Featured Vancouver Piano Teachers

Joseph A

Instruments:

I make a living performing with three different bands, and as a freelance swing guitarist and composer as well as teaching guitar privately.

Landon S

Instruments:

I am a classically trained 3rd generation musician. I have experience teaching students from beginners to advanced level.

Suzanne G

Instruments:

I started learning piano as a child, but it was in high school that I realized I really wanted to pursue playing keyboards, because it allowed me a way to express myself. I later attended Mt. Hood Community College, famous for its jazz program, where I played keyboards and sang in select choirs and vocal jazz groups. After graduating, I directed the college Gospel Ensemble for two years before working full-time at a large local church, where I was Music Director, a worship leader, and keyboardist. In addition to vocal and keyboard work, I directed large and small choirs and ensembles, bands and orchestras, also arranging many styles of music. It is exciting to experience what can happen when people work together musically--the whole becomes even greater than the sum of the parts! I presently enjoy working as an accompanist, music teacher and contracted musician.  

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.

Travis M

Instruments:

I'm a passionate and patient instructor who loves sharing the joy of music with others.  Be it teaching a student chords, riffs and songs, or playing and performing with one of my bands, I'm constantly striving to grow as a musician and teacher.

More Information About Piano Lessons

Most students start out with a keyboard or digital piano. We recommend a full size keyboard with 88 weighted keys - weighted keyboards will have a touch response similar to a real piano. However, if purchasing a real piano is in your budget, we think that a real acoustic piano will provide you and the student with the highest level of satisfaction during practice time.
Taking piano lessons from the comfort of your own home is the most convenient way of learning to the play the instrument. Finding the additional time out of a busy schedule to transport your child to and from their lessons can be difficult, making home lessons a convenient, time and money saving option. The only thing necessary for home lessons is a keyboard or piano to play on! There is no difference between the lesson content of studio or home lessons - only the location is different. Home lessons help provide a safe, familiar and comfortable learning environment for students.
Our piano lessons take place in a one-on-one setting and are customized to the requirements of each individual student. Students vary in ability from beginner to advanced, and naturally have different lessons requirements for each stage of their development. Put broadly, beginners will cover such aspects to piano playing as; posture, hand positions, fingering technique, scales, chords and applying these things to simple songs. They will also start to develop their knowledge of music theory, reading chord charts and sheet music. Intermediates will start to take these concepts further, but learning different chords variations, such as diminished, augments, slash and 7th chords, as well as improving their speed and playing more complex compositions. Advanced students can develop playing skills such as glissando, improv and working with different piano modes, such as Dorian, Mixolydian and Aeolin. They may also like to study a specific genre - usually Jazz or Blues piano.
In many ways adult learns have an advantage over young students. Adults have better self-discipline with regards to practice, a more patient and have higher levels of concentration. This allows them to develop the basic skills at a reasonably quick rate. Learning the piano is also a great way of remaining mental active during adulthood, and helps students to improve their hand-eye co-ordination and develop a critical ear. Learning to play the piano in adulthood can be beneficial health-wise, is a great way of harnessing creativity and stimulating the brain as can be immensely satisfying when achieving set goals.
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.
