Lesson details

All of my lessons have a basic structure to them. My piano lessons start off with going over theory homework, where I spend time explaining theory and how it correlates to the piano. This helps with learning notes, rhythm, and basics in the beginning. Next, I go over technique with students. I have a technique book I use for my students that is helpful for developing proper technique on the piano. Then we work through a lesson book; I have a set curriculum that I like to use, but I sometimes change it depending on my students’ needs. My voice students are trained classically in the Bel canto method, which focuses on free and healthy singing. I teach theory to my voice students, as well as rhythm and sight singing. Then I spend time on vocal warm-ups where I work on breath control and vowel placement (this is part of the Bel canto method). Then we work on a few songs. My students learn to sing in Italian, Latin, German, French, and Spanish.
