Featured Hagerstown Piano Teachers

Diane P

Instruments:

I attended Berklee College of Music in Boston prior to moving to Los Angeles.  There, I would work with some industry greats like Richard Druz, Lenny Greene and Frank Zappa.  I absorbed their skills, talents and techniques.  After singing with many bands in the area, I found gospel music and joined a church with Pastor Rowena Frisco in Inglewood.  Frisco taught me what gospel music was all about and I have carried it with me ever since.   I returned to the East Coast to complete my  formal education at New York University where I received my BA in music performance.  I formed the Diane Postell Band and toured the mid-Atlantic region performing a mixture of blues, rock, rnb, soul, gospel and jazz.  Hoping to reach a larger audience, I wrote, arranged, and produced my solo debut, What I Got To Say.  Diane Postell is as dedicated to teaching as she is to performance.  She creates an environment of support and encouragement allowing artists to feel nurtured.  Postell has a holistic approach to singing; it encompasses the mind, body and soul.  She welcomes student participation and input during a lesson.  Instead of holding every student to the same measure, Diane charts success on attainment of your goals.  She recognizes that every artist is an individual so success is dependent on individual goals challenged and attained.

Aida K

Instruments:

I'm a very passionate and motivated instructor.I love to work, share my love of music with my students, and make them understand, as well as appreciate the value of the music world.

Yvonne M

Instruments:

I am a fun-spirited teacher that maintains structure to every lesson and I have a passion for teaching students of all ages how to play the piano. I started playing the piano about 25 years ago and I began teaching about 12 years ago. I performed in many recitals and guild auditions as a student, and in college I began to perform at Open Mics, at weddings and then dinner music at restaurants. I was a National Guild of Piano Teachers Member from 2006 to 2008 and prepared several students to perform in guild auditions. I have recorded songs that I have written in different studios and enjoy the performance aspect of learning songs. I encourage students to perform in recitals too if they so desire.

Michael D

Instruments:

I have always had a passion for music and have worked hard to be able to enjoy playing it today.  I understand what it takes to get enjoyment out of music and above all else I try to get my students to enjoy it as well.  After studying at American University and Amsterdam Conseratory of Music I graduated with a Bachelors of Arts in Music Performance in 2013.  While studying in school and since graduating I have never stopped teaching, and I have the proper combination of experience and skill needed to make fun and informative lessons for students.

More Information About Piano Lessons

Most students start out by learning to play on a keyboard or digital piano. The most reputable keyboards brands are Yamaha, Roland and Casio, and can be purchased from most good music instrument retailers. Students should look to buy a keyboard with 88 weighted keys, as this will most resemble the playability of a real piano. At a minimum, 61 keys will suffice for most songs and practice. Keyboards are portable and can be played with headphones, making them highly convenient for practice. That said, if it is within you means to buy an acoustic piano, it will provide the best learning experience.
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.
In many ways adult learns have an advantage over young students. Adults have better self-discipline with regards to practice, a more patient and have higher levels of concentration. This allows them to develop the basic skills at a reasonably quick rate. Learning the piano is also a great way of remaining mental active during adulthood, and helps students to improve their hand-eye co-ordination and develop a critical ear. Learning to play the piano in adulthood can be beneficial health-wise, is a great way of harnessing creativity and stimulating the brain as can be immensely satisfying when achieving set goals.
Piano lessons for children will focus on learning the fundamentals of the technique of the instrument and learning to read music and rhythm. We suggest beginning piano lessons no earlier than age 4, due to the attention span of the child, as well as the strength they have in their hands for playing. Piano Lessons will offer an excellent introduction to learning music for a child. Music theory and musicianship skills will also be taught during the lessons. Piano lessons are a great choice for introducing the art of music to your child!
