Featured Brighton Piano Teachers

Molly M

Instruments:

Molly has been playing piano since elementary school and discovered very early on how much she loves it. She took up the violin later though the piano continues to be her first love. Long before graduating from high school, Molly knew she wanted to study music in college and make music a part of her daily life. Molly discovered the joy of collaborative playing in college and has played with a number of different musicians since then.

Erika S

Instruments:

I am a lifelong musician from a musical family. I majored in biology and music in college, graduating with honors, and then earned a PhD. in cognitive science, the study of how people think, learn, read and remember. I use my understanding of how the brain works to customize music lessons for each student's learning needs. I am a friendly, outgoing person and my students often hear me encouraging them to play or sing LOUDER! I live in beautiful Golden, Colorado with my husband and two teenage-musician kids, two dogs, and four cats. I love to swim, hike, play racquetball, ski, grow organic vegetables in my backyard, read, watch movies, and of course play, sing and dance with other musicians. My home music studio is called the Rainbow Room because there is a rainbow on the ceiling, and I am the director of the Golden Learning Institute for Music, Movement, Education and Research. I always take my instruments out of their cases when they arrive home from their travels.  

Marty M

Instruments:

Although I have taken several college classes in music -- everything from music theory to Garage Band (music software) -- most of my education as a musician, and as a music teacher, has come from real-life musicians!  I've personally grown up with many excellent piano players, drummers and singers, so I've been taught by the best. My first love was piano, and currently I sing and play the drums in my church choir. I look forward to teaching you how to MAKE music, not just know all about it.  My studio is actually the stage/sanctuary area of a little church where they love their music... baby grand piano, large digital keyboard, full drum set, elaborate PA system for their singers. The church services are practically concerts!  

Shannon K

Instruments:

I earned my  Bachelors of Arts degree in music education from Florida Atlantic University and has been teaching and performing ever since.  As a licensed Florida educator I have taught many grade levels from Pre-K through 12th grade.  Outside the public school system, I teach piano and voice students of all ages providing a comprehensive and fun learning environment where children and adults get to explore the wonderful world of music.  In addition, I am a certified Music Together Teacher working in Boulder, Colorado  As a performer I have had the opportunity to sing with the William Paterson University Concert Choir, The William Paterson Chamber Singers, The FAU Women’s Choir, The FAU Honors Choir, The South Florida Master Chorale, and is in the process of auditioning for choirs in the Boulder Area.   I have studied voice with Nan Guptill Crain (William Paterson University), Kristin Jones (Florida Atlantic University) and Dr. Sandra McClain (Florida Atlantic University) and has studied piano with Prof. Ronaldo Garcia (William Paterson University) and attended Piano pedagogy workshops taught by Prof. Judith Burganger (Florida Atlantic University).

Kathryn R

Instruments:

My love of music began at an early age and has continued to grow over the last 20 years. I studied classical voice and flute at the University of Idaho during my secondary education and then went on to pursue my Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance and Bachelor of Arts in Music Theory and Music History from that same institution while maintaining my private teaching studio for voice and flute students. My studies later brought me to Southern California where I obtained I Master of Music in Vocal Performance from CSU Fullerton in 2011 and was a sought after voice, flute, and piano instructor all over Orange County. I have taught all ability levels and ages (5-82!) and love sharing my passion for music with my students! Teaching music has been, and continues to be, one of the most rewarding and educational experiences in my life. In addition, over the last few years, I have performed in many of Southern California's leading choral ensembles in venues including Disney Hall, Honda Center, Segerstrom Center for the Arts, Staples Center and the Hollywood Bowl. I have frequently performed in many genres including classical, jazz, rock, country and liturgical and these performances have taken me around the globe as well as on stage with the likes of Andrea Bocelli and John Williams. Last year I relocated to the beautiful city of Denver where I now sing at Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception, St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, and with St. Martin’s Chamber Choir as well as teach privately and with several music schools in the area.

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 offers piano lessons in the comfort of your home. Provided you have a piano or keyboard to practice, you have everything needed to start learning straight from home! Taking lessons in the home is a great way to save time and money travelling to your piano lessons. There is no difference in the content of the lessons, whether they take place at home or in the studio. Home piano lessons are a particularly good option for younger students. It is a big advance for young students to learn in a familiar, comfortable and supportive environment.
All students start their lessons at different levels of experience and with different aims and goals in mind. For beginner students who are new to the piano, lessons will be devised to give students the fundamentals of good piano playing. Students will learn the correct posture, hand position and fingering techniques for playing scales and chords. Students can develop these skills through practising scales, arpeggios and simple melodies using both hands. For advanced students, they will cover more intricate skills, such as creating runs and fills to add interest and variation to their playing, to develop their repertoire of pieces they can play and to develop their sight reading. Some students may have a specific genre that they are interested in learning, such as jazz piano. Students will learn the musical theory and techniques that underly a host of musical genres. Musika teachers are able to recommend books or specific areas of additional study that they feel will advance each individual student and help to achieve their goals.
For adults who are looking to learn to play the piano, we recommend that they do so with some clear goals in mind. Maybe you want to learn to play some of your favourite songs, pass an exam or write your own music? Whatever the aim, our experienced teachers can help unlock the skills necessary to make those goals a reality. It can take time to develop the techniques and co-ordination required to play the piano to a competent level. However, playing the piano is a great stress reliever, keeps you mentally active and can help with your hearing and fine-motor skills.
Children are recommended to start piano lessons no earlier than age 4 or 5. The attention span and personality of the child are something to consider when thinking of taking lessons. Even if your child has no evident musical inclinations, piano lessons offer a great option for introducing your child to music. During their lessons children will learn how to read music, fundamentals of musicianship and sight reading, music theory techniques, and ear training.
