Learn piano fast from an expert teacher with 40+ years experience
Hear yourself play with a recorded band your fist week of lessons. Let the fun begin. Learn to play by ear, by touch with your eyes closed, and transpose and improvise from the start - not years later. Play games and activities to enhance your understanding of the musical concepts, especially when it comes to rhythm. Play your own "made up" melodies and I'll write them on the staff for you, (in the beginning) and together we'll configure the rhythm pattern using flashcards. Learning piano has never been more fun! Now, what do we do with your "made up" melodies; otherwise known as composing music? Let's record them! What about chordal patterns and piano technique? You'll be learning it all while having fun. You won't even realize how much you're learning until after the laughter and enjoyment settles a bit. But not for long. I've worked with ages 6-72. Let's get things rolling. I'll see you in class! Want to play your favorite songs? Interested in learning to write and record your own music? I will help you build a solid foundation of music theory and technique while tailoring to your personal tastes and goals. Part of my lesson plan involves me recording, mixing and producing a song that you eventually compose. Shoot me a message to see if we're a good match!
About Rebecca A.

I started piano lessons at age 9 and recorded a '45 at age 11 and my first album at age 12. From there I recorded 2 more albums and then recordings evolved into cassettes, CDs and finally MP3s. I love the ease of recording a quick summation of a song idea, melody line and/or lyrics on an MP3 and come back later to create the masterpiece. Technology today affords a greater advantage for young and older students. During my course of history in music I've composed songs, performed before crowds ranging in attendance of 15 to 5000. I've also had solo drama parts in musicals. I remember once, my lapel mic battery died and I had to project to the back of the balcony to be heard over a pit orchestra in a 1500 seat auditorium. Training in vocal projection afforded me success in that moment with no time to panic. From there I traveled around the United States and overseas to England, Ireland, Germany, Russia, India and Peru. I love spending time with all people and getting to know their hearts and love for music. Today, I teach private students 3 days per week online and in person. I also teach ages Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st - 6th grade music at a local private school 3 days per week. We've just casted our "all school" musical to be presented next February, 2022. How exciting for all! Now we need to get your fun rolling along swiftly. Voice students will become confident as we discover your unique sound from your chest voice, head voice and, of course, the "mix". Fall in love with your sound in a matter of weeks, not years. Joyful vocal games, ear training, music illiteracy (theory training) and spectacular repertoires in our times together will have you laughing and learning simultaneously. Don't delay. Sign Up TODAY! Piano students of all ages will not believe how quickly the lessons go, much less the amount of learning they are doing through games and activities. Let's get your music reading skills, composing, recording, playing by ear, by touch and with great expression going. Not a minute to waste. Your music will impact the future of our world.
