- An older woman with hair in a tight bun, glasses on the tip of her nose and a ruler in hand ready to bust your knuckles?
- Someone who will suck the musical passion out of your existence by forcing you to do scales all lesson long?
You’re not alone if you share these thoughts, but you’re absolutely wrong.
These are not your traditional piano lessons!
If I’m primarily a vocal coach, why do I teach piano/keyboard lessons?
Well, first of all, I’m qualified. I studied music composition in college and my primary instrument was piano. But that’s not why.
It’s because I kept hearing the same thing from would-be adult learners. It would go something like this: “I took piano lessons for four years as a kid. Now I’d like to know how to play for pleasure.” Say, what?
Traditional piano lessons treat every student as though they are going to become concert pianists. And the overwhelming majority of you won’t and wouldn’t want to.
That’s why I don’t teach traditional piano lessons. Instead, you’ll learn to understand keys, chords, and chord progressions. You’ll choose what songs to play and, if you want, you’ll learn to read from a leadsheet.
Your piano can become a fun creative outlet the way a guitar does for so many. If that’s what you’re looking for, look no further!
