Susan R.

Camp Hill, PA

About Susan

I have over six years of teaching piano to children and adults, from beginner to intermediate levels. I also have over eight semesters of piano, as well as a minor in music. I occasionally play the piano for special music in church. I use what ever method I find suitable to the student. I also occasionally allow the student to pick his or her own music. For children, particularly younger ones, I use different things for incentives, such as stickers and lollipops. I worked in daycare for twenty two years, so I have experience with children from ages three to twelve.

Lindsey R.

Hanover, PA

About Lindsey

**THE STUDIO IS CURRENTLY BOOKED TO CAPACITY FOR FRIDAYS, AND I AM NOT ACCEPTING ANY MORE STUDENTS AT THIS TIME. PLEASE USE THE ASK-A-QUESTION FEATURE TO FIND OUT IF I EXPECT ANY OPENINGS IN THE NEAR FUTURE 3/24/15**

Join me for piano lessons in my home on Fridays on a baby grand piano! There is seating inside and outside, and there is plenty of on-street parking. There are also four friendly cats who enjoy listening during lessons!

What you will need:

An instrument to practice on - either an acoustic piano or a keyboard with weighted keys at home. **Please do not schedule lesso
ns unless you have an instrument.**

Sheet music - students can purchase it through me or from a store or online. We can talk about what kinds of music you like to play or want to learn to play once you sign up for lessons.

Usually for either a beginner adult or child, I recommend the Alfred piano series, along with a technique book to strengthen and limber up the fingers, and a fun piece ... something the student specifically wants to learn or be challenged with.

FAQs:

How often are lessons?
Once a week for half an hour is ideal, especially for beginners.

How often will I have to practice?
For 6 and 7 year olds, generally 20 minutes a day, 5 days a week. For everyone else, at least a half an hour a day will give you the most progress!

What do you specialize in?
My strongest abilities are in classical music, because that is what I have the most experience in, but I can also teach the fundamentals of playing pop and rock music, and good performance, accompaniment, and practice habits.

What happens if I can't come to my scheduled lesson?
Email me, text me, call me, or cancel the lesson through your TakeLessons profile. TakeLessons will notify me immediately. Your payment will then be applied to the following scheduled lesson.
If you do not notify me, then I will mark the lesson as "missed" instead of "canceled" and you will still be charged for it.
As long as you're coming to most lessons and not missing too many, a canceled lesson here or there with notice is not a problem.

What happens if I need to discontinue lessons but already paid for the lessons?
Contact TakeLessons and they will handle that for you.

I am happy to share my experience as a very satisfied piano student of Lindsey's! She is so patient and helpful while I'm learning. With her level of skill, she is teaching me more than just notes, like my form, timing and so much more. She uses a variety of music which keeps me interested and challenged. I highly recommend Lindsey as a teacher to both young, not so young, beginner or some skill as she will make all ages and levels feel at ease while they will truly be taught to play the piano! An awesome teacher!

Do you think the lessons also should be interesting and fun? You’re right! For the best results you need to enjoy the entire process. That is why my lessons are always easy to understand, interesting and fun.
I would love the opportunity to assist in your growth and development in the musical arts and remember… you’re never too young or too old to start!!!

He is a great teacher! He balances technique with expression in his teaching, from learning scales to performing pieces. He made it challenging, but fun. He taught me and all my siblings as well and they have all grown to appreciate music and gained skills that they use in other areas of music and learning.

Having worked with Nikita and knowing him personally, I hold him in very high regards. Not only Nikita is an outstanding performer and musician, but he also is a very strong teacher, who holds high level of professionalism. Nikita finds individual approach to each one of his students, helps them find passion for music within themselves and express it in their performance, all of which are key pedagogical qualities. Having music as an essence of his life, Nikita naturally sparks love for music in other people. Nikita gave me many helpful tips on how to become a better performer, as well as how to have the confidence to be one. But above all, Nikita has a very bright personality, a very lighthearted sense of humor and a natural ability drive people towards him. Nikita is a very inspiring young man.

Guitar Theory Basics: Understanding Keys
Curious about keys? Guitar teacher Alexander A. breaks down the guitar theory behind understanding keys... What key am I in? For most of the music we play this simple question yields a simple answer. I think the REAL question here is “why.” Why is a piece of music considered to be in the key of G major, or A minor, or any other key? I was in my 3rd semester of Jazz Harmony at Berklee when the instructor stumped the entire class with this question. I think the answer will surprise you. The
