"Experienced piano teacher of 30 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 piano skills. I specialize classical, jazz and contemporary music typically use Hal Leonard books, and also have the following tools available to use during lessons: sound recording equipment, sheet music, and more.

About Kelvin
I am a highly organized, outcome-driven and motivated professional musician and educator with solid experience in the classroom. For the past 25 years, I have been employed with Amati music academy and seven years on the faculty of University of St Francis.
I am very comfortable with all aspects of the current music syllabus, including teaching musical concepts (such as duration, pitch, dynamics, tone color, texture and structure) as well as performance, composition. I am fully qualified, with a Bachelor of Education in Music, Double Masters in music performance and education from University of Nottingham.
I am proficient in classical, jazz and Celtic fiddle violin and possess solid skills in piano (grade 8-13) Royal conservatory system.
Throughout my teaching career, I have been driven to help students achieve their very best. I str
ongly believe that music has the power to change lives – to enhance the social, cultural and spiritual lives of people, and serve as a profound medium of personal expression. Professional perform experience: The Chicago, Natalie Cole, Smokey Robinson, Three tours with Moody Blues, YoYo Ma etc....
The most important thing I look for in a student is communication skills, as well as talent. I like to nurture students and help identify their individual strengths, which is a key factor in shaping a musical persona that will make its mark both on and offstage. I do not advocate a uniform technique for all students. Physical differences and learning styles are always taken into consideration. Potential is as important to me as early achievements and experience. My goal is to help students become self-sufficient, discriminating artists. I discuss practice techniques often and develop individualized scale routines. I encourage initiative and expressive musicality as well as precision. Above all, music needs to bring obvious joy to the student, regardless of the difficulties.”

About Sarah Faith B.

Payson, AZ
View Full Profile

Each lesson is individually tailored by using repertoire from the Royal Conservatory (Music Development Program in the US), Russian School of Piano Playing, Celebration Series, Music For Little Mozarts, Alfred, Bastien, and many more effective learning series. Students will receive a variety of practice techniques, etudes, repertoire pieces, theory & history lessons, improvisational and composition lessons to give them a rounded understanding of music.

Performances will be offered each semester. Students have the option to participate in with the Arizona Study Program and/or the Royal Conservatory Program every year.

About Sarah Faith
Studying classical music techniques gave way to my self-expression, songwriting, and the confidence to be the individual I am today. While finishing degree, professors empowered me to become the best individual I could be. I had the privilege of touring Western Europe, New York and the Southwestern US; several of my compositions and prepared classical pieces were performed; and I had the privilege to beginning Trinity Music Studio.

In elementary school I began studying piano, flute and music theory. Near the end of high school I had a dream of a new composition, and when I got to school the next day I wrote it down. That was the beginning of my composition career. For more examples of my works, please visit https://soundcloud.com/siobhan-468364094.

Each lesson is tailored by using repertoire from various learning series. Students w
ill receive a variety of techniques, etudes (study pieces), performance pieces (repertoire) along with theory, history, improvisation and composition lessons to give them a rounded music education.

I've taken many piano classes with Sarah at the college level, and I can confidently say that she is one of the most driven, professional, and inspired musicians I've had the pleasure to work with. I was blown away when I discovered that she could professionally play instruments other than the piano, as her skills at the piano compare to those who have dedicated their entire lives to just that one instrument. She is a true musician, through and through.

About Joseph
PIANO / VOCAL / ORGAN / CONDUCTING - I am a music educator and performer that loves working with individuals from the young child to professionals. I taught public school for 12 years and then taught at The College of Saint Rose in Albany, NY for the last 14. My degrees are from Western Michigan University, Indiana University, and Ball State University. During my teaching career, I provided private lessons outside of the school and the college. When I left NY, I had 35 students of which 6 remained with me online. I love teaching and create an atmosphere where the students, regardless of age, feel successful in their endeavors.

WHAT DO I TEACH?
*Piano: All levels from beginning to professional
*Organ: All levels from beginning to professional
*Voice: Beginning and those working with music theater
*Condu
cting: All levels

WHERE DO I TEACH?
*Piano: Mililani Homes, St Peter’s Episcopal & Online

*Voice: St. Peter’s Episcopal (In person lessons only)
*Conducting: St. Peter's Episcopal (In person lessons only)

NOTE: Parents are welcomed to attend the lessons!
In fact, I encourage that!!

WHAT IS MY STYLE OF TEACHING?
Every student is different and what works for one may not work for another. It's important for me to know my students so I can better shape the lesson. I love questions, reflection, and humor. I'm very patient and understanding. We are all incredibly busy and accept that students may have weeks they are not able to practice a huge amount of time.

