Piano Teacher Lansdowne and River Creek, VA
Love's Music Lessons, LLC exclusively travels to Leesburg (Lansdowne and River Creek (20176). Students interested in intermediate and advanced classical piano lessons in Leesburg (Lansdowne and River Creek) 20176 are welcome to contact me.
Piano lessons focus on developing an artistic, creative and well-rounded musician. The most important areas that I focus on are technique (adopted from the Russian school of piano playing), rhythm, sound and phrasing. Each lesson is tailored to fit the individual needs of the student. I use a variety of method, technique and repertoire books. I primarily teach classical repertoire, although some of my students have interest in playing jazz, blues and church hymns. The following areas will be highlighted during piano lessons:
Sight-Reading- (I teach piano students how to read the notes. Classical piano music is not organized in positions, i.e., G-position, A- position, etc. Classical music typically follows a set harmonic and melodic structure. Reading notes and understanding the harmonic and melodic structure of a piece is key in learning classical piano music.
Classical Repertoire- (Students will learn and perform repertoire by Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, and a multitude of other composers.
Technique-(Scales, Chords, Cadences, Arpeggios and Broken Chords (I have adopted techniques from the Russian school of piano playing and other Russian masters)
Etudes-Technical studies which serve to strengthen the fingers, enhance technical facility on the piano and sharpen sight-reading skills)
Pedaling (Learning to coordinate pedaling to preserve the rhythmic and stylistic nuances of a phrase. This is especially important in classical sonatas.)
Sound (Learning to use the entire upper, lower body and arms to develop a deep sound)
Practicing with the metronome. This is key in learning new repertoire. Ms. Love will focus on innovative ways to use the metronome and master difficult technical passages.
Theory, Ear Training and Harmony
I am always seeking serious students who share my passion for music and are committed to practicing. Music takes hard work and patience, but should also be a fun and rewarding experience. Lessons are either 35, 40, 45, 60, 70, 75 or 90 minutes. Additionally, I am experienced in preparing advanced students for local and state competitions, and entrance auditions for music schools. For more information and rates view the tuition page.
Please note*****The trial lesson is a formal music lesson with one on one interaction between the piano teacher (myself) and the student. Parents are welcome to sit in on the trial lesson. Students will be required to sit at the piano for at least 30-minutes, identify specific keys on the piano and answer questions about music. Some writing and music theory may also be introduced.
