Patrick L.

Arden, NC

Piano Lessons
I differentiate between concepts and skills, while stressing the importance of mastering both. As important as it is to understand the intervolic relationships in something like the major scale, this knowledge does little for the pianist if she or he cannot pick out the notes to the different scales in real time. In observing that each person demonstrates unique learning patterns and abilities, I have learned that some people will come to understand the conceptual through mastery of memorized tasks while some will succeed with technical mastery only after achieving some conceptual understanding.

About Patrick

Hi there, my name is Patrick, and I am now a new resident of the Asheville area. I am a music teacher of Trumpet, Piano, Voice and Sound Recording with more than 20 plus years of experience. Below, I relate some of my experiences and philosophies as a teacher of music since 2002.

*** Lesson Details ***
Trumpet Lessons
I have worked with adults and children, with beginners, and with more experienced players looking for a push or a new direction. I have developed many different teaching methods based on what each of my students wants to get out of lessons. The heart of most lessons I teac
h is learning to play or understand songs. Usually, I rely on my students to select the songs they wish to study, which I then transcribe to make personal arrangements fitted to their abilities. Of course, I will suggest or recommend songs at times. I also supply relevant exercises and music theory to accelerate the learning process.

Voice Lessons
Having first begun singing at 22 years old, I know first hand that it’s never to late to start singing. Having some experience in school but not fully as a professional till in my 20′s, I have learned from some of the top professionals in the South Florida area. My first vocal lessons was with Gloria Estefan’s back up singer Jon Secada. Jon has his first hit “Just Another Day” that stayed at #1 for several weeks. His one lesson really helped me use singing in my gigging around town. From that time on, I have used this technique for all my students. focusing on JUST BREATHING, has helped many of my students.

Teaching Sound Recording
Working in the early 1980s with recorded music and computers, I was introduced to the new wave of recording at its birth. At Miami Dade Community College, I taught and assisted students in Composition, Sound Development, and Sound Recording using Mac computers and PC’s. As of this day, I personally teach recording in Logic Pro, Bias Peak and Mastering using Waves plug ins and having finished products in Mp4 format and or CD’s.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Mac with logic pro software instruments, piano seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
expect students to provide paper and pencil and put in practice time on their respected instruments at least 30 min a week

*** Specialties ***
Alfred,Hanon,Rubank Advanced Method for instruments.

Hello music world this is Tino b here! I want to let everyone out there who is interested in taking their music to the next level and is searching for someone to help them do so, well look no further Patrick Lopez can help you do so. My first
lesson with him gave me my confidence back and has me producing music on a totally different/higher level.
Better writing and music composition is what im learning,
how to listen to today's music melodies and transform them into a sound of my own. Check him out!

Gavin G.

Gastonia, NC

I've taken piano lessons for 4 years now and i've grown up around the piano my entire life due to my brother being a piano virtuoso. I'm very good at the theory parts of piano and can also teach technique and how to read music. I bet you would learn several tunes from me too :)

About Gavin

Several years ago I found that my passion was sharing my musical talents with people. While I am young, I love music and and I love teaching. I've always felt that teaching is just as important as performing. My style of teaching is a little different, my goal is to give people musical tools so one day they won't need me. I remember as a young boy my very first teacher made sure that I could be an independent musician that loves being creative and exploring different ideas and sounds. I want to pay that forward now. If you're curious about how beneficial becoming a musician is, I can surely sa
y it builds character, passion, motivation, drive, deep-thinking skills, and determination. It has been proven that playing a musical instrument can help children in school and adults within their workplaces.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Music degree from Brevard College which is a highly esteemed liberal arts university. I am also a hired session musician for Noalynn Studio in Bessemer City NC. I have 15 years of experience, 14 of those years I have been taught by some very renown musicians such as: Dr. Laura Franklin (Studied directly under "Vic Firth"), Henry Davis (studied under Charlotte symphony principal chair "Rick Dior", as well as several others for extended periods of time. I was a guest artist in the Spartanburg Symphony and I am also endorsed by 1710 Percussion, Dream Cymbals, and Rich Sticks. Finally, I have 6 years of teaching experience where I have worked with people with special needs as well as physically disabled people. I am proficient in piano and have taken piano lessons for 4 years. I am able to teach the basics of piano and I'm very proficient in music theory for any instrument needed.

I've never learned anything from Gavin. However, I have seen him play several times in a few different bands. He is very versatile, and has always been very knowledgable and happy to answer any questions I've had about percussion. I guess in that right, I have learned a lot from him. He's a great dude, and is always happy to work with and help people.

What a wonderful experience I've had with Gavin. I've learned more from him than he will ever know. He is a very determined musician with the skills it takes to be successful in most any venture he attempts. He is very patient with children and has a passion to see those around him learn. He is also very humble about his accomplishments; however, takes a lot of pride in his ability to perform, lead and teach music. His passion for life and the art of music is undeniable and has blessed many along his path.

Leon Y.

Charlotte, NC

I've played piano for over 17 years and have taught since 2006. I've passed all 8 levels of ABRSM with distinction and have won multiple SYMF awards in numerous years in.

My beginner students usually start with basics (i.e. scales & bastien) and a few difficult songs they'd like to tackle over the long term.
My intermediate students continue with (i.e. Hanon & Czerny) with a more classical focus
My advance students dive more into theory & composition with jam sessions.

Let's have fun!

About Leon

Hi there,

My name is Leon and I've been teaching various subject for many years now. Over the years of teaching and through students that I've had, I realized that each student is different so I cater a customized learning plan to each student based on mutual preference and learning needs.

For all the subjects I teach, I have the credentials (certificates, standardized testing results) to prove that I understand the material. But that's not the whole story! Any teacher will tell you just because you KNOW the material, doesn't mean you can TEACH that material. That's where my teaching exp
erience along with my background in Learning Psychology comes into play.

Learning whether to reach a goal or enrich our passions is a lifelong journey. I look forward to walking together and discovering new heights :)
