Because I have studied in the Royal Conservatory of Music, I am familiar with a basic piano lesson format that covers technique, ear training, repertoire, and theory. However, as an elementary music teacher and licensed Musikgarten instructor, I am happy to incorporate a more interactive and familiarity/listening-based piano teaching technique as well. Theory classes work well in a traditional practice-based lesson format, where I introduce a concept and you practice it. Recorder and ukulele I teach according to best practice elementary education techniques, but can easily adapt these.
