Instruments:

I love to teach piano. After my students learn basic piano skills, I let them select repertoire they are interested in playing, from genres such as;Pop, Rock, Jazz etc. I introduce composition work, basic music theory, and music history. I can successfully teach NYSSMA Repertoire as well.

Robert G

Instruments:

For beginning students I introduce the fundamentals and technique that is required to play the instrument, and how to read and write music. Once the student begins to understand the basic elements and the theory behind them, I will then introduce solo repertoire appropriate for a beginning student’s recital. Much of the music played in lessons will come directly from the student’s interest and practice schedule. I will also be performing regularly in lessons with students to develop their willingness and ability to collaborate with others, a skill that is often lacking in one-on-one teaching environments.

...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,...

Ways to Improve Piano Sight Reading

...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 ...

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!

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.
