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.  

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

The best instrument to get would be an upright or baby grand piano. However, if your finances are limited we suggest looking into a digital keyboard. Go with the best quality keyboard that you can afford. We suggest a keyboard with weighted keys so that there is additional resistance on the keys than a toy piano. Most digital keyboards start at 65 keys, and go up to a full size 88 keys. You have to consider which keyboard would fit best in your home and your budget. A beginning student should get the keyboard before or immediately after beginning lessons, so that they may begin practicing as soon as the lessons commence.
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.
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.
Our recommended starting age for piano is 4 or 5, with students capable of playing the keys properly and with sufficient strength in the fingers and hands. Young students also should have begun learning to count and to read. No matter what the age may be, the piano is an excellent introduction to the fundamentals of music, including music theory and basic composition techniques.
