Hello! My name is Paul Covington. My goal at Covington Piano Lessons is to provide quality instruction on piano to various levels of students. I have years of teaching experience with both children and adults. I am currently completing my Instrumental Music Education degree at Marian University. This experience has enabled me many opportunities to instruct students at various grade levels on a variety of instruments, of which piano is my primary personal instrument. I will graduate in the fall of 2019. I was the first keyboard player for the Marian University marching band the last two years, in addition to concert band during the spring semesters. I am a classically trained pianist, but have also played a variety of styles, including: jazz, popular music, gospel, and musicals. My emphasis is in classical music, however. I have performed in many musicals, churches, bands, and other accompaniant jobs throughout my life. I also perform solo quite frequently. I am skilled at reading music and understanding theory/history of music, which enables me to improvise, use my ear, and understand, structurally the music I am playing. I have played piano for over 25 years and truly love performing and making music. I look forward to serving the Indianapolis area and to impart a joy of making music to my students.
I greatly enjoy seeing people develop their skills as musicians. As a consequence of this, I can see their joy when my students perfect their craft and produce beautiful music. Training of musical ability contributes to brain development in children, in addition to the emotional/psychological benefits of the music itself. I love to be a part of this important aspect of education.
He is good.
He is very flexible with the time we need and has been really good so far with teaching my daughter how to play piano.
