My name is Jenny Melton and I am a piano teacher in Chicago. All students age 4 and older are welcome to join my studio. My goal is to cultivate independent, collaborative musicians who are lifelong learners of music.
I teach beginners preschool and up, including adults! Anyone can take piano lessons and have success. It takes participation and consistent practice. I use the Faber Piano Adventures method to guide beginners. You can expect to play games, move, sing, and learn your favorite songs and pieces!
Do you already have some piano knowledge? Maybe you took lessons years back and are interested in starting again. We will use classical piano literature series such as The Developing Artist, Alfred Masterwork Editions, and Journey Through the Classics. You can also expect to learn your favorite songs and pieces. We will begin to learn how to interpret lead sheets and chord charts.
We will work through repertoire presented in the final books of classical piano literature compilation series and begin to transition to collections of individual composers' works. As always, you can expect that we will incorporate the music you are interested in learning. Students will be encouraged to learn ensemble literature and collaborate with other musicians.
