Bgcheck Background Checked


Private Piano Teacher

Piano lessons consist of technique, ear training, music reading, and music theory.
NYSSMA preparation is available.

About Bernadette

I am a NYS certified Music teacher who has been teaching in the school system for over 20 years.

I hold both my BM and MA degree in Music Education, and Jazz guitar was my major instrument in college. My focus is to teach techniques, skills and concepts for life-long learning.

I am currently available to teach Guitar, Music Theory and Beginner Piano.

Aside from teaching private guitar and piano lessons and teaching General music and Chorus in school, I perform and accompany singers as a guitarist in churches on Long Island.

For your added security, I've been VIRTUS trained with the Catholic Diocese of Rockville Centre and fingerprinted with the NYS Education department.

My system of guitar training includes:

* Right hand and Left hand technical exercises geared towards developing coordination and confidence;

*

work in music reading of standard music notation and TAB;

* Fretboard navigation, pick-control and fingerstyle techniques.

* Song repertoire knowledge and memorization

*Solo guitar interpretation of popular songs as well as accompaniment styles appropriate for backing your or another's voice;
*Ear-training and Music theory is incorporated into each lesson.

NYSSMA preparation is available for both Classical and Jazz auditions.

Piano lessons are available with concentration in proper hand mechanics and technique, theory, ear-training and music reading. NYSSMA preparation up through level 4 is available.

*** Lesson Details ***
My guitar lessons follow a structured format. I begin with technical exercises for both the picking/strumming hand and the fretting hand, leading to good sound production. As students learn to achieve well-balanced tones, they learn to apply that to the written page using standard music notation and the TAB system. From single notes, students learn to build harmony, (chords), from 2 notes, to 3, and thereafter, 4. Song repertoire is built from a variety of sources including published method books. Memorization of song repertoire is stressed.

After the student has learned the notes and scales in the first position as well as the associated chords, he/she can learn songs of his/her choosing from the Folk, Pop, Classical and Jazz repertoire that is appropriate to his/her current level.

Piano method books used include the Dozen-A-Day and Hanon technique exercises as well as the Schaum and Michael Aaron method book series'.

NYSSMA training/coaching is available for both piano and guitar with suitable training beginning a least a year before the NYSSMA audition is to take place.

The Guitar student should have a good quality guitar, (steel strings, nylon strings, or steel-string electric) professionally set-up with light-gauged strings (for the beginners), a strap, a music stand, and time and space in the home in order to encourage a daily routine of practice.

The Piano student should have daily access to a piano or keyboard instrument with weighted keys in order to be able to practice lesson material daily.

For young students, a practice chart is given where a student is to mark his/her practice time in order for progress to be made.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a dedicated room in my home that is set up for private practice and teaching. It has an electronic piano, folding chairs, a music stand and guitar amplifiers and cables.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring an acoustic guitar with me to all out-going lessons so that I can play along with the student and demonstrate techniques as necessary. I bring extra blank sheets of music writing paper, fret board diagrams, and study sheets, as well as extra copies of the books I use most frequently. I can purchase books/materials for the student, with the student's or parent/guardian's reimbursement, or the student may purchase materials on their own.

*** Specialties ***
Pick-style and finger-style guitar, both acoustic and electric; music reading, music theory; re-harmonization and arrangement techniques to make a song your own!

So far so good. Very patient as mistakes after mistake was made. Corrected quite a few mistakes I was making so that my habits would be good habits from the start. Let me talk to myself as I messed up and complimented me when I was on the right track.

complete novice; adult student. First lesson very relaxed. Excellent blend through-out lesson of questions and information my goals and background as well as instructor's goals for me and his background. First "technical" part of lesson was manageable and care taken by Lyle to make sure I understood what was being presented. I left the first lesson feeling this would be a good fit between instructor and student

Piano was my very first instrument growing up! It has certainly built a great foundation for me as a musician, and I know it will do the same for you.

I try to combine piano lessons with some music theory so that my students will begin to have an understanding of music and their instrument.

I love teaching you how to play your favourite songs and even write your own music.

About Claire

2 decades of playing experience, I studied classical violin growing up and began teaching my first student at the age of 16 - I have been teaching violin to students of all ages for over 10 years of all levels and styles.

I completed all the ABRSM exams and earned an ATCL diploma from Trinity College in Classical Violin Performance.

I perform both classical and electric violin, occasionally solo, but more commonly in rock bands, quartets, orchestras and recording sessions all across Asia and America. I am able to perform and teach in varying styles and genres.

In 2013, I moved to Boston to attend Berklee College of Music, where I studied Jazz, bluegrass, gypsy jazz and middle eastern violin.

A multi-instrumentalist, I also play and teach the electric guitar, acoustic guitar and piano.

I also produce and engineer music, recording in

dependent artists and bands based out of Boston.

