For young beginners, the student will be oriented to Piano through black Key pieces that explore the range of the keyboard. This is followed by the off-staff note reading which teaches the student the keyboard letter names and basic rhythms.
I am a big believer in teacher-student duets for younger kids.

When I was in college I took piano pedagogy and I learned that Playing with the beginning student is one of the best ways to improve their playing, they tend to model their playing from their teacher so that benefits alone is worth it. It does make the simple piece sounds more grown-up.

The method book that I am using is the Piano Adventures Curriculum by Faber and Faber. This method book is based on discovery, creativity, and adventures through music making. There are 4 books in each level. Lesson, Performance, Theory, and Technique.

There is also an additional supplementary book that is essential for student progress. A supplementary Library that motivates practice. The ...

I would assess the student's capability and begin with the level appropriate for the student. For new students with no experience, I would start out with simple hand positioning and playing the piano firsthand. We'll learn as we go with fine details of reading notation and techniques. I will introduce one or two subject to cover for each lesson. For students that have more experience and are at the beginner level, I will introduce technical practices and assign a piece of music. As for intermediate and advance, we will cover technical practice, assigned music, and music theory.

I have been playing piano for 40 plus years and have taught many different age groups. I like to teach students to read music and play various types of chords, scales and progressions. I also teach students to play by ear and learn to improvise. I will keep lessons fun, engaging, interesting and challenging.

James is an amazing teacher! My son has taken piano lessons from him for several years. James not only taught lessons and theory, he helped my son prepare “Prelude in C Major” by Bach for a school talent show. They also worked on Erik Satie’s “Gymnopedie”. One year, James helped him prepare a song to sing at a talent show and even came to the show and accompanied him on piano. My son has written songs that James has helped him refine. When my son showed up with a ukulele, James was able to teach him how to play it as well. We love James!

Firstly, I want you to learn and enjoy the process of learning, including theory study. I struggled finding motivation to learn theory when I was a youth, and I have come to truly love and appreciate it as a musician now. This means I believe in working with a metronome!

I teach age ranges 5 and up, working primarily out of the Fabre book series, with additional materials for those wanting to play with chord structures.

I have experience working with both high functioning autistic and dyslexic clients, and I find great joy in discovering the best teaching methods for each student’s particular needs and goals.

What I do not teach is blues and jazz. I’m learning this genre and hope to one day be able to pass what I learn onto my students!

Keep learning, always. 🤓
