Private piano lessons are available for children and adults in the Dalton, Varnell, Cohutta, and Chatsworth areas of North Georgia. I teach at my home in Varnell several days per week, and offer lessons in Chatsworth on Mondays at Spring Place Baptist Church.
Lessons are weekly and generally last 30 minutes each. Lessons emphasize sight reading, theory, technique and improvisation. A variety of styles may be studied, including classical, sacred and popular, depending on the student's goals and abilities.
Usually, we have one recital per year. I strongly encourage everyone to play for recital, but no one is forced, and it is not required that the music be memorized.
For practice at home, an acoustic piano is best - a keyboard will have a very different feel and sound in comparison. However, an 88-key digital piano or keyboard with weighted keys and pedal will suffice for beginners.
