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
control, 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. 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. If you have any questions about my schedule, please just shoot me the question and 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!

About Ceste S.

Rocky River, OH

View Full Profile

For beginning piano students, I use Marilyn Lowe's Music Moves for Piano series. If a student already has purchased piano books or has piano books from an older sibling, I would not ask the student to purchase more books until we had used what they already had to its full capacity. For adults and older beginners, I try to find out what the student is interested in, and guide my instruction accordingly to keep the lessons engaging and fun, no matter their ability level.

About Ceste
I'm a passionate, motivated instructor who loves working with students of all ages. In 2003, I graduated from Bryan College with a Bachelor of Science degree in Music Education with a vocal emphasis and in 2011, I graduated from James Madison University with a Masters of Arts degree in Music Education with a Kodaly emphasis. I have performed in the past with the Fine Arts Chorale of Kansas City, Washington Kantorei, Choralis, Arundel Vocal Arts Society, the U.S. Navy Band Sea Chanters, and the Three Rivers Dulcimer Society.

Ceste has a great ear and is willing to meet you wherever you are in your skill level. She cares about what kind of sound you dream of, identifies your natural strengths, and works those into realistic goals to work towards.

She practices using the Alexander Method. Her expertise in how the body affects the voice actually gave me a ton of useful information to successfully identify the cause of some chronic health/pain issues (although she never offers medical advice, I was able to integrate her feedback about what was affecting the quality of my voice into medical care with my Drs).

Thanks Ceste!

In each lesson we expand our learning by varying or focus from rhythm and theory studies, technic lessons, and literature. Depending on the age and experience of the student I teach from various methods. Some lesson books we use are Bastien, Alfred, and Belwin.

About Krystal
I began teaching piano lessons when I was a junior in high school at a local music store where I grew up. After high school I attended The University of Akron and received my Bachelor's of Music in Music Education with my main instrument being flute, while also continuing to study piano and voice. I currently teach music in the Stow-Munroe Falls City School District and teach private lessons out of my home studio in the Garfield/Maple/Independence/Valley View area.

Teaching music to students of all ages and abilities is my passion. It's never too early or too late to experience the joy of playing a musical instrument!

I've been teaching keyboard and music theory for almost 40 years and my students have learned to express themselves through music. My students have performed in recitals and in professional bands. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to read and play piano music and as time goes on you'll be able to improvise and compose their own music!. I specialize in jazz and pop, typically use the Faber or Bastien books for beginners and the John Thompson books for more proficient students.

About Carey
Carey has been teaching private lessons since 1976 and is currently available to teach lessons at your home, and online. Carey has helped students become proficient in different styles of music (rock, pop, jazz and classical), increased their confidence and self esteem , improved ability to improvise and achieve a greater understanding of music theory.
Carey received his training at The Ohio State University in 1976 where he received a Bachelor's degree in music theory and composition. As an expert in his field, Carey looks forward to helping new students achieve their goals. Carey's teaching style is patience with a good amount of humor!

As a general music teacher in the public school system, I strive to cultivate a love of music in young students. I have experience teaching piano, voice, and woodwinds throughout New Jersey. Lessons will include a focus on basic technique as well as music literacy and connections to songs students enjoy. I believe lessons should be a fun, rewarding activity that students look forward to.

About Alexandra
When I am not teaching a class or a private student, I am baking or enjoying the ocean. If I will be travelling to you it is guaranteed that I will be singing along to show tunes or classic rock on the way. I fell in love with music because I had teachers who were patient, kind, and motivated. Everyday I teach with them in mind so that students can build self-confidence with music and feel supported.

My piano lessons are customized to meet your specific musical goals, and whether you are an adult wanting to take lessons for the first time, or a teen aspiring to make music your full-time career, I am excited to help you achieve success on the piano. My lessons are rooted in classical training, and I incorporate many contemporary techniques including piano improvisation and playing by ear.

About Christopher
I have played and studied music for over 15 years, performing locally and internationally in a wide variety of solo, chamber, and orchestral music settings. I've had several years of teaching experience, both through my private studio as well as affiliations with local music schools.

While I love performing in a variety of contexts, what I love most is to inspire students and watch them succeed! I have a passion for empowering students to develop their musical skills, as well as to teach them how to have a love for what they do, to problem solve, to have grit, to be disciplined, and to use music to benefit their families and communities.

I started playing piano when I was 8 years old, and in high school I started playing viola. In 2018, I graduated with my B.M. in performance from Cedarville University, and anticipate graduation in
2021 from Kent State University with my M.M. in viola performance. I offer a high level of expertise, drawn from the curriculum of over five master teachers including Peter Slowik (Chicago Symphony), Joanna Zakany (Cleveland Orchestra), Sheridan Currie, Arthur Klima (Cleveland Orchestra), and Jane Jaquith.
