Description

Class Experience

Students in this class will be regularly engaged in solo and ensemble playing, beginning music theory concepts such as tonic, dominant, major, minor, and scales, and will have continual exposure to improvisation, solfege, and creativity at the keyboard. 
Daily and weekly homework will consist of short practice assignments supported by videos that I will upload in the classroom. Students may need help from adults accessing and remembering to use those videos depending on their age/comfort with the technology. Usually only one song will be assigned per week, although sometimes there will be additional technical exercises or music theory concepts to practice. In general, learners should expect to spend 10-20 minutes a day practicing, and set aside 4-6 days of practicing a week. Learners who have trouble keeping up are encouraged to reach out to me for private sessions and help, as I will gladly offer transfers or other support in helping learners be successful.
Students need Music Moves for Piano, Book 2 (green cover, available at MusicMovesforPiano.com, $20)
A piano or keyboard of an appropriate size (if purchasing a keyboard for this class, look for something with at least 60 touch sensitive or weighted keys)
A piano bench or seat that is the appropriate height at the keyboard. Your learner's elbows should be level with or slightly higher than the keyboard.
Assessment is informal, positive, and encouraging throughout the semester.
25 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Students may need help accessing practice videos in the classroom, as well as reminders to practice regularly! Each week, we will start with light stretching and rhythmic movements such as clapping, jumping, or stepping.
