Marla Baisley | Piano

Hi! My name is Marla Baisley and I have been teaching piano lessons in Milford for 25 years. I teach all ages but specialize in teaching school aged children. Most of my students start around the age of 6-10, but I have successfully taught children as young as 3 years old. I focus on teaching how to read music, music theory and technic but most of all I believe that learning music should be fun and exciting. I use Bastien Piano Basic books to begin teaching basic skills and then use them as a supplementary tool as I encourage the child to decide what THEY want to play and use popular songs that they know and love to further develop their note reading skills, timing, technic and overall understanding of music. By allowing them to choose songs that they are interested in, they begin to truly appreciate music, grow their confidence and feel a sense of accomplishment and pride. Many times children lose interest if they become bored or aren't seeing progress, but I ensure that their love of the piano and desire to learn will grow with each lesson!
