A warm hello from Aglaia Koras in West Bethesda, Maryland, located in the Washington, DC metro area. I am a concert pianist and piano teacher with over 30 years experience. I teach students of all ages, from very young children through adults, from beginners through advanced. I love to help my students discover and develop their unique passion for piano playing and to share their joy of music with others. I bring expert training, which includes graduate study in piano pedagogy, a unique rapport with students, as well as years of experience on the university, conservatory, and elementary/secondary school level in piano teaching. I am a graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music. Read more about my background.
There are a few openings in my studio now for new students. I have taught children as young as age 3 or 4 but have taught children of all ages. My students learn to develop the joy of music in a supportive, encouraging setting. Lessons are individually designed and repertoire is selected specifically according to each student's unique needs, goals, and desires. Students are taught how to practice so that they like what they hear, and this motivates them to continue to make progress. In addition to the study of the piano, students get the opportunity to perform several times each year, if they wish. As an added attraction, my students love to play my nine-foot concert grand piano!
Many of my students have gone on to enjoy careers as doctors, lawyers, and other professionals. Some have also chosen to pursue careers as professional musicians and have won international competitions. Whatever their goals, my students keep in touch with me and have greatly cherished their piano lesson experience.
I teach adults of all ages and in all stages of life. Some are returning to the piano after many years, and some want to begin piano study as adults. I work sensitively and supportively with my adults to inspire them and to expertly assist them in accomplishing their unique goals. Adults also have the opportunity to perform, if they so choose.
Piano lessons take place in my studio in West Bethesda, MD, in the Washington, DC metro area on my nine-foot concert grand piano.
