In a half hour or hour, I will focus on the positive and aspects of your playing that need improvement, with an enthusiasm that will develop your love of the instrument as much as your technical ability. This isn't to say technique will be neglected; all my students will be required to play scales and other exercises, which will probably take about 20% of the lesson time.

About Gabrielle
I'm a violinist and pianist from West Friendship, Maryland with twenty years of experience on each instrument and ten years experience teaching. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education from the University of Louisville. I believe in using positive feedback to develop a student's passion for playing music. Beginner to advanced, I can make you a better musician.

I would have described how 'passionate' Gabbi is about violin but unfortunately never had that opportunity. I had scheduled the class 10 days in advance and on the day of the class Gabbi decided to shoot an email couple hours before saying she can't make it.
A dollar is minute is a very decent compensation which I don't make as an engineer with 7 years of college education. But unfortunately that didn't inspire enough professionalism in Gabbi. Maybe she reserves her professionalism for few people and not for everyone.

Gabby is a great violin teacher. She customizes her lessons to your needs, and she encourages and gives great pointers throughout the lesson. My daughter leaves her lessons with so much more knowledge and hints - than when she came with to the lesson. I have seen her improve greatly in her playing in just a few lessons.

As a retiree who has recently returned to piano after a decades-long hiatus, I knew I’d need a teacher with experience teaching adults. Semyon is proving to be excellent. He is a skilled musician and teacher whose approach combines enjoyable piano pieces, exercises for agility and the fundamentals of scales and theory. He is patient and responsive to what I want to accomplish. I have learned in each lesson, seen improvement each week, and enjoy the diversity of assignments. In short, i’m having a grand time and highly recommend him.

I have been playing piano since the age of six. Originally classically trained, I made a change to learning Jazz after hearing it on the radio one night while still in high school.

I began my teaching career in 2007, providing private piano instruction to beginners at a small, privately owned music school in Laurel, Maryland.

After the school closed it's doors in the Fall of 2011, I continued working with many of the students privately. It is these efforts I continue to this day.

Having the opportunity to work 1 on 1 with students and see their progression and development on a week to week basis is a truly, rewarding experience that I feel fortunate to be a part of.

*** Lesson Details ***
Although the approach you take with each student will be different, basic standard requirements will consist of:

1) Being able to loc
ate notes on the piano in relation to middle C

2) Being able to recognize notes on the staffs and play them in the correct locations on the piano

3) Scale theory- understanding how scales are constructed and being able to play at least 2 octaves of all 12 major scales with both hands at the same time

4) Chord theory- understanding how triads and eventually seventh chords are constructed

5) Sight reading- there is a "trick" to this, if you will, a way to go about approaching tunes that I've found makes them easier to digest

6) And for those interested, we can give the lessons a more Jazz-oriented approach (lessons would then more heavily emphasize scale and chord theory, syncopation, and learning Jazz standards)

Remember, we are all students. Instrument teachers, instructors, coaches (whatever you want to call them) do not represent an end to the learning process, but rather a continuation of it. We're all trying to improve, develop our craft, build up our chops, practice new and uncomfortable things, and expand upon our abilities of what we can do. I have heard from Jazz pianists in their 80s say that they are still learning, still trying to get better. I think that's an important thing to keep in mind as you begin this journey. The journey never ends, it just extends and continues. You'll never run out of new things to learn. The only thing you can strive for is to be the most competent you can be at your instrument. Your playing ability at any point along this journey is only a mere reflection of who you are at this moment in time. So make this moment the most meaningful it can be. The journey begins here.

Want to learn piano but don't know where to start? Interested in giving those piano lessons from when you were a kid another shot? I'm your gal! With 12+ years of piano training under my belt, I can provide you with a fun and simple crash-course that allows you to adopt a jack-of-all-trades mentality, which ranges from following what's on the page to "faking it."

About Allison
Thanks for stopping by! My name is Allison, and I'm a student with a passion for music!

