This class is designed to give students the chance to step away from their lesson books and develop their ear for music. They will also have the chance to explore the freedom and fun of improvisation. Each week, we will spend the first half of class working on ear training. This will include practice identifying intervals, short lines of Melody, and major versus minor chords by ear. The second half of class will be spent working on improvisational skills.

Students will grow in their ability to play by ear and improvise. Students will also grow in their knowledge of basic music theory concepts and in their confidence as a musician.
I have a Bachelor of Arts in piano performance and have been teaching piano for 15 years, and I have been playing piano for 32 years. A large part of my training and teaching experience has been in ear training and playing by ear. I have also taken graduate courses in jazz/blues and improvisation technique. I thoroughly enjoy the freedom of being able to play by ear and improvise, And I can’t wait to pass that on to your students. I enjoy helping students reach their full potential. Also, for some students, learning to read music can be very frustrating and limiting. Inside, they love music and playing around on their instruments, but their musical ability outweighs their ability to read the music. It is my hope that this class will help those students explore music theory concepts and various playing Techniques without having to worry about reading the music.
Students will need their instruments present with them for class. Students may want to have paper and pencil with them for taking notes, but this is optional.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
