Must Love Music Programming

During your lesson, I will teach you in a manner that works best for YOU.  And, because my focus is only on you, we can learn at your pace.  Quick for concept or skills that you find easy; slow down for the ones that are more difficult.

At Must Love Music, we use technology to enhance our learning.  Lab time programming ensures students get regular, effective practice with the theory of music so they can make the music they strive for at the piano.  We also have group lessons throughout the year so students can learn and explore together.

Personalized Private Lessons:

This may be the more familiar option of one student at a time with the teacher.

Lesson lengths are typically 45 minutes in length.  Often this works out to approximately 30 minutes at the piano & 15 minutes of lab time.  However, we will switch between activities as needed to best help the student learn.

These personalized private lessons are available ONLINE.

My hope for both kids was/is to find something they enjoy doing.  In this case, to discover a love for playing music. You did amazing.  My kids have grown a lot under your patience and care and direction.

For young students, we will alternate between activities at the piano & away from the piano.  The younger the child, the more their learning will be exploratory & play-based.  This ensures we explore concepts in multiple kinaesthetic ways while ensuring all that energy has a place to be used during lesson!

Using apps can be a great way to practice concepts.

Group lesson bring a social aspect to piano lessons.

Group Lessons

Group classes will be scheduled online during the course of the year.  These will be held in lieu of regularly scheduled lessons for that week.  Group lessons provide opportunities for students to perform & attend master classes which are an important part of their musical development.  They are included in the cost of tuition.

Student-Led Conference

Once a year, students take over the lesson and teach their parent(s) two concepts they have worked on in the previous months.  This ensures students take ownership of their learning while giving the parent(s) an opportunity to see and hear what their child has learnt.  Students plan the conference with guidance, but are responsible for defining, explaining step-by-step, and provided guided practice to their “student”.  As a parent, you can see how your child is progressing over the course of the year.
