The Yamaha Piano Course is a private lesson program that caters for beginner to advanced students ages 8yrs and above.

Taught by highly qualified and passionate Yamaha teachers, students will learn from Yamaha’s exclusive Pianoforte curriculum that has been designed and developed by the Yamaha Music Foundation Japan and is now taught to thousands of students throughout the world.

Students will learn by completing a series of progressively graded textbooks (with accompanying CD), that are designed to develop many important musical skills through the study of repertoire pieces, technical exercises, scales and arpeggios, sight reading, keyboard harmony, piano duets and music rudiments (theory).
