Style of Teaching: All Ages (Beginner / Intermediate / Adult)
Piano: Alfred Instructional method level books - based on age and experience. Alfred theory, scale and chord books are also encouraged.
*When reaching a certain level students can incorporate a second book for entertainment, such as: Pop, Disney, Movie Themes, Holiday, Jazz, Classical, Marches, Patriotic, Gospel, etc.
Practice Time: Every Teacher would like their students to practice daily. I encourage, at least, 1/2 hour to 1 hour practice sessions spread through out the week between lesson to lesson.
