Private one on one instruction. Hold recitals every year and mini get togethers(by area) every 6 months or when appropriate.
I work hard on every student. I make sure they understand their lesson before we move on to the next. I give tests periodically to help them familiarize themselves with recognizing notes and their values along with implementing dynamics. I encourage piano duets or accompanying:playing along other instruments to help them keep up with time(tempo). That prepares them to join a band, orchestra or accompany any other instrumentalist or soloists. Observing proper dynamics also helps them perform with more expression.
Have been teaching since 1986 when I started to major in music. I travel to my students depending on how many students are in the area. Usually, a minimum of 3. Still teaching to today and have recently opened a studio in Riverside, CA. With the current pandemic issues, I do wear a mask and face shield while teaching to ensure that I do not pass on nor contract any viruses. It would also be great for my students to wear one to protect themselves.
The satisfaction that someone has learned something in life through my services, most especially in music! It is a universal gift which speaks any language!
Joni is an incredible teacher and is very open and exploring ideas. That kind of piano teacher is difficult to find!
She is perfect for me. We have many things in common.
