Kayla S.

Arlington, TX

Hello! My name is Kayla and I've been teaching piano lessons for 5 years. I use different curriculum for each grade level but I mostly stick to the Piano Lessons series by James Bastien. I started playing piano almost 15 years ago using the James Bastien books to start and feel that the curriculum is informative and provides one of the best basic, beginner exercises for piano technique and understanding.

My goal is to make sure that each student is comfortable at the piano and with me as their teacher, as well as to make sure that have a basic understanding of music theory, piano technique, and music reading.

My teaching philosophy is students first. I want people to be able to fulfill their passion of creating beautiful music and acquire a new and very important skill. I order to do that I think students must feel comfortable with their teacher, especially when looking to them for guidance. My style is fairly laid back, I like to make my lessons fun and enjoyable but I do

About Kayla

I'm a young, enthusiastic piano teacher living in the Arlington area. My musical journey started when I was 10 years old when I received my first piano lesson. Since then, I have been studying piano with several amazing teachers, including some that have studied at the top music institutions in the nation, such as Eastman School of Music, University of North Texas, and the Peabody Institute. At current, I am finishing my Bachelor's in Music Media at the University of Texas at Arlington and have also obtained a Associate of Arts degree from Tarrant County College.

*** Lesson Details ***
I a
m a fairly laid back teacher, however I do expect my students to practice. After 3-6 months with me, you will have learned how to read music, learned all basic piano terms, and how to execute most basic piano techniques. Whether you have dreams of playing in concert halls or just for your friends in your bedroom, I am confident that I can help you get there!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to provide a piano(not an electric keyboard) with 88 working keys, a metronome, and music books.

*** Specialties ***
In piano, I specialize in classical music. I teach from every period of music(Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Contemporary).

Kayla as an instructor is great. However, she is unprofessional. She is ALWAYS (and this is no exaggeration) 10-20 minutes late for lessons. Most of the time without notification or apology. The proverbial "straw" was after we had to reschedule a lesson due to her being out of town. We scheduled a 1:45 lesson. It was 2 and I haven't heard from her. After a text, she said she could be there in about 20 minutes because a previous lesson ran over or reschedule. I opted to keep the lesson since I arranged my schedule to fit a lesson. She was supposed to be at my home at 2:20 and it was 2:50 before she showed up. Prior to her arrival, I did send a text that we needed to discuss our schedule. Upon her arrival, she told me that most parents give her a 15 min grace period. This is not listed in her description or was it discussed prior to lessons. I explained the value of professionalism and punctuality. If she is late, it sets my schedule off. I offered a resolution: that we can set the new time to 1:45 since that's the time she arrives anyway. She STILL wanted this "grace period." I offered to cancel my lessons, but she said she would be here Friday at our new scheduled time. Later that night, I sent a text explaining that our talk should move us in a positive direction. She informed me that she took my daughter off her roster shortly after she left my home. Let's be reminded, this was AFTER she said she would be here Friday. That is unprofessional. She is obviously unable to accept being told what is expected for a PAID service. I hope she learns the value of customer service, professionalism, and consideration of others.

Yana Giles has been the best piano teacher I have ever taken lessons from out of all 5 teachers I've had. She is patient, encouraging and motivational through every piece she assigns me. My appreciation for music grew an enormous amount after beginning lessons with her. My hand technique improved, as well as performance ability. I recommend her to anyone looking to learn the piano! Even if you have already learned the piano and wish to improve somehow, Yana will show you a new understanding of music that you never thought you could have.

Great teacher

My teacher is very knowledgeable, yet she is able to teach beginner music. She has not only taught me to read notes, she has told me a lot of history about the instrument and lots of music. I think she is the very best!!!!

Carl W.

Fort Worth, TX

I have over 20 years of experience playing as a professional musician. I teach students piano performance techniques for classical and jazz. Students are taught how to read music, chord and scale theory, improvisation, and how to play by ear.

About Carl

As far back as I can remember I have always enjoyed performing music. I can remember during my elementary school years how I would play drums during church service. Some days I would sneak in my dad's closet to play his saxophone. I began learning how to play saxophone in middle school and by the time I was in high school I was learning piano, performing jazz, and composing music.
I went on to get a Bachelor of Music at the University of North Texas. I have been performing professionally for over 18 years. I also have taught band for 11 years in Dallas ISD. I enjoy teaching and mentoring ot
her up and coming musicians. It's a joy to see another world open up to them through music.
Through my warm and positive personality and experience as a certified music teacher and music performer, I understand how to meet the social and educational needs of each music student. I am well versed at solving problems and helping students thrive and reach their full potential. I think that I do this best by personalizing the instruction experience for each unique situation. I love to encourage students and help them discover the music in them.

*** Lesson Details ***
Like me, students can expect to enjoy the process. Students will discover that I am very encouraging during lessons. I keep everything upbeat and positive. I will help you come up with goals musically. I am very patient, all while coaching you so that you get positive results.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Upright Baldwin piano, electronic keyboard 88 keys, music stands, sitting area for parent, CD/iPod stereo.

*** Specialties ***

Marilyn J.

Fort Worth, TX

I teach classical piano. I include theory and ear training with piano lessons. I use some music games and play activity for young students. I have some materials that I provide but books are purchased by the parents.

About Marilyn

Music is soothing to the soul. It can calm us when anxious. It can teach young children focus, concentration and improve fine motor skills. I feel classical piano is a basic foundation to learn many instruments and types of music. I include theory and ear training with piano lessons. My goal is to try and turn on the student's love for music so that he or she wants to spend time at the piano at home improving skills.

Annette was our boys' piano teacher for the 4 1/2 years we lived in Germany. She worked so well with both boys, adjusting to their very different styles. Her patient, kind, encouraging style in a relaxed, non-intimidating environment gave the boys confidence and a love for piano. I was always especially impressed with Annette's follow through with a detail or question or technique that came up during a lesson that needed elaboration. She would often go the extra step and seek out a further example or answer a question in further detail after a lesson and email that information to me to share with the boys. I can't express how grateful I am for the gift of music that she has instilled in both boys. She was a wonderful teacher.

Annette has been an excellent piano teacher for my children! They have caught her love for piano. I appreciate her expert level teaching and especially love her patience with them. They really want to do their best for her. My children have taken lessons from her for just about three years and we couldn't recommend her highly enough.
