Rachel S

Instruments:

I am a classically-trained singer and piano player  with over 10 years of private teaching experience.  I have performed in several recitals including the Early Boston Music Festival.  In addition, I have performed with sveral different choirs throughout the years. Though my specialty is classical and opera, I can aso teach Broadway, pop, and jazz styles as well.  I welcome all student levels from beginner to advance and my teaching philosophy is to tailor the lessons for every student in order to help them acheive their full potential. 

Rebecca T

Instruments:

I have been singing professionally for over 20 years in the opera world. I'm also very experienced in teaching all genres of music, not just classical. I also enjoy gardening. I have five students who will be singing at Carnegie Hall for the Festival of Fine Arts - three of them are students of mine from Musika!

Jocelyn C

Instruments:

I mainly teach Suzuki flute lessons, but I can also teach traditional flute lessons. I find that the Suzuki method provides a wonderfully organized curriculum that guarentees student success. I have taught in the public schools as a music teacher for General Music K-8, High School Band, High School Choir, and I ran a musical for students K-2. My interests in music are diverse and I seek to bring my joy and spirit to every student.

Sofia A

Instruments:

I've been a musician from a young age, with a focus on the keyboard, voice, and songwriting and composition. Currently a senior at Westminster Choir College as a pipe organist focusing on classical and choral music for the church, as well as conducting small choirs. I have a wide variety of interests, but one of my greatest joys is to teach whatever knowledge I'm able to give to a student. I do not believe talent is necessary to learn the art of music, it takes discipline and dedication and a lot of love. Developing a love of music, means developing a love of practice too! I love helping people realize the skills they already have, by giving them a chance to develop. If you have fingers, you can learn!

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.
Taking piano lessons from the comfort of your own home is the most convenient way of learning to the play the instrument. Finding the additional time out of a busy schedule to transport your child to and from their lessons can be difficult, making home lessons a convenient, time and money saving option. The only thing necessary for home lessons is a keyboard or piano to play on! There is no difference between the lesson content of studio or home lessons - only the location is different. Home lessons help provide a safe, familiar and comfortable learning environment for students.
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.
The piano is an easy instrument for beginners of all ages. We have adults who are total novices, some who haven't played their instrument in 10 years, and some who are more advanced students looking to take their skills to the next level. Our teachers have proven methods to get you the results you desire.
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.
