My name is Jared Plane, and I have been playing the piano keyboard for over 15 years. I am offering piano lessons to beginning players wishing to make a start on the piano or the keyboard. I have experience in teaching individuals of a wide age-range - from Kindergarten to over 60. I am currently teaching the piano every week at Fadden Primary School as a part of their After-Hours Music Program.
My students are assigned a new song every week that combines a right-handed melody with left-handed chordal accompaniment. This simple method quickly develops left and right-hand coordination, and gets the student playing music in a very short time. As the student progresses in their playing abilities, they are presented with more challenging arrangements of popular songs that build dexterity and independence of the fingers. Students will develop an understanding of music theory through regular practice of assigned songs, and accompanying information sheets.
I present my students with a wide range of musical styles, genres and topics. These include:
Popular children's songs - eg. "Merrily We Roll Along", "Baa Baa Black Sheep", "Old MacDonald" etc
Traditional songs - eg. "Michael Row The Boat Ashore", "On Top Of Old Smokey", "The Can-Can", "Turkey In The Straw" etc.
Festive songs (Christmas Carols)
Jazz and Blues pieces
Classical Music arrangements
Students will be issued with a display folder for their music sheets during their introductory lesson. Parents will receive progress reports at the end of every school semester, or as desired.
