There are an exuberant amount of book sets one can use to teach piano. What we have learned teaching is none of them have all the ingredients needed to educationally feed a student. We believe all students deserve the best, so we use the best texts from various method sets and combine them. In today's global society, we also believe it is essential musicians are diversified. Studying from various method texts assures various musical perspectives and styles being taught. This is invaluable for a developing musician.
During a trial lesson book recommendations will be made. Age, previous musical experiences, and future goals all play a role in the recommendation. After, book titles and ISBN numbers will be emailed. You have the choice of purchasing the books yourself, or purchasing them through the studio. Books are available online or local music stores.
In addition to method books, students are encouraged to supplement with fun music of their choosing. It is just as important to feed the soul as it is to learn about new musical concepts!
