Do you accept adult students? (Am I too old to begin piano lessons?)
Yes, Karen teaches adults. And NO, you are not too old. Even if you have never studied music before, it is not too late to begin lessons. No one is too old to learn. Often, adult students pick up the ability to read music in a relatively short amount of time. Lessons can be tailored specifically to the needs of an adult student, including lesson pace, materials, performance opportunities, and lesson time slots.
What piano method book do you use in your lessons?
The important thing is that lessons are tailored to each individual student’s needs, no matter what method book is used. The method book used most frequently is the Robert Pace Series as it is comprehensive in what it provides (theory, technique, composition, creativity). In addition, other method series and repertoire are used to individualize instruction.
What is the format of a typical lesson?
How often would we meet for lessons?
Lessons are given weekly. Your lesson time will be for the same day and time each week, with the exception of planned studio holidays, group lessons and summer vacation. School age kids will have monthly group lessons to share the music they are learning, learn various musical concepts together with other kids of similar skill and age and enjoy the social time while learning more about music.
