For my piano students who are children I like using Piano Adventures for beginners and advanced beginners,since it's offering multiple books for each subject and level(lessonxc2xa0book,performance book,etc.).For more grown up ones or adults students I like using Alfred's methods,for example x22Adult All-In-One Course.Alfred's methods offer a variety of books, focusing on different needs according to the class set up.For drums I use Alfred's as well in conjunction with more speficic books such as Stick Control and Syncopation.

Orff and Kodály are the requirements throughout my college study, which I integrated into my teaching and found it helpful for developing students' sense of music. I am familiar with the major piano teaching system, including Faber, Bastien, Alfred and Baker. I evaluated the student's instinct on the piano at the first lesson to decide which material is good for them. I will encourage them to find the music they want to play, more importantly, I will adjust the music to their level so they can enjoy it more.

Instruments:

Music is such a wonderful and powerful thing that has always belonged to me, my whole life. I grew up with strong classical music background. I started piano when I was 2 years old, learning from my mother who is also a musician. I was interested in singing from my pre-k year and started to enjoy performing on the stage to share my musical talent. For my undergraduate degree, I got accepted as a vocal performance major at The Boston Conservatoy but from my third year, I was more passionating and interested in composition, so I changed to major and graduated in 2013. Currently, I am earning my last year of Master's degree in composition at The Mannes College The New School for Music, teaching private voice & piano lessons, Organist/Pianist at church, and I will be graduating in May and starting my proffessional study from the fall season.

Usually I pick and choose out of different method books when applicable to the particular student.  Every student learns differently so my job is to make sure the proper curriculum is made and provided for growth.  As long as the student can eventually get to the point where he/she can look at a piece of music and play it without the help of the teacher, I've done my job for the most part.

...and mood of the opera–the audience should be prepared by the orchestra for what would follow later. His opera Alceste offers an early example of this mindset.   Mozart’s Don Giovanni picked up on this methodology, and composers have followed to a certain extent ever since. By the late 18th century, composers like Verdi and Wagner began using a through-composed prelude rather than a strict A-B-A form overture, but the thought process remained the same; the audience should be prepared by the introduction for what was coming next.   Parts of an Opera: History of the Aria   In 1602,...

...a soaring score when presented with a contrapuntal piece, making it seem “too easy” for that level.   Sight reading requires applying all factors of musicianship into regular exposure to new music. You may improve overall as a musician, but if you do not keep reading new music, your piano sight reading will not improve much. I prefer to have three tiers of difficulty within all my students’ repertory – something that takes a week or less to learn, something that takes about a month to learn, and something that is ambitious that the student is usually very passionate about, that takes longer than a ...

How to Read Standard Notation   The standard notation system is how music is traditionally written and archived. It consists of a five-line staff and the notes are represented by note heads (dots) and stems (flags). There are many rules that apply to this system and are beyond the scope of this article.

Encouraging a Love of Music Outside the Classroom

...It’s very important to foster a love of music both inside and outside of the classroom or lesson studio. Here are some great ways that parents can get involved with their child’s music education at home without having to have a musical bone in their body! You’ve heard the news, you’ve seen the statistics. Music education improves a number of critical skills: reading comprehension, mathematical skills, memory retention–just to name a few.

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.
