Practice

This is so very key! Over long time frames and 10 years of teaching, I’ve seen huge difference in students who play everyday to 1-2 times a week. The development is twice as fast and the enjoyment with that! I’ll encourage daily practice and enjoyment motivation.

Set a Daily Practice Bell

Idea for consistent playing at home is to set a daily practice reminder for the student on your phone. Even 5mins goes a long way in the long run! ✨

Mindfulness through Music

Main thing is, is that playing at home is a fun mindful space for the student! Playing piano everyday is vital to get the most out of the lessons. Minimum practice 5mins a day, ideally 15mins a day. Reduce screen time by a few mins and pop on a little timer if this helps to focus and connect with the piano everyday. Make it a feature of the everyday routine. Most of all the goal of practice is to build a foundation of fun and enjoyment of music! 

 

The Goal

Here we have no exams, it’s all about enjoyment and developing the musician. The goal is to enjoy the piano and become an efficient, flowing, skilful piano player. We develop skills such as playing piano solo and chords, along with playing drums on 6 different drum stations. If the student wishes too, chords can be played with singing. This is a lovely idea as it encourages sing alongs with family and friends in future. The overall goal is a mindful approach to music, where the student enjoys their own relaxation time playing music. This can evolve to playing music with others or having fun performances if the student would like to share a song too!

 

Song Requests

Let me know if there are any songs the student would like to learn… have a song brainstorm before the term starts and for lesson 1 so we can fly along! We will continue with songs already completed too as this will build the memory flow, along with enjoyment in playing and performing.

If ye can’t make a class and you notify more than 24hrs in advance & I’ll try find alternative time options but this depends on the class schedule availability.
