During the lesson I ask you to play through your music. I will then ask you to play the music in many various ways that will hone the skills in all the areas you are trying to develop. With such first hand experience you will learn a great deal more than just how to play the notes correctly. You will have consequently incorporated artistry, piano technique, theory and ear training.

I am Russian classical educated musician. My personal world have been enriched since I started to study clasical music and learn to play piano at nine year old. Bringing the names of great composers, Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Tchaykovsky, Rachmaninoff, ect. to the children at the Elementary and Middle schools was the beginning of my professional journey. Touching the white and black keys of the piano with my children was the another part of the story.

Instruments:

For all students I'll be going over various ways to memorize any piece. I'll go over intervals, imperfect pitches, scale structure, chord progression, and how to apply all of it. I will start off with identifying notes in a scale, what they mean and how to use them. From there I'll go over rhythm and understanding time signatures. I will teach the importance of identifying and analyzing various compositions that the student finds interest in. After the student is able to apply all of these practices, there will be a final exam that involves performing a chosen song, identifying the different components of the song, and performing an instrumental improv of that song.

The Importance of Creativity in Piano Lessons

...your musical vision without it getting lost by technical problems along the way. I believe the style of music we enjoy the most is the best for us to develop our improvisational ability, because when we enjoy the music, we can effectively evaluate our ideas based on how they convey that aesthetic experience we enjoy in it. Conversely, practicing in a style we do not enjoy is like trying to paint without being able to see – we have no artistic vision to follow. So, in summary, have fun! The point of adding creativity to piano lessons is to let it happen, focus on the ... Read More
