Annabel has recently learned her first Grade Initial Trinity College Piece. Here we perform the duet of Spring Day.
Andrea is learning this Spanish classic called Malaguena. In this lesson, I help her with a visual breakdown of the notes and how the hands are going to move when she learns and practice the piece. We also take a look at some of the music markings in the piece that are important.
Shayna also started learning Somewhere over the Rainbow. As she is still very young and struggles with reading the words and some of the pitch, we decided to sing together so that she can learn easier in between lessons.
Zeenal wants to sing Firework by Katy Perry but is having trouble with remembering the pitches and projecting a louder voice. I help her to constantly be aware of the pitches by playing along on the keyboard while she has to sing in a louder and more projecting voice.
Nicole is learning Preludio from Albeniz’s Espana Suite. She is having trouble with the Arpeggio section and putting it hands together. In this video we have a look at how to make the execution a bit easier.
Kendra, my youngest and new guitar student recently learned her first guitar duet called Nocturne. During our lesson we decided to make a video of us playing together.

Justin just started with his second Grade 4 TCL Piece called Cucumber Jam. In this video I explain how the counting, especially with the tied notes will sound.
Ben has just finished learning all the notes to Bach’s Prelude in C. In this video we take a look at practicing and playing the End Section correctly.

Well done Yian! I am super proud of your achievement. Keep up the good work.
