Featured Montclair Piano Teachers

Anola D

Instruments:

In 2006, I graduated from Elon University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Music Education. My primary instrument is the piano, but I am also a vocalist. I have a true passion for music and I'm thankful that I am able to do something that I love everyday. If my mother did not encourage me to stick it out with piano lessons 20 years ago I would not be where I am today!!!

I am a very enthusiastic and educated instructor who loves teaching students about music. In 2004, I graduated from Berklee College of Music with a dual-Bachelor's Degree and have been teaching privately since 1998. I have been performing since age 8 and have had the pleasure of playing and teaching internationally.

Aida K

I'm a very passionate and motivated instructor.I love to work, share my love of music with my students, and make them understand, as well as appreciate the value of the music world.

Yvonne M

Instruments:

I am a fun-spirited teacher that maintains structure to every lesson and I have a passion for teaching students of all ages how to play the piano. I started playing the piano about 25 years ago and I began teaching about 12 years ago. I performed in many recitals and guild auditions as a student, and in college I began to perform at Open Mics, at weddings and then dinner music at restaurants. I was a National Guild of Piano Teachers Member from 2006 to 2008 and prepared several students to perform in guild auditions. I have recorded songs that I have written in different studios and enjoy the performance aspect of learning songs. I encourage students to perform in recitals too if they so desire.

I am a graduate of the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, where I studied viola performance with Atar Arad. While pursuing my degree, I studied violin and viola pedagogy with Mimi Zweig and Brenda Brenner and taught as part of the world-renowned Indiana University String Academy.  Additionally, in the summer of 2012, I attended the IAM Suzuki Summer Institute, where I recieved teaching certification for Suzuki violin level 1.  This upcoming summer, I plan to attend the Japan-Seattle Suzuki Summer Institute, where I will recieve training for Suzuki violin level 2.  This past fall I moved to Maryland, where I completed my first year of a Master’s degree in viola performance at the University of Maryland.  I study with Katherine Murdock.

More Information About Piano Lessons

Most students start out with a keyboard or digital piano. We recommend a full size keyboard with 88 weighted keys - weighted keyboards will have a touch response similar to a real piano. However, if purchasing a real piano is in your budget, we think that a real acoustic piano will provide you and the student with the highest level of satisfaction during practice time.
One-on-one piano lessons straight from the comfort of your own home is a great way to learn to play the piano. 90% of our students choose to take lessons from home, mostly due to the convenience of not having to make travel arrangements both to and from their lessons. This is great for parents and students with busy schedules. The content of home lessons is exactly the same as studio lessons, however, you will need to have a keyboard or piano at your home. Home lessons provide the best learning environment, as it is a comfortable, familiar surrounding for students to learn in.
As piano lessons are customized to the needs of each individual student, we are able to better help you to achieve your goals. Beginner students may just want to learn an instrument out of interest and for fun - so the basics will be covered to get you up and running. This will include music theory and technical exercises, such as hand position, fingering and playing scales and chords. Intermediate students may be working towards an exam, recital or performance, so will cover playing, performance and stylistic techniques such as legato, staccato, glissando, sight reading, exploring harmonics and working on speed - runs, fills and solos. Other topics that may be covered in your piano lessons are things like piano modes, expanding your repertoire, developing improvisation and jamming skills and studying the various types of genre-based playing techniques and styles, such as Jazz, Ragtime, Blues, Rock 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.
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.
