My name is Joy Gilmore. I am a concert pianist. Playing piano is a major part of my life. I'm a passionate and motivated instructor who loves working with students and sharing my love of music. I started to play piano when I was 7. I became a concert pianist after I received my BA degree in piano performance and church music. I am still playing piano till this day. Piano lessons is not only improve kid's grades at school but also brings joy and peace to the earth. This is the reason why the prophets in the bible will give their prophecy when the musician brings down the anointing from heaven. Is your heart melted by the piano music? Do you have music running in your head and you want to scoring it down? Are you own a recording studio and wanted to learn more on the midi keyboard you are using?
I have been in piano teaching since 1985 when I was in college. Teaching piano brings me joy and happiness. Especially when I see my students are making progress in piano learning. Playing piano is a pleasure to them. It makes me very happy. Later in my life, I begin in composing and recording. I have completed over 30 piano songs and 4 two piano duets songs. And over 30 years of teaching experience, I know the technic and skill is very important in piano learning. I have re-write some finger exercises from Hanon. Also create some finger exercises for playing scales, appegios. For the older and teens students, I have arranged many popular songs for my student to motivating them in piano learning. I have arranged over 40 song so far for the teen age students. For the recording, I have record series of soaking music that you can find it on Youtube. Just type in my name in search on Youtube. I am still in production everyday. Because I know a beautiful music can be a healing of this society. Music and also brings peace and joy to us. Let us begin to work together and create beautiful music.
Piano lab: I used ipad app like Piano Maestro, Music for Little Mozart, Irealpro and other ipad apps to help the students to learn piano. Piano Books: For the age under 5, I use Music for Little Mozart by Alfred. For the age 5 to 9, I use Prep Course by Alfred, Piano Adventure Pre primer lever. For the age 9 to 12, I use Piano Basic Course by Alfred, or Premier Piano Course. For the age 12 and up, I use the piano music for the adults. I also arrange songs for them.
Nothing is more rewarding than seeing one of my students develop a passion for music! Therefore, it's important that each student progresses at his or her own pace. I encourage this by setting realistic goals for my students at each lesson. Acknowledging accomplishments helps fuel a students desire to progress, and makes students eager to learn more. By trying to find out what inspires the students, I can successfully tallow my instruction to their wants and needs.
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
