Patti C.

Murrysville, PA

About Patti

Hi! I am a classically trained pianist originally from Syracuse, NY. I graduated from Allegheny College in Meadville, PA where I studied piano under Professor Alec Chien. I also enjoyed playing the French horn and percussion with the Allegheny Wind Symphony and Wind Ensemble.

I have performed numerous piano solo recitals, as a featured pianist with the Allegheny Wind Ensemble, in piano duos, a piano quartet, small instrumental groups and in the pit orchestra for musical productions. I know the skills and technique needed to play as a soloist and in different types of groups. I am eager t
o share this with aspiring pianists.

I have 6+ years experience teaching private lessons to young children and 3 years experience in teaching fun group EZ play organ classes to senior citizens. My senior year I was also a substitute teacher for beginning class piano at Allegheny College.

So whether you’re looking to study as a serious pianist, just as a hobbyist or somewhere in between, I can guide and teach you along your journey.

I started piano lessons when I was 8 and music has been a part of who I am ever since. My goal as a teacher is to make a students' experience positive and rewarding. I have studied under 3 piano teachers in my life. Each teacher had a positive influence on me personally and musically. I strive to do the same for my students.

I am the strongest and most comfortable working with beginners of all ages. I get great joy out of seeing people realize their dreams or desire to start playing the piano.

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to use the Bastien or Alfred piano methods. Students will be engaged and excited with the progress they make. For the younger students 5-7 I prefer the Bastien method which includes 2 books: lesson book and theory/technique book. For young students 8 and up the Bastien method includes 4 books: lesson, Theory, Technique and Performance/Solo. For adults I use the Alfred's Basic All-in-One Piano Course. Once students are ready I incorporate chord progressions, scales, sight reading and ear training into the lessons. Each lesson builds on the concepts and skills learned in prior lessons. I provide an opportunity for students to perform in a recital twice a year to show family and friends their progress.

I put great importance on proper technique right from the start. Poor technique can frustrate a student and therefore hinder their enjoyment and sense of accomplishment.

Lessons incorporate things that appeal to different learning styles. For example, a visual learner may really enjoy the flashcards to help learn the notes on the staff. For an audible learner they may look forward to hearing me play a new musical passage for him/her before talking about it. Finally, clapping a rhythm before playing it can really benefit the kinesthetic learner.

My two girls started taking piano lessons in Kindergarten and were very excited to learn. That enthusiasm didn't last long when teacher after teacher showed irritation and a lack of patience with young learners. We went through SIX teachers and were asked by friends why we continued our search for the RIGHT teacher. I knew the girls wanted to play and the problem wasn't that they were children, the problem was finding that teacher who had great patience, an even temper, and one who could move students through those periods of tough times. We found THAT teacher in Ms. Patty!!!!! We have been with her now for two years. The girls are practicing now for their fourth recital and absolutely love playing. They have learned so much more than piano. They have learned patience by example...... Ms. Patty is the best ever!!!!!! <3

I am an older adult who has been taking lessons from Patti for over 2 years now. She has been extremely patient with me and I'm happy with her teaching style. As a person who just wants piano lessons for fun (and to keep my brain working), Patti is glad to accommodate me in having a say as to what music selections I want to learn. I would highly recommend her.

Bruce M.

Johnstown, PA

About Bruce

I have been playing the guitar seriously for approximately 32 years. I taught myself to play while enlisted in the US Navy. Using books and playing by ear were my methods of learning. I began writing songs shortly after learning to play, this was quite a satisfying outlet for all sorts of emotions! As a civilian I have been in various bands from Blues to Classic Rock to Heavy Metal. All were learning experiences, plus a lot of fun! I also play bass guitar and can provide lessons on that if you are interested.
I am a paraplegic and cannot come to your location so if you are intere
sted I am located in Richland behind Walmart. I have been instructing people for a number of years but not as a formal teacher. I would like to take time now to teach what I have learned over the years to whoever is interested in learning this marvelous instrument that brings me so much pleasure! Thank you for considering me for your learning experience!

I worked with Mr. Pickering for three years when he was my high school choir director and it was a great experience for me. He inspired me to work my hardest and always push myself to be better than I was the day before. Now I am studying to be a music teacher myself; I hope to inspire my students to be their best just like he did.
