Description

Class Experience

By the end of each class learners will have learned and practiced fundamental keyboard concepts and skills.  Since this even private class, learners will be provided an abundance of individualized attention and feedback!

Learners do not need any piano experience. They should be set up at a keyboard so that I can see their hands and the keys and hear them well. 

Week 1:
Finger numbers, notes of Middle C position on the piano and on the bass and treble clefs, high and low sounds on the keyboard.

Week 2:
Measures, the grand staff, quarter notes, half notes and respective rests, 4/4 time and repeat signs.

Week 3:
For learners who need more review, we will continue to review Middle C position. We'll also review dotted-half and whole notes and respective rests and steps on the staff.

For learners ready to move on we will learn the notes of C Position, dotted-half and whole notes and respective rests, skips and steps, ties and 3/4 time.

Week 4:
For learners who need more review, we will review Middle C position and other concepts previously learned with the addition of piano, forte and mezzo forte dynamic levels.

For learners ready to move on we will review C position and other concepts previously learned with the addition of piano, forte and mezzo forte dynamic levels.

Please note that this is a fun, fast-paced course! 
 I have an MM and BM in music. I have taught learners of this age range music and ESL since 2002 online and in person. 
Learners are encouraged to practice all skills and concepts at home. 
 4 files available upon enrollment
Learners should be set up at a piano, acoustic or electric, in such a way that I can hear them well and see their keyboard. The PDF worksheets I provide act as your piano book for the course. They can be printed and placed in a hard binder or clipboard and rested on the piano. I also provide the music on screen share incase learners do not have a printer. I will use fun, colorful PDF's to introduce each concept and skill. No additional piano repertoire book is needed. I will demonstrate each concept and technique.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Informal assessments are taken throughout the class to reinforce the concepts learned and skills acquired.  
25 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
I will screen share fun, colorful PDF's to introduce each concept and skill. No additional piano repertoire book is needed. I will demonstrate each concept and technique.

It would be greatly appreciated if a parent/guardian could be available off-camera for at least the 1st few minutes of class to assist with technology, if needed.

I aim to make learners feel as comfortable and welcome as possible freeing up time for parents/guardians.
