I love teaching beginning and intermediate students in piano and woodwinds. I graduated early from Hiram College in 1993 with a degree in Instrumental Music Education. I have been proudly teaching general and instrumental music in the Cleveland Public Schools for the last seventeen years. I perform weekly as my church's organist and keyboardist for the Praise and Worship Team. I am currently attending Clevelans State to finish my Master's Degree in Instrumental Music Education.

Angelique P

Instruments:

Having grown up in a musical household where my mother, aunt, and uncle who studied at Julliard were all piano teachers, music has been my life from an early age on. I had daily lessons with my mother and aunt and soon began competing and enjoying performing here in the States and abroad, as well as helping my teachers teach while back at home. I had the wonderful opportunity to study with Andrius Kuprecicius while earning my degree at Cleveland State University. The knowledge my teachers imparted to me enables me to teach others the skills to perfect and achieve their own goals as well easily in music. I have taught  at the Cleveland Music Settlement, Bedford Music Center, Summit Music Studios, and have and continue to teach privately.

More Information About Piano Lessons

Provided you do not have the space or budget to purchase an acoustic piano, such as an upright or baby grand, then a keyboard is a perfectly acceptable alternative. Keyboards with a weighted hammer action are the best option, as the key touch sensitivity is comparable to that of an acoustic piano. As a rule, more keys are better - at least 61 key pianos are advised. The most popular brands of keyboard are Casio, Roland and Yamaha and can be purchased from most musical instrument retailers. Keyboards offer great convenient due to their price, portability and headphones option.
In home lessons are what 90% of our students request. Not only does this provide a convenient means to study music, but we also notice no difference in the quality of lessons done in home or in studio. They are typically structured the same. The main benefit of in-home lessons is the reduction in travel time to another location, and additionaly the student may be able to focus better in your own home since they are familiar with it. Piano lessons in the home offer a practical choice for your family for learning the skill of playing a musical instrument.
There are several different, but vey important elements to becoming a good piano player. It takes time to master the basic skills that will set you on your way to excellence. For beginners, the lessons will focus on elementary piano knowledge and technique, such as learning all the notes of the piano, hand and finger techniques for playing, learning scales and chords, as well as some music theory; reading sheet music, chord charts etc... These basic skills can then be applied to simple songs. Students with these foundations in place can expect to cover things like, diminished chords and other chord types, sight reading, playing more challenging compositions and learning the 7 piano modes - Ionian, Dorian, Phrygian, Lydian, Mixolydian, Aeolian and Locrian mode. Lessons for advanced students might cover topics such as improvisation, glissando, or the study of a specific genre of playing or composer, such as Jazz piano or Johann Sebastian Bach.
"We have many adult students taking lessons. Whether you have studied music as a child, or are wanting to learn a new skill, music lessons are a great avenue to go with! Not only do they keep you young and energized, but our teachers are also able to be ""on your level"" and instruct you in a way you can understand."
Piano is a great first instrument for children who have never studied music before. Our instructors specialize in teaching younger children, and will develop an individual lesson plan for your child. The youngest age that we recommend starting piano lessons is age 4. The instructor will be able to teach your child to read music, beginning music theory and musician skills, and how to develop a love for playing the instrument.
