what should i do after Alfred's Basic Adult Piano Course: Lesson Book, Level 3
For years, I have developed some of my own teaching strategies to help young children pay attention during piano lessons. One of my favorite ways to break the monotony of just playing new songs, is playing a short "game". I have the child place their hands on the first hand position (both thumbs on middle C, and every other finger gets it's own note!). Then I tell them, "I... read more

WyzAnt tutor Davilmar B. shares a beautiful piano composition with great passion.
Balancing piano students' scope and sequence is essential to a well-rounded musician. Of course, the first step is hand position, note-reading, and identifying rhythms. With young students, much can be learned by rote (copy-cat exercises with the teacher). By 8 or 9, note-reading is primary for the student to sense advancement. Most piano methods out there will do this: Alfred, Bastien, John Thompson... read more
Every piano teacher uses different techniques and styles of teaching in their piano lessons. The way they teach is usually based upon their 'teaching philosophy' or their beliefs on teaching and learning and how they incorporate these beliefs into their lessons. Most experienced instructors will have a written teaching philosophy and students/parents should not hesitate to ask their teacher to... read more
An improv blues piano sample.
Often for music students the practice room can be a place of transcendent accomplishment as well as massive frustration. I have practice until my fingers bled, until I got exactly what I wanted, only to come back the next day and feel as if none of that work had showed up. I have also had breakthrough moments where everything seemed to fall into place, music and the world suddenly made sense as... read more
This is a great exercise for pianists to to build finger-independence when you're away from a piano. You can practice it virtually anywhere, and there are countless variations that let you get creative and keep it fresh. I learned about...
I played half of the piece to make sure the video fits. The quality isn't really good but what matters is that I have the resources to teach piano.

To those of you looking for a tutor that has a range of possibilities, I dedicate this blog to you. Being a recent graduate from the University of California, Santa Barbara, I know what it takes to use study skills to focus and remain organized in order to maintain a clean academic record. Graduating in only three years, I have had the opportunity to manage a schedule of work and school and... read more
I was not taught how to practice piano until college. The time spent alone practicing is just as important as the lesson itself, as it connects one lesson to the next. Practicing without much of a plan, I found myself less prepared than I thought I was when I walked onstage for my recitals. Including practicing strategies in the lesson gives students the confidence they need to work on their own... read more
