Class Experience

Students will learn finger numbers, play simple melodies using piano finger numbers, learn how to count basic rhythms (quarter notes, half notes and whole notes) and identify loud and soft sounds. 
I have been teaching piano for over 12 years. I have a Master's Degree in Music Education and a Bachelor's Degree of Art in Music. I am a touring musician and am currently recording my second solo album. 
Please note: As of 3/31/20, there are digital versions of the Piano Adventures Primer Lesson Book now available on Apple iBooks and Amazon Kindle. Please buy the digital version if possible or the physical version of the book from an online music retailer. I do not recommend purchasing physical copies of the book through Amazon at this time as they may take over a month to ship. 

Students should purchase: Piano Adventures lesson book Primer Level 2nd Edition (ISBN: 978-1-61677-075-4)  Price: US $7.99
Students should have access to a piano or keyboard for the course. 
It is helpful for students to have a phone/tablet holder or stand so I can see their hands while playing the piano. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I will offer feedback after students perform an exercise and, if needed, provide suggestions to help the student master the concept. 
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