WHAT DO I DO IN ADDITION TO GIVING LESSONS?
I am a Bereavement Coordinator at Bristol Hospice, Director of Music at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Honolulu and Conductor of the Na Leo Malama Singers.

This is my first time taking any kind of vocal lessons so I was very nervous. Joseph made me feel very comfortable and really works on what I want to improve on. He is encouraging and very supportive of my ambitious singing goals. I just purchased another month's worth of lessons. Would definitely recommend.

About Jacob K.

Kaneohe, HI

I place a heavy emphasis on not just playing but understanding the music. Understanding what you're playing is a key difference between an amateur and a professional musician.

Music is all about relationships and patterns. The more patterns and relationships you learn to readily recognize and identify the more affluent you become in your musical mastery.

About Jacob
Hi, my name is Jacob. I have been teaching music lessons for a living for over 10 years. I graduated with my Ba. in music composition from the University of Oregon in 2008. I play and teach all styles of music including classical and jazz. I currently have a full schedule of well over 40 students on piano, guitar, and ukulele. I live in Kailua and teach both on the windward side as well as downtown. I also teach music at Navy Hale Keiki Elementary school.
My students ages range from 4 - adult and I have plenty of experience with all age groups.

Learning to play music can only bring many positive assets to your life. I will help you learn the basic techniques that will get you to use music not only as a form of self-expression but also as a great activity to develop your cognitive senses. My comprehensive classes will cover music theory, exploration of different genres and techniques customized to your personal tastes and goals.

About Tommy
Hello friends! My name is Tommy S. I am originally from Venezuela and I currently live in Miami. Throughout almost all of my life, I have always been invested in music. I studied classical piano for over 9 years, and I developed my skills in songwriting and composition as I grew older. I have studied the techniques in music while also caring about the importance of self-expression. I believe music is the most genuine way to channel our emotions and understand our feelings.

My interest in music has led me to explore the many different branches of it. From playing instruments like the piano and the guitar to composing, singing and performing live. I also have a Bachelor's degree in Audio Engineering, where I studied music recording and production, and I have been able to produce original music that has led me to participate in interes
ting projects and even win a few awards. Currently, I work in music public relations along with international Latin Music artists, helping them reach different audiences and grow their careers.

I always like to expand keep expanding my knowledge, learning new things, meeting new people and exploring new experiences. Some of my favorite things to do other than music are swimming, kayaking, writing, and spending time with my friends and family.

I believe that music can have strong impacts on people's lives and my goal is to spread the magical gifts that music has to give.

I always had some basic understanding of how to play piano, the basic thing we’re taught in school for a few months and then we forget. Now, thanks to Tommy’s patience and dedication I can finally feel confident in my skills with piano. He’s always punctual and i can’t emphasize enough about how PATIENT he is because god knows he needed patience with my rusty fingers.
One thing that stands above everything is how he can share his passion for music with his students. 10/10 would recommend.

We love to sing in my studio so if that's your goal let's do it! If your goal is accompaniment - I have a great program that will easily fit your needs. Classical or jazz? Adult beginner? I gotcha covered! We can even compose short background music for a movie. I teach ages 5+ and would love to get you started in online lessons!

About Cathy
I am a professional musician teaching for 20 years. I love to inspire students by focusing on highly creative programs that not only teach the fundamentals of music but also encourage a student's natural creativity through composition and improvisation.

My background includes formal voice and piano with the founding members of Opera San Jose-New York Metropolitan Opera Singer Irene Dalis, Oberlin College Professor David Rohrbaugh and SJSU Choral Director Dr. Charlene Archibeque. I have performed with the San Jose Symphony and San Jose Opera. I was a scholarship recipient and graduate of San Jose State University, received a Bachelor of Music Degree in Vocal Performance, a secondary teaching credential in music education and have attended courses at the University of California Davis Mind Institute for a certificate in autism studies.


Credentials include: Former Co-Representative for the Greater Bay Area Chapter of the California Partnership of Kindermusik Educator’s, and currently a member of the Carnegie Hall Royal Conservatory Achievement Program. In addition, I am the founder of the San Diego International Music Teachers Symposium, Innovative Music Conferences, The Special Needs Resource Fair and was recognized by Kindermusik International as a maestro.

During the first months of my teaching I received several inquiries from parents with children on the autism spectrum who could not find a piano teacher who would take them. After researching and working with these families, my studio became one of the largest that provided all inclusive and adapted music lessons to students with just under 400 students. My work with special needs students was the focus of a 2009 documentary film in which several of my students and parents were featured discussing the effects music education had on their child.
