Featured Glendale Piano Teachers

Nicholas C

Instruments:

My musical education is firmly grounded in the classical repertoire, with an emphasis on the works of Bach, Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven in my early years of study. My first teachers were relatively strict in an approach that emphasized familiarity and stylistic understanding of these 4 major composers as key preparation for tackling romantic and modern music.  I was extremely fortunate to have been helped by Maria Curcio, who as a pupil of the great Arthur Schnabel, was renowned in her abilities as an exponent of the classical style. Her genius in setting forth a cogent, comprehensive technical approach was also one of her great strengths and I am happy to have been able to absorb her methods and thereby pass along her knowledge to a new generation of pianists. 

Joshua P

Instruments:

I was born in the town of Hebron, Ohio and graduated from a small rural high school. I first found my love for music with the help of my high school band director Mr. Scott Coffey, a graduate of Ohio University. From the 7th grade until high school graduation, I studied saxophone privately with Mr. Coffey, and held the highest position in the high school symphonic band. I was a part of many honor bands around Ohio including two years of Ohio University honor Band, two years of District Honor Band, and Capital University Honor Reading Band. I participated in marching band for all four years of high school and for two years at Ohio University with the Marching 110. In high school I arranged music for the marching band to play. After high school graduation in 2009 I attended Ohio University, studying Music Composition privately with Dr. Mark Phillips and Music Production at Ohio University Scripps College of Communication. I was a part of a variety of projects during my four years. One of the first major projects was being the music director for the musical “Rent” for the Los Flamingo Company, and I spent much of my time training vocalist and organizing the orchestra pit. With Dr. Mark Phillips and Professor Andre Gribou, a film composer, I began studying film music. I composed for countless films for the HTC Ohio University Program and for graduate student films, and also wrote the full score for an 88 minute film. The main focus of my music composing was in Midi composing and sample music, and while in college I maintained many sound libraries from Sweetwater Music and learned to perfect sample library composing. The study of Music Production came very easy for me and I enjoyed learning how to use many Digital Audio Workstation’s (DAW’s), as well as recording artists, finding talent, and learning the art of mastering albums. I had the opportunity to work at Ohio University School of Music as their sound engineer from 2009-2012, in charge of recording, mixing, and mastering the concerts for school records and educational use. Outside of working for the School of Music, I also got to record countless bands and watch professors recording artists professionally in the Radio Television Recording Studio.  As a recent graduate of Ohio University, I moved to Los Angeles California in pursuit of a film music and sound engineering career. 

Tigranuhi C

Instruments:

   My name is Tina Chapkinyan. I am a violin teacher for beginner and advanced students. I also teach beginner piano. I have over thirty years of experience teaching classical music, which is the base of all musical styles. My teaching style, which I have developed through experience and continuous musical education, is based on my formal Russian musical education. I always get to know each and every one of my students on individual basis and develop personalized curriculum based on his or her character, goals and ambitions.  I am an active member of Music Teachers Association of California (MTAC). My students take the Certificate of Merit (CM) test annually in performance, theory, sight-reading and ear training.  Taking the CM test is optional but highly recommended. I also make sure my students have plenty of chances at performing on stage at recitals by organizing my own recitals or joining forces with other MTAC teachers. Having a recital to practice for is a great motivation for students to practice daily and gives the parents the chance to see their children's accomplishments.

Lindsay S

Instruments:

I am a young, passionate, and energetic teacher with a unique approach to music instruction. I graduated from Wesleyan University in 2014 with a degree in Music Performance/Composition as well as English/Creative Writing. My Senior Thesis was an original musical that received honors in Wesleyan's prestigious Music Department. I have performed across the country as a singer-songwriter but I also have extensive background in music theory, classical piano, and jazz piano/voice.   

Andrew M

Instruments:

I am dedicated music teacher based in southern California who loves spreading my love for music with other students.  I graduated from Indiana University with a Master of Music degree in Percussion Performance with an outside area study of jazz improvisation.  I've been fortunate enough to tour the country including a performance in Carnegie Hall in New York city.  I currently play and write music with multiple groups as a percussionist, drummer, and steel drum player.

More Information About Piano Lessons

As students will need to practice the content taught during their lessons, they will need to invest in a digital piano or a keyboard. There are a number of different keyboards on the market, however we suggests looking to buy one with 61 keys or more. Keyboards with weighted action keys are most like that of a real piano, and are recommended. Keyboards are often a cheaper and more convenient option that digital pianos or a real piano, as they can be transported around and played using headphones. That said, if buying an acoustic piano is within your budget, it will provide the most satisfying learning experience.
Musika offers one-on-one, in-home guitar lessons that are designed specifically for each individual student. Whether your lesson takes place in the studio or at home, students will get the exact same lesson content, with the only difference being the location. Parents will find home guitar lessons a much more convenient option for their child, as it saves the time and costs of transporting their children to and from the studio. Younger students will find that learning to play the guitar in the comfort of their own homes greatly benefits their development as they are learning in a supportive, secure and familiar environment.
Whether you have an interest in learning to play Rock, Jazz, Romantic or Classical piano, our piano teachers can help develop your playing through one-on-one lessons. Our teachers can also prepare you for exams, recitals and performances. For beginners, the basics will be taught. This will include learning the correct posture, hand position and fingering technique. It will include learning the notes and scales of the piano, learning basic chords and chord progressions, developing the musical ear and learning to apply these things to 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. All students can develop their sight reading, ability to interpret sheet music and chord charts. Advanced students can study a particular composer o genre, can develop their repertoire, or work on their improvisational skills.
Many older students are fulfilling a long standing ambition by taking piano lessons. Some students may have had lessons when they were younger and want to re-learn and others are simply looking for a new hobby. Whatever the aim or reason, there are many benefits to piano lessons for older students. Learning the piano can keep you mentally active, help maintain dexterity, improve your hearing and stimulate the brain in a creative way. Older students can develop basic technique and music theory quite quickly, as their concentration, thinking skills and self-discipline are more advanced than that of children.
Due to the attention span of very young children, we advise that students begin their piano lessons no younger than age 4 or 5. Piano lessons are a great way to introduce an instrument for the first time to a younger child, as learning piano will teach them basic musicianship skills like rhythm and harmony, and how to read sheet music and chords.
