Instruments:

Personally and as a "Music Teacher" I believe, the intricacies of musical expression are not so complex as to when an intimate relationship is entered into by the aspiring artist and his/her dreams of music. For then, a marvelous world in which the artist lives, sings, plays and paints his/her music in, presents itself as a limitless wonder. Born in South Bend Indiana at the age of eight I became very interested in music used in our lively church services. One day, while curiously fidgeting around with the piano, I figured out how to play a nice rhythmic tune including the changes needed to play and sing along with it. Finally, culminating the tune to a nice resolve pleasant to the ear, I was very excited. While playing this tune in church before service, one of the Deacons exclaimed, "Hey stop playing that "Boogey Woogey" in here." I was barely nine at the time and it was a few years later that I realized I had by ear figured out the I, IV and V (V7) chords to the "Blues" and "Boogey Woogey." This began my musical journey into a world of beauty and expression that has lasted me a life time. The many different sounds that each instrument produces, as well as the most natural instrument the voice, were stunningly amazing to me. The "love affair" continues. Growing up in an environment where gospel music was the music of choice by adults, my growth and exposure to other styles was fueled solely by my curiosity. Starting out with only the instruments available to me in church, in third grade I was presented with the Tonette.  Progressing to the Trumpet, I was exposed to written music and was taught to read. I have performed in theatres, orchestras, marching bands, jazz bands, tent revivals, bars and lounges. During this time, I developed my own personal style of singing, playing and performing. At fifteen, I discovered the guitar. "Wow!" Now here was an instrument I could play and sing with at the same time.  After hearing that guitar line on "Stevie Wonder's" "Very Superstitious" (1973)... I had to play that instrument.  Self-taught with a great ear, I soaked up everything I could from recordings and other musicians.  I played in Blues, gospel, country, soul and rock bands.  I just played everywhere with everyone I could. At 17, I started teaching my family and friends how to play different instruments. I had entered the realm of becoming a teacher. I recorded my first album at 18 with a Gospel group called the "Children of Truth" started by Fred Huff (vocalist/drummer) and I.   As a group we performed on a local morning Television show, outside venues, churches and prisons.  The album was a milestone for me. It brought it all into perspective. I was hooked on music! After 15 exciting years of touring with different groups I gained experience and knowledge, both good and bad about the "Music Industry." Experiences like writing and composing two top 20 hit songs, which my name is not associated with.  Experiences like these are enough to ruin anyone’s aspirations.  To trust or to copyright should never be the question!  Copyright!  The "school of hard knocks" i.e., the streets lends itself to experiences, so valuable, though they try, they cannot teach them in class rooms.  They can lecture about it, but that's not experiencing it.  I wouldn't trade my experiences for a record deal.  Why?  Without understanding sustainability is lost. The love of music is my motivation and satisfaction in life.

Instruments:

I have a great breadth and depth of experience with instrumental music education. Clarinet has been my primary performance instrument, but I have found over the years that the techniques that I use to teach clarinet are easily and successfully transferable to the other instruments that I teach. Besides the clarinet, I also teach saxophone, guitar, violin and piano throughout the Colorado Springs area.

More Information About Piano Lessons

We recommend that students get either a full size piano, or a weighted keyboard for their lessons. It is very important to set up a practice schedule every day. You can purchase a basic keyboard at a local music store or an electronic store. Some students may also wish to rent a piano if they do not wish to invest in buying one right away. Digital keyboards offer a good choice for the beginning student because they are portable and easily stored in your home. Keyboards will start at 65 keys at the smallest amount and increase to a full size keyboard of 88 keys. The most common brands of keyboard are Casio, Yamaha, and Korg.
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.
Piano lessons are usually structured around a series of method books which are recommended by the teacher, and can be purchased at a local music store or online. Lessons for a beginner usually start with familiarizing the student with the piano as well as beginner level technique. This will include learning the notes on the piano, and learning basic scales, like major and minor scales. Beginners will start by learning how to play scales using the correct finger techniques with both bands until they develop their speed and co-ordination. Eventually students will start off by playing simple melodies - often nursery rhymes - that utilize and put the fingering techniques into practice. Students will also learn the various types of chord, from simple major and minor chords, through to 7th chords, slash chords and diminished chords. Students will also develop their sight reading and music theory knowledge throughout their lessons.
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 is a great first instrument for children who have never studied music before. Our instructors specialize in teaching younger children, and will develop an individual lesson plan for your child. The youngest age that we recommend starting piano lessons is age 4. The instructor will be able to teach your child to read music, beginning music theory and musician skills, and how to develop a love for playing the instrument.
