Featured Hilton Piano Teachers

Olivia F

Instruments:

Olivia realized she was a born musician at the age of four, when her parents found her playing the wedding march on the piano by ear.  Since then, she has developed her natural musical knack with a college degree, years of performance experience in a variety of genres, scoring almost a dozen of films and leading church music at a handful of churches.  When she's not playing music - she enjoys reading, cooking, crafting and biking with her husband.  

Yunjin K

Instruments:

Yunjin currently resides in Rochester, New York teaching both piano and vocal students. After winning the Concerto Competition at the Eastman School of Music, she was featured as a soloist with the Eastman Philharmonia Orchestra for the performance of Messiaen’s “Poémes pour Mi” in the spring of 2012. Additionally, during her undergraduate study she was awarded the Frazier Soprano Scholarship and won the university’s Concerto Competition. She has also taken first place and received scholarships in other competitions including the Mu Phi International Fraternity Competition and the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS). In addition to working with Arlene Elizabeth Sierra in preparation to perform one of her compositions, “Hearing Things” in a guest lecture recital, Yunjin has worked with Kevin Kennedy, Wieland Mueller, Sheron Chirstman, Rick Chirstman, and Fabiana Bravo. She was recently appeared as Elisetta in “Il Matrimonio Segreto” for Eastman Opera Theatre and selected to be the soprano soloist for the Eastman-Rochester Chorus’ performance of Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis. She has also participated in presentations of many opera productions and scenes such as: “Cosi Fan Tutte,” "Der Rosenkavalier," "The Rake's Progress," “Dido and Aeneas,” “Don Giovanni,” “Merry Widow,” “Mireille” and “Street Scene.” Her talents can be heard on a recently released album entitled, “A Thousand Burnt Offerings.”  As a professional musician, she teaches her Musika students with love and care.

Jessica B

Instruments:

I love explaining and sharing music with people. I love engaging with students and bringing them from their current level to a higher level of artistic knowledge and musicianship. As an opera singer, recitalist and musical theater performer-I bring a lot of experience and legacy to pass down to my students. I love being able to  empower them to do their very best. I am so blessed to be a teacher and performer!

Matthew K

Instruments:

I am a passonate teacher and musician, and enjoy inspiring other people to express themselves through music. I graduated from the Eastman School of Music with a Bachelors degree in Jazz Studies and Contemporary Media in 2013. I have been fortunate to play with several world class musicians through Eastman, and had the opportunity to play in the International Rochester Jazz Festival for the past 4 years. 

Benjamin M

Instruments:

I'm a unique and creative teacher who's passionate about developing the all-around musician.  In 2012, I graduated from the  Eastman School of Music with degrees in Viola Performance and from the highly acclaimed Music Education program.  My time in school helped me to understand the necessity of properly developing musicianship as well as the technical skills required to play an instrument.  This leads to more valuable and enjoyable lessons for the students.  I am also an active performer; my chamber group has performed and competed all around the country, including an appearance on the public radio.

More Information About Piano Lessons

We suggest students purchase a piano or keyboard for their lessons, as they will need to practice every day in order to develop their skills on the instrument. We recommend a keyboard with weighted keys, as this will feel most similar to an actual piano. An actual piano will have 88 keys, but most keyboards start from 65 keys and go up from there. Common keyboard brands found at music stores are Yamaha, Casio, and Korg. Many keyboard sets will come with a case, stand, headphones, and may even offer recording features for recording your own playing.
Piano lessons in your home offer a convenient option for learning to play an instrument. 90% of our students take their lessons in their home, and this is a practical and time-saving way to learn the technique of the instrument. Think of all the time you can save by not having to transport your student to a class every week! In-home lessons are structured in the same way as a studio lesson, and in addition, a younger student may feel more comfortable at an in-home lesson, as they are already familiar with the surroundings.
As piano lessons are customized to the needs of each individual student, we are able to better help you to achieve your goals. Beginner students may just want to learn an instrument out of interest and for fun - so the basics will be covered to get you up and running. This will include music theory and technical exercises, such as hand position, fingering and playing scales and chords. Intermediate students may be working towards an exam, recital or performance, so will cover playing, performance and stylistic techniques such as legato, staccato, glissando, sight reading, exploring harmonics and working on speed - runs, fills and solos. Other topics that may be covered in your piano lessons are things like piano modes, expanding your repertoire, developing improvisation and jamming skills and studying the various types of genre-based playing techniques and styles, such as Jazz, Ragtime, Blues, Rock or Classical piano.
Learning a new musical skill as an adult is a great way to keep your brain fresh! We have many adult students actively taking lessons with us, and this actually represents around 50% of our student base. Our instructors will offer an individually tailored lesson plan to the needs of an adult student. You will learn the technique of the instrument, specific repetoire suited to your skill level, and learn how to read music and sight read.
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.
