A 30-minute lesson once a week by Zoom or Skype. One hour and 45-minute lessons are also available. I customize the course to fit the students interest and level. The method book I use with most students is Faber. The method book provides a good background and takes the student through the process of learning the piano in a clear and organized way. It's important for a student to play piano music that they like to help keep their interest. I work with the each student to find piano pieces that are both fun and interesting. Classical, popular and jazz styles of the piano will be covered. Depending on what directing a students wants to go in, an emphasis will be placed on either classical, jazz, blues or popular music. This class is open to all levels and age 5 through adult.
