About Angela C.

Close

Piano lessons are fast-paced and fun! I use the Faber Piano Adventures curriculum, so the student will need to purchase appropriate resources. Lessons cover piano knowledge, building technique skills, music theory, improvisation, and performance pieces.

About Angela
I offer private music lessons in voice, piano, and guitar. Primarily specializing in musical theater, jazz, pop, and contemporary worship styles, students enjoy having their own voice in song selection. Lessons offer a variety of technique exercises, music theory, performance practice, and repertoire expansion. I also have songwriting experience and can help students develop their own writing and improvisational skills.

I can bring an acoustic guitar to lessons as well as applicable teaching materials. I will need students that are taking piano lessons to have access to their own piano or keyboard. (Also applies if voice students would like piano accompaniment.)

*** Specialties ***
Vocal Styles: Jazz, Musical Theater, Pop, Classical, Folk

Angela is extremely knowledgeable in all things voice and instrument. She is very talented in both singing and teaching. I took voice lessons from her & I can say I learned so much about technique, breathing, & how to care for my vocals. Angela taught me to embrace my range & love my voice. She is a great teacher I would recommend her to anyone that wants to learn more in this area.

Angela helped me to expand my range, and also taught me "how to breathe," which helped me get the support I needed to make clear sounding notes. I sang alto in chorus for years and she taught me how to successfully hit high notes and have them sound good too. She also worked with me at the tail-end of High School, when my anxiety ran rampant. But somehow she managed to make me a more confident singer and person overall. Thank you Angela! :)

Winston Salem, NC
View Full Profile

I have been teaching piano for almost 20 years. I have taught classical, blues, jazz, country and gospel styles. I am well versed in traditional methods of piano study, but I also have a great deal of success in helping classically trained students learn how to play rock, blues and jazz styles.

About Willy
Willy has been teaching music for more than a decade, carrying on the tradition he learned when his father taught him piano as a youth. He is a multi-instrumentalist with a degree in music from Earlham College in historic Richmond, IN (the birthplace of recorded jazz, and home of 30s era Genette Records).

As a sound technician Willy gained valuable experience working at the world famous Tarry Town Music Hall near Sleepy Hollow, NY, where he worked with top notch touring bands like Blues Traveler, the Indigo Girls, Paul Shaffer, the Marshall Tucker Band, and the late, great Levon Helm. He also worked with A-list actors such as Stanley Tucci, James Cahn, Kevin Bacon and Keanu Reeves.

While living in Austin, TX, Willy was a member of the American Federation of Musicians alongside greats like Los Lonely Boys, George Straight, Lyle Lovet
t and Willie Nelson.

As a father of four young children, Willy teaches in a family friendly environment. At the SIW events, he has taught elementary students as well as adults all the way up to 86 years old! Willy is a background checked teacher and would love to pass on his knowledge of music to you and your family!

Learning Piano by Learning to Read Music

Emphasis on Posture, Hand and Finger Control at the Keyboard, Controlled Relaxation

Classical and Popular Styles

About Robert
Both my mom and dad were musicians and taught private lessons at home, so I grew up wanting to be a part of the music making. Now I am a university music educator who performs frequently as a soloist and collaborative pianist. I hold piano performance degrees from Carnegie Mellon and Yale. In addition, I've studied chamber music at the American Conservatory in Fontainebleau (France) and vocal accompanying at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria. I perform as a church musician, choral accompanist, and recital pianist in traditional and more modern styles. I'm active as a collaborative artist in competitions, auditions, and recordings. In the past three years I've been studying ballroom dancing for fun and as an extension of my interest in experiencing music from the standpoint of total body movement. It's been a game-changer for sure!

*** Lesson Details ***
I favor an easygoing approach to lessons as a joint venture (and Adventure) between the student and me. I enjoy encouraging students and responding to their individual needs and levels of accomplishment. I have taught beginners of every age as well as more experienced pianists. For beginners I aim to establish a comfortable relationship with the instrument so that they can feel at ease in playing in high and low registers and everywhere in between. For more advanced players the goal is to connect good technique with their own innate musical skill. Students at all levels will work on their music-reading and sight-reading skills. If your dream is to learn to play piano, I can help you to get started. If you already play, I can help you to prepare for auditions and recitals and, in short, to reach the next level. Let's roll!

*** Studio Equipment ***
six foot grand in living room seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
For many years I taught young children from the Frances Clark "Music Tree" series. With more intermediate and advanced students I used the Alfred Series as well as volumes by James and Jane Bastien. I also enjoy teaching and coaching students in the art of accompanying, particularly in choral music and vocal art songs. This is a specialty of mine, as I have made my living as a collaborative pianist. In recent years I have studied more popular genres that include piano arrangements of Gershwin, Porter, Kern, Rodgers, and many other American composers. While I shy away from teaching these to young students (even of high school or college age), I do occasionally teach contemporary arrangements of hymn tunes (Mark Hayes, Larry Shackley, and others) to students who show promise in handling modern genres, which of course require no small amount of technique and discipline.

There is not enough that I can say about Mr. Blackwell's teaching. Under his instructions, I have learned not only to play the bass by ear, but also I am able to read and understand music theory. Mr. Blackwell constantly challenges you to go further with every lesson. The best part of the class is the jam sessions! I love playing songs being the lead at times and a support to the band. I can't wait to play with our lead guitarist Michael. If you are looking for a music instructor, I highly recommend that you check out Mr. Blackwell!

My degree is in Music Education from Bob Jones University. I've been teaching private piano lessons for over 15 years.

Before this I home educated both of my two children until they were 14. Both went to college at age 14 and were honor students.

With these years of experience, I'm incredibly skilled at teaching children to be the best they can possibly be no matter their level of talent or ability.

I teach children from around age 4 until 100!

About Lisa
For my beginner adult students I can have you playing your favorite song (with both hands) in just a matter of weeks. Yes, I'm a very patient teacher. This seems to be a concern for adult students! :) I love that you're wanting to learn to play!

As for my beginner little kids I use the FJH company curriculum so that they will become well rounded pianist.

Also, I'm able to teach anyone that has a natural ear for playing.

I homeducreated my kids for 16 years so from that experience I'm able to bring a very customized learning atmosphere to each student and their natural learning abilities.

Online lessons are available but I do not travel to homes unless you are elderly and cannot drive.

Please, contact me for specific scheduling.

Winston Salem, NC

I begin lessons by getting straight to the point, how to connect to the instrument through the sense of touch and produce a beautiful, resonant sound. I am able to teach proper finger technique which unlocks a sense of freedom in playing. We will focus on how to use these elements to express the content or meaning in the music.

About Joshua
I am a UNC School of the Arts graduate with over 10 years of teaching experience, and additional studies in music composition at The Royal Conservatoire of The Hague, Netherlands. I am currently also on the teaching faculty at the Community Music School of UNC School of the Arts.
A major focus of my lessons is to help the student understand how to think musically and to express convincingly the meaning of the music, no matter how simple or complex, through proper technique. I always lead the student towards a sense of being able to 'speak' the music through the sense of touch.
I also integrate the study of music theory into lessons as needed.
