15 Melodies lessons
Karen is also sensitive to my musical tastes. For instance, she found a book of classical music appropriate to my level and offered it as a way to expand my early repertoire. It's a nice diversion from scales and other practice pieces and I'm really enjoying the challenge and the opportunity to play familiar melodies. Apart from the formal learning plan, Karen shares tips and techniques from her own experience, which has already helped me navigate more complex passages (complex for me at this point)!
She is a business professional and does an amazing job at delivering an encouraging learning experience, for my son. 1/8/2014: Tonight was my son's final lesson with Carole before his SSAT, which will be in two days. We feel so fortunate that we had Carole and my son is feeling a lot more confident in his ability to perform well in the exam. couldn't ask for a better tutor!! She genuinely cares about her students and is truly committed and encouraging!!
There was a good deal of interaction which I was comfortable with. I think we can all remember classes where the teacher stood and lectured for the whole period - Malone is not like that. We discussed the concepts of line, shapes, movement, etc. All in all this was the most enjoyable and educational art class I have ever taken. I look forward future classes. He has put a charge in me that had been lacking for years. I would recommend Malone to anyone who wants to be a better artist.
