Ms Claire utilizes Nancy and Randall Faber’s Piano Adventures series to build a knowledge of music theory, piano techniques, and a wide range of music styles. At each lesson, Ms Claire reviews the assigned songs and activities of the previous week, provides constructive feedback on areas to improve, and instruction of new concepts and techniques. Ms Claire customizes each lesson to the individual student and helps them to feel comfortable and at ease at each lesson.

Ms Claire fosters a solid foundation of vocal technique and musical knowledge in each of her voice lessons. Each lesson begins with vocal warm ups tailored to each student’s range and ability. Next, younger students use the “Singing Lessons for Little Singers” and/or “Full Voice Workbook Series”, each of which introduces the student to vocal technique, reading music, and singing a range of repertoire that is age appropriate. Older students explore sight reading music, some music theory, and ending the lesson by working on one or two songs. Songs are selected based on vocal skill level, voice quality and range, student interest, and exposure to a variety of vocal styles. Students are also encouraged to bring sheet music that they wish to learn (ie. for musical tryouts, festivals, church, etc.).

Getting the Most Out of Your Lesson
In order to attain the most enjoyment and learning, students perform regular, age and skill level appropriate practicing. Music is no accident, it takes careful dedication. For piano students, that necessitates access to an 88 key piano. For voice students, that means access to a device that can play recorded accompaniment sent via email. At each lesson, students will bring a spiral bound notebook in order to take notes during the lesson as well as write down the practice plan for the week.
