Featured Cary Piano Teachers

Matthew S

Instruments:

I'm a fun, energetic teacher who enjoys helping students find their inner passion for music. In 2012, I graduated from UNC - Chapel Hill with a Bachelor of Arts in Music and Mathematics. While studying composition under Dr. Allen Anderson, I premiered and recorded pieces for brass trio, wind quintet, percussion ensemble, and soprano with piano accompaniment. In college, I also had the opportunity to tour with the UNC Men's Glee Club across the country as a soloist. Working with all kinds of musicians - performers, conductors, composers, teachers - has helped me understand what a collaborative and rewarding experience making music can be.

Robert G

Instruments:

I'm a patient and caring individual who believes in giving back to the community because the community has given me so much. I enjoy playing and teaching music more than anything. I've had the opportunity of learning from many great teachers in the state of North Carolina, and have had the privilege of being a part of groups such as the ECU Wind Ensemble, ECU Marching Pirates, ECU Trumpet Ensemble and several other quality groups.  

Matthew D

Instruments:

I have been an enthusiastic musician since the time I began to sing at age 3. At 8 I began learning the piano and at 11 I began learning guitar.  I graduated from Appalachian State University with a Bachelors Degree in writing, but my minor was in Music Performance. Inititally, I had planned to major in music but after some career changing decisitions I switched. I continued however, to continue taking music courses through the school. I also took many performance opportunities in the area through the school of music, through a student led A-Cappella group named Higher Ground (which I directed from 2010 to 2011), and through my own private gigging playing guitar and piano. I currently live in the Raleigh area and am employed part time as the Worship Music Director at Hope Presbyterian Church. I have been teaching privately since my time studying at Appalachian State, but I have just recently joined on with Musika. I offer instruction in guitar up to an advanced level, and I also offer instruction in voice, piano, and mandolin to an intermediate level.

Gina O

Instruments:

I began taking violin and piano around the age of 9 years.  I continued studying through private lessons. Later I spent 3 1/2 years at the Hartt School of Music Community Division where I continued the study of the violin and played in several musical groups including an early music ensemble and string quartets. I was an active soloist and member of my church orchestra in Connecticut and played violin as concertmaster in the Colchester Civic Orchestra for the 2011-2012 season. I moved to Raleigh in 2012 and currently play violin with the Chapel Hill Philharmonia. I also play in my church orchestra and string quartet. I am an active member of the Raleigh music community, playing. for example, in the Meredith College graduation ceremony and in pit orchestra. I play piano as accompanist for my students in concerts, recitals, and fine arts competitions.

Valentina P

Instruments:

I am a piano teacher with over 40 years of experience. I greatly enjoy teaching and sharing with students the wonderful gift of music. I graduated with a Masters of Arts in Piano Performance and Pedagogy from the Moldavian State Conservatory in 1980, although my teaching career began a decade earlier. From the very first lesson I was privileged to teach, I knew I wanted to teach piano for the rest of my life. I also love performing, and have performed as a collaborative pianist in secular as well as in sacred settings, as well as in ensembles and as a vocal accompanist.

More Information About Piano Lessons

If purchasing an acoustic piano is not an option, we recommend that students look to buy a keyboard or digital piano for their lessons and practice. When buying a keyboard or digital piano, look to purchase one with 61 or more keys, as well as one with weighted hammer action. Having more keys, as well as weighted keys will most resemble the responsiveness and feel of an acoustic piano. Typically, keyboards are a cheaper option, they take up less space, are portable and can be played with headphones. Some of the most popular brands of keyboard or digital piano are Yamaha, Roland and Casio.
Music lessons in your home offer a convenient option to learning music! Most of our students request in home lessons for this reason. As long as you have a piano or keyboard in your home, then you should be all set to start your lessons! Children who have never played an instrument before may feel more comfortable studying in their own home, as it may be less intimidating than going somewhere else. In home lessons decrease the time and gas money spent traveling to a different location.
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.
Learning a new musical skill as an adult is a great way to keep your brain fresh! We have many adult students actively taking lessons with us, and this actually represents around 50% of our student base. Our instructors will offer an individually tailored lesson plan to the needs of an adult student. You will learn the technique of the instrument, specific repetoire suited to your skill level, and learn how to read music and sight read.
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.
