I teach piano both as a starting to other instruments and as a goal in and of itself. My method is to teach as much as I can in the learning style of the student. I have taught from every available piano method book out there. The goal is not to get through each book as quick as we can. The goal is to become a student who enjoys making music. The student and I work as much as we can during the lesson time on the understanding of the songs, method, style, and theory of music. Therefore, if a someone does not have much time for practice during a week, as happens for time to time, they will still learn and progress.

About Shae
I am an music instructor with 27 years of experience. I have a Bachelor's degree in Sacred Music with a major in Voice. I have been playing piano for 35 years with having been an accompanist for choirs and soloists and a pianist at weddings and churches. I am a believer that anyone can learn piano and improve their abilities! I also know that a knowledge of music and music theory go together to improve one's learning ability in any area of his/her life. The student and I would work together. I don't just teach the "how to", I help and encourage taking time at the lesson to learn and understand the music. I am a huge advocate of building the student's skills during the lesson time and using the rest of the week on their own to continue to review the skills they have already acquired. I have a piano recital once a year in the spring
. 2 or 3 months ahead, we decide on a song they like that will show off their acquired skills. I look forward to being your teacher! We will have fun learning!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a friendly person and like to put everyone at ease. I try to adapt to each student's learning style. As I have hinted at in my bio, I teach the skills and then we work together on these skills during the lesson. The idea is for the knowledge and skills to come together before the student tries on their own. The student actually learns quicker this way and we repeat lessons much less. The student also desires to learn when they see those goals being attained at a quicker pace. I usually average one lesson book every 2-3 months, depending on the student.

*** Specialties ***
I have taught every method available for piano. My preference is Faber & Faber. For more advanced students we create our own curriculum.

Merrillville, IN
View Full Profile

My mission, is to create a private and educational environment to students of all ages. One that enriches their senses to music, through reading, writing, ear training, performance and technique.

About Nicholas
Nick comes from a family of four generations of music in the GREEK/Balkan repertoire. He graduated from Columbia College of Chicago with a concentration in Music Composition in December of 2009. Currently teaching and performing professionally, Nick enjoys all styles of music, but has been declared as an "old soul" by many of his friends. He enjoys playing lots of Motown, funk, and jazz, but is proficient in Classical, Rock, and Blues as well. When not playing music (rarely), he is a Board member for the GivingBackPack Foundation which provides school supplies to underprivileged children. Nick's dedication to education is shown through his music and his personal volunteer hours, he feels his diverse background gives his students an advantage to a broader perspective of music and theory.

*** Lesson Details ***
I set an individual c
urriculum based on students needs, wants and aspirations. We will focus on proper technique, theory, musicianship and sightreading to become a better all around musician. After a few months of lessons, you will have the proper fundamentals to grow as a musician and discover the art of music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
All necessities on site.

*** Specialties ***
I am well versed in many styles, I have played professionally and teach, ALL forms of Rock, Jazz, Blues, World (ethnic musics), Pop, Acoustic, Folk, and most other styles.

I hadn't played the trumpet in 30 years. My first lesson with Nicholas was like starting from scratch. He is very knowledgeable, polite, professional, and definitely patient. I feel that that homework Nicholas assigned was spot on. I'm playing better already after only two days. I would certainly recommend him to a friend.

I've been teaching piano privately and in group settings for eight years. I strive to create a fun and exciting environment to fit each student's learning style and goals. In my home studio I have an upright piano as well as an 88 key weighted keyboard.
I enjoy using technology in my lessons and believe it is a great way to keep students excited. In addition to using the Faber Piano Adventures and Bastien methods, I use a few mobile applications on my tablet to assist in the learning of rhythm and note reading.

