Something different at Winnipeg's River Heights School of Music!
We now have Voice and Piano combination lessons.
A private 45 minute class where the student learns piano AND voice!
Only open to those who have studied voice and or Piano for at least a year
Students sing all kinds of music from their favorite artists to classical arias. Our voice teachers all have a university degree in music specializing in voice and sing everything from pop and jazz to opera. Our teachers all have performance backgrounds as well. Just a sample of what a voice student will learn in singing lessons includes how to breathe properly, how to increase their range, proper pitch, how to project and stage presence. We provide a professional accompanist who rehearses with the students and plays for them at the recitals.
Beginner piano lessons involve correct posture when sitting at the piano, correct hand and finger shapes over the keyboard, playing the keys and musical concepts like rhythm reading and then note reading.
Piano classes tend to start with the same music books (Faber, Bastien) but then can move on to RCM celebration series or methods more suited to the students interest.
While piano lessons tend to rely heavily on classical music, students can and do learn other styles of piano playing.
