Featured Crest hill Piano Teachers

Jane H

Instruments:

Personally I am interested in many different genres of music (classical voice, jazz voice, classical piano, jazz piano, accompanying), and in college I was able to take many different kinds of lessons to fulfill my needs. As a result, I feel very comfortable teaching others about all sorts of different genres of music. 

Jeff S

Instruments:

Jeff  has emerged as a versatile and powerful musical force. His talents as an interpreter of new, old and diverse styles have made him uniquely suited to promoting new music, transcriptions and jazz improvisation during an exciting period for the saxophone. Some of Jeff’s most recent efforts in chamber music have proven fruitful. His saxophone quartet, the Estrella Consort recently returned from a nine-day tour of Ecuador and has been invited to perform in the prestigious Fischoff International Chamber Music Competition.  His trio, Trikaya, was awarded the 2012 Music Teachers of North America’s second prize for woodwind chamber music. Jeff played lead alto saxophone in the Arizona State University Concert Jazz Band and anchored the horn section of The JJ's, one of Phoenix's most popular bands. His abilities as a jazz artist and as a woodwind specialist earned him a position with the 2011 touring production of Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story.  He also conducted the Scottsdale Musical Theater Company production of Guys and Dolls. An avid proponent of New Music, Jeff has commissioned original scores from composers in Arizona, California, New York, Washington and China. He has premiered many new works for saxophone including his own soprano saxophone transcriptions of César Franck’s A Maj Violin Sonata and Olivier Messian’s Fantasy for Violin and Piano. The soon-to-be-published Franck transcription is already seeing use within the saxophone community.  

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.

Daniel B

Instruments:

I currently work as a teacher, singer, actor, and organist in Chicago. I'm teaching piano and electronic music courses full-time at Kenwood Academy, a CPS High School. I graduated from the Chicago College of Performing Arts with degrees in music education and vocal performance.  Apart from my teaching, I stay active as a performer in the Chicago music scene. I have completed vocal training programs with groups like Chicago Opera Theater and the College Light Opera Company (CLOC). I regularly appear in operas and store front theater productions. As a pianist/organist, I regularly play for church services and rehearse choirs. I'm particularly devoted to composing, producing and performing new art music.  I love to read, ride my bike, and teach new student-musicians!   

Ruth K

Instruments:

I am an experienced teacher who loves working with students and sharing my love of music with them.  Over the past three decades I have taught in the schools, for a performing arts school, through studios, eventually owning my own studio, and locally concertized as both a soloist and an ensemble performer.  Groups and students under my direction have won numerous awards and honors and concertized in many venues.  I am blessed to have many of my former students working as professionals in the music industry now and still keep in touch with them and their families.

More Information About Piano Lessons

As students will need to practice the content taught during their lessons, they will need to invest in a digital piano or a keyboard. There are a number of different keyboards on the market, however we suggests looking to buy one with 61 keys or more. Keyboards with weighted action keys are most like that of a real piano, and are recommended. Keyboards are often a cheaper and more convenient option that digital pianos or a real piano, as they can be transported around and played using headphones. That said, if buying an acoustic piano is within your budget, it will provide the most satisfying learning experience.
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.
Students at different levels of their piano playing will require different aspects of piano playing to be covered during their lessons. Beginners will start out learning the basics, intermediates will be applying the foundations to more complex compositions and advanced players will want to hone a few specific skills or styles. The basic things that beginner students will learn are things such as; learning the notes of the piano, posture and playing technique, scales and chords. At this level, students will learn simple scales and chords, such as major and minor chords, and start to put some of the basic techniques into practice via simple songs. Intermediate players will work on more exotic chords and playing such as diminished chords, 7th chords and applying these things to more challenging compositions. Advanced players can improve sight reading, improvisational abilities or work on genre specific techniques, such as Jazz or Blues. Throughout, students can develop their musical ear, reading and theory.
In many ways adult learns have an advantage over young students. Adults have better self-discipline with regards to practice, a more patient and have higher levels of concentration. This allows them to develop the basic skills at a reasonably quick rate. Learning the piano is also a great way of remaining mental active during adulthood, and helps students to improve their hand-eye co-ordination and develop a critical ear. Learning to play the piano in adulthood can be beneficial health-wise, is a great way of harnessing creativity and stimulating the brain as can be immensely satisfying when achieving set goals.
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!
