Students will need a keyboard or a piano. It is recommended to point the camera at the keys if possible. Optional: The teacher uses the iReal Pro App throughout lessons. Students are welcome to purchase it for use at home, but it is not a requirement for the course. https://www.irealpro.com/ Purchase is available through Google Play(Android), or the App Store (iPhone, iPad, Mac). Cost: $14.99 ($5 in-app purchase for blues package.)
20 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
