I have been a pianist for over 40 years. I play and teach classical, popular, and gospel music. I have been teaching piano for over twenty years. Students I have taught have gone on to become teachers themselves. With my method of teaching, the student will be able to play after the first lesson.

I also teach organ and voice, along with theory

About Udell
I have love and a great passion for music. I have been a musician for over 30 years, I have been a private instructor in piano, organ and voice for 10 years. I have trained and arranged music for several choirs and musicians. I have been music administrator for the church I attend for 12 years. I have instructed children's music classes at The Cleveland Clinic Children's Rehabilitation Hospital. I have toured with choirs, soloist, and musicians in the United States and Canada.

Studio is at a church with separate music rooms for training. Each room has a piano and organ inside and seating is available.

Your piano lessons will be fun, with a good, solid classical background in technique, instilled with music theory, including learning key signatures and scales. I can teach some special need people. Please ask for more information regarding your special needs.

About R. ROBIN
*** Specialties ***
Hi, I'm Robin and have been teaching voice, piano and music theory/composition for many years. I have had a professional career in singing, songwriting and performing, beginning at a very early age. I welcome new students and love bringing out the best in every individual. I also specialize in vocal audition preparation, bringing the student to a higher level of performance, ready to impress and make a great presentation when auditioning. I've had several students audition for The Voice and America's Got Talent, as well as numerous local productions. Below I'll go over a few things I consider very important with a few of the subjects I teach.

For voice lessons, I specialize in teaching what the student has a desire to learn, together with great technique that will last a lifetime. I emphasize breath and diaphragm c
ontrol, flexibility and range extension.

For piano lessons, I combine great technique with a lot of music theory. For piano lessons, I do require the student having 24-hour access to a piano or keyboard. It's nice to have an 88-key, weighted key digital piano or keyboard. If you don't have an 88-key instrument, you want to strive for that. I prefer the student own a 'real' piano, if possible.

When it comes to composition/music theory, I love making it easy to learn, so it is never overwhelming. Learning theory properly can open up a whole world of songwriting. Having a heavy background in composition, I love the creativity that can happen utilizing the tools of music theory.

I can teach students with some special needs. Please use the tool "Ask A Question" to correspond with me more about this. Thanks. Also, I do have 45-minute slots available, it may just not be reflected in my schedule, as the calendar doesn't allow me to show 15-minute time increments. I also have a rare time slot! An every other week time slot on Monday from 1:45 to 2:15. This is a rare occurrence, so if you are interested, I'd grab it ASAP. If any questions about my schedule, please just shoot me a question, I'll we'll talk about it!

My home studio is a fun, relaxed atmosphere and even though I focus heavily on technique, we're always going to have FUN learning and enjoy what we're accomplishing! Please keep in mind that when you schedule with me, I can only hold a time slot for one week for you. Also, if you are under 18 years old, you MUST have an adult sign up and pay for lessons for you. Thanks and I so look forward to meeting you!

Robin is a wonderful instructor! From the first singing lesson, she was very welcoming and helps you feel at ease. She has taught me a lot and I continue to learn and progress through her thorough, down to earth instruction. Each lesson with her continues to be a positive, fun, and, encouraging experience.

You can play what you can hear. I work on developing the student's mental concept of how a particular piece of music might sound. This solid musical thinking translates into a reliable technique. Technique should come naturally and should not be overly thought, but I will explain what seems to work for me and analyze the student's playing.

Beginning students start with a method such as the well-known 'Piano Adventures'. Lessons should include some study of theory. More advanced students will work on progressively more demanding literature.

My adult students say I am insightful.

About Graham
I am a Piano Performance major at The University of Akron. I currently study with Philip Thomson, and my past teachers include Laura Silverman, Douglas Hicks, and the late Eugene Mancini. I have experience teaching six-year-olds, retirees, and those in between. I am patient and encouraging.

I am available to teach in the student's home or online.

Piano studies overview:

You can play what you can hear. I see that students have a well-rounded approach towards musicianship and playing. Lessons should include theory, ear training, etc. to ensure that students understand what they are playing.

Beginning students might start with a method such as the well-known 'Piano Adventures' by Faber and Faber. More advanced students will work on progressively more demanding literature.

In a piano lesson, we will cover many different aspects
of playing. The student and I will analyze a new piece of music in various ways while coming up with an idea of how it sounds. I will play the piece and make practice suggestions. The student will play prepared pieces, and I will make suggestions. I value spontaneity.

My adult students say I am insightful.

I've been teaching music for over 10 years. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to begin reading playing fun single line short songs and as time goes on you'll be able to play beautiful songs with both hands. I specialize in classical, Jazz, Rock, and Klezmer style music, and I typically use the Alfreds Method books. I also place strong emphasis on reading, rhythm, and finger placement, and I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

For starters Christina came in 7 mins late (6:37) but promptly took her hands off the piano at 7:00 Pm stating, 30 mins done.
She made no effort to introduce herself to our 6 year old or get to know her atall.
She just sat down and started talking about this is a note,half note and the piano has groups of 2 and 3.
What does a half note mean to a 6 year old who is brand new to piano?
The lesson was absolutely drag and boring with my child just copying what she did.
Totally disappointing. Need a new instructor.

Aaron teaches piano to my 8 year old daughter, Abby. She is shy but loves piano and she very much looks forward to his visits! He customizes her lessons to her skill level and interests. No question he is a serious musician, but he is also laid back and funny which is perfect for young kids as it puts them at ease. Abby is thriving under Aaron's instruction, I'm so glad we found him!

Don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions!
