Welcome!

Hello! My name is Reiko Bailey. I live in Jupiter, Florida. 

I have a Master of Music in Music Education degree (Piano pedagogy concentration)and have over 20 years experience to as a pianist and a piano teacher, as a certified Yamaha System Instructor in Tokyo and New York City where I specialized in teaching children’s piano. I recently moved to Jupiter in 2017 and am currently available to teach students of any age. Current youngest student is 3 years old, and the oldest student is... 89 years old! Let's enjoy learning piano together! 

During the course of out lessons, I will help you and/or your children discover your hidden musical talents, learn to play your favorite pieces, and cultivate a life-long love of music! 

I can help my students to: 

  • Develop an appreciation for classical, jazz, or popular piano music

  • Perfect their ear and transcribe what they hear

  • Learn to read sheet music

  • Practice good form and proper technique

  • Express themselves creatively through their own music

My lessons typically range from 30 minutes to 1 hour long depending on the age and experience of the student and include guidance for self-study between lessons. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you are interested in learning piano! 

Looking forward to studying piano together! :)

Also, if you are looking for a pianist for an upcoming event like a private party, weddings, gigs, birthday party, etc... please feel free to contact me. 

Thank you!

Ms. Reiko

こんにちは! フロリダ州ジュピターエリアでピアノ講師をしているレイコ  ベイリーです。

武蔵野音楽大学ピアノ専攻学士課程修了。千葉県でヤマハ音楽教室のシステム講師として約10年間勤務後、ジャズを学びにニューヨークへ渡米。ニューヨーク市立大学シティカレッジでジャズパフォーマンス専攻学士課程を修了後、ニュージャージー州ウィリアムパターソン大学大学院でクラシックピアノとジャズピアノ指導法を研究し、レクチャーリサイタルで講演、同大学院音楽教育学科ピアノ修士課程を修了。NYで演奏活動やヤマハシステム講師として音楽教室で勤務する傍ら個人のピアノ教室を立ち上げ約10年間、沢山の大好きな子供たちに囲まれながら毎日仕事をさせて頂きました。個人レッスン、グループレッスン、出張レッスン、デイケア、公立小学校でアフタースクールのピアノクラスを受け持ってきました。ニューヨークからフロリダに越してきて間もないですが、現在ジュピターに住んでいます。年齢を問わず、新しくピアノの生徒さんを募集しています。

私のレッスンでは、まずは音楽を好きになって、ピアノを弾くことや音符を読むことで子供たちの中の音楽性を引き出していく事を目標としています。音楽を楽しみながら、好きな曲を弾けるようになったり、絶対音感を身に付けるためのレッスンもしていきます。

私のピアノレッスンでは、

  • 音楽を聴いて音楽性を高める
  • 聴こえてきた音が鍵盤で弾けるように耳を育て絶対音感を養う
  • 譜読みができるようになる
  • 正しいフォームと指使いで美しい音色を奏でる
  • 音楽表現が豊かになる

この目標を目指して、一人一人の生徒さんに合わせたレッスンスケジュールを立て、週ごとにきちんと自分で課題が無理なく出来るように指導していきます。

ご連絡お待ちしています!
