This is a course in basic technique covering keyboard skills, notation, and repertoire. For the students with or without previous keyboard experience or with limited piano background who wants to explore a variety of musical repertoire, basic musical terminology and keyboard navigation.
As a teacher I want to bring to students their own unique style of teaching and experience to the lesson to help ensure that my students get the best possible piano instruction whilst realizing their full music potential. My goal is to provide the highest quality education in a fun, energetic and welcoming environment.
