  • Description - Totally Cool Piano Studio

    Virginia Smith is a full-time piano and guitar instructor, teaching adults and children since 1993. She loves sharing music through her skillful, fun, and creative instruction. During her private lessons she strives to listen well to her students and motivate and encourage with positive teaching, clear goals, fun studio activities (such as rewriting song lyrics with the student so their song is now about "pizza"), and rewards (such as the wall chart, listing all her students and the books they have each computed. Students earn $100 for 50 books completed). She teaches music reading, ear-training and technique thoroughly, so the student is able to play many styles of music. She uses method books from Alfred's Basic Piano Library, one of the best and most popular, as well as selections of "popular" music. Piano is an excellent first instrument, and is great preparation for learning other instruments. Many people consider learning a musical instrument to be part of a child's basic education. It really does make them smarter, and it can give confidence, too.
