In today's article I am going to explain to you about what a pupil would normally learn in their lesson once they have gone through the preparatory material for piano.
At the start of the lesson I would teach the pupil a grade piece usually for 15 minutes.
I would teach them about:
how to read the music
Technical Exercises and Scales
Depending on the ability and the stage of the pupil's development I would then go through with them technical exercises and scales.
For grade 1 for example the first scale I normally teach is C major Scale.
To finish the lesson I would let the pupil choose a song they would like to learn which they enjoy listening to or playing. It could be from a fun book which is at their grade level or a song of a genre they enjoy.
Before I said goodbye I would ask the pupil or their parent for payment for the lesson. The cost of payment is £15 per half an hour lesson. You can pay me by cash or by PayPal at https://paypal.me/ryanjohnston0123
Lastly I would tell the pupil what they had to do for next week.
