Lessons in musicianship skills are all about the development of the core musical skills that support your path into the world of music.

Lessons focus on the four main areas of listening, singing, creating, and performing. They can include a wide range of activities, such as:

  • an introduction to music vocabulary and symbols
  • familiarity with the piano keyboard
  • an introduction to the fundamentals of note reading
  • ear training
  • rhythm skills
  • musical form and structure
  • composition
  • creativity and improvisation
  • music appreciation
  • music history

But because everyone is different, musicianship lessons are customised to suit you and your particular interests, experience, and skill level. What this means is if you have no interest in learning how to read music but would love to know more about how rhythm works, then that’s what we’ll do. Or if you’d like to learn more about how chords work but aren’t interested in playing them, or have a burning desire to understand more about music history, then we can do that, too.

For younger musicians, lessons can also include a focus on fine and gross motor skills, coordination of hands, numbers and counting, note names, and keyboard familiarity, all essential skills to make piano or singing lessons more enjoyable.

Musicianship skills can also be combined with piano and singing. To learn more all the possibilities go to Contact Discovering Music
