"Learning to play the Piano or Keyboard is largely a process of committing skills to instinct, of developing the necessary motor skills or what is sometimes known as "finger memory". And only way to achieve this by practicing - repeating the same thing over and over until it becomes automatic!!" 

Eastern Fare Music Foundation (EFMF) offers two courses for Piano and Keyboard – certified and non-certified in Koramangala 1st Block, H.S.R. Layout and Bellandur branches in Bangalore and Rajgarh branch in Guwahati.

Certified course at Eastern Fare Music Foundation is offered from UK based Trinity College London's performing arts examinations division.

                Non-Certified Keyboard Courses
EFMF also offers a non-certified course for working professionals, house wives, people who wish to learn Piano or Keyboard as a hobby and people looking to learn contemporary music. But at the same time, this course also offers limitless scope for musical expression to those willing to devote the time and practice to it. The course can, therefore, be used either as an introductory guide to the first steps of learning to play the instrument or as the basis for a more serious study of music theory, music notation and more advanced techniques. 

The non-certified courses for keyboard and piano include 8 (Eight) months of Beginners program, 6 (Six) months of Intermediate program and 6 (Six) months of Advance training in contemporary music.
