I'm not currently taking beginner students, but I can refer you to my studio partner, Andrew. Please see his TakeLessons page here:
Learn about music theory regarding rhythm, harmony, and melody and how it applies to the piano. Learn how to talk about music and improve how you read sheet music and lead sheets.
Learn about more advanced rhythmic feels. Understand modal concepts, and how to use them to improve how you currently play. Venture past diatonic playing into full comprehension of out chords and certain types of chromaticism.
Playing piano is fun! So should your piano lessons.
I've taught piano since I was in high school, and continued to teach as a student at Cornell University. I also taught theory classes in the Cornell Piano Society, where I also served as President for 4 years.
Why? I simply love music, piano, and sharing it with others.
I love teaching piano! I have been teaching all levels for many years. I hold a Doctorate in Piano Performance, an Artist Diploma from the Mozarteum Academy in Austria, and a Bachelor's Degree in Piano Performance. I am especially strong in teaching technique, sightreading, and repertoire. I have also had extensive Suzuki teacher training. My students do very well at competitive and non-competitive events. And they have loads of fun!
Beginning Piano students will be taught the basics in a fun but productive way. I will teach a strong foundation so a student can move forward with confidence. Lessons would be individualized to focus on areas that need the most guidance.
Students will learn the basics about rhythm, harmony, and melody and how they apply to piano. They will become fluent in the 12 basic keys to a degree where you can play simple songs in any of them.
I will teach you proper and comfortable techniques to play the piano. You will learn to play in all major keys and with different rhythmic styles so you can play songs you like. I include learning to play piano using both hands so that you can play melody and harmony simultaneously. I will also teach you how to read music for your instrument. My lessons are adjusted to the specific student's pace and their learning style. Piano is a great starting instrument for all ages because anything you learn on piano you can apply to most other instruments.
