Private Piano Lessons
My hope is to inspire each of my students to fall in love with music and engage with the piano. Music is another language that I will strive to help each student understand in their own individual way. Music is fun and I want to create an environment that highlights the passion and creativity of music while maintaining a safe space. My goal is for each student to go beyond the notes on the page and to feel ownership of their art and discover it from within.
Here’s some of what you can expect to learn:
Piano technique, scales, etudes, exercises
Body awareness, tension-free playing, body position
Develop Musicality, Rhythm, Phrasing, Dynamics
Developing the ear to listen to the balance between hands, voicing, and pedal phrasing
Explore a broad range of repertoire, genres, and styles of playing
Lead sheet reading and improvisation
Stage presence and dealing with stage fright and performance anxiety
