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!

As one of my students, you can come to expect a friendly welcome at the beginning of the lesson and then throughout expect our main goal to be helping you make your best music possible. I possess a wealth of knowledge and skill collected from decades of practice, master classes, winning competitions, earning degrees and performing both in bands and as a solo artist.
I am relaxed and happy, disciplined and product-oriented while at the same time understanding th
e difference between practicing for improvement and statically repeating the same exercise or passage over and over. We want to make the most of our time during the lesson and your practice sessions by focusing on achieving your goals quickly.

Lakewood, OH

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.

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!

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!

I love sharing my passion for music with my students. I am an active performing singer/songwriter/musician and share my real life experience with my students.

About Maggie
I am a professional singer, pianist, songwriter, and recording artist. I graduated from Oklahoma City University with a Bachelors of Music, specifically piano.

Piano and voice students can expect to improve week to week. I can help any student to play/sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied classical piano and contemporary keyboard for 20+ years. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student.

As a professional recording artist I frequently take trips to LA and Nashville for co-writing, recording, and taking meetings. I have written with well-known writers. I love to mentor students who want to become effective,
dynamic songwriters.

My personal passion is contemporary music but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

I took lessons with JunZhao (Ryan) because I wanted to strengthen my technical piano skills and also learn more music theory. He was a great teacher, and taught me a lot about how to make playing the piano feel effortless. Not only was he knowledgeable on the technique, but also on the musicality perspective of playing, and the theoretical side of playing. I would definitely recommend Ryan as a piano teacher for players of any level, but especially beginning and intermediate level pianists.
