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 twenty-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, be velocity sensitive (the volume should change depending on how quickly you press the keys), and have a pedal. 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.
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.
