Class content will include but not be limited to concepts such as rhythm, intervals, music symbols, harmony, form, basic music history, and key signatures. A strong emphasis will be given to training the ear through singing and active listening. Within 2-3 months, a beginning student should be capable of playing short classical or popular pieces with fun and imagination.

Intermediate to Advanced:
Adult students can start at any age. “You’re never too old” is proven by Victoria’s enthuasiastic embrace of adult students of all ages, levels and abilities.
Students will be transported to the times: Romanticism, Modernism, etc.. She introduces them to the Russian classics, such as Skriabin, Tchaikovsky, and Rachmaninov. She immerses them in the subtleties and unique style of each composer. Her greatest challenge in teaching adults is to devise an individualized teaching method for each student depending on their goals. With adults, she uses her own method, which covers a thorough look at all aspects of piano study in a fun and well-paced progression.
Students of all ages develop not only the love of music but the thrill and enthuasiasm of learning. She tailors each course to the individual. From the hobbyist who wishes to play showtunes at home, to the aspiring concert pianist. She can customizes a program to suit your desires.
