Develop your piano skills to be able to play advanced classical pieces, improvise in different genres, and improve your technique and theoretical knowledge to the point that you have full command of the keyboard in a very short period of time.
You play pieces that you enjoy, work hard on the technical exercises, and gain the reinforcement of playing beautifully.
My methods are not conservatory oriented as I find most students who follow this method move very slowly and usually end up hating the piano.
If you would like to do a piano exam, I don’t believe that you need to do one until you reach a grade eight level….( I can take you right up to the ARCT level) but if your goal is just to play beautifully you really don’t need to do an exam.
Yes my methods are not standard but I have people playing like virtuosos in just a few months. If you look at my video, the man playing the piano had only a few months of lessons at the time. 2 years later, he is playing at a grade ten level. Piano has become his passion.
I have been teaching for 48 years and have produced amazing results in my students.
