Featured Occoquan Piano Teachers

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.

Susanna J

Instruments:

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.

Tissa K

Instruments:

  I discovered playing music as a youngster in middle school in Tallahassee, FL. I immediately associated myself with and took lessons from the best musicians I could find in my area, including the faculty at Florida State University. I later attended FSU and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Jazz Studies. I have since had the pleasure of joining the Modern Jazz Generation to perform at Jazz at Lincoln Center, Alys Stephens Hall in Birmingham in Alabama, and at the Savannah Music Festival. I have shows with my band later this year in Chicago, Vermont, and hopefully Washington DC. I spend much of my time in Washington DC teaching music and other subjects, as well as composing and practicing music.

Katrina K

Instruments:

I'm a dynamic, dedicated flutist who loves to perform and share that love with others. I hold degrees in flute performance from the Cleveland Institute of Music and have performed and taught extensively in the Cleveland and western New York areas. I also have a special interest in music theory and music history, having earned Early Music Performer's Certificates through the joint music program with Case Western Reserve University and tutored music theory at the Cleveland Institute of Music.

Brittany M

Instruments:

In 2013, I graduated from Shenandoah Conservatory with a Bachelor of Music in Music Education, with a focus in Choral/General Education.  Throughout college I actively performed in various types of ensembles such as contemporary acapella groups and small chamber ensembles, including solo performances.

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.
Taking piano lessons from the comfort of your own home is the most convenient way of learning to the play the instrument - all you need for your lessons is a piano or keyboard to play on! Home lessons remove the hassle of transporting your child to and from their lessons, and can be fitted around busy work schedules more readily. Whether the lesson takes place in-home or in the studio, the content remains the same. Home piano lessons are a particularly good option for younger students. It is a big advance for young students to learn in a familiar, comfortable and supportive environment.
Musika teachers do not adhere to one specific method for all their students. Most teachers will customize their lesson plans to the individual needs and skill level of the student. If you are looking for any specific teaching styles or methods to be used in your lessons, please let us know during the matching process and we can try to assign you to the teacher who will best suit your needs. Generally all lessons will cover topics focused on learning to read music, practice skills, music theory and musicianship, ear training, and rhythm skills.
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.
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!
