My curriculum is in 5 phases:
1) WunderKeys for preschoolers age 3-5.
4) Note Pre-Reading
Transfer students are evaluated to determine in which phase they should begin.
I studied Music and Piano at Brevard Community College, Cocoa, FL, and Music and Business Management at the University of Central Florida. I have a BSBA from UCF. Prior to that, I studied with a concert pianist in Newport News, VA.
Half-hour lessons are $25. One-hour lessons are $45. Tuition is payable monthly by the first of the month.
I started teaching at 15. My mother volunteered my services to a friend of hers as well as my two little cousins. I had been playing 11 years at that time. Teaching piano had never crossed my mind, but I found I loved it.
I've worked with students ranging in age from 3 to 85. Most were beginning students, but I've had many transfer students who wished to continue their piano studies.
There are so many! The most recent happened last week. I have a new transfer student who took lessons for a year using the Suzuki method. Her little brother just started with me as a beginner. Her mother told me at the last lesson that she and her husband are thrilled. They've heard more music in their home in the last three weeks than they heard the entire year with the previous teacher. The little girl spoke up and said, "You're the best piano teacher ever!" That made my day!!
No two teachers are the same, just as each student is unique. My advice is to find a teacher whose curriculum is in sync with your goals. So many teachers have a one-size-fits-all approach to prepare all their students for Carnegie Hall. My goal is to teach students to play for pleasure for a lifetime.
My philosophy is that all students are learning to play for fun. If, along the way, they decide to get serious about it, we'll re-evaluate the curriculum. Sometimes that means finding a different teacher.
