I've been playing piano for over 20 years and have taught for over 10 years. I teach a variety of styles and I specialize in working with beginners. I'm the most patient teacher you will ever meet! For those who are looking to build basic playing and reading skills for piano, I enjoy using the Faber and Faber Piano Adventures series, and I've seen much success with it over the course of thousands of lessons! You can expect to develop your skills with scales, arpeggios and fingering patterns. For those who want an in-depth approach, I enjoy a theory-based method that helps the student to understand music in great detail. If you want to play some of your favorite songs, I'll show you how.

About Jared
I'm the most patient instructor you'll ever meet! Whether you're looking to learn to play an instrument you've always wanted to play, play some of your favorite songs, or just want to learn for fun, I'm here to help you.

I've been teaching in the Louisville area for nearly 8 years and have worked with over 125 clients for over 7,000 lessons. I'm fun, relaxed, and able to adjust to your particular needs. I have a rich background in music education and performance, having grown up with two professional musicians, performing in several prestigious music ensembles, and earning professional degrees in music performance and composition from the Wheaton Conservatory of Music. I've worked with students of all ages, backgrounds and abilities.

*** Lesson Details ***
I enjoy teaching all ages and abilities, from 5-year-old beginners to advan
ced students who'd like fine tuning. The vast majority of my students have been beginners. I'm relaxed and laid back while encouraging you to reach your potential. Whether you're an absolute beginner or a seasoned expert in need of some fine tuning, I'll carefully evaluate your strengths and weakness and create a lesson plan suited to your individual learning style, interests and needs. We'll discuss where you'd like to go with music, and I'll help you get there! After 3 or 6 months with me, you'll learn the musical foundations of rhythm, ear training, posture, technique, music theory and performance, and a few of your favorite songs!

Justin is a brilliant piano teacher. He is very engaging in his lessons and you can always be sure to learn and improve. Justin is flexible to both what you know and what you need improvement on and will quickly stretch to fortify your musical ability. He is never without a smile and never negatively criticizes. I would recommend him for any new students that are looking to learn or improve in piano.

Justin was very friendly and encouraging. We only had half an hour so we discussed the audition piece, warmed up, and focused on some of the trouble spots to see if the song I chose was right for my voice. If your looking for musical theatre assistance, he gives very good advice.

You'll learn about chords, chord structures, hand positions, scales, finger exercises, as well as different genres of music from classical to pop.

I've been playing piano for about 15 years. It's a very versatile instrument! Learning piano even opens the way to learning other instruments. It also helps with music theory (and you'll be learning some theory along the way, which will help your playing). The first lessons usually are spent learning notes, rhythms, hand positions, and even a few songs! As you progress, you'll start moving more fluently around the keyboard, playing chords, recognizing patterns, using the pedals, and even take on some songs you're personally interested in playing.

I'm not a strict teacher; I'd rather my students enjoy the learning process and have fun with their instrument. I teach every student a little differently based on their age, previous knowledge, goals, learning style, and personality. I encourage my students to practice thoughtfully - I ...

About Alison
***About Me***

I'm passionate about music and love sharing that through performance and teaching. As an active musician, I teach a full private lesson studio during the week and play gigs on the weekends. That's right, music is not just a "side-job" or a way to make a few "extra" bucks, it is actually my profession and I take teaching my students seriously. It is my goal to provide a solid foundation in music fundamentals while keeping students inspired as much as I can, especially because music can be tough sometimes!

I received my degree in viola performance from the University of Louisville School of Music in May 2010. I play violin, viola and piano regularly and have played them most of my life. On the weekends, I play viola in a string trio called Electria for weddings or events. We often play popular music on electric instrum
ents accompanied by backtracks. Playing popular music has expanded my knowledge and experience. Of course classical will always have a place! It is beautiful and timeless! But playing current music is also a lot of fun, and appeals to the modern student. There's room for all kinds of music and I embrace it all!

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm not a really strict teacher but I do encourage my students to push themselves and really make the most of their practice time, especially if they have busy schedules. I believe in customizing my teaching style to my student's needs and desires. I'm very positive and encouraging while never sacrificing constructive feedback.

***What to Expect***
After 3 months with a beginning Viola, Violin, or Piano student, I expect you to be able to read the notes (without having to write them all in), understand basic rhythms, have learned how to play a scale (or more), and have completed a few of songs.

After 6 months, I expect that my students will have relative ease with reading their music, playing with hands together on piano, and starting to master basic bowing techniques and coordination on Violin and Viola.

