Piano Duet study – the student learns to play alongside another pianist. This style is very interesting and helps build team work. Players can do 4-hands or play two pianos at the same time. The two pianists can develop communication and coordination which help them as they become part of ensembles.

The Piano Accompaniment curriculum encourages players to sing in duets, trios. A pianist can learn a lot from joining other players or soloists. They can learn to better communicate with other musicians and to get a deeper understanding of other’s interpretation.
