PIANO LESSONS  ages 6 and up, Private, Trio or Group

         

                                      

 At L.M.J. Music we offer a comfortable and natural learning environment.  Our teaching studio is climate controlled.  Students can experience the pleasures of playing on an acoustic piano, digital piano, or electronic keyboards.

Program

We teach Theory and Technique alongside of learning individual pieces, emphasizing the fundamentals of music.  Also, exploration and creativity are encouraged.  Students explore music on their own and make up their own.  We use a series of books from Alfred's Basic Piano Library that stresses intervallic reading of notes and individual note reading.   It covers a variety of styles from folk to classical and pop.   Students learn to play for fun, learn at own pace, and acquire fundamentals of music, and skills for further use, understanding, and enjoyment of music.  As students progress, we can prepare them for RCM practical performance and Theory exams.

Off-Bench-Activities

Experiencing and exploring music in the whole body provides a fun and fundamental ability needed in all musicians.  Students develop an internalized relationship between gross and fine motor skills. 

Our Piano Program provides opportunities for Students to build on skills from the age of 6 through University Music preparation and Adulthood.

Teacher Lisa M. Jones has been teaching since 1993!

  Piano students are required to have an instrument at home to practice on.

Purchasing a Keyboard?

If you are planning on purchasing a keyboard there are a few things to consider:

Own an Acoustic Piano?

How long has it been since it has been tuned?  An Acoustic piano must be tuned at least once a year!  

Why do we suggest starting piano lessons at the age of 6 or older?

In order to begin piano lessons the child must know something about reading, recognizing numbers 1 through 5, know Alphabet letters A through G, know something about taking direction, and must be able to sit still for about 10-15 minutes while focusing. Students can develop basic musicianship skills such as beat keeping, clapping rhythms, understanding musical elements such as pitch high and low, tempo fast and slow, form AB and gross motor skills in our Orff Music for Children classes.
