Your First Lesson


In your first private lesson, you can expect me to ask a lot of questions! My goal is to get to know you—your interests, hobbies and goals. What music do you like? What music do you want to play someday? I want to know your reasons for starting piano lessons, and what you hope to get out of them. First lessons also include an explanation of keyboard geography, proper body and hand positioning, an introduction to basic theory concepts, a preview of your books, and a simple improvisation session. Finally, we will discuss practice expectations and a plan toward growth. Hopefully you will leave feeling excited and ready to begin your piano journey!
