8. Tyler Larson - Piano Instructor
"My name is Tyler Larson. I've been playing the piano and performing for almost 25 years. I've been teaching for 15 years. I'm classically trained. Despite being classically trained, my one-man piano and vocal performances are primarily pop and rock centric (think dueling pianos, but only one guy playing the piano).
My ultimate goal is for my students to embrace their skills on the instrument and claim it as their own as fast as possible. After embracing their craft as their own, they begin to enjoy practicing and strive to share what they are learning by performing songs for others.
My teaching method is structured around reading music, posture, technique, metronome work, identifying chord patterns, putting together melodies and chord structures by ear, writing songs, and performance.
My expectation with my students is that they practice for a solid 30 minutes each day. Our 30-45 minutes together will be broken down into segments of performing assigned pieces, working through new concepts, assigning new work, and many opportunities to ask and answer questions along the way.
