The Way To Play!
With footy finals fever running hot, PianoEasy is supporting the Dockers by teaching all players the Freo Dockers song, whether they like it, or not ! Check out the super cute video going viral on the internet at the moment.
PianoEasy is Fremantle’s own piano school in the new PianoEasy Cottage Studio just near Fremantle Hospital. PianoEasy’s Founder and Director Anneka Pearton has adults and kids playing all their favourite songs and pieces in record time. PianoEasy uses internet technology, like free video links and apps, yet brings back the old fashioned fun that comes from gathering around the piano for a play and sing along.
As long as they are willing to put some time in, PianoEasy players of all backgrounds and abilities can pretty much play any song or piece they like in a relatively short time. Not only do people become fine pianists, they also learn to read, write, compose, improvise and arrange music. All this while having fun making music with others, learning from each other and becoming comfortable playing music in front of other people.
New classes starting Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Ring Anneka to join, or to come to the free session this Saturday 26th September at 9.30am.
