I have bachelors and masters degree in Piano Pedagogy. Been teaching in Centreville area for over 20 years. My goals is for students to be able to read music and understand basic music theory, so they can play any music they like to play on their own in the future. I hold Spring and Sonatina/Sonata festival sponsored by local chapter of MTNA; studio recital once a year. Also Royal Conservatory Music exam, if parents and students prefer to attend.
Kina has been wonderful with my daughter. My daughter really wanted to take piano and we met three teachers. She was most comfortable with Kina. My daughter loves coming to piano lessons. She has learned so much!
With a young beginner, I use blocks and start with primary level books. If transfered students, I continue from their previous learning books. I may add and fun songs such as pop, jazz and/or folk songs to keep their interest up.
