Our lessons are informed by extensive research on how we learn music. In each lesson, we move, sing, chant, play, and create. We play in ensembles, duets, and individually.
Our lessons are based on Dr E. Gordon's Music Learning Theory, applied to piano lessons by Marilyn Lowe in her series Music Moves for Piano.
We build a vocabulary of familiar patterns within the different rhythmic contexts (duple, triple or unusual metre), and harmonic contexts (major, minor, dorian mode, mixolydian mode etc.). This is important as the context gives real meaning to sound, and understanding it enables musicians to engage better in the music, especially in creative endeavours.
Each person is different, so I tailor my approach to suit the needs and goals of each individual!
