ART + PIANO LESSON INFO
Piano lessons run 30 minutes. Art lessons run 60 minutes. If you are enrolling multiple art students, I provide enough desk space and supplies to accommodate up to two students at a time. (Group class options coming soon!)
I offer classes both before and after school for your convenience, from 5am-7pm Mondays through Wednesdays. Thursdays and Fridays are reserved for rescheduled lessons. Once you have read over this information, please email me for current available spots.
Piano Lesson Techniques
I have taught many students of varying ages and levels. Your children may have taken years of previous lessons, or this may be their first time. Whatever their background may be, I will make sure they are given the appropriate references for their age and experience.
I teach theory (chords, scales, etc.), sight-reading skills, technique, and also focus on fun, popular music choices that they express interest in. I will provide you with a personalized folder and charts that will keep track of their weekly assignments and progress.
Art Lesson Techniques
I teach the following methods and skills: 1) Comprehension of basic drawing skills and abilities, such as perspective, 2) Knowledge of the way colors react together, 3) Understanding of the way that light and dark areas create a pattern, especially in drawings and paintings (Chiaroscuro), 4) Accuracy of drawing when focusing on lines and shapes while sketching, and 5) Lots of fun, art-based activities! During their first lesson, I talk with my students and take notes on their interests, ideas, and requests into account. I make sure to include these in their personalized lesson plans.
Recitals, Awards, Art Parties and Recognition:
I am excited to announce that starting in 2017, I will be offering art parties and recitals for students and their friends! I believe that it is of high importance that children and youth build self-esteem through their talents and abilities. Students will build their self-confidence by participating in optional student piano recitals and art parties every few months. There are rewards and activities for every student, to help them be excited to participate.

I am available for travel in order to better accommodate your schedule. My travel fee is a $2 base fee for the first mile and 60 cents for each additional mile. This covers gas, travel time (additional lesson slots must be sacrificed for travel lessons) and packing/unpacking of supplies.
