Featured Vancouver Piano Teachers

Landon S

Instruments:

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

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 Music Teacher's National Association. 

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.

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

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.
Musika deals primarily with home lessons for students. The location is the only difference between our in-home lessons and our studio lessons. As they do not have to travel to their lessons, home piano lessons can be highly convenient for those parents and students with a busy schedule - students will need a keyboard to practice on, however. For younger students in particular, having piano lessons in the comfort of their own home can be of great benefit. They will feel more safe and relaxed in familiar surroundings, allowing them to focus on learning and enjoying playing the piano.
There are several different, but vey important elements to becoming a good piano player. It takes time to master the basic skills that will set you on your way to excellence. For beginners, the lessons will focus on elementary piano knowledge and technique, such as learning all the notes of the piano, hand and finger techniques for playing, learning scales and chords, as well as some music theory; reading sheet music, chord charts etc... These basic skills can then be applied to simple songs. Students with these foundations in place can expect to cover things like, diminished chords and other chord types, sight reading, playing more challenging compositions and learning the 7 piano modes - Ionian, Dorian, Phrygian, Lydian, Mixolydian, Aeolian and Locrian mode. Lessons for advanced students might cover topics such as improvisation, glissando, or the study of a specific genre of playing or composer, such as Jazz piano or Johann Sebastian Bach.
The piano is an easy instrument for beginners of all ages. We have adults who are total novices, some who haven't played their instrument in 10 years, and some who are more advanced students looking to take their skills to the next level. Our teachers have proven methods to get you the results you desire.
Piano is a great first instrument for children who have never studied music before. Our instructors specialize in teaching younger children, and will develop an individual lesson plan for your child. The youngest age that we recommend starting piano lessons is age 4. The instructor will be able to teach your child to read music, beginning music theory and musician skills, and how to develop a love for playing the instrument.
