Monica G

Instruments:

I'm a performing artist and music teacher. I received my Bachelors and Masters degree in music at Boston's New England Conservatory, where I was a member of the jazz, classical, and third-stream departments. I also spent 8 years in Berlin, Germany, singing opera and performing in musical theater. I've always enjoyed working with kids, especially introducing them to music through piano, language, movement, role-playing, and singing. But I also thrive teaching adults, whether it be professional singers looking for some tips, or passionate hobby singers looking to impress their friends at the next karaoke party.

Matthew R

Instruments:

I started playing when I was 7 and just really haven't stopped. I have always enjoyed playing the piano and also teaching the piano. As a performer I have played in a wide variety of styles and ensembles from giving Solo Recitals to Rock Bands, and playing in Big Bands to Musical Theater Orchestras. After earning my Masters degree in Piano Performance I taught for several years and then began to perform on Cruise ships as the MD of the show band for the next 6.5 years. I enjoy all kinds of music, and I also enjoy teaching others how to play the piano and to understand music at a deeper level. As a teacher, I have taught all ages and also all levels, and always enjoy the opportunity to work with someone to begin or continue their musical journey.

Andrea P

Instruments:

I am a passionate instructor and will do anything to communicate with my students and help them achieve their goals. I firmly believe that education is a privilege, not a job. I feel lucky to be able to do what I love to do as work every day and share this passion with my students. I graduated recently with a BA in Spanish and a Minor in piano; I loved the musical education system so much that I decided to return to pursue a BA in Piano Performance as well, which is currently in progress. I believe that musical education is essential to round a person in all areas of life; cognitively, emotionally, and spiritually.

More Information About Piano Lessons

We recommend that students get either a full size piano, or a weighted keyboard for their lessons. It is very important to set up a practice schedule every day. You can purchase a basic keyboard at a local music store or an electronic store. Some students may also wish to rent a piano if they do not wish to invest in buying one right away. Digital keyboards offer a good choice for the beginning student because they are portable and easily stored in your home. Keyboards will start at 65 keys at the smallest amount and increase to a full size keyboard of 88 keys. The most common brands of keyboard are Casio, Yamaha, and Korg.
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.
There is no specific teaching method that all Musika teachers adhere to. All students will have lessons customized to their needs and goals as lessons progress. If there is a specific teaching style you are looking for, we will keep that in mind as we make your teacher match. Many teachers will have a few method books that they use for lessons, which will include exercises and techniques for practicing. All lessons will cover aspects of learning notes, proper technique, ear training, and how to read music.
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
Our recommended starting age for piano is 4 or 5, with students capable of playing the keys properly and with sufficient strength in the fingers and hands. Young students also should have begun learning to count and to read. No matter what the age may be, the piano is an excellent introduction to the fundamentals of music, including music theory and basic composition techniques.
