I like to tailor my teaching style to my student's needs, so you can progress at your rate, with your kind of music. I can teach pop or classical, whichever you prefer. What's important is your having fun and making progress.

Your goals are my goals. Whether you want to learn to play from music or by ear, it's up to you.

I like to explain the relevance of theory to the music at hand, and how it can help further understanding of the piece, even making it easier and more fun to play.

About Angelika

Musical Background My goal as a piano teacher is to help every student understand and learn to appreciate the language of Music. Every student is unique and therefore receives a personalized piano education. No two student learn exactly the same way at precisely the same speed! Therefore treating students as individuals is very important to me. With time students will discover what music means to them personally. The impact and influence of music on people is precious in many different ways. Piano lessons are a lifetime investment and its rewards and benefits will help enrich your life. I am a classically trained pianist from Germany, where I acquired a Piano Teaching Certification. Thanks to my wonderful piano teacher who was both a concert pianists and college-level music professor ...

If you want the best, then schedule a lesson with Angelika. I am an adult who wanted to learn more about piano but also in understanding music in general. So far, I have learned many techniques that make quite a difference in the way a piece sounds and in how much enjoyment I (and anyone who may be listening!) get from playing it. Angelika explains things very well and has the patience sometimes needed when learning something new…or in becoming better at it. Go ahead, do it for yourself (or those you love). You will not be disappointed!

ARE YOU LOOKING FOR AN EXELLENT PIANO TEACHER???
GIVE ANGELIKA A CALL AND YOU'LL BE VERY GLAD YOU DID. SHE IS A GREAT TEACHER. MY 9 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER LIKES HER PIANO LESSONS A LOT.
Paul B. Portland, ME

I've been teaching piano now for 15 years. My goal is for the student to learn to play by feel in addition to reading music. A standard lesson would consist of some playing in books and going over some music theory followed by playing by feel. This would include blues,jazz, and rock grooves. My approach is creative and customized to the prospective student. The student needs to enjoy learning the piano. A happy student is a successful one.

About Paul

I am a musician who has played in many bands. My primary instrument is piano and voice. I also play rhythm guitar. My current group is a "Who" tribute band, performing a complete history of the rock group, The Who. Please check out our website magicbustour.com I play by ear but also read music. If you are looking for an old school, rigid, teacher who only has students only follow books, then you should look elsewhere. If you want to be able to play or sing with feel and learn music theory with some reading in a comfortable working studio then contact me. *** Studio Equipment *** -Petrof upright piano - Mackie PA system - Guild F15 acoustic guitar *** Travel Equipment *** -Roland Midi 2 - Guild F-15 acoustic guitar *** Specialties *** Patient, creative, flexible and fun.

Paul is a great teacher--friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about music. He teaches in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. Since beginning lessons my voice has improved immensely. Paul is also very flexible and is an all-around superb instructor.

I believe it is difficult for people to take singing lessons because when you sing, you are a little vulnerable or even embarrassed at first. Paul makes the whole experience comfortable right from the start. I also have learned a few things within the first couple lessons already. I would recommend Paul to anyone who is thinking about learning more about their own voice and how to unlock your voice's potential.

About Micah

Hi and welcome to my page! I'll get straight to the point and provide you with a little bit of information about myself: I'm a professional musician and music educator, by trade, and fluent in Spanish. I'm a graduate of the University of Southern Maine, earning my bachelor's degree in Music Performance with an emphasis in jazz studies, and a graduate of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, earning my master's degree in Jazz Composition and Arranging.

Benjamin G. Sanford, ME

I can teach anything lower than the Royal Conservatory of Toronto's grade rating of 7 (much harder than most piano method book grade levels) without any preparation and have played a handful of diploma level pieces in the "classical" idiom, which are considered the hardest difficulty pieces.
In the jazz idiom, I know many of the exercises of Charlie Banacos as well as an Abersold method. I have studied jazz extensively throughout most of my life and my main influences are Bill Evans, Chick Corea, Chet Baker, and Miles Davis.

About Benjamin

I studied jazz performance & classical music at USM and studied jazz piano with Charlie Banacos. I have been teaching since I was 15 years old through the state's Gifted program and qualified for both gifted in fine arts as well as the general IQ requirement. I currently have students ranging from the age of 4 to 78 years old, most of which are in the range of 6-17 years old. I have undergone background checks with Tune Town music in Wells, ME. since I started working there 6 years ago. I have had great success with many students resulting in some deciding on music as a career and going off to college specifically for piano. I have had experience teaching people with special needs ranging from autism to ADD, and also sometimes with what I consider great success. (Achieved ...

Stephanie K. Portsmouth, NH

I love piano and I hope you will too! I have experience tutoring children and work very well with them, but I will teach students of all ages. I will create lesson plans based on you and your goals and knowledge of music. I believe a solid foundation in music theory is most important in learning a new instrument and that learning piano should be fun!

About Stephanie

Hi, I'm Stephanie and I am just starting out as a piano teacher for beginners. I'm currently available to teach lessons at your home. I took private piano lessons from age 6 to 18 and received additional lessons in Jazz/Blues for another year. I enjoy teaching my friends and seeing them improve and I would love to teach more! Throughout my university education, I volunteered in teaching elementary school-aged children weekly and have become very comfortable working with children. My lesson plans will be personalized to each student and will focus on music theory. I believe a good foundation and understanding of music is the most important part of learning a new instrument. The better you understand the instrument, the more you will enjoy playing it! I will also make recordings ...
