Featured New lenox Piano Teachers

Monika W

Instruments:

I am an accomplished musician and artist with an uncanny ability to understand what children need and empathize with them. I have been learning music since age of 6. I have been taught piano, its techniques, and style, as well as music history from wonderful and talented musicians from all over Europe. I graduated from Art School in Poland. I have been performing in many European countries like Poland or Germany since I was 10.

Ruth K

Instruments:

I am an experienced teacher who loves working with students and sharing my love of music with them.  Over the past three decades I have taught in the schools, for a performing arts school, through studios, eventually owning my own studio, and locally concertized as both a soloist and an ensemble performer.  Groups and students under my direction have won numerous awards and honors and concertized in many venues.  I am blessed to have many of my former students working as professionals in the music industry now and still keep in touch with them and their families.   

Serena P

Instruments:

I am a passionate and enthusiastic actress, singer, dancer, pianist, and teaching artist here in Chicago. I am a graduate of the Bachelor of Fine Arts Musical Theater program at the University of the Arts, where I realized my love of teaching while tutoring struggling music theory students. I have been performing and teaching ever since I graduated in various musicals and plays throughout the city. 

Irene Z

Instruments:

I am a second generation pianist and piano teacher who began lessons at the age of 4 under M.M. DePaul graduate and longtime piano teacher, Kathryn, my mother. My musical studies were continued in college at the University of IL at Chicago, and after graduating, at the American Conservatory of Music, where I enrolled in private Masters classes for 7 years (jazz piano, improvisation & other styles). I have over 25 years of international piano and piano/vocal performance experience, which includes the opportunity to perform in Okinawa, Japan at the exquisite 5 star Manza Beach Resort Hotel for 4 months. I have taught piano to children age 5 - adults for 20 years. Teaching is a great joy and inspiration that enriches my life musically, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually. My ultimate goal is to give my students a life-long passion for making music. I maintain both an active performance and teaching schedule, am a member of Music Teachers National, Chicago Area Music Teachers Association, Piano Teachers Federation and continue my music education through attending seminars, workshops and through taking private lessons.

Matthew U

Instruments:

As a kid, I grew up listening to all types of music, from soul, jazz, hip-hop, R&B, contemporary, and rock.  My mom introduced me to my first piano at the age of 6 and I was hooked.  Music became a part of my soul.  I had great teachers that continued to help me develop my skills and challenge me.  I started in classical, and soon found myself getting into jazz and contemporary; I was growing as a musician.  Music was becoming a passion.  While my friends were saving for a car, I was saving for a Yamaha Motif XF8.  I would spend hours in my basement producing and creating music.  I believe music can take you to places with no barriers and restrictions.  As the philosopher Nietzsche so appropriately stated, "Without music, life would be a mistake."

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.
Music lessons in your home offer a convenient option to learning music! Most of our students request in home lessons for this reason. As long as you have a piano or keyboard in your home, then you should be all set to start your lessons! Children who have never played an instrument before may feel more comfortable studying in their own home, as it may be less intimidating than going somewhere else. In home lessons decrease the time and gas money spent traveling to a different location.
Musika piano lessons can be tailored to suit students of all abilities, whether they are beginners, intermediates or advanced level players. For beginners, the basics will be taught. This will include learning the correct posture, hand position and fingering technique. It will include learning the notes and scales of the piano, learning basic chords and chord progressions, developing the musical ear and learning to apply these things to simple songs. Intermediate players can start to increase their playing speed in order to perform runs, fills and solos, they can broaden their chord playing to things like augmented chords, diminished chords, slash chords and so on... They can work on their sight reading, music theory - such as learning different time signatures - and applying these skills to more complex songs. For advanced players, they will be adding an edge to their playing, such as improvisational skills, repertoire and genre-specific work, like learning Jazz or Romantic piano.
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.
