Featured Hilton Piano Teachers

David D

Instruments:

I remember my first experience playing in the band program at my elementary school. It was exciting and fun and from that point on I was hooked. I have been playing in different bands ever since, from classical quartets to small jazz groups, funk, blues and big bands.

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!

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 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.
Music lessons in your home offer a convenient option to learning music! Most of our students request in home lessons for this reason. As long as you have a piano or keyboard in your home, then you should be all set to start your lessons! Children who have never played an instrument before may feel more comfortable studying in their own home, as it may be less intimidating than going somewhere else. In home lessons decrease the time and gas money spent traveling to a different location.
Our piano lessons take place in a one-on-one setting and are customized to the requirements of each individual student. Students vary in ability from beginner to advanced, and naturally have different lessons requirements for each stage of their development. Put broadly, 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. Intermediates will start to take these concepts further, but learning different chords variations, such as diminished, augments, slash and 7th chords, as well as improving their speed and playing more complex compositions. Advanced students can develop playing skills such as glissando, improv and working with different piano modes, such as Dorian, Mixolydian and Aeolin. They may also like to study a specific genre - usually Jazz or Blues piano.
At Musika, we highly recommend that students looking to learn to play the piano do so with a clear goal in mind. Whether your goal is to learn to play your favourite tunes, reacquaint yourself with the piano, or just to play for fun, our experienced teachers can help you make those goals a reality. Learning, developing and improving technique, co-ordination and theory can actually be quicker during adulthood as the complex thought processes and theory are easier to understand. Adults can also help maintain their fine-motor skills, concentration and listening skills into later life.
Learning to play the piano as a child is a fun, rewarding and vastly beneficial to their overall development. Children can develop their motor-skills, dexterity and coordination through technical piano playing - learning scales, chords and correct fingering. Young students can also develop their concentration, listening skills and ability to master complex thought processes through theory, repertoire and student-teacher feedback. Learning to play the piano can also be character building, such as instilling a hard-working attitude, developing self-discipline and confidence through practice, taking exams, enter competitions or performing recitals.
