I love to teach beginning piano, to students of all ages. I have many years experience teaching young students, age 5-12, general music, but I also love to teach adults. I am a very patient and positive instructor. You will learn the foundations of reading music, proper hand position, and the beginning development of technique. You will learn in a positive environment. Also, FYI, we have cats in our home!

About Darla
Hello, I am a professional musician with over 21 years of service as a military bandsmen. I've been stationed all over the world and have had the privilege to perform in some of the greatest concert halls. I love to work with students of all ages and can teach beginning-intermediate piano, and beginning-advanced flute. Prior to joining the military, I taught general music in the Texas Public School system. I have a bachelor€'™s degree in music education from the University of Texas at Arlington. I am a very active flutist in this area, performing with The Tidewater Winds, The Hampton Roads Philharmonic, and various small chamber groups.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe in creating a very positive environment for my students. I am very patient and upbeat. Whether you are a beginner, or more advanced, I can tailor the lessons to your ne
eds. I will give you a solid foundation in the fundamentals of music in a creative and fun way! I enjoy working with students of all ages. If you are just starting to learn, or have decided to come back to music lessons, I believe you will enjoy studying with me! ***Also, be advised, that if you are a beginner, I only teach 30 minute lessons! This is best for all beginners, whether a young student, or an adult student!! (Also, FYI, we do have cats in our home!)

*** Studio Equipment ***
Home studio with an upright piano for lessons.

I am near the top-end of her student's age bracket... I hope she increases her range in a year or two. I'm returning to lessons for my own enjoyment....and, in the first two weeks she taught more than a year with others. Specifically she showed me how to practice non-vibrato long tones to increase my volume and tone; she is helping me get solo pieces metrically correct, before I start adding the dynamics. And, she is helping to adjust my posture while playing,
I enjoy playing duets with her near the end of the lesson and hearing her play professionally at concerts around the peninsula.
I wish the lessons were longer.
I highly recommend her!

I am all about tailoring lessons to what the student wants. I have extensive experience teaching all levels of piano. I do expect students to practice but my teaching style is very positive and encouraging. I am able to provide references from former students/employers on request. The only thing I do not teach is piano playing by ear. I believe reading music is a valuable skill and once mastered playing by ear is a piece of cake!

About Amber
Hello! My name is Amber and I can't wait to begin music lessons with you! I've been teaching private lessons since 1996 when I was 15 and have loved helping my students accomplish their goals regardless of the level. I have a Bachelor's degree in piano and music education, a Master's degree in Vocal Performance, and am finishing a dissertation to complete my Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Vocal Performance and Pedagogy. I love to teach all ages and styles whether on the piano or voice. I have extensive training in opera and musical theatre. I am also a professional accompanist. I look forward to hearing from you and would love to help you reach your goals!

Amber is a magnificent teacher. She has tons of experience, and can identify problems and resolve concerns instantaneously. She is not forceful and will gladly work in accordance with the preferred pace of the student. Overall she is incredibly knowledgable and if you work with her and adhere to her notes and suggestions you will notice immediate qualitative improvement.

I've been teaching Piano for 9 almost 10 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love for music! Within the first few lessons, you'll start playing simple scales and as time goes on, you'll be able to sight read like a pro. I also specialize in music ear training and vocal harmony. I love working with students of all experience levels and look forward to working with you and your child.

About Kenneth
Hi, there! My name is Kenneth and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2009 and have loved helping my students sight read, play by ear, and further their music knowledge in theory. I went to Norfolk State University and majored in Music Education. I'm a knowledgeable, caring, and disciplined musician who will have high expectations of the students I teach. With me being your child's teacher you can also look forward to me being an awesome role model for your child. I am one of the youth leaders at my church and have a few youth musicians under my tutelage there as well. I am fully aware that not every person learns the exact same way, with that being said you can rest assured that I will cater to you and your child's learning needs. I look forward to helping you and/or your child reach your goals!

Mr. Kenneth is professional, pleasant, punctual and dependable to say the least. I couldn't have prayed for a better instructor for my 9-year old son Michael (MJ). He's very patient with my son. MJ has learned quite a bit in this timeframe. When Mr. Kenneth leaves MJ is able to execute with excellence as he has been instructed. Mr. Kenneth is a true inspiration. MJ is eager to practice all he's been taught because of the cultivating environment that's been set before him. He's reading notes and more! I highly recommend Mr. Kenneth!!!

Students will learn how to read music and to practice using effective strategies so that they can eventually learn anything they want to play. I also make sure to help my students understand the basic concepts of music theory in order to apply them creatively through improvisation and composition.

About Elyse
I recently moved to the Peninsula from Texas, where I taught piano for the Texas Christian University Music Preparatory Division for five years. I earned my Masters of Music in Piano Pedagogy degree from TCU in 2014, and before that my Bachelors of Music in Piano Pedagogy degree from the University of Oklahoma. I have lots of experience teaching students of all ages and ability levels. My main goals are for my students to learn to read music, understand basic music theory concepts so they can apply them through improvisation and composition, use effective practice strategies to learn any piece they want to learn, and to always enjoy the process of learning to play piano. I also really enjoy tailoring curriculum to each individual students learning style and interests. I know that students who play music they enjoy will practice more and I
'm very willing to accommodate special learning requests.
