Intense Piano Courses
Jaak Sikk's sightreading method is unique and is based on the psychological and cognitive skills of a human being combined with thorough analysis of sightreading and its components itself.
The course gives you a chance to concentrate on each part of sightreading separately and that way to improve your skills very efficiently. You will discover your talents and weaknesses as a sightreader and will probably get a totally new understanding of the subject.
The course starts with basic skills that are suitable for beginners but as it unfolds, it goes to the level, where professional musicians can for sure find new ideas and get insight in sightreading.
Another bonus of the course is the supporting videos. Many videos that teach different necessary music skills are linked and they help you to get a good overall picture.
Sightreading is seldom taught or learned at all. Therefore there is a big need for a sightreading course. Sightreading is a fundamental and very important skill of every musician. Especially for pianists (keyboard players) sightreading is crucial, because the music sheet of a keyboard instrument is polyphonical and complex.
The course has been revised by a few adult beginner students already. Read a comment on the course here.
Learn to play Allegro B-flat Major K 3 by W.A. Mozart
This course is designed to give you a balanced package of abilities to play the piece itself but also to learn about piano technique, dynamics, articulation and also the philosophical side of music.
It is centered around intense videos on how to play the right notes with right technical motions and a good musical taste. These videos are short, precise and very easy to follow and they are the core and basis of the course.
But just as important and interesting as are the intense learning videos, are the additional videos that are linked. They give you a structured possibility to learn a lot about music in general and dive deeper into piano skills. As the additional learning videos are not obligatory to be successful with the course, it is your own choice, how much you want to watch and follow them.
This course is perfect both for the very beginners and those, who want to learn fast. And it is also fulfilling for people who like diving deeper into the subject.
