Featured Latrobe Piano Teachers

Cara R

Instruments:

My name is Cara and I am a graduate from Grove City College. Music is my life: I teach & perform so I know what it takes to prepare for performing and auditioning. I hold 2 recitals per year for my students: summer & Christmas. Recitals give a great opportunity to get up in front of people, which is definitely scary at first. It gives students a reason to feel very proud of themselves.

Adrienne S

Instruments:

I went to college for music because I love singing.  As a teacher I want to provide my students with the same opportunity to play or perform on their instrument and get that same sense of joy and fulfillment that I do with my voice.  I have traveled on national and European choir tours, performed in musicals and operas, and performed in small groups and individually.  Some of those opportunities would not have been possible for me with out music teachers and private voice teachers who invested in my musical growth and ambition.  I therefore want to invest my knowledge and passion for music into students to help them achieve goals or dreams of their own.

Rachael S

Instruments:

I am a devoted music teacher and passionate performer, who likes to inspire my students to love making music. I perform with orchestras and chamber groups all over the Pennsylvania/Ohio area including the West Virginia Symphony orchestra; contemporary ensemble, Alia Music Pittsburgh; and Trillium Ensemble, a flute, clarient, and piano trio I co-founded. I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in 2006 having studied with Thomas Thompson of the Pittsburgh Symphony. 

Kristin S

Instruments:

I am an experienced and enthusiastic instructor who has been working with music students in the Pittsburgh area for over ten years. As a young child, my grandmother introduced me to the piano and it's been a life long passion ever since. Music has been a source of great opportunity for me, and has allowed me to work with wonderful musicians such as Ralph Zitterbart and Hanna Wu Li, who I worked closely with at Carnegie Mellon University. Piano teaching has also given me the chance to work with wonderful families from around the world, and I have found that I often learn many things from my students, as they learn from me. Learning music has been a creative outlet, a great source of joy, and has provided me the confidence and skills to learn other subjects. My hope is to share my gifts with my students so that they can develop a love and appreciation for music, as well as opportunities to grow and learn artistically.

Emily C

Instruments:

I am an enthusiastic and flexible teacher who seeks to help students chart their own path in music.  I'm an Illinois native, and I studied music education and clarinet performance at the Lawrence University Conservatory of Music in Wisconsin before coming to Pittsburgh to study at Duquesne University. While in Pittsburgh, I've had the opportunity to perform with Alia Musica, a professional contemporary music ensemble, and with the Directions Duo, a group dedicated to performing music new and old in innovative settings.  My performing career has taken me from Boston to the Arkansas Ozarks and many places in between, allowing me the opportunity to grow as a teacher and musician through my interactions with colleagues from a variety of backgrounds.

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.
One-on-one piano lessons straight from the comfort of your own home is a great way to learn to play the piano. 90% of our students choose to take lessons from home, mostly due to the convenience of not having to make travel arrangements both to and from their lessons. This is great for parents and students with busy schedules. The content of home lessons is exactly the same as studio lessons, however, you will need to have a keyboard or piano at your home. Home lessons provide the best learning environment, as it is a comfortable, familiar surrounding for students to learn in.
There are several different, but vey important elements to becoming a good piano player. It takes time to master the basic skills that will set you on your way to excellence. For beginners, the lessons will focus on elementary piano knowledge and technique, such as learning all the notes of the piano, hand and finger techniques for playing, learning scales and chords, as well as some music theory; reading sheet music, chord charts etc... These basic skills can then be applied to simple songs. Students with these foundations in place can expect to cover things like, diminished chords and other chord types, sight reading, playing more challenging compositions and learning the 7 piano modes - Ionian, Dorian, Phrygian, Lydian, Mixolydian, Aeolian and Locrian mode. Lessons for advanced students might cover topics such as improvisation, glissando, or the study of a specific genre of playing or composer, such as Jazz piano or Johann Sebastian Bach.
"We have many adult students taking lessons. Whether you have studied music as a child, or are wanting to learn a new skill, music lessons are a great avenue to go with! Not only do they keep you young and energized, but our teachers are also able to be ""on your level"" and instruct you in a way you can understand."
Piano lessons for children will focus on learning the fundamentals of the technique of the instrument and learning to read music and rhythm. We suggest beginning piano lessons no earlier than age 4, due to the attention span of the child, as well as the strength they have in their hands for playing. Piano Lessons will offer an excellent introduction to learning music for a child. Music theory and musicianship skills will also be taught during the lessons. Piano lessons are a great choice for introducing the art of music to your child!
