Nicholas has been teaching my daughter vocal lessons for about 11 months and he’s fantastic!

She’s improved so much in 10 months! He’s awesome and delivers results! My daughter enjoys her lessons with him and she’s just 9 years old and has developed so much due to his mentor ship. My daughter also has an aptitude for singing and tends to catch on to his instructions quickly.

Private Classical Piano Teacher

I love teaching piano. In my eight years of experience, I've learned several piano methods, and I've developed my own approach which balances playing, listening, and analyzing music. My students have told me they appreciate me for my clear, simple way of explaining things, my enthusiasm, and the personal attention I give to each student. My primary goal is to train well-rounded musicians, and offer the benefits that entails, such as discipline, critical-thinking, and creativity.

About Shahin

I love teaching piano. I've taught for eight years, working with children and adults of all levels of experience. My students have said they appreciate my patience, enthusiasm, and careful plan for each lesson to achieve new skills and understanding. Each lesson is accompanied by written exercis

Private Classical Piano Teacher

I’ve been classicslly trained in Saint-Petersburg, Russia, one of the best places in the world where one can learn how to be a musician. Since then I’ve learned how to love and play jazz, pop, and rock, as well as how to sing, compose and understand the principles of composition and music theory. I graduated from Conservatory in Almaty and Berklee College in Boston and I’m pursuing Master of Arts, while teaching and performing in Boston area. Teaching experience is as fascinating as piano performance and yet, is more challenging at times. My focus is to make sure my students understand what they do and why they do it in music and seeing them grow is one of the greatest feelings I’ve had.

About Alya

Hello everyone! My name is Alya Izumchensky, I was born and raised in Saint-Petersburg, Russia, where I started my piano lessons. I was a very competitive classical pianist in my teenage years in Russia, and have won many regional and national competitions. My favorite composers always were Chopin

Alya is an absolute treasure and we are so happy to have found her!  In addition to being an amazing pianist, Alya has been an insightful and inspirational accompanist for my teenage daughter who plays violin. Alya helped her prepare for several competitions and her feedback and guidance greatly contributed to my daughter's strong performance at those competitions. Alya is also a person of integrity, intestinal fortitude and enormous grit. Just hours before one of my daughter's competitions, she severely injured one of her fingers in a scooter accident but instead of allowing us take her to the hospital, she insisted on playing at the competition with my daughter first! Here is a pianist who injured the most critical tool of her profession, and instead of tending to that, put others first!  In today’s world, these type of people are extremely rare and should be revered. We feel blessed to have met Alya and would strongly recommend her for anyone looking for a talented and caring piano teacher or accompanist!

Very knowledgeable and patient

Alya was great! I look forward to many more lessons to come!

Online Classical Piano Teacher

Classical music is the foundation for everything else!

I have been teaching piano for over 40 years, full-time for the past 15. Besides the actual repertoire, technique and theory are always included in my lessons because they are essential. Sight reading and ear training are also included in some lessons.

I stress accuracy in playing and attention to details! I also teach my students HOW to practice. Slow, accurate practice is the answer. Practicing takes patience!

Please note: Home lessons must be at a location that I can get to easily with public transportation. I do not have a car.

During high school I continued my studies with Jack Chaikin , a graduate of the Juilliard School. I attended Hofstra University where I received a B.A. in Music in 1979. At Hofstra, my pia

Bailey was an excellent lesson instructor! She took the time to make sure I was getting exactly what I wanted out of my violin lessons and tailored her approach to meet my background and ability level. She is extremely knowledgeable about all of the instruments she teaches, and her positive energy is contagious! I learned so much from Bailey and always enjoyed our lessons together.
Jack
Bailey gives great feedback and helped my son learn new songs quickly. Thanks!
Patrick
Bailey is an amazing teacher! I am primarily a low brass player, but had wanted to get better at piano. Bailey was able to analyze my musical needs, and developed a plan for my specific goals. She is great at focusing on specific problems and giving you advice for fixing them. At the same time, she is patient, and would be great with children, as well as adults. I would highly recommend getting lessons from Bailey!

"For more than a decade I have followed Tamari’s piano performances, compositions, choir direction, and performances of her students. The results have been superb as attested by audiences, colleagues, and those under her direction, including former performers with the Metropolitan Opera and other distinguished musicians.

I am delighted to learn that she has decided to take some additional fortunate students, including beginners. I have also witnessed excellent performances by her justifiably proud beginner students.

I am pleased to recommend Tamari as an excellent music teacher of piano, voice, or composition for students of any level.

Sincerely,

Robert D. Johnson"

Hannah also puts together awesome recitals, most recently at an outdoor piano near the Hotel Del Coronado—such a great opportunity for her students to share with each other and the community all they are learning. Thanks Hannah!"

"This is our second year with Miss Fawn and I can't say enough wonderful things about her. My two older girls have taken piano for 3 1/2 years and she is by far the best teacher we've had.
Miss Fawn is very talented in her own right and expects stellar results from her students. She has a way with kids that make them feel comfortable and excited about piano while making incredible progress.
My 7 year old just started taking lessons and has learned so much already.
Miss Fawn comes to our home each week which, as a busy mom of five, is extremely helpful with our crazy schedule.
Thank you, Miss Fawn!"
