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

At the beginner’s course, you learn different scales and chords, and you start playing simple songs right away. You explore various techniques and the most common chord inversions.

At the advanced course, you add to the knowledge you’ve gained at the beginner’s course and learn more advanced techniques and styles. We recommend you complete two beginner’s courses before you enrol in this course.

Our courses are largely tailored to the skills of the participants. The courses are originally in Norwegian but can be adapted to English speaking students.

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.
