Stan K

Instruments:

Originally from Texas, Stan began his music education at an early age, studying piano with his father who was a professional jazz pianist.  As a child his musical interests were greatly diverse, but he fell in love with jazz saxophone in high school.  At age sixteen he began to play professionally and these early musical experiences led him to a career in music.  He enrolled in Texas State University in San Marcos Texas and earned a B.A in Music Performance in 2001 studying saxophone with Dr. John Mills, a highly successful studio woodwind player, and piano with James Polk, former musical director for The Ray Charles Orchestra.  It was during this time that Stan started giving private lessons at his former high school in New Braunfels, Texas.  He moved to Austin and began private teaching at two high schools, Westlake and Round Rock and had many successful students.  He also began to teach adults at this time whom he often met at his performances. In 2006, he moved to Baltimore and taught flute at Cockeysville Middle school as well as clarinet and saxophone for a company called Music and Arts.  Also at this time, he was appointed as the full time music instructor at The Art and Drama Therapy Institute in Washington D.C., a private school for adults with developmental disabilities.  This experience greatly expanded his understanding of how to better connect with students and to convey more than just the musical notation on the page to his students. In 2008, as his performance career accelerated, he moved to New York.  While recording two albums for Sunnyside Records and touring the globe, he joined Musika and has taught extensively for them adults and children, saxophone, piano, clarinet and flute.

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.
Musika offers customized one-on-one music lessons in your home - a smart and simple solution for busy parents and students. The convenience of in-home lessons allows you to save time without having to transport your child to class, allows your child to maximize their busy schedule, and provides a safe and familiar environment in which to learn.
The content of each lesson is determined by the ability and experience level of each individual student. 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. Intermediate players can start to increase their playing speed in order to perform runs, fills and solos, they can broaden their chord playing to things like augmented chords, diminished chords, they develop their sight reading, music theory - such as time signatures - and applying these skills to more complex compositions. Advanced players may want to study a particular genre or composer. Pianists who enjoy Classical music may like to study the compositions of Bach or Mozart, or maybe develop their Jazz or Blues playing. Teachers can also help prepare students for exam, auditions, performances or recitals.
Taking piano lessons as an adult is a great way to learn a new skill and have fun at the same time. Our instructors can help you learn from the very basic level if you are a beginner, or if you are an advanced player they can help you refine your skills. Adult lessons will focus on learning the technique of the instrument, including how to read music, chords, and learning repertoire
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.
