R. ROBIN G.

Cuyahoga Falls, OH

About R. ROBIN

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching what the student has a desire to learn and great technique combined with a lot of music theory, for those taking piano and/or composition lessons with me. For piano lessons, I do require the student having 24-hour access to a piano or keyboard. It's nice to have an 88-key, weighted key digital piano or keyboard. If you don't have an 88 key instrument, you want to strive for that. I prefer the student own a 'real' piano, if possible.

Graham H.

Akron, OH

About Graham

I am a Piano Performance major at The University of Akron. I currently study with Philip Thomson, and my past teachers include Laura Silverman, Douglas Hicks, and the late Eugene Mancini. I have experience teaching six-year-olds, retirees, and those in between. I am patient and encouraging.

I am available to teach in the student's home or online.

Piano studies overview:

You can play what you can hear. I see that students have a well-rounded approach towards musicianship and playing. Lessons should include theory, ear training, etc. to ensure that students understand what they are play
ing.

Beginning students might start with a method such as the well-known 'Piano Adventures' by Faber and Faber. More advanced students will work on progressively more demanding literature.

In a piano lesson, we will cover many different aspects of playing. The student and I will analyze a new piece of music in various ways while coming up with an idea of how it sounds. I will play the piece and make practice suggestions. The student will play prepared pieces, and I will make suggestions. I value spontaneity.

My adult students say I am insightful.

Chad W.

Cuyahoga Falls, OH

About Chad

Hi my name is Chad! I've been teaching acoustic guitar, electric guitar, and voice for many years, and I love to make music make sense to students of all ages. Whether it’s just to kick back and relax or to become the greatest soloist of all time, I help newbies and experts alike achieve their goals.

I studied music at Gordon college, am certified in audio engineering, and have a long history with classical, Christian, and pop music. I like to teach the practical, traditional, and theoretical sides of music - all wrapped into one. My favorite animal is the ocelot, and my favorite drink is r
oot beer.

I'm looking forward to meeting you!

Chad is an extremely accomplished, talented, and well-trained musician. I am most definitely a better guitar player and overall musician due to lessons with him. He teaches theory as well as application. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

As and adult beginner, it was imperative that my instructor had patience! Chad asked me what I wanted to learn and always tried to tailor the lesson that way. He is great at keeping students encouraged and pushing personal boundaries. I've taken lessons from Chad for about two years now and I can't imagine ever switching to another teacher. He is super knowledgeable about music and his passion really shows during lessons. He's flexible and seriously dedicated to making it work for his students. Love this guy!!!

Aaron is a talented instructor. He has worked with our son for more than 2 years teaching him cello and music theory. Aaron has the gift of being an outstanding musician, but also the gift of being able to impart that knowledge to others in a meaningful way, such that even young children and teens learn easily from his instruction. We have recommended Aaron to others and he is equally as good with adults. His manner is professional, he takes pride in the accomplishments of his students and is dedicated to the success of his students.
