Perhaps my most popular lesson, I teach piano to all ages and all levels. I am particularly skilled in the area of accelerating the beginner/early intermediate pianist into a high level of musicianship. I customize my piano instruction to each individual student, so that each can develop a plan to achieve personal growth and success through musicianship.

About Victor
I received my Bachelor of Music Degree in Organ Performance from the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music in June of 2010, studying under Dr. Roberta Gary. I have completed two years of additional graduate study at the Conservatory, and plan to utilize these credits to earn a Master's in Music in the next few years.

I began playing the piano at the age of 5, later moving to the organ at 9. I have held a church job since then, working in multiple different denominations and settings. I have a strong background of piano, accompanying, theory, sacred liturgy, and musical performance. I enjoy studying and listening to many genres of music as well as performing them. I am very interested in historically informed performance and understanding different techniques as they are related to the composition style of different time perio
ds.

I enjoy working with students of all ages. Regardless of your ability, age, or experience, I will work with you. We can work out a plan for lesson times, intensity of practice and work, and tailor the lesson to the right pace for you.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons tend to be tailored to the needs of individual students. I am not as much a fan of a strict curriculum that I use on each student. For beginners, one can expect to be given method books to get them moving in the right direction. As one advances, we eventually move on to repertoire. I take an approach to lessons that emphasizes total body awareness and high level mental awareness. The most important thing anyone can learn in music is that it isn't just about the right notes; it isn't about the right rhythm. It is about the complete musicianship and the complete awareness needed to truly understand and perform a work of music. In order to make this approach work, my strictness as a teacher varies depending on the level of devotion the student is willing to put forth. After six months with me as a teacher, expect to notice changes in the way you see music and comprehend your technique at the keyboard.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect students to purchase their own music. For beginners with method books, I have these available to the students to purchase from me.

*** Specialties ***
I am very highly trained in performance practices of the Baroque era, especially on the organ. I am also very specialized in body movement and efficient keyboard technique. I also have a lot of experience in the Romantic repertoire of the piano. Lastly, I am also well trained as an accompanist on both the organ and the piano.

I have enjoyed working with Victor. He is very knowledgeable about the music in particular the Baroque period. He brings a very good perspective that has enriched my understanding of early music. I can say clearly that one leaves sessions with a desire to learn more and with an understanding of music as serious branch of human study rather than something that is simply fun (in the sense of being mundane amusement).

Victor is an amazing teacher and we have loved working with him for many years now. He taught all 3 of my boys at all different levels and they all progressed very well in piano. He has also served as accompanist for my son who plays the trumpet. I highly recommend Victor as an amazing teacher for all levels who truly wants to help the kids learn.

"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 / CONDUCTING - 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 taught at The College of Saint Rose in Albany, NY for the last 14. My degrees are from Western Michigan University, Indiana University, and Ball State University. During my teaching career, I provided private lessons outside of the school and the college. When I left NY, I had 35 students of which 6 remained with me online. I love teaching and create an atmosphere where the students, regardless of age, feel successful in their endeavors.

WHAT DO I TEACH?
*Piano: All levels from beginning to professional
*Organ: All levels from beginning to professional
*Voice: Beginning and those working with music theater
*Condu
cting: All levels

WHERE DO I TEACH?
*Piano: Mililani Homes, St Peter’s Episcopal & Online
*Organ: St. Peter’s Episcopal & Online
*Voice: St. Peter’s Episcopal (In person lessons only)
*Conducting: St. Peter's Episcopal (In person lessons only)

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 for another. It's important for me to know my students so I can better shape the lesson. I love questions, reflection, and humor. I'm very patient and understanding. We are all incredibly busy and accept that students may have weeks they are not able to practice a huge amount of time.

WHAT DO I DO IN ADDITION TO GIVING LESSONS?
I am the Coordinator for Therapeutic Music & Volunteer Coordinator at Hospice Hawaii and the Director of Music at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Honolulu.

I've had the opportunity to work with people as young as three and as old as 62. But as far as piano goes I've had mostly students in the Pre-K and early Elementary age range. My piano lessons are fun, engaging and comprehensive. I don't use one method, but have studied many methods, developed my own and customize lessons to best fit the student. My goal isn't just to impart information about music or technique, my goal is to help my students develop within themselves a living musicality that will be with them throughout their whole lives, no matter what they choose to do with their practice.

About Andrew
I've been practicing and studying music for nearly 12 years. Conceptual performance, free improvisation and Sonic sculpture for over 5. For me, music isn't just about playing an instrument. A musical practice is an opportunity for incredible self growth. Excercise for our minds and awareness.

I've worked with students ranging from age 3 to age 62 in the year or so I've been tutoring. I've taught piano mostly ,but am more technically proficient with guitar(electic/acoustic/classical).

