A PIANO TEACHER WHO PLAYS ALL TYPES OF MUSIC AND CAN TEACH YOU TO PLAY ALL STYLES AND BY EAR!! NO SCALES - (yeah!) PIANO STUDENTS OF MELISSA'S APPRECIATE THE FAST PACE OF THE LESSONS AND THE FACT THAT AFTER USING THE BOOKS FOR A WHILE - SHE HAS THEM PLAYING THEIR FAVORITE SONGS THAT THEY ARE SINGING IN THE LESSONS - BY EAR TOO! (Oh - AND NO SCALES!) Nice!! AND - Only 40 dollars for lessons! WOW! AND - you will be playing on my state of the art YAMAHA CLAVINOVA DIGITAL PIANO!
The following are the books i use in here - i buy they "used" on amazon under "Books".
Piano for the Young Beginner: Primer A (Bastien Piano Basics)
Theory And Technic For The Young Beginner Primer A (Bastien Piano Basics)
Piano for the Young Beginner: Primer B (Bastien Piano Basics)
Theory & Technic for the Young Beginner Primer B (Bastien Piano Basics)
(We then move to the Primer level once these books are completed.) and then to the other higher levels if the student wishes.
NOTE - I normally don't do piano lessons only. In this studio - i coach piano/voice combo lessons. But sometimes i do make exceptions! (especially if you want to play by ear or read chord charts - fun!!) So important to be able to do more than one thing - have more than one talent and to perfect all of your talents! You all will love it in here - you get to pick all of your own music to sing - and no one knows better than me all of todays hits as well as the classics AND how to play them in your key by ear!!
