I welcome learners of all identities and backgrounds into my classes. I will post instructions in the outschool classroom, for labelling the piano keys. I recommend that the student has already taken my Introduction to Beginner Piano Course. My teaching style is fun and relaxed. I value each student and treat them as an individual with an individual learning style. Students will each get a chance to play what they are working on, in class. I will work both with the group , and with...
Students will learn the basic symbols used in standard musical notation , what they are for and what they are called. Students will be able to play some simple music , by reading the notation. They will become familiar with keeping a steady beat, while playing on the piano. The students will reduce any anxiety they may have about reading piano music, and they will realize their capability for learning to read music. The student will feel successful , as they learn this method of learning to read music. The students will be able to read simple songs, in 4/4 time. The students will prepare for the next level of this course, and become ready to move forward. The students will learn to recognize the notes C, D, E, F and G in treble clef. They will practice proper hand position and seating position.
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 have been a teacher on outschool since May 2020. 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 post practice materials, in the outschool classroom , between each class meeting. I recommend a minimum of 15 minutes of practice 3 times per week.
Piano or electric keyboard. Removable Labels for piano keys.
Informal assessment and communication with the student, as they go along.
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Your piano keys need to be labelled. You can buy the labelling stickers on Amazon , or you can create your own labels, with masking tape and an ink pen. I will post a diagram , and instructions, in the outschool classroom. You will be able to access them once you enroll in this class.
