For an iPad to really work for you in lesson time you need to find a good balance between technology and teaching time. This is one skill that is going to become rapidly important as the digital music world grows in leaps and bounds. You’ll squeeze more learning time from your students if you assign Piano app practice time at home. One of the coolest uses of the iPad in a piano teaching studio is the ability to publish compositions. Hi Robin – the ones we reviewed for Piano Geek Week were the ones that we really liked. October 9, 2011 : By TrevorUnbeknownst to many outside the piano teaching world, piano teachers don’t start work the moment a student walks through the door. If you supply piano books for your students, you should definitely be putting a mark-up on the materials… if only to cover your time driving to and from the music store. At least once a month your piano students should have the opportunity to perform in front of other piano students. Like piano playing, composing is an art in itself that requires time beyond a standard piano lesson.
The “rock band” concept isn’t as easy for piano teachers as it is for guitar teachers. This is along the same vein as teaching piano to homeschoolers; that is, preschoolers have more flexibility in their schedule, which will allow you to teach piano at times when you normally could not have thus increasing your potential for income-earning hours. It certainly isn’t for everyone, but teaching piano lessons in a student’s home affords the opportunity to charge a higher lesson rate.
For those piano teachers who are vocally gifted, consider offering an add-on program to teach your students to accompany themselves as they sing.
This opportunity may vary from region to region, but in Canada, private schools often seek out private piano teachers to offer piano lessons to their students on campus.
Andrea and I grew our music school from 30 students to 300 in a little over 3 years, proving it is possible for piano teachers to make a fantastic salary. Following his beautifully crafted duet with pianist Kenny Barron, Now Was The Time (High Note, 2009), Cocolamus Bridgefurther cements the extraordinary career of Harvie S.
Harvie S's inimitable, fearless and fun-filled approach to Latin jazz reaches a new pinnacle on Funky Cha. This kind of hand-in-glove development has characterized Harvie's brand of jazz over the past several years, demonstrating why he's not only one of the best bassists in the land but also one heck of a small-group conceptualist. Harvie loves Monk as much as Latin sounds, and the influences meld well on tunes like "A Bright Moment, one of the more pensive tracks (until things really get rolling). Led by veteran bass player and composer Harvie S, this first release from the band Eye Contact titled Havana ManaA±a brings us a fresh and clear look at making Latin jazz music. Turkish Musical Instrument Workshops in Istanbul,We as a Les Arts Turc Team offers you a change to learn the basic & advanced levels of Traditional Turkish Music with different Instruments. 2 Hours Lesson Price ( Per Person ) 2 - 4 Student,55 Euro 5 - more,40 Euro 1 Student,70 Euro Lesson Includes.English Language Teaching. A specific sequence of classical Turkish musical forms become a fasyl, a suite an instrumental prelude (pesrev), an instrumental postlude (saz semaisi), and in between, the main section of vocal compositions which begins with and is punctuated by instrumental improvisations taksim.[4] A full fasyl concert would include four different instrumental forms and three vocal forms, including a light classical song, ?arky.
TURKISH MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS,The musical instruments used by Turks are of three main groups: stringed, wind and percussion instruments. The kosney, of which there are several examples in Ungor's collection, is a wind instrument made of an eagles wing bone. The kanun player sits with his instrument on his knees, and with picks made of tortoiseshell attached to rings on the forefinger of each hand. I had already for the next day, an appointment to have a lesson with Huseyin Ozkilic, a distinguished teacher of this instrument in Istanbul! We as a Les Arts Turc Team offers you a change to learn the basic & advanced levels of Traditional Turkish Music with different Instruments.
The lessons are given private or group upon request by our teachers in our art galley and work shop area located in Sultanahmet.
Ottoman court music has a large and varied system of modes or scales known as makams, and other rules of composition. Followers of the Mevlevi Order or whirling dervishes are a religious sufi sect unique to Turkey but well-known outside of its boundaries. Dervishes of the Mevlevi sect simply dance a sema by turning continuously to music that consists of long, complex compositions called ayin. It would not be wrong to say that if a single instrument were to represent Turkish folk music it would have to be the baglama. I had already for the next day, an appointment to have a lesson with Huseyin Ozkilic, a distinguished teacher of this instrument in Istanbul!
Ethnomusicologist Etem Ruhi Ungor, whose research in this field is known worldwide, has travelled thousands of miles over the years, from city to city and village to village in search of traditional Turkish musical instruments. Popped in to see you all after a brief visit to see Phil Taylor and be interviewed by BBC Radio Jersey about Poppy Day to talk about my composing of songs for Poppy Day.
