This Flex Piano Class #5 is for students that have knowledge of notes and skills of primer level material. In a flexible schedule, they will learn familiar kids’ songs as well as basic composing skills to create an original composition.

Class experience

Students will continue to learn basic skills in music and use them to play some familiar kids' tunes in the Pretime Kids' Songs book. Students will also learn about basic skills needed to create an 8 measure melody. 

I am a retired public school music teacher.  I graduated from Appalachian State University in Boone, N.C. with a Bachelors of Music Education.  I have taught music to all grades in the public school system, but spent most of my 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 year old students to adults.  I have also taught online for almost 5 years and enjoy this a great deal!  I am also certified in Reading and ESL.  I enjoy working with students of all ages! 
Homework Offered
I would like to encourage the students to practice the skills they have learned each week for a few minutes each day. A certain time amount is not suggested, because each student learns at a different pace. Practice at home will be needed in order to master the skills learned in the videos. It is my ambition to create a fun and inviting flex classroom, which will encourage students to want to practice in order to master the skills learned. Additional written activities will be sent each week for students to complete. These activities help to master the skills that they are learning in the videos.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
No formal assessments will be given. Informal assessments will occur throughout each lesson through their responses uploaded in the Outschool classroom.
Grades Offered
Learners in this class will need access to a piano (or keyboard).  A full-sized keyboard (with 88 keys) is not a requirement, but I would like to suggest that the keys on the keyboard are full-sized (not miniature keys).  I have taught several students that needed to share a keyboard at the same time, and that has also worked very well.  

Each student is asked to have a pencil with them at each class, as well as the activity/music sheets that I send prior to class (as needed).

Each student will also need to purchase the "Pretime Piano Kids’ Songs" Primer Level Book.  This book is a supplementary book published by the same company as the Faber Piano Series.  They will use this Kids’ Songs Book as a basic source for the class, along with staff paper and handouts to help create their original composition.

In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Videos that have been uploaded to Youtube as unlisted videos will be used in classes. These videos have been embedded into the Outschool classroom so that students will not need to access them outside of the classroom.
