Michael K

I have enjoyed working with children and adults for over 18 years because I believe that learning music is an especially powerful and enriching experience like no other. I have played piano, guitar, violin, recorder, bass, voice and African drums. My performance genres stretch from Jazz, to Classical to Reggae to Rock and more.  I was very fortunate to perfrom at Carnegie Hall, The Cathedral of Saint John the Divine, and many venues across the country in small combo groups and big bands.  I was honored to be chosen as a second bassist with Jimmy Heath's Graduate Jazz Ensemble when I was a mere unergraduate.  One of the most important lessons music has taught me is that if you dream it you can become it.  I believe that every student can learn to perform music and treasure their experiences for a lifetime.

More Information About Piano Lessons

An upright or grand piano is often too expensive or large for the home. For lessons and practice, keyboards are a great alternative. Many keyboards can be powered via battery, making them portable, and can also be played with headphones which makes late night practice possible. Many keyboards also have built-in lessons that students can play along to, as well as having many sounds available, such as stringed sounds; violin, cello, viola, horn sounds and percussive sounds. This makes keyboards more diverse than a piano, and a fun alternative for practising on. Many keyboards are also compatible with home computers, which is great for uploading recordings.
Taking piano lessons from the comfort of your own home is the most convenient way of learning to the play the instrument. Finding the additional time out of a busy schedule to transport your child to and from their lessons can be difficult, making home lessons a convenient, time and money saving option. The only thing necessary for home lessons is a keyboard or piano to play on! There is no difference between the lesson content of studio or home lessons - only the location is different. Home lessons help provide a safe, familiar and comfortable learning environment for students.
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.
For adults who are looking to learn to play the piano, we recommend that they do so with some clear goals in mind. Maybe you want to learn to play some of your favourite songs, pass an exam or write your own music? Whatever the aim, our experienced teachers can help unlock the skills necessary to make those goals a reality. It can take time to develop the techniques and co-ordination required to play the piano to a competent level. However, playing the piano is a great stress reliever, keeps you mentally active and can help with your hearing and fine-motor skills.
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.
