Class experience

Students' goals will depend on their age, level, and interests.  We will discuss specific goals before our first class and evaluate them as we go.  Most importantly, we want to have fun learning music.  
I have a BA in Vocal Performance from Texas Christian University and was certified to teach Music grades EC-12 in the State of Texas for many years.  I have taught private piano, singing, and theory lessons for over a decade to students from ages 4 all the way to adults post-retirement. 
Homework Offered
Students should practice every week. Young beginners should practice at least 15 minutes a day, 3 to 5 days a week. Intermediate to advanced students should practice 20-40 minutes a day 5 to 7 days a week. Again, it depends on the student's age, level, and goals. Have I taught students that don't practice at all? Yes, and I will continue to. Life is busy and I'm forgiving, but it is highly recommended that students DO practice in order to get the most out of their lessons.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
I will use informal assessments of progress as we go. Once a song or concept is mastered, we move on to the next. If the student is using Royal Conservatory of Music literature, we can prepare for real exams or mock exams to be done in class. Exams are not mandatory however!
Grades Offered
A piano or keyboard is needed for piano or piano/vocal combo lessons.   

Books will be needed for piano lessons in particular, and I can recommend those depending on the student's age and level.  I can provide material for the first few classes if time is needed to order books.  If the student already has books on hand, that's great!

Piano/Vocal combo and singing lessons may or may not need books, depending on the student.  We can discuss.  A music theory book is recommended.

Singers should have access to YouTube or have a way to play recorded music during their lessons so that we can listen to songs, piano accompaniments, and use backing tracks as needed.

A pencil never hurts in case we need to take some notes!
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Parents are asked to look over all class materials and keep track of what students are singing or playing, particularly if the student is learning popular music.  Song lyrics vary widely and so do parents' thresholds for what they are okay with their children singing and learning.  I filter songs the best I can for language and content, but parental input is extremely valuable and necessary.  If you have a concern about any of the material, bring it to my attention so that we can adjust or use different material!
