Thank you for visiting my web site. Here you will learn about how I teach and you will get to see some of the wonderful things that happen here in the piano studio. We have fun and we learn a lot of great things about making music, setting goals, and the many benefits of consistent effort!
Finding music that motivates kids is an important part of my job! Kids can opt for classical, lyrical, popular, jazz, Disney, or video game music to supplement their method pieces. Once they have reached a certain level, we can focus solely on their favorite styles.
Students learn efficient technique that will serve them well as they advance. I think it is also important that kids can play piano music they create themselves, so improvisation is an important part of lessons.
Practice is required. I strongly believe practice makes happy kids! Students learn what works for them to ensure piano time fits into the week consistently, and get to experience the result of effort (large or more modest) over time. The main thing to remember is that consistency is key!
Students have the opportunity to create their own music compositions utilizing concepts they have learned in piano.
As they progress, kids interested in composition learn to compose longer, more complex pieces that just amaze me. The most efficient way to get these ideas down is to become familiar with music composition software. Through the studio account, students have access to the Flat platform both at home and during lessons.
Students can choose to input music to GarageBand and experiment with different instrument combinations and effects. It sounds so good! Garageband is an amazing tool available for free on all Apple computers, phones, and tablets.
