Nancy Rost: Piano Lessons

My lesson studio policy

Posted on September 8, 2015 with 1 comment


Commitment to the individual: Each student has unique motivations, interests and learning styles. I will get to know what works best for you. We will create your lesson plan together and adapt it according to your needs. I will continually seek out teaching materials, repertoire (including personalized arrangements), performance opportunities, and other resources tailored to you.

Continuity is key to getting the most out of lessons. Continuity comes from regular attendance, practice and communication. I will make practice/progress notes and put them at the front of your folder/binder, which you’ll bring to each lesson along with your books or materials. This helps ensure continuity both for the student and the instructor.

"Nancy is a patient and kind teacher who easily molds her lessons to the needs of her students." Beth Kille, Music Director, Girls Rock Camp Madison

"I started taking lessons from Nancy  when I was 71 years old.  I had not had any lessons since I was 8 years old.  I could read and play treble clef  notes but not bass clef. Nancy gave me the option of learning to read music or playing by ear.  I tried both and decided playing by  ear was best for me.  Nancy taught me some  basic chords and rhythms which allowed me to play by ear very quickly.  She is a very patient and enthusiastic teacher.  I love to  sit at my keyboard and play with both hands, to my own delight, and to my family’s.  I have played at nursing  homes several times and the guests loved the old  time songs.  I particularly  remember the day I played a piece I had been working on for Nancy  and she clapped her hands and said, 'You have  made progress  by leaps and bounds!'  That made my day." Noel Pearson
