We are happy to announce the addition of two new teachers to the faculty at Gist Piano Academy this Fall!
Nancy Stelter grew up in Pennsylvania and recently moved to Lexington from Rochester, New York. She has extensive experience in teaching, performing and accompanying in her home studio and at a variety of music schools, including: the Eastman School of Music Community Music School, Millikin University and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Nancy uses an integrated approach, combining modern teaching methods, theory and classical repertoire. Her main emphasis is on developing strong music reading skills and expressive playing while having fun making music! You can read more and see more of Nancy here. She is currently accepting private piano students as well as offering group classes for adults!
Judith Chen Davis has spent many years of her life coaching her students through the Royal Conservatory of Music program and currently teaches piano at Campbellsville University. She believes that students should have a fun time learning the basics of music and it is her goal to create students who are proficient at the piano as well as life-long lovers of music. Judith’s students frequently receive Superior ratings at the Kentucky Music Teachers’ Association’s State Keyboard Festival and she has served KMTA as a Festival Clinician in 2012 and 2013.
Judith focuses both on the private piano experience and on group learning. In both programs, she offers a healthy dose of music theory and aural (or “ear”) training experience. You can read more about Judith here. She is currently accepting private piano students as well as offering group piano classes for adult beginners and an exciting class called “I Used to Play Piano” for adults who used to take piano lessons.
