Beginner students can expect to learn the piano basics that will enable them to build up their piano repertoire. I begin by doing finger muscle warm-ups before jumping ahead into the more difficult piano pieces. When I believe a student is well rehearsed in their understanding of finger numbering, the notes of the piano, and basic music reading I will begin to teach separate handed pieces and then ease into two-handed pieces to build muscle memory and strength.
For intermediate to advanced students, I will continue to assist in learning more advanced pieces to further develop their skill-set. The lesson will be divided up between going over pieces of their interest and working through them and practising GUILD exercises such as scales, appreggios, ear tests, chord progressions and brief music theory revision.
My students can expect to develop their skill-set over a short period of time, and I hope I can encourage them to enjoy piano as much as myself. Through practise and commitment pianists thrive.
