John Spradling Piano lessons in Syracuse, NY
I have always taught beginners and advanced, children and adults. My students have won international and regional competitions, and many, upon high school graduation, have been accepted at the largest conservatories on scholarship basis. Not all my students wish to aim at careers in music, and therefore, I am constantly reminded that the basic foundation for all people studying is that they learn to love music and understand it better than they did when they started. I have a long list of happy and lengthy associations attesting to my abilities to deal with people on a personal and individual level which is suited to their needs.
We are a personalized, professional piano studio in Syracuse, NY offering piano lessons for students of all ages.
I offer studies in classical repertoire, thorough technical grounding, ensemble playing, performance classes, recitals, and adjudications.
Testimonial by Parent
John's approach to instruction is tailored to the learning style of his students, while holding them to his high standards of performance. Our child has had a wonderful experience. For us, piano lessons are a great tool to teach her some discipline skills while catering to her love of music. It has been wonderful to watch her and her fellow students grow over the last two years she has taken lessons.
Testimonial by Student
I've never met anyone who has given so generously of their time, whether coming to all of my competitions and performances, or somehow managing to find two free hours in a row for a [make-up] lesson. I have grown tremendously as a musician and as a person, thanks to your unselfish teaching. You are the best teacher I have ever had. Even though I am going into voice, I most certainly would not be prepared for that without you, and all you have taught me at the piano. Thank you.
