I take each student and evaluate them. How much natural talent they have and then design a customized lesson plan designed to bring that student along. I teach the musical alphabet forward and backwords. Teach half step whole step ear training recognition. Teach how to form half and whole steps into major and minor scale and chord construction as well as chord inversions.
Every person learns differently. My goal is to teach based on the individual's preference. I do believe that repetition is the mother of skill. I encourage my students to spend a good amount of time practicing as that is the best way to build muscle memory.
As a piano pedagogue, Kalynn's primary goal is to train students Classically and to grow their overall understanding of music. Unlike many instructors, his approach is to teach students how to practice, why different pieces are performed with certain nuances, and how to approach all the different building blocks that go into each piece.
I've never taught music lessons before, so it's gonna be pretty up in the air how things roll. Gonna base my teaching methodology upon the student and their interests or needs, a rigid teaching plan is just asking fate or God for trouble.
At first I will set up a basic structure for student, and then I will estimate their learning speed to change plan. My teaching method depends on different aspects to adjust, including what method book they need to use , what gradient are they in, what learning speed they have and so on. When they achieve a special level, I will find some performance chance to motivate them.
I approach each lesson based on the needs and desires of the student. I am experienced with working with beginners as well as advance students. I prefer to show you how to play it first and then explain the theory after.
I teach students as young as 5 to adult students of varying levels. I emphasize classical training, but I also have students learn composition, popular music, and beginning jazz based on what they're interested in. My philosophy is that piano lessons are for everyone, whether they want to be professionals or learn just for fun.
I am a seasoned musician in the art of making music. I teach beginner and intermediate levels because I like to work with those who have no bad habits in music it’s easier to learn than unlearn bad playing habits. My approach is simple. I go where the music takes us. Your individuality will determine your path in the music.
intermediate-advanced pianist hoping to share his knowledge with beginners and develop some helpful skills in the process. lessons will be goal oriented, with a main focus on transitioning from learning new concepts to applying those concepts as quickly as possible. As a member of a piano enthusiast club, i spent a lot of time helping fellow members to hone their skills and vice versa.
I am currently a Junior in Piano and Harpsichord Performance at Pittsburg State University. The lessons will be structured around how far along, if the student has had lessons before, and tailored to what needs to be taught as well as giving the students pieces to play and figure out how to stylistically play based on skill level.

Hello everyone! My teaching career began in Chicago, Illinois, first teaching privately out of my home, then for the YMCA and other small music schools. I then began teaching private guitar lessons at Northwestern University while completing my masters degree there in classical guitar performance. After graduation I built a large student base at Sherwood at Columbia College Chicago.
Depending on your musical background my lessons usually intel this: 1. Have you play through the song you have been working on 2. I give you helpful criticism, and explain where you messed up or how you can improve 3. Break down the problem areas into small sections and teach you how to conquer them 4.
Using examples either from videos or from myself, I like to practically show students what needs to be done to improve. I push them forward always to never limit themselves but always shoot for the stars. I encourage several practices on the piano or vocally until it becomes second nature, which helps to ensure mastery of the skill.
My teaching methods are geared towards the student or group I am teaching, meaning that I will go the extra mile to make sure that you understand what the objective is. I have various methods that were thought to me upon earning my degree in music. My goal as a teacher is to make sure that the student is feeling like they are making progress no matter how small or how big the goal is set.
I teach each individual student uniquely based on his/her needs and goals. I emphasize a strong theory base to help students grow as musicians. I help each student become his/her best musician and provide support for each student along his/her educational journey. Positivity and hard work are the basis of my teaching method.
When it comes to music, I strongly believe that the student should love the music that is listening, practicing and performing. This way, they can focus and learn the music by heart and not just memory. Music is another language, another way to express words and thoughts, thus the musician should be able to relate, understand and communicate through music.
I've been teaching private lessons for over ten years to all ages and skill levels. As an instructor, I am passionate about practice techniques and music theory, though not at all overbearing. Whether you’re just beginning or feeling over-practiced and in a rut, I think lessons should always be both engaging and fun.
There is a clear influence of Russian methods on The Cuban School of Piano Performance. The key element in my method for developing the artist within the student is appreciating each student's background and approach to music. With enough practice, we can rich very high levels of realization.
My approach to tutoring focuses on praising achievements, being efficient in time management to get the most work done, and leaving the student feeling confident that whatever we haven't done together they will be able to accomplish effectively on their own! The more self-sufficient they feel, the more I've done my job and we can move on to more advanced work.
Wrong notes can still produce music -- listen to Artur Schnabel. It is more important to find your own voice which is distinctive and unique. Sight reading is more important than practicing or memorization. Find your way.
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.
With beginners I work with most of the main stream method books: Faber & Faber, A Dozen Day, Flash Cards; I complement the repertoire with traditional piano repertoire adjusted to the level of the student. I work with complementary material and exercises and adapt them to the cognitive level of the student. I also have a lot of experience teaching high level performers.
I would like to teach beginner-intermediate piano. I would like to help kids learn how to read music and successfully play pieces on the piano. I truly enjoy working with kids and piano was so meaningful to me through out my life and I would love to share my passion with others! I like to use both visual aids and hands- on methods to help kids truly understand music and the instrument.
My method is to assess, fill in gaps, and build on what they already know. I cater my teaching style to different learning styles, as not every child has the same sensibilities in music. I see what works for each kid, and alter it until it works.
My teaching method is very much tailored to the student. I teach beginner and intermediate piano and tutor music theory. I have a classical training background, but also really enjoy teaching how to read and play music from a chord chart or lead sheet. I typically get an idea of where my students are starting from and what they want to learn and go from there.
My teaching method is different for every student to cater to their special needs. I strongly believe in musicality and feeling the musical, and then technique is built based upon that.
I approach each concept by breaking it down into its smallest components, emphasizing the practical applications of each step before moving on. Students can expect a solid foundation in both theory and technique. I offer lessons in both classical and jazz piano. I also teach music theory and ear training.
I have worked with students from special education to advanced students grades K-12 grades since 1995. I teach individually and in groups according to the students' needs, wants, and values. I strive to learn each student's and their parents' trust and respect initially as this sets the stage for a good relationship.

Thousands of teachers 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.