I'm a songwriter and recording/performing artist, my style is very ecclectic and inspired by anything from classical, jazz, avant garde, to pop and folk music. I'm confident and versatile. Im comfortable playing or even performing with most instruments. It's taken alot of practice, reasearch, experimentation, and collaboration but over time musc has give
n my experience life and enriched my life and those around me.

I believe in the cultivation of a living musicality.

My approach emphasises the importance of process, exploration and discovery, as well as the study and analysis of traditional concepts. I propose, active listening to be the simplest form of composition. And as musicians an active ear is central, not only in practice, but generally, for creative evolution and innovation.

I've found the most effective methods effectively balance theory and practice.

I believe the biggest inhibitor to growth, musical or otherwise, is a lack of confidence. A lack that comes from too much pressure to produce idealized results-- fear of mistakes...

I embrace the developmental process,
I work with every student to make each lesson plan efficient, meaningful and inspiring.

I’m an enthusiastic music teacher eager to impart the love of music as well as the history, techniques, and expressions of piano. Students will feel accomplished and confident of their knowledge as they reach the expectations set for each piano grade level. I am dedicated to developing a personalized curriculum for all young piano players that will make any student excited. I make sure to implement different learning strategies so all students can fully grasp every lesson taught.

About Monica
Hey! I’m Monica I’m a student at St Edwards University in Austin I began playing piano at 5 years old and ever since it’s been my passion. I love teaching piano it’s a fun experience to see how students are able to excel so rapidly. I’ve not only been teaching students how to play piano but music theory, history, ear training, and much more. My favorite genre is classical yet I am a strong believer in being versatile in all scopes of music. I base my curriculum off of the requirements needed to keep up with the expectatoins made by the royal conservatory of music. By doing this the student can test for certificates that provide more of a professional background to their piano education. I am flexible to what the student wishes to learn while following curriculum, if the student wishes to learn a piece I will see how we can achieve that.

Hello! I have been teaching piano since 2006 and playing since I was 5 years old! I have had the privilege of winning a number of competitions and awards during my stint as a professional pianist, making upwards of $300/hour, playing at events of all kinds and with multiple bands/orchestras in the process. I have taught all ages (as young as 4!) and am passionate about seeing my students fall in love with the same instrument that started my musical career. I specialize in the classical style (from Beethoven to Einaudi), a strong foundation in music theory (for any instrument), and chords and chord progressions (great for playing in bands and improvisation).

About Daniel
Hello! My name is Daniel Joseph, though most people call me "Joe". I have a number of passions in life, including academics and music. I have played piano since I was 5 years old and picked up a slew of other instruments along the way (violin, guitar, bass, drums, etc.). I was in a professional boy choir from ages 8-13 and was privileged to sing around the world, in the Vatican, on the TV show 'Dexter', multiple showings for 'Good Morning America', and more! But...piano was always my first love.

On the academic side of things, I was privileged to become a professional math, writing, and reading tutor in 2006 with Kumon Centers before branching out with my own practice. I have consistently helped hundreds of students from pre-school to college improve in those two disciplines. I enjoy building friendships with my students and would love
to help YOU improve your grades. I missed only one question on my SAT and was accepted to Harvard a few months later (though I chose not to attend). Currently, I am a card-carrying member of MENSA (a High-IQ society whose members must have an IQ within the top 2%). If you want a fun but knowledgeable tutor to help you grow, I'm your man!

Musically, I have been trained in the classical and jazz styles, taken part in piano competitions since I was 10 years old, won many awards on the regional and state level, and played with many orchestras, bands, and other groups over the years. I also had a number of years where I played professionally for events and shows. All this to say, I am no stranger to the stage and to what it takes to "make it" in the music world while still remembering why you love the instrument you play.

Whether you are wanting to learn how to play the best of Mozart, jam with your friends in a band, or build a strong foundation of musical theory so that you can switch instruments (or impress your loved ones) with ease, I can help.

I fervently believe that music and our academic studies are a part of who we are, and if you want to learn how to express yourself on the ivories or with numbers, I'm your man!

I specialize in teaching beginning piano, and the vast majority of my students are beginners. All of my piano students use Nancy and Randall Faber's Piano Adventures series, which has adapted versions for very young learners, older beginners, and adult learners. Students will have music theory and history incorporated into every lesson, and will usually have a homework assignment incorporating these as well. Once a student has mastered the basics, I will introduce classic literature appropriate to his or her level. I encourage all of my piano students to participate in OMEA Solo and Ensemble contest when they reach the appropriate age and skill level.

About Lindsey
Hello, I'm Lindsey Walch! I'm a 2011 graduate of Ohio Northern University with a degree in Music Education. I live in Xenia with my husband, three children, and dog. My primary job is "Mom," but I'm also a teacher. I offer private music lessons on several instruments, either in my own studio or in the client's home. Teaching privately gives me the flexibility to tailor lessons to the individual student, so we can work collaboratively to achieve your musical goals. Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned vet looking to hone your skills, I'd love to work with you!
