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).

Grady H

Instruments:

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. 

Hong M

Instruments:

I am a very responsible teacher and wonderful teacher, since I could dedicate my knowledge to students to really help them make progress. Many methods are  originated from my playing experiences and feelings. Therefore, based on the professional knowledge, I always tell students my real feeling to practice and play.It will help them directly get the right way very quickly! I graduated from the University of Michigan a famous music school in United States. for Master Degree in Piano Performance with Full Graduate Fellowship (it is very competitive), and I got the Full Graduate Teaching Assistant from University of Memphis for DMA degree. I got excellent training not just playing, but also pedagogy. I believe that I am very competent to do a wonderful piano teacher:)

More Information About Piano Lessons

The best instrument to get would be an upright or baby grand piano. However, if your finances are limited we suggest looking into a digital keyboard. Go with the best quality keyboard that you can afford. We suggest a keyboard with weighted keys so that there is additional resistance on the keys than a toy piano. Most digital keyboards start at 65 keys, and go up to a full size 88 keys. You have to consider which keyboard would fit best in your home and your budget. A beginning student should get the keyboard before or immediately after beginning lessons, so that they may begin practicing as soon as the lessons commence.
Musika offers one-on-one, in-home guitar lessons that are designed specifically for each individual student. Whether your lesson takes place in the studio or at home, students will get the exact same lesson content, with the only difference being the location. Parents will find home guitar lessons a much more convenient option for their child, as it saves the time and costs of transporting their children to and from the studio. Younger students will find that learning to play the guitar in the comfort of their own homes greatly benefits their development as they are learning in a supportive, secure and familiar environment.
All students start their lessons at different levels of experience and with different aims and goals in mind. 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. Students can develop these skills through practising scales, arpeggios and simple melodies using both hands. For advanced students, they will cover more intricate skills, such as creating runs and fills to add interest and variation to their playing, to develop their repertoire of pieces they can play and to develop their sight reading. Some students may have a specific genre that they are interested in learning, such as jazz piano. Students will learn the musical theory and techniques that underly a host of musical genres. Musika teachers are able to recommend books or specific areas of additional study that they feel will advance each individual student and help to achieve their goals.
Many older students are fulfilling a long standing ambition by taking piano lessons. Some students may have had lessons when they were younger and want to re-learn and others are simply looking for a new hobby. Whatever the aim or reason, there are many benefits to piano lessons for older students. Learning the piano can keep you mentally active, help maintain dexterity, improve your hearing and stimulate the brain in a creative way. Older students can develop basic technique and music theory quite quickly, as their concentration, thinking skills and self-discipline are more advanced than that of children.
Children are recommended to start piano lessons no earlier than age 4 or 5. The attention span and personality of the child are something to consider when thinking of taking lessons. Even if your child has no evident musical inclinations, piano lessons offer a great option for introducing your child to music. During their lessons children will learn how to read music, fundamentals of musicianship and sight reading, music theory techniques, and ear training.
