Featured Freeport Piano Teachers

LaMarcus M

Instruments:

Hailed as “a voice to remember” while performing at The Rockwall Music Festival, I've been an active young artist, appearing in a number of leading and supporting operatic roles such as Palemon in Thais, Dr. Falke in Die Fledermaus, Raimondo in Lucia di Lammermoor, Les Comtes Des Grieux in Manon Lescaut, Prince Yamadori in Madama Butterfly, Il Commendatore in Don Giovanni, Dancaire in Carmen, and Simone & Marco in Gianni Schicchi.  I made my musical theatre debut as The Beast in Beauty and the Beast in 2011. Most recently I made my Kennedy Center Center debut singing the leading role of USMC Philip in the new Opera “Fallujah” by Tobin Stokes & Heather Raffo. “In the opera “Fallujah” LaMarcus’s sensitive and vulnerable portrayal is riveting. His vocal command will have you hanging onto every note”- DCMTA     Adding to my numerous appearances, I've performed a broad array of oratorio and sacred works including Kodaly’s Te Deum, Malcom Archer’s Requiem, Handel’s Messiah, Haydn’s Missa Sancti Nicolai, Mozart’s Requiem, and a recital January 11, 2013 in Dallas, Texas.  I've been a soloist with the Rockwall Philharmonic Orchestra, Dallas Baptist University Chorale, Texas A & M Chorale, and have performed with Jazz at Lincoln Center alongside Wynton Marsalis.  I've appeared in a recital in Dallas, Texas on January 11, 2013 and made my Carnegie Hall debut in Karl Jenkin’s “The Armed Man” Mass of Peace on January 21, 2013. I took First Place in the 2012 Nico Castel International Master Singer Competition at Carnegie Hall. Recently, I was awarded an Encouragement Award for 2012 from the Metropolitan Opera National Council Audition (Eastern Region).     

Mike L

Instruments:

Mike started playing and became obsessed with the cello at age 16. He would fuse this new-found obsession with the passion he had developed years earlier for heavy metal music. This has defined the unorthodox style he's developed. His music fuses his classical training with his love of heavy metal, fantasy, film & folk music. Building layers of cello on top of each other, he creates a world simultaneously dark, beautiful, wonderful, fantastic & breathtaking.

Shoko N

Instruments:

Studied at Berklee College of Music in Boston. Completed studies in composition and arranging with teachers: Donny Nolan, Phil Wilson, Dan Moretti. Majored in piano performance with teachers: Joanne Brackeen, Kenny Werner and Lyle Mays.  Graduated and received Performance Major Diploma in Music. Studied at the YAMAHA Music Academy in Japan.

Nerina K

Instruments:

My musical background began during my childhood South Africa with a very European-style approach to learning classical piano.  Later, after emigrating to the U.S., I majored in music with a concentration on performance and music history.  I have always been intrigued by the complicated development of classical music in Europe with a special interest in the music of Beethoven. Later, I returned to college in order to become certified in music education - in great part because I believe in bringing music to classrooms where students might otherwise not have any direct connection with music.  

Helena L

Instruments:

Born and raised in NYC, I began my musical training quite early as a professional singer and clarinet player in the band program in middle school, ultimately graduating from The High School of Music and Art (LaGuardia, "Fame"). While there, my sister and I sang with a girl that later became famous and was inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012. I continued my musical education both in school and performing in genres of classical, rock, pop, Gospel, r&b, soul, and folk. A true mix!! Songwriting came later and currently, I have two CD's of my own with original material on both. I've been teaching all ages from 8-88 since I was 18 as a private music teacher and coach, in private and public schools and community centers. I created workshops and shows for my student's participation. Whether it's singing, learning piano, orchestral instuments or songwriting, I am delighted to bring my students where they aspire to reach.

More Information About Piano Lessons

We suggest students purchase a piano or keyboard for their lessons, as they will need to practice every day in order to develop their skills on the instrument. We recommend a keyboard with weighted keys, as this will feel most similar to an actual piano. An actual piano will have 88 keys, but most keyboards start from 65 keys and go up from there. Common keyboard brands found at music stores are Yamaha, Casio, and Korg. Many keyboard sets will come with a case, stand, headphones, and may even offer recording features for recording your own playing.
Piano lessons in your home offer a convenient option for learning to play an instrument. 90% of our students take their lessons in their home, and this is a practical and time-saving way to learn the technique of the instrument. Think of all the time you can save by not having to transport your student to a class every week! In-home lessons are structured in the same way as a studio lesson, and in addition, a younger student may feel more comfortable at an in-home lesson, as they are already familiar with the surroundings.
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.
At Musika, we highly recommend that students looking to learn to play the piano do so with a clear goal in mind. Whether your goal is to learn to play your favourite tunes, reacquaint yourself with the piano, or just to play for fun, our experienced teachers can help you make those goals a reality. Learning, developing and improving technique, co-ordination and theory can actually be quicker during adulthood as the complex thought processes and theory are easier to understand. Adults can also help maintain their fine-motor skills, concentration and listening skills into later life.
Our recommended starting age for piano is 4 or 5, with students capable of playing the keys properly and with sufficient strength in the fingers and hands. Young students also should have begun learning to count and to read. No matter what the age may be, the piano is an excellent introduction to the fundamentals of music, including music theory and basic composition techniques.
