A to G intelligently utilizes colour to make repeated melodies and motives more recognizable and
really helps students put a face to the music they are looking at.
A to G takes full advantage of colour, and its usefulness in making symbols, notations and musical patterns more recognizable.

At A to G, we love teaching the lessons in your home. It allows us to receive credit for our hard-work to its fullest with parents listening in.
And parents enjoy taking advantage of parent-teacher discussions!
For very young piano students, travelling to a studio or music school for a piano lesson can be a little bit scary.
The anxiety oflearning a new skill in unfamiliar surroundings can be uncomfortable.
Add competition with other students and you may, sooner or later, have a child who doesn’t want to take piano lessons anymore.
Children are more relaxed in familiar surroundings.
The presence of a parent or two in the house can encourage a young piano student to play their best to please Mom and Dad and earn their praise.
A child’s goal to learn a song can be supported by having the ones they want to impress listening nearby.
Also, you- the parent- can better judge the quality of instruction by being able to listen in on piano lessons, even fully participate, which unlike many schools – A to G encourages.
The problems for adults and teens who travel to piano lessons are time and cost.
Scheduling 30 minutes to an hour for a lesson during the day can be a challenge for these two busy groups.
Adding another hour of travelling time doesn’t help the situation. The cost of getting to the lesson,
whether by car or transit, can make the total cost of the lesson a burden.
Doesn’t having your lesson on the piano you use for practicing make sense?
Familiarity with the instrument makes playing easier and more relaxed.
Plus! Your teacher has access to the piano keys, the wall (for important diagrams and aids)
and can also help you with optimizing the practice environment and set-up.
There are many advantages to piano lessons taught at your home by a trained piano teacher, no matter what the age of the student.
Almost everyone learning to play the piano, whether adult or child, wants to read music and play a song as soon as possible.
But the process of learning scales, key signatures and matching black and white keys to black and white notes in music books
before being able to play their favourite song can dampen a student’s enthusiasm.
Some may even become frustrated give up their dream of playing the keyboard.
However, a new piano teaching system using colours allows students of all ages to learn how to play a song quickly,
even by the end of their first lesson. The colour method provides an accelerated learning experience for all piano students
that encourages further studies in piano repertoire and technique.
Most of us learn our colours at a very early age with a very high level of confidence.
