Learn Video Game, Anime or Classical Piano!

It is my goal to develop in each of my students a comprehensive understanding of music which enables them to play the piano with utmost enjoyment and musicality. Quality piano instruction is achieved through focused private lessons. Although with many students I emphasize classical repertoire, it really doesn't work with every student. Each student's curriculum is ALWAYS tailored to their interests and goals. I find encouragement is absolutely necessary but students must try their best. My teaching style consists of a fun, relaxed environment where students can feel like they can express themselves fully and learn much at the same time. Mastery at the piano is so much more than learning to press the right keys at the right time. Music is about expressing and sharing human emotions and feelings that are unspoken and is something we can all be touched by.

About Sabrina
I've been banging on the piano since I was 3, but piano became more structured when I turned 7 and I've loved it so much since then. I've been classically trained and have 15 years piano playing experience. My favorite genre is Modern Japanese Classical music (fancy name for anime and video game music). (:
I have been teaching students for six years. People aren't intimidated when I am around and I believe students benefit greatly when they are comfortable with the teacher and can feel natural around them. The teaching process is most successful when the students share their ideas, disagreements, goals; when they are challenged and test their abilities.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am very laid back and love to laugh, but I do expect the students to be prepared and practice, this way they benefit the most from each teaching session
. I believe students should be involved in their curriculum, so I encourage all to bring in pieces THEY WANT to play because this will make the learning process overall more fun and enjoyable.
My trust is, if you practice regularly you can accomplish much in a short period of time. Whatever you put into piano, is what you will get out, whether great or small.

*** Specialties ***
Modern Japanese Classical. I like the Blues and Boogie genre also!! I also am very familiar with classical pieces from Scott Joplin, Rachmaninoff, Strauss, Bach, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky and Chopin to name a few - which help make a well rounded musician.

Charlotte, NC
View Full Profile

I have been teaching introductory/beginning piano for 3 years now. Beginning students have the option to focus on music theory, pop "keys" (chords to sing over), or basic piano skills. I have taught beginners aged 4-adult.

About Sara
Hello, and welcome to my page! My philosophy for singing is that a truly great singer is versatile, and that the ideal voice is a flexible instrument that can handle a variety of genres and styles.

My personal training is primarily in classical, and I have a Master's degree in classical voice/opera from Boston Conservatory at Berklee. However, I also actively sing pop, musical theater, and even heavy metal!

Singing can be challenging, and while I work with the student intensely to diagnose and fix vocal issues, it is very important to me that the student feels happy and confident. I encourage students to express their creativity by singing in styles that they feel comfortable with, choosing their own songs, and even adding their own riffs/runs/ornamentations.

I like to place a heavy focus on music theory and sight-singing (I
offer private lessons in these subjects separately as well); It is extremely important for young singers to be able to read the notes on the staff, to understand rhythm and key, and to find pitches on the piano.

I accept beginning-intermediate singers of all ages. I additionally offer music theory, sight-singing, and diction lessons as well as beginner/introductory piano.

Specifically: KEYBOARDS. Forget boring lessons! I can show you my Method to make playing & creating FUN and efficient regardless your skill level! Whether you want to learn the real thing or just bought the latest synthesizer, there are certain techniques and approaches I have found in the past 30+ years to work like DYNAMITE -- IF... someone shows you a new way of playing. I have not only taught myself by ear but have over the years successfully taught many students my Method of getting good on a keyboard. I do not approach lessons in the "traditional" sense beyond proper posture and common sense ways to avoid injury. I get to the core of learning to play the instrument in a way that is EASY, FUN, and incredibly TO-THE-POINT! If your goal is NOT to be a classically trained pianist, but rather: you want to learn to EXPRESS yourself on ANY keyboard you have available to you in a way that is stress-free, inspiring, and efficient... you've found your new Maestro!

I really appreciate Mark's teaching ability. He breathes music and make it easy to understand. I wasn't expecting to make that much progress or to have that depth of knowledge of music or my instrument in only 5 lessons. He gives a lot and he is eager to respond to my questions.

As a music education graduate from James Madison University, I have worked with students from Kindergarten to lifelong learning groups in both classroom and one-on-one settings. I have especially enjoyed working with young students who are just being introduced to music.

I have taught beginner piano at several locations including Mike's Music in Ellicott City, Maryland and Nova Music Center in Manassas, Virginia and look forward to introducing your beginning student to the piano.

About Leslie
My name is Leslie, and I recently graduated from James Madison University with a degree in music education. I've been involved with teaching in various capacities from about age 8 until now, but have been teaching voice and piano lessons anywhere from Pre-K to lifelong learning groups for the past several years now.

I grew up learning classical methods for voice and have been able to translate those healthy techniques to other styles of music. I have most recently performed in operas through JMU and other professional groups, have been involved in their musicals as well as in semi-professional productions, and have enjoyed my time singing in jazz combos. Participating in both performance and education has always been important in my life, and I hope to continue this trend. Not only do I find both settings incredibly enjoyable, but I a
m a firm believer that teachers should be able to practice what they preach as far as skill acquisition and work ethic!

