Advice for Keyboard learning just for fun

Postby jeanieg » Sat May 18, 2013 10:06 am

Hi everyone

I have an 8 year old girl who is keen to learn the keyboard after
she had some lessons in school during Music. She learnt to play
Twinkle Little Star and was very proud of it!

Since she seem so keen on that instrument I thought I would get
her a used keyboard and get a home coach to help her. We are not
pursuing any certificate for it but more just to learn the functions
and basics of the keyboard.

I need advice regarding:
1. Which keyboard do I get? There seem so many!
2. Any one able to recommend a patient and fun coach?
I live in the Upper Bukit Timah area.

Hi,
I have a 8 year old girl also wanting to learn keyboard. I stay in Pasir Ris area. Any one knows of any good teacher/school. Most of the music schools don't teach keyboard - they teach piano.

Would appreciate your help.
Thx!!

Hi crystal mom,

I am in the Pasir Ris area (The Livia) and teach contemporary "sing-and-play" on the piano/keyboard. Mostly I arrange songs the children want to play that approximates their level of competency, though some basic exercises are still required.

If you'd like to find out more, I'm more than happy to meet up with fellow Pasir Risians in the area. My website is: http://deswongmusic.sg

How about Yamaha JMC? They use electone keyboard. Lesson is fun and parents can sit in.
