Music Foundations begins next Tuesday
I am so excited for another year of teaching Music Foundations! I love this class, because the students always learn and grow so much, and the music is a lot of fun. I hope you will feel the same as I do.
I've selected a lot of wonderful music for this school year - hopefully, we'll get to it all! You can count on playing pianos, recorders, and guitars every Tuesday in class, and hopefully you will be motivated to practice at home too.
If you don't have a keyboard, guitar, or recorder at home, see if you can borrow one from a friend, relative, or neighbor. You might post a request on the Village Home yahoo groups if needed. It will help a lot to have these instruments at home.
Everyone who joins our class is unique in their abilities and musical knowledge -- some people will have taken the class for a number of years, some have taken private piano lessons, and some are totally new to reading music. It is my goal to give you all enough information in each class so you can learn at your own pace. So if you are new, you won't be expected to play as well as someone who has studied music for several years. And if you are "old," I hope to give you ways to make our songs more complicated and challenging, so you will never be bored. If at any time you feel overwhelmed or underwhelmed by the class, please let me know and I can adjust the pace for you.
Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions or concerns.
