In piano lessons at HCM, you’ll learn songs from a broad range of musical genres, such as pop, soul and rock, and will cover techniques including chord progressions, arpeggios and improvisation. Your lessons will be different every single week, and will be adapted to your level, interests and the size of your class.


Here’s just a small selection of the techniques you’ll learn in HCM’s piano and keyboard lessons:

  • Rock, pop, soul, funk and jazz styles
  • Chord theory in the context of live performance
  • Improvisational skills
  • Notation and band chart reading
  • Developing sight-reading and session skills
  • Working with other rhythm section players
  • Embedded music theory and knowledge
  • And finally… songs! These are specifically tailored to help you explore the keyboard techniques you’re learning about and put them into context in bands and ensembles

End of Term Gigs

In addition to weekly music lessons, HCM pianists and keyboard players are encouraged to take part in our end of term gigs and showcases. This helps students gain experience in playing live and in front of an audience, as well as giving useful experience and a new found confidence.


We know you’re keen to see yourself improve as much as we are, so we offer our students RSL graded instrument exams. Our lessons follow the RSL graded syllabus for piano from Debut to Grade 8, and teenage students can link our graded lessons with other activities, such as the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme or music at GCSE level.
