Beginning piano taught. I prefer to teach children for piano. Studied most recently Bulent Guneralp.

The beginner student of piano will learn to read music and proper posture for performance. We will quickly learn simple songs, and combine technical exercises in a fun manner to encourage students to want to practice.

About Tegan
I have taught private instruction and group instruction in such varied subjects as Music Theory/Ear Training, Woodwinds, and Crochet. I completed a B.A. of Music at University of Massachusetts - Boston, in August, 2014. As a working musician, I currently perform oboe with the Brockton Symphony Orchestra (Dir. James Orent) and the University of Massachusetts - Boston Chamber Orchestra (Dir. Dr. Jon C. Mitchell). I have most recently studied under Dr. Emilian Badea in both Oboe and Accordion, with Bulent Guneralp in Piano and Voice, and with Dr. David Patterson for Music Theory, Ear Training, Arrangement and Composition. Music has been an important part of my life for over 20 years.

For information regarding my approach to instruction of a specific subject, please click on the name of the subject listed above for a full description.

A
s I do not have access to a car, I prefer that students come to my home studio in Somerville, or that they be within public transit options.

N.B. I own a dog, so for those with allergies, it might be best to meet in your own home.

My 5 year old takes classes with her. She is a very shy and anxious child. Ms Paniyeva has been very patient and accommodating. She can read and play in 5 months. I can’t believe her progress. I think we were very lucky to find her. My daughter calls her always Smiling.

I learned a lot in seven months with Liana. I was pleased to have her, but I'm still slow. I think I need six months more in order to gain enough speed. Anyway, Liana is a good instructor to start with. She encourages and leaves you with no fear.

We will learn to read music, play in your favorite style from pop and jazz to classical music, and we will have fun!

About Inna
Hello, and thank you for your interest!

My name is Inna, I'm a jazz and world vocalist, pianist and composer.

I come from family of musicians, and I have started exploring music since the age of 5. In addition to my classical studies in Russia, I won the only full tuition scholarship to study in famous Berklee College of Music in the competition that took place during Berklee Asia Scholarship Tour in 2010.

In Berklee I was deeply influenced and moved by Eastern European and Middle Eastern music, which lead to experimentations in fusing those genres with modal jazz and then later rock.

I studied Vocal Performance, and Contemporary Writing and Production, and I have over a decade of experience in teaching, and performing, so I look forward to working with you to develop your voice, piano, and composing/arranging skills!

Cur
rently I teach from my home studio in Boston, and I'm also available to come to your location.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

As an adult with no prior musical training, I greatly appreciate Inna's ability to communicate in a way that I can understand, using examples and comparisons that make sense. With Inna's guidance and encouragement, I have made progress and, most importantly, I feel more confident after only a few weeks.

Inna is a great teacher but also a very interesting person in general. I was hesitant to start lessons but I am very glad I did. Inna provides a friendly and non-judgmental atmosphere that makes it comfortable for me. So far I have taken 5 lessons and I already feel like a made some progress ! Would definitely recommend her as a singing teacher :)

I am a friendly, welcoming teacher that has worked with students of all ages! I am finishing up my master's in music education in Boston while continuing my role as a performer and teacher. I am proficient on piano, violin, and voice, have an affinity for music theory, and have been teaching in these areas of study for over 6 years now. Whether you want to learn how to play contemporary or classical, I'm happy to pass my knowledge on! Feel free to send me a message to see if we'll make a good team.

About Aubrey
I am a professional singer, pianist, and violinist, and also a public school teacher. I specialize in classical music, and have worked with many choirs and instrumental ensembles over the course of my career. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Music Education (Voice) at the University of Toronto in Toronto, Canada, and completed my piano studies at the Royal Conservatory of Music. I also earned my Master's degree in Music Education at the Boston Conservatory. Currently, I am on staff at MJ's Music School in Waltham.

I began my music studies at the age of 7, and a lot of my current teaching philosophy has been greatly influenced by my own educational experiences as a child. I believe that students are never too young for a technical and accurate approach. At the same time, music lessons don't have to be scary or daunting. I find that many
teachers tend to underestimate their students, so I make a great effort to encourage my students to go further than even they think they can.

My piano, violin, and voice students have been of diverse ages and experience levels. Depending on the goals of the student, we can work out a personalized curriculum that is beneficial and efficient. Students can expect to improve in music literacy, sight-reading, ear training, knowledge of different musical styles, chord building and reading, and holistic musicianship.

Feel free to send me a message! I would love to talk about your musical journey and how I can help you progress.

I'm a young talented pianist from Armenia, who,despite his young age, have already become a winner and finalist in various prestigious international competitions. I started my music education when I was only 6, giving importance to latter from the very beginning. During early years of education, I have participated in numerous concerts and festivals held not only in my homeland Armenia, but also around the world. I started my teaching attempts from a very young age. I always had critical approach toward existing systems of music education. Thus, I implemented my unique model of teaching which included not only perfecting piano performance but also developing creative mind and musicianship among my young fellows.
My competitions' history includes First Prize in Scriabin International Competition in Paris, First Prize in Santorini Inte
rnational Competition in Greece, Third prize in Nodar Gabunia International Competition in Tbilisi, Semi-Finalist in Gina Bachauer International Competition in Salt Lake City, and Semi-Finalist in Astana Piano Passion festival organized by well-known Russian pianist Denis Matsuev. I have also taken many master-classes from notable musicians from all over the world, among them are Boris Berman (Dean of piano department at Yale University), Robert Benz (the chair of the jury at Ettlingen International Competition), Aleksander Korsantia (professor at New England Conservatory), Fabio Bidini (professor at Colburn Music School), Jura Margulis (professor at University of Arkansas), Ian Fountain (professor at Royal Academy of Music in London) etc. I achieved musical mastery under the mentorship of well-known pianist and pedagogue Armen Babakhanyan in Yerevan State Conservatory (2010-2013).

David is an amazing person, pianist and teacher. In 2 months I've had a huuuge progress. Having almost no background in classical piano playing now I'm able to put my finger on those virtuosic Chopin etudes and not only. I'm also more confident with reading sheet music and interpreting it. You'll have very meaningful conversations with him that will change the way you perceive music and art in general ;)

I believe each student has a gift in music, with the right direction and attitude they will find a lifelong enjoyment of music. In order to develop students' musical sense, I spark their interest with my interesting approach. I encourage my students to focus on fundamental techniques step-by-step. At the same time, introduce them all different kinds of ways to practice, so the practice will not be only difficult and boring.

Learning music is not about playing all the right notes, and I wish to guide my students to discover all the possibilities in the music.

About Angela
I am currently in my last year Master of Music in performance (French horn) at Boston University. I just moved to Boston from Toronto, Canada last year, and ready to meet new students who are passionate about music!
My profession is French horn, but I have been classical trained in piano since young age, and still play piano regularly in events such as church service and choir.
I also perform in many orchestras, chamber music and opera/musicals as French horn player, working with many talented musicians give me great stories and experience to share with my students.

Gerson is so knowledgeable & talented & he teaches with so much patience & friendliness. I feel so comfortable learning from him as he really dissects what he teaches & focuses a lot on precision & repetition. Gerson really lets you speak your mind when you express what you’d like to work on & really curates the lesson according to your needs.
