Level 1 of Learn Piano Now provides a technical foundation for continued musical growth while helping learners make music right away. No previous piano instruction is necessary. The classes listed below are sequenced to maximize musical development and enjoyment. Each class includes a familiar tune or folk song that reinforces the topic. Students will be engaged with rhythm games, slides, ear training, music history, and even composition. By the end of level 1, learners will play songs on...
Students will be able to: 1. Identify patterns of black and white keys at the piano 2. Identify the musical alphabet on the piano keys 3. Identify standard rhythmic notation 4. Recall finger numbers on both hands 5. Copy rhythmic patterns with counting and clapping 6. Discuss some of the historical context of the piano 7. Transpose pieces to different keys at the piano 8. Perform pieces for fellow students as well as friends and family 9. Compose their own pieces by manipulating previously learned patterns
Dr. Nathan earned a BM in Music Education, a MM in Piano Performance, and a DMA in Piano Pedagogy. He has been teaching since 2014.
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.
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.
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.
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
