Want to have fun and learn how to play piano? Then pick me! :)
I do enjoy teaching all age levels and have experience teaching anywhere from 5 to 65 years old. I currently teach group keyboard classes in an afterschool program in public schools in the Deer Valley District. In my lessons you will learn rhythm (so its okay if you don't naturally have rhythm!), sight reading, memorization, ear training, and much more. I help the students pick music at their skill level that they enjoy. Every week you will get excited as you see yourself improving!
Learning to play takes time and commitment but it also needs to be enjoyable. We will spend 30% of the time on theory and 70% on playing music from the method book, solo book or other.
Learning to play the piano is fun and a huge benefit both intellectually and creatively! The piano is so versatile that you can learn almost every genre of music on it from Beethoven to Rock & Roll!
Learning the piano should be FUN! I don't always use "traditional" piano methods. I love playing music games with my students because they learn so much better when they're having fun. I take students as young as 4.
Experienced piano teacher of 10+ years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of music theory and practice skills. I utilize the Music Tree series of books (although, I do tailor this to student need), and my studio includes my upright Essex piano. Students may purchase books at an area music store or through my studio.
