Brenda B.

Jacksonville, FL

I teach piano to all students and levels, beginner to advanced.

About Brenda

Hi, there! My name is Brenda Blanchard and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 1985 and have loved helping my students become well rounded piano players, skilled and highly expressive artists and outstanding musicians.
A good musical foundation is important in having a sound piano technique and skill. One should be able to learn theory and methods easily with me. However, it is interesting to note that as my student you can develop your own artistry and technique as well. These are what I hope to deliver as your teacher ---help you learn the theory, skills,
technique and method in a fun and casual environment! Remember ... our goal is to learn as much as we can in every lesson and try to throw any questions you might have during the class. It will be greatly appreciated. To let you know more about myself, at age 5, I started playing the piano and went on to finishing Piano Pedagogy from Saint Louis Music Center and B.S. Mass Communications from Saint Louis University . My career as a music educator started when I taught piano at the Yamaha School of Music. Ten years of classical training me has helped me attain this rewarding career. As a child, I have had the opportunity to be a € performer and an accompanist to many choral groups in school. My musical experiences also include performing in Cafe Vasilici€, San Leandro, California, where I can play all styles especially classical music. The ability to sight read is just one of the many endowments I can teach. Others include, an impeccable love for music and a good ear for music.
Brenda showed talent and a keen interest in piano playing at an early age of 5. She underwent extensive and rigid musical training at the Saint Louis Music Center (an independent music school exclusively run by the Nuns of Saint Louis University, Baguio City, Philippines) from the years 1972 to 1981. Under the tutelage of Mrs. Edna Maniquis, she learned how to effectively sight read any song, memorize her recital pieces and be very proficient in piano playing. In 1984, she continued to study with Mrs. Linda Lirag Reynado, a St. Paul's College Conservatory of Music graduate with a Major in Piano, Minor in Voice and who is the founder and owner of Baguio Music Studio, Philippines. In 1992 she finished a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Education and Piano Pedagogy from Saint Louis University.
As a piano student in her early years, she had the opportunity to become a finale performer in her student recitals gaining recognition as the best performer in her class. Growing up, during her high school and college years, she was involved with accompanying singers or chorus groups on the piano and joining in competitions where she won several awards and distinctions. Her musical experiences include playing in front of an audience and performing all styles and especially classical music.
Her 16 years of classical training also helped her attain a teaching position at the Yamaha School of Music in the Philippines and a rewarding teaching career at the Florida Conservatory of Music in Jacksonville, Florida.

*** Lesson Details ***
Have you ever started playing piano but got stumped and frustrated with the theory? Then you've come to the right class. I will teach you the keyboard skills and fundamentals you will need to become a successful pianist. I will provide you a step-by-step explanation on how to play the piano. If you need help with the written theory and you want to learn more about how to read and write notes, all you need to do is to enroll in my class. My instruction includes activities that will help you use the musical alphabet to read and write notes on the staff, identify intervals, and write sharps and flats. Not only will I emphasize note reading but I will help you develop a keen intelligent understanding of the musical notes and alphabet. In no time you will be playing the piano or keyboard and most especially read and play any music as you appreciate it!

It takes time and effort to learn how to play the piano and not all are expected to become wizards at it. For the most part, students should practice the piano/keyboard more often than not and just keep up with the course requirements when enrolled in my class. It takes enthusiasm, interest and most of all perseverance to play the piano however, with me you will succeed and be driven to become a good and skilled pianist!

I have been taking lessons with Raymond for about 3 years and I am very satisfied with the content and enjoyment of each lesson. Raymond is a highly skilled and experienced musician and a very patient and joyful teacher. He expands on the published course content and each lesson is directed at a specific goal or acquiring a specific skill. His location, home and lesson room are very comfortable. Given all of that, your success will depend only on your time and dedication to your playing.

I've taken a few lessons so far with Remi. I am a fairly musical person and started playing piano and cello when I was very young, but never picked up the guitar. Remi's approach seems to be well-tailored toward the individual. He puts things in terms I can understand and appears to use my strengths to my benefit and to give me items to practice that work on my weaknesses. Really enjoying the lessons.

Lena L.

Jacksonville, FL

For all ages start at 7

The development of the piano lessons will depend on the level, goals, needs and available time of study of each student. Starting with board exercises that will provide independence and strengthen the fingers of both hands, studying at the same time the rhythmic figures, elements and symbols of a score.
I propose a flexible program to keep students excited and motivated, the idea is to make a diverse and entertaining class, although it is important to consider that the piano is a very rich instrument (rhythmic, harmonic and melodic instrument), which gives us many possibilities, but that requires constant practice to achieve a beautiful sound.​​

About Lena

Member of Jacksonville Symphony Chorus​.

so glad to have found Miss Lena! My daughter absolutely adores her. I love having concerts/recitals every so often, it gives her a goal to reach for & they get so proud of themselves. My daughter usually cannot sit still but loves Miss Lena's teaching style, she makes it fun. My daughter will be attending camp with her this summer, getting exposed to a little bit of everything. Miss Lena is talented & passionate about all of the arts, not just piano, not just singing but drama & all art. It is reflected in her home/studio. Her passion seems to rubbing off on my daughter & it is so worth it...thank you Miss Lena!

I am an adult who took private piano lessons with Scott for about couple of months two years ago (as far as I can remember). I wasn't able to continue afterwards for personal reasons. He's my first professional piano teacher. He's a very good piano teacher for both adults and young students; he could recognize my skill level easily during piano lesson. He also uses advanced multimedia technology to accompany his piano lessons, which enhances student learning experience. I definitely recommend him to any students of all ages and of all levels.
