Sandra H.

Henrico, VA

About Sandra

I studied under Mr. Willis Ley at Ley Studio for eighteen years. She was an accompanist for the Heritage School of Dance for twelve years and also played for the School for the Richmond Ballet for One Year. Sandra was trained in contemporary, patriotic and classical music as well as music theory. She has taught children and adults piano both in their homes as well as in her home. She is an accomplished pianist who will give the student a rewarding and fulfilling experience in mastering the keyboard to their fullest potential and play any song for there own enjoyment and for the enjoyment
of others.

*** Lesson Details ***
As a teacher, I would work with the student on learning there favorite song. This would be a goal to set for the student for the first three months. They would be taught to do the scale with their right hand. They would learn there sharps and flats and the difference between the two key signatures. They would also learn during the first six months some of the basic terms in music theory. I would set goals, but never overwhelm the student, but work with them according to how much they could take in. They would have weekly assignments. If an assignment is not mastered during that time, then we would review it and carry it to the next week. When one assignment is mastered, then the student would work on the next. This would be a step by step processed. My goal for the student the first six months is to get that child or adult to be able to play their chords in their left hand, octaves and fillings in their right hand and know how to work the pedals. They would understand and know the key signatures and what timing they are playing in. The student would also know some of the basic music terms. Please keep in mind that this depends on how much information that the student can process. With some it could take a little bit longer. With others it would take less time.

*** Studio Equipment ***
f/w keyboard ("It's heavy, it was metal inside it!") w/ seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect payment on any music material that I purchase at the Music Store.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Rock, Classical, Patriotic, Standard and Spiritual and also children's music for beginners. I do a wide range of music from the fifties up to today.

Sandra is an incredible instructor. I have a background in music having been an active member of my school choir since 2nd grade. As an adult I had an interest in returning to music, but this time to learn an instrument. Sandra's lessons were comprehensive, engaging, and extremely helpful. She is an incredible teacher who is both kind and patient, while possessing a keen ear for music. Her skill as both instructor and pianist are undeniable. I strongly recommend Sandra to any student, regardless of age or skill level! She is truly a passionate and engaged instructor who takes deep personal interest in her students.

Sandra has been a wonderful piano teacher for my daughter Ayn. Ayn started taking lessons from Sandra in April this year. Within the short period of time, she has made a lot of progress. Sandra is also a very caring person.

I highly recommend Sandra if you are looking for someone to teach piano.

Thanks,
Ping

Katie is an excellent violin teacher. I am an adult with a background in music, but a complete beginner on the violin. Katie has done a great job at tailoring lessons towards my personal goals and skill level and I am amazed at the difference in my playing after just a few lessons. I highly recommend Katie as a violin instructor to anyone who is interested in learning to play.

Super nice and easy to be comfortable around. Knows how to explain vocal concepts in an understandable way to anyone at any level, and gives the necessary kind of encouragement that every good singing teacher gives to positively effect a student to practice with healthy confidence and hope! She's great, has a beautiful voice and has obviously great control and understanding of it.

Erika's lessons feature her classical experience and observant, constructive feedback. She notices little mistakes I have and, through fun analogies or stories, explains how to fix them. Lessons have been some of the best I've ever had, and I've taken lessons with multiple instructors for violin, plus others for guitar & voice. My only complaint is the lack of time spent teaching how the student could practice, on their own, for the next lesson or in general.

Having a few guitar licks up your sleeve is super helpful when you're improvising. Guitar teacher Samuel B. shares a few of his favorite jazz guitar licks... Before we begin playing these jazz guitar licks, it's a good idea to get familiar with the pentatonic scale. The pentatonic scale is a more versatile and useful scale than you might think.