I look forward to seeing you on Red Nose Day for the cake sale and to be part of the all round charming ethos that is Helvetia House School. Hi Lindsey a€“ It was a really beautiful show that Helvetia produced yesterday evening and you must all be very proud of yourselves.
May they go from strength to strength giving sound foundations to their pupils and happy memories for all who cherish and attended.
My other half and I had the absolute pleasure of attending your 125 year celebration at Haute Vallee School last night, to watch our niece Kathryn Haynes perform. The last thing I want to become is a pest of a parent who emails after Helvetia's specialA occasions. It is not just the quality of the show but the obviousA affection and respectA between all the girls and their teachers, it is wonderful to see. Even our son Tom, who as you know was only supposed to come the first night, said he was pleased he saw the show a second time.
Once again many congratulations to all the teachers, I hope you have a glass or two of your favourite tipple over the weekend and celebrate you pulled off yet another superb performance. Really well done to all the girls on their splendid performance today, it really was super!A  They must all be so proud of themselves! I must just take this opportunity to thank you and your team for such a wonderful evening last night. It really was the best production I have seen from a school in quite some time and I just wanted to say well done to all involved. Please pass on my thanks to all your lovely teachers, what a wonderful open evening and all the girlsa€™ work looked amazing.
And thank you Mrs Woodward for being such a positive influence on the whole school it really shows in how happy all the girls are at school. We wanted to write you a quick note to express our delights in our daughtera€™s progress since she has been in Form 2. We will continue to encourage our daughter from home so that hopefully she will continue to flourish for the rest of the school year.
My eldest daughter, Jade (another old Helvetian) was only saying that if she had little girls (she has 2 boys) then she would send them to Helvetia.
Thank you so much for forwarding on the Souvenir Programme my Gran was thrilled and still clearly remembers her head teacher Mrs Haines!!
I attended your school from approximately 1967 leaving in 69 (age 7 years) when my family moved to England, where I have lived since. From memory the school had only just started to take boys back then and we were definitely in a minority! I still have my old cap badge a few pics of me in my uniform a€“ very dark navy and pale blue.
I remember the school with fond memories - my mother driving to school each day from St Peters a€“ both of us singing Winchester Cathedral a€“ passing the statute of Queen Victoria and visiting the beach on summer afternoons. My own son age 7 is attending a private school (Holme Grange School in Wokingham, Berkshire) which in many ways reminds me of Helvetia a€“ hopefully, he will also look back with fond memories of his early school years. The following are extracts from several letters received from one of the schoola€™s first pupils who, after a brilliant scholastic career, has settled in Melbourne, Australia and is still teaching.
In those days there were three - not two a€“ granite steps leading from the front gate to the garden where flowers flourished under the care of Miss Joste. This was in 1890 and I was learning to subtract and multiply, using weird numbers like 57,003 by 3,006 !


There was a large garden with a lawn, a conservatory, several fruit trees a€“ particularly a Morello cherry tree a€“ and I remember the acid taste of the many cherries, big, black and juicy, but seldom ripe, I have had from it. On wet days and in cold weather we played in the laundry and must have been a nuisance to Mrs. I remember two cats and a collie dog about the house a€“ one tom, a slate grey beauty of extreme dignity who basked equally well in the sunshine as in the homage of at least one of the scholars. I believe Nan and I first came to school about my fifth birthday.A  We arrived under the escort of my two bothers, making our entry at the side door in the front garden near the gum tree.
The annual concerts were a trial of skill and patience.A  A cold sinking at the pit of the stomach preceded them but the plays were joy unconfined. Such were the beginnings of our School!A  We open wide the doors of Memory and glimpse the childhood days of sixty years ago.A  Let us turn to the activities of the school today and then quietly remember the life-time of service and devotion given so generously by the two sisters we older ones remember, honour and revere. I can hardly wait to begin experimenting with Apps and setting up my studio to be iPad friendly this summer! Hours of planning and preparation go into each and every half hour lesson a piano teacher teaches. Or… we could remember that, unlike other professions, we have 100% control over our income.