Learning an instrument is difficult, but so rewarding. With the right teacher it can be a wonderful experience, and that's my goal. I want music to be enjoyable, interesting, fun and enriching for my students. My style is encouraging, positive, and thoughtful... I try to teach in a way that is comprehensive and wholistic!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living Room, grand piano and an electric piano, room for parents to wait on a couch or chair, music stand, metronome

***What you should bring***
Sheet Music/Books
Rosin (for violin/viola students)

*** Specialties ***
I mainly focus on classical training, however I customize the teaching repertoire to incorporate my student's music tastes and interest. As I teach, I incorporate music theory so that my students may have a better understanding of how the music is structured because my goal is that they understand music from a wholistic perspective so that it can be enjoyed for a lifetime!

***Studio Policies***
I am flexible and easy to work with, however I am running a full private lesson studio and time is limited! I do require a 24-hour cancellation notice if you are unable to attend a lesson - as it does allow me to use that time to reschedule another student or optimize my time. If notice is given the day of your lesson, the lesson will be marked as "missed." With a day's notice, I will "cancel" the lesson and your lesson credit will not be used. You are welcome to reschedule your lesson to another available time during the week, however, the 24-hour notice still applies. I don't want to be unfair to you and I just ask the same of my students :)

Keep in mind, regular lessons really do make a difference in students' progress and enthusiasm, so I encourage you to keep a regular lesson schedule if possible!

About Rebeca
I have to be honest: teaching was the last thing I wanted. But I had the opportunity of working as an aid at a Montessori School and learned that I loved dealing with little kids. A few months later, an opportunity of becoming an Early Childhood Music Teacher showed up, and I found that I could join my two passions: music and children. I started teaching violin and piano a little after that and fell in love with the one-on-one approach to this whole thing!
With my Bachelor in Music Education, I learned to always approach teaching based on the music itself, but I also bring out the importance of the music theory so the student understands what they're doing. Little compositions and music appreciation are also a part of it all.

Hiromi is wonderful. This was my 13 year old son's first lesson on piano, and Hiromi tailor made the lesson to fit his level of experience. He was able to improv and experiment with the keyboard, and Hiromi guided him through perfectly, while then following up with structure. Thanks to Hiromi and a wonderful first lesson. :)

At age 71, my fist lesson with Steve was August 6, 2015. His instructional style, skillful listening, knowledge and passion for music inspired me to practice and practice and write and write. To those ends, Steve encouraged me to attend an Open Mic Night or two after 7 guitar lessons. Though I was shaking like a box of pills at my first OMN, I eventually overcame my fear and played and sang several blues tunes I'd written. My journey continues. Sometimes I feel like I'm six years old, yet I'm learning how to play better under Steve's guidance. His influence on me has been, and continues to be, profound. Steve's integrity is unimpeachable. I enthusiastically recommend Steve as a music teacher. Art Beane

Ms. Maria Lyapkova is not only an incredibly gifted pianist, but she is also a brilliant and inspiring instructor, proficient in teaching solo, chamber, and ensemble literature (for piano). Over the course of my two years in her piano ensemble class at the University of South Florida, I learned and progressed so much in terms of technique, musical sense and sensitivity, interpretation, practicing efficiently, and the art of performing, to name only a few.

During lessons and ensemble coaching sessions, Ms. Maria is extremely patient, kind, understanding. She is highly committed to teaching, able to work with students of any proficiency level, and always earnestly encouraging students to improve to the best they can. I will always remember the amazing lessons I had learning Arensky’s Suite No. 2, Op. 23 (“Silhouettes”) under her instruction!

Hello, my name is T.J. and here's why I can help you achieve your goal of learning piano: it's all about method! Learning how to play piano is not nearly as important as learning how to learn to play piano. What I'm saying is almost all of the piano playing that you will do to get better will be done without a teacher, however, spending time to learn the tools and techniques necessary to make you a productive, disciplined learner capable of critical thought will carry you much farther!

About Thomas
Hello, my name is T.J. Barnes and I'm currently finishing my bachelor's degree in Vocal Performance. I am a pianist and vocalist with a passion for music theory and vocal pedagogy. I've performed in a wide array of venues and styles and have experience as a music director and collaborative musician. I'm soon going to be pursuing my master's degree in choral conducting, but until then I have a desire to share the knowledge I have obtained in my years as a performer, musician, and director. I'm new to takelessons, though I'm not new to giving them, so say hi and ask some questions!
