- Levels Taught:
After learning a series of simple melodies, the student learns to begin reading the Grand Staff, finding middle C and other notes, and to identify rhythmic notation such as quarter notes and half notes. By the end of Faber Level 2 the student can play and read waltzes, Christmas tunes, folk songs and more. Surya uses the Faber Piano Adventures books and teaches Primer Level, Level 1 and Level 2.
Many students prefer to take Beginning Piano in conjunction with or as an add-on to voice lessons or drum lessons.

Hi! My name is Surya and I've been teaching private lessons since 2003. I'm a music educator and I got my Bachelors of Music from the Oberlin Conservatory. I teach voice, drums and beginning piano. My focus has been primarily on teaching young people. I love connecting people to music and helping them bring their whole selves into the process. Check out my website suryamusiclessons
