About Mary

I began taking piano lessons on a whim in middle school, but it didn't take long before I realized I was completely in love with music. I enjoy playing and teaching many types of music, from classical to rock to hymns and church music. I learned to play by ear at the same time I learned to sight read, and both approaches have helped me to learn and enjoy the music I play.

I graduated in December 2010 with a BA in Music Performance from North Central University, here in the Twin Cities. I have been teaching piano lessons for the last 6 years, as well as directing a children's choir. Watching other people learn to play music is one of the greatest rewards I've received.

A gifted teacher for teaching Piano Lessons

Mary has inspired my daughter Joanne to want to play piano. She has a way of balancing what the kids like to play and what the parents want in a music lesson for their kids. Joanne has not lost interest like we thought she might, but has wanted to Accelerate learning piano. She gets them playing music right away and then little by little explains more and more about music itself. It is an all-around winning strategy, especially when teaching kids.
Thank Mary

Great teacher

Mary was able to help me get a basic understanding of the piano and help me to read music. Mary did a terrific job of using my strengths to make it easier for me to learn to play the piano better.

Piano lessons will help you develop the basic skills of keyboard (piano) playing, keyboard techniques (posture, hand position, fingering, etc.) and sight reading.
1. Develop the basic skills of keyboard (piano) playing;
2. Freely engage in creative expression; and
explore the technical elements of music.
3. Perform keyboard pieces applying basic reading and coordinative skills.
4. Create and play from memory any assignment required by the performer.

About Melody

Are you looking to sing or play keyboard, work on material for your band, build your repertoire, sing or play in the church choir/band, audition for a production, become a better lead singer in your rock or pop band, overcome stage-fright or wanting to get to the next level? You have come to the right place!

My lessons provide students with an opportunity to deeply explore the voice, build confidence, and to develop healthy and effective singing practices, which can be applied to any style of musical singing and playing.

A well-rounded music education is very important and I have fun and educational resources for learning vocal technique, ear training, harmony, pitch matching and music theory.

I am very fortunate to have performed and studied Classical and Opera, musical theater ...

About Jacob

Hi everyone. If you're reading this, that means you're taking the time to consider music lessons for yourself or a family member, which is fantastic. Most people play music because of one simple reason - it's fun. The fun and excitement of playing a song for the first time is a great experience that you don't forget. The benefits that musical study has on an individual, both young and old, are too many to list in full here. It provides a fun, relaxing hobby, it keeps the mind sharp, people who study music tend to do better in school and work, it can bring one out of a sad mood, it is a fun social activity....... the list goes on and on!
As someone who has studied music for 25 years and taught for nearly 10, I understand the reasons why people ...

About Yasmin

My music students are introduced to basic music theory, notation, and technique that enables them to play fun, simple melodies after the first lesson, and fun simple arrangements after the first month.
My students can expect lessons to suit their tastes and goals, whether they intend to pursue music formally, professionally, or for personal enjoyment.

I studied classical piano and theory with Sr. Cecile Amore, jazz theory and mellophone with be-bop saxophonist John Mastroianni, jazz piano with Noreen Grey Sauls, and jazz history with the late Bill Finegan- big-band leader and acclaimed arranger for Tommy Dorsey and Glenn Miller.

I enjoy playing classical music (primarily Mozart, Beethoven and Chopin) tango, and pop songs as well. I have played keyboards and bass guitar ...

Despite the fact that I'm primarily a percussionist, I've been playing piano for even longer, 15+ years, in fact. I graduated with a degree in Music Education and Performance from Berklee College of Music. I'm willing and fully capable of teaching beginning to intermediate piano students, and I have 500+ hours of experience student teaching, working with students at the elementary and high school levels. No matter what piano skills you want to work on, I'm happy to help!

An excited learning experience

I have had lessons for a month with Billy, and will continue to study with him in future. He is an excellent teacher. Nothing to neat pick, everything is just amazing. He taught every single details of what I should know about drumming, recommended a really helpful textbook to me, and even helped to make my practice a great fun other than a dull work for a beginner. I really appreciate those. If someone is expecting to have an effective and pleasing learning experience, just go ahead try to work with Billy. It is absolutely worth the time and effort. Hope that'd be helpful.

Minneapolis Piano Lessons - Making Music in a City Full of Talent

By Beth V. - Minneapolis Piano Teacher

During my final year at Berklee College of Music, I often thought of how lucky some of my fellow classmates were to call places like New York, Los Angeles or Nashville their hometowns. Many Berklee graduates take that stressful step of moving to an unfamiliar city known for its abundance in arts culture, but for others that’s simply a familiar place called home. After finishing my undergraduate degree in Boston, I also moved back to my hometown of Minneapolis/St. Paul to begin my career as a professional musician. I’d like to share with you today how lucky musicians are to have these Twin Cities and all the potential resources available to students taking Minneapolis piano lessons.

The Minneapolis/St. Paul region is filled with professional ...