Take advantage of the flexibility of homeschool families and make more money by teaching piano during the day. Master classes provide a venue for performance practice, listening practice, and community bonding plus power of group fees means more money for less time. Our preschool piano program is free to offer giving you the ability to quickly add this program to your studio with no financial risk. Protect the money you earn with professional help that can recognize ALL of the expenses necessary to run a piano studio. If you are comfortable with this piano teaching format, and you are needing to increase your teaching hours, parents often appreciate the convenience factor and will be more likely to sign up for lessons. Students can choose to increase their lesson time by 15 minutes or even add on a second lesson per week. The problem with teaching family members is that when one is off, the whole lot are usually off. It was, after all, Jordan who all but drove the bassist to play twin to her soaring bebop vocals. The bassist's musical sensibilities couldn't be summed up better than on the opening track, a re-visioning of Monk's "Rhythm-A-Ning.
His Latin beats are definably Latin but consistently fresh; there are no generic mercado rhythms here. Along with losing the rest of his last name he seems to have lost his substantial history as a straightahead jazz bassist as well. The six-man ensemble consists of Harvie S A on bass and claves, Gregor Huebner on piano and violin, Bruce Arnold on guitar and processed guitar, Ed Uribe on drums and percussion, Memo Acevedo on congas, bongos, and miscellaneous percussion, and Barry Olsen on the trombone.
We have professional teachers and will be happy to teach you the techniques and imporving yourself during your visit in istanbul. Turkish Classical Music,Ottoman court music has a large and varied system of modes or scales known as makams, and other rules of composition.
A strictly classical fasyl remains is the same makam throughout, from the introductory taksim and usually ending in a dance tune or oyun havasy.
Turkish musical instruments were produced by the master-apprentice method in the Ottoman period. It is a stringed instrument played on the lap and the strings are stretched across the upper surface of a wooden box. Another unusual instrument to be seen is a long-necked stringed instrument called a cura.There are bells from almost every part of Turkey, and a nefir dating from 1859 made from the horn of a wild goat and used to call worshippers to the ceremonies of the Bektasi dervishes.
The strings used to be made of gut, but since the early 20th century nylon strings, which give a more powerful sound and are easily available in various gauges, have superseded these. With the left hand he adjusts the pegs to the correct pitch for the piece as the makam changes, while playing the melody with his right.
A number of notation systems were used for transcribing classical music, the most dominant being the Hamparsum notation in use until the gradual introduction of western notation.
These pieces are both preceded and followed by songs using lyrics by the founder and poet Mevlana Jelaleddin Rumi. The baglama was developed from another instrument called the kopuz, which is also used today. Therefore percussion instruments used for this purpose apart from drums, include 'kudum' (small double drums used in mystic religious music) and the darbuka. Every inch of his tiny flat is filled with books and his collection of 700 musical instruments, including many whose appearance and even names are unfamiliar. You and your staff ably supported by your parents provide an exemplary teaching and learning environment. My camera takes a NEFF file, which basically means that I have to edit every photo individually.
And it was lovely to see the affection that all the girls showed toward you and the other teachers a€“ Helvetia is a very special place. However after the last two nights I just had to contact you to congratulate you and all the wonderful teachers and of course all the fantastic girls. I know Steve and I say it many times but it really does warm our hearts and we feel great pride that Emily is lucky enough to be part of the school. Considering my kids spend the majority of their time arguing(!) I think this has to be the biggest compliment of all!! Thank you so much for another wonderful production from all the amazing and gorgeous girls.
We credit you and the wonderful school for all the progress she has made so far and also for the noticeable increased self-confidence that she is showing in her learning. As always please let us know if you think there is anything we can do to support you in her learning. I have such fond memories of your school, and it certainly gave my girls the best grounding ever, I am so pleased you are carrying on with it. She has asked me to pass on her thanks to you and also to say she has very happy memories of her time at Helvetia.
And yet a piano teacher salary is based solely on teaching hours; prep time is apparently “off the clock”. Some clever niche marketing and attention to word-of-mouth generating events in your studio are great ways to break into this market. Plus… it also allows you to reach a market in your area that may be previously un-touched!
He has courage way beyond the narrow definition of the word, and has a fecund mind that is continually searching for new horizons towards which to stretch, taking with him a bass violin that sings with almost limitless possibilities.
But the song has a Bossa Nova slant, and here, S shows his grasp of the swaggering rhythm, as does the percussionist on the date, James Metcalfe.
His bass and Daniel Kelly's piano pulse out Thelonian arhythmic fragments over Beaver Bausch's tappy drum groove, building in quirky intensity until we're jumping to find out where they're going with it.
