Lesson Details

All lessons are taught at the students' location.

I have a 7 mile travel radius from my home. Please txt or email me with an approximate location to find out if I travel to your area.

If your location is outside my travel radius I may travel there for an additional travel fee.

 

Each lesson builds on the concepts and skills learned in prior lessons.

All lessons include sight reading, ear training, scales, arpeggios and chord progressions when the student is ready. 

Lessons incorporate things that appeal to different learning styles.

For example, a visual learner may really enjoy the flashcards used to help learn the notes on the staff. 

For an audible learner they may look forward to hearing me play a new musical passage before talking about it.

 Clapping a rhythm before playing it can really help a kinesthetic learner. 

I provide an opportunity for students to perform in a recital twice a year to show family and friends their progress.

Lesson Books

For Young Beginners: 

I use the Bastien piano method. Students will be excited and engaged with the progress they make.

For 5-7 yr olds the method includes 2 books.

For 8 and up the method includes 4 books.

For Adult Beginners:

I use the Alfred Adult All-in-One Course

 

For more advanced kids and adults the repertoire is decided on a case by case basis. 

*All books (lesson, ear training, recital, etc.) are an additional cost
