Patti C.

Murrysville, PA

About Patti

Hi! I am a classically trained pianist originally from Syracuse, NY. I graduated from Allegheny College in Meadville, PA where I studied piano under Professor Alec Chien. I also enjoyed playing the French horn and percussion with the Allegheny Wind Symphony and Wind Ensemble.

I have performed numerous piano solo recitals, as a featured pianist with the Allegheny Wind Ensemble, in piano duos, a piano quartet, small instrumental groups and in the pit orchestra for musical productions. I know the skills and technique needed to play as a soloist and in different types of groups. I am eager t
o share this with aspiring pianists.

I have 6+ years experience teaching private lessons to young children and 3 years experience in teaching fun group EZ play organ classes to senior citizens. My senior year I was also a substitute teacher for beginning class piano at Allegheny College.

So whether you’re looking to study as a serious pianist, just as a hobbyist or somewhere in between, I can guide and teach you along your journey.

I started piano lessons when I was 8 and music has been a part of who I am ever since. My goal as a teacher is to make a students' experience positive and rewarding. I have studied under 3 piano teachers in my life. Each teacher had a positive influence on me personally and musically. I strive to do the same for my students.

I am the strongest and most comfortable working with beginners of all ages. I get great joy out of seeing people realize their dreams or desire to start playing the piano.

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to use the Bastien or Alfred piano methods. Students will be engaged and excited with the progress they make. For the younger students 5-7 I prefer the Bastien method which includes 2 books: lesson book and theory/technique book. For young students 8 and up the Bastien method includes 4 books: lesson, Theory, Technique and Performance/Solo. For adults I use the Alfred's Basic All-in-One Piano Course. Once students are ready I incorporate chord progressions, scales, sight reading and ear training into the lessons. Each lesson builds on the concepts and skills learned in prior lessons. I provide an opportunity for students to perform in a recital twice a year to show family and friends their progress.

I put great importance on proper technique right from the start. Poor technique can frustrate a student and therefore hinder their enjoyment and sense of accomplishment.

Lessons incorporate things that appeal to different learning styles. For example, a visual learner may really enjoy the flashcards to help learn the notes on the staff. For an audible learner they may look forward to hearing me play a new musical passage for him/her before talking about it. Finally, clapping a rhythm before playing it can really benefit the kinesthetic learner.

My two girls started taking piano lessons in Kindergarten and were very excited to learn. That enthusiasm didn't last long when teacher after teacher showed irritation and a lack of patience with young learners. We went through SIX teachers and were asked by friends why we continued our search for the RIGHT teacher. I knew the girls wanted to play and the problem wasn't that they were children, the problem was finding that teacher who had great patience, an even temper, and one who could move students through those periods of tough times. We found THAT teacher in Ms. Patty!!!!! We have been with her now for two years. The girls are practicing now for their fourth recital and absolutely love playing. They have learned so much more than piano. They have learned patience by example...... Ms. Patty is the best ever!!!!!! <3

I am an older adult who has been taking lessons from Patti for over 2 years now. She has been extremely patient with me and I'm happy with her teaching style. As a person who just wants piano lessons for fun (and to keep my brain working), Patti is glad to accommodate me in having a say as to what music selections I want to learn. I would highly recommend her.

Nicholas K.

Irwin, PA

About Nicholas

I am 28 years old, and was born and raised in North Huntingdon Pennsylvania. I knew at a very young age that I wanted to pursue a career in the arts. I believe that music specifically unlocks self-expression, intelligence, and creativity, and I cannot imagine a life without it. Teaching music, acting, and singing is something that brings me great joy, I am passionately committed to my students and love the challenges and rewards that teaching has to offer!

Training and Experience:

I am a classical trained singer and musical theater actor. I studied vocal performance at Slippery Rock Univ
ersity with Dr. Colleen Gray. While I was at Slippery Rock I had the opportunity to perform in a variety of plays, musicals and operas. My favorite roles include Seymour Krelbourn in Little Shop of Horrors, Cliff Bradshaw in Cabaret, and Jacques in Shakespeare's As you like it. I also had significant roles in Slippery Rock's main stage operas including King Melchior in Amahl and the night Visitors and Dr. Falked in Die Fledermaus. When I was a junior, I had the opportunity to perform in my first professional opera, Bellini's i capuleti e i Montecchi (The Capulets and the Montagues) with the Pittsburgh Opera Chorus at the Benedum Center. After college I performed at Busch Gardens Williamsburg as a singer in their Italian shows as well as their Christmas Show.

I have performed in operas, plays and musicals regionally around the country including Florida, New Hampshire, Connecticut and New York City. My most recent project was workshopping a new musical called Front Page Girl, a musical based on life of Nellie Bly, who was a pioneer for women in the world of journalism. The musical was composed by David Friedman with a book written by Peter Kellogg. David Friedman is known for his work on the Today Show, his work with Disney's Beauty and the Beast on Broadway, and composing the Broadway musical 'Scandal' with Kathy Lee Gifford in 2012. Peter Kellogg is a two time Tony Award Nominee for his work in the musical adaptation of Anna Karenina. The opportunity to work with these two talented men was an experience I will never forget. I also had the pleasure of being nominated and winning a 2013 Spirit Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Musical for my portrayal of Joseph Pulitzer in Front Page Girl.

I taught private voice in college and at The Centerstage Academy of Performing Arts when I lived in Williamsburg. I recently moved back to Pittsburgh after living in New York City for just under two years. and I am ready to get back into private teaching! I specialize in teaching classical voice, musical theater, audition preparation, monologue preparation, and performance preparation. I have taught students both individually and in a group setting. The ages of my students have ranged anywhere from third grade to men and women into their sixties. As someone who has been in the business for a little over five years now, I am confident that I have the tools to teach and prepare any student who has the passion, commitment and work ethic that it takes to succeed.

Bruce M.

Johnstown, PA

About Bruce

I have been playing the guitar seriously for approximately 32 years. I taught myself to play while enlisted in the US Navy. Using books and playing by ear were my methods of learning. I began writing songs shortly after learning to play, this was quite a satisfying outlet for all sorts of emotions! As a civilian I have been in various bands from Blues to Classic Rock to Heavy Metal. All were learning experiences, plus a lot of fun! I also play bass guitar and can provide lessons on that if you are interested.
I am a paraplegic and cannot come to your location so if you are intere
sted I am located in Richland behind Walmart. I have been instructing people for a number of years but not as a formal teacher. I would like to take time now to teach what I have learned over the years to whoever is interested in learning this marvelous instrument that brings me so much pleasure! Thank you for considering me for your learning experience!

I worked with Mr. Pickering for three years when he was my high school choir director and it was a great experience for me. He inspired me to work my hardest and always push myself to be better than I was the day before. Now I am studying to be a music teacher myself; I hope to inspire my students to be their best just like he did.

Dale J.

New Kensington, PA

About Dale

I've taught public school elementary band for 30 years, have been a church organist for 70 years, and taught piano and organ for 57 years. I enjoy teaching music and working with students and believe that learning to read music will enable the student to play with other musicians and enjoy music as much as I have. I try to put myself in the student's place to think as he/she does and help them understand music and perform it.
