Featured Bridgewater Piano Teachers

Malcolm (Javier) S

Instruments:

Javi is a young, aspiring artist and visionary. Originally hailing from Minneapolis, MN, he grew up surrounded by strong artistic support. Not only was he influenced by his parents, who were jazz musicians, but also he was influenced by his own generation. His music is an eclectic blend of genres including jazz, hip hop, rock, R&B and others. Javi started playing piano at the age of 5, and was classically trained until he discovered his love of jazz music. In high school, he was a prominent player on the Twin Cities music scene and started his production career making tracks for Twin Cities hip hop artists. He won the Schubert Club Jazz Piano Scholarship Competition two years in a row (’06, ’07). He took the piano chair in the Minnesota Youth Jazz Band (’05-’07) and the Dakota Combo (’07 with Bobby Watson). In 2007, Javier was selected by the great Dave Brubeck and a panel of judges, in an international search, to be a part of the Brubeck Institute Fellowship program in California. Since then he has played at venues all across the nation and studied with some of the best instrumentalists in the world. The Brubeck Institute Jazz Quintet (’08-’09) won Best College Group Of the Year in DownBeat Magazine two years in a row (2009 and 2010). Javi received his bachelor’s degree in piano performance in late 2011 at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in NYC. Not only is Javi a virtuosic pianist, but also a producer, composer, arranger and educator as well.

Nicole G

Instruments:

Welcome! Thank you for visiting my page!  I'm Nicole, a professional opera singer and passionate, dedicated voice teacher who loves to help students find their true voices and develop fine artistry in all types of musical genres. Originally from New York City. I grew up in Hillsborough, New Jersey, and graduated from Ithaca College with a Bachelor of Music Degree in Vocal Performance. I recently completed a professional certificate program - the Artist Diploma in Early Music (Baroque Opera and Chamber Music) - at Cornish College of the Arts here in Seattle, WA.  I have been lucky to perform across the US, in Italy and in Germany. Recent hilights include my Seattle debuts performing as Venus in John Blow’s "Venus and Adonis" with Cornish Opera Theater and in concert through Seattle Early Music Guild. I will be joining the cast of Amherst Early Music Festival's opera production of Purcell's The Fairy Queen in July 2013. I've had the amazing opportunity to perform in ensemble behind Kristin Chenoweth at the MET Opera, and in choral ensembles in New York at Alice Tully Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, Symphony Space, Carnegie Hall, with the NYC Ballet at the NY State Theater, and behind Brian Stokes Mitchell for a recent Actor's Equity Gala. As a Baroque specialist, I am member of Early Music America, and as a published lyricist, I am a member of ASCAP (the American Society for Composers, Authors, and Publishers). 

Gina P

I teach all levels: whether you just want to try something new or are even preparing a recital, I would love to make music with you.  My studio is at Manhattan School of Music, so I have full access to their music library! 

Carlos M

Instruments:

As an instructor and professional musician, I teach and motivate my students to develop their skills and expand their musicanship. I graduated from Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College, NYC, with a Master of Music. I'm very fortunate to have the opportunity to play with many extraordinary musicians here in New York City and around the world. I'm passionate about music and I love to teach students how to focus their passion for music into a finely honed technique.  

Kelsey R

Instruments:

I recently graduated with honors from Westminster Choir College where I completed degrees in both Music Education and Music Theory and Composition. I am currently working as a music teacher for the West Windsor Plainsboro Regional School District and building my career as a performer. So far I have sung multiple times at top performance venues like Carnegie Hall, the Kimmel Center, and Lincoln Center.

More Information About Piano Lessons

Most students start out by learning to play on a keyboard or digital piano. The most reputable keyboards brands are Yamaha, Roland and Casio, and can be purchased from most good music instrument retailers. Students should look to buy a keyboard with 88 weighted keys, as this will most resemble the playability of a real piano. At a minimum, 61 keys will suffice for most songs and practice. Keyboards are portable and can be played with headphones, making them highly convenient for practice. That said, if it is within you means to buy an acoustic piano, it will provide the best learning experience.
One-on-one piano lessons straight from the comfort of your own home is a great way to learn to play the piano. 90% of our students choose to take lessons from home, mostly due to the convenience of not having to make travel arrangements both to and from their lessons. This is great for parents and students with busy schedules. The content of home lessons is exactly the same as studio lessons, however, you will need to have a keyboard or piano at your home. Home lessons provide the best learning environment, as it is a comfortable, familiar surrounding for students to learn in.
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.
We offer piano lessons for students of all ages, including adults. Whether you are a complete beginner on the instrument, or you have not played the piano in many years, our knowledgable instructors can definitely assist you in your journey of developing your musical skills.
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.
