*** Lesson Details ***
At the first lesson, Judy evaluates her students current playing, singing, or writing levels by using a full 30 min. evaluation technique. Then she develops a specific learning program for each student. In piano she determines the best lesson materials and both teaches note reading, tempo and rhythm drills, scales, and other technique. She also has students play by ear as well to further develop their skills. In voice after the evaluation she begins technique drills and exercises on breath control, pitch, tone, ear training and performance. She then teaches the students to incorporate these skills into songs. Judy teaches all
styles of music and encourages her students to learn songs of their choice as well.
In writing she teaches the creative brainstorming process, development of lyrics, and how to build melodies in the key of C, then more difficult writing exercises. A very important component of her training is identifying the innate talents and skills of each student and helping them see develop those personal talents!!