About Mariana
Born in Panama City, Panama, Mariana completed a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from Shenandoah Conservatory and completed a Master of Music in Vocal Pedagogy at the Catholic University of America with an emphasis in Latin American Music in 2009. She has sung on the stages of Italy and Spain participating in performances of Die Zauberfl te, L'Elisir d'Amore and La Traviata. Mariana has sung in the DC area with Zarzuela Di Si and the In Series as well as The City Choir of Washington and The Washington Chorus.
As a voice teacher, Mariana has experience teaching students of all ages but mostly children and teenagers. Her approach is simple yet effective, speaking in terms that are easy for each individual student to understand and remember.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students will develop a strong vocal technique and build heal
thy vocal habits. They will learn all aspects needed to become a well rounded singer: diction, interpretation, musicianship, breath support and focus, all of this while having fun! Also, they will acquire the tools to keep up the work they've done during their lessons in the time between meetings with the teacher.
Pianists will learn to read music and play by ear while acquiring a healthy technique to avoid any injuries.

*** Studio Equipment ***
You'll be learning to play on a beautiful Kawai upright piano.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I own a traveling keyboard but prefer to use a larger instrument if available at the student's home. I also provide musical scores and the use of metronome.

I love teaching little ones to play the piano! Dynamic lessons often include games, coloring, and listening. Lesson materials will center around the Faber Piano Adventure Series.

About Amanda
Hi! My name is Amanda and I have been teaching private lessons since 2002. I teach both French Horn and Piano lessons in my home studio or at your home. I believe that everybody learns differently so there is no "cookie cutter" lesson plan with me. Your lessons will be tailored to your musical interests and style of learning. Young beginning piano students can expect to learn theory through games and coloring projects for example. I strive for a dynamic studio so that all involved have fun learning.

I am also a registered Wunderkeys instructor. Wunderkeys is a piano method specifically designed for preschoolers aged 3-5 years old. Using pictures, rhymes, singing, games, and more, lessons are so much fun that students don't even realize they're learning! Children don't need to have any musical background or knowledge to learn with the W
underkeys method.

I hold a Bachelors degree in French Horn performance from the University of MN-Duluth with piano being my secondary instrument. I also hold a Master's Degree from Wichita State University. I held the position of Assistant French Horn in the Wichita Symphony and have freelanced and subbed with numerous orchestras and groups in the midwest including the Duluth-Superior Symphony Orchestra.

Students really have fun as they learn to play Piano! Not only does it make their brain smarter, but it will also improve their reading and math comprehension! Many different methods are used, using the one most effective and tailored for your student. Faber and Faber is a favorite. I also teach Suzuki Piano lessons. Students have a 30 minute private lesson once per week. Quarterly all the students get together for a group lesson. this is a fun time of playing music games, performing a special piece for each other, learning how to be an appreciative audience, coloring music notes for music theory and listening examples of the great Classical composers. We have Christmas, fall, and Valentine parties too with the group lessons. Students are able to perform at many Recitals thru the year. They can earn ribbons, medals, and trophies! We always have a Christmas Recital at the Mall of America, and a huge Recital in the Spring!

Piano lessons are fun for all ages! Each lesson will be tailored to fit the need of the student. During lessons students can expect to learn note recognition, rhythm, scales, and a performance piece. Contact me with any questions you may have or sign up and get started!

About Sara
For 15 years, I have been studying both piano and violin extensively. It is this love of music that led me to begin formally teaching four years ago. Since then, I have had the opportunity to teach not only my own private students but also in a studio in Atlanta, GA and Buford, GA. I have had the privilege of teaching students as young as 3 to those as young-at-heart of 70. Whatever age I instruct, my lessons are formulated to fit the individual. Being able to meet my students on whatever level they need has always been a great joy.
Due to my intensive background of orchestral performances, I had the opportunity to instruct students on their orchestral pieces given to them by local orchestras and prepare them for any upcoming auditions.
As a musician, I have enjoyed the opportunities of accompanying local choirs, playing with
local and well-known orchestras, performing at weddings, and providing music at various functions.
Music has always been a passion of mine since I was a young child. My parents and instructors gave me every opportunity to cultivate that love. I am so grateful to have the same chance to do so with anyone who wants to learn. Please contact me with any questions you may have.

