Elizabeth E.

Indianapolis, IN

I've been teaching piano for 5 years and have played for 25 years. I recently moved from Dallas, where I taught a studio of 25 students. I teach all ages and ability levels and specialize in classical piano. You'll start by learning the basics of technique, note reading, and music theory, and soon you'll be playing a variety of music from your favorite styles!

About Elizabeth

I have taught private piano lessons to students ages 5 to adult since 2011. I'm a member of the Indianapolis Piano Teachers Association and also work frequently as an accompanist for middle and high school band students competing in solo competitions. I studied piano for 15 years, including as a student at the Jacobs School of Music at IU and at Rocky Ridge Music Center in Estes Park, Colorado. In addition to teaching piano, I work as an adjunct professor of history and enjoy spending time with my husband, Jay, and our beagle, Ellie.

I structure my lessons according to students' individual
interests and strengths, while building a strong foundation in piano technique and music theory. With beginning and intermediate students I typically use the Piano Adventures series of books, which I supplement with music in a variety of styles ranging from authentic classical repertoire to jazz. Whatever your experience or goals, we'€™ll work together to come up with a plan that works for you.

I'm a patient, encouraging teacher and we have fun during lessons. I also expect my students to practice daily at home so that they can make steady progress.

PLEASE NOTE: Students need to have a piano, whether acoustic or digital, to practice on at home. This is necessary in order for students to progress and to develop good piano technique. If you prefer to purchase an electric piano, look for one with touch-sensitive, weighted keys, which will mimic the feel and dynamic capabilities of an acoustic piano. If you do not have a piano, I'm happy to offer advice on finding a suitable one before your first lesson.

Jay E.

Indianapolis, IN

I've been teaching piano for 3 years, and my students have been making excellent progress. I specialize in classical and pop music, and typically use either the Faber, Alfred, or Music Tree methods. I require daily practice from my students and I ask that they own a piano or keyboard in goo working condition with all 88 keys (keyboards must be touch sensitive). I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Jay

My musical journey began the with piano at the age of seven. I took regular lesson all the way through high school, eventually performing works such as Gershwin Etudes, Chopin Waltzes, Debussy Arabesques, and Beethoven Piano Sonatas. My trumpet performing started in 1993 and continues, having earned two degrees in trumpet performance, and performed with groups such as the Las Colinas Symphony Orchestra and Lone Star Wind Orchestra.

I have been teaching privately for 13 years, most recently having a studio of around 50 students in the Dallas area, where my students have performed at even
ts such as the state solo and ensemble contest in Austin, and it groups such as the Texas All State Band, and Greater Dallas Youth Orchestra to name a few. I now continue my private lesson instruction in Indianapolis. I have learned to adjust my teaching technique to match each individual, whether it be the music difficulty, learning pace, or musical genre preference. I have taught trumpet students of all ages and abilities, as well as beginning and intermediate piano and french horn. I look forward to helping you make beautiful music on your instrument!

My teaching philosophy

Private lessons are a one on one experience that give students guidance on their specific musical needs. Rather than only working on pieces for un upcoming audition or competition, I emphasize working on a variety of repertoire that will improve all aspects of one’s musicianship. Lessons are not a weekly practice or coaching session, but rather a time for me to help students with what they have already been practicing. More specifically, I help with embouchure formation, tone production, note reading, practice technique, musical phrasing, breathing, performance anxiety, rhythm, music theory, bad habits, or anything that will help the student make better music in the long term. I also frequently provide musical examples and inspiration by playing for my students.

Lesson Policies

Students are required to practice a minimum of fifteen to forty-five minutes per day (depending on the student’s age), six days per week.

Students are responsible for purchasing their own lesson materials, such as books, valve oil, metronome, etc. Piano students must also have a well maintained piano to practice on. High quality electric keyboards with all 88 weighted and touch sensitive keys are acceptable.

I have a 24-hour lesson rescheduling policy. If a student fails to provide notice via phone call, text or email at least 24 hours prior to the starting time of the lesson, or misses a lesson unannounced, the student will be charged for the full lesson cost. If adequate notification is given, the lesson will be made up at a later date. Lessons may not be missed without rescheduling, except for the months of December, July, and August. During any or all of these months, due to holidays and vacations, students may miss one lesson without rescheduling.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Clavinova keyboard with weighted keys

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide no equipment

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical, jazz, and commercial, having experience in all three areas. I teach a lot of ear training and music theory regardless of the instrument.

Josh L.

Indianapolis, IN

I studied classical piano for 15 years and contemporary for 8+ so I enjoy teaching aspiring pianists to reach their full potential. I teach classical as well as contemporary piano.

About Josh

I am a professional singer, pianist, songwriter, and recording artist. I graduated from Indiana Wesleyan University with a Bachelors of Music, specifically voice.

Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied classical piano for 16 years, and contempora
ry keyboard for 7 of those. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student.

As a professional recording artist I frequently take trips to Nashville for co-writing, recording, and meeting with record labels. I have written with well-known writers like Mia Fieldes from Hillsong, Tony Wood from Provident Label Group, Stu G from Delirious?, and Jon Steingard from Hawk Nelson. I love to mentor students who want to become effective, dynamic songwriters.

My personal passion is contemporary music but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

I start taking singing lesson with Dana from last may, she's kind and encouraging. In the first lesson I was always thinking of my pitch which goes really strange, and I was so scared of my own voice that for several times I could not sing properly. She encouraged me a lot and always helpful when it comes to technical difficulties. I learned a lot from her.
