Private piano lessons are offered on a weekly or bi-weekly (every other week) basis. An initial free consultation is provided by appointment, during which rates and scheduling are discussed. Lessons are provided by Steve Benson, an experienced teacher who uses a traditional Western-European pedagogical method mixed with modern teaching aids when appropriate. Lessons are tailored to the specific needs of the student and are designed to engender an inherint appreciation for music while also addressing particular deficiencies that may exist. The components of private lessons include ear training, sight reading, rhythm training, technique, performance practice and music theory. Each lesson is individually notated with specific instructions for practice sessions between lessons.
