Lindsey R.

Hanover, PA

Whether you have never learned to read music or have had several years of lessons, lessons will be tailored to your needs and goals.

About Lindsey

**THE STUDIO IS CURRENTLY BOOKED TO CAPACITY FOR FRIDAYS, AND I AM NOT ACCEPTING ANY MORE STUDENTS AT THIS TIME. PLEASE USE THE ASK-A-QUESTION FEATURE TO FIND OUT IF I EXPECT ANY OPENINGS IN THE NEAR FUTURE 3/24/15**

Join me for piano lessons in my home on Fridays on a baby grand piano! There is seating inside and outside, and there is plenty of on-street parking. There are also four friendly cats who enjoy listening during lessons!

What you will need:

An instrument to practice on - either an acoustic piano or a keyboard with weighted keys at home. **Please do not schedule lesso
ns unless you have an instrument.**

Sheet music - students can purchase it through me or from a store or online. We can talk about what kinds of music you like to play or want to learn to play once you sign up for lessons.

Usually for either a beginner adult or child, I recommend the Alfred piano series, along with a technique book to strengthen and limber up the fingers, and a fun piece ... something the student specifically wants to learn or be challenged with.

FAQs:

How often are lessons?
Once a week for half an hour is ideal, especially for beginners.

How often will I have to practice?
For 6 and 7 year olds, generally 20 minutes a day, 5 days a week. For everyone else, at least a half an hour a day will give you the most progress!

What do you specialize in?
My strongest abilities are in classical music, because that is what I have the most experience in, but I can also teach the fundamentals of playing pop and rock music, and good performance, accompaniment, and practice habits.

What happens if I can't come to my scheduled lesson?
Email me, text me, call me, or cancel the lesson through your TakeLessons profile. TakeLessons will notify me immediately. Your payment will then be applied to the following scheduled lesson.
If you do not notify me, then I will mark the lesson as "missed" instead of "canceled" and you will still be charged for it.
As long as you're coming to most lessons and not missing too many, a canceled lesson here or there with notice is not a problem.

What happens if I need to discontinue lessons but already paid for the lessons?
Contact TakeLessons and they will handle that for you.

I am happy to share my experience as a very satisfied piano student of Lindsey's! She is so patient and helpful while I'm learning. With her level of skill, she is teaching me more than just notes, like my form, timing and so much more. She uses a variety of music which keeps me interested and challenged. I highly recommend Lindsey as a teacher to both young, not so young, beginner or some skill as she will make all ages and levels feel at ease while they will truly be taught to play the piano! An awesome teacher!

Dr. Jonathan G.

Jarrettsville, MD

I teach all levels, ages, and styles, though my training has been in the Western-Classical tradition.

About Dr. Jonathan

Jonathan began his musical studies at age 7, after falling in love with his first classical music cassette tape given to him the prior year. Jonathan trained as a pianist throughout his childhood, and studied with the venerated Harvey Wedeen at Temple University in Philadelphia through middle and high school. He made his orchestral debut as soloist with the Lancaster Symphony Orchestra at age 15, after winning their instrumental competition. Continuing his piano studies into college, where piano was his primary instrument, he completed a bachelors in music at the Eastman School of Music. Durin
g these college years, he played regular outreach concerts as part of a chamber group for a myriad of organizations. He has given solo recitals, accompanied other musicians, and played in chamber groups. He now holds a doctorate in music from the University of Maryland at College Park.

During high school, Jonathan became fascinated by writing his own music, and now holds three degrees from preeminent schools in the field of music composition. His music has been performed by numerous ensembles and musicians, including the Kronos Quartet, Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, Eastman Musica Nova, and Knox-Galesburg Symphony. He was recently a featured guest composer at the Bowling Green State University New Music and Art Festival. His piece for stings, Nightscape, has been a particular audience favorite and performed by orchestras across the US. Jonathan also enjoys doing collaborative and multimedia projects with local choreographers, videographers, and musicians.

As a teacher, Jonathan is exceptionally patient, always engaged with his students’ progress, and actively listens to what his students want from their lessons and in helping them decide on the music they want to play. He takes a very practical and holistic approach to teaching keyboard, and always makes sure to discover the fun in learning. Jonathan strongly believes that all students, no matter where one is in life, possess the ability to achieve success in their lessons – and that his job is to guide them to unlock and discover their potential, to inspire their curiosity, and to help them advance their musical skills on their chosen instrument. Jonathan has also taught courses in theory, aural skills, sight-singing, and composition at the University of Maryland and Ball State University. He has studied music pedagogy, and actively pursues researching about new methods and developments on the learning process.

Grace I.

Honeoye Falls, NY

I've been teaching piano lessons for about a year and a half with younger students, and I have taken seven years of lessons. With my students, I like to focus on keeping them interested in the instrument by making lessons equally fun and focused. I am familiar with a variety of different lesson book series, and can provide beginner books as needed. It is best that your child have access to a piano or keyboard, and I have a metronome I can bing along. I look forward to working with you!

About Grace

I have 5-10 years of experience in the fields which I teach.

Katelyn C.

Mc Sherrystown, PA

My lessons follow a basic course including piano technique, theory, and playing. Each lesson includes a variety of hands-on, written, and aural activities. I'm always open for questions and anything you may want to learn. At the end of the lesson, I want to make sure you learned something, and had fun doing it!

About Katelyn

Hi, I'm Katelyn! I first became interested in piano about 14 years ago, when I was listening to a song on the radio and just knew that the piano was the instrument for me. Fast forward to the present, and I've taken lessons, master classes, and exams through Trinity College all to indulge my interest in piano and music. It makes me so happy to encourage that love of music in my students. Learning piano is so much more than just dull drills! My aim is to make piano and classical music fun, and for the past 2 years, I've been doing just that! My goal is to share that fun with even more students.
I'm looking for beginner students of various ages who are also enthusiastic about piano. Together, let's make music!
