Overview

Creative Piano Keyboard Skills pushes on from our Essential course, going deeper with practical techniques and overall musicianship. Get your musical ideas onto the piano keyboard by studying things like seventh chords, inversions, blues patterns, chord progressions, sight-reading, and transposition. You'll play from popular songs before writing your own melodies and harmonies. You'll be guided by a pro keyboard instructor in small groups. Once you've learned the keyboard skills shared by professional musicians, producers, and composers, your own music is sure to improve.


Join a global alumni community with the likes of PB London graduate Leona Lewis. Get exclusive masterclasses from the likes of Annie Mac, Nile Rodgers, Trevor Horn, DJ Spoony, Basement Jaxx and more. Our Course Advisors will support you through the enrollment process, so please contact us with any questions.
