Corina P.  
Piano Instructor
 
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania     Age 29     Female
Specialties:  Classical, Beginners, Improvisation, Pop Music, Composition
"I started playing piano when I was 3 at a classical school.  I loved playing classical music, and still do, but when I got older I wanted to learn to play all the songs I loved singing along to on the radio.  None of the private instructors I went to listened to me or knew how to help me find what I was looking for.  It was then I learned as a teacher to listen to what kids are saying about what types of music they love, let them tell us what moves them, and use that song to communicate to them!  I believe there is something to be learned from each genre but even kids have something to add to their education.  I ask even my youngest students even simple questions about songs or what they like to do because it tells me about how to best teach them or how to best reach them!  I am a songwriter and professional musician and instructor because I love mentoring creativity."
