Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will learn the basics of music and playing the piano. They will learn to use the notes on the piano in Middle C and C 5 finger positions.  They will learn some of the notes on the music staff, both treble clef and bass clef.  They will learn the melodies in the first half of the Faber Piano Adventures Primer Level Lesson Book. 
I am a retired public school music teacher.  I graduated from Appalachian State University in Boone, NC with a  Bachelors of Music Education.  I have taught music to all grades in the public school system, but spent most of time in elementary and middle school music. I have taught private piano lessons for many years in my home to all ages, ranging from 5 years old to adults.  I have taught online for more than 5 years and enjoy this a great deal!  I am also certified in Reading and ESL and enjoy working with all ages of students. 
Each week, learners will be encouraged to upload a video of themselves playing one of the songs they have learned that week. They will also be encouraged to learn the songs on the assigned pages, and complete worksheets (coloring and drawing activities) that are sent home each week.
