Rochelle D. Felsburg
PIANO, Homeschooling General Music,
Feel free to browse this website for my policies, background, and goals for my students. I live in the Fredericksburg, Virginia off of Route 1 and Mine Road in the Troon of Lees Hill Subdivision. I do have 6 cats so take note. They are outside most of the time.
We were created to be music makers in all walks of life! Music is also a craft that deserves diligence and practice. With a little work, music can be a wonderful inspiration that will last your whole life long.
My philosophy :
I believe in a well-rounded music education. This includes sight-reading, ear-training, and theory as well as the songs learned each week. I emphasize note-reading and not playing by ear. Although the ability to play by ear is a great help, it puts a cap on music potential if one cannot read the language of music.
For younger music students I employ music flash cards as well as extra coloring sheets to reinforce music. I also have a composer of the month club. As one of my degrees is in composition, I strongly encourage students to write their own music!
I offer at least one recital opportunity a year. Piano students may also opt to play for a judge in the National Federation of Piano Teachers organization.
When the toys of childhood are gone, the gift of MUSIC will live on!
