Have you had years of piano lessons yet are still unable to just play the piano without sheet music or memorization? Do you sometimes wish you could accompany friends singing, or play along with guitarists, or maybe someday play keyboard in a band?
Do you wonder what it’s like to be able to feel chording and rhythm naturally?
My piano and keyboarding lessons focus on helping you meet your musical goals.
Students of any experience level or age are welcome. You'll learn the building blocks of chording, harmony, and rhythm, and most importantly, listening and following your instincts. You'll gradually build your own style and become confident accompanying other players/singers, playing in a band, and improvising. We'll work on folk songs, traditional tunes, hymns, soft rock, pop songs, and your favourite music. Celtic musicians can learn traditional Cape Breton-style piano accompaniment.
Beginners will also learn to real music and use correct technique so that they can pursue any musical goals.
Lessons are 30 to 45 minutes, on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, daytime or evening.
