Suzuki pedagogy employed for beginners
Students will learn basic piano skills such as hand placement, note reading, note values, pedal use, major and minor scales, expressions, etudes, pieces, memory work, music history, performance techniques, and most of all to have fun learning the piano. I will expect students to have a minimum 67 note keyboard with sustain pedal, or a good piano to use for personal practice time. Each student should spend at least 20-30 minutes daily to start. They must purchase the recommended books.
We will work together to develop a plan of study that focuses on your goals and includes a list of songs or pieces that you would like to play. The first half of the lesson will consist of basic music instruction, such as note-reading, rhythm-counting, scales, arpeggios, music theory and technique. The second half will consist of working on music of your choosing.
