I've been playing piano and keyboard instruments for 30 years, and teaching for 12.
I'll break it down as much as you need. I am even happier to discuss more difficult musical topics.
Students interested in studying piano will learn basic technique, keyboard harmony, improvisation, and utilizing the keyboard for the purposes of composing and arranging.
My lesson plans vary for each student, but my piano teachings include various objectives. The main objectives include piano posture, playing scales of all tonalities, phrasing, dynamics, creativity/improvisation exercises, fingering techniques, music theory, teaching of songs and pieces from various composers, strength-building for hands and wrists, sight-reading and overall musicianship skills. I typically use Alfred Basic Piano books to start, followed by other resources. Let's have fun!!
