Greetings!

 

As a potential student or parent I’d like to thank you for considering Mo Egeston Piano Studio for your study of music. My aim at the Egeston Studio is to provide structure without the limitations or prejudices of adhering to a certain style.

 

My training has been for the most part based in the classical tradition and I have great respect for this time tested method of piano study. However in today's world there are many wonderful means of musical expression. After graduate school I found myself exploring the worlds of jazz, electronic dance music, funk, tango and swing. And I love them all!

 

So if you choose to study with me expect to learn the basic skills of note reading, music theory and piano technique in a traditional fashion. Once you have enough of a foundation we can decide on a path that will take to where you want to be musically.  Although I must say that the journey is never complete- I will simply provide my skills and energies to assist you along the way.

 

Students will have the opportunity to perform on recitals, at festivals and for their fellow students. Older students will have the choice to perform or simply pursue the piano for pleasure.

 

 

My formal training culminated in a degree in Chamber Music, so I am also happy to provide accompanying or coaching as a part of or separate from the lesson. My real world training has taken me into the world of music production, beat making and digital recording so some instruction may be considered in these areas as well.

 

Jazz and pop students will have opportunities to record themselves and even create demo quality CDs if that is an interest.

 

Ultimately, style does not matter.  Just be committed to learning and I will be happy to have you. Please email me at mo {at} moegeston {dot} com with any questions.

 

Happy Playing!

 

Recitals are held at Steinway Piano Gallery, Kranzberg Arts Center and Ladue High School in the Spring, Summer and Late Fall with students of violinist Twinda Murry.
