Again, I am very confident in my teaching skills. I love so many genres of music that its hard to say where my best talents lie. But no matter what the style, I will say one thing that I have always been strict about is proper technique and rhythm. I feel like timing is something that a lot of musicians lack and often have to learn the hard way later on. I try to incorporate it soon after and onward after a beginner's first lessons.

I am primarily a musical theatre pianist, so that is my forte. Fortunately, that encompasses many styles and requires knowledge of different playing methods. I also play and instruct classical, and many styles of jazz.

Tuning Up:

Remember when that insensitive band teacher told you you’re not musical?
Forget it—we are all wired for music. If you can get beyond those self-doubts
and readjust some preconceived notions about how to play and listen to music,
you can touch a medium that can touch you back in powerfully moving ways.

By Allan Richter

From October, 2008

If you feel musically inadequate, your personal history probably tells the story. “Band” was the last elective you ever considered in school. And when it’s time for group singing at religious services, you mouth the words, cower in the pew and wish for the confines of a shower stall.

But those self-doubts about musical talent may be for naught. We are all wired for music. And while few can match the output of a Schubert, Ellington or McCartney, many of us have the capacity to play an instrument and learn how to listen to music with greater appreciation and more clarity.

About 10% of the population simply does not like music, says neuroscientist Daniel Levitin, PhD. “For those that it is accessible to, though, it’s never too late to play an instrument,” Levitin adds. “People who have been told all their lives that they’re not musical shouldn’t listen. When they were 10, some schoolmarm said, ‘Just mouth the words while the rest of us sing.’ So they never got this training that they could have used to be singing better. Most people are more musical than they realize.”

Those discouraging schoolmarms appear to have succeeded. Barry Bittman, MD, a neurologist who heads the Mind-Body Wellness Center in Meadville, Pennsylvania, points to census data that showed that less than 8% of people over age 18 had picked up a musical instrument in the course of one year.

Bittman says research shows the tangible health benefits of playing a musical instrument. In one study published in Medical Science Monitor (2/05), playing recreational music reversed 19 genetic switches that turn on the stress response believed to play a role in the development of cancer, diabetes and other diseases. The research showed that musical expression was three times more effective in reducing stress than simply relaxing with a newspaper, says Bittman, the study’s principal investigator.

Becoming a Player

A big challenge for adult beginners is to avoid getting hung up on years of listening experience. While music therapists employ recognizable strains of music with their clients, familiarity can work against adults learning a new instrument, says Julie Lyonn Lieberman, a violinist and composer who conducts workshops to help musicians avoid injury to body or mind while learning their craft.

“Adults become very agenda-focused because they know the difference between something that sounds impressive or inspiring and something that sounds simple or basic, like a scale or Mary Had a Little Lamb,” Lieberman says. “Adults want to create sound at the level they’ve already heard it” and give up when they can’t play it quickly...
