Piano Lessons at My Piano Studio

Music lessons are a practical way to enrich the lives of children and adults alike. One does not necessarily need to play an instrument to enjoy music. However, a hands-on approach to music making can bring great enjoyment and intellectual stimulation. It requires time and financial commitments and investments that results in greater concentration, fine motor function, coordination, and other cognitive benefits for the student. And yes, there are many other instruments that provide similar experiences. However, the piano is one of the most comprehensive instruments in terms of music making. It allows for melody and harmony, and provides a range just shy of a full orchestra. When mastered, one can produce beautiful melodies, nuances, and subtleties, as well as great power in its sound.

 

Being classically trained, I stress music literacy and technique, including note-reading, proper posture and fingering, consistent practice, along with aural skills and theoretical knowledge. It is with this comprehensive approach that I believe the student can completely immerse and understand the music that s/he is playing.

 

Performances and competitions are encouraged for students to participate in but are not required. These are opportunities for students to share in his/her polished work much like an artist shares his/her completed artwork.

Lessons are open to all interested students. I have over 25 years of experience teaching students ages 5 and older, including adults and seniors.
