Tritone Piano Series
Tritone Music School proudly uses our own unique method books, which has been developed by Chieko and Tom Garling along with other teachers who have been delivering lessons at our school. This method teaches students to make the connection between the pitches (what you hear) and the theory (what you know). As a result, reading and memorizing becomes easier, and music becomes much more personal, joyful and fulfilling. This skill makes the possibilities endless. Many of our students are good composers/arrangers! Please contact us for more details.
