Featured Galena Piano Teachers

Krisann D

Instruments:

I thoroughly enjoy creating fun, positive learning experiences with my students. My goal is to help each student build a musical foundation, explore musical styles he/she enjoys, and see every individual achieve musical capability. During my junior and high school years, I studied under a private undergraduate music professor. Along with his instruction, I explored many styles of music through my involvement with our private school choir. During high school, I had the opportunity to lead our student musicians--arranging and directing the music for our school choir concerts. Since 1988, I have been the music director for our local church congregation, which has been a rewarding and challenging experience.

James M

Instruments:

Award winning songwriter and composer.  Over 50 years of music education.  

Matthew U

Instruments:

As a kid, I grew up listening to all types of music, from soul, jazz, hip-hop, R&B, contemporary, and rock.  My mom introduced me to my first piano at the age of 6 and I was hooked.  Music became a part of my soul.  I had great teachers that continued to help me develop my skills and challenge me.  I started in classical, and soon found myself getting into jazz and contemporary; I was growing as a musician.  Music was becoming a passion.  While my friends were saving for a car, I was saving for a Yamaha Motif XF8.  I would spend hours in my basement producing and creating music.  I believe music can take you to places with no barriers and restrictions.  As the philosopher Nietzsche so appropriately stated, "Without music, life would be a mistake."

Nena M

Instruments:

In 2011, I graduated from University of Nis, Serbia with a Bachelor's degree in General Music Pedagogy. I'm a very patient and motivated instructor who loves working with students. 

Eliza-Jane M

Instruments:

Thank you so much for checking out my profile! I have been having a love affair with music and the arts for over twenty years. Beginning piano lessons at the age of five, it still continues to be one of the biggest joys in my life, second only to singing. I grew up in a very small town in central Illinois, and was always very active in community choirs and theatre. I always knew I wanted to study music, and chose Illinois State to do so. While there, I participated in musicals, as well as concert choir and the women's elite chorus "Belle Voix." Since college, I have been writing original cabarets and performing live around the city of Chicago. It's my philosophy that one should never stop learning, so I study regularly with my voice teacher of eight years, Sandra DeAthos, take class at the Bloom School of Jazz (vocal performance and jazz piano), and with the Second City Music Conservatory.

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.
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.
Our piano lessons take place in a one-on-one setting and are customized to the requirements of each individual student. To get started, beginners will cover such aspects to piano playing as; posture, hand positions, fingering technique, scales, chords and applying these things to simple songs. They will also start to develop their knowledge of music theory, reading chord charts and sheet music. As their dexterity, co-ordination and speed progresses, they can start broadening their musical horizons. They can learn new chords, playing and performance techniques and styles, such as legato, staccato, glissando, runs, fills, as well as work on their sight reading and general theory (time signatures, modes, modulation...). Advanced players often want to study a particular genre of composer, or work on certain aspects of their playing and repertoire. This may include improvisation, or exploring different genres or styles, such as Avant Garde, Jazz or Classical piano.
Taking piano lessons as an adult is a great way to learn a new skill and have fun at the same time. Our instructors can help you learn from the very basic level if you are a beginner, or if you are an advanced player they can help you refine your skills. Adult lessons will focus on learning the technique of the instrument, including how to read music, chords, and learning repertoire
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.
