Featured Sammamish Piano Teachers

Josie Z

Instruments:

Born in Toronto, Canada, Josie had her first piano lesson at the tender age of 3. That was the start of her lifelong passion not only for music, but for teaching, learning, and creativity.  She took private piano lessons until university, where she chose to study music.  Although her major was in classical piano performance, Josie also studied ragtime, blues, and jazz piano along with improvisation and extensive music theory.  Not content with solely learning the piano, she also dabbled in tabla, gamelan, violin, and guitar. After relocating to Seattle in the fall of 2011, Josie is excited to be living in a new city and expanding her student base here.

Conan M

Instruments:

I teach not only how to play the chosen instrument, but also about its history and its role across musical styles.  Music is fun, and while hard work and practice are important and essential, so is enjoyment of music and enjoyment of one's instrument. I also strive to include music related field trips such as to opera dress rehearsals, to music related sites such as the EMP or to other local performances. Lessons can be held in the student's home or in my studio.

Erling I

Instruments:

I'm a gentle person who believes in exposing my students to the best music, and bringing out of them the music they have within. The idea is to ease their frustrations, not add to them.  As long as the student actually tries, I feel confident they will enjoy the wxperience and learn a great deal.  Music is one of life's greaat pleasures and worth every bit of the effort required to do it well.

Jeanne K

Instruments:

Music is my life, and I love to share my passion with others! I graduated from Berklee College of Music in 1997, majoring in Music Production and Engineering and Voice. I have been producing music for 20 years, and I have been teaching voice and piano off and on for 18 years. I am a singer songwriter, and I play with my band every other week. Some of my other current paid jobs include producing cultural music, singing back-up vocals for a local artist, and teaching for Tacoma Public Schools.

Geoffrey W

Instruments:

I'm a passionate and enthusiatic instructor that loves sharing the gift of music with my students. I have been working professionally as a musician since I was thirteen years old playing in acoustic acts, jazz big bands, cover bands, original rock acts, jazz combos and doing solo classical guitar performances. I've toured, done countless studio sessions and have played in orchestra pits for musicals. One of my favorite performances was with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Institute Orchestra in 1987 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.  My other passion is composing and producing in every style imaginable and I have music in shows with NBC Universal and A&E as well as countless corporate and industrial projects. I love integrating my compositional backhround into my intrument lessons when appropriate to give my students a broader knowledge of how to use their instrument(s) and possibly compose themselves. I'm very patient and comfortable working with the novice to the most advanced players.

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.
Piano lessons in your home offer a convenient option for learning to play an instrument. 90% of our students take their lessons in their home, and this is a practical and time-saving way to learn the technique of the instrument. Think of all the time you can save by not having to transport your student to a class every week! In-home lessons are structured in the same way as a studio lesson, and in addition, a younger student may feel more comfortable at an in-home lesson, as they are already familiar with the surroundings.
As piano lessons are customized to the needs of each individual student, we are able to better help you to achieve your goals. Beginner students may just want to learn an instrument out of interest and for fun - so the basics will be covered to get you up and running. This will include music theory and technical exercises, such as hand position, fingering and playing scales and chords. Intermediate students may be working towards an exam, recital or performance, so will cover playing, performance and stylistic techniques such as legato, staccato, glissando, sight reading, exploring harmonics and working on speed - runs, fills and solos. Other topics that may be covered in your piano lessons are things like piano modes, expanding your repertoire, developing improvisation and jamming skills and studying the various types of genre-based playing techniques and styles, such as Jazz, Ragtime, Blues, Rock or Classical piano.
Studying piano as an adult is a fun and educational experience. You will learn the technique of the instrument, and various selections of repertoire tailored to your needs and goals. Whether you are a beginner or advanced student, our instructor can help you improve your skills on the instrument. Many of our adult students enjoy playing their music at local clubs and venues in their communities.
Piano is a great first instrument for children who have never studied music before. Our instructors specialize in teaching younger children, and will develop an individual lesson plan for your child. The youngest age that we recommend starting piano lessons is age 4. The instructor will be able to teach your child to read music, beginning music theory and musician skills, and how to develop a love for playing the instrument.
