Featured Swampscott Piano Teachers

aaron m

Instruments:

Hi, I am a graduate of the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, and have been teaching drums and percussion for over 10 years.  I focus on the fundamentals of teaching students how to read music and play core drum rudiments, but try to balance this with just playing and having fun jamming on the drumset.  I want all of my students to have fun, and stay interested in playing the drums and growing as a musician. In addition to teaching, I also spend much of my professional time performing in and around Boston and the greater New England area.  

Chi Won L

Instruments:

I am a jazz guitarist who is interested in and plays all kinds of music.

Kai S

Instruments:

Hello, and thanks for reading about me!  I recently graduated from New England Conservatory with a BM in Jazz Studies.  Next Fall I will be pursuing a Master's degree from the Conservatory on a full merit based scholarship.  I play lead, jazz, classical, and all sorts of pop music.  You may find me around Boston playing in musicals, rock clubs, jazz big bands, a small restaurant with a trio, or even subbing in a local orchestra. I have performed with the Miguel Zenon Quartet, Kim Bum Soo, Jason Moran's Band Wagon, Wayne Shorter Quartet, Arturo Sandoval, Jiggs Whigham, Rick Baptist, John Clayton, Tiger Okoshi, Bob Brookmeyer, and the Boston Brass among others. And I have studied with Laurie Frink, Jerry Bergonzi, Wayne Bergeron, Arturo Sandoval, Luis Bonilla, John McNeil, Steve Emery, Tiger Okoshi, and Wayne Naus.

Daniel E

Instruments:

I graduated from college in May of 2012 with a degree in zoology and music. I am currently pursuing a career in both fields, and teaching guitar on the side. I am a passionate and patient teacher, and I enjoy passing on my knowledge to others.

Jane W

Instruments:

I am a creative and intelligent coach who loves working with students who are motivated and passionate about music.   I pursued my undergraduate degree at the University of California at Berkeley (not Berklee!) where I was involved in playing for dance classes (ballet, modern, African).  Most of my students love my high energy and usually stay with me until they had to leave Boston for college or family reasons.   I grew up in Hong Kong, so my earlier training was primarily based on the Associated Board of the Royal School of Music, a very methodical way of learning.

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.
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.
We offer piano lessons for students of all ages, including adults. Whether you are a complete beginner on the instrument, or you have not played the piano in many years, our knowledgable instructors can definitely assist you in your journey of developing your musical skills.
Our recommended starting age for piano is 4 or 5, with students capable of playing the keys properly and with sufficient strength in the fingers and hands. Young students also should have begun learning to count and to read. No matter what the age may be, the piano is an excellent introduction to the fundamentals of music, including music theory and basic composition techniques.
