I want my students to enjoy playing the piano, and to develop confidence. The aim is to sit down at a piano without music and improvise a simple accompaniment.
I teach contemporary piano. This would suit beginners, or those who've had classical lessons and want to learn some blues/jazz etc. It is very helpful if students know the twelve major scales.
How I teach
Lessons last one hour and normally take place in the student's home. I rarely use written music, preferring to use chord charts. I customise the lesson to the person, based on their existing skills and particular requirements. I start with core skills to build confidence and gradually add complexity. For example:
* Basic triads and chord inversions
* Twelve-bar blues format
* Dominant 7th chords (C7, F7)
* 1-6-2-5 turnarounds
* Substituting 9th chords
* Altered Chords (#5, #9)
