Featured Naugatuck Piano Teachers

Lawrence R

Instruments:

I was born in Winchester Indiana on 9/9/1954, but raised in Middletown Ohio. Trumpet was my major instrument which I focused on in obtaining my Bach. Degree in Music Ed. from Miami University of Ohio, and Strings were my focus. I started and ran a string program in Branford CT since 1985, and, this is where I still live. I have a total of 23 years in public schools. I got my first string teaching position in Oconee Co. SC I studied Cello for 4 years at Kent State University from 1973-74, which is why I focused on string teaching.  I enjoy composing music, and arranging music, for fellow musicians which has become my passion, which I now do through the music notation program - Finale 20006b, and the sequencer program Pro Tools7M Powered, thru which I run thru my MacBook Pro, and my M audio I/o Interface board.

Ryan D

Instruments:

I have been exposed to both Suzuki and traditional styles of teaching and can be flexible with both very young, beginning students as well as older more advanced players. I have also worked with many young violin students and am able to teach early violin, viola and piano methods and technique.In terms of my basic teaching style I think of myself as teaching technique and basics, in addition to scales etc., through the music. I find that this not only helps students become enthusiastic about their instrument and music, but also helps one break through technical strides without losing gumption with robotic technical exercises.

Kendall A

Instruments:

I have been helping people find their musical "voice" and learn to play for over 30 years. I am a master of the acoustic guitar, and play rock, funk, Jazz and bluegrass/celtic. I majored in tenor saxophone in college and toured with the A Band. 

Juliana K

Instruments:

I, Ana, was born in a small town on the border of Quebec, Canada and Vermont, USA. At age 4, my mother began teaching me how to play piano. Since then, I've always enjoyed music. It's been my creative outlet. Throughout high school, I participated in competitions, concerts and master classes. After high school, I completed a two-year program at Vanier College, Canada in Classical Piano Performance. I've been teaching young children, teens and adults for 5+ years. Last year I left 18 students and my piano studio in Canada and move to CT to be with my husband. Now I'm looking to share my love of music with those around me here. Music is a part of everyone! We're never too old or too unlearned in music to express ourselves in this manner! I look forward to helping you become a better musician!

Woody H

Instruments:

Since 1996 I have been solely committed to a career in teaching and performing professionally. My Father was an amateur jazz pianist, my Grandmother, a professional opera singer prior to marriage.  My earliest memories came with a soundtrack: my Dads piano playing.  I studied privately both on piano (early) and guitar (later), starting somewhere in my fifth year. I always took advantage of musical opportunities afforded me at school whenever appropriate, whether that was a school musical, talent show, battle of the bands, jazz band or music elective.  More formal music education continued at Berklee College of Music, Boston, MA and further studies with the late pianist and author John Mehegan, Westport, CT

More Information About Piano Lessons

Keyboards are a convenient option for practice and lessons as they afford students the options of portability and the use of headphones for practice. They are also cheaper and more space-conscious than an acoustic piano. Look to buy a keyboard that has a minimum of 61 keys, and a weighted hammer action. This will ensure your keyboard closest resembles the playability of a real piano. The most popular brand are Roland, Yamaha and Korg. If it is possible, buying an acoustic piano will offer the most rewarding learning experience for students, and provides market resale value.
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.
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.
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.
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!
