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 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

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.
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.
Students at different levels of their piano playing will require different aspects of piano playing to be covered during their lessons. Beginners will start out learning the basics, intermediates will be applying the foundations to more complex compositions and advanced players will want to hone a few specific skills or styles. The basic things that beginner students will learn are things such as; learning the notes of the piano, posture and playing technique, scales and chords. At this level, students will learn simple scales and chords, such as major and minor chords, and start to put some of the basic techniques into practice via simple songs. Intermediate players will work on more exotic chords and playing such as diminished chords, 7th chords and applying these things to more challenging compositions. Advanced players can improve sight reading, improvisational abilities or work on genre specific techniques, such as Jazz or Blues. Throughout, students can develop their musical ear, reading and theory.
Adults take up piano lessons for a number of different reasons. Some people want to reintroduce themselves to the instrument having once played it in the past, while others are looking for a new hobby or just to learn a new skill for fun! Whatever the reason, there are major benefits to learning the piano during adulthood. Learning piano technique can help retain fine motor skills and co-ordination, it can keep the mind sharp due to the complex thought processes and has shown to be good for preserving your hearing. Learning to play the piano can also be therapeutic, and is a great stress reliever.
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.
