I approach each client with an openness to teach what it is they want. I know that learning any instrument requires thousands of hours of concentrated work and a ton of self-motivation and, in my experience, students that aren't interested in the music won't have that motivation.
The key to being a successful teacher is understanding your students learning styles and adjusting your methods to best suite their needs. With this in mind, I tailor each lesson for individual students by understanding their goals, determining their level, selecting appropriate repertoire.
I like to base my classes on what my students want to learn. I like to start your first lesson by listening to you sing and seeing what I think you can benefit from working on, and then also going over your own musical goals and dreams. Then I go over what you hope to gain from these lessons.
I am currently a junior at Crown College. I have taught piano for about two years now, primarily with beginner and intermediate students.
I'm a self taught pianist, and became very skilled in a short amount of time. I play various instruments, and I'm only in high school. My method of teaching would be to start with basic music theory, and teach to play, not just other people's piece, but to compose. Composition is something seeming to fall out classical piano, as repertoire is mainly played now.
I have been teaching for over 25 years. I have taught in schools and privately. I teach technique and rudiments for solid playing while also teaching theory and sight reading.
Everyone has unique needs and desires regarding an education in music. That is why I teach each student individually to help them achieve their goals. Just because I don't have a set methodology, however, doesn't mean that I teach chaotically. I balance the need for order and discipline with freedom of musical expression.
I was born in a musician family. My parents are opera singers for 30 years. Since I was 6 I studied music in conservatory. After I graduated from university i studied my second major which is Early Childhood Education. My students are starts playing and reading perfectly in their first 3 months.
I firmly believe that everyone is their own best teacher. Music is a beautiful subject and should not be approached lightly. By teaching you music I will help you discover what your strengths are and allow those to guide you in establishing your own sense of rhythm (pun intended...
Every student is different so I approach each student uniquely based on their level and personality. I do believe however that certain fundamentals are important to master; a student must have a solid understanding of piano technique; otherwise it is possible to sustain injury while playing.
I teach up to graduate level music theory to anyone who wants to learn. I believe that everyone learns and understands music differently. I strive to fit my method of teaching best to the learning style of my student. I emphasize applied, hands-on learning.
I teach on an individualized basis. Each student learns differently and at their own pace. Thus, needing a personalized approach. I specialize and have written my own method on learning chording and believe all piano students should learn both this and notation in order to be able to apply their skills to a variety of musical genres and settings.
I structure my lessons based on the student’s knowledge entering the course, and account for their learning style before implementing one into the lessons. I am here to help them grow, not force them to be musical robots. I consider musical theory knowledge very useful, and will teach that simultaneously with technical abilities.
My method is teaching in order to demonize a subject. From harmony to chain effects in a DAW. It's going to depend on what subject the student is into.
I give lessons to all ages and I always seek to understand the method of instruction that works best depending on the student. Part of my work requires me to be a very good listener and to be patient with my students at all times.
Teaching method depends on age and desire of student. With children, note-reading and simple tunes. With adults, chords and type of music they desire. Can teach with lead sheet words and chords or add notes to chords for full sound.
WHAT DO WE DO? I try hard to present students with a solid, broad based approach with an emphasis on understanding the fundamentals of musical comprehension, music reading, musical memory, and ear development. These are essential to playing and enjoyment of any instrument! To this end we cover theory, music history, performance, technique and practical application.
Depends on the students and their proficiency level on the piano. I teach and cover theory, sight reading, technique, exercises, and how to approach each genre of music on the piano. I provide all the music materials (books, mp3's, and backing tracks).
My teaching method focuses on detail technique, such as how to press correctly and make a good sound on keyboards. Make sure students doing well each step and play successfully. I am a positive and patient person.
Open to all ages and experience levels, I spend my time building rapport and adapt to each and every student in order to understand their abilities, goals and potential. My philosophy lies in promoting personal growth and pushing boundaries comfortably so that students can be the best version of themselves.
Learning to sight read fluently is the foundation. I teach through the Bastien curriculum and patiently guide the student through the basics of classic music notation, building on each concept week by week. If the student is dedicated to consistent practice, there is no limit to the excellence they can achieve.
Individualized lesson plans are created for each student based upon age, level, and background. Whether a complete beginner or an advanced pianist, students will learn to play the piano music they’ve always dreamed of! They will learn musical notation, technical skills, and music theory.
My typical process for working with a student includes teaching music fundamentals: Hand Position, Scales (various types), proper basic technique (playing with correct posture, wrist motions, arm relaxation). From the first lesson I develop skills in music theory and train in playing with a steady beat and an accurate rhythm.
I like to assign no more than three pieces. I believe in quality, not quantity. I also supplement with rote pieces to make the assignments more interesting and varied. I try to make the lessons fun and entertaining, which maintaining a level of challenge.
Singing: By combining many disciplines (including my KRI certification in kundalini yoga), I have developed my vocal technique, "Yoga for the Voice," which gives each student a personalized vocal tune up each time you sing.
Philosophy of Teaching Teaching well requires knowledge and expertise; knowledge and expertise are gained through research and execution. Adequate and reliable research/investigation requires thoughtful and methodical technique. These can lead to excellence in performance or execution, which can lead to excellence in instruction and to further research.
My students are taught through method books until a level 3 is reached and then may continue on either a classical or recreational pathway. Music theory is included in lessons as are exercises and scale work. Sightreading and ear-training skills are also developed. I am not a competition teacher, although performance is encouraged and many opportunities are provided on an optional basis.
My lesson plans are geared toward the individual interests of each student. However, each student will learn from me how to play music with and without sheet music. Often sheet music can be unavailable to the student, and show I give them the tools to play music by ear.

I am a recent college graduate with a passion for music. I have 13 years experience and have accompanied many choirs, including one at the Kentucky Center for the Arts. I love to teach in fun, simple ways.

Thousands of tutors can teach you piano. Find private lessons closest to you.
It's truly fascinating how chords and scales come together to produce a beautiful melody. By learning to play the piano, you can play your favorite songs anytime you feel like. What's more, the longer you practice, the better you get. But, how to get started? Three words: private piano lessons. Piano is not something you can learn in a classroom. Learning this craft requires personal attention, wherein, the piano teacher is able to give you one-on-one lessons, judge your capabilities, and go about the teaching according to your pace and grasping power. Piano teachers create a specific set of lessons for each of their students, so that the students learn all the bits and nuances, and ultimately, master the craft.
Apart from piano, there are a variety of other musical instruments you can learn through private tutoring, such as the flute, trumpet, trombone, and even Djing. Many private tutors teach multiple instruments; a skilled flute or trombone tutor is capable of giving Djing lessons too. Similarly, you can learn to play a variety of woodwind instruments from transverse flute teachers who're learned flutists. By learning to play multiple instruments, you can really carve your niche as a successful artist in the world of music.
Our professors write articles about their subjects to help you better understand the material.
