Individual Tutoring in Piano/Keyboard
Jane Leigh Johansen-Oishi
This 4-week course will give individual learners instruction in piano and keyboard according to their level of experience and their needs.
The teacher will meet with the student privately, one-on-one, and will determine the course of study based on the experience and needs of the learner. If the parent has any special requests as to focus, or area of study, that will be foremost. In the case of players with some previous background of lessons in piano/keyboard, we will take up as a starting point where they have left off, and tailor the instruction to fit their current situation, also including the areas listed below in the...
Students will learn to read and write music, understand rhythmic patterns, use good posture and technique, as well as know how harmony is structured, including scales and chords. These are the basic foundations in learning about all music. The learners will accumulate a repertoire based on their musical interests, a variety of songs and compositions from current popular repertoire and also famous classical composers' works.
Homework OfferedWhile there is no "homework," per se, the students will make better progress if they regularly practice the lessons covered in class. This teacher emphatically rejects the traditional concept of requiring a strict practice regimen, which is not psychologically healthy, but instead tends to cause a negativity in attitude. Rather, the student is encouraged to help their own achievements by frequently playing through the materials learned in each lesson in order that they will be ready to go further in the next session. A practice chart with simple sticker rewards can be motivating as a visual display of earnest endeavors. Perhaps even timely other rewards can be fun, and could develop a positive attitude, in knowing that they are doing their part in their personal development. (extrinsic and intrinsic motivation)
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments OfferedThe teacher will give honest feedback after the lesson, in a written memo, to let the parent know how things are going. It's also a good idea to ask the student to give their own assessment of their activities and progress. Listening to the output from the student's playing or demonstration of accumulated knowledge is also a great way to know. Finally, above everything else, is the way the student is feeling about the whole experience. Are they enthusiastic? Do they feel forced? Are they enjoying it? Those are the best indicators.

Aloha! I'm "Teacher Leilani" in the classroom, just for fun, but my name is Leigh Johansen; that's the short form. It's actually Jane Leigh Johansen-Oishi, but what was I thinking there? I have been around many blocks, having just retired in 2019...
