We have been with Scott for over a year now and have nothing but wonderful things to say about his teaching. He is very dedicated and teaches very patiently. He is very adjusting (with his schedule) and has been great to work with.Sep 28, 2012
I've been taking piano lessons from Scott for about 10 months now. I am an adult beginner, and Scott has been outstanding in working with me at my skill level, engaging me with interesting pieces, and understanding my limitations and demands on my time. He's brought me patiently to a point where I now feel that I can actually play the piano! Scott also is currently teaching my 9-year old daughter, and he works equally well with her at her more advanced piano level and younger age.Aug 24, 2012
I am an adult learner and have been taking lessions with Scott for over a year. He does a great job in both technique training as well as finding music that is interesting and fun for me to play. Teaching is geared toward gradually more challenging pieces and technique exercises in order to strengthen skills in reading music and dexterity. He is very patient with his teaching and flexible with scheduling. I would highly recommend the Salt Lake Piano Academy if you are interested in learning to play or strengthening current skills.Aug 16, 2012
Scott has been my daughter, who is ten, piano instructor for the past two years. He has made the experience enjoyable, challenging and fun. She looks forward to her lessons and I am amazed at her developing skill playing the piano. I would highly recommend Scott to anyone looking for piano instruction.Aug 16, 2012
My son started lessons as a beginner with Scott in 2007. My son is now 14 years old and has no interest in stopping his lessons specifically because of Scott. He simply loves his piano lessons! Scott's friendly, encouraging, and confident teaching style is unique and one that allows kids to really learn to love to play. We highly recommend his classes.Aug 13, 2012
- What types of customers have you worked with?Private piano lessons are offered in weekly 30-minute sessions. Generally children 6 and up are accepted for beginning piano, exceptions are made for exceptionally-motivated younger children on an individual basis. Depending on the students goals, 60-minute lessons may be appropriate for older intermediate and advanced students. Transfer students will receive an initial consultation during their first lesson to assess current abilities and discuss what they would like to accomplish, establishing expectations for both the teacher and student. The curriculum is customized to meet each students specific goals and needs, but will always include performance of both classical and popular music styles, note-reading, technique, and elements of ear training and music theory.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Excerpted from "A Parent's Guide to Piano Lessons" by James W. Bastien: The piano teacher who has an enthusiasm for music, a liking for children, and a desire to teach can inspire and motivate the student and stimulate his interest and curiosity in music. In this regard, a skilled teacher is one who knows more than the notes; he is an effective communicator who can impart knowledge and cause others to learn. It is well worth the time and effort to find a teacher with these attributes. What elements make a good teacher? Your child will be working with a piano teacher for at least thirty minutes a week for nine months each year (longer, if summer lessons are taken). The piano teacher exerts considerable influence over your child, and you want to make sure the association is pleasant and beneficial. Considering this, you want the *best* teacher for your child, even if the child is a beginner!
