In the spectrum of students I have taught, my adult students have been some of my favorites! Piano lessons for adults are a bit different from children’s lessons, both because of maturity level and motivation. Because my adult students usually have a specific idea of what they’d like to get out of their lessons, my curriculum for them is flexible, and is based on their interests. Here is a general idea of some of the concepts I can include in piano lessons for adults.
Each lesson follows this general format:
-One or more songs from a trusted method book, such as Alfred or Bastien
-Exercises to increase dexterity and speed, such as Hanon or Czerny exercises
-Piano scale and chord progression, appropriate to student’s skill level
-A supplemental song that the student requests (pop, rock, etc.)
-1-2 pages of theory work, if needed
