Six Students, Six Keyboards
A perfect way to engage young students in musical learning.
Classes are designed for beginner students ages six to twelve, organized by age group.
This unique program is highly interactive and comprehensive. It brings children together for one hour every week and consistently develops reading, rhythm, technique and theoretical knowledge along with creativity and artistry.
The experience of learning to play the piano empowers the students with a deep, meaningful understanding of the language of music, enabling them to freely explore themselves artistically within the world of music. Through games and musical activities the students experience a connection with the music as well as with each other that creates extraordinary and magical bonds.
Mandy’s program focuses on classical piano and developing a solid foundation in music theory, piano technique, reading and repertoire. Many of her students have completed Royal Conservatory Exams ranging from grade one to grade eight.
Every lesson includes time spent on keyboard technique combined with theoretical study and ear training. A program of pieces is carefully designed to challenge each student while meeting their individual goals, specific to examination requirements or unique interests of each student. Over the course of the year the lessons may include focused work on duet playing, reading, composition, and interpretation.
Whether pursuing a formal education or musical goals of a more personal nature, Mandy’s main objective is to instil in her students a love and respect for music as an art form as well as independence at the piano.
“I hope that my students gain a fundamental knowledge of music, a respect and appreciation for music as an art form and the ability to lose themselves from time to time within the magical world that music creates.”