"Music Speaks What Cannot Be Expressed, Soothes the Mind and Gives it Rest, Heals the Heart and Makes it Whole, Flows From Heaven to the Soul" ~Unknown~

Want to know what to expect during lessons? Check out the information below.

Parents and Students should expect a fun yet educational atmosphere during their lesson time. During lessons students will learn about their instrument, note recognition, rhythm, and of course how to play a song. I ask that each student have individual practice time during the week as this is the only way to truly advance and learn the instrument. I also encourage parents to be available during the lesson and during the students individual practice session. This helps ensure that students are practicing correctly (and what they are supposed to) during the week.

Melody is as lovely as she is talented. Not only does she understand the harp inside and out, but her playing is like nothing I've ever heard. While she can of course play classic tunes, she is also innovative with the harp, tackling some of today's most popular hits. Most importantly, however, Melody is patient. While the harp is her first passion and she is well beyond her years, she is not only willing, but eager to share her talent with others. It has been a pleasure learning from someone who has in time become a friend. I would recommend Melody to any and everyone with the slightest passion for harp. While it is a joy learning from her, the greatest treat is hearing her play. Thanks for everything Mels!

Piano is one the best instruments to learn when you approach music, because you can see how music actually works physically under your fingers more than any other instrument. Playing piano is not Rocket Science, I can teach you to play easier and faster than you would think. Within the first 2 lessons you will be playing simple chord structures of a song that you choose. My goal is to customize your lessons around your learning styles and musical preferences. I've played piano for over 30 years in the studio and touring all over the US, Mexico, and Central America. I can teach you how to play with seemingly effortless technique, how to create unforgettable piano parts, how to improvise solos, and bring thunderous energy into your playing venues! I look forward to speaking with you soon

About Shon
My Name is Shon M.

I was raised in a family that has a tradition of passing the art of music down from generation to generation. I began playing at age 5 and I play 5 instruments professionally and 15 instruments in all. I studied music at Morehead State University and Musician’s Institute. I've been a touring and studio musician since the age of 16. I have been teaching music for more than 35 years. Many of my alumni have gone on to become professional musicians and teachers themselves. My approach to music education is somewhat unique, although it is gaining popularity in the mainstream of music education. I view music more like a language, as opposed to what some have called more of a data entry approach. Don't get me wrong, reading music is important and I do it everyday, but your music lessons should be teaching you how to play a
n instrument, not spending the majority of your time in learning to read right out of the gate. Yes there basics you must learn, but when you were a child, you didn't learn to read as you spoke your first words. You were learning to speak your language long before your learned your ABC's. There are many musicians with little formal training who play an instrument so well you'd swear you can see smoke coming from their fingers. Let me tell you, they weren't born that way. They learned to speak the language of music. The fact is, it's so much easier to learn to read music, after you have a basic understanding of how to speak the language. So say good bye to the frustrations of banging you head against the wall with the complexities of reading music and wondering how much longer you're going to have to endure this ongoing torture before you learn to play something cool, and say hello to having fun while learning how to play an instrument and the songs and styles you want to play...

You may have studied music before and given up because it was too difficult. Please know that's not uncommon. But I’m here to tell you, there is a better way! So if you've ever wanted to learn to play an instrument or sing, there is no better time than now.

Shon is a gifted multi-instrumentalist. Who has toured with Janet Jackson and Bruce Springsteen and many other artists. That combined with countless hours of studio recordings in L.A. Studios as a bassist, and countless other studios around the country. Shon is the consummate professional. Not only does he bring years of real world experience to everything he does, but he is also personable and great to work with on a project or a live performance. He's studied with Abraham Laborel, John Pattucci, Victor Wooten, and even has a bass given to him by the man who assisted in creating "the pocket" in Toto the late Mike Porcaro. He is a close friend and I am consistently inspired when I get to play music with my brother. You won't be disappointed. An investment worthwhile.
