Featured Detroit Piano Teachers

Lisa H

Instruments:

I have been a music educator for over 20 years. I was a middle school band director for 13 years, but left the field when I moved to North Carolina. I have recently moved back to Michigan and I'm looking to build my private lesson studio back up again.  I graduated from Western Michigan University in 1995 and finished my Masters degree in 2011. 

Stephanie R

Instruments:

I'e been playing since I've been a young child and have never been able to see myself do anything else. I am currently playing with the Dearborn Symphony Orchestra as well as the Michigan Philharmonic Symphony. I aspire to play with the Michigan Opera Theater soon and become a studio musician. I have lots of background playing in concerts outside of classical music such as rock, folk, and pop and love teaching such styles. Music is not only an important tool to develop our brains but also a door to open our hearts to the beauty of the simplicity of life.  

Ellen P

Instruments:

I have always had an eclectic love for all things music, and enthusiastically share it with anyone who will have me!   There was a piano in my house growing up and I couldn't stay away.  In school, I studied oboe and bassoon.  Eventually I just explored any instrument that caught my interest- guitar, trumpet, ocarinas, panflutes, etc.  I spent a lot of time doing musical theatre, and studied voice for a time as well. Performing was fun, but I found that teaching others is by far the most rewarding.  Playing music is the most relaxing, invigorating, inspiring, and stress-relieving activity I have ever known, and I believe everyone should have that in their life.  My sheet music library boasts classical music, blues, jazz, ragtime, broadway showtunes, pop, rock, TV, movie, video game soundtracks, and more!

Sopita S

Instruments:

Over ten years of teaching experience

Denielle B

Instruments:

I am an enthusiastic and passionate person and it my goal to pass this love of music on to my students! I graduated from Bowling Green State Univeristy in OH, where I studied advanced repertoire and technique on the violin, organ and piano.  I have over 10 years of experience as both a private music instructor and performer and I have found that teaching is where my true passion lies!  I currently perform with the Dearborn and Adrian Symphonies, as well as Michigan Philharmonic out of Plymouth, MI. I have studied the piano since I was 5, Violin since age 12, and organ since 15 and I can honestly say I love each of these instruments equally :-)

More Information About Piano Lessons

For students just starting out, a keyboard or digital piano is a great entry level alternative to a real acoustic piano. We suggest trying to buy a keyboard with 88 keys. Keyboards with a weighted hammer action are recommended as their touch response and general feel will be most similar to that of an acoustic piano. If it is at all possible, consider buying an acoustic piano - upright pianos are less space consuming - as this will provide students with a greater level of satisfaction during their practice time. Popular keyboard brands include Yamaha, Casio and Roland.
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.
Musika piano lessons can be tailored to suit students of all abilities, whether they are beginners, intermediates or advanced level players. For beginners, the basics will be taught. This will include learning the correct posture, hand position and fingering technique. It will include learning the notes and scales of the piano, learning basic chords and chord progressions, developing the musical ear and learning to apply these things to simple songs. Intermediate players can start to increase their playing speed in order to perform runs, fills and solos, they can broaden their chord playing to things like augmented chords, diminished chords, slash chords and so on... They can work on their sight reading, music theory - such as learning different time signatures - and applying these skills to more complex songs. For advanced players, they will be adding an edge to their playing, such as improvisational skills, repertoire and genre-specific work, like learning Jazz or Romantic piano.
"We have many adult students taking lessons. Whether you have studied music as a child, or are wanting to learn a new skill, music lessons are a great avenue to go with! Not only do they keep you young and energized, but our teachers are also able to be ""on your level"" and instruct you in a way you can understand."
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.
