Students will learn to craft an expressive variety of sounds and combine them to make persuasive musical thought.
Lessons include three aspects of development: technique, studies and repertoire. The
Right and left hand progressive exercises will develop purity of tone and accuracy of intonation.
Melodic studies in the Piatti and Popper collections reinforce concepts discussed in lessons and segue to the repertoire.
The classical repertoire is rich and expressive and there is much of it to enjoy. Peter also encourages students who wish to persue alternative styles such as jazz, popular, bluegrass, orchestral, chamber and rock.
There are two annual recitals for students to share their music.
Young students have the option to prepare for festivals and competitions, including the Seattle Young Artists' Festival, the Performing Arts Festival of the Eastside and the Music Teachers National Association Competition.
Students are encouraged to participate in ensemble playing and audition for youth symphony programs or community orchestras.