Only Kelly and tenor man Scott Robert Avidon, who guests on three tracks, are carryovers from S's last album, Texas Rumba, yet the full band sounds as if it has been together for years.
But Harvie S's turn toward a strictly Afro-Cuban musical path is not as out of step as it would seem.
Nurdogan, who kindly explained and showed me what he works on in his establishment "Les Arts Turcs". A rectangular drum of a kind no longer made today comes from the Mediterranean town of Silifke, and there is even a conch shell of the type known as a triton, which sailors used to communicate at sea. The pegs used today are another recent modification that did not exist in the original instrument.
Turkish classical music is taught in conservatories and social clubs, the most respected of which is Istanbul's Uskudar Musiki Cemiyeti. However shorter ?arky compositions, precursors to modern day songs, are a part of this tradition, many of them extremely old, dating back to the 14th century; many are newer, with late 19th century songwriter Haci Arif Bey being especially popular. Lutes, also stringed instruments, have a sound box terminating in a neck which serves both as a handle and a device for extending the strings beyond the sound box. Percussion instruments were first brought to Europe after being seen in the Mehterband of the Turkish army around the sixteenth century. Nurdogan, who kindly explained and showed me what he works on in his establishment "Les Arts Turcs".


As well as obscure folk instruments, his remarkable collection includes a tanbur (classical long necked lute) made in 1887 by Uzunyan belonging to Tanburi Cemil Bey, a lavta (lute) made by Kosti Ventura in 1840 which belonged to Sultan Abdulaziz, girifts (reed instruments with eight holes) which belonged to the girift player Asim Bey and the famous ney players Tevfik and Sevki Sevgin, two 18th century dulcimers, rebabs (spike fiddles made of coconut shells), and kemences (Black Sea fiddles). The show was brilliant, the songs and performances so enjoyable and learning about the history of the school was veryA interesting.
Ia€™ve enjoyed watching the girls take part in the various performances - they were brilliant.
You may remember that she wrote the liberation song that was played for Prince Charles when he visited Jersey.
If the thought of yearly increases is too scary, consider a slightly higher increase once every two years.
He imagines lines that make great leaps across the soundscape, darting this way and that, zigzagging and flying in colorful whorls, and sometimes he underlines the harmony with a gravitas that recalls Charlie Haden's thunderously stuttering pizzicato. Jay Collins, the final piece of the puzzle, leaps in with the melody on tenor and reveals how nicely everything fits together. They even succeed at the difficult fusion of jazz and the manic guaracha rhythm on Kelly's "Earquake. His work with an impressive list of jazz's A-list (Dexter Gordon, Sheila Jordan, Grover Washington Jr.) was the best training ground for his second act.
These tracks will appeal to those who like interesting rhythmic variation and intelligent arrangements.
The upper surface is made of sycamore wood, the lower surface of pinewood, the bridge is of maple. Drums and the zurna go together and are mostly used in folk music and they are an indispensable part of wedding or circumcision festivities. While he was showing us his web page, I saw on it that he offered music lessons, and I asked him if I could recieve a ney lesson and. These shells were also blown by circumcisers to announce that the operation was over.The many wind instruments in yngor's collection include the zurna (Turkish oboe), the longest type of which is made in western Turkey, and which becomes shorter as it crosses the country eastwards. Before these were introduced the musician obtained the notes he desired by pressing on the strings with the nail of his left thumb, making it a far more difficult instrument to play. The instrument is played with all the fingers, using a technique comparable to that of the harp and guitar. The kopuz, also a stringed instrument, was used in Central Asia by Turkish tribes about two thousand years ago and is mentioned in the tales of Dede Korkut (a sage, the mentor of the Turkish Oguz tribe who narrates moralistic epic tales to a chieftain of the tribes). While he was showing us his web page, I saw on it that he offered music lessons, and I asked him if I could recieve a ney lesson and. An unusual metal ney (classical Turkish reed flute) is one of the most interesting pieces in the collection. I started the process yesterday, and will work as quickly as possible to get a disc of images to you. The money she won for the school was used to buy the play equipment in the little ones playground. Ivatt for Maths and Latin, and Miss Ann Joste for Sewing Class on Wednesdays a€“ I disliked sewing and made canvas samples in lines and squares of violent purples, greens an blues which in memory still pursue me. Like Haden, he makes the strongest showing in the very simplicity of his harmonic approach to the art of the song. The best Afro-Cuban jazz bassists, like Bobbie Rodriguez (Machito, Tito Puente) and Andy Gon-zalez (Ft.
