Description

Class Experience

Students will learn the proper way to hold their hands and wrists , and how to play on the keys. 
Students will learn a couple of simple , beginner scales and chords. 

Students will experience playing along with another player, which will be myself or another student. 

One goal is to boost the confidence of the student , and ease any nervousness or concent about playing music. Each student will develop a level of competence at a few key piano skills. 

The student will experience what it is like to play piano and have a better idea if it is something they may want to pursue. 

Piano is complementary to any other instrument the student may already be learning, or it is a perfect starting instrument. 
I have 20+ years experience, as a music teacher.  I have taught piano, electric keyboard, guitar, and general music classes, in both the classroom and private settings. 
I was head of the music department at a private high  school in Maryland. 
I taught private piano and guitar lessons at a guitar shop, for 5 years, in addition to my own private students in my studio. 
I have a bachelor's degree in music education, from Towson University, plus graduate studies in music education. 

I will give the student things to practice between lessons. I will post any videos or print outs in the Outschool classroom. 
Piano or Electric piano / keyboard. 
For electric instruments - A place to plug the instrument in , and still have their device visible for zoom, or batteries as needed for the instrument. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Informal assessment and ongoing communication with the student. 
If the parent desires a written assessment , I can do that , per request. 
35 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
I will provide any resources needed. They will be posted as videos and print outs , in the Outschool classroom.
