Teaching Piano Lessons in Houston

By Patty N. - Houston Piano Teacher

Teaching Houston piano lessons has been more rewarding to me than any previous experience I have had. I used to live in a VERY small town in Kansas. My students wanted to learn piano, but that was pretty much as far as they could go. There weren’t events or contests, and opportunities to take their learned skills to play along with others were few and far between.

In Houston, the opportunities for my piano students are endless. There are piano classes at school, community groups for musicians, and even opportunities to play within their chu
rches. Some of my proudest moments are when my students walk into their Houston piano lessons and tell me about a time when they played one of their songs for a friend, or that their family was in town and they were able to show them what they had learned.

I highly recommend that up-and-coming musicians and music teachers to take on some students of their own. From this experience, I have been able to hone in on my own music skills along with my students, as well as expand my contacts with people in the music industry and school districts. It is a very rewarding and humbling experience when someone calls or emails me to ask for lessons, advice, or even a performance because of the work I have put in with another student. The hard work and dedication you put in to your Houston piano lessons will open doors to opportunities which would not be available to you without this experience.

Aleena is an amazing piano instructor.. She has truly been a blessing to me abd my daughter's life and teaching her how to play all types of music including classical music and her favorite song, "Fur Elise!" Aleena goes over and beyond to make sure her students are the "best of the best" and will not let them settle for anything less than that! I would recommend her to anyone who has a desire or passion for playing the piano and who loves the general aspect of music.. Aleena is patient, understanding, caring to all of her students and is always willing to help them reach their ultimate goals! Thanks so much for being an inspiration to me and my daughter and for helping her to create her musical path and finding a creative niche that she enjoys and wishes to pursue!

Elisabeth P.**

Houston, TX

Piano lessons consist of four main parts:
1. Technique - This includes scales, chords, arpeggios, and other fingering exercises to properly warm up the hands and improve muscle memory and help students recognize common patterns in music.
2. Repertoire - Students will play the pieces they have been practicing. This may include memorizing pieces and performing them in recitals.
3. Lesson - Students will learn new material and may receive a new piece to practice.
4. Music Theory - All piano students are required to learn music theory, which consists of one or more pages of homework to reinforce what the student has learned.

Fabulous

Elisabeth has just the right balance in what I hoped for in a teacher. She challenges me just enough for me to feel frustrated but like I'm growing, and she affirms my work just enough for me to feel good about myself and confident. She also has a great balance between a friendly energy and getting down to work.

Sara J.**

Tomball, TX

I have taught from beginners to intermediate piano and enjoy working with children of all ages. I enjoy helping people discover this beautiful instrument, as a focus in itself or to lend itself to other areas of musicianship. We can work on exercises, learning repertoire, reading music, rhythm, jazz chords, classical exercises and also composing on piano. Happy to take on absolute beginners also, I am also very experienced with young children as well as adult students.

About Sara

Born in Washington DC, I have been singing and studying voice since the age of 4. Starting out as a Broadway style belter and transitioning to opera mid-way through University, I have experienced many different vocal techniques and teachers. My voice was not an easy one to train and it took many years of searching to find a healthy technique that worked for me. For this reason I am dedicated to understanding each students vocal differences and help them reach the height of their potential. As a teacher I tailor my lessons to each individual student's needs and wants. Together we work to find a healthy and sustainable singing technique for different styles of music. I also focus on all aspects of being a performer and will improve consistency, musicianship and dramatic ...

Troy W.

Houston, TX

I have been teaching this subject for over 13 years. The main curriculum for beginners is Alfred's Basic Piano Library. There are three beginner levels (beginner, late, adult) and one will be selected after the first meeting. For non-beginning students, the course of study will be developed based on past experience, current abilities, and goals. It is not necessary to know how to read music at the first lesson for beginners. However, learning to read is a part of subsequent lessons. Music is not learned "by ear." A certain amount of theory will be a part of every lesson just as technique and repertoire. Students should come to the first lesson prepared to discuss their background & goals and the plan of their course of study.

About Troy

Composer Troy W. graduated from the New England Conservatory, earning his Bachelors, Masters (cum laude) and Graduate Diploma while studying with mentor Malcolm Peyton. After spending a year studying with Lukas Foss in Boston, Mr. W. moved to Houston in 2001 where he continued graduate studies at Rice University's Shepherd School of Music. During his time as a teacher with the Michael P.

Troy is the best vocal instructor ever! I feel like I hit the jackpot in finding him as my coach. He is extremely knowledgeable and great at communicating concepts that might otherwise be difficult to understand. My vocal technique and confidence has improved so much since I started taking lessons from Troy in September 2014. I was so impressed with my progress with Troy that I have now expanded my lessons to twice a week. Troy is great at making a plan to help me achieve my goals, and he is right with me every step of the way. I am so grateful to have an instructor that not only helps me get better, but also has an inspiring attitude to share a love for music.

Rebecca L.

Houston, TX

Rather than music being just a definition term, music has a broader meaning that many people don't realize. I believe music itself is not the only thing people can learn from lessons alone, but the ability to concentrate, develop characteristics such as patience, and dedication. That being, music teaches very important life skills to carry. Being in the music industry, I've aspired that teaching is not always expecting perfect results in terms of performance, but the perfectionist results of having integrity, in addition to having a genuine passion for music itself.

About Rebecca

Hi! My name is Rebecca and I can't wait to meet you! I started learning the piano when I was 5, violin and viola when I was 7, and have taught all these instruments since I was in middle school (over 10 years!). I love helping my students achieve their goals and fulfill their passion. . I received my bachelor's degree in music performance at Rice University, and I am currently back at Rice for master's degree. I grew up in Taiwan, and I am fluent in Mandarin Chinese. I would love to help anyone learning a second language and tell you more about the culture! I look forward to helping you reach your goals!
