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

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.
Students at different levels of their piano playing will require different aspects of piano playing to be covered during their lessons. Beginners will start out learning the basics, intermediates will be applying the foundations to more complex compositions and advanced players will want to hone a few specific skills or styles. The basic things that beginner students will learn are things such as; learning the notes of the piano, posture and playing technique, scales and chords. At this level, students will learn simple scales and chords, such as major and minor chords, and start to put some of the basic techniques into practice via simple songs. Intermediate players will work on more exotic chords and playing such as diminished chords, 7th chords and applying these things to more challenging compositions. Advanced players can improve sight reading, improvisational abilities or work on genre specific techniques, such as Jazz or Blues. Throughout, students can develop their musical ear, reading and theory.
"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 is a great first instrument for children who have never studied music before. Our instructors specialize in teaching younger children, and will develop an individual lesson plan for your child. The youngest age that we recommend starting piano lessons is age 4. The instructor will be able to teach your child to read music, beginning music theory and musician skills, and how to develop a love for playing the instrument.
