Evanston and Piano Power
Piano Power has maintained an Evanston student base since 2001. We’re proud to be part of a city with such a vibrant artistic and cultural life. Piano Power founder Abraham Levitan has participated in First Night Evanston, the annual downtown New Year’s Eve fest. In addition, Piano Power students have been known to rock the E.T.H.S. Battle of the Bands!
Any Evanston student aged 7 to 107 can benefit from private guitar instruction. Students younger than 7 have achieved success as well — it’s worth considering on a case-by-case basis. For most of our Evanston guitar students, the necessary hand strength develops around age 7. Guitar students who have had a couple years of piano background find it particularly easy to jump right in.
Your guitar teacher will work with you to create a practice plan that works for your student’s schedule. The single most important element of guitar practice is regularity. We know our Evanston guitar students are busy! But devoting even a modest amount of time each day to guitar practice produces much better results than relying on weekly “cram sessions.” Ideally, your student will make guitar a regular part of his or her day.
No guitar required… at least, not right away
For your student’s first lesson, a guitar is not required — a student can share with his or her teacher. During the lesson, the teacher will be able to advise you on what kind of guitar (three-quarter size or full-size; acoustic or electric) makes the most sense for your student. After the first lesson, we recommend that your student acquire a guitar of his or her own, so that practice becomes a regular part of the day.
Piano Power recitals
After a minimum of three months of Piano Power guitar instruction, your guitar student will be eligible for participation in the Piano Power recital. Our guitar students have added tremendous excitement to our recitals. From classic-rock hits to original compositions, unaccompanied or with vocals, solo or as part of a duet — the performance possibilities are limitless, and thoroughly crowd-pleasing.
We’re ready to match you with a great Evanston guitar teacher!
