Learning to play piano is a great introduction to music and lays a great foundation for all other instruments and vocals. My goal with piano students is to give them a firm foundation in music theory, technique, sightreading, rhythms, and most importantly, enjoying the MUSIC you are playing!
With this in mind, I tailor my lessons to students musical preferences, while still expecting each student to learn the basics of note reading, rhythm, proper finger technique, scales and chords. Because I work with a lot of singers, I do a lot of work on chord structure/theory, how to accompany yourself, and playing by chord charts as well as sheet music.
Students will be required to purchase music and/or books as needed. Please bring any previous or current music to the first lesson as well as staff paper (notebook or loose leaf) if you have it.
