Level 4 of Learn Piano Now expands the technical foundation that began in Levels 1, 2 & 3. It is possible, however, for a student to skip to Level 4 if they understand basic rhythms (quarter, half, dotted half, and whole notes), know the musical alphabet, can identify the musical alphabet on the white keys, can identify musical intervals (2nds, 3rds, 4ths, and 5ths), play legato and staccato, and play simple songs on the bass and treble clef using all five fingers. The classes listed below...
Students will be able to: 1. Identify intervals by sight 2. Identify standard rhythmic notation 3. Copy rhythmic patterns with counting and clapping 4. Sight read simple rhythmic and melodic examples 5. Discuss some of the historical context of the piano 6. Transpose pieces to different keys at the piano 7. Perform pieces for fellow students as well as friends and family 8. Compose their own pieces by manipulating previously learned patterns 9. Develop appropriate playing posture and hand position
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 to two hours of practice is recommended each week. It is best to divide this into 6 fifteen-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 4. Visual aids for each class will be available 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.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
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.
