The Keys if You Please Piano studio offers a fun, innovative and creative approach to piano lessons on Camano Island, just minutes from downtown Stanwood. It focuses on the sheer delight of playing music and employs a unique “learn by doing” method, Simply Music Piano. This multi-sensory method is easily understood by children and adults alike.
While temporarily delaying the reading process, students are able to quickly play a huge variety of music as well as develop skills in accompaniment playing, composing and improvising. In the same way that we all learn to speak years before we learn to read and spell, this temporary delay in music reading allows the student to be immersed in the experience of immediately playing great-sounding music.
After building a a solid foundation of 30 to 40 beautiful pieces, students move quite naturally into learning to read music. Music theory then becomes logical and practical rather than a cumbersome hurdle preventing musical self-expression.
It is my goal to maximize the likelihood of students acquiring and retaining music as a lifelong companion, and my classes are designed so that students:
- Experience playing as a natural self-expression
- Play a broad repertoire that includes classical, contemporary, blues, jazz, accompaniments and more…
- Learn to “self-generate”, i.e., progress independently as musicians, and have a strong foundation in music reading and theory
- Have a highly positive, self-affirming experience
