Jonathan E

Instruments:

I'm a passionate and motivated instructor who loves working with students and sharing my love of music! I graduated from Ole Miss in 2007 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism with minors in both Music and English and I graduated again in 2012 with a Master of Arts degree in Teaching English as a Second Language with a subfield in Music. I've played trombone since 1998 and have performed professionally since 2002 across the entire spectrum of genres and venues. I have had the opportunity to perform abroad in Thailand and Brazil with such groups/acts as the Bangkok Big Band, Eduardo Proenca, Peter Montalbano Septet, Diamante, and the FarUp Band. 

Teresa W

Instruments:

I am a highly motivated, hard-working, and outgoing individual.  I love people and believe that teaching music lessons is one the best ways to connect with students of all ages and develop a relationship with them.  I started learning piano in Kindergarten, began Saxophone in my 5th grade Band, and started tutoring other band students in 6th Grade.  In 7th Grade I earned scholarship to attend Illinois Summer Youth Music Camp at the University of Illinois.  The excellent education that I received at ISYM, proved to be a critical influence on my desire to succeed musically and academically.  I earned 14 scholarships for college and returned to The University of Illinois where I received my Bachelors in Music Education with Instrumental Specialization and became certified to teach Band, Choir, and Orchestra for Grades K-12.  Since then have taught students and groups of students ranging in age from 2 1/2 to 89.

More Information About Piano Lessons

The best instrument to get would be an upright or baby grand piano. However, if your finances are limited we suggest looking into a digital keyboard. Go with the best quality keyboard that you can afford. We suggest a keyboard with weighted keys so that there is additional resistance on the keys than a toy piano. Most digital keyboards start at 65 keys, and go up to a full size 88 keys. You have to consider which keyboard would fit best in your home and your budget. A beginning student should get the keyboard before or immediately after beginning lessons, so that they may begin practicing as soon as the lessons commence.
Musika offers piano lessons in the comfort of your home. Provided you have a piano or keyboard to practice, you have everything needed to start learning straight from home! Taking lessons in the home is a great way to save time and money travelling to your piano lessons. There is no difference in the content of the lessons, whether they take place at home or in the studio. Home piano lessons are a particularly good option for younger students. It is a big advance for young students to learn in a familiar, comfortable and supportive environment.
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.
Many older students are fulfilling a long standing ambition by taking piano lessons. Some students may have had lessons when they were younger and want to re-learn and others are simply looking for a new hobby. Whatever the aim or reason, there are many benefits to piano lessons for older students. Learning the piano can keep you mentally active, help maintain dexterity, improve your hearing and stimulate the brain in a creative way. Older students can develop basic technique and music theory quite quickly, as their concentration, thinking skills and self-discipline are more advanced than that of children.
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.
