Boone Piano Studio Student Performances
Jessica tailors assignments to each student using classical, popular, and jazz repertoire. Students who enjoy what they are playing are motivated to practice! Students typically work on multiple pieces of repertoire for 2-3 weeks at a time, and are expected to memorize repertoire in preparation for recitals.
Music Theory and Musicianship:
Students learn scales and develop their sight-reading skills; both are required for the Music Development Program examinations. Jessica uses the music notation software, Finale, with students who are interested in composing their own music.
