Featured Galena Piano Teachers

Monika W

Instruments:

I am an accomplished musician and artist with an uncanny ability to understand what children need and empathize with them. I have been learning music since age of 6. I have been taught piano, its techniques, and style, as well as music history from wonderful and talented musicians from all over Europe. I graduated from Art School in Poland. I have been performing in many European countries like Poland or Germany since I was 10.

Joshua P

Instruments:

I'm a passionate and motivated instructor who loves working with students and sharing my love of performance. In 2011, I graduated from the University of Wisconsin River Falls with a Bachelor of Science in Liberal Arts/Performance. Performing all over the world has been one of the greater experiences of my life as a musician, and I have had the opportunity to Conduct the World Vision Children's Choir in S. Korea and be a featured Tenor soloist in the summer music festival "Orvieto Musica" in Orvieto, Italy. 

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.

Ruth K

Instruments:

I am an experienced teacher who loves working with students and sharing my love of music with them.  Over the past three decades I have taught in the schools, for a performing arts school, through studios, eventually owning my own studio, and locally concertized as both a soloist and an ensemble performer.  Groups and students under my direction have won numerous awards and honors and concertized in many venues.  I am blessed to have many of my former students working as professionals in the music industry now and still keep in touch with them and their families.   

Irene Z

Instruments:

I am a second generation pianist and piano teacher who began lessons at the age of 4 under M.M. DePaul graduate and longtime piano teacher, Kathryn, my mother. My musical studies were continued in college at the University of IL at Chicago, and after graduating, at the American Conservatory of Music, where I enrolled in private Masters classes for 7 years (jazz piano, improvisation & other styles). I have over 25 years of international piano and piano/vocal performance experience, which includes the opportunity to perform in Okinawa, Japan at the exquisite 5 star Manza Beach Resort Hotel for 4 months. I have taught piano to children age 5 - adults for 20 years. Teaching is a great joy and inspiration that enriches my life musically, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually. My ultimate goal is to give my students a life-long passion for making music. I maintain both an active performance and teaching schedule, am a member of Music Teachers National, Chicago Area Music Teachers Association, Piano Teachers Federation and continue my music education through attending seminars, workshops and through taking private lessons.

More Information About Piano Lessons

We recommend that students get either a full size piano, or an 88-key, weighted hammer action keyboard for their lessons and practice. A real acoustic piano will provide the most satisfying learning experience, however, due to the costs and size of the instrument, a keyboard is often the more convenient option. Weighted keys will respond most like those of an acoustic piano, and keyboards have the added bonus of being portable and compatible with headphones. The most popular brands of keyboard or digital piano are Yamaha, Casio, Korg and Roland.
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.
Students at different levels of their piano playing will require different aspects of piano playing to be covered during their lessons. Beginners will start out learning the basics, intermediates will be applying the foundations to more complex compositions and advanced players will want to hone a few specific skills or styles. The basic things that beginner students will learn are things such as; learning the notes of the piano, posture and playing technique, scales and chords. At this level, students will learn simple scales and chords, such as major and minor chords, and start to put some of the basic techniques into practice via simple songs. Intermediate players will work on more exotic chords and playing such as diminished chords, 7th chords and applying these things to more challenging compositions. Advanced players can improve sight reading, improvisational abilities or work on genre specific techniques, such as Jazz or Blues. Throughout, students can develop their musical ear, reading and theory.
"We have many adult students taking lessons. Whether you have studied music as a child, or are wanting to learn a new skill, music lessons are a great avenue to go with! Not only do they keep you young and energized, but our teachers are also able to be ""on your level"" and instruct you in a way you can understand."
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.
