Piano Lessons with Cody Nelson. I've performed locally and also internationally, and recently completed my LTCL from Trinity College London. I've been teaching for 7 years, and I've taught almost all methods both traditional and alternative. I studied pedagogy with Dr. David Hatch.
I believe the best method is that which is tailored to the student. Some students learn better when they have a lesson book that they can read from, some learn better with a freer approach. Some learn better playing more popular music, some learn better from the classics. I believe in an integrated approach to piano, and try to help my students understand the practical, theoretical and historical basis for the music that they work on. I believe that the ability to read is as important as the ability to recite.
I teach all levels of music from Mary Had a Little Lamb to Liszt's Transcendental Etudes.
My main goal in piano lessons is to instill a love of music. If that love happens, the practice and the skills with follow. I'm very flexible with hours, and I am willing to travel if your circumstances require. I also teach composition.
