Piano Lessons with Jo Harders
Welcome to Jo Harders piano lessons on the Northern Beaches. Jo has been teaching piano since 2003. All ages are welcome.
Traditional Piano Lessons
This is how most of Jo's students start piano lessons. Students work with method books to learn a good balance of note reading, theory, aural skills, piano technique and musicality.
AMEB Piano Exams
Jo's piano students often sit for AMEB exams. This is an option that each student decides for themselves. Students are not pressured or persuaded to sit exams.
Piano Lessons for Preschoolers
Children under 5 years of age learn from the 'Music For Little Mozarts' program by Alfred Publications which involves singing, rhythm, and some book work along with the introduction of piano. Parents are greatly encouraged to attend and help with practice at home.
Things you'll need for piano lessons
- A piano to practice on at home (beginners may use a keyboard).
- An idea of what kind of music you want to play.
- Lots of questions.
- Each student is provided with a homework diary which is needed at every piano lesson.
Piano lesson resources
- Manuscript (Grand Stave)
- Metronome - Either purchase a good metronome or download one of many free apps on your favorite device.
