Piano Lessons - How it Works

MY Story

How It Works

Private Piano Lessons

Private lessons are 30 minutes once a week. Books and music are additional. Lessons are based on a 48 week calendar year with major holidays off. Some months will have three lessons in them, and some will have five, but most have four lessons. Music books today are more interesting and fun than they used to be.

I use the Alfred Premier Piano Course and Faber Piano Adventures with children. They enjoy the catchy tunes and lyrics they can relate to as well as interesting and fun activities in the workbooks. Adults enjoy the Alfred Adult Piano Courses and the Faber Piano Adventures for the Older Beginner. These both introduce note reading and rhythm, along with the familiar music.

I also use additional methods and music to suit the age and needs of each student. After learning the basics students can begin to play the music THEY want to play such as the Classics, Jazz, Broadway melodies, and old standards.

Most music is available on several skill levels so that even a beginner can enjoy the music he or she wants to play. Whether you are a beginner or have played the piano before, please join me as we learn and laugh together.
