Featured New lenox Piano Teachers

Angela P

Instruments:

I'm a passionate and energetic instructor who loves to prepare her students for performance opportunities.  In 2007, I earned my Master of Music in Vocal Performance from Northern Illinois University and earned my Bachelor of Arts at Millikin University in Decatur IL. Performing throughout the Chicago and Milwaukee metro areas have been precious experiences for me.  I have had the opportunity to sing at the House of Blues in Chicago as well as perform with the Chicago Comedy Company and Music by the Lake in Williams Bay, WI.

Kira T

Instruments:

I believe that teaching should be more about lighting a fire than filling up a vase. If I can motivate you by by making the journey of learning piano an exciting adventure, the rest will follow naturally. It’s a philosophy I’ve been applying for more than 25 years with great results.

Joshua P

Instruments:

I'm a passionate and motivated instructor who loves working with students and sharing my love of performance. In 2011, I graduated from the University of Wisconsin River Falls with a Bachelor of Science in Liberal Arts/Performance. Performing all over the world has been one of the greater experiences of my life as a musician, and I have had the opportunity to Conduct the World Vision Children's Choir in S. Korea and be a featured Tenor soloist in the summer music festival "Orvieto Musica" in Orvieto, Italy. 

Daniel B

Instruments:

I currently work as a teacher, singer, actor, and organist in Chicago. I'm teaching piano and electronic music courses full-time at Kenwood Academy, a CPS High School. I graduated from the Chicago College of Performing Arts with degrees in music education and vocal performance.  Apart from my teaching, I stay active as a performer in the Chicago music scene. I have completed vocal training programs with groups like Chicago Opera Theater and the College Light Opera Company (CLOC). I regularly appear in operas and store front theater productions. As a pianist/organist, I regularly play for church services and rehearse choirs. I'm particularly devoted to composing, producing and performing new art music.  I love to read, ride my bike, and teach new student-musicians!   

Walter J

Instruments:

I am a person who believes in teaching music to all ages. Through teaching I am hoping that I inspire students to follow their dreams on trying to achieve their goals in life. As a teacher I hope to gain the trust of my students by being the person that can help them progress forward in a chosen music career. I take pride in what I do. Hopefully I can encourage others to do the same.

More Information About Piano Lessons

Provided you do not have the space or budget to purchase an acoustic piano, such as an upright or baby grand, then a keyboard is a perfectly acceptable alternative. Keyboards with a weighted hammer action are the best option, as the key touch sensitivity is comparable to that of an acoustic piano. As a rule, more keys are better - at least 61 key pianos are advised. The most popular brands of keyboard are Casio, Roland and Yamaha and can be purchased from most musical instrument retailers. Keyboards offer great convenient due to their price, portability and headphones option.
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.
Piano lessons are usually structured around a series of method books which are recommended by the teacher, and can be purchased at a local music store or online. Lessons for a beginner usually start with familiarizing the student with the piano as well as beginner level technique. This will include learning the notes on the piano, and learning basic scales, like major and minor scales. Beginners will start by learning how to play scales using the correct finger techniques with both bands until they develop their speed and co-ordination. Eventually students will start off by playing simple melodies - often nursery rhymes - that utilize and put the fingering techniques into practice. Students will also learn the various types of chord, from simple major and minor chords, through to 7th chords, slash chords and diminished chords. Students will also develop their sight reading and music theory knowledge throughout their lessons.
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.
Our recommended starting age for piano is 4 or 5, with students capable of playing the keys properly and with sufficient strength in the fingers and hands. Young students also should have begun learning to count and to read. No matter what the age may be, the piano is an excellent introduction to the fundamentals of music, including music theory and basic composition techniques.
