A well rounded fun teaching style that keeps all students motivated and interested. Stacey works had to insure that students develop strong technical and theory skills while growing as creative musicians.
For piano, students will learn keys on the piano, chords, scales, key signatures, grand staff, read music and play songs of all styles, including classical, pop, jazz, folk, gospel, indie, and traditional. There are children and adult beginners and intermediate workbooks that will be referred to students. I also have a lot of material I like to use that I've designed.
Perhaps my most popular lesson, I teach piano to all ages and all levels. I am particularly skilled in the area of accelerating the beginner/early intermediate pianist into a high level of musicianship. I customize my piano instruction to each individual student, so that each can develop a plan to achieve personal growth and success through musicianship.
I've been teaching the piano for over 35 years and my students have gone on to CCM, NKU, and one has become the music director of IHM. I specialize in classical as well as the chord approach which leads to improvisation. I use a variety of method books and have them to loan out. Having found that each book has its good and bad aspects, I pick the good from each method and use it with my students. I have the following tools available for your lessons: piano, keyboard, guitars, amps, and midi recording devices. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!
It is my dream to share the beauty of music with people, and help them to enjoy the music! I am a very experienced teacher. I have taught both music class in an elementary school and more than 30 private piano students, from children to adults. They have great achievements on ABRSM exam and competitions. I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of piano skills
