Rebecca P. Seattle, WA

Online piano lessons specializing in classical piano and chord reading for children and adults.

About Rebecca

I have been teaching piano for almost 20 years. I played piano and keyboards in a band for several years, and I have been playing piano and singing at church for over nine years. I can help you learn the proper technique and musical skills for any kind of playing in the future, with more advanced teaching for classical piano. I can also teach chord playing for students that want to quickly learn their favorite songs. I'll even help you learn how to sing along!

*** Lesson Details ***
I have a lot of fun at my lessons, but I emphasize the importance of practice. For beginning students, I like to use the Alfred's Basic Piano Library (that teaches piano playing and note reading), which I supplement with fun games, history projects and music journal topics to ensure my ...

Great Teacher!

Holly goes out of her way to find music that is just right for my son on the piano. When he showed interest in a particular piece of music, she found a version that was perfect for him to learn. Holly is cheerful, flexible, and communicative. Her skill with music is wonderful! We highly recommend Holly!

What a terrible experience. I signed up for lessons for my wife from Brett as a gift because he listed times that would work for my wife given that we have a young daughter, and have a hard time making time for lessons. Brett told us 3 days before the lesson that the time wouldn't work, then simply never showed for the rescheduled first lesson. Worse, he simply refused to do scheduling via email (he would leave voicemails and failed to return my wife's call when she called back as they were playing phone tag), and then told us he had another commitment during the slot we had supposedly reserved for him. Worse, he failed to update the site as he continually cancelled lessons and never showed up for scheduled times. I now have a huge hassle of getting a refund on the money I paid for lessons as opposed to a lovely gift for my wife. Life's too short and we're too busy for such an awful experience.

Great teacher for my young daughter

Brett has been a great teacher for my 5 year old daughter. She is just learning the basics of piano and Brett has been great at expanding her skill sets. She really enjoys practicing with him and actually looks forward to when he comes over every week!

Fantastic for our 10-year old son...

Brett is fantastic with our 10-year old son who just enjoys playing piano and isn't looking to become a concert pianist someday. So many kids are miserable playing the same boring things over and over and Brett really listened to our needs and just nurtures our son's interest in music. Bravo!

John Paul S. Seattle, WA

I can teach basic piano skills, including the fingering and chord approaches.

About John Paul

I have been teaching voice and music lessons for several years now to a wide range and variety of students. I have successfully helped individuals learn how to sing, speak, act, write songs, and play the piano. Some students come to me to build their confidence or skills. Other students come to me just to have a really great time. All my students grow from their experiences learning music with me. I use a variety of methods and it all depends on what you, as a student, are needing from your lessons.

My background is diverse. I have written and recorded dozens of musical albums over the last decade. I often perform for music and theater events in Seattle and Washington. I have a bachelor of science in contemporary vocal performance and a master of arts in information and learning ...

Best teacher ever

JP has been teaching Mya for almost 2 years (since she was 6 years old) and Mya has been loving each lesson, can't wait for the next one, and has grown in many ways, that have exceeded our expectations.
JP is extremely patient, always positive, and knows how to reinforce the confidence whenever needed, provide clues for improvement that are very useful and positive. JP is an outstanding teacher.
The lessons are always a good mix of warming up, theory, singing, expressing emotions, new creations and also recording.
JP brings the best out of Mya, and makes her feel that he is also enjoying it.

I offer Simply Music piano lessons in my studio. Simply Music focuses on the sheer pleasure of playing. The hands-on approach, and immediate results, dispels the notion that learning to play means enduring years of lessons, boring practice sessions and relentless hours of drills.

How is Simply Music different?

-The quantity of music learned

-The quality of music you immediately learn to play

-The speed of your progress

-The ease with which you experience the process

The Simply Music Method is based on the premise that everyone, without exception, is naturally musical. Traditional methods insist that beginners learn to read music as the means of learning to play. This removes the natural connection between student and instrument and commonly, removes all the fun, too. In fact, expecting children to read before they have learned to play is like expecting children to read and write before they have learned to talk.

In stark contrast, Simply Music temporarily delays ...

About Rian

A native of West Seattle, Rian took his first piano lessons at the age of seven. His middle school music teacher recognized Rian’s musical talent and gave him his first public performance opportunity during the school’s annual musical. Rian would go on to play piano for the middle school productions for 3 more years. As Rian progressed into high school his talent increased as well. As a freshman in high school Rian successfully tried-out for the award winning JFK High School Jazz Band and soon took over as the primary pianist.

rian is a good teacher

he is the only piano teacher i have had. i was teaching myself piano and was given some lessons as a gift, and i chose him somewhat randomly from the teachers listed on takelessons dot com. i had several lessons from him and he gave me lots of good ideas. i would have continued with him, but for circumstances out of my control. i would recommend him as a teacher. he has lots of experience and can tailor his teaching depending on what you want to do

Rian is patient which is what I needed. He makes you feel comfortable and has a low key way of pointing out areas for improvement without offending.Would recommend him to others who want to play piano, regardless of how old you are.
Kay E. Seattle, WA

I do not teach above beginning piano. Basically, I shouldn't be taking work from all those wonderfully hardworking instructors that offer as an alternative - more depth, proficiency, experience and technically proper instruction.

There are a few reasons why I offer piano lessons. First, I'm qualified in teaching the rudimentary rules and technique of the piano. Second, I incorporate the piano when teaching guitar. Third, I generally use the piano when teaching composition, songwriting and arranging. The reason for this is because the piano offers increased range, tonal depth and visual convenience when illustrating concepts to my students.

About Kay

I fell in love with music at a very young age. Perhaps occurring while seated in the very back of my moms Datsun 510 station wagon during a mildly warm and smoggy Los Angeles afternoon. While my mom ran a quick errand, I vividly remember being consumed by a radio pop tune left on for us kids to enjoy. It was during this moment that I recall consciously thinking - "I want to do that". Whatever "that" was remained to be seen....

Despite "wanting to do that", I wasn't taken serious when my mom arrived back in the car. Arriving to a son yelling "I wanna do that", "make it louder", I wanna do that". She laughed. This while probably reflecting back on those other occasions in which I insisted on being a ...
