Featured Bethel park Piano Teachers

Cara R

Instruments:

My name is Cara and I am a  grad from Grove City College. Music is my life: i teach & i also perform so I know what it takes to prepare for performing and auditioning. I hold 2 recitals per year for my students: summer & Christmas. Recitals give a great opportunity to get up in front of people, which is definitely scary at first. It gives students a reason to feel very proud of themselves.

Emily L

Instruments:

I am a full-time pedagogue/performer with seven years' experience teaching private lessons in voice and piano to a range of ages and levels of students. Although the majority of my students are young adults, I have worked successfully with children, teenagers, and adult students (twenties to senior citizens) of both genders; I tailor my approach specifically to the goals and interests of each student. No two people are alike, no two people learn the same way.

Adrienne S

Instruments:

I went to college for music because I love singing.  As a teacher I want to provide my students with the same opportunity to play or perform on their instrument and get that same sense of joy and fulfillment that I do with my voice.  I have traveled on national and European choir tours, performed in musicals and operas, and performed in small groups and individually.  Some of those opportunities would not have been possible for me with out music teachers and private voice teachers who invested in my musical growth and ambition.  I therefore want to invest my knowledge and passion for music into students to help them achieve goals or dreams of their own.

LaKedria L

Instruments:

 I am a very dedicated teacher interested in sharing my love of music with others.  I graduated from Marshall University in 2011 with a Master of Art's degree in Vocal Performance, I have a BA in Music; Voice and Choral Music Education from West Lberty University 2009 and I am certified in Adult Learning and Education ( Capella University 2013).   With extensive experience as a soloist, chorister, and teacher;  I have been featured as a soloist for many works including   Vivaldi's Gloria, Alan Hovhaness’ Glory to God, Handel's Messiah,  Theodore Dubois Seven Last Words of Christ, and several world premiers by rising composers including Evan Mack’s Dream of Freedom and John Sherwood’s Introduction to a Romanian musical. I have given several workshops in classrooms on African Dancing and Drumming and presented lectures on opera, singing in various genres, and life as music major. I serve  as an adjudicator for WV region VI solo and ensemble festivals and maintain professional memberships in National Association of Teachers of singing ( NATS),  National association for the study and performance of African American Music, (NSPAAM) National association for music education (NAfME), and American Choral directors association ( ACDA).     

Rachael S

Instruments:

I am a devoted music teacher and passionate performer, who likes to inspire my students to love making music. I perform with orchestras and chamber groups all over the Pennsylvania/Ohio area including the West Virginia Symphony orchestra; contemporary ensemble, Alia Music Pittsburgh; and Trillium Ensemble, a flute, clarient, and piano trio I co-founded. I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in 2006 having studied with Thomas Thompson of the Pittsburgh Symphony.

More Information About Piano Lessons

The best instrument to get would be an upright or baby grand piano. However, if your finances are limited we suggest looking into a digital keyboard. Go with the best quality keyboard that you can afford. We suggest a keyboard with weighted keys so that there is additional resistance on the keys than a toy piano. Most digital keyboards start at 65 keys, and go up to a full size 88 keys. You have to consider which keyboard would fit best in your home and your budget. A beginning student should get the keyboard before or immediately after beginning lessons, so that they may begin practicing as soon as the lessons commence.
Musika deals primarily with home lessons for students. The location is the only difference between our in-home lessons and our studio lessons. As they do not have to travel to their lessons, home piano lessons can be highly convenient for those parents and students with a busy schedule - students will need a keyboard to practice on, however. For younger students in particular, having piano lessons in the comfort of their own home can be of great benefit. They will feel more safe and relaxed in familiar surroundings, allowing them to focus on learning and enjoying playing the piano.
The content of each lesson is determined by the ability and experience level of each individual student. For students just starting off, the foundations of piano playing will start to be laid. This will include learning to read music and chord charts, learning their way around the piano and learning simple scales and chords. Students can put these new skills to use through simple, entry level compositions. For intermediate pianists, they will develop some of the finer arts to piano playing, such as modulation, developing speed, and combining a wider array of chords, such as augmented and slash chords. They will also get to work on their sight reading and playing more challenging songs. Advanced students may wish to work on their improvisational skills, develop their repertoire or study a specific genre or style of playing, such as Jazz, Baroque, or Blues. Regardless, all students will experience the joys of piano playing.
In many ways adult learns have an advantage over young students. Adults have better self-discipline with regards to practice, a more patient and have higher levels of concentration. This allows them to develop the basic skills at a reasonably quick rate. Learning the piano is also a great way of remaining mental active during adulthood, and helps students to improve their hand-eye co-ordination and develop a critical ear. Learning to play the piano in adulthood can be beneficial health-wise, is a great way of harnessing creativity and stimulating the brain as can be immensely satisfying when achieving set goals.
Piano lessons for children will focus on learning the fundamentals of the technique of the instrument and learning to read music and rhythm. We suggest beginning piano lessons no earlier than age 4, due to the attention span of the child, as well as the strength they have in their hands for playing. Piano Lessons will offer an excellent introduction to learning music for a child. Music theory and musicianship skills will also be taught during the lessons. Piano lessons are a great choice for introducing the art of music to your child!
