Johanna N

Instruments:

I am an enthusiastic music teacher who is dedicated to helping her students grow. I am continuously learning about the music field and am currently working on my dissertation on music and cognition. I have taught music lessons for over 10 years and love it more every day.  I teach mainly from my church because it is a comfortable and safe atmosphere and it is easy for everyone to find. You will find that lessons are fun and focused on the style you want to learn. I can teach classical, pop, blues, jazz and rock. I can also teach some country and harder rock sounds as well. The main focus is learning technique and then adding in the style you enjoy. 

Rachel B

Instruments:

Music and children are my two greatest passions and I love teaching them both! My musical training began at the age of 9 with piano lessons, and expanded in college to include percussion lessons and performances in several recitals, shows, and concerts. In 2007 I graduated with a Bachelor of Music in Education. In 2013 I began my own home business, offering music classes for babies to preschoolers and private piano lessons for beginner and intermediate players.  As a wife and a mother of 2 young boys I know first hand how much music can influence a child's development and it's my pleasure to be able to teach music to children.

Teresa W

Instruments:

I am a highly motivated, hard-working, and outgoing individual.  I love people and believe that teaching music lessons is one the best ways to connect with students of all ages and develop a relationship with them.  I started learning piano in Kindergarten, began Saxophone in my 5th grade Band, and started tutoring other band students in 6th Grade.  In 7th Grade I earned scholarship to attend Illinois Summer Youth Music Camp at the University of Illinois.  The excellent education that I received at ISYM, proved to be a critical influence on my desire to succeed musically and academically.  I earned 14 scholarships for college and returned to The University of Illinois where I received my Bachelors in Music Education with Instrumental Specialization and became certified to teach Band, Choir, and Orchestra for Grades K-12.  Since then have taught students and groups of students ranging in age from 2 1/2 to 89.

More Information About Piano Lessons

We recommend that students get either a full size piano, or an 88-key, weighted hammer action keyboard for their lessons and practice. A real acoustic piano will provide the most satisfying learning experience, however, due to the costs and size of the instrument, a keyboard is often the more convenient option. Weighted keys will respond most like those of an acoustic piano, and keyboards have the added bonus of being portable and compatible with headphones. The most popular brands of keyboard or digital piano are Yamaha, Casio, Korg and Roland.
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.
At Musika, we highly recommend that students looking to learn to play the piano do so with a clear goal in mind. Whether your goal is to learn to play your favourite tunes, reacquaint yourself with the piano, or just to play for fun, our experienced teachers can help you make those goals a reality. Learning, developing and improving technique, co-ordination and theory can actually be quicker during adulthood as the complex thought processes and theory are easier to understand. Adults can also help maintain their fine-motor skills, concentration and listening skills into later life.
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!
