Clarence P.

Richmond, VA

I work to build a strong basic foundation in my students. This allows them to pursue whatever style they may elect.

About Clarence

Clarence P. saw one of his older friends playing a trombone in elementary school band and became intrigued with wanting to play it also. He approached his father about renting one and thus began Clarence’s musical experience.

George Ross, a nationally renowned contra-bassoonist was his first music instructor.

After elementary school, Clarence continued to play trombone in middle school under the direction of Dave Williams a well-known woodwinds player in the swing jazz community. He became first chair and continued his musical experience in high school under Paul Cartwright, a cellist
in the Richmond Symphony Orchestra and Robert Momchilov. He also learned to play the baritone horn and was awarded a medal for outstanding musicianship his senior year. With the encouragement of both his parents and Mr. Momchilov, Clarence applied for and was accepted into the music program of Virginia Commonwealth University.

While at VCU, Clarence played with other bands and developed a desire to compose music. Because of this desire he also saw the value of learning and knowing the piano and began piano training. His instructors would say, “The better you play the better you will compose.” After achieving a Bachelors of Music Education Degree, Clarence attending Graduate School at Virginia Commonwealth University studying music composition and electronic music.

Clarence has been involved with a number of performing arts schools and programs, with the movie industry, gotten a couple of songs published in Nashville and the experience of being in a professional Nashville Studio and being around professional Nashville Musicians, and taught a number of students of all ages. A number have gone on to major in music. He continues to compose, teach, and is involved with video and audio recording.

Clarence has been blessed with a number of outstanding instructors who have taught him that hard work, persistence/repetition and the desire to do well leads to success. Also with instruction and learning, patience is an important attribute. He tries to pass these lessons on to his students and strives to be conscientious towards them as his instructors were to him. As his instructors us to tell him, “you have to pay your dues (do the work)” but also to give back as you have been blessed. Be open-minded and look for the best. There is beauty in all things and all types of music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I strive to be thorough with my lessons. I want students to enjoy taking lessons but to understand that doing things correctly will help them to achieve a lot faster and become better musicians. Technique is very important and encourage my students to develop good form and habits when playing and practicing. We all have gifts to develop and our reward is the development of those gifts by the work and time we devote to them.

I use Hanon to develop finger strength and technique and inform the students that it is a method that beginners to professionals can always use. Understanding the basic rudiments of music such as scales, intervals, triads, chords, keys is also taught. Books that help with the basics of reading music are used but I progress the students according to their abilities. Their progress depends on their practice. I always encourage them to enjoy what they are doing and to build upon what they accomplish.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I require the students to have a piano or a keyboard with piano- sized keys

*** Specialties ***
I am comfortable teaching classical piano. I believe that students should receive a strong foundation in music. When they develop strong skills, they can move on to other genres.

Clarence has been teaching my daughter for over a year. He is a wonderful teacher who is soft-spoken, persistent and has the perfect amount of firmness (that she needs). He sets clear expectations, teaches the critical skills and leaves some time for my daughter to play what she enjoys. She really enjoys her lessons with him and I am amazed with how much she enjoys learning piano.

Sandra H.

Henrico, VA

"Experienced Piano teacher of 7 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of classical and popular piano skills. I specialize in rock, spiritual, patriotic and standard music and typically use the Alfred series books for all ages. I teach music theory, ear training, dynamics, technic as well as sight reading. I also have the following tools available to use during lessons: piano, sheet music, keyboard charts and more. Let a caring teacher bring the love of music into your life. Let your talent shine.

About Sandra

I studied under Mr. Willis Ley at Ley Studio for eighteen years. She was an accompanist for the Heritage School of Dance for twelve years and also played for the School for the Richmond Ballet for One Year. Sandra was trained in contemporary, patriotic and classical music as well as music theory. She has taught children and adults piano both in their homes as well as in her home. She is an accomplished pianist who will give the student a rewarding and fulfilling experience in mastering the keyboard to their fullest potential and play any song for there own enjoyment and for the enjoyment
of others.

*** Lesson Details ***
As a teacher, I would work with the student on learning there favorite song. This would be a goal to set for the student for the first three months. They would be taught to do the scale with their right hand. They would learn there sharps and flats and the difference between the two key signatures. They would also learn during the first six months some of the basic terms in music theory. I would set goals, but never overwhelm the student, but work with them according to how much they could take in. They would have weekly assignments. If an assignment is not mastered during that time, then we would review it and carry it to the next week. When one assignment is mastered, then the student would work on the next. This would be a step by step processed. My goal for the student the first six months is to get that child or adult to be able to play their chords in their left hand, octaves and fillings in their right hand and know how to work the pedals. They would understand and know the key signatures and what timing they are playing in. The student would also know some of the basic music terms. Please keep in mind that this depends on how much information that the student can process. With some it could take a little bit longer. With others it would take less time.

*** Studio Equipment ***
f/w keyboard ("It's heavy, it was metal inside it!") w/ seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect payment on any music material that I purchase at the Music Store.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Rock, Classical, Patriotic, Standard and Spiritual and also children's music for beginners. I do a wide range of music from the fifties up to today.

Sandra is an incredible instructor. I have a background in music having been an active member of my school choir since 2nd grade. As an adult I had an interest in returning to music, but this time to learn an instrument. Sandra's lessons were comprehensive, engaging, and extremely helpful. She is an incredible teacher who is both kind and patient, while possessing a keen ear for music. Her skill as both instructor and pianist are undeniable. I strongly recommend Sandra to any student, regardless of age or skill level! She is truly a passionate and engaged instructor who takes deep personal interest in her students.
