Featured Lakeville Piano Teachers

Armen S

Instruments:

As a child, I loved to sing. Although I could not understand the words, I relied on the sounds and melodies of songs—songs that were Russian, Armenian, and even English. I believe my concentration on the music and not the words lead me into my passion for the piano, which I started playing at the age of eight. Performing the Bach Preludes for my first concert, I was attached to the energy and spirit of the piano. As my skills developed, my desire to become a solo pianist grew. I am passionate about music, and I work to perfect my technique, striving to bring out the composer’s intentions in whatever piece I perform. Fundamentally, my interpretations stem from my life’s experiences: from the difficulties of becoming a classical musician to leaving my family in Armenia for Germany in order to pursue my passion for piano. I have been brought up in the Russian/Soviet traditions of piano performance. I studied in Armenia and entered competitions in order to pursue a career as a concert pianist. However, my endeavors have led me towards experiences not merely as a soloist but also as a chamber musician. In Armenia I studied with Rosa Tandilyan who was responsible for my early training and for giving me a solid music education as an aspiring young pianist. Her relentless dedication to pedagogy provided me with top rate instruction, and gave me the foundation on which all my professional success was obtained. After winning the LB Bank Scholarship for Young Musicians (Germany), I moved to Karlsruhe, Germany, to study with Professor Olga Rissin at the Karlsruhe Hochschule für Musik. In Germany, I have performed numerous concerts as a soloist, receiving an invitation to record Bach’s Busoni Chaconne for the SWR Radio Station in Southern Germany. In 2010  I came to US and completed Artist Diploma at Hamline International Piano Institute with professor Alexander Braginsky.

Kimberly H

Instruments:

Cello is my main instrument, but I have also been teaching piano, guitar, and violin for years.  I love teaching and the variety of finding the approach that works best for each individual student.  On a personal note, I was married in 2010 and had my first child, a boy, a year later.  I live in Northfield but commute up to the Eden Prairie/Chanhassen area for lessons every Monday.  I am also open to giving lessons at people's homes who are close to Highway 35 on the way to or from the Cities.

Minghui Phebe Y

Instruments:

Minghui graduated from North Central University in Minneapolis, MN in 2009 with a Bachelor's in Piano Performance and Conducting. She is currently attending University of St Thomas in St Paul, MN to receive her Masters in Music Education: Piano Pedagogy. Phebe is originally from Singapore, and began playing piano at the age of three and found she really loved playing. She played for the National Youth Festival in Singapore and has also performed with choirs internationally. She recently accompanied the North Central University Chorale in a performance at Carnegie Hall, New York. Phebe has been teaching piano for 17 years, and passing on a genuine, life-long passion for music is her goal for teaching piano. She believes that music is a way to guide a student's artistic development, character, and a means for her students to serve others and glorify the Lord; to see her students succeed in their life endeavors.

Richard B

Instruments:

Plays piano and brass instruments in a number of bands and ensembles and teaches private lessons for beginning to advanced level students.  

Jacob A

Instruments:

I'm a laid-back but passionate music instructor who really enjoys teaching students of all ages and all ability levels. I have been teaching regularly for 5 years and have learned immensely from the experiences myself, which I use to better teach students now. I have earned degrees from the Cleveland Institute of Music and the University of Illinois, and have performed as a soloist and collaborative pianist throughout the Midwest and East Coast. To further sharpen my skills as a teacher, I earned an additional master's degree in piano pedagogy from the University of Illinois. I strive to remain as active as possible as a performer and teacher.

More Information About Piano Lessons

For the sake of lessons and practice, a keyboard is often a much more viable option than buying a piano. Pianos are space consuming and expensive, as well as being very loud. Keyboards are perfect - especially for beginners - as they are more diverse in their functionality. Most keyboards come with a range of different sounds and effects (FX), such as chorus, reverb and synthesizer sounds. Another great feature common to many keyboards is a record function. This allows students to hear things back after they have played them, such as practicing scales etc... or to record ideas they are composing!
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.
Musika piano lessons can be tailored to suit students of all abilities, whether they are beginners, intermediates or advanced level players. 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 can start to increase their playing speed in order to perform runs, fills and solos, they can broaden their chord playing to things like augmented chords, diminished chords, slash chords and so on... They can work on their sight reading, music theory - such as learning different time signatures - and applying these skills to more complex songs. For advanced players, they will be adding an edge to their playing, such as improvisational skills, repertoire and genre-specific work, like learning Jazz or Romantic piano.
Studying piano as an adult is a fun and educational experience. You will learn the technique of the instrument, and various selections of repertoire tailored to your needs and goals. Whether you are a beginner or advanced student, our instructor can help you improve your skills on the instrument. Many of our adult students enjoy playing their music at local clubs and venues in their communities.
Children are recommended to start piano lessons no earlier than age 4 or 5. The attention span and personality of the child are something to consider when thinking of taking lessons. Even if your child has no evident musical inclinations, piano lessons offer a great option for introducing your child to music. During their lessons children will learn how to read music, fundamentals of musicianship and sight reading, music theory techniques, and ear training.
