I recently started piano lessons with Tara Henton after not taking lessons for 24 years. Tara took time to find out my current skill level, what I feel are my current weaknesses, what I wanted from the lessons and also what my short and medium term goals were.
Tara recommended a method book specifically to progress my knowledge and work on my weaker areas as well as providing additional resources and exercises all of which we have been working on during our weekly online Zoom lessons.
Tara has a very encouraging and positive manner, providing constructive criticism and ways to improve my playing including learning processes, styling and practical tips.
Within a very short space of time, my playing has improved especially around my weaker areas, I have achieved some of my short term goals and am able to play some pieces confidently which I would not have been able to do before our lessons. Most importantly I am throughly enjoying my lessons and loving playing the piano again.
