R. ROBIN G.

Cuyahoga Falls, OH

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 ***
I specialize in teaching what the student has a desire to learn and great technique combined with a lot of music theory, for those taking piano and/or composition lessons with me. 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.

Sylvia is doing a great job with my 5 year old son. She is patient but no nonsense in her approach. She is very good at breaking the concepts down to a child's level. She has been coming to my home to give the lessons and is always on time. She has been flexible when I have needed to move the appointment time. We are quite pleased.

A professional music venue hosts spring and fall recitals; Instruction from a paid performer; I hold a Master of Music degree and an Ohio Teaching Certificate!
*** Lesson Details ***
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 the 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.

Aaron is a talented instructor. He has worked with our son for more than 2 years teaching him cello and music theory. Aaron has the gift of being an outstanding musician, but also the gift of being able to impart that knowledge to others in a meaningful way, such that even young children and teens learn easily from his instruction. We have recommended Aaron to others and he is equally as good with adults. His manner is professional, he takes pride in the accomplishments of his students and is dedicated to the success of his students.
