I believe that my main mission as a piano teacher is not to discourage students from studying music. It’s easy to lose motivation when you don’t choose repertoire yourself and play only things that the teacher or parents assign.
That’s why my main rule is – tell me what you want to play and I will help you to learn it.
Tell me about your favorite music, movies, musicals, and we’ll find pieces that are meaningful to you. I will also assign you to listen to some classical pieces so you could explore some new music, but it is totally your call what you chose to play.
My favorite piano method is Faber's Piano Adventures for various levels starting from young beginners (ages 5-6). You can look inside these books here.