While voice is my primary instrument, I also offer piano for beginning and intermediate students as well as ear training lessons. While we have fun in our lessons and with music, a certain amount of discipline and practice time is necessary for improvement. You'll find that I'm very organized in my approach for all subjects, as I take the time that you are paying for seriously. I work hard to offer comprehensive lessons that will help you with whatever genre you're learning or skills you're working to hone.

If you have any questions at all- about lessons, your teacher search, or scheduling, feel free to send me a note, and I'll be happy to get back to you as quickly as possible!

I have been teaching piano for about 6 years, and over that time had 15 students. They were all completely new to the piano (and music in general) but throughout the lessons learned to play music in church, and just for fun at home! I love being able to take a completely new student who is willing to learn, and watch him/her learn to play and even enjoy (yes, enjoy ;) playing the piano.

"Study music while experiencing lessons to an enjoyable and relaxed approach!" This has been my goal and approach for students from young children to professional musicians in college. Whether piano, voice, or organ let's see how you learn best and make this a positive experience for you!

About Joseph
PIANO / VOCAL / ORGAN INSTRUCTOR - I am a music educator and performer that loves working with individuals from the young child to professionals. I taught public school for 12 years and then at The College of Saint Rose in Albany, NY for the last 14. My degrees are from Western Michigan University (Bachelor of Music), Indiana University (Masters in Secondary Education) and Ball State University (Doctorate of Arts). During my teaching career, I also gave private lessons outside of the school and the college. When I left NY, I had 35 students of which 6 remain with me online. Having now relocated to Oahu, Hawaii I am looking to add private students. I love teaching and believe in creating an atmosphere where the students, regardless of age, feel successful in their endeavors.

WHAT DO I DO?
Currently, I am the Coordinator for Therapeuti
c Music & Volunteer Coordinator at Hospice Hawaii and the Director of Music at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Honolulu.

WHAT DO I TEACH?
I teach piano, organ, and voice.
*Piano: All levels from beginning to professional
*Organ: All levels from beginning to professional
*Voice: Beginning and those working with music theater

WHERE DO I TEACH?
*Piano: In Mililani, St Peter’s Episcopal, and online
*Organ: St. Peter’s Episcopal and possibly online
*Voice: St. Peter’s Episcopal
NOTE: Parents are welcomed to attend the lessons!
In fact, I encourage that!!

WHAT IS MY STYLE OF TEACHING?
Every student is different and what works for one may not work with another. It's important for me to know my students so I can better shape the lesson. I love questions, reflection, and even humor. I'm also very patient and understanding. We are all very busy and accept that students may have weeks they can't practice a huge amount of time. As long as some progress is made at lessons, all is well!

AER THERE RECITALS? ... Absolutely. You work hard at your lessons and it’s great to show your talent! Recitals will be at St. Peter’s Episcopal. I’m going to have a recital for my online students soon to see how that goes.

I have taught students ranging from 4-80 years old. I play and teach guitar, banjo, mandolin, voice, bass guitar, piano, and my experience as both a published and recording artist serves as a valuable reference when teaching students how to express and write their own music.

I've been working with Dennis for about 5 years, and who knows, I may be learning from him 5 years from now. It's great learning from him. Not only does he know his stuff and makes his teaching personal to your needs, but he also has a way to make you feel successful even when you are struggling. I always feel better about my playing when I leave than when I got to his studio. He recognizes my learning style and what I want to accomplish, then builds his teaching around that. Dennis a masterful teacher. He has the ability to listen and understand where I am in my learning curve and adjust his lessons to my skill level. When I wanted theory, he went there. When I wanted to learn blues riffs he patiently showed me a few scales. I always leave a session having learned something new.

If you are looking for a guitar teacher (and yes, he also teaches keyboards and other instruments) I'd say put your time and money into Dennis and you, like I, will feel it is one of your best investments

My goal is to make piano learning a fun interactive experience for you. I want you not just to learn piano by book, but to be able to "speak" music as it is your language. That's why the emphasis in my lessons will be on ear training, improvisation, learning chords, and learning various piano techniques. At the same time, I will acquaint you with music theory, as well as teach you how to sight read music scores and lead sheets. In no time you will acquire the necessary knowledge and skills that will make you confident in playing piano. You will be able to play pieces not only by famous classical composers, but also pieces that are popular in today's culture. You will also acquire improvisation skills that will make you confident in creating your own music.

Piano has been a huge part of my life since I was six. I attended a music scho
ol in Ukraine where I was trained to become a professional performer with classical repertoire being my main specialty. I have performed for many concerts as well as been part of many competitions which made me confident in my skills.

I have accompanied for various events such as school graduations, school musicals, school choir, competitions, auditions, church events, Sunday services, and holiday events.

I have over 8 years experience in teaching piano to beginner and intermediate levels. I believe that it is a teacher's duty to instill the passion in students by finding a unique and creative way to get them engaged. I combine different methods when teaching music because that each student's learning experience and interest level is different. I usually want to get to know the person and try to establish connection and then I proceed to finding out what method will work best for them.
