Using the Music Learning Theory research of Edwin Gordon and the adaptation of those ideas to the piano by Marilyn Lowe, this method introduces students to the fundamentals of musicianship and music study that will be applicable in whatever direction the learner chooses to take their future musical studies. This is a primarily audiation-based method, with musical reading and writing flowing naturally out of a strong foundation of listening and internalizing music. Each week we will move,...
Strong internal sense of rhythm Music audiation (hearing music in one's head) Healthy, adaptable, and age-appropriate piano technique Comfort playing the whole keyboard, not note-position specific
Students will have weekly accompaniment or demonstration videos to play and practice along with, as well as occasional short assignments to record and upload to the class. Updates and practice suggestions provided throughout the week.

Proper piano technique and positioning is important, so an adjustable bench is necessary after initial studies have been completed. Curriculum is from the Music Moves for Piano course, book A, direct link provided in classroom page. (this book is not necessary for the first few classes-so order it when you can but don't worry if it arrives late)
Students will have recording assignments to complete and upload several times every month. They will be short, sometimes teacher accompanied, and a way for me to assess how much is absorbed from week to week without putting students on the spot in the live class.
25 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Parents/adults should plan on helping this age group during class and between classes for the best results.

Some children do fine alone in class, others do better with support. Please reach out to me with any questions you may have.
