I ve been teaching piano for more than 10 years. My students can not only read notes but also play by ear, compose, understand music theory. They take a part in recitals, music festivals, international music exams which gives them opportunity to get college credits later. My students also perform in different city events and public places. There is lots of stuff we are learning and doing in our piano classes! I enjoy seeing the results of a hard work both of us do (the student and the teacher).
I do recommend to take piano classes from ms. Nadia. She is a great and experienced teacher. My kids love attending piano classes now.
I love ms.Nadia as my son's piano teacher. She motivates him a lot with all diferent types of music materials. The classes are never boring. He definitely enjoys playing piano more!
The first what i do with a new student is i try to figure out the student's level by asking him some questions and giving him some tasks. I show the books we will use and i discribe the plan for the semester. Then we start actual classes. My every class always consists of several parts: a bit of music theory, technical exercises for fingers, sight reading task, actual pieces, duet in the end of the lesson. The class has to be not shorter than 45 minutes.
