Just had an exciting moment in online teaching a student today! Some students love to create their own music, while others are more reticent. This student has always been in the reticent category. We were working on Miniature No. 2 from the Miniatures book by Juan Cabeza. He easily sight read it, and I asked him to change it in some way and provided an example. He instantly came up with several different ways to play it, by varying the hands, playing in parallel motion, switching the accompaniment from left hand to right hand, etc. Then we transposed it to several keys! This idea is worked into the Miniatures book, and I saw how well it can work in action today!! This book is suitable for students in Level 3 of Piano Safari or who have graduated from Level 3. pianosafari.com/product/miniatures/... See MoreSee Less
I Bought this and my son loves it. He said the only part he found odd was 3 quarter notes in 6/8 times for the c minor miniature. Isn’t the grouping supposed to be quarter tied to an eighth twice? He found it odd to look at the grouping ? But loves the book
I love Juan Cabeza’s music! It is so very interesting and varied:) I can’t wait to take a look at his Miniatures...

I have two children beginning Piano Safari Level 3. I've found that making videos about certain concepts is easier and more time efficient than trying to explain it during an online lesson. So I made this video to introduce Mountain Climbing in Technique Book 3. Here it is! Enjoy! ... See MoreSee Less
