Featured Orange 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.

Lily S

Instruments:

Praised for her lyricism and rich, vibrant sound, Lily is a versatile trumpeter in New York City.  An accomplished orchestral player, chamber musician, and soloist, she has been a featured artist at venues including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and the United Nations.  In November, Lily will travel to Brazil to perform as a soloist and guest clinician at the Universidade Metodista de São Paulo.  Interested in expanding into new genres, she recently performed at Joe's Pub with Grammy Award-winning cabaret artist Lady Rizo and at KlezKanada, Canada’s largest annual festival of Yiddish culture and the arts. A seasoned orchestral player, Lily has appeared with ensembles including the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, American Symphony Orchestra, Brooklyn Philharmonic, and Long Island Philharmonic.  During the summer months, she has performed at the Aspen Music Festival, National Orchestral Institute, and Atlantic Music Festival as an orchestral fellow.  Some of Lily’s favorite orchestral moments include accompanying soloist Gil Shaham in his performance of Beethoven’s Violin Concerto and playing Gustav Mahler’s Sixth Symphony under the baton of James Conlon. Equally devoted to chamber music, Lily was a winner of the Lillian Fuchs Chamber Music Competition (2006) and performed with the Brooklyn Philharmonic Brass Quintet in their annual educational concert tour.  She has appeared with the Manhattan Brass Quintet and the DC Chamber Brass and has presented chamber music concerts at the Apollo Theater and the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola in New York City.  She can be heard on a recording with the Imperial Brass Band that features legendary jazz trumpeter Warren Vaché. Lily holds a Master of Music degree from the University of Maryland and a Bachelor of Music degree from Manhattan School of Music, where she was awarded the Carmine Caruso Scholarship for brass as well as the President’s Award Merit Scholarship.

More Information About Piano Lessons

We suggest students purchase a piano or keyboard for their lessons, as they will need to practice every day in order to develop their skills on the instrument. We recommend a keyboard with weighted keys, as this will feel most similar to an actual piano. An actual piano will have 88 keys, but most keyboards start from 65 keys and go up from there. Common keyboard brands found at music stores are Yamaha, Casio, and Korg. Many keyboard sets will come with a case, stand, headphones, and may even offer recording features for recording your own playing.
Piano lessons in your home offer a convenient option for learning to play an instrument. 90% of our students take their lessons in their home, and this is a practical and time-saving way to learn the technique of the instrument. Think of all the time you can save by not having to transport your student to a class every week! In-home lessons are structured in the same way as a studio lesson, and in addition, a younger student may feel more comfortable at an in-home lesson, as they are already familiar with the surroundings.
Our piano lessons take place in a one-on-one setting and are customized to the requirements of each individual student. Students vary in ability from beginner to advanced, and naturally have different lessons requirements for each stage of their development. Put broadly, beginners will cover such aspects to piano playing as; posture, hand positions, fingering technique, scales, chords and applying these things to simple songs. They will also start to develop their knowledge of music theory, reading chord charts and sheet music. Intermediates will start to take these concepts further, but learning different chords variations, such as diminished, augments, slash and 7th chords, as well as improving their speed and playing more complex compositions. Advanced students can develop playing skills such as glissando, improv and working with different piano modes, such as Dorian, Mixolydian and Aeolin. They may also like to study a specific genre - usually Jazz or Blues 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 is a great first instrument for children who have never studied music before. Our instructors specialize in teaching younger children, and will develop an individual lesson plan for your child. The youngest age that we recommend starting piano lessons is age 4. The instructor will be able to teach your child to read music, beginning music theory and musician skills, and how to develop a love for playing the instrument.
