The Greater Syracuse School of Music Piano Program
We offer private piano lessons in the Syracuse area. We strive to help each student find the joy of playing the piano, by working with a teacher who plans lessons according to the student’s individual goals, talents and music educational needs in order to succeed. Children at least 7 years old, teens, adults, including seniors are welcome.
What they can expect at a private piano lesson
What happens in a private piano lesson at the Greater Syracuse School of Music? Each student works with printed sheet music or music lesson books that have been recommended just for them. Their music was chosen to help them meet their goals and is suited to their age, their interest and their level of musical ability and skill. Every week, the students come to the studio for a 30 or 45 minute private lesson. During the lesson, the students play the music they practiced during the week. The teacher discusses each music selection, telling the student all the positive aspects of their ‘performance’. They go over any parts that need coaching, suggestions or corrections. The students try something new at almost every lesson, to improve their sight-reading and to expand their repertoire, the number of songs they know.
We talk about the music. The students are given technical studies to improve their skills. They are taught how to best use their practice time. They learn special music to perform at recitals. All of these aspects of a typical piano lesson are packaged in my low-pressure teaching style, which makes it special, because it is their very own time to receive all of my effort, teaching know-how, my light-hearted nature and my attention.
