Description

Class Experience

Many piano methods begin by teaching students to play only in certain hand positions, finding guide notes such as C or G. This method will expand your learner's use of the WHOLE keyboard in musical, exciting, and approachable ways. We will learn to 'audiate', or hear music in our heads, which will help students approach any future musical endeavors with confidence and creativity.

Additionally, great attention will be paid to how the students play. Healthy piano technique will be discussed weekly in relation to the song to be studied, and students will know not just the 'how' of piano technique but also the 'why'.
No homework is assigned and no practicing of this material is expected. Students who wish a more progressive and goal-oriented approach will do well to enroll in Piano Accelerated: Book 2.
A piano or keyboard with at least 60 keys and touch sensitive or weighted keys. A piano bench at the proper height for playing: a student's elbows should not dip below the level of the keys when seated.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
There will be light movement and light stretching every class.
Students should have a keyboard and video set up that allows them to easily see my demonstrations and allows me to easily see their body and hand position at the keyboard. Zoom audio settings should be adjusted to allow use of the "Use Original Sound" option.
