Lessons Unlimited music school offers private piano lessons at each of our St. Louis locations. Our piano teachers do not exclusively rely on a single piano instruction method when teaching our students. There is no such thing as a one and only “right”or “best” method for teaching individual piano lessons. We use a composite approach by incorporating parts of several different methods into a tailored program to best fit each student, and the learning styles that they will most benefit from.
We draw from techniques found in the Alfred Piano, Bastien Piano Basics, Faber & Faber, Burnam’s Step by step, and Michael Aaron methodologies. The instruction approach is tailored to the individual skill, rate of progress, and learning style of each student. At this time we do not use or incorporate the Suzuki method for any piano lessons.
We firmly believe that music reading is a fundamentally basics skill that all musicians should have. Our curriculum puts an early emphasis on the development of music and note reading skills for beginner students enrolling in private piano lessons. Reading is taught along side of other basic concepts such as key and octave identification and fingering and hand positioning skills.
Classical music is the foundation of our piano lessons curriculum. Each of our students are taught and expected to progress through a classical music repertoire. As students advance and gain skill and confidence, your instructor will begin to incorporate other styles and genres of music based on each student’s preference and interest.
