In This Workshop



How do 'Dancer Counts' work in a 3/4, 4/4 and 6/8 time signature?

You use these all the time, it's about time they made logical sense, right?


What are 'Beats' in a 3/4, 4/4 and 6/8?

When you hear and feel the music and use the counts, these 'beats' are what you're actually utilizing!


Finally, how do I count introductions for those time signatures?

Whether you're marking unset exercises of your own, or syllabus, you've got to know how to count your introductions, right?


Gain confidence in your understanding and ability to count these 3 time signatures!

The #1 technique to help your students pick up exercises quickly and correctly so you don't have to waste time re-marking, is to mark musically! When you can clearly mark musically, knowledgeably and articulately, everyone wins. This workshop gives you the solid footing for that skill.

Stay until the end to learn all about The Official Music Training Course for Ballet Teachers, my signature course, and the transformation that you can experience by taking it!

"While teaching I've tended to be on the quieter side with vocal delivery and I feel like a lot of my marking in the past has sounded very similar regardless of the type of music I was counting with. I have already felt a big boost in confidence through this course that's allowing me to start using my voice much more effectively now that I feel that I understand the music better and can demonstrate that in my classes."

Do you feel confident in your ability to mark musically?

Whether you're feeling stuck using syllabus year round because that's less 'scary' than having to mark unset exercises, OR avoiding unset classes entirely because the marking of exercises in rhythm or tempo is 'not my strong point', you don't have to keep feeling that way!

Join me in this workshop to start your journey towards music clarity, understanding and confidence! You don't have to take years of trial and error to become the ballet teacher you've always wanted to be.


A Note From Lorel (aka.The Barre Pianist)...

Hi, if we haven't met yet, I'm Lorel. I'm a mom (2 boys and a fur), a wife (of a hunky latino) and, a pianist! Specifically, I'm a ballet accompanist! 

I've been in the field for over 20 years and have no intention of stopping anytime soon! I love it! I love how music fills a room and 'paints' it different colours, depending on the qualities.  I love how dancers can be a visual expression of something you cannot see!

When I see dance teachers struggling with marking exercises clearly or dancers having a tough time picking up the rhythm of the exercise because the teacher is unclear when they mark, it makes me sad because I know that it doesn't have to be that way.

After many years of being involved with ballet and music training, I'm thrilled to be filling a void, music training for dance teachers, specifically ballet teachers!
