Are you having trouble improving your piano playing skills or reading msical notes?
Solfeggio is a music education method used to teach pitch and the ability
to read music for playing the piano or singing.
Students will have difficulty improving their piano playing skills if they lack musical rhythm, cannot recognize pitch, and/or are unable to read notes smoothly. Those who cannot recognize pitch have special difficulty playing musical notes and mastering music quickly.
If students do not learn these basic skills early in their piano education, they may eventually become stuck, discouraged, and more likely to give up on the piano altogether.
Since most students are not able to gain these skills naturally during their normal piano lessons. They must be learned separately.
Fortunately, I am able to give special intensive training to students needing to improve these essential skills.
I develop an original training menu for each student depending on his/her abilities. My students will see substantial improvement in 1-3 years. Most children will be able to recognize pitch in about a year.
Although it is best to get the pitch, ear and rhythm training when the student is young and just beginning to learn the piano, I gave the solfeggio lessons to a junior high school student, the oldest student to take these lessons in this school. After a year, she was able to recognize pitch almost perfectly and her ability to read music was much improved. I believe that even adult students can profit greatly from solfeggio lessons if they are willing to learn and put forth the effort.
As an additional advantage, those who sing off key can also receive pitch training in this school because I am experienced in giving voice lessons. If you want to excel at Karaoke, this course will help you, too!
Absolute Pitch and Relative Pitch
Absolute pitch, widely referred to as perfect pitch, is the ability to
identify notes without any point of reference. In other words, it is the
ability to identify or re-create a given musical note without the benefit
of a reference tone. For example, if you can play TV’s commercial song
on the piano just by hearing it from TV, there is no doubt that you have
As for absolute pitch, some people naturally possess this ability from birth while others gain it through ear training. This ability should be developed very early in life from the ages of 3 to 6 years old. Unfortunately, it is too late to develop it after 6 years old when ears are fully grown.
However, you can gain relative pitch through training no matter how old you are. So, I recommend you take this training when you start taking piano lessons. Relative pitch is the ability to identify the pitch of notes relative to other notes you’ve heard. If you at least have this ability, you will have no trouble learning the piano.
Of course, it is better to have absolute pitch, but relative pitch is all that is required to develop excellent musical skills. In fact, there are famous musicians who do not possess absolute pitch, yet give great performances, because they have developed relative pitch.