I presently write and perform in two bands, an indie rock project called Paper Citizen and pop/HipHop group called Mad Yonder.

I teach privately in my studio in Palms, as well as at a music studio in West LA. I also travel to student’s homes.

I love playing music and I always hope to inspire a similar level of interest and enthusiasm with my students by exploring different styles of music - through a combination of learning songs, improvisation/creation and technique.

I work hard to help you achieve your goals and most importantly, get you playing with confidence!

Bgcheck Background Checked


Private Piano Teacher

I teach music from the perspective of a modern musician and a songwriter. I want to make sure you are relaxed and having fun, as well as learning everything you want to learn in these lessons! We will get you playing songs you enjoy, right from the start. The most important thing to me, is for my students to have fun during their lessons, because real learning comes from commitment, and commitment comes much easier when you enjoy what you do.

About Loralee

Loralee began exploring music at a very young age, as part of a musical household. She enrolled in flute lessons at the age of 4, giving her solid roots in music theory and an appreciation for classical music. Her flute lessons later led her to take part in marching band and numerous musical ensembles. Aside from her love of music, 15 years of performing and studying dance led her to discover her joy in teaching when she began to teach creative movement and ballet to young dancers. In college, she began learning guitar and writing music to match a growing passion for songwriting and acoustic folk music. Her musical pursuits led her to join a local alt pop/punk band as a vocalist, and she performed with them in the surrounding area. After graduating with a B.A. at Michigan State University, Loralee began to pursue a career as a solo musici

an, and released a 4 song EP “If You Were a Song”. Now, she has written hundreds of songs and performs her original music in the San Francisco area.

Private Piano Teacher

I believe all the most important musical skills can be developed across all genres. My goal is to develop rhythmic, harmonic, and technical fundamentals that will unlock a wide range of repertoire and help a student play all of their favorite pieces. I like to keep it interesting and encourage playing in many different styles, as well as focusing on listening, improvisation, and writing. This well-rounded approach helped me develop as a young musician and I hope to bring that to my students as well!

About Christopher

I'm originally from Columbus and started out on piano when I was 8. I also sing and play trumpet and euphonium, and have dabbled in guitar and bass as well. I particularly enjoy writing and arranging, and I studied composition at University of Miami. I have a passion for teaching and the bulk of my experience actually comes in SAT, ACT, and math tutoring. I believe a musical education enhances those subject areas (and vice versa) and I take the same approach of finding an individualized method to help my student meet their goals. Outside of music and teaching, I enjoy running, tennis and cooking.

I teach the basics: scales, sight reading, and note recognition. It all ties into theory, so the student will be getting a two for one. Learning piano is how many people begin to appreciate their love for music.

About Sydney

I am currently working on my undergraduate at Palm Beach Atlantic University for Vocal Performance--specializing in opera. I started performing and studying musical theatre when I was five years old, and in High School, I was a member of the Houston Grand Opera High School Voices Studio. I have been in countless choirs, opera scenes, and musical theatre productions. Since being in college, I have taken diction, language, and vocal literature courses.

My students can expect to improve their vocal and piano techniques every week and maintain their progress. I am interested in helping my students prepare for roles, school shows, competitions, or to have fun.​

"She gets it!

Quick background: I was classically trained for about 7 years in piano, starting when I was around 9. My teacher was great, and did an aweso
me job of driving the fundamentals.

Fast forward to more recently: Having not taken lessons for 15+ years (I had continued playing and learning...just without a teacher), I decided I wanted to pursue a bit more jazz and theory. I went back to my childhood teacher, who very honestly told me that jazz was not his forte. I took a few months of lessons with him, which helped to get me back into the swing of things, but I was really interested in jazz.

I found Erica on takelessons, and she was truly amazing! If you're looking for a teacher who is always "by the book", this isn't her. While I'm sure she can do that, she thrives in allowing you to be a musician. Her understanding of complex time signatures is great, and she really helps to chunk things up into manageable pieces.

Some of her greatest strengths, from the student's perspective, are her patience, friendly demeanor, STRONG understanding of music theory (she's a composer at heart, and I've no doubt that she's great at it), broad knowledge of music, from composers to artists, and her ability to help you learn to improvise. If I wanted to play different notes than what was on the page, within reason of course, that was ok. Having come from a classical background, that was quite refreshing.

I was always able to look forward to learning something new at my lessons; even her book recommendations have been excellent.

I'd say, because of her patience, she's a perfect teacher for adults and children alike. You really can't go wrong with Erica!"

How to Improve Sight Reading Skills on the Piano

By Suzy S.

If you really want to advance your piano playing, mastering the art of sight reading can take you far. But if you're struggling, don't worry. Although some people have a more natural ability to pick up a piece of music and play it sight unseen, the good news is that sight reading is a skill you can improve upon with practice--and even teach yourself from scratch. In fact, there are basic things you can do every day that will improve your dexterity and translate to your piano skills. Try t …
