Featured Swampscott Piano Teachers

Danielle O

Instruments:

Danielle is an active orchestral player in Boston, New Hampshire and New York, playing with such orchestras as the Boston Ballet Orchestra, the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestra of Indian Hill, Lexington Symphony Orchestra, Cape Ann Symphony and Nashua Symphony.  She has worked with many prestigious conductors, including James Levine, Ludovic Morlot, David Boyd, Jonathan McPhee, Bruce Hangen, Mischa Santora, and Benjamin Zander. Originally from the small town of Barryville, NY, Danielle's orchestral career has taken her throughout the U.S. and abroad.  She has played in Boston's Symphony Hall, New York's Carnegie Hall and Cleveland's Blossom Music Center.  She began her piano studies at the age of 9 in her hometown of Barryville, NY. Taking up the clarinet at age ten and the bassoon one year later, the precocious young musician advanced very quickly. By the age of twelve, she was studying with former Russian concert pianist Sergei Arzoumanov, who led her through the rigorous demands of European classical training. Danielle also studied for a brief time with Morris Borrenstein, a graduate of the Manhattan School of Music in New York. Daniele remains an active orchestral player in the Boston area, and a dedicated teacher of more than thirty piano and clarinet students.

Corbin C

Instruments:

 I started piano lessons when I was very young and think all kids that are interested in lessons should be given the chance to see if they are ready. I cater my teaching to each individual student, because everyone is ready to start lessons at a different age, learns at a different rate, and experiences learning differently. I started teaching in my mother's piano studio as a teenager, had a fabulous pedagogy instructor at Oberlin, and continue exposing myself to new materials. As a result, I am familiar with numerous methods and teaching styles and can choose the books and approach that are right for each student. My ultimate teaching goals are to give students a firm foundation in music reading, to enjoy performing, and to work hard and be proud of their accomplishments.

Christopher L

Instruments:

I'm an enthusiastic and encouraging instructor, who loves to share my passion for music with stduents.  In 2012, I graduated from Ithaca College with Bachelor of Music degrees in Music Composition and Music Theory.  I spent the past year teaching composition, choral directing, and accompanying undergraduate performance majors at a study abroad institute in Vienna, Austria.  I will be starting a Master of Music degree in Theory this Fall.

Josh G

Instruments:

Hi, I'm Josh.  I'm going to put everything on the table and tell you that I'm a music school drop out.  I dropped out because I had an opportunity to perform in a band that had a lot of potential.  With my time in that band, I made strides in my career on the instrument I was playing, the Chapman Stick.  I've been playing guitar longer than the Stick, and I wouldn't have told you about my college experience if I wasn't completely confident in my abilities to deliver quality instruction on Stick, guitar, intermediate bass, beginning piano and music theory.

Erica G

Instruments:

For 12 years I taught piano and voice while running my own studio. I am passionate about teaching music. In 1992 I graduated from the University of Virginia with a BA in Music Education. My first love is teaching. I started teaching while in college. I tutored music theory and started my own studio in 1993 in which I have taught many children and adults. Often I worked with students for over 5 years.I also plyed in a church. Upon coming to Boston, my eagerness to teach again drove me to where I am at. I have a consummate passion for teaching.

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.
In home lessons are what 90% of our students request. Not only does this provide a convenient means to study music, but we also notice no difference in the quality of lessons done in home or in studio. They are typically structured the same. The main benefit of in-home lessons is the reduction in travel time to another location, and additionaly the student may be able to focus better in your own home since they are familiar with it. Piano lessons in the home offer a practical choice for your family for learning the skill of playing a musical instrument.
Students at different levels of their piano playing will require different aspects of piano playing to be covered during their lessons. Beginners will start out learning the basics, intermediates will be applying the foundations to more complex compositions and advanced players will want to hone a few specific skills or styles. The basic things that beginner students will learn are things such as; learning the notes of the piano, posture and playing technique, scales and chords. At this level, students will learn simple scales and chords, such as major and minor chords, and start to put some of the basic techniques into practice via simple songs. Intermediate players will work on more exotic chords and playing such as diminished chords, 7th chords and applying these things to more challenging compositions. Advanced players can improve sight reading, improvisational abilities or work on genre specific techniques, such as Jazz or Blues. Throughout, students can develop their musical ear, reading and theory.
"We have many adult students taking lessons. Whether you have studied music as a child, or are wanting to learn a new skill, music lessons are a great avenue to go with! Not only do they keep you young and energized, but our teachers are also able to be ""on your level"" and instruct you in a way you can understand."
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!
