Would you feel fulfilled to have your child learn piano quickly,
easily and naturally? Would you like to make use of a program
that builds a solid foundation of around 35 to 50 beautiful pieces
acquired typically over the first year or so of lessons?
Hi, my name is Mavie Marcos. As a piano and voice teacher, I will help
foster a love of music in your child. I have over 13 years of
experience as a professional performer, singer, and songwriter. Soon
after my own kids had been born, I wanted to find a piano program that
would teach my children a broad repertoire of musical pieces while
creating a happy practice environment in the home. I found what I was
looking for in the Simply Music Method.
In the same way that we all learn to speak years before we get to read
and spell, Simply Music Piano temporarily delays music reading and
immerses the student in the experience of playing great-sounding music
immediately. Traditional, reading-based methods start with notation
where it is decoded into musical notes, and then the notes are also
played. In Simply Music, one starts with the pattern on one's fingers
where the focus is on learning by doing and getting the hands on the
keyboard, instead of trying to decipher those little black dots on
that confusing sheet of music. Studies shows that attempting to both
decode and play at the same time slows down the learning process. Once
a more experienced player emerges, students are trained to read music
and progress independently as a musician. In addition to building a
repertoire of music, lessons incorporate elements of music theory,
music history, accompaniment, and sight-reading. Each level ends with
a recording session. Over time, students will build their own
portfolio of recorded songs and performance pieces.
