Featured Memphis Piano Teachers

John S

Instruments:

My name is John and I have been teaching young people and adults how to play musical instruments for 21 years.

Priscilla T

Instruments:

Priscilla began her violin studies in New England Conservatory's Preparatory division at the age of 8. She has a BA in biology from Oberlin College, a BM in violin performance from Oberlin Conservatory and an MM in performance from SUNY Purchase. Her previous teachers include Ikuko Mizuno, Kyung Sun Lee, Laurie Smukler and David Bowlin. Currently she just finished her AD at the University of Memphis where she studied with Soh-Hyun Park Altino and plays with the Memphis symphony orchestra.  Priscilla has been playing in orchestras for 12 years and has been an avid chamber musician since the age of 12 giving her the opportunity to work with artists such as Mischa Amory, Andrew Jennings, Mike Kelley, Alex Klein, Elise Kuder, Julia Lichten, Catherina Meints, Movses Pogossian, Jennifer Ross, Peter Stumpf, Brooks Whitehouse, Calvin Wiersma and Carmit Zori. Priscilla believes that classical music is not only a refined art but a beautiful gift from God that helps people learn to communicate, meditate, express and listen by doing so.  She is passionate about communicating with people from all walks of life, and this love has brought her to play several outreach concerts in the Cleveland area. Priscilla loves music because of its ability to pull her towards things greater than herself, love, God, relationships and change.  

Ricco V

Instruments:

I'm a native of Jackson, MS were my love for music initially began. I began trumpet studies at the age of 15 under Mr. James A. Donald and Mr. Robert Robinson. I am a 1993 graduate of W.H. Lanier High School where I continued musical studies under Dr. Fulton E. Caston. While at Lanier, I was active in marching band (trumpet, mellophone section leader and saxophone overseer), jazz band (piano and trumpet), concert band (trumpet and French Horn) and student conductor. In addition to excelling during state solo and ensemble competitions, I was chosen 2 years in a row for District All-City High School Concert Band (8th chair trumpet and 2nd chair French Horn). I was awarded musical scholarships to Jackson State University and Mississippi Valley State University. While at Jackson State I studied marching band under the direction of Dr. Lewis Liddell and orchestra under Dr. London Branch; at Mississippi Valley State I studied under Mr. Lawrence Horn (woodwind) Mr. Kenneth Milton (trumpet), Mr. Leonard Tramiel (marching band), Dr. Lawrence Goldman (piano), the late Dr. Orlando Moss (voice and concert choir) and Dr. Sandra Scott (gospel show choir).

I'm a spirited passionate instructor who loves teaching students. As a 2009 Bethel College graduate with a Bachelor's in music education, I value education and seek to inspire my students. I've had the opportunity to play all over the world and meet wonderful and gifted musicians. I'm also a composer. I believe it is never too early or late to pursue the dream of becoming a skilled musician.

More Information About Piano Lessons

If purchasing an acoustic piano is not an option, we recommend that students look to buy a keyboard or digital piano for their lessons and practice. When buying a keyboard or digital piano, look to purchase one with 61 or more keys, as well as one with weighted hammer action. Having more keys, as well as weighted keys will most resemble the responsiveness and feel of an acoustic piano. Typically, keyboards are a cheaper option, they take up less space, are portable and can be played with headphones. Some of the most popular brands of keyboard or digital piano are Yamaha, Roland and Casio.
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. Students vary in ability from beginner to advanced, and naturally have different lessons requirements for each stage of their development. Put broadly, 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. Intermediates will start to take these concepts further, but learning different chords variations, such as diminished, augments, slash and 7th chords, as well as improving their speed and playing more complex compositions. Advanced students can develop playing skills such as glissando, improv and working with different piano modes, such as Dorian, Mixolydian and Aeolin. They may also like to study a specific genre - usually Jazz or Blues piano.
"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!
