About Me

My name is Leigh Johansen, and I've been playing and teaching music for over 50 years. I have B.A. and M.S. degrees in Elementary Education, and an A.A. in Music (Organ). I've been a church organist and choir director since age 13, and have composed over 75 pieces of music for church organ. Additionally, I have many years of classroom music teaching experience K-12 in public and private schools. My years of teaching in the Yamaha Music System have also greatly influenced and contributed to my teaching style. I enjoy teaching children of all ages, as well as teens and adults. I consider my greatest strength to be in the 4-6-year-old age group, as my specialization at the Master's level was in Early Childhood Education. I love kids, and they seem to take well to me, too.

Curriculum

Over the years, I have developed a course for basic music instruction that includes all the important areas of keyboard learning. The comprehensive program covers basic fundamental skills, including exercises, scales, arpeggios, and chords, paving the way for thorough understanding of keyboard harmony. My system correlates notes to colors, providing a fun and easy method of learning. Additionally, students develop a personal repertoire of music to play, from classical and popular sources.
