About Malda
At age of 6, I began extensive professional piano training and have been performing around same age too. Since 1993 I hold Bachelors Degree in Music with Major in Piano Performance and Pedagogy.

I'
ve been teaching piano to all ages and levels for over 20 years. I love teaching and I'm very patient and kind.

I believe in the power of music to reach deep into the human personality.
I would like to inspire and educate my students in general music knowledge and introduce them to the
beautiful atmosphere the piano instrument creates.
I have participated in numerous competitions and recitals with my students, where many of my students have won awards.

I'm a highly experienced Piano Teacher and active performing Concert Pianist.

I'm also available to accompany students for recitals, concerts, etc.

*** Lesson Details ***
It is my passion to teach music, investing in the lives of students and using music to cultivate their growth.

It is so important that all my students get out of the lessons what they want and be happy. For ex. I choose some piano pieces and I play for the student, and the student can choose the one that likes more, or if a student has a particular piece that really wants to learn then I explain that and find creative ways to allow that student to meet their goal.
This technique would work for the student, pushes them to practice more and enjoy that. With experience in classical and contemporary music, my teaching philosophy is to build strong technique, to develop musicality, to improve sight-reading skills, and to give to my students good knowledge of theory.

I will train for competitions, recitals or just for fun.

I enjoy teaching all levels (beginners - very advanced) and abilities.

I'm very friendly, patient and believe that anyone can learn to play piano and love their lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living Room: Piano, couch, parents can sit in on lesson

*** Travel Equipment ***
Piano or keyboard

*** Specialties ***
I teach piano (performance and pedagogy), music theory using any method that is suitable for my student,like, Alfred, Nancy and Randall Faber, Bastien, etc.

This istructor is a definate 10

My instructor ( Malda Keri) is extremely well qualified as an instructor. She is patient, understanding an has a sense of humor. I am a senior with a visual deficiency and she always seems to take that into consideration during my practice sessions. She has been with me for 6 months and I feel major progress.

About Jeff
*** Travel Equipment ***
When I travel, they're expected to have an instrument, amp (if necessary) and note book.

*** Specialties ***
Having taught for so long I rely on my own experience as a mu
sician, using my extensive knowledge of music theory and the guitar as an instrument to impart a heightened awareness and love of performance and the rewards of a disciplined and focused practice habit to my students. Whether a student wants to learn rock, blues, jazz, pop, folk or other genres, I give them key insights and the right approach to achieve his/her goal in the minimum amount of time. Practice is essential to growth.

About Brett
My Name is Brett Kirchdorfer & I've been playing music for over 20 years now, teaching for 10. I specialize in Appalachian Old Time, Bluegrass, Irish, Country, Blues, Folk, & Jazz. Fiddle music and im
provisation are my areas of expertise 😉. Open to working on any style one might be interested in as well. Can read, write, & teach through standard sheet music or help by ear & demonstration.

After years of appreciating, studying, & working with a variety of different areas of musical expression. I've developed effective techniques of communicating my understanding of what music can be. I want to help you find YOUR voice. now this comes with studying those who have come before, actively listening and developing appreciation for a great many who have laid tremendous groundwork us. Eventually, through proper & attentive practice, we can link our muscles to our mind creating a vessel for your unique feeling to shine. in turn, allowing your muse to speak through you naturally & effortlessly.

Music is such a personal mode of expression & I genuinely love getting to experience what people can accomplish & create when given means to develop foundation & a gentle push to build on it. I take great joy in sharing what Ive gathered from my years of experience, and pride for my art is no doubt apparent as I take my craft very seriously, though always approaching lightheartedly. I have put in the time, effort and energy & so I know what it takes to develop exceptional prowess. I'm a patient person and take pride in listening and thoughtfully directing simultaneously. I'm a firm believer in that you will get what you put in. If we can understand how to properly motivate ourselves, then we can put more in, approach all angles & yield tremendous results. For those of you who have months or years under your belt, lets cultivate new appreciation and skill, for the rest of you it's important to remember that it's never too hard and one is never too old to start at the beginning.

Brett is an amazing instructor! His patience, thoughtfulness, and caring for his students is unmatched. He is also very knowledgable and insightful in his study of bluegrass, old time, and fiddle tunes.

I highly recommend him. I've sure learned a lot from spending time in his studio!
