Is it all just classical music?

Nope, though that does play a pretty big role.  The songs are divided in categories based on time periods, and within each time period there can be quite a variety of pieces to play.  I find this approach very well-rounded – if you were to ignore classical music completely, you might not develop great technique (since contemporary music is seldom as complex), so I try to encourage every student to at least dabble in classical works, as it will inevitably strengthen their performance of pieces in other genres.  On the other hand, it can be more difficult to connect with classical pieces (since they’re further out of sync with the way music is today), so learning a variety of styles and eras is a must.


What you'll learn: Read music notation, Play solo melody lines in first position, Basic music theory, Chord Technique, Accompaniment to simple tunes Play duets.
