Piano Lessons with Downingtown Music Academy
Online or In-Person
Students Four and up are welcome to take piano lessons. Beginners learn how to read music fluently and develop correct techniques during piano lessons, while intermediate and advanced students expand their technical skills and repertoire, learning everything from classical to popular music and begin to better understand how music is structured so they can read a piece increasingly more quickly.
- All lessons are recorded and sent to students within 24 hours so students and parents can see how they are improving each week and remember assignments
- Young children are encouraged to engage in creative exploration on the piano using teacher structured improvisation, music theory games, and very simple songwriting exercises
- Each week beginning students are invited to select songs from given choices relating to the topic they learned in class. This allows a sense of independence and control for students who are not advanced enough to work outside of a lesson book.
- More advanced students are invited to choose their own repertoire for lessons in addition to provided music theory and technical books
- Strong emphasis is placed on music theory skills and sightreading which help students become more fluent, independent piano players. Music is like learning to read a foreign language at first! Practice makes perfect.
- Students are taught about the lives and writing styles of various composers alongside the music they learn and invited to watch video performances of their compositions.