I am a classically trained vocalist, pianist, and composer who has been studying music for 16 years. My abilities in ear-training and sight-reading have given me the perfect springboard to experiment with different musical techniques, and I have spent my time as a music student developing my own jack-of-all-trades style.

Piano students can expect to learn beginner tools such as basic sight-reading techniques and proper finger coordination to finding exciting ways to "fake" your way through a piece. I aim to give students an adaptable tool box that allows them to feel confident in multiple facets of piano-playing.

Vocal students can expect to approach their singing with a musician's ear, and gain the confidence to nail their next big audition
or voice recital. I aim to provide a leg up in sight-reading and ear training to give the student an advantage over their peers.

What I enjoy most about teaching piano is:

The opportunity to transform the piano into much more than a box with buttons that sits collecting dust day after day in millions of homes around the world, but rather an instrument capable of communicating every type of human emotion in limitless ways, that is, if our physical bodies are up to the task.

Let me explain=

As a musician who takes excellent care of his health and wellness through a wide-range of physical activities and sound (no pun intended) nutrition, I am a firm believer that playing the piano (or any instrument) requires tremendous physical control, dexterity, and poise.

This notion is consistently proven true again and again when I give lessons to children and adults who are engaged in sports and other athletic/physical training outside of studying music. Because they are in good shape, they can demand much more from their bodies, which instantly heightens their overall musicianship and individual artistic ...

About John
What I enjoy most about teaching piano:

The opportunity to transform the piano into more than a box with black and white buttons, but rather, a device capable of communicating every human emotion in limitless ways, that is, if our physical bodies are up to the task.

Let me explain:

As a musician who takes great care of his health through a wide-range of physical activities and sound (pun intended) nutrition, I'm a firm believer that playing the piano requires tremendous physical control, dexterity, and poise.

This notion is constantly proven true again and again when I give lessons to children and adults who are engaged in sports or any other physical training outside of studying music. Because they are in good shape, they can demand much more from their bodies. This instantly heightens their overall musicianship and individua
l artistic expression.

My approach to piano lessons simply put is: How do we form as close a physical bond as possible between the instrument and student? In terms of piano, I acheive this goal by training the student's hands to move; in the best way; in the right way; in the most healthiest way; in an athletic way.

Now, you *do not* have to be an athlete to see results. My point is= I take an athletic position in terms of teaching piano.

I fully understand music theory, chords, scales and rhythm. So does every other teacher.

What other teachers *do not know* is: How to teach students of any age how best to move at the piano.

This specifically is what seperates me from 99 percent of piano teachers.

Overall point= If we did not have a body with which to move, we would not be able to make any music at all. So on a fundamental level, your body is the first thing that needs to be trained when learning a new instrument.

Would you like to play your favorite piano pieces? Would you like to read music? If so then I’m the one. Lessons with me will build you a solid foundation on music theory, ear training, sight reading, technique and much more. Let’s get started!

About Trentin
Hello, my name is Trentin Alford and I’m a vocalist and pianist. Now I’m sure you all are wondering why should you pick me as a teacher so let me tell you about my music background. I’ve been singing since I was 6 but started getting trained when I started my freshman year at Baltimore School for the Arts. When you go to that school you become classically trained. From going to that school I’ve learned how to read music and sing correctly. But once I got there I had to take mandatory piano classes so I could learn how to pluck out the notes in my vocal piece to learn it and to do vocal warm ups in every key. After like 2 years went by I started having a strong interest in piano music which made me want to be able to do more than pluck notes, only be able to play basic pieces and do warmups so I started having private piano lessons closer
to the end of my 10th grade year and now I’m out of school. I graduated in June. Over the few years of having lessons on piano I’ve improved a whole lot and now playing pieces that I once thought I never could. I am currently working on two pieces and they are “Brahms rhapsody in G minor” and “Chopin nocturne op.27 no.2”. So with that being said, if allowed, I would like the chance to teach you all I know and make you capable to play beautiful piano pieces and overall become a great musician.
