Learn to play the piano or violin. My passion is teaching people how to learn to sight-read easily on the piano and violin. When you can “read by sight” you can more easily pick out a piece you listen to and play it on the piano or violin.
YouTube and Teaching
I use YouTube in my teaching. If a student wants to learn a new piece in a certain style, in this case jazz, I post YouTube videos so they can listen and pick the piece they like. Here are a few I sightread yesterday. .https://youtu.be/Ljl81eRtblw https://youtu.be/w-KBtIhbjf4 https://youtu.be/p4VqM_ekJe0
Learning Piano or Violin virtually
During these challenging times, learning piano and violin can be an enjoyable and a rewarding experience. All you will need is a phone, tablet or laptop and we are ready to begin lessons.
Learning to play the piano or violin can be fun, by using apps and tools to learn the notes on the staff and intervals. Then using these tools to practice those notes and intervals to make learning to read music easier. Also doing scales helps with learning the major and minor keys that you find in pieces, translates to how to finger a new passage you are learning.
