Dr. Alex has been teaching children and adults in private piano lessons for over 8 years. He is currently accepting students in the Peterborough, NH and Manchester, NH areas. Previously he had a studio in the Buffalo, NY area.
When learning music and playing an instrument (techniques, music theory, literature, and history), the student develops skills that are easily transferred to other activities: physical coordination, listening skills, and performance experience, language acquisition, analytical thinking, logic and math skills, appreciation of art, physics, culture, and history, mental and physical discipline, goal setting, time management skills, emotional control, spiritual development, and a sense of accomplishment.
Learning and applying these skills helps develop character, social bonds, and memorable experiences.
What to expect from a piano music lesson
Every lesson will attempt to cover aspects of traditional musical education:
1. Scales and exercises. These may require concentration at first but the benefits will last a lifetime! Good hand and body posture are paramount!
2. Musical analysis and theory. Understanding how a piece is put together helps to enjoy, learn, and memorize a piece.
3. With each piece we will talk about its style, historical context, and significance in the literature.
4. When interpreting a musical work, we express its emotional and spiritual impact through the sounds we make.
5. At least two student recitals will be organized per year. Students will be prepared to play at each event.
