Learn music theory with a B.S. in Music pianist
music theory is covered in the most subtle ways and more in depth when needed. How to build a chord, invert it and play, understanding major and minor keys
About Charis B.

I have a B.S. in Music Education. I have worked with several disabled students patiently guiding them, finding creative ways to make music accessible to them. I believe it is not about me or the parent, but the student. I work with children of all ages believing that we can find a way that works so that in a few months you see results. Anyone can learn to sing or play but not everyone is going to enjoy it without the right approach and teacher. I don't want to hear a student say that the teacher didn't listen to me, they wouldn't entertain my ideas. In my studio I have a studio piano and a keyboard. We have monitors and microphones and the ability to record. I encourage the composer to the pop music player, from the classical artist to the Broadway singer. Currently, I have several students that compose their own music, helping one of those students to become a copyrighted artist. *** Lesson Details *** For the child I have had the most success with the Bastien method and for the Adult pianist I usually use Alfred's method books. I constantly have access to musicnotes.com to download any current or older hit in addition to the method books. I want you to learn to note read and then to play by chords. I never want the student to lose their creative, artistic ability. They should feel welcome at all times to add input to the lesson. I want you to have fun learning and find the ability in you to make music. Please contact Takelessons if a time does not suit your availability. I may be able to work something out. *** Studio Equipment *** I own my music studio w/ piano, seating for parents. I have vocal equipment, microphones and monitors *** Travel Equipment *** I will have a music bingo game with me and whatever else is needed to supplement the lesson *** Specialties *** I teach any style and method that is needed,but prefer Bastien, feeling it doesn't drag the information out. I teach note reading and playing classical music to playing by chords and learning how to split the voicing
