Instruction in piano covers many areas of playing the instrument. Students can expect to learn about the history and construction of the instrument, as well as explore multiple genres and playing styles, including rock, pop, jazz, blues, gospel/hymn, and classical. Lessons will include learning scales and chords, rhythm and accompaniment styles, as well as developing an ability to improvise. Since the piano is such a ubiquitous instrument to all musical genres and styles, a specific learning focus will be dictated by the student, to which I will tailor lesson materials.
I specialize in teaching music reading, performance skills, chord styling, improvisation and theory.
The most important Part of my teaching - "Hand Positioning and Proper Touch".
Specific instructional method of hand positioning based on muscle structures, physiology of playing (how the arms and body function). Strength of my method - ability to prevent tension, awareness of weight technique and tone production. Students advance quickly and enjoy playing classical masterpieces
I have many years as a 14 year old college level student and work very well with others.
My students receive a well-rounded lesson with a foundational core of theory and exercises. If a student wants to learn a piece immediately, I help them to understand that in order to play the piece well and enjoy it, the foundation is the most important aspect. I cater my lessons to the individual student. Lessons follow a general rule of thumb but no two are exactly alike.
