  I love teaching students of all ages a variety of instruments and styles...from 3 year old twins taking piano lessons to an 85 year old woman taking organ lessons.  Each lesson is exciting discovering what we can learn together. I have toured all over the U.S throughout my life and am a singer/songwriter in the process of recording my 9th CD. I created an international tour that continuea every year.. I have taught students that are Billboard Music's Top 10 artists, Grammy Winners and American Music Award Winners,  American Idol top 50, known child stars and actors on major TV Shows and sitcoms. 

James G

Instruments:

I grew up in Indianapolis. While in high school, I studied Classical Clarinet with Achille Rossi of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. My interest at this early stage of my career was and still is in Classical Music. I went on to play with many of the All-City and All-State Orchestras.After high school, my interest in jazz began to blossom. I went on to attend Berklee College of Music in Boston, where I was a Performance Major and earned my four year professional performance certificate, studying all aspects of jazz: composition, arranging, and performance. I studied Clarinet with Andre Lizotte (Principal Clarinetist with the Boston Opera Company), Improvisational techniques for Tenor Saxophone and Flute with Joe Viola (Woody Herman), Composition with James Williams (Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers) and Paul Schmiling, who is the Dean of Composition at Berklee College of Music and Pianist of the Late Great Sarah Vaughn, and arranging with Herb Promeroy.

Ralph combines teaching in a variety of settings with professional-level performance and compositional skills.  He teaches classical and popular music for both piano and violin.  Through study and practice, his students acquire a deeper appreciation of music, personal enrichment and the enhancement of their musical skills. He teaches all ages and all skill levels.  He teaches in the student's home, not in a studio.  

Jennifer F

Instruments:

Hi! My name is Jennifer. I just graduated with my masters in music from the University of Redlands. I received my bachelor's degree from the University of Louisiana at Monroe. Through my college career, I was able to perform in many musical productions. Some of these roles include: Yvonne in Miss Saigon (Louisiana Lyric Opera), Mother in Hansel and Gretel (University of Louisiana at Monroe), Erma in Anything Goes (University of Louisiana at Monroe), and Euridice in Orfeo ed Euridice (University of Redlands). There are many performance coming up this year, also!    During my time in Undergrad, I had the opportunities to study abroad for two summers. I was accepted into University of Miami's Salzburg program (2009), and the following summer did Westminster Choir College's Florence Voice Seminar (2010). Throughout both of these experiences, I was able to work with world renowned teachers and coaches. These programs helped me grow as a teacher and a performer.   I am a member of NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing)   With the experience I have, I hope to start teaching you someday!

More Information About Piano Lessons

For students just starting out, a keyboard or digital piano is a great entry level alternative to a real acoustic piano. We suggest trying to buy a keyboard with 88 keys. Keyboards with a weighted hammer action are recommended as their touch response and general feel will be most similar to that of an acoustic piano. If it is at all possible, consider buying an acoustic piano - upright pianos are less space consuming - as this will provide students with a greater level of satisfaction during their practice time. Popular keyboard brands include Yamaha, Casio and Roland.
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.
Adults take up piano lessons for a number of different reasons. Some people want to reintroduce themselves to the instrument having once played it in the past, while others are looking for a new hobby or just to learn a new skill for fun! Whatever the reason, there are major benefits to learning the piano during adulthood. Learning piano technique can help retain fine motor skills and co-ordination, it can keep the mind sharp due to the complex thought processes and has shown to be good for preserving your hearing. Learning to play the piano can also be therapeutic, and is a great stress reliever.
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.
