Marjorie worked with her to find the music inside the method and knew just how to explain what she needed my daughter to do to hit, on her first lesson ever, the highest and lowest notes she had been able to ever play. Marjorie even taught her to pick out the notes of the Star Wars theme song from my daughter's memory of the song. For this part of the lesson there was no sheet music. She learned to compose from memories. Really cool and we will continue with Marjorie. This was an online lesson.
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.
