Featured Maynard Piano Teachers

Corbin C

Instruments:

 I started piano lessons when I was very young and think all kids that are interested in lessons should be given the chance to see if they are ready. I cater my teaching to each individual student, because everyone is ready to start lessons at a different age, learns at a different rate, and experiences learning differently. I started teaching in my mother's piano studio as a teenager, had a fabulous pedagogy instructor at Oberlin, and continue exposing myself to new materials. As a result, I am familiar with numerous methods and teaching styles and can choose the books and approach that are right for each student. My ultimate teaching goals are to give students a firm foundation in music reading, to enjoy performing, and to work hard and be proud of their accomplishments.

Christopher L

Instruments:

I'm an enthusiastic and encouraging instructor, who loves to share my passion for music with stduents.  In 2012, I graduated from Ithaca College with Bachelor of Music degrees in Music Composition and Music Theory.  I spent the past year teaching composition, choral directing, and accompanying undergraduate performance majors at a study abroad institute in Vienna, Austria.  I will be starting a Master of Music degree in Theory this Fall.

Aaron B

Instruments:

I began learning piano at the age of three.  My dad is a band and chorus teacher and didn't consider it an "optional" skill.  I actually learned to read music before english!  (I was confused in kindergarten when I found that the alphabet went past G!)  Music has been an integral part of my life since then with my elementary and high school years filled with festivals, concerts, auditions and competitions.  I then went on to get my Bachelor's degree at Berklee College of Music.  I am currently working on my Master's Degree in Composition at the Vermont College of Fine Arts and hope to pursue my Ph.D in Composition afterwards.

More Information About Piano Lessons

We recommend that students get either a full size piano, or a weighted keyboard for their lessons. It is very important to set up a practice schedule every day. You can purchase a basic keyboard at a local music store or an electronic store. Some students may also wish to rent a piano if they do not wish to invest in buying one right away. Digital keyboards offer a good choice for the beginning student because they are portable and easily stored in your home. Keyboards will start at 65 keys at the smallest amount and increase to a full size keyboard of 88 keys. The most common brands of keyboard are Casio, Yamaha, and Korg.
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.
The content of each lesson is determined by the ability and experience level of each individual student. For beginner students who are new to the piano, lessons will be devised to give students the fundamentals of good piano playing. Students will learn the correct posture, hand position and fingering techniques for playing scales and chords. 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, they develop their sight reading, music theory - such as time signatures - and applying these skills to more complex compositions. Advanced players may want to study a particular genre or composer. Pianists who enjoy Classical music may like to study the compositions of Bach or Mozart, or maybe develop their Jazz or Blues playing. Teachers can also help prepare students for exam, auditions, performances or recitals.
Adults take up piano lessons for a number of different reasons. Some people want to reintroduce themselves to the instrument having once played it in the past, while others are looking for a new hobby or just to learn a new skill for fun! Whatever the reason, there are major benefits to learning the piano during adulthood. Learning piano technique can help retain fine motor skills and co-ordination, it can keep the mind sharp due to the complex thought processes and has shown to be good for preserving your hearing. Learning to play the piano can also be therapeutic, and is a great stress reliever.
Learning to play the piano as a child is a fun, rewarding and vastly beneficial to their overall development. Children can develop their motor-skills, dexterity and coordination through technical piano playing - learning scales, chords and correct fingering. Young students can also develop their concentration, listening skills and ability to master complex thought processes through theory, repertoire and student-teacher feedback. Learning to play the piano can also be character building, such as instilling a hard-working attitude, developing self-discipline and confidence through practice, taking exams, enter competitions or performing recitals.
