Beginning students start with a lesson book, theory book (written exercises for older students, coloring note naming exercises for younger students), and technique book that is appropriate for their age. As soon as a student is ready, I introduce them to books and sheet music written by other composers that make great recital pieces. I then add a classical piano literature book to the mix, and eventually drop the lesson book when the student has a good understanding of the fundamentals. If a student wants to work on any of their favorite tunes (e.g. movie, rock), we work on those in addition. I think students should work on anything that inspires them, while also developing their piano skills through standard repertoire.

I approach my teaching and lead discussions with both a concert pianist's passion and a scholarly rigor. The objective of my teaching in the classroom is to strengthen my students' pianistic skills and to nurture them as leaders in the field of musicology, music education, and professional performance.   My teaching style continually adapts to students' career paths and needs. For a student who is willing to become a leader in musicology and music theory, I prepare a pop quiz and a test on transposition and score reading for each group piano class. I explain and rephrase concepts until each student understands the concepts completely. For a potential professional concert pianist, I aim to inspire passion for the piano and challenge him or her to explore a variety of repertoires. I also want to strengthen their understanding of musical character and have them associate literary figures with music such as Liszt's piano transcription of Mozart's Don Giovanni and Zelina, who both sing "La ci darem la mano".   For teaching at the university level, I usually arrive to the classroom early because most of students are eager to practice before class. In the beginning of the class, I tend to invite students to share their teaching and learning experiences. For example, a music education student might share how she had to assess her student's repertoire level to scaffold her curriculum. Through listening to their errors, I hope to improve my teaching skills so my students can achieve the most favorable outcome. Toward the end of the class, I sum up the most important theme. Then, I usually stay longer because I am delighted to answer student's questions.

I am a very passionate music teacher, it's really who I am. I thrive off of opening the doors of music to people new to playing an instrument and teaching them a foundation upon which to grow. I graduated from UMASS Lowell with a Bachelors in Music Performance in 2014 and have 6 years of teaching experience in and around the Boston area. I play and manage a band called Skyfoot and have for about 3 years now. I have played in 35 different states, playing with all kinds of musicians across the United States. The times I spent playing and learning from the musicians at school and on the road have been some of the most insightful of my life.

The most rewarding thing for me as a teacher is too see my students have fun with their proccess. To watch them grow and as musicans as well as people. My goal is to help create a fun and effective approach to music and provide them with a solid musical foundation to blast off from!

I will be the first to admit I don't have a set method for teaching. However that is because I choose different methods based on the student. Every child, adult, teenager, etc learns at a different pace, has a different educational preference and I adjust myself to meet the needs of the student. Some will learn better by ear, others will learn through a traditional study of notes. I prefer my students to work hard but at their own pace and to teach them in a way that's beneficial to them and not myself.

...altogether. In art music, when composers work within the conventions of a genre, a piece’s relationship to the genre can be understood in terms of the structure, the use way the piece compares to other pieces in the same genre and so forth. For example, Faure’s Requiem can be understood as a funeral Mass for chorus and orchestra that fits within the same genre as Mozart’s Requiem.   In Popular Culture When popular music is being discussed, things get a bit fuzzier in terms of genre.
