Primary Chords

Home Page

Welcome to the Joan Blench Piano Studio. I've been teaching piano lessons in Peace River, Alberta for over thirty years. I have always enjoyed composing and arranging music for my students and firmly believe that beginner piano music, especially pre-reading pieces, should be entertaining for the student and also develop a strong foundation which will carry on into more advanced work.  I try to make my studio a warm and friendly place so that lessons are fun for everyone.  

Now that you're here, why note explore the website further?  You'll find information about private and group RMM piano lessons, summer lessons, Ultimate Music Theory lessons as well as a peek into my teacher's resource book, Primary Chords, the pre-reading technique book, Pentascale Magic, and books from the Next Step Pre-Reading Series™, Proud to be Canadian!, It's a Musical Day, International Christmas and Favorite Classical Composers.  You might want to have your credit card handy ... 

Be sure to check out my studio facebook page for regular updates and posts of general interest,  

I am a regular contributor to the Alberta Piano Teachers Association quarterly newsletter. Here is one of the articles I wrote about teaching students with Dyslexia. The article is written in Dyslexie font, one of the many resources I found while doing research on the topic.
