    I am a string specialist. That means I teach and play violin, viola, cello, double bass, guitar, bass guitar, mandolin, ukulele and piano. I have been studying music since the age of 9 years. I began learning to play the flute through the public school music program. I continued playing in school bands and in 1968 I wanted to learn to play the guitar, like the Beatles! In high school I taught myself to play classical guitar by playing through some music books with guitar fingerings. When I was 16 years old I became interested in learning to play the piano and began with chords on the lef

    I have 30 years experience teaching piano to all ages (about 6 to adult), and I enjoy teaching beginners as much as I do the most advanced players. I'm known for my patience, and I genuinely love what I do. I encourage students to ask questions and think about music and try things and not be afraid to make mistakes(!). All students learn the fundamental skills that will serve them in whatever style of music they play, and as they progress, some focus more on classical music, some popular, or jazz, or any combination. I'm classically trained, with a Doctor of Musical Arts degree, but I'm well v

  • Applegate Music Studio

    Applegate Music Studio

    Phoenix, AZ · Terry Smith

    Most piano instruction requires that a student must learn how to read music before being able to play. After many years of teaching, I've found that this is not a natural way to learn. Since music is a language, I pattern my teaching to learning language, that is playing great songs immediately as we learn to read music notation separately. These two learning paths come together after a few months when the student is ready. The result is that the student learns faster and is much more motivated because they play great songs right away. I use many approaches to acheive this learning experienc

    Beginnings In Music - A Good Beginning Never Ends.

    I love Music! My family has always incorporated music into our lives. Some of my earliest memories are being danced around in my Mom’s arms and listening to her sing. I began formal lessons on the Piano when I was 7 years old and have had over 18 years of private lessons and have played professionally. Growing up also I sang in the Church Choirs, played on Hand Bells, and explored the Flute. I spent a formal year each on Trumpet, Drums and Harpsichord and am currently working on learning Zither, Auto-harp, Dulcimer, and Soprano & Alto Recorders, and sometimes the guitar (when I have a ch

4 Helpful Tips for Choosing a Piano Teacher in Scottsdale, AZ

One of the best ways to learn to play the piano is by signing up for piano lessons. Piano lessons afford aspiring pianists a dedicated instructor who can offer a proven learning plan, monitor progress and help correct students' mistakes as they go. If you're planning to take piano lessons, Lessons.com has an outstanding list of teachers in the Scottsdale area who can provide you instruction. However, the process of narrowing down teachers and choosing the right one may feel overwhelming. So, anyone interested in signing up for piano lessons should check out the list below. It contains 4 helpful tips to ensure that you end up with the instructor that is just right for you.

1. Consider teaching style.
There are many different styles when it comes to teaching piano. Some teachers follow the Suzuki method, while others use Faber & Faber. Some teachers teach group lessons, while others prefer individual private sessions with students. Consider what type of instruction style feels best for you, then choose a teacher that offers lessons or classes that align.

2. Choose a teacher in a convenient location.
Piano lessons happen weekly, and it is thus important to consider convenience when selecting a teacher. For example, if you live in Copper Square, you don't want to sign up for lessons near North Mountain. You'll want to choose a teacher that is easy to get to, in order to ensure you arrive on time (and don't end up cancelling) every week.

3. Inquire about additional benefits.
Some piano teachers simply teach their students how to play. On the other hand, some piano teachers offer benefits -- like membership in the PMTA piano ensemble, recitals at ASU's Katzin Concert Hall, or visits to the Musical Instrument Museum. Think about whether you want piano lessons to simply strengthen a skill, or whether you want it to be a more well-rounded or social experience. Choose a teacher that ensures you'll get the complete experience that you are looking for with piano lessons or classes.

4. Know what's expected of you.
Piano lessons do not just entail the time you spend sitting with your piano teacher. Learning piano also requires a good deal of study and practice time on your own. So, before you sign up with a teacher, ask him or her what will be expected of you. You don't want to commit to something that you can't actually fit in your schedule, so asking a teacher beforehand what you'll need to give is the best way to be fair to both you and them.
