Featured Chicago Piano Teachers

Lisa Ann W

Instruments:

I first fell in love with the piano when I was 3 years old, but unfortunately was not able to start taking lessons until I was 11.  When I was 16, friends and family started asking me to teach them to play and I developed a love for teaching.  At college I decided to study piano teaching to become the best teacher possible.  I am a member of the Music Teacher's National Association and the Wisconsin Music Teacher's Association.  Competitions are available for any of my students who wish to participate and I have my own non-competitive recitals for my students two times a year.  Students are encouraged to participate in recitals, but not required.  I try to make the recitals as unstressful and enjoyable as possible so that my students will have a good experience peforming and sharing the gift of music with other people. 

Kira T

Instruments:

I believe that teaching should be more about lighting a fire than filling up a vase. If I can motivate you by by making the journey of learning piano an exciting adventure, the rest will follow naturally. It’s a philosophy I’ve been applying for more than 25 years with great results.

Alysia R

Instruments:

I have been playing piano and flute/piccolo for 17 years now and my love for music has only gotten stronger. In the winter of 2009, I graduated from Roosevelt University with a Bachelor of Musical Arts degree in Piano Performance. Also, I am currently working on my Master of Arts degree in Musicology/Music History at the University of Iowa (I still need to complete my thesis). As a musician, I have performed in numerous competitions, recitals, church services, weddings, and even several funerals. I believe that music has strong emotional powers and it has been my pleasure to move people by making music. I enjoy sharing the gift of music with others in performances as well as in lessons.  

Lisa M

Instruments:

I believe everyone at any age can learn to play music and should experience the joys and rewards it brings.  I want music to be easy and fun, so whether a student is interested in leisure studies or is more serious, a beginner or advanced, has natural or limited ability, lessons are tailored to the student's needs. I am thorough in making sure they understand new concepts before moving on - this allows study to be fun and progress to be secure! I have been teaching for 15 years and would not trade it for anything. Music is something no one can take away, but it is meant to be shared. Sharing the love of music is my passion.

Tim K

Instruments:

I love to see others excel in their unique gifts! I began piano as a little boy, but was discouraged from music lessons due to the teaching program. As I became older, I went from recorder, to saxophones, to improvisation, to piano, to singing, to flute, to basic wind instruments, eventually playing/composing/recording/touring with several of the most well-known of bands in the Southeastern Wisconsin area on vocals, saxophones, flute, and piano, as well as studying music at Carroll College. I currently pastor the arts at a local ministry and minister evangelistically in several outlets, especially on vocals/saxophones/piano.

More Information About Piano Lessons

Most students start out with a keyboard or digital piano. We recommend a full size keyboard with 88 weighted keys - weighted keyboards will have a touch response similar to a real piano. However, if purchasing a real piano is in your budget, we think that a real acoustic piano will provide you and the student with the highest level of satisfaction during practice time.
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.
There is no specific teaching method that all Musika teachers adhere to. All students will have lessons customized to their needs and goals as lessons progress. If there is a specific teaching style you are looking for, we will keep that in mind as we make your teacher match. Many teachers will have a few method books that they use for lessons, which will include exercises and techniques for practicing. All lessons will cover aspects of learning notes, proper technique, ear training, and how to read music.
Adults take up piano lessons for a number of different reasons. Some people want to reintroduce themselves to the instrument having once played it in the past, while others are looking for a new hobby or just to learn a new skill for fun! Whatever the reason, there are major benefits to learning the piano during adulthood. Learning piano technique can help retain fine motor skills and co-ordination, it can keep the mind sharp due to the complex thought processes and has shown to be good for preserving your hearing. Learning to play the piano can also be therapeutic, and is a great stress reliever.
Learning to play the piano as a child is a fun, rewarding and vastly beneficial to their overall development. Children can develop their motor-skills, dexterity and coordination through technical piano playing - learning scales, chords and correct fingering. Young students can also develop their concentration, listening skills and ability to master complex thought processes through theory, repertoire and student-teacher feedback. Learning to play the piano can also be character building, such as instilling a hard-working attitude, developing self-discipline and confidence through practice, taking exams, enter competitions or performing recitals.
