Homework Offered
We will be learning new lines of music each week. Students who continue to practice the songs after our class will have a repertoire of many songs by the end of the 23 lesson series no matter which week they start participating in the ongoing class. Recommended practice time is 15-20 minutes per practice, 3-5 times between classes. To graduate from Piano Music Class Level H into PMC Level I, learners will need to be able to complete the weekly song with both hands to use for warm-ups the following week for at least 5 weeks in a row, or have at least 10 songs (approximately 10 weeks worth of material) comfortably completed with both hands and following the music by practicing their favorite songs for multiple weeks and sending a video to Mrs. Pauli with the finished songs.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
An email will be sent to each learner with the recommendation of moving on to the next class for more challenging material when mastery of this current level is observed by Mrs. Pauli.
Grades Offered
Proficiency of at least 5 complete songs comfortably, musically, and with both hands from Piano Music Class Level G or assessment of 18+ months experience.
Read music without letter hints
Know all keyboard keys preferably without stickers 
🎹 Access to a piano or keyboard during lesson where the learners elbows are the same height as the keys. 🔥 Keyboards on tables are often too high (chest or shoulder height) which can harm wrists and hinder movement 🔥. Stand at the keyboard, find a tall chair, use a cushion, or use a keyboard stand to make the keys at the proper level.

💻Students need to be able to see the classroom screen where the music will be shown in a slideshow while they are sitting at their piano.

👂It is very important to make sure I can hear your piano and that it is not blocked by the background noise suppression through Zoom. 

👉**Please turn on "Original Sound for Musicians" in the Zoom audio settings before class. ** 

If you need instructions on how to enable this setting, please watch this youtube tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bEZMRtrSsYY

Students using a desktop or laptop can adjust this setting during the meeting. However, students using a phone or tablet must enable Original Sound before entering the class or I may not be able to hear your piano. 

🎼 Learners will get access to a class slideshow in their email with the songs and homework worksheets weekly for practicing. A 3-ring binder and plastic page protectors may help you keep the printed music sheets organized. 

📝 Learners may like having paper and pencil.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Google Slideshow links for each lesson are provided after class to the learner's Outschool system email. Music slides may be printed for practicing off screens. 

Any youtube videos posted on the Classroom page will be opened in a small window on Outschool. Learners will NOT be asked to go to Youtube on their own.
