I taught "Outer Space" to a 5-year-old student today. We drew a map of the piece to show the form: Space part, Earth improvisation, Space part, Sun improvisation, Space Part, Shooting Star Glissando. Notice the arrow on Earth. She drew an arrow and said, "That's my house." And she even had it pretty much in the right spot! Fun teaching day today! ... See MoreSee Less

This past Saturday, our local group of piano teachers hosted an event called the "Pop Showcase." We hired a bassist and drummer to perform with our piano students in a recital. My student in the video below started in Piano Safari Level 1 and is now at the end of Piano Safari Level 3. He is the same little guy you may have seen in the Hungry Herbie Hippo and Alphabet Boogie Performance Videos on our website! He absolutely loved playing with this ensemble and you can really hear his enthusiasm come through in Martha Mier's "Beach Buggy Boogie" from Jazz, Rags and Blues Book 2. ... See MoreSee Less

From my recent studio recital. The Ash Grove from Piano Safari Level 2. Not sure why this Welsh folk song makes me think of Thanksgiving, but it does. Happy Thanksgiving to our friends in the U.S. ... See MoreSee Less

This student is 10. She began in Piano Safari when she was 7 and is now in Piano Safari Level 3. She is a wonderful composer as well. This is her newest piece, called Brisk Walk, which she premiered at my Studio Recital a few weeks ago. We have discovered that the children naturally create compositions using: Patterns learned in their Rote Pieces (Level 1), Rote Pieces and Technique Patterns (Piano Safari Level 2), and Scales, Chord Progressions, and standard Accompaniment Patterns (Level 3). Enjoy! ... See MoreSee Less

Had to share the cutest teaching moment of yesterday. My last student of the day is an adorable 5 year old who just started piano 6 weeks ago. We were working on Old MacDonald in Piano Safari Level 1, Unit 1. It uses just fingers 3 and 2 in the LH, and she had tucked fingers 4 and 5 under her hand. I told her to get the fingers all out, and make a good fuzzy house (hand shape), and that Fingers 4 and 5 are on vacation so they just hang out. She said, "Yes, Fingers 4 and 5 don't play. They just listen to the music!" :) ... See MoreSee Less
