Featured Plano Piano Teachers

Lou M

Instruments:

I started playing at about the age of three. My father was a drummer who played semi-professionally part time. I would accompany him to rehearsals and gigs. I would occasionally sub for him starting at the age of six or seven. He also coached the school band that I played in. Once out of high school, I studied with Henry Adler,who authored Buddy Rich's snare drum book, and then jazz and big band drummer Sonny Igoe. Although I was already gigging, I was very much interested in Big band, Jazz, and Fusion and wanted to sharpen my skills in reading charts and improvisation. I could not have asked for a better teacher than Sonny, who I consider my mentor. During these years of study I was gigging and recording with everyone I could. I studied music theory, guitar, and piano with several of the fine musicians I met along the way. Since then my on the job training has spread across all styles of music; rock, blues, jazz, fusion, theater, and playing with a number of big bands, including several years of touring. I also ran my own band for several years, as well as writing and arranging for other artists.  

Robyn R

Instruments:

I have been a musician almost my whole life, starting out as a singer in a children's church choir when I was five. I started playing cello in the fourth grade through the public school system in California. I am classically trained, but I love all different styles of music. One of my strengths as a string player is improvisation. I have played with many different pop, rock, and folk bands over the years and that's the kind of music I enjoy playing the most. I teach from age 8 up and while I love teaching all ages, I especially love teaching adult beginners. My personal philosophy is that it's never too late to learn! I currently work as a full-time Academic Librarian, and teach music on nights and weekends.

Damian G

Instruments:

I'm a passionate and motivated piano instructor who loves working with students and sharing my love of music. I graduated from the University of North Texas with a degree in Jazz Studies. In just eight years, I've performed at many venues across the country from Orlando, FL to the respected jazz clubs of Dallas, Ft. Worth, and Austin. I've had the opportunity to study with many distinguished teachers from all over the world, learning various teaching methods over the course of nine years. 

Abbie F

Instruments:

I have been involved in music for as long as I can remember, singing in church choirs and leading contemporary worship.  I graduated from McMurry University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Piano Performance in 2004.  Having decided that performing was not my #1 passion I then pursued a Masters of Music degree, specializing in Music Therapy, from Colorado State Univeristy.  I have been a professional music therapist for the past 6 years, working with children and adolescents with developmental disabilities as well as mental health populations.

Gayla M

Instruments:

Ever since I was first starting piano lessons I knew I was to share my gift. As I started college my desire was not just play to share my gift but to teach as well. My passion is to pass on the ability to express onesself through music whether it be flute or piano. It gives me great joy to see my students excel and the "light bulb come on" as they progress in their playing ability.

More Information About Piano Lessons

As students will need to practice the content taught during their lessons, they will need to invest in a digital piano or a keyboard. There are a number of different keyboards on the market, however we suggests looking to buy one with 61 keys or more. Keyboards with weighted action keys are most like that of a real piano, and are recommended. Keyboards are often a cheaper and more convenient option that digital pianos or a real piano, as they can be transported around and played using headphones. That said, if buying an acoustic piano is within your budget, it will provide the most satisfying learning experience.
In home lessons are what 90% of our students request. Not only does this provide a convenient means to study music, but we also notice no difference in the quality of lessons done in home or in studio. They are typically structured the same. The main benefit of in-home lessons is the reduction in travel time to another location, and additionaly the student may be able to focus better in your own home since they are familiar with it. Piano lessons in the home offer a practical choice for your family for learning the skill of playing a musical instrument.
All students start their lessons at different levels of experience and with different aims and goals in mind. For beginner students who are new to the piano, lessons will be devised to give students the fundamentals of good piano playing. Students will learn the correct posture, hand position and fingering techniques for playing scales and chords. Students can develop these skills through practising scales, arpeggios and simple melodies using both hands. For advanced students, they will cover more intricate skills, such as creating runs and fills to add interest and variation to their playing, to develop their repertoire of pieces they can play and to develop their sight reading. Some students may have a specific genre that they are interested in learning, such as jazz piano. Students will learn the musical theory and techniques that underly a host of musical genres. Musika teachers are able to recommend books or specific areas of additional study that they feel will advance each individual student and help to achieve their goals.
In many ways adult learns have an advantage over young students. Adults have better self-discipline with regards to practice, a more patient and have higher levels of concentration. This allows them to develop the basic skills at a reasonably quick rate. Learning the piano is also a great way of remaining mental active during adulthood, and helps students to improve their hand-eye co-ordination and develop a critical ear. Learning to play the piano in adulthood can be beneficial health-wise, is a great way of harnessing creativity and stimulating the brain as can be immensely satisfying when achieving set goals.
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.
