Featured Wake forest Piano Teachers

Maria V

Instruments:

I am a passionate teacher. I'm very patient, supportive, fun, disciplined, and constant. I have many years of international performance and teaching experience. 

Matthew S

Instruments:

I'm a fun, energetic teacher who enjoys helping students find their inner passion for music. In 2012, I graduated from UNC - Chapel Hill with a Bachelor of Arts in Music and Mathematics. While studying composition under Dr. Allen Anderson, I premiered and recorded pieces for brass trio, wind quintet, percussion ensemble, and soprano with piano accompaniment. In college, I also had the opportunity to tour with the UNC Men's Glee Club across the country as a soloist. Working with all kinds of musicians - performers, conductors, composers, teachers - has helped me understand what a collaborative and rewarding experience making music can be.

Matthew D

Instruments:

I have been an enthusiastic musician since the time I began to sing at age 3. At 8 I began learning the piano and at 11 I began learning guitar.  I graduated from Appalachian State University with a Bachelors Degree in writing, but my minor was in Music Performance. Inititally, I had planned to major in music but after some career changing decisitions I switched. I continued however, to continue taking music courses through the school. I also took many performance opportunities in the area through the school of music, through a student led A-Cappella group named Higher Ground (which I directed from 2010 to 2011), and through my own private gigging playing guitar and piano. I currently live in the Raleigh area and am employed part time as the Worship Music Director at Hope Presbyterian Church. I have been teaching privately since my time studying at Appalachian State, but I have just recently joined on with Musika. I offer instruction in guitar up to an advanced level, and I also offer instruction in voice, piano, and mandolin to an intermediate level.

Gina O

Instruments:

I began taking violin and piano around the age of 9 years.  I continued studying through private lessons. Later I spent 3 1/2 years at the Hartt School of Music Community Division where I continued the study of the violin and played in several musical groups including an early music ensemble and string quartets. I was an active soloist and member of my church orchestra in Connecticut and played violin as concertmaster in the Colchester Civic Orchestra for the 2011-2012 season. I moved to Raleigh in 2012 and currently play violin with the Chapel Hill Philharmonia. I also play in my church orchestra and string quartet. I am an active member of the Raleigh music community, playing. for example, in the Meredith College graduation ceremony and in pit orchestra. I play piano as accompanist for my students in concerts, recitals, and fine arts competitions.

Valentina P

Instruments:

I am a piano teacher with over 40 years of experience. I greatly enjoy teaching and sharing with students the wonderful gift of music. I graduated with a Masters of Arts in Piano Performance and Pedagogy from the Moldavian State Conservatory in 1980, although my teaching career began a decade earlier. From the very first lesson I was privileged to teach, I knew I wanted to teach piano for the rest of my life. I also love performing, and have performed as a collaborative pianist in secular as well as in sacred settings, as well as in ensembles and as a vocal accompanist.

More Information About Piano Lessons

Most students start out by learning to play on a keyboard or digital piano. The most reputable keyboards brands are Yamaha, Roland and Casio, and can be purchased from most good music instrument retailers. Students should look to buy a keyboard with 88 weighted keys, as this will most resemble the playability of a real piano. At a minimum, 61 keys will suffice for most songs and practice. Keyboards are portable and can be played with headphones, making them highly convenient for practice. That said, if it is within you means to buy an acoustic piano, it will provide the best learning experience.
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.
All students start their lessons at different levels of experience and with different aims and goals in mind. For beginner students who are new to the piano, lessons will be devised to give students the fundamentals of good piano playing. Students will learn the correct posture, hand position and fingering techniques for playing scales and chords. Students can develop these skills through practising scales, arpeggios and simple melodies using both hands. For advanced students, they will cover more intricate skills, such as creating runs and fills to add interest and variation to their playing, to develop their repertoire of pieces they can play and to develop their sight reading. Some students may have a specific genre that they are interested in learning, such as jazz piano. Students will learn the musical theory and techniques that underly a host of musical genres. Musika teachers are able to recommend books or specific areas of additional study that they feel will advance each individual student and help to achieve their goals.
At Musika, we highly recommend that students looking to learn to play the piano do so with a clear goal in mind. Whether your goal is to learn to play your favourite tunes, reacquaint yourself with the piano, or just to play for fun, our experienced teachers can help you make those goals a reality. Learning, developing and improving technique, co-ordination and theory can actually be quicker during adulthood as the complex thought processes and theory are easier to understand. Adults can also help maintain their fine-motor skills, concentration and listening skills into later life.
Due to the attention span of very young children, we advise that students begin their piano lessons no younger than age 4 or 5. Piano lessons are a great way to introduce an instrument for the first time to a younger child, as learning piano will teach them basic musicianship skills like rhythm and harmony, and how to read sheet music and chords.
