Featured Olathe Piano Teachers

Esther Y

Instruments:

I am a classically-trained pianist with over two decades of private teaching experiences. I love teaching children and being around them makes me exciting. 

Victor P

Instruments:

I am a passionate, innovative and creative musician with vast experience as a teacher, performer and producer. Music has been my life's work and joy since as far back as I can remember. I began my formal musical training at 6 years of age, and in 2004 I graduated from the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music with a Doctor of Music degree in Operation of Early Music Programs (Historical Performance).  I also hold an MM in Historical Musicology from Florida State University (1997), and a B.A. in Music from Marylhurst University, Marylhurst, OR (1993).  I have studied and performed most major genres, from the large, classical concert stage, to small clubs and music venues, to open-air festivals both public and private; "From Bach to Rock," if you will. I have also studied various non-Western musics in depth, most notably Northern Indian Hindustani classical music. The different musical perspectives these cultural studies have provided informs and expands the flexibility I like to have in fitting the lesson to the student.  Music is pure joy to me, and beyond the nuts and bolts of musical technique, it's that joy I wish more than anything to share with my students.

Chelsea C

Instruments:

I'm a woodwind and beginning piano teacher who enjoys helping people discover a passion for playing music. In 2013, I graduated from Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) with a Master of Science degree in Music Technology. In 2012, I graduated from the University of Indianapolis with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music with a concentration in Technology and Recording. Before moving to Kansas in 2013, I performed at many places in Indianapolis with various types of groups, including jazz bands, jazz combos, wind ensembles, and orchestras. I have also had the wonderful opportunity to perform in Italy and Austria as a part of the University of Indianapolis Symphonic Wind Ensemble.

Eric T

Instruments:

I have been playing and writing music for 15 years. I began playing guitar when I was 15 years old, and throughout my high school career I played in several different bands. By the time I got to college I performed with a classic rock band and began studying music theory for piano. In Delta State Universities Interdisciplinary program I began to take in a lot of musical knowledge very quickly. I learned many tools including: songwriting, music production, audio recording, synthesis, piano, live sound, mixing and even took a film scoring class where we put music to video which is a lot of fun. Not only did I learn about midi and music industry standards, I also had the opportunity to work with really amazing artists. One of my professors Mike Lacopelli was the recording engineer for Parliament as well as ran live sound for Aretha Franklin for 8 years. Later in my college career I began playing synthesizer with a band and working for Delta State’s Studio. I also worked in their computer lab teaching music software programs to newer students; the software programs included: Logic, Pro Tools and Garage Band. I currently have my own home studio where I run Pro Tools. I perform in a rock band playing rhythm and lead guitar as well as some keyboard/ synthesizer work. We have played many benefit shows as well as paying gigs and we recently released an album that I engineered and produced. I love making music as well as learning and teaching. I love watching others as well as myself grow musically. With every new musical opportunity comes learning and it’s so fun and exciting to think of what is waiting.

D'Ann P

Instruments:

I have been a music teacher for 30 years and teach students beginning at preschool on up.  I taught my own 3 sons and now one is a composer/perfomer in voice, piano, violin, and guitar.  I teach both playing by ear and reading notes to beginners - my favorite level to teach.  I encourage parents to attend lessons so they can help practice at home, similar to the Suzuki method of training.

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.
Our teachers at Musika design their piano lessons around the needs and ability of each student. This means that lessons cater to a wide range of ability and experience levels, from those just starting to play the piano for the very first time, to students with already established skills and experience. For new learners, the aim is to get them playing simple songs as quickly as possible. To do so means teaching them the basics, such as scales, hand position, fingering technique, and chords. These are the essential skills for playing simple material. Beyond this, students can learn to develop their musical ear, sight read, read sheet music and chord charts, and general music theory. They will start to learn more complex chords and start applying them to more advanced compositions. Some students will already be excellent players, but want to develop particular skills, such as improvisational skills, or to study one specific type of piano playing, such as Blues or Classical 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.
