Jamie Del Priore
About this pro
It's been a privilege to have taken lessons under Jamie. I have had 3-4 piano teachers so far - and she's been the best among them - in my humble opinion. She's a very competent , understanding, knowledgeable and a patient teacher. I really admire her command over the piano , her way of interpreting musical pieces and also the way she tries to help a student to understand a piece. Each day I wish that I had some more time to stay back in the US - and be able to continue my piano lessons under her. Thank you Jamie - may God bless you!!! Regards AnandNov 26, 2011
We feel lucky to have her as my kid's first piano teacher. She is very professional and very good at working with kids. She teaches musicianship, not just piano techniques. My son is in first grade and he loves Jamie's piano lessons. I would definitely recommend her to other kids.Nov 17, 2011
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?There is no guarantee that a pianist who is an outstanding performer is also an outstanding teacher. Ask a potential teacher about their educational background, years of experience and teaching style. Also, ask what elements are provided in the lesson. There should be multiple answers to this question because there is an inter-relationship between various aspects of musical training. These include: technique--learning how to use the body efficiently to "get around the keyboard;" music theory--understanding how music is put together (composition) in order to understand and recognize patterns; sight-reading--developing the ability to read and perform music one has not previously seen and repertoire--the styles and types of pieces. These elements are all crucial and enhance overall learning experience.
- What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?I love getting transfer students because they have experiences with other teachers. These students have a greater appreciation and recognition between a good, great or outstanding teacher.
