Hamilton Music Studio
About this pro
Joyce is very professional and has been most accommodating of my scheduling needs. I highly recommend her. I am an adult student returning to the piano after many years. I really enjoy working with Joyce.May 19, 2017Verified
Ms. Hamilton is a wonderful piano instructor. My 6 years old son has enjoyed his lessons and has developed a strong music foundation for the past 4 months. She is very patient and caring. Every step of the way, she makes sure that my son understands his lessons and help him succeed. She writes down what he needs to practice at home and follows up with him the next lessons. I'm very pleased that my son has learned his piano in a truely caring and warm environment. I would recommend her to anyone.Mar 5, 2017Verified
Joyce is an amazing piano instructor. My daughter is 4 and has a very short attention span. Joyce is so patient with her, making sure my daughter understands the lesson. My daughter is usually very shy around adults. She is so comfortable around Joyce and looks forward to her piano lesson every week. Joyce is so great that I have started taking piano lessons with her, as well. Highly recommend!Mar 2, 2017
My piano lessons began on December 16, 2016 when I was 58 years old. I had never played a musical instrument in my life and took a leap of faith in this new endeavor. I am completely satisfied with my learning experience. In fact, I feel so fortunate to have met Joyce Hamilton. I was looking for a professional piano teacher who was educated and polished, not simply taking on a hobby. I am pleased with Joyce because she has high standards for me no matter what. I never feel intimidated by her and I always feel comfortable being with her. What I find most wonderful about my piano lessons is that I am not rushed; Joyce is not only about goal setting but also about the progress in the moment. This aspect is far more important to me at this time in my life. Joyce has students of all ages; in fact, my 14 year-old granddaughter just began taking piano lessons from her. One can see crayons and rewards in her studio for the little ones and when I am taking a lesson I record her playing a piece on my smartphone so I may hear the rhythm and see her fingerings during the week when I practice. The most important teaching characteristic that I value from Joyce is her integrity. I want a teacher that is honest with me about my playing. I want to hear the truth about all aspects of my piano playing...positive and negative. Yet she is always kind and supportive when I miss the mark. The reason that I am still learning to play the piano a year later is because of my teacher...because of Joyce. BernadetteMar 3, 2017
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge $30 per hour.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Each student is different which means that I adjust to each unique personality. The first question I ask is "Do you have any previous experience in music?" Whether experienced or not I try to make each student feel comfortable about singing or playing the first time especially if he or she is nervous. Once they are comfortable with me it makes learning much more enjoyable.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Bachelor's degree in music education with emphasis on piano and voice. Worked one year on masters in piano performance at UMKC (Kansas City) Music Conservatory.
