Beginner, Intermediate
I am an experienced teacher of over 15 years, specializing in the beginner/intermediate piano students preferable ages 7 years upwards.
Not only will you be playing songs in no time, but you will also be taught a strong foundation of sight reading, music theory, technique, and more, and I guarantee that at the end of your class, you will be looking forward to the next class.

I am a tickler for ensuring that the material taught is learnt, and so I may use basic everyday knowledge to apply the principles. I am patient especially when dealing with young children, whose attention span may be short. I balance off the piano experience with the fundamentals of theory, which goes hand in hand with the piano playing experience. My students and their parents know that part of mastering the art of piano playing, is practising on their own at home, hence having a keyboard/piano or access to a keyboard/piano is essential. My classes are very structured.

About Patricia M.

I have taught piano for about fifteen (15) years at both the beginner and intermediate stages. I completed up to Grade 8 of The Royal School of Music Exams. It gives me great joy when my students are able to apply the theory foundation to the practical. I consider myself a patient teacher and look for fun ways to teach the younger ones. I also play by ear and am able to teach how to play contemporary music using chord sheets. I believe that even in contemporary music, great technique is essential to any and every genre, hence lessons are pitched to the goals of the student.

I am a firm believer that my students should own or have access to a piano or keyboard, as practicing on their own reinforces the material taught.

In addition to teaching piano, I have used my piano skills in my home church, playing for services, rehearsing with the praise and worship team and training the choirs, and have been professionally employed to play at weddings, graduations and church events.
Whatever your goal in learning to play the piano, I am here to give you that jump start and to help you to become a great musician.

I Eileen Francis, a graduate of Jamaica School of Music, and as a professional piano teacher, all my exams and passes were done in Jamaica and all this was from The Associated Board of The Royal School of Music London.

Patricia started music as a child, and took all her exams right up to Grade 8. She is an excellent musician and also a wonderful teacher. She taught with me for a long time. She now plays for churches, and professionally for functions. She knows how to get small children and adults to understand and read notes and also to write music. I recommend her very highly in this profession.

I have known Mrs. Patricia Masters as a lover of Music whether it be Musical instruments, theatrical presentations, songs of different genres, she loves them all and is involved in creating the atmosphere where music has its input. She is very diligent and creative and excellent at what she does where music is concerned. Music is her life. As a teacher, a choir director and a musician, she makes sure that it is perfect for presentation and that at the end of the day, her student excels. Mrs. Masters is dependable and reliable.

Patricia knows her music very well. She is a very good Choir Director and demands nothing but the best. When it comes to patience she has got it all. She is a true professional and loves to teach music. I recommend her highly in what ever way she plans to do her music.

I have known Patricia for over thirty-five years where, as a music student I was fortunate to have had her as one of my piano teachers. I found her to be exceedingly patient not only with me but with all students, as she encouraged us to do our very best as we perfected our performance technique. She is a very gifted and knowledgeable piano teacher and her love for the art is evident in her enthusiastic and energetic teaching techniques. Through her influence, many of her students including myself have gone on to pursue careers in music.

Presently I have the opportunity to work alongside her as we both are a pianist and attend the same church. She also is the choir director for the senior choir and brings her passion for teaching to engage the choir members as she takes them through their voice techniques and interpretation of the various songs they practice and perform. She is highly respected for her professionalism and dedication and well-loved by the choir and church members as the music she provides brings joy to their music experience.

I heartily endorse Patricia as a great music teacher .

Sincerely

Deneise Walters

I have known Mrs. Patricia Masters for over twenty (20) years. She is a very pleasant, and patient individual. Patricia loves music. She is a trained and practising musician. Although she plays more than one instrument, she is an expert on the piano/keyboard. She is very competent in teaching individuals (from any age group) to play the piano. Patricia is equally competent in teaching the theoretical aspects of music and is very keen on technique (e.g. posture, piano fingering, interpretation). She is also gifted in training persons to sing. She has trained soloists, small groups, and choirs. She is very meticulous in ensuring that the harmonies are balanced. I have every confidence in Patricia’s abilities as a piano teacher/instructor and I am certain that she will meet your expectations.
