Piano Lessons

I remember quite well what it was like to be a beginner, struggling with teachers that didn’t quite understand how to make the lessons engaging. I like to emphasize the ‘playing’ aspect of playing the piano, and although there will be some hard work involved --- from practicing piano technique, to reading notes and memorizing scales, to understanding rhythm -- I think you will find it motivational to be able to play songs after just a few short weeks.

Beginners :
Sitting at piano, Learning piano components, Positioning hands, Pressing keys, Naming fingers, Knowing Key Names, Playing scales, Playing chords, Playing intervals, Recognizing notes on a staff, Recognizing beats and timing of notes, Understanding all marks on a sheet of music, Adding style to music, Learning some Key signatures.

Intermediate: More Scales, Chord changes, More intervals, How to change Key signatures, How to write music, How to play in a band.

Overview

I have been teaching piano for over 10 years which began as a way to make money during college. I would tutor the student that I met in my music classes. Once I started teaching my son I added children as students all of which have been referrals from my sons school, and I seem to be the unofficial piano teacher of his elementary school.
