Valerie N.

Biddeford, ME

About Valerie

I like to tailor my teaching style to my student's needs, so you can progress at your rate, with your kind of music. I can teach pop or classical, whichever you prefer. What's important is your having fun and making progress.

*** Specialties ***
Although my favorite is classical music, I'm very happy to work with whatever genre suits you. I also like to include a reasonable amount of theory, if you'd like. I do try to explain the relevance of theory to the music at hand, and how it can help further understanding of the piece, often making it easier and more fun to play.

Angelika K.

Gorham, ME

About Angelika

Musical Background
My goal as a piano teacher is to help every student understand and learn to appreciate the language of Music. Every student is unique and therefore receives a personalized piano education. No two student learn exactly the same way at precisely the same speed! Therefore treating students as individuals is very important to me. With time students will discover what music means to them personally. The impact and influence of music on people is precious in many different ways. Piano lessons are a lifetime investment and its rewards and benefits will help enrich your life.

I
am a classically trained pianist from Germany, where I acquired a Piano Teaching Certification. Thanks to my wonderful piano teacher who was both a concert pianists and college-level music professor I now can share my love for music with others. I have taken college-level piano classes in music theory and group instruction. Also, to further my education, I am studying various piano pedagogy material in order to be of even better service to my students.

My teaching background consists of four years of experience in teaching not only piano, but also tutoring Math, Latin and German, which greatly contributed to the expansion and deepening of my teaching skills. Most importantly, after moving to the US several years ago, I founded the Musical Moonlight Piano Studio, which is now celebrating its two-year anniversary. Watching a student succeed is the highest reward a teacher can receive and I am looking forward to see you become a member of the studio.

*** Lesson Details ***
Although no lesson is exactly the same and every student is approached differently, the basic structure usually resembles the following:

1. Warm-up fingers by technical exercises
2. Review homework, work through it, correct mistakes, improve performance, etc.
3. Introduce new pieces, new material (e.g. theory)

*** Studio Equipment ***
The Studio Equipment includes (but is not limited to):
- a piano
- metronome
- a variety of music

Before you start piano lessons, you will need to have a functioning piano and an honest desire to learn to play :)

*** Travel Equipment ***
- piano literature
- metronome
- any necessary additional material

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching piano. Although most of my experience is from teaching children and teenagers, adults are most welcome as well. I am fully convinced that it is never too late to start learning how to play an instrument!

If you want the best, then schedule a lesson with Angelika. I am an adult who wanted to learn more about piano but also in understanding music in general. So far, I have learned many techniques that make quite a difference in the way a piece sounds and in how much enjoyment I (and anyone who may be listening!) get from playing it. Angelika explains things very well and has the patience sometimes needed when learning something new…or in becoming better at it. Go ahead, do it for yourself (or those you love). You will not be disappointed!

I have been playing guitar for 30 years. I am a state certified K-12 music teacher with over 7 years experience teaching guitar privately and in the classroom. I teach not only children but also adults of any level - beginner, intermediate, or advanced. Students can learn acoustic or electric guitar, and fingerstyle or pick playing. Styles taught include classical, rock and pop, blues, jazz, folk and country. Sight-reading, music theory, and learning by ear are skills all students will develop.

"I like Mr. C. because he always cheers me up if I do something wrong on guitar. He helps you thr
ough step by step." -- Aaron, age 9

"I would emphasize your patience with me and your ability to simplify coursework." -- Fedja, age 37

"Excellent teacher with lots of patience. Kick-started me into the musical world and inspired me to learn guitar and start singing." -- Angelina, age 16

*** Lesson Details ***
Each lesson will begin with tuning the guitar and warm-ups. Then we'll move on to either our practice books or a song or piece you have chosen to learn and study not found in the books.

If you are beginner, we'll start with how you handle the guitar and any technique issues. Then we'll work on note and chord recognition, the ability to sight-read and play from memory.

The first lesson was great. Paul was patient, knowledgeable, and fun. He met with myself for a lesson and with my Grand Daughter who is 5 years old. She had a good time, and is looking forwarding to our her next lesson.

Simply put Paul just knows how to reach his students and help them reach their potential in finding their voice. He made lessons fun and challenging without putting to much pressure on you. Every lesson I took I felt very comfortable and motivated to learn with his approach. If you want to learn to sing Paul is your guy!!!!

Should Parents Observe During Voice Lessons?
