Piano lessons for kids use the Faber Piano Adventures curriculum and are supplemented with games, activities, and songs your kids love. The adult curriculum is more flexible based on the students prior experience and interests. All students, regardless of age, recieve a quality music education with the ultimate goals of integrating healthy piano technique and becoming well rounded musicians.
Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent - Victor Hugo
What to Expect
The intro lesson is a low pressure opportunity to get to know each other. We discuss your prior musical experience (if any) and what you’re interested in learning.
- We’ll sit down and chat about your musical experience, goals, and interests
- If you’ve played an instrument in the past, I may ask some questions to see where you are. This is not a test! There is nothing wrong with saying “I don’t know”. It just helps me to gauge your level so I can develop a plan that will work for you.
- Regardless of your prior experience, it’s important to dive in and play! We may do some Call & Answer (I play a note or a short phrase then you repeat it back to me), improvise, or learn a short piece. If you have something prepared and would like to share it with me, let me know!
- Lastly we’ll discuss the business side of things: studio policies, how payments work, cancellations, etc. Although there is no obligation after the free intro lesson, this is often when students choose to schedule a regular lesson time.
