What are the most important things to include in a student's first piano lesson ? Where should I start ? What should I teach first ? Also, can you maybe put up some of your first lesson materials ?
Hello, Tia. I started an e-book that has a VERY COMPREHENSIVE description of a possible Lesson One (and Two... and Three). Eventually I will broaden and expand this material, because the "First Lesson" has more material than can be used in one or even two lessons - I should really call it "The First Few Weeks of Lessons", at least for small children.

My piano student heard me play the first part (of the Pachelbel Canon) and immediately wanted to play it (and it was realistically achievable for her). Thank you! Regards, Tina
Shanette, US: I just purchased O Holy Nightto use as a duet for Christmas Eve Mass. Thank you so much for this simple, easy to read version as my vocalists are not professional and this music won't be quite so intimidating as other arrangements I have. Your expertise is much appreciated!! Merry Christmas!
