Felicity firmly believes that all students should develop proficiency at reading music, and not solely attempting to play by ear. Music theory is an important part of musical training and she incorporates the study of music theory from the very first piano lesson.
At the early stages of their development, it is essential that parents assist their children with establishing a regular practice regime. It is essential that parents take a moment to assist with scheduling in times for practice and record these in the child's practice diary sheet on a weekly basis. It is also highly recommended that for the first 2 - 3 months of piano lessons, that parents sit in during the student's practice to ensure that the teacher's practice suggestions are being carefully followed. Felicity provides advice on strategies to help motivate students to practice on a regular basis and is happy to answer any queries or concerns outside of the lesson to provide parents with additional support. Felicity maintains a high level of care towards her students and is happy to go that extra mile so that your child can get the most out of his/her lessons.
