Featured Galena Piano Teachers

Farobag Homi C

Instruments:

Music Director of the Chicago Philharmonia Orchestra since 1985, Farobag has also served as Managing Director of the University of Chicago’s Performing Artists Series from 1990 through 2002 and principal conductor of its resident professional ensembles. A skilled interpreter of Baroque literature as well, Cooper continues in his capacity as Artistic Advisor to the Baroque Masterplayers, a virtuoso ensemble that concatenates period performance techniques with modern instruments thus creating a unique voice within the realm of 17th and 18th- century repertoire. A graduate of the Eastman School of Music and the University of Rochester, Farobag studied under Anastasia Jempelis, a pioneer of Suzuki violin pedagogy in the United States.

George F

Instruments:

George has been a church organist and director for 46 years. He is currently the assistant organist/accompanist at St. Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Naperville, Illinois where he works with Matthew Sprinkle who is the director of sacred music. Mr. Felty is also set up at the church to teach private piano students in the Naperville, Wheaton, and western suburbs of Chicago. In 2011, Mr. Felty graduated from Concordia University, River Forest, Illinois with a Master of Church Music Degree where his major instrument was organ. Dr. Steven Wente was his former teacher. Prior to starting at St. Peter and Paul Catholic, he was the former organist and assistant director at First United Methodist Church in La Grange, Illinois where he worked with Gary Wilhelm. In addition to the Master of Church Music Degree, he also holds a Master of Music Degree in organ performance from Norfolk State University in Virginia where he studied with Dr. Allen Shaffer, retired professor of music.

Jeff S

Instruments:

Jeff  has emerged as a versatile and powerful musical force. His talents as an interpreter of new, old and diverse styles have made him uniquely suited to promoting new music, transcriptions and jazz improvisation during an exciting period for the saxophone. Some of Jeff’s most recent efforts in chamber music have proven fruitful. His saxophone quartet, the Estrella Consort recently returned from a nine-day tour of Ecuador and has been invited to perform in the prestigious Fischoff International Chamber Music Competition.  His trio, Trikaya, was awarded the 2012 Music Teachers of North America’s second prize for woodwind chamber music. Jeff played lead alto saxophone in the Arizona State University Concert Jazz Band and anchored the horn section of The JJ's, one of Phoenix's most popular bands. His abilities as a jazz artist and as a woodwind specialist earned him a position with the 2011 touring production of Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story.  He also conducted the Scottsdale Musical Theater Company production of Guys and Dolls. An avid proponent of New Music, Jeff has commissioned original scores from composers in Arizona, California, New York, Washington and China. He has premiered many new works for saxophone including his own soprano saxophone transcriptions of César Franck’s A Maj Violin Sonata and Olivier Messian’s Fantasy for Violin and Piano. The soon-to-be-published Franck transcription is already seeing use within the saxophone community.  

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).

Lisa M

Instruments:

I believe everyone at any age can learn to play music and should experience the joys and rewards it brings.  I want music to be easy and fun, so whether a student is interested in leisure studies or is more serious, a beginner or advanced, has natural or limited ability, lessons are tailored to the student's needs. I am thorough in making sure they understand new concepts before moving on - this allows study to be fun and progress to be secure! I have been teaching for 15 years and would not trade it for anything. Music is something no one can take away, but it is meant to be shared. Sharing the love of music is my passion.

More Information About Piano Lessons

Most students start out with a keyboard or digital piano. We recommend a full size keyboard with 88 weighted keys - weighted keyboards will have a touch response similar to a real piano. However, if purchasing a real piano is in your budget, we think that a real acoustic piano will provide you and the student with the highest level of satisfaction during practice time.
Musika deals primarily with home lessons for students. The location is the only difference between our in-home lessons and our studio lessons. As they do not have to travel to their lessons, home piano lessons can be highly convenient for those parents and students with a busy schedule - students will need a keyboard to practice on, however. For younger students in particular, having piano lessons in the comfort of their own home can be of great benefit. They will feel more safe and relaxed in familiar surroundings, allowing them to focus on learning and enjoying playing the piano.
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 learning the notes of the piano, and progress to learning how to sight read using songs the student is familiar with. As the lessons progress, more focus is placed upon proper technique, fingering, and posture, and basic music theory is also introduced. Whatever direction a students goes in with their teacher, the instructor will work to make lessons fun and enjoyable!
The piano is an easy instrument for beginners of all ages. We have adults who are total novices, some who haven't played their instrument in 10 years, and some who are more advanced students looking to take their skills to the next level. Our teachers have proven methods to get you the results you desire.
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.