Cubalypso is the opening gem, a basic chord progression with an Afro-Cuban beat, led and voiced by the processed guitar of Bruce Arnold sounding much like a steel drum. The music reflects different emotions, mainly unrequited love and when it is sad it may sound depressing, but when expressing joy, happiness or pleasure you will find yourself dancing to the rhythm. Haci Arif Bey was the greatest virtuoso of the kanun in this original form in the 19th century. It is the instrument best adapted to polyphonic music, and might be called the piano of Turkish music. I couldn't imagine how would be a lesson of a so exotic -for me-, difficult and mystical instrument like the ney, but the calmness and the experience of Huseyin, made me live the lesson with serenity, attention and a great curiosity.
We come across the belief among the shamanist Turks that a warrior with a kopuz at his waist was protected in battle from injury at enemy hands.
Today there are various trends in Turkish pop music and the lute is one of the main instruments accompanying the soloist both in classical Turkish music, popular mainstream music and folk songs.
For many years drums were "aristocratic" instruments, primarily used with trumpets to sound fanfares as the king entered a theatre or throne room.
I couldn't imagine how would be a lesson of a so exotic -for me-, difficult and mystical instrument like the ney, but the calmness and the experience of Huseyin, made me live the lesson with serenity, attention and a great curiosity. It was made by Neyzen Tevfik when he was staying at a psychiatric hospital undergoing treatment for alcoholism. Would it be an idea for me to do a downsized version of each file and put it onto a Flicker slide-show so that everyone can have a look? Apache, Eddie Palmieri), not only locked down the slightly-off-the-beat tumbao, they were also jazzers at heart who brought jazz sensibilities to their groove.
There are many different Jazz directions to be heard in this music; certainly the Latin rhythm is prominent throughout. Bass Guajira is a slow paced guajira with the aid of bass, violin, guitar, and percussions only, creating a sensuous stream of music and rhythm. The next kanun virtuoso was the 20th century musician Ferid Alnar, who won a reputation as a very young man with his unusual style of playing, and was regarded as a master before he had reached the age of 20. We did a little bit of teory (the names of the different neys depending on their size and tune, the name of the different notes, a brushstroke of history.) for all that I had to write notes, and then we alterned also with the practice (posture, hand position, how to blow, the fingering.) and I made it sound differents notes!! Turkish strolling minstrels brought the baglama to Anatolia and in fact, everyone knew how to play this instrument. In Turkey there are singers who use the lute, just as their counterparts in the West use the guitar.

The other patients kept breaking his wooden neys, and in desperation he removed a length of metal piping from his bed and fashioned a sturdier instrument for himself. In classical Turkish music the zither, tambur, lute, tef (tambourine), darbuka and ney (reed flute) are some of the instruments used, besides the well-known ones also used in the west, including the piano, violin, viola and clarinet. When played in an orchestra or ensemble it sweeps up all the other instruments and leads them on. It was two nice hours of learning and meeting, where Huseyin was opened to answer all my questions, and to give all the explanations that were necessary.
The baglama is so-to-say a friend of the minstrels who at certain times of the year gather at contests and song festivals. It was two nice hours of learning and meeting, where Huseyin was opened to answer all my questions, and to give all the explanations that were necessary.
Texas Rumba is a live workout of the core group he assembled to make those CDs: pianist Daniel Kelly, saxophonist Scott Robert Avidon, trumpeter Gregory Rivkin, drummer Adam Weber and conguero Renato Thoms. The kanun is an instrument of special importance, since it can play both jazz and chamber music, and also has the advantage of being a solo instrument, which can play symphonic works. Accompanied by music, repartee between the contestants is sometimes satirical, sometimes filled with irony but never insulting and is fun to listen to.
It is both struck and shaken and sometimes used by young ladies dancing to a melody, in addition to its place in the orchestra.
Rhythm Cat introduces the concept of a 2-beat note in a matter of seconds when even the best, most patient explanations don’t always do. It is played with the help of a plectrum, one fastened to each index finger by an adjustable metal ring. They also can help you finding the right instrument for you.For the music lovers we also can offer teaching lessons for the other Turkish instruments like Saz, Tanbur, Ney, Ud, Kanun, Buzuki, Darbuka, Bendir, Kemence, Zil, Tef, Perkusyon, Tar.
