Teaching Basic Technique to Beginners

Many thanks to those who were able to join me on the recent Facebook live training on the topic of teaching basic technique to beginners.

It was a joy to share the spotlight with my almost five-year-old daughter, Emma-Kate.

She was oh so good and did a fantastic job demonstrating loose and relaxed wrists, arms, and shoulders.

No worries if you missed the live video. You can check it out below.

  1. I teach piano lab classes at a middle school (grades 6-8). Around 95 percent of these kids are beginners and hand positions and postures are not always the best as you can imagine. Sometimes I have as many as 24 students in a class so they need to be able to monitor themselves. I demonstrate correct posture and hand position, but I think sometimes they get tired of watching my demonstrations and tune me out. Could you possibly post a video covering those concepts for middle school students to view? Watching someone else for a change might be a good attention-getter and reinforcement. Thanks.

    1. Hi, Mary Jane! Thanks for your question. I’ll be happy to post a video on this topic for middle school students! I’ll be thinking on some analogies to use that would appeal to middle school students. They have a different level of humor, fun imagination, as you know! And it’s a joy to work with this age group. Best to you as you continue in your important work 🙂

  2. I teach all ages, some at a school and some from my home. But some middle school analogies for hand positions etc, would be great for me too. I have always told the littlies about the MOUSE HOUSE shape, for hands, but some little devils like to squash the mouse’s head deliberately, with cheeky giggles.
