Glen Allen, VA

"Experienced Piano teacher of 7 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of classical and popular piano skills. I specialize in rock, spiritual, patriotic and standard music and typically use the Alfred series books for all ages. I teach music theory, ear training, dynamics, technic as well as sight reading. I also have the following tools available to use during lessons: piano, sheet music, keyboard charts and more. Let a caring teacher bring the love of music into your life. Let your talent shine.

About Sandra
I studied under Mr. Willis Ley at Ley Studio for eighteen years. She was an accompanist for the Heritage School of Dance for twelve years and also played for the School for the Richmond Ballet for One Year. Sandra was trained in contemporary, patriotic and classical music as well as music theory. She has taught children and adults piano both in their homes as well as in her home. She is an accomplished pianist who will give the student a rewarding and fulfilling experience in mastering the keyboard to their fullest potential and play any song for there own enjoyment and for the enjoyment of others.

*** Lesson Details ***
As a teacher, I would work with the student on learning there favorite song. This would be a goal to set for the student for the first three months. They would be taught to do the scale with their right hand.
They would learn there sharps and flats and the difference between the two key signatures. They would also learn during the first six months some of the basic terms in music theory. I would set goals, but never overwhelm the student, but work with them according to how much they could take in. They would have weekly assignments. If an assignment is not mastered during that time, then we would review it and carry it to the next week. When one assignment is mastered, then the student would work on the next. This would be a step by step processed. My goal for the student the first six months is to get that child or adult to be able to play their chords in their left hand, octaves and fillings in their right hand and know how to work the pedals. They would understand and know the key signatures and what timing they are playing in. The student would also know some of the basic music terms. Please keep in mind that this depends on how much information that the student can process. With some it could take a little bit longer. With others it would take less time.

*** Studio Equipment ***
f/w keyboard ("It's heavy, it was metal inside it!") w/ seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect payment on any music material that I purchase at the Music Store.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Rock, Classical, Patriotic, Standard and Spiritual and also children's music for beginners. I do a wide range of music from the fifties up to today.

***In-Home Availability***
Starting January 2019, I will have an available spot for 1-3 new students (2 or 3 only if they are in one household). A one hour student would be from 7:30pm to 8:30pm and 2-3 students would be from 7:30pm up to 9:00pm.

I have been teaching piano since 2010 in a wide variety of settings, styles, and age groups. It is never too early or late to begin leaning piano!

I tailor my teaching approach for the specific needs and goals of each student, always putting their priorities first. While I am versed in theoretical approaches and using method books like Piano Adventures and the Hal Leonard series, I am also fluent in working on contemporary music with a focus on ear training and improvisation.

About Tyler
Hi! My name is Tyler Berg, and I'm a great resource for drum set, guitar, piano, bass, and music theory lessons in Portland, OR. Conveniently located in the Mt. Tabor neighborhood, my studio is equipped with all the instruments and lesson material needed to provide engaging, challenging, and fun lessons for students of all backgrounds. I have experience teaching students ranging from age 4 to 70, in settings varied as private instruction, group classes, ensemble coaching, and high school/college masterclasses.

Taking lessons is one of the best and fastest ways to enhance your musical abilities. Learning a musical instrument is also proven be similar to a full body work out for the brain. Oh yea, it's also going to be AWESOME!

I’ve been teaching piano for 12 years with students from ages 3 to 80. Since everybody learns differently, I tailor each lesson to fit the student. I like to have fun in my lessons and have open communication with my students. I think it’s important to develop a good rapport with each student and I always take student preferences and needs into consideration when developing specialized learning plans.

About Danielle

I am an adult who has no experience with any type of instrument and was very nervous and intimidated at first. Then I met with Michael, and though there was a ton of information we had to go through, he really made me feel at ease. He has the knowledge, patience, and understanding I was really looking for in a teacher and I'm so happy I found him!

We will work on whatever style the student will like to learn! If they are a beginner, we will go through all of the basics slowly and very thoroughly. I like to start by having my students get familiar with the piano and exploring all of the sounds it can make. Students will learn how to identify notes on the piano and also through reading music. Lessons will always be fun and engaging!

About Matt
I attended West Chester University from 2011-2015 and graduated with my bachleor's in music education. I performed in the marching band, symphonic band, wind ensemble, jazz ensembles, various trumpet ensembles, and a brass quintet. One of my trumpet ensembles made it to the semifinals in the National Trumpet Competition. I backed up various world famous trumpet artists during the International Trumpet Guild Conference at Valley Forge in 2014 such as Bobby Shew, Randy Brecker, Tine Thing Helseth, Canadian Brass, and many others. I took lessons from Robert Skoniczin and Jean Christophe Dobrzelewski during my time at WCU.

I can teach any style that you are interested in and can take students of all ages. I believe it is important to have a good musical foundation so we will go over music theory as well in lessons. I have extensive experie
nce teaching trumpet, guitar, piano, bass, ukulele, and saxophone. We will play whichever style of music you prefer. Lessons will be fun!

About Rachel W.

Richmond, VA

I have been giving lessons since 2006, and I have seen music enrich the lives of many in countless ways. Whether you are looking for a new hobbie, a new passion, or for something to keep your kids engaged and busy, learning an instrument has endless benefits both long term and short.
I will make a personalized lesson plan based on 2 big questions: why do you want to take lessons? Where do you want to be at the end of it?
Lets go from there.

About Rachel
I have been playing the piano and the trombone since childhood. Growing up in a musical family, music has always played a big part in my life. I was active in school bands in addition to taking private lessons throughout grade school. In high school I was a member of Tri-M (a musical honor society), qualified for district band through audition, and was ranked in the top 10% of trombone players in the state of Virginia. Throughout my education I developed a working knowledge of brass instruments, music theory, a variety of playing styles, and much more.

After high school, I pursued and earned a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology at Virginia Commonwealth University, while continuing my musical career, playing in bands offered by the school as well as in the Richmond area. I am currently active with the ACCA Temple Shiners in their German band
, The Sauerkrauts, 100% of whose proceeds go to benefit children in Shriner-owned hospitals.

I have been giving private lessons since 2006, and have a deep passion for musical education. I feel learning to play an instrument enriches life in a way few other things can.

About Jenelle Catherina
I am a working artist, currently singing at the Venetian as a gondolier and subbing in cover bands and performing in operas and musicals around the valley. I want to help students explore not only the capabilities of their own voice but to also explore how to manipulate their instrument in a healthy manner in order to cover different styles and genres. By doing this, I wish to expose students to different styles of singing, from French melodíe to classic rock in hopes of leaving my studio as a well-rounded, knowledgable, and versatile vocalist.
