Benefits of In Home Lesson
You travel each day for work, school, and numerous errands. Why not let your piano lessons be a time to relax and enjoy the peace of your own home? With piano lessons in your home, you’ll save transportation time, fuel expense, and hassle. Especially if you have small children.
Piano lessons in your home can be even more effective because the instrument is warmed up and ready after the lesson. This provides momentum for students to begin practicing immediately. Practice leads to great results. Results mean money is well spent.
We will use No.1 popular American textbook called Faber & Fabers’ Piano Adventures Piano Lesson Bookseries for begginer and intermediate students. For begginer students, you will learn easy famous songs such as "Old MacDonald Had A Farm" or "Yankee Doodle" etc. If you prefer to study American popular songs, we will also work on it. For intermediate to advanced students, we will mainly play classical music but pop music as well.
