teaching an adult who don't know anything about music
« on: November 01, 2014, 05:02:22 PM »
Hello everybody,

I would like to ask you about how to do a piano class to an adult who don't know nothing about music. The class lasts for one hour, and I don't know how to focus it. I don't want that she get bored whit my lessons, and it's for it that I'm asking to you. I thing I can first do a little bit of theory, and later do an improvisation whit she, while I do an accompaniment. Also maybe we can try to read any easy score.. I don't know if I should to focus the lesson about the piano chords, or about trying to read a score.
What is your opinion?

Thank you very much!! :)
