Piano Lessons and Tuning
Learning to love and master music
All levels of piano instruction in classical music with at home lessons by a professional instructor. Lessons with me emphasize enjoyment of the instrument first and building a foundation with technical skills and note reading. Further instruction focuses on classical pieces, sight reading, and hand dexterity on the piano. I am also available for piano tunings! I am located in Somerset, NJ and I am willing to travel generally 15-20 miles for lessons! However if you are further and interested please feel free to contact me to see if I we can make it work!
I have been a private lesson piano teacher since 2016 with several students. I have a Bachelor's degree in music from William Paterson University and an Associates Degree in music from Raritan Valley Community College. I've studied for 10 years in classical piano music. I also have taught swimming for 5 years and I currently coach swimming as well. I love teaching students from the beginning level but sometimes my favorite thing is watching a student taking their passion and then bringing it to the next level. My goal is to show students that hard work and determination does produce good results. Also my strong belief is that while it is better to start learning a skill when you are younger, I also believe it is never too late to learn something if you have the right attitude!
What You Will Learn
Learn to accurately read and play any sheet music notation including music notes, articulations, dynamics, and fingerings.
Learn to play all major and minor scales and arpeggios along with many Hanon related exercises for hand dexterity.
Music Theory and Music History
During lessons the student will learn basic to advanced music theory especially as it to pertains to piano repertoire. Music history will also be taught with information involving different piano composers, periods of classical music, and styles of music.
Students will be required to practice a certain amount of time a week based on their level and age. Determination and hard work are key to strengthening any and every craft. In this area I hope to show students that with hard work they can do anything they want in life!
