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.

More Information About Piano Lessons

Modern day keyboards have a wide ranges of functions that make them perfect for learning to play the piano. Many keyboards have in-built lessons and songs of varying difficulties to play along to, which can act as a great supplement to lessons. Keyboards also come with a range of different instrument sounds and FX, such as percussive sounds, string sounds, synthesizer-type sounds and brass and horn sections, which can be fun to play with. They also usually have a record function and can be synchronised to a personal computer, which is great for hearing back your progress or writing your own music!
Taking piano lessons from the comfort of your own home is the most convenient way of learning to the play the instrument - all you need for your lessons is a piano or keyboard to play on! Home lessons remove the hassle of transporting your child to and from their lessons, and can be fitted around busy work schedules more readily. Whether the lesson takes place in-home or in the studio, the content remains the same. Home piano lessons are a particularly good option for younger students. It is a big advance for young students to learn in a familiar, comfortable and supportive environment.
There is no specific teaching method that all Musika teachers adhere to. All students will have lessons customized to their needs and goals as lessons progress. If there is a specific teaching style you are looking for, we will keep that in mind as we make your teacher match. Many teachers will have a few method books that they use for lessons, which will include exercises and techniques for practicing. All lessons will cover aspects of learning notes, proper technique, ear training, and how to read music.
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.
Piano is a great first instrument for children who have never studied music before. Our instructors specialize in teaching younger children, and will develop an individual lesson plan for your child. The youngest age that we recommend starting piano lessons is age 4. The instructor will be able to teach your child to read music, beginning music theory and musician skills, and how to develop a love for playing the instrument.
