Piano Lessons for Kids

Beginner Lessons for Kids

When you sign your kiddo up for lessons with me, you get access to my own unique teaching method.

 

In your average piano lesson students learn to:

  • play a variety of songs and

  • sometimes learn abstract musical rudiments and music theory.

In my unique method your kiddo will learn to:

  • play a variety of songs,

  • improvise their own songs,

  • compose their own music,

  • and learn to analyze and understand the songs they are playing, composing, and improvising.

Other Info

My goal as a teacher is to foster in your kiddo a life long relationship with music! Weather that is continuing with more advanced piano lessons, singing in a choir, a band, writing folk or pop songs.

 

My unique program with give a strong foundation for wherever your musical life brings you.

Partimenti

If your curious I also teach partimenti piano lessons. Partimenti is the way that most 17-19 century European musicians learnt to perform, improvise, compose and analyze music. Check out my partimenti page here for way more information.

Intermediate and Advanced Lessons for Kids

Do you want your kids to continue learning repertoire and also expand their musical skills?

 

In your average piano lesson students learn to:

  • play a variety of repertoire and,

  • sometimes learn abstract musical rudiments and music theory that is divorced from the repertoire.

 

In my unique method your kiddo will learn to:

  • play a variety repertoire,

  • analyze and understand the repertoire they are playing,

With what they learn from the repertoire they are playing they can learn how to:

  • improvise their own songs,

  • compose their own music.

Online Lessons

What you need

  • You need a piano or electric keyboard (need help? ask me),

  • you need a computer, tablet or phone with webcam and Zoom (Zoom has a ‘Music Lesson’ function that is great!),

  • A chair or table with some thick books so you can prop your webcam about 6-9 inches above the keyboard so I can see you and your hands on the keyboard.

How it works:

  • We will set up a time once a week for a lesson (days or evenings),

  • I will drop any materials you need at your home or ship to you,

  • I will call you at the lesson time is and,

  • I will share a Google Doc with you to track assignments and progress.

My Setup

A webcam for me. So I can talk to you.

A webcam for my hands so I can demonstrate for you.

I can share my screen so we can talk about the music you are playing.

Criminal Record Check

I have completed a Winnipeg Police Service Criminal Record Check, a Vulnerable Sector Screening, and a Child Abuse Registry screening. 

All checks and screenings are clear of any wrongdoing.

I can provide copies if requested.
