Featured Elk grove Piano Teachers

Ann W

Instruments:

I began singing, playing guitar and ukelele, and playing harmonica in grades K-12, then finally began studying music formally as a re-entry college student in 1997 at Humboldt State University.  I studied flute and voice there as electives while completing my first BA in English Education and minor in Dance.  At Humboldt, I played flute in the Intermediate Orchestra and sang in Humboldt Chorale from 1998-2001, studying flute under Ginny Ryder.  Transferring to CSU, Sacramento in 2001 to complete my MA in English, I began performing in the CSU, Sacramento Concert Band, and later, also performed in the CSU, Sacramento Symphonic Wind Ensemble.  Completing the English MA in 2005, I simultaneously entered the Music Program at CSU, Sacramento as a Second BA candidate in Flute.  I studied there under Laurel Zucker, graduating in 2010 with honors level grades (GPA 3.8 on a 4 point scale). My additional flute teachers at CSU, Sacramento were Ronda Winter, Deana Ehlen, Honey Sharp, Alicia Patrice, and Dr. James Chopyak (shakuhachi). I love teaching and tutoring, especially one-on-one, and am comfortable working with diverse ages and types of people. People say I am kind, sensitive, and patient as a teacher and tutor.  I am eager to teach flute, and look forward to working with you!

I focus on building a solid technical foundation through various technical studies and etudes. I also encourage students to attend concerts, develop basic theory, and to seek/participate in other physical activities such as dance, sports, which would help with developing coordination and strength. Materials:Students are expected to bring all necessary materials to lessons, including their instrument, shoulder rest, rosin, cleaning cloth, music, a notebook, and a pencil.Violins can be rented and necessary materials can be purchased locally at:Watermelon Music Store207 E StDavis, CA(530) 758-4010Students are encouraged to participate in youth orchestra, chamber music, and summer music programs and festivals.

More Information About Piano Lessons

Modern day keyboards have a wide ranges of functions that make them perfect for learning to play the piano. Many keyboards have in-built lessons and songs of varying difficulties to play along to, which can act as a great supplement to lessons. Keyboards also come with a range of different instrument sounds and FX, such as percussive sounds, string sounds, synthesizer-type sounds and brass and horn sections, which can be fun to play with. They also usually have a record function and can be synchronised to a personal computer, which is great for hearing back your progress or writing your own music!
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.
The content of each lesson is determined by the ability and experience level of each individual student. For beginner students who are new to the piano, lessons will be devised to give students the fundamentals of good piano playing. Students will learn the correct posture, hand position and fingering techniques for playing scales and chords. 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, they develop their sight reading, music theory - such as time signatures - and applying these skills to more complex compositions. Advanced players may want to study a particular genre or composer. Pianists who enjoy Classical music may like to study the compositions of Bach or Mozart, or maybe develop their Jazz or Blues playing. Teachers can also help prepare students for exam, auditions, performances or recitals.
Many older students are fulfilling a long standing ambition by taking piano lessons. Some students may have had lessons when they were younger and want to re-learn and others are simply looking for a new hobby. Whatever the aim or reason, there are many benefits to piano lessons for older students. Learning the piano can keep you mentally active, help maintain dexterity, improve your hearing and stimulate the brain in a creative way. Older students can develop basic technique and music theory quite quickly, as their concentration, thinking skills and self-discipline are more advanced than that of children.
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.
