OUR MUSIC LESSONS
 
 
The fundamental goal at Hands Together Piano Studio is to maximize the likelihood of students acquiring and retaining music as a lifelong companion.

There are four specific goals that our program and methodology are centered around. Our aim is for students to:
 
Experience their musicianship as a natural self-expression.
 
Play repertoire that covers a broad range of musical styles.
 
Develop the ability to progress independently.
 
Have a highly positive, self-affirming experience throughout the music learning process.
 
 

Why choose Hands Together Piano Studio?
 

There are many piano studios offering classical piano lessons. What is unique about me (Cheryl Woodford) and Hands Together?

I am a dedicated, gifted, full time teacher, with a lifetime of experience playing and teaching piano. I have taken lessons most of my life and will never stop striving to play and teach better. My style is down to earth, engaging, flexible and challenging. I want students to enjoy lessons and the songs they are learning, so they will stick with piano and have all the benefits that playing piano brings. The greatest feeling is when my students leave their lessons smiling! I want to teach my students everything they need to know to be great piano players and to be able to play whatever they like. I will always give choices of songs to learn. I am happy to help with any music students need to learn for school or church. I love when students talk to me and ask questions!

I request that parents attend lessons for the first few years so they can see what's going on. Learning piano is like a 3 legged stool. It requires a willing student, a compatible teacher, and very supportive parents at home.

Besides loving piano, my specific goals for students are to read music fluently, to play easily with great technique, to play songs they love, and to share their playing in group classes throughout the year.

One of my former students is a full time piano teacher. Another had a lead role this year in The Addams Family musical at her high school. One sings in the Keystone Boys Choir. Many students play additional instruments - violin, saxophone, drums, flute, and ukelele.

I also teach many adult students.  Many have come back to piano after playing as a child, and many have started from scratch, even in their 50's and 60's. 

I have enjoyed living in Willow Grove since 1984. This is a lovely quiet neighborhood, easy to get to, with plenty of available parking. My youngest student now is about 7 and my oldest about 70. The youngest student I ever taught was 3 and the oldest was 85.

I hope to hear from you. Please get in touch to schedule a free information session!

 

Anyone interested in learning more about Hands Together Piano Studio can come for a free 30-minute introductory session. This is an opportunity to see the studio, meet the teacher and listen to her play some great-sounding songs!  All your questions will be answered regarding tuition, scheduling, practicing, and any other questions you may have.

I hope you will enjoy watching some of the videos throughout this website and on the Videos page!
