Featured Vancouver Piano Teachers

Chuck M

Instruments:

In 2011, Chuck moved to Portland, Oregon from Gainesville, Florida, where he was a staple of the music teaching and performing community for more than 25 years. Originally from Chicago, Chuck completed his BA in Music History and a Masters of Music (MM) at the University of Florida. Chuck began piano lessons at age 12 at a time when The Beatles caught his attention. His first attempt at composing was actually improvising melodies over the ending chords to "Hey Jude". Along with playing Beatles tunes Chuck learned classic American standards from a set of Reader's Digest Songbooks inherited from his grandmother.  Chuck was initially self-taught until his desire to go beyond what he could do on his own led him to seek out a teacher and eventually study music formally in college.

Marianne P

Instruments:

  I enjoy students of all ages and levels of musical experience. My students have done well in the music exams through the Toronto Conservatory system and at local music festivals.     

William A

Instruments:

Hi, My name is Will. I love working with beginner students as well as those who have already developed their musical skills. I'm an easy-going person who feels that music should be enjoyed, but also encourages students to challenge themselves and reach for their highest potential. I have found that when students like the pieces they are playing, they will put more effort into learning them and therefore will develop their skills more quickly and completely. I am a member of the Oregon Federation of Music Clubs.

Russ B

Instruments:

I am a pastor and music teacher.  With 8 children of my own, I am well versed in the art of patient and encouraging teaching.  I specialize in beginners, young or old, in helping build good technique, broad understanding, and purpose in their playing (whether it be for fun or for performance).  I tailor my approach to the individual needs of the student and their desires/goals along with that of the parents (for younger students).

Lee E

Instruments:

I am an instructor who recognizes music as a powerful symbol of humanity and the dramatic emotional effects it has on people. I thoroughly enjoy sharing these experiences with my students, helping them to grow and become more acquainted with all that music has to offer. I graduated from Concordia University with a Bachelor of Arts in Music Education in May of 2013. I have been fortunate enough to play the guitar and piano in numerous musical outfits for the past ten years, having been featured on such festivals as the Warped Tour Festival, Music Fest North West, andThe Fest in Gainesville Florida. I have also been featured on programs such as "A Prairie Home Companion" and "If You Make It - Pink Couch Sessions." I have a good amount of experience playing in front of large crowds, and am currently in two touring rock bands.

More Information About Piano Lessons

We recommend that students get either a full size piano, or an 88-key, weighted hammer action keyboard for their lessons and practice. A real acoustic piano will provide the most satisfying learning experience, however, due to the costs and size of the instrument, a keyboard is often the more convenient option. Weighted keys will respond most like those of an acoustic piano, and keyboards have the added bonus of being portable and compatible with headphones. The most popular brands of keyboard or digital piano are Yamaha, Casio, Korg and Roland.
Musika offers customized one-on-one music lessons in your home - a smart and simple solution for busy parents and students. The convenience of in-home lessons allows you to save time without having to transport your child to class, allows your child to maximize their busy schedule, and provides a safe and familiar environment in which to learn.
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.
Learning a new musical skill as an adult is a great way to keep your brain fresh! We have many adult students actively taking lessons with us, and this actually represents around 50% of our student base. Our instructors will offer an individually tailored lesson plan to the needs of an adult student. You will learn the technique of the instrument, specific repetoire suited to your skill level, and learn how to read music and sight read.
Learning to play the piano as a child is a fun, rewarding and vastly beneficial to their overall development. Children can develop their motor-skills, dexterity and coordination through technical piano playing - learning scales, chords and correct fingering. Young students can also develop their concentration, listening skills and ability to master complex thought processes through theory, repertoire and student-teacher feedback. Learning to play the piano can also be character building, such as instilling a hard-working attitude, developing self-discipline and confidence through practice, taking exams, enter competitions or performing recitals.
