1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Frequency: included
Feedback: included
Details: Learners will want to practice and perform the songs they learn in class. One hour of practice is recommended each week. It is best to divide this into 6 ten-minute sessions. Visual aids will be available on the class page to be printed.
Frequency: included
Details: Each student will be assessed with a rubric following Week 8. This feedback will indicate areas of strength and weakness and recommend the appropriate next class.
Learners must have access to a piano or keyboard. A keyboard does not need to be full size (88-keys). Ideally it should have weighted keys and be velocity sensitive (the volume should change depending on how quickly you press the keys), though this is not required for Level 1.
Visual aids for each class will be available the day before class begins. I recommend printing these and keeping them in a binder so that the learner can reference them both during class and throughout the week. No other materials are needed.
