I focus on maximizing the fun factor from the very start, getting kids creating music from the word go!
I keep my piano lessons fresh, exciting and interesting, because after all when we’re having fun we learn faster no matter what age we are.
Each piano lesson will focus on the fundamentals of note reading, music theory, and ear training. Fun musical games, worksheets, and iPad music apps are incorporated to reinforce theory concepts and enhance learning.
Learning to play the piano should be an exploration of all music: my lessons are not just about classical music and I like to include some less commonly taught aspects such as improvisation, arrangement, composition, pop style chord progressions, simple jazz & blues, that nurture the creative side of the developing musician.
All students are welcome to sit ABRSM piano exams. Exams can be a great motivator for some, but they’re not for everyone. Exams should always be a positive and rewarding experience, not something to be anxious about.
Each student is different and unique, and I strive to individualize every student's course of study.
