Featured Manassas Piano Teachers

Melissa M

Instruments:

Melissa began singing in a church choir at the age of four and has been "hooked" ever since. After years of performing in various choirs and taking lessons herself, she went on to earn her Bachelor's degree in vocal performance at Illinois Wesleyan University and her Master's at Illinois State University. Meanwhile, Melissa was also studying piano from childhood through college. Now in her 21st year of playing, Melissa loves to teach beginner and intermediate pianists in addition to young singers. She is a newcomer to the DC area, and has previously lived, sung, and taught in Illinois, Indiana, and Vienna, Austria. Melissa has performed on both the undergraduate and graduate level (and beyond). Her experience includes operas, operettas, recitals, musicals, and choirs. She has performed in venues ranging from the Indianapolis Opera to the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. Over the years she has performed in the United States, Canada, England, France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Russia, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and Finland. She also studied piano for many years, and has experience as an accompanist and vocal coach. Other than her pedagogy training and the typical university diction and literature curriculum, she also took 14 years of French, and lived in a German-speaking country for the better part of a year studying the language. Her knowledge of diction and language issues is extensive. This, combined with her comprehensive training in music theory, history, and repertoire, gives her a vast reserve of knowledge and resources for her teaching.

Donna H

Instruments:

I am a very seasoned voice and piano teacher with a very broad music education in vocal performance, piano performance, accompanying, music education, musical theatre and conducting.  I am solidly classically trained in standard repetoire.  I am a conductor of school, church, and community choirs and have been a guest conductor at American Choral Directors Conventions.  I am the past Music Teachers National Association President from Fairbanks, Alaska. I was also a Lead Singer and Director of Class Act Vocal Jazz Band and Golden Heart Chorale.  I have the very best to offer my students.  In addition I am an expert in vocal technique, vocal health and fixing vocal problems including speaking.

Gregory H

Instruments:

I'm a passionate teacher with over 7 successful years of teaching experience. I began teaching voice, piano, guitar, saxophone, and drums as I completed my degree in Music Education and Composition.  

Michael K

Instruments:

I have enjoyed working with children and adults for over 18 years because I believe that learning music is an especially powerful and enriching experience like no other. I have played piano, guitar, violin, recorder, bass, voice and African drums. My performance genres stretch from Jazz, to Classical to Reggae to Rock and beyond.  I have been very fortunate to perfrom at Carnegie Hall, The Cathedral of Saint John the Divine, and many venues across the country in small combo groups and big bands.  I was honored to be chosen as a second bassist with Jimmy Heath's Graduate Jazz Ensemble when I was a mere unergraduate.  One of the most important lessons music has taught me is that if you dream it you can become it.  I believe that every student can learn to perform music and treasure their experiences for a lifetime.

Tissa K

Instruments:

  I discovered playing music as a youngster in middle school in Tallahassee, FL. I immediately associated myself with and took lessons from the best musicians I could find in my area, including the faculty at Florida State University. I later attended FSU and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Jazz Studies. I have since had the pleasure of joining the Modern Jazz Generation to perform at Jazz at Lincoln Center, Alys Stephens Hall in Birmingham in Alabama, and at the Savannah Music Festival. I have shows with my band later this year in Chicago, Vermont, and hopefully Washington DC. I spend much of my time in Washington DC teaching music and other subjects, as well as composing and practicing music.

More Information About Piano Lessons

A keyboard or digital piano is a perfectly acceptable alternative to an acoustic piano for the purposes of lessons and practice. The major advantages of keyboards are the cheap price, portability and the possibility of playing with headphones, which means being able to practice without disturbing others. When buying a keyboard, look to get one with a weighted hammer action and as many keys as possible - a minimum of 61 should suffice. Weighted keys with most resemble the touch sensitivity of a real piano. The most common brands are Casio, Korg and Yamaha. If possible, look to purchase an upright or bay grand piano.
In home lessons are what 90% of our students request. Not only does this provide a convenient means to study music, but we also notice no difference in the quality of lessons done in home or in studio. They are typically structured the same. The main benefit of in-home lessons is the reduction in travel time to another location, and additionaly the student may be able to focus better in your own home since they are familiar with it. Piano lessons in the home offer a practical choice for your family for learning the skill of playing a musical instrument.
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.
For adults who are looking to learn to play the piano, we recommend that they do so with some clear goals in mind. Maybe you want to learn to play some of your favourite songs, pass an exam or write your own music? Whatever the aim, our experienced teachers can help unlock the skills necessary to make those goals a reality. It can take time to develop the techniques and co-ordination required to play the piano to a competent level. However, playing the piano is a great stress reliever, keeps you mentally active and can help with your hearing and fine-motor skills.
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!
