Description

Class Experience

Students will learn finger numbers, keys on the piano, Treble Clef and Bass Clef notes, note values, counting beats, finger exercises, and simple songs for each hand alone and both hands. Learners also experience recording themselves in a video format to submit to Mrs. Pauli for feedback each week.
Mrs. Pauli has taught piano lessons for over 25 years after earning a Bachelor's in Music from California State University, Long Beach. She has been a teacher on Outschool since April 2020. She arranges her own music from the public domain and provides it to learners.
Homework will be practice time in between viewed FLEX class video postings and a few worksheets that can be printed. A total of approximately 20 minutes, 3-4 different times during the week, should be enough to secure the information and be prepared for the next lesson. Slides from the weekly slideshow may be printed at the parent's discretion.  Students need to be able to view the screen while at their keyboard to attempt the songs while watching the demonstrations and for recording a sample of their playing to submit to Mrs. Pauli during the week. Printed slides are great for practice time when learners are taking a break from screen-time.
Learners will need to view the videos and new music on their screen while sitting at their piano or keyboard. The music will be provided and can be printed or viewed online for praciticing. Learners are NOT required to purchase any books or materials to participate in this class since Mrs. Pauli arranges all of the public domain music herself and provides it in the slideshow. Having paper and a pencil to take notes is helpful for some learners.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
This class will provide youtube videos safely on the Outschool classroom page. Google slideshows will be provided to accompany the videos each week and can be printed at the parents' discretion.
