About Priscilla

I love people of all ages. And I love helping them discover what beautiful things they can create in the world of music! Music is such a powerful way to express ourselves, and I love helping others learn how to do this and really enjoy it.

I have played piano since I was three. When I was able to read at age four, I began lessons, and the rest is history. I graduated from Wheaton College Conservatory of Music with a degree in Piano Performance and completed a Master's degree in Piano Performance at the University of Redlands. I love to perform, have written several songs, produced three CD's all with original music that I perform, and have just completed a fourth CD featuring major classical piano works arranged with favorite hymns. I have also written a musical and ...

I am very proud of knowing Priscilla and introducing her to be my son and nephew’s piano teacher. She is a very professional, responsible and high-level teacher. She loves teaching and loves to pass her music passion to her students. What’s more, she is also a composer. I love her solo CDs which have become my home and car background music, in which people can feel the elements of calmness, happiness, purity, maturity, delight and gratefulness, all beautiful alive feelings from life. Being instructed by such a wonderful teacher with beautiful inner spirit, no wonder all her students play beautiful music

Priscilla is nothing short of fantastic! I took lessons from her when she lived here in San Diego and enjoyed them so much I am now taking online lessons from her since she moved. She is profoundly knowledgeable, patient, dedicated and kind. Her teaching methods are clear and help to make learning the piano both interesting and fun. I am an adult student, but I also know that she is very skilled at teaching children of all ages.

Priscilla is a great singing teacher!

I've been taking singing lessons from Priscilla for a year. Mostly Broadway, some blues, some classical. I've learned a lot from Priscilla! I enjoy singing a lot more now and my voice has gotten dramatically better in a year. Priscilla is a fun, very sweet, and she makes you work hard. When I started, I knew how to read music but I didn't have experience singing. She has been a great teacher at every step of the way, even as my skill level has changed dramatically.
Alison S. Louisville, KY

You'll learn about chords, chord structures, hand positions, scales, finger exercises, as well as different genres of music from classical to pop.

I've been playing piano for about 15 years. It's a very versatile instrument! Learning piano even opens the way to learning other instruments. It also helps with music theory (and you'll be learning some theory along the way, which will help your playing). The first lessons usually are spent learning notes, rhythms, hand positions, and even a few songs! As you progress, you'll start moving more fluently around the keyboard, playing chords, recognizing patterns, using the pedals, and even take on some songs you're personally interested in playing.

I'm not a strict teacher; I'd rather my students enjoy the learning process and have fun with their instrument. I teach every student a little differently based on their age, previous knowledge, goals, learning style, and personality. I encourage my students to practice thoughtfully - I ...

About Alison

I'm passionate about music and love sharing that through performance and teaching. I received my degree in viola performance from the University of Louisville School of Music in May 2010. I studied under Chien-Ju Liao along with many other great violists in the Louisville community. I've also had the pleasure of playing with many quartets, chamber ensembles and orchestras including Louisville Youth Orchestra, All-State, the UofL Symphony, and the Louisville Orchestra. Some of my greatest moments involve playing in Carnegie Hall and premiering a world-class ballet performance with the UofL Symphony Orchestra. Music has been a part of my life since I was little and I can't imagine life without it. Along with viola, I also study, play and teach piano and violin.

Playing the piano is fun.

The first lessons Alison coached me on the fundamentals of piano playing, but also spent a good time listening to me play. The following lessons she added a songbook, delved deeper into the core course book, and added Beethoven (which I love). In short she had adapted our lessons to her evaluation of my ability and my feedback to build a course trajectory that would keep the lessons engaging, challenging, but fun.

Overall she is a great instructor and you feel no pressure playing in front of her.

I'm a 55 yr old female that hasn't taken voice lessons in the last 20+ years. From that time until recently I would just do karaoke off and on. I started taking lessons with Tanisha about seven months ago. She is the absolute best thing that has ever happened to my voice. Initially I just wanted to learn how to use my "alto" voice more effectively. I avoided singing soprano songs because it was very uncomfortable and it didn't sound right to me. But to my surprise Tanisha convinced me that I am in deed a first soprano. She started working with me on my singing with much attention on my upper range. Thanks to Tanisha, for the first time in my life I have started feeling like a real singer! She has truly taken me places vocally that I could have only dreamed of going. Even when I sing lower it sounds tons better. I practice consistently because I'm so excited about all of the progress I have made in just a seven month period. And I am just blown away that I have those high notes now! When it comes to the voice Tanisha is definitely a miracle worker! On top of that she has this bubbly personality and from the day that I met her I felt like I've been knowing her for years. She's like a new best friend!

For the past 6 months I have taken voice lessons with Tanisha. She has a very warm personality that makes you feel instantly comfortable and at ease. She is passionate about teaching and also tailors the lessons to who you are as an individual so that she can help to extract the very best out of you as a student. She is encouraging and never judgmental and meets you right where you are at. Most of all, she has abounding patience. I have seen an overall improvement in my vocal ability and can now sing in a range that I thought was impossible for me.

Tanisha is the perfect coach and teacher. She provides both services at such a high level, I definitely would not be where I am today without her guidance.

through the few short weeks I have worked with her, I have improved in my live performances as well as my mental aspects of my singing. the homework she gave during the week has literally changed my confidence and performance. I have never had so many compliments after a concert. It is both uplifting and affirming the hard work I've put into my vocals!! I only see a bright future ahead with Tanisha and myself.

I have been personally playing the piano for almost 40 years. I use several approaches depending on student's specific learning process and goals. No one leaves their first lesson without playing something on the piano.

About Natalie

Born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, at the age of 9, Natalie knew music was something that was just a part of who she was. Writing songs on the piano before lessons could be scheduled, Natalie found herself immersed in a medium that would bring her joy for the rest of her life.

By age 14 Natalie had won several trophies competing in Classical piano with the Illinois Music Association.

As an adult, she would go on to fill her life with the world of music as a singer, songwriter, performer and recording artist.

Graduating from Elmhurst College (1997) with a Bachelor's in Music, Natalie received high accolades earning a membership in the Lambda Sigma Psi Music Honor Society.

During her college years, Natalie created and owned a local music publication called, ...

Natalie is a wonderful piano teacher as she started with my 8 year old daughter from scratch. It has been several months now and she loves playing and looks forward to her lesson each week.

About David

Originally from Indiana, David has been teaching music in both the private and public school sectors for 12 years.

Bonnie has had a major impact on my daughters’ music studies since we were introduced July 2012. With the guidance of a dedicated music professional and patient teachings, my daughter has not only learned to play the oboe and piano, my daughter has made personal accomplishments beyond our expectation, and has brought out a sense of self-confidence within her.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for playing an important roll in teaching our daughter a skill that will truly last a lifetime.

About Piano

Learning to play the piano can be a very enjoyable hobby. The benefits of learning to play a musical instrument cannot be overstated!

The piano is a common instrument for beginning musicians, and many students choose piano to broaden their education as well as their physical and mental performance capacities. Piano is fun to learn, and with dedication and practice, most students can play several simple songs within a month or two.

Our friendly piano teachers offer both traditional piano as well as electric keyboard lessons. We also have teachers who specialize in wide varieties of musical genres, including jazz, blues, classical, country, rock and more.

It's no surprise students learn faster when taking private piano lessons. It simply cannot be compared to watching video ...
