Teaching Objects

What Does Lessons Cover?
I cover the following subjects in each lesson.

  1. Note reading. It is very important to recognize notes. Notes are to music as the alphabet is to reading.
  2. Rhythm. Without rhythm, music is just lifeless. Using different rhythms with the same notes will change a piece of music’s style.
  3. Techniques. Proper fingering, hand shape, posture, scales, arpeggios, etc.
  4. Theory. It is the foundation of music.
  5. Sight reading. This technique is vital. A well trained musician will learn a new piece more efficiently.
  6. Ear Training. One of the main objectives of ear training is the development of relative pitch, which allows a pianist to identify correct chords or notes.
  7. Ensembles. This helps students learn to be team players.
