Featured Suffolk Piano Teachers

Donna H

Instruments:

I am a very seasoned voice and piano teacher with a very broad music education in vocal performance, piano performance, accompanying, music education, musical theatre and conducting.  I am solidly classically trained in standard repetoire.  I am a conductor of school, church, and community choirs and have been a guest conductor at American Choral Directors Conventions.  I am the past Music Teachers National Association President from Fairbanks, Alaska. I was also a Lead Singer and Director of Class Act Vocal Jazz Band and Golden Heart Chorale.  I have the very best to offer my students.  In addition I am an expert in vocal technique, vocal health and fixing vocal problems including speaking.

Gregory H

Instruments:

I'm a passionate teacher with over 7 successful years of teaching experience. I began teaching voice, piano, guitar, saxophone, and drums as I completed my degree in Music Education and Composition.  

Jon C

Instruments:

I'm a fun loving musician who enjoys sharing my passion for music with my students. I graduated from the College of Wooster with a Bachelor of Music degree in Vocal Performance and then Florida State University with a Masters of Music in Choral Conducting.  Music has opened many doors both professionally and personally.  I have had the opportunity to tour up and down the east coast while performing with 16 voice professional choir and met my wife through a choir we both were singing in.

Lou D

Instruments:

I have been playing guitar and singing for 20 years.  I have formal guitar training from John Jennings (of Mary Chapin Carpenter) and Tom Giata (One Life to Live, All My Children, etc.).  I also have had formal vocal training from Matt Kramer (Saigon Kick). I am certified to teack Piano, Guitar and Voice beginner and intermediate levels.

Charlie G

Instruments:

I am a disciplined (yet highly fun-loving) pianist and instructor whom loves working with students of all ages, personalities and ability levels.  It is always rewarding to be able to pass on those musical and professional traits, which were further developed and nurtured at Shenandoah University by my own professors, to our next generation of performing artists.  One of my greatest achievements as a musician is having the opportunity to debut at world renowned Carnegie Hall in NYC back in June 2014.  My performance background includes voice/instrumental/dance accompanying, playing in ensembles with genres ranging from classical to blues/jazz to even hip hop.  What I always try to exercise as a teacher and performer is the importance of empathy--building up the self-esteem of those I not only work with but with the environment around me.  Doing so can invaluably help make one realize that he/she can do anything in life; and that INCLUDES learning how to play an instrument.

More Information About Piano Lessons

We suggest students purchase a piano or keyboard for their lessons, as they will need to practice every day in order to develop their skills on the instrument. We recommend a keyboard with weighted keys, as this will feel most similar to an actual piano. An actual piano will have 88 keys, but most keyboards start from 65 keys and go up from there. Common keyboard brands found at music stores are Yamaha, Casio, and Korg. Many keyboard sets will come with a case, stand, headphones, and may even offer recording features for recording your own playing.
Taking piano lessons from the comfort of your own home is the most convenient way of learning to the play the instrument - all you need for your lessons is a piano or keyboard to play on! Home lessons remove the hassle of transporting your child to and from their lessons, and can be fitted around busy work schedules more readily. Whether the lesson takes place in-home or in the studio, the content remains the same. 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.
The content of each lesson is determined by the ability and experience level of each individual student. For students just starting off, the foundations of piano playing will start to be laid. This will include learning to read music and chord charts, learning their way around the piano and learning simple scales and chords. Students can put these new skills to use through simple, entry level compositions. For intermediate pianists, they will develop some of the finer arts to piano playing, such as modulation, developing speed, and combining a wider array of chords, such as augmented and slash chords. They will also get to work on their sight reading and playing more challenging songs. Advanced students may wish to work on their improvisational skills, develop their repertoire or study a specific genre or style of playing, such as Jazz, Baroque, or Blues. Regardless, all students will experience the joys of piano playing.
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 lessons for children will focus on learning the fundamentals of the technique of the instrument and learning to read music and rhythm. We suggest beginning piano lessons no earlier than age 4, due to the attention span of the child, as well as the strength they have in their hands for playing. Piano Lessons will offer an excellent introduction to learning music for a child. Music theory and musicianship skills will also be taught during the lessons. Piano lessons are a great choice for introducing the art of music to your child!
