Do I need a piano?
Yes! For all classes (except for the games class) you will need a full sized 88 key piano. If you would like some budget friendly options, please message me and request the keyboard guide.
How do online lessons work?
Online lessons are similar to and just as effective as in person lessons. The only difference is that you will need a laptop or computer and a strong internet connection. The teacher has 2 camera views allowing students to see the side view for posture and technique, and also an overhead camera allowing students to see the the piano keys. Lessons are structured to be engaging and interactive; we do not just sit for the 45 minutes! There will be opportunities to stretch our legs for rhythm exercises, analyse music by annotating on screen share, and of course playing theory games (have a dice ready!)
How many students in a class?
All classes are 4 students maximum, with the exception of the Piano Games class which is a maximum of 6 students.
What if my child finds the course too easy?
Students that need more of a challenge are encouraged to work on supplemental pieces and do the challenge activities provided. If your child finds even all of this too easy, please speak with me about Private Lessons.
What if my child finds the course too hard?
Students can choose to focus on just one or two aspects of homework each week. We don't aim for perfection, the aim is for each student to do their best and learn at their pace. Add-on options of 20 minutes per week are also available for students who need help practicing between lessons.
Do I have to sign up for the whole term?
All classes, except for the Piano Games class, is one term commitment. For Piano Games classes you can sign up for the whole term (11 weeks) or purchase week to week as a drop in class.
Do you do Private Lessons?
Yes. Please see Studio Policy in the Files section for details and contact me directly to arrange.
