Phillip F.

Rural Hall, NC

Phillip teaches any level from ages 4-100. Anyone can learn at any age.

About Phillip

Pianist and singer Phillip F. started learning to play the piano at age 6. Growing up he competed and placed highly in many competitions including playing with the Symphony Orchestra in his home town of Spartanburg, SC after winning it's concerto competition at the age of 17. In college he took piano from Dr. Charles Fugo at the University of South Carolina and also started taking voice lessons from Tonya Currier and Walter Cuttino. While still in college he worked with The South Carolina Opera company for a season as a member of the ensemble and as Chorus Master.
Since college, he has work
ed with different theater and opera companies as a lead actor and as a musician.
He has many years of teaching experience with piano at all experience levels.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have experience teaching since 1995 while I was still in college. I primarily use Alfred and "Faber & Faber" piano methods for beginners. I teach how to read music, understand the theory behind the music, and the technique needed in a patient atmosphere at the pace of the student. I also teach you how the piano works and the different types of pianos as well as the history of keyboards used for different classical music. The lessons are geared toward the goals of the student no matter what level is desired.
In teaching singing, I will teach you the basics necessary to create a healthy and relaxed sound through technique. With experience singing music ranging from classical to contemporary church music to musical theater, I can teach you how to use the voice in a way that will promote a long time of singing without adding stress to the voice. I will work with any style of music and will give you the technique and confidence needed to become a better singer.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Walk into house, on left is a room with a piano and books with big windows to look out through room. Pianos are an upright piano and an Alesis Synthesiser. Seating is available for parents as well.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to have a piano or an electric keyboard at home for piano lessons. For voice lessons a keyboard is not required but is helpful.

*** Specialties ***
I primarily teach piano in a classical style using either "Faber & Faber" or Alfred Methods for piano lessons.
For voice, I teach all my students to sing in a way that will be the most beneficial to the health of their voice. Doing this is helpful to all styles of singing.

Heather E.

Kernersville, NC

I would love to help you learn to play piano! I specialize in beginner students and pop styles. I use the Piano Adventures curriculum to give an introduction to classical piano and teach how to read music. I also use chord charts and demonstration to teach pop/keyboard style playing. This is a great way to learn how to jam or play something you love from the radio. I look forward to meeting you!

Peter R.

Greensboro, NC

I have vast experience with both Suzuki and traditional methods and utilize a student-centered approach based on each student's age, level, and specific musical interests,abilities and goals.. Learning piano requires patience,discipline and above all a feeling of enjouyment any time a student sits down at a piano or keyboard, or comes to a lesson. I pride myself on my ability to establish a good rapport with all my students and am happy to work on pieces or songs of their choosing.

About Peter

I recently relocated to Greensboro.

For the last two decades, I have had the privilege of teaching piano at two of the largest and most successful community music schools in the Southeast: the Columbia Arts Academy, based in Columbia, SC, and the Jan Williams School of Music and Theatre, based in Brentwood, TN, just outside of Nashville.

During my years as a piano teacher in community music schools, I have successfully instructed and interacted with a student population representing a vast range of ages, aptitudes, attitudes, races, ethnicities and countries of origin. My retention numbe
rs have been excellent, and I have prepared hundreds of students for recitals. I have taught and performed extensively across the wide spectrum of music, including classical, jazz and popular music, with a particular expertise in jazz, blues and rock music.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have

I am an adult with no prior knowledge of music or experience with any musical instrument; however, Pete's classes have really made me believe in myself. He has a great deal of passion and knowledge and is ever so patient that one never feels inhibited during the learning process. I am thoroughly enjoying my classes, and the thought of an evening class is what keeps me going during my packed schedule at work

Great first lesson. Peter was very patient, taking time to explain everything and did not rush me. I felt very at ease and he met me at my level but was willing to help me reach a little if that was what I wanted. He was very clear on what I needed to work on for the next week. He went over everything to make sure I understood and knew that he was available for any questions.

Lisa O.

Greensboro, NC

Usually, I teach 30 minute lessons but open to hour lessons with more advanced students. I'm not here to make a performance major out of every child. I'm here to teach children to love to learn at their talent level.

About Lisa

I took 17 consecutive years of lessons and I hold a B.S. degree in music education with a proficiency in piano and a secondary in voice.

Since I was not a performance major my studies were seriously geared towards learning how to teach music well to all ages and also teaching them to enjoy learning by not just pushing students to perform!

My passion to teach is greater than my passion to perform. A good performer doesn't always make for the best teacher.

I home schooled my own two kids for 14 years who then went on to GTCC early middle college and now are both honor students at UNC
campuses. So I know how to deal with very smart and wiggly kids both male and female!

I'm gladly accepting students for the summer as well as for the fall semester and will be happy to meet with anyone for an interview beforehand to answer scheduling and fee questions.

Let's learn together! :)

My daughter loves her and can't wait to come to her lessons each week. I highly recommend Lisa to anyone who is looking for a piano instructor.
