Featured Wilmington Piano Teachers

Jane H

Instruments:

Personally I am interested in many different genres of music (classical voice, jazz voice, classical piano, jazz piano, accompanying), and in college I was able to take many different kinds of lessons to fulfill my needs. As a result, I feel very comfortable teaching others about all sorts of different genres of music. 

Jim T

Instruments:

I've been playing piano for 40 yrs.and teaching for 25.

Caleb I

Instruments:

I am a lifelong musician who has a passion for teaching. I enjoy helping budding musicians find their voice and inspriation through their gift! I am a full time musician that shares the message of love, positivity, and marriage as I record original music and perform with my wife as RnB duo ISH. I have been fortunate enough to tour the country as a musician and I look forward to sharing that love of music with eager minds! I am a proud graduate of Wabash College with a Bachelor's Degree in music, with minors in French and Multicultural Studies. I truly believe in the benefits of an arts-infused education and how it promotes discipline, creativity, and expression. 

Matthew U

Instruments:

As a kid, I grew up listening to all types of music, from soul, jazz, hip-hop, R&B, contemporary, and rock.  My mom introduced me to my first piano at the age of 6 and I was hooked.  Music became a part of my soul.  I had great teachers that continued to help me develop my skills and challenge me.  I started in classical, and soon found myself getting into jazz and contemporary; I was growing as a musician.  Music was becoming a passion.  While my friends were saving for a car, I was saving for a Yamaha Motif XF8.  I would spend hours in my basement producing and creating music.  I believe music can take you to places with no barriers and restrictions.  As the philosopher Nietzsche so appropriately stated, "Without music, life would be a mistake."

Adam M

Instruments:

I’ve been playing Guitar and Singing since I was 9 years old.  Almost all of this was self-taught until I attended Columbia for Music theory and Composition after high school.  There, I was ranked the top rated guitarist on fret-board jury for two semesters in a row, I was an examplary student and began my journey towards becoming and an accomplished pianist.  Starting at the age of 12, I founded my first band and have played in a variety of original and cover bands ever since.   Included in these experiences was Chicagoland regular rotation play on XRT's local music showcase and an interview on the Flabby Hoffman Show.  While attending UIC I even dabbled in theatre, and though I I had little to no experiece as an actor, I achieved a lead role in three out of the four productions I was cast in.  Of these four, two were rock musicals, including the Who's "Tommy."  As you can see, my whole life is music.  I love to teach, perform and compose music.  Although I love all these elements of music, I would have to say that my greatest joy comes from seeing my students progress towards becoming accomplished musicians.  Whatever your goals may be, I take great pride in helping you attain them.

More Information About Piano Lessons

The best instrument to get would be an upright or baby grand piano. However, if your finances are limited we suggest looking into a digital keyboard. Go with the best quality keyboard that you can afford. We suggest a keyboard with weighted keys so that there is additional resistance on the keys than a toy piano. Most digital keyboards start at 65 keys, and go up to a full size 88 keys. You have to consider which keyboard would fit best in your home and your budget. A beginning student should get the keyboard before or immediately after beginning lessons, so that they may begin practicing as soon as the lessons commence.
Music lessons in your home offer a convenient option to learning music! Most of our students request in home lessons for this reason. As long as you have a piano or keyboard in your home, then you should be all set to start your lessons! Children who have never played an instrument before may feel more comfortable studying in their own home, as it may be less intimidating than going somewhere else. In home lessons decrease the time and gas money spent traveling to a different location.
Piano lessons are usually structured around a series of method books which are recommended by the teacher, and can be purchased at a local music store or online. Lessons for a beginner usually start with familiarizing the student with the piano as well as beginner level technique. This will include learning the notes on the piano, and learning basic scales, like major and minor scales. Beginners will start by learning how to play scales using the correct finger techniques with both bands until they develop their speed and co-ordination. Eventually students will start off by playing simple melodies - often nursery rhymes - that utilize and put the fingering techniques into practice. Students will also learn the various types of chord, from simple major and minor chords, through to 7th chords, slash chords and diminished chords. Students will also develop their sight reading and music theory knowledge throughout their lessons.
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.
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.
