Gorin Studio

Gorin Studio was established in 1993 in Carmel, IN. It provides progressive classical piano instruction to serious music students and has produced numerous winners of state, national and international competitions.  . Many outstanding students participate and win various competitions not only locally but nationwide and internationally with a number of them being invited to perform at Carnegie Hall in New York. The studio provides many opportunities for students to participate in a variety of programs, such as recitals, competitions, workshops, master classes and auditions, associated with various music organizations.

Gorin Studio provides an enthusiastic, creative and enjoyable environment for young musicians to develop their talent and to keep the wonderful art of classical music alive. Many of our students have chosen music as their professional career.  Eight of the studio graduates are successful piano teachers now.  Often piano teachers have come to observe Irina’s private lessons to learn about her teaching methods from different states of USA, Canada, Spain.

Weekly individual piano lessons are offered once or twice a week in 30, 45, or 60 minute sessions, depending on the student’s age/level. Students are expected to practice daily on a well-maintained acoustic piano.  As part of taking private lessons, students are provided with a variety of studio opportunities. They will be involved in class recitals and students that commit themselves will be able to participate in local, state, national and international competitions.

Piano Tuning and Service is available with free estimate and 10% discount for the first time tuning

A piano brings a lifetime of enjoyment to you and your family. As you might expect with any investmentof this size, a piano requires periodic servicing to provide outstanding performance year after year.

PianoThe beautiful, natural sound of a piano is due to the remarkable blending of such materials as wood, metal, buckskin, and wool. Together they create a uniquely timeless sound that no other instrument in the world can duplicate. While electronic synthesizers may approximate the sound of an acoustic piano, they cannot approach the true beauty of the real thing.

The three components of musical performance that need to be adjusted periodically are pitch, tone, and touch. Tone is maintained by voicing, and touch by servicing the piano action, called regulation. Piano tuning is the adjustment of the tuning pins so that all the strings are of the proper tension (pitch), to have the correct sounding, musical intervals.

An out-of-tune piano or an unresponsive touch can discourage even novice musicians. Regular maintenance also can prevent expensive repair in the future.

Most manufacturers recommend servicing at least one to two times a year to keep the piano sounding good and working properly each time you sit down to play. This is especially important the first year of your piano’s life. Some tuning instability should be anticipated during the first year because of the elasticity of the piano wire, combined with the piano’s normal adjustment to the humidity changes in your home. A piano which has gone a long time without tuning may require extra work in pitch raising. But most importantly, be sure the regular servicing of your piano is performed by a qualified piano technician.

Myron Gorin has more than 25 years of experience. He works full-time bringing quality tuning and repair to pianos of all types in the homes, churches, and schools. Mr. Gorin provides a friendly and reliable service.

Overview and History of the Cello
The cello originated in the 16th century as a member of the violin family and was originally called the violoncello. The cello was created because composers were looking for a lower toned instrument in their music that could also function as a lead instrument. Traditionally the cello has served as the anchor between the violin and bass sections. However, the cello has come a long way since then. Some of the most famous pieces of the classical repertoire were written for or featured the cello, including pieces written by JS Bach for solo cello and Beethoven’s string quartets.

Age to Start Cello Lessons
The Cello demands many of the same skills as the violin, but due to its larger size it may be more appropriate to start a student on the cello when they would be able to carry and hold the instrument comfortably. We recommend the student be approximately 7-8 years old.

Procuring an Instrument
For younger students who require a smaller size cello, renting may be the best option available. New student and intermediate models are also available from many music stores. When it comes to purchasing a high quality instrument, the experience gained from speaking to a professional cello teacher would be invaluable.

Benefits of Cello Lessons
Playing the cello requires a refined ear and exceptional dexterity of the arms, hands, and fingers. Upon acquiring these skills through cello lessons, the student will then have the opportunity to be a part of this great history of cello music by studying the various repertoires from Bach, Brahms, and Tchaikovsky.
