Functional Piano: This is a GREAT method of learning to play the piano without having to take years of formal piano lessons. If you just want to play your favorite melodies and harmonies then " functional piano." is for you. This is an EXCELLENT approach for eitherAdults/ Laymen/novie vocalist/songwrithers/instrumentalist who either want to explore and or create new harmonies and melodies. Topics include 1) Basic chord identification by sound. 2) Understanding chord symbols. 3) How to intrepret a lead sheet. 4) Basic diatonic concepts. 5) Modification of a chord progression. 6) Exchanging chords of similar functions. 7) Voice leading techniques. Nothing is more rewarding than seeing ome of my students develop a passion for Music beacuse it really is the gift that keeps on giving. The more time you put into it the more you are rewarded. I will always try to find out what inspires the Student so that I can successfully tailor my instruction and help devlop their own path of Musical development and Musical growth. For younger students a more traditional approach is recommended ( John Thompsom Piano books-Scales studies-Hanon etc.,) as well as bacis Musicanship skills 101 learning to read Music ( Lines & spaces both F Clef and G Clef) Key signatures-Form ( Repeat signs-codas) Clefs signs

I have attained over 10 years of longevity as a piano instructor. I began teaching private lessons part time and have continued ever since. I have taught a wide range of ages and skill levels, and have established good rapport with students and families over the years.

I've been teaching private lessons since I graduated from Berklee College of Music in May of 2006 and I've been teaching in After-School programs since 2010. I don't own my own teaching studio and my private lessons have always been in the student's home. I always encourge my students to set aside at least an hour and a half of practice time a day so they can continue to build their skills on their instrument as well as keep the lesson fresh in their minds. I also encourge students to look up other musicians that play their instrument in order for them to hear how their instrument should sound and to also help them develop a sound of their own.

For beginners I start with a mixture of Suzuki method and the Essential Elements book. I find that combining ear training while simultaneously developing the ability to read music only accelerates the learning process. Teaching adults of any level is all about assessing interests and goals. I find out where the interest in creativity lies and work on developing that so the lessons remain fun and fulfilling.

I think discovering exactly what a student knows in the first lesson is extremely important. This way, we can adjust the teaching plan or fill in gaps that have been missed in technique. It is incredibly important to me that my students listen to recordings every week. Not only is it fun, but it widens our view and helps us create goals.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
