we build on the beginner’s course, and learn more advanced techniques and styles. Through exercises we work to develop scope, technique, speed and intonation so that you develop as an instrumentalist. The course gives you musical development to become a better performer on your instrument and a better basis for interaction and solo playing. We recommend two beginners’ courses to participate on the advance course, or that you already can some chords and play some songs.

All our courses focus on the joy of playing music, as well as mastering the instrument on every step of the way. The courses are usually in small groups consisting of 3 to 5 participants.

Our courses are largely tailored to the skills of the participants. The courses are originally in Norwegian but can be adapted to accommodate the English speaking students. To see when the next gitar course will start and to sign up for the course please visit our Norwegian page.
