    Have you asked the Yamaha school? Pop piano shouldn't be too new.. but with Coldplay and Keane rekindling it these days.. sounds exciting!

    Let us know what Yamaha has to offer, girl

        Will definitely go check out Yamaha and Cristofori during the weekend. Yamaha should be more expensive tho'

          i've always wanted to learn piano!! wanted to learn classical piano from yamaha, but due to time contraint n budget contraint, skipped it...

          i'm kinda interested to take it up if its not too ex and fits into my schedule!!

            Haha...same here, its been my childhood dream!

            I tried taking up classical piano sometime middle of this yr while I was idling at home. Then suddenly, things got busy at work and I had to give it up after a few lessons.
            Thought of taking up pop piano first as classical is alot of work and you need to practice and practice if you wanna sit for exams. Me thinking of playing pop piano first and taking up classical again when I have more time. It may also help cos you sort of know the notes and your finger work is there.

            I am thinking of sat mornings....will you be available? Will put up the cost once I've enquired from Yamaha and Cristofori.

                    my gf bought a keyboard to try out first .. she's also doing grade 1 now as i am but in time to come, the small keyboard won't be enough and the feel of the key is different from normal accoustic pianos as well. so really up to you on what type of music styles you want to pursue

                      Hey Dozalot,

                      I am also looking to take up pop piano. In fact, I did a google online and found this school. . Play By Ear Music School

                      I called up and spoke to one of the staff Andrew and he is really helpful. I am thinking of going down next week to check, and if possible sign up for one of the pop piano improvisation course. He told me registration is $20 and fee is $120-$140 per month per session of 45 min.

                      If you are interested, maybe we can go together to check it out?

                      BTW, Any cotters heard of this schools? Is it any good?

                          Hi Smartcat,

                          Have you sign up the Play By Ear Music School Pop Piano course? Well, I have signed up for the Yamaha POP piano course that they mentioned earlier on. Well, it seems the same for the POP piano course.

                          However, I'm only interested in the play by ear learning. The webby is very interesting thanks.
                          Keep us updated on the courses.

                              I just took up piano a month plus ago at Music Clef, Suntec Level 3, above Mango.
                              Fees are around $126 monthly. It's one-to-one session.
                              You may go down to book a free trial session with them.

                              They do classical piano, pop piano, drums, guitars, singing as well.

                              It's never too old to start learning. I'm turning 24 this year.
