Hello! My name is Kayla and I've been teaching piano lessons for 5 years. I use different curriculum for each grade level but I mostly stick to the Piano Lessons series by James Bastien. I started playing piano almost 15 years ago using the James Bastien books to start and feel that the curriculum is informative and provides one of the best basic, beginner exercises for piano technique and understanding.
My goal is to make sure that each student is comfortable at the piano and with me as their teacher, as well as to make sure that have a basic understanding of music theory, piano technique, and music reading.
My teaching philosophy is students first. I want people to be able to fulfill their passion of creating beautiful music and acquire a new and very important skill. I order to do that I think students must feel comfortable with their teacher, especially when looking to them for guidance. My style is fairly laid back, I like to make my lessons fun and enjoyable but I do
teach basic piano technique and performance for children all levels and ages.
I teach classical piano. I include theory and ear training with piano lessons. I use some music games and play activity for young students. I have some materials that I provide but books are purchased by the parents.
I am a Music Graduate from the University of North Texas. I have been teaching for 25 years. I teach piano to be fun for the student. Learning songs they enjoy (any style, not just classical). Learn basic reading and technique along the way. Keep them inspired by making lessons fun!
