Featured Rumson Piano Teachers

Alyssa L

Instruments:

I'm a graduate of Syracuse University with a Bachelors degree in Music Industry and a Masters in Music Education. After graduation,I worked as a substitute music teacher in public schools. Currently, I am employed by Columbia Records and teach private clarinet, saxophone and piano lessons.

Conrad D

Instruments:

I was introduced to music early on by my parents. Being classically trained on the piano I started playing and writing songs at the tender age of seven. My early piano influences are Mozart, Beethoven and Gershwin amongst others. Growing up, I became even more influenced by Pop, R&B, Funk, and Rock artists from the likes of  Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and Prince. As a teenager in high school, I performed recitals and played in rock bands, and picked up the guitar and drums to broaden my music repertoire.

Loreto A

Instruments:

I am an active educator and performer in the North Jersey area. I teach K-6 elementary general music in Midland Park, NJ, which was recently recognized by NAMM as one of the "Best Communities for Music Education 2014." Although I am a classically trained soprano, I work on a variety of different literature with my voice and piano students, including folk songs, pop music, musical theater and of course, classical. I believe that well-rounded musicians make good musicians! I have been singing as a solo church cantor since the age of 12, and it has given me the opportunity to perform a wide range of sacred and classical repertoire in a variety of occasions, including weddings, masses and funerals. I love to play the piano, and the majority of my piano playing happens in classroom rehearsals and school performances. 

Sophia S

Instruments:

I am passionate about both teaching and performing. An active freelance flute and piccolo player, I love playing in symphonies and opera orchestras and have worked with conductors Pierre Vallet, Keith Chambers, and David Bernard among others. I particularly love the exhilaration of soaring above the orchestra on piccolo. I have performed at venues throughout the city including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and Symphony Space. I am Suzuki certified and takes Shin’ichi Suzuki's philosophy to heart. I believe that, by taking flute lessons, every child can learn confidence, discipline, and the joy of self-expression through music. I offer both Suzuki and traditional flute lessons and believe that it is my job as an educator to tailor my teaching style to the varying needs, interests and goals of each individual student. I received my Bachelor's in Music in Flute Performance from New York University, graduating summa cum laude in 2007. My primary teachers include Keith Underwood and Kathleen Nester.

Matthew S

Instruments:

I started playing trumpet in grade school and was in the marching band the first year of high school. I then switched to playing upright bass in the orchestra. This led to me being a part of the jazz band and playing instrumentals for school musicals. Upon graduation time, I received the gold medal for music performance in strings. I was also an AP music theory student. After, I pursued a bachelor's degree in music and took education courses. I have tutored music theory and given instrument lessons, but they were always self employed or from the university. I wish to help others make music an enjoying part of their lives, as it is in mine.

More Information About Piano Lessons

A keyboard or digital piano is a perfectly acceptable alternative to an acoustic piano for the purposes of lessons and practice. The major advantages of keyboards are the cheap price, portability and the possibility of playing with headphones, which means being able to practice without disturbing others. When buying a keyboard, look to get one with a weighted hammer action and as many keys as possible - a minimum of 61 should suffice. Weighted keys with most resemble the touch sensitivity of a real piano. The most common brands are Casio, Korg and Yamaha. If possible, look to purchase an upright or bay grand piano.
Music lessons in your home offer a convenient option to learning music! Most of our students request in home lessons for this reason. As long as you have a piano or keyboard in your home, then you should be all set to start your lessons! Children who have never played an instrument before may feel more comfortable studying in their own home, as it may be less intimidating than going somewhere else. In home lessons decrease the time and gas money spent traveling to a different location.
Piano lessons are usually structured around a series of method books which are recommended by the teacher, and can be purchased at a local music store or online. Lessons for a beginner usually start with familiarizing the student with the piano as well as beginner level technique. This will include learning the notes on the piano, and learning basic scales, like major and minor scales. Beginners will start by learning how to play scales using the correct finger techniques with both bands until they develop their speed and co-ordination. Eventually students will start off by playing simple melodies - often nursery rhymes - that utilize and put the fingering techniques into practice. Students will also learn the various types of chord, from simple major and minor chords, through to 7th chords, slash chords and diminished chords. Students will also develop their sight reading and music theory knowledge throughout their lessons.
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.
