I would like welcome you to the current season of piano lessons and explain what it takes to make piano education a success.
What it takes is more then 30 minute lessons. My students participate in a lot of activities: recitals, festivals, state theory tests, competitions and state ensemble. To make all this happen requires my participation and membership in professional music organizations. I belong to the National Music Teacher Association, Texas Music Teacher Association, Frisco Music Teacher Association and Steinway Educator Partnership. All of these, besides paying my yearly dues, require a lot of volunteer work. I attend meetings, organize and participate in festivals, hold one of the office positions in the Frisco Music association (This year I am Vise president of the Music Teacher Association and a member of the board meetings). I have been a delegate representing FMTA to the Texas State Convention, which required from me be there for 3 days and attend a lot of meetings and educational programs and master classes in order to be informed of latest news and technology in music education .
What it also takes is the right space and tools. My studio is equipped with the latest technology: two computers with music software, which make lessons more interesting and help study theory, ear training and develop rhythm. This is especially good for siblings, One student will be working with me on the piano while another will on computer study theory,ear training.
