I will base my classes in what is most important for the student to be successful. Whatever they need to move along the most efficient. I will move at a pace that is good for them and their learning method.
I believe in a flexible manner of instruction responsive to age, personality, ability, and background of each individual. I have taught students with autistic and minor learning disabilities and have learned to be flexible in terms of methods and materials I use, as well as expectations and goals for each student.
Graduated from Montclair State University. I studied piano privately for 14 years and have been playing for 20 years total. I studied classical and jazz with a world renowned pianist for many years but identify as a contemporary/fly finger player.
Every student is very different and has individual strengths and needs. I believe a student needs strong guidance and clarity, but I like to include my student's taste into my the decision making process. Learning how to play piano is a lot of work. Ultimately, I like the learning process to be as rewarding as the results.
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.
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.
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).
I teach beginners and advanced students of all ages,have experience teaching children with a special needs. My approach to teaching is fun and nurturing,making sure that students have a clear understanding of the fundamental principles of music,while encouraging their own creativity and aural skills.
My teaching method is by sound. So to keep people listening to the nostalgia of music not the earliest forms of it. Which is the best way of learning how to grasp the understanding on how the music should be played by progressions, riffs(hip hop, rock n roll, etc.), chords, and keys. The keys that should be played with the articles of life made verses, choruses of songs.
I was instructed by 6 different teachers from 1973-1983. Starting in 1986 I have taught students ranging in age from 7 to 77 years. My methods are easy to follow including method books to songs that YOU want to learn. 1/2 hr to hour lessons given. Lessons are given at store location in Westerly or my home in South Kingstown.
Do you have a song inside your head that needs to be written down? Are you a composer that could use some guidance? Some non-judgmental mentoring of the music that means something to you? Have you always wished to play piano but ran away from it for the 100th time? Have you found your singing voice? Have you always wished that you could read music? I am happy to help you with any of the above.
I was taught by the iconic late Dr. Isaac B.
Piano lessons provided for all levels, in classical genre. Russian piano method used, however I try to fit the method to the needs of the student. Can find a common language with anyone and make learning piano enjoyable.
My teaching methods are simple; understand sound, feeling and rhythm. Learn the basics, take notes from the past and identify the defining influences accordingly, create a solid musically foundation, know your approach, understand and master technique, develop a unique style, create/express freely and with love.
My approach is very personalized. I realize that every student has a different learning style and wants to accomplish different levels of skills. I can tailor lessons to suit your needs and skill levels whether it's to learn performance and songwriting skills, or to just be able to play for yourself.
I gauge what level the student is and see how he/she learns best. I then devise fun lessons for the students and ensure that the student learns the fundamentals, which I believe provide the foundation for playing any kind of music on the piano.
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.
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 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 think music is well appreciated and well learned when it is taught with passion. I believe that a student needs to enjoy what they are learning, if they are to truly excel in that filed. As a result, I always strive to find areas of music that students and passionate about, and then pursue those ideas, rather than following one strict form of pedagogy.
Developed and presented stimulating lesson plans that covers a wide range of topics and foster music appreciation. Instructed students in the technical aspects of music; conducted rehearsals; put on shows and play at assemblies. Evaluated students’ progress; offered one-on-one or after-school help to ensure each student is able to understand the materials and develop his/her skills.
I myself have had four piano teachers over the course of my life and I have learned various teaching techniques from each of them. Overall, I have taken aspects from all of them to develop my own way of teaching. My teaching method is specialized and differentiated. Every student is different and requires different challenges, focuses, and teaching styles.
My teaching method is focused in developing at the same time technical skills, sights reading, playing chamber music and doing theory exercises. I like to have a different teaching plan for each of my students. Usually after few lessons I can assess what my student needs and how to practice with them to make them a great musician.
I base my lessons on the students skill level. I am self-taught so I understand the need to take things step-by-step until the student masters the topic at hand. I always understand the student's frustration when they don't get something at first because I was that student. However I believe anybody can become a proficient piano player as long as they put in the hard work.
Musicianship requires patients in order for proper development. No matter where you stand as a musician my pedagogue guarantees evolution. I not concerned with the musician you are today, but the musician you will become tomorrow.
I teach music theory, ear training, reading, and techniques. We start by learning scales, intervals, triads, 7th chords, and extensions. We also learn how to read music notation and sight singing. I always begin with the basics in order to build a strong technical foundation to build on.
I believe music should first be relevant and enjoyable. Music is a form of self expression, and although it teaches invaluable skills such as creativity and diligence, it should be first and foremost a form of art. I have taught beginners, advanced students, and many in between, and I love working with all ages.
My method is based on gaining a strong base of music theory. In the future, I pass on the initiative to my student. This also applies to the choice of repertoire and joint creative work. This approach gives good results.
I teach beginning and intermediate piano lessons enabling students to quickly play songs that they love - on the piano or keyboard synthesizer. Lessons given at my Hudson, New Hampshire Studio. One hour lessons covering theory, chording, rhythm, music reading and singing while playing.
Thousands of teachers can teach you synthesizer. Find private lessons closest to you.
