Featured Downey Piano Teachers

Dennis Wayne H

Instruments:

Dennis H. holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Moody Bible Institute of Chicago in Bible and Theology and has studied at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside toward a certificate of Piano Pedagogy and Literature. He first studied piano with Mrs. Ethel Cliff Stried, a Zion Conservatory of Music graduate, from 1979 to 1989. At Bethel College he studied under Gordon Howell (1989-1990).  At Moody he studied under Gary Rownd (1992).

Joshua P

Instruments:

I'm a passionate and motivated instructor who loves working with students and sharing my love of performance. In 2011, I graduated from the University of Wisconsin River Falls with a Bachelor of Science in Liberal Arts/Performance. Performing all over the world has been one of the greater experiences of my life as a musician, and I have had the opportunity to Conduct the World Vision Children's Choir in S. Korea and be a featured Tenor soloist in the summer music festival "Orvieto Musica" in Orvieto, Italy. 

Krisann D

Instruments:

I thoroughly enjoy creating fun, positive learning experiences with my students. My goal is to help each student build a musical foundation, explore musical styles he/she enjoys, and see every individual achieve musical capability. During my junior and high school years, I studied under a private undergraduate music professor. Along with his instruction, I explored many styles of music through my involvement with our private school choir. During high school, I had the opportunity to lead our student musicians--arranging and directing the music for our school choir concerts. Since 1988, I have been the music director for our local church congregation, which has been a rewarding and challenging experience.

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. 

Nena M

Instruments:

In 2011, I graduated from University of Nis, Serbia with a Bachelor's degree in General Music Pedagogy. I'm a very patient and motivated instructor who loves working with students.

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.
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.
Our teachers create a customized lesson plan for every student. Topics covered during Musika's piano lessons may include, but are not limited to: learning the notes of the piano, how to read music and play piano chord charts, how to play piano by ear, music theory, musicianship skills, and most importantly, how to have fun playing the piano!
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.
