Description

Class Experience

Please note:  I recommend having taken my "Next Level Up: Piano Boot Camp! Orange Level" course before this course, or at minimum, having some basic experience with piano. 

This "Next Level Up: Piano Boot Camp! Yellow Level' is the third level of a series of 5 levels (red, orange, yellow, green, blue). Each level explores new piano/music concepts and skills while also building on, reviewing and applying previously practiced skills and techniques. It provides a great, fast-paced platform for learners with minimal piano experience to build confidence. By the end of each class learners will have learned and practiced fundamental keyboard concepts and skills.

The main focus of the Yellow Level is the review of the most important concepts previously practiced in other levels and the coordination of playing both hands together comfortably. There is a major focus on key names and note recognition on the Grand Staff in this level building confidence with sight reading. While some material is naturally a review from previous "Next Level Up: Piano Boot Camp!" levels, in the Yellow Level practice pieces are continuously more complex and present more level appropriate challenges. 

Learners should be set up at a keyboard so that I can see their hands and the keys and hear them well. 

Week 1:
Review of C Position on the piano and on the bass and treble clefs. Review of the 4th (harmonic and melodic), playing with staccato in piano and forte dynamic levels with repeat signs. Learners will learn how to coordinate these skills and both hands while playing an 8 measure long practice piece. Practice piece may be in 3/4 or 4/4 time, include steps, skips, fourths and any of the beats we have learned previously including, quarter notes, half notes, dotted half notes, whole notes and respective rests.

Week 2:
Review of C position on the piano and on the bass and treble clefs. Review of the 5th (harmonic and melodic), the C major root position chord, playing with slurs and staccato with ties in piano, mezzo forte and forte dynamic levels with repeat signs. Learners will learn how to coordinate these skills and both hands while playing an 8 measure long practice piece. Practice piece may be in 3/4 or 4/4 time, include steps, skips, fourths and fifths and any of the beats we have learned previously including, quarter notes, half notes, dotted half notes, whole notes and respective rests.

Week 3:
Review of C position on the piano and on the bass and treble clefs. Continuing review of the C major root position chord and finger strengthening interval exercises (harmonic and melodic). Learners will learn how to coordinate these skills and both hands while playing an 8 measure long practice piece. Practice piece may be in 3/4 or 4/4 time, include steps, skips, fourths and fifths and any of the beats we have learned previously including, quarter notes, half notes, dotted half notes, whole notes and respective rests.

Week 4:
Learners will practice skills reviewed and learned in this course while playing an 8-16 measure, more complex practice piece.

Please note that this is a fun, fast-paced course! 
I have an MM and BM in music. I have taught learners of this age range music and ESL since 2002 online and in person. 
Learners are encouraged to practice all skills and concepts at home.

Learners should be set up at a piano, acoustic or electric, in such a way that I can hear them well and see their keyboard. The PDF worksheets I provide act as your piano book for the course. They can be printed and placed in a hard binder or clipboard and rested on the piano. I also provide the music on screen share incase learners do not have a printer. I will use fun, colorful PDF's to introduce each concept and skill. No additional piano repertoire book is needed. I will demonstrate each concept and technique.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Informal assessments are taken throughout the class to reinforce the concepts learned and skills acquired.  
25 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.

It would be greatly appreciated if a parent/guardian could be available off-camera for at least the 1st few minutes of class to assist with technology, if needed.

I aim to make learners feel as comfortable and welcome as possible freeing up time for parents/guardians.
