I specialize in teaching how to play piano by ear! I can teach you the system that all professional musicians use when it comes to learning songs.

Judy Pickerill Piano Lessons

Judy Pickerill Piano Lessons

A 10-year-old male pianist has moved to stay with a grandmother because of changes in his family life. . He lives in the Parkway School District in St..Louis County, Missouri.

At that institution I was a James Scholar, Mortar Board recipient and, editor of the Daily Illini..

Private Piano Lessons

Private Piano Lessons

Very simply put, I LOVE teaching! I especially love teaching piano to all ages and interest levels. I believe in music as a supreme gift for enhancing relaxation and uplifting the spirit. Students gain self-confidence, poise, and grace. Knowing how to play the piano opens many doors socially, too. Underlying those benefits are additional, life-long tools gained from the study of piano. Studies have shown that grade school students who studied piano for three years scored higher than their peers on spatial and cognitive test. They are better prepared academically and perform much better in school. Music students also have an easier tim ... View Profile

Brian's Piano Lessons

Brian's Piano Lessons

I have been playing and teaching professionally for 20 years. I am very patient with beginners and have the requisite skills and experience to teach advanced students in many idioms such as classical, jazz, and various popular styles. There is no set system for teaching as I approach it on an individual basis. I do not offer group lessons because I feel the best results are achieved one on one and in a hands on manner. I have studied jazz and classical piano at a high level and and have performed both at a high level over my career. ... View Profile

Hello, I'm Christine Eunyoung Lee (Just call me, Christine!). I had a chance to learn piano when I was 6 years old to be ready to play the piano in the church I went. Since that time, I spent a lot of time with piano. Even though I stop having piano lesson after 7 years to focus on my academic work (my parent's wish), I did not stop practicing the piano and majored in music education to become a music educator. After I graduated the college, I got the certification for teaching music in secondary school (2006). In 2010, I came in U.S to study music therapy. After I completed all required English classes, I started to learn music therapy at ... View Profile

Dickheads Guitar Lessons

Dickheads Guitar Lessons

I teach how to improvise in the genres of blues, rock, jazz and R&B. I work best with people that have some traditional piano training. I'll help you move away from written music and noddle around on a keyboard or piano. We discover how anyone can improv alone or in a group ensemble. This is not a system that requires sight reading. Would you like to do open mics, write songs, or understand what is going on when you see a musician on stage? It is not a mystery reserved for a few 'naturally gifted' musicians. There is a form underlying all pop music, and it can be taught. I've been a manager in the piano business for over thirty years. I'v ... View Profile

St Louis Piano Lessons

(29 reviews)

A piano is a musical instrument that produces sounds by the simple tapping of hammers on the metallic wires within it - just as you tap keys on the keyboard. It is harmonious to the ear but very complex to learn. Do you want to learn how to play piano? Then there are teachers in St. Louis, MO that can handle you efficiently by giving lessons. Before you go on to look for a teacher, there are things you have to consider, and they are as follows;

Who is a Good Teacher?

Here is what you really need to do in order to get a good piano teacher in St. Louis, MO.

A good teacher should have experience in piano playing for at least one or years. As a matter of fact, a good teacher must have played in both informal and formal occasions, owing to the fact that you cannot claim you are good without having played before a large audience or congregation. Most times, to get a good teacher requires you hiring a college musician as they have learned to play professionally and are always exposed to playing it often. However, you can ascertain the experience of a piano teacher by making a thorough inquiry on the performance of their past students and common weaknesses observed in them owing to the fact that no player is absolutely perfect. Also, you can ask the teacher to show some skills by playing a little.

In everything you do that involves cash, you should be able to check the cost before diving into it. Although, this is the last question you should ask after you have seen a teacher, but you should have two or more good teachers in mind to be able to have a proper idea on the cost of the lesson. Remember, getting a good teacher is one thing and the cost of the lessons is another. The cost of service can be low, but the cost of transportation can increase the total cost of the service. Some teachers collect less pay per lesson but operate from a far place which may even make their training costs increase, whereas others collect low pay but operate within St. Louis, MO.

As a matter of fact, no matter how good your neighbor may be on a piano keyboard, it does not make him a professional. Of course, you should know that your neighbor teaching you how to play piano may be quite cheaper than getting the same from a qualified teacher. Though, a professional teacher may charge higher, you can be sure of engaging a professional, knowledgeable on the subject. It may also interest you to know that a professional teacher will add other values to the teaching such as career counselling, coaching, mentoring, psychology, advice and many others values. Thus, when considering the cost of learning piano, also put into consideration other values you may acquire in the process of learning from an expert.
