References on request
The fee for a half hour lesson is $32. However, lessons are offered and payable by the term in one, two, or monthly payments. Many students take longer lessons and longer lessons are advised for older students. There is a surcharge if I go to your house.
JAZZ PIANO FOR ADULTS and ADVANCED STUDENTS:
With a thorough indoctrination of jazz harmonic structure around the circle of fifths in all keys, I encourage the jazz piano student to use the vast multitude of jazz scales, chords, voicings, riffs and arpeggios as a language with which to base improvisation and maximize creativity.
JAZZ VOCAL LESSONS:
Along with vocal jazz coaching, interpretation, repertoire selection and technique, Bonnie teaches jazz harmony, uses jazz vocalizes, teaches students how to transpose to the key that best suits their voice, and to write good charts. She also is a great accompanist and likes to teach jazz piano for vocalists.
