*** Lesson Details ***
I instruct children as well as adults ranging from beginning to advanced levels in the art of playing the piano. I teach various styles of music including standard classical repertoire and popular pieces. Through a creative, fun and individualized approach to teaching, my students also learn ear training, sight reading, music theory, piano technique and music history as it pertains to the pieces they are currently learning. After one month, beginning students can expect to have learned how to play one piece of music of their choosing and one piece of music chosen by me. After a few months of studying with me, they can expect to have gained basic music reading skills.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Steinway Baby Grand Piano, 76 key Casio keyboard, Dell All In One 20" desktop, music software and music theory games

My son has been taking piano lessons with Lisa for more than 6 months. Lisa is a great teacher. She is very patient and knowledgeable. She's able to correct my son's problems. I've seen tremendous growth and improvement on him since he's been studying piano with Lisa. Lisa is also very willing to work with us on scheduling issues as well. I would definitely recommend her.

About Dr. Ossie M.

Decatur, GA

View Full Profile

Custom tailored lessons just for you. Designed
to teach students how to play the piano, read and understand music notations and music theory, and express themselves musically using music they like . I specialize in teaching chords, chord charts, theory so that students 12 and above leave bout playing songs they love on the first day.

About Dr. Ossie
I started taking piano lessons at the age of eight under the instruction of Robert Wilson before switching to Rosaline Saunders Music Studio. I play by ear, but also read music. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Louisiana at Monroe with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music. My purpose is to create well rounded musicians, who can play all genres of music, and who will also know how to set the atmosphere with their music. I love teaching piano and I love teaching all ages. I began teaching piano in 2003 before becoming the founder of The Master's Hands Music Studio in 2004. My greatest joy is seeing the knowledge and gift of music passed to others that was afforded me by the sacrifice of my late parents.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am patient but expect my students to practice so that our lessons are a continuation
of the lessons taught before and not practice sessions in themselves. I use the Alfred's Basic Piano Lesson and Theory books. I believe in custom tailoring the lesson to each student. Finding out what you love and working to get you to the place of playing that music.

*** Specialties ***
Teach all genres, specialize in gospel and R&B

Alfred method used. I teach Beginners to Intermediate level.

About Laura
I teach voice, piano and guitar. My Music Degree from Point Loma Nazarene University is in Vocal Performance. I love what I do. I teach children through adults. I have lots of experience in worship
leading for church if that is of interest.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am easy-going, but I expect you to practice. I am thorough in my approach. For piano lessons, I utilize the Alfred method. I emphasize note reading and theory in each genre, whether taking guitar, voice or piano. I am currently using Hal Leonard's Guitar Method books for guitar and a few different things for vocal curriculum. All lessons can be supplemented with what you are currently interested in or working towards. I enjoy helping prepare young people for their performances in theatre arts. Lessons can be combined, for example; if you are interested in both voice and
guitar, you can take a longer weekly lesson and have both subjects covered! Weekly assignments are given and checked to see if done before proceeding to the next step! I do not recommend students come every other week. I recommend one lesson per week.

*** Travel Equipment ***
guitar and books. Student provides their guitar during lesson and for piano, must have a piano or keyboard at home for practice.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in helping young worship leaders hone their gifts. I enjoy preparing people for their musical theatre performances.

David is a very skilled drummer and a very enthusiastic teacher. In lessons, he seems to like to split time between practicing rudiments and learning to play different rhythms on the set. He is also exceptionally patient and supportive with my 9-year-old, highly distractible daughter. David is very positive, pointing out things that are going well and interesting rhythms that they discover. I am really glad we found David--he is an excellent teacher and I love watching my daughter learn so much about music!

About Alena K.

Killeen, TX

If you are looking for professional musician for piano lessons, we are the perfect match!

I am a professional pianist with substantial experience in teaching piano to students of different ages. I hold two Master's Degrees in Piano Performance: the first from Kharkiv National University of Arts in Ukraine and the second from Anton Rubinstein International Music Academy in Germany.

I previously performed as a solo pianist, played chamber music, and taught at a private music academy in Germany.

As an experienced piano teacher, I would say that it is always important to have a classical background no matter what kind/style of music you prefer to play (although it is not necessary to focus exclusively on the classics). No matter what your goals are, improving technique and understanding harmony and theory will help you succeed.

I strive to make the learning process interesting and enjoyable. I have been playing piano for over 20 years, and I strive to share my knowledge and ...

About Alena
As an experienced musician and piano teacher, I offer piano lessons for everyone who is willing to learn how to play the instrument and is passionate about it.
For some of us playing the piano could be a serious, life changing way of making a career as a famous musician and bringing your dream and passion to the next level.
For some of us it could be a nice hobby, where you can express your feeling and emotions by performing or composing music.
It's for you to decide but no matter what you are doing in your life, you should be passionate about it!

Being a music instructor for over 10 years and having experience teaching in Ukraine, Germany and USA, I try to combine different methods and find individual style of teaching for everyone, who is willing to learn (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced).

I offer individual lesson plans a
nd music material depending on your music taste and personal needs. You don't need to worry about anything, just enjoy what you're doing and I will take care of the rest!

I have been playing piano myself for over 20 years and I would like to share my knowledge with others and have them fall in love with music as I did.

Chris is a great teacher! As an adult beginner, it is sometimes difficult to find a teacher who will treat you as an adult yet give you great instruction when you are just a beginning piano student. Chris does this with ease. I am now an intermediate level student and he takes the same time and care with his teaching as he did when I was a beginner. I am looking forward to advancing even more during my time as a student with Chris Mauldin. I couldn't have asked for a better teacher.

As a beginner piano student, Chris made me feel very welcome in that class, was very patient with me, and gave me many resources to improve my playing technique and artistry. I walked out of each lesson feeling like I had learned something and I had a concrete way to work on it. Overall, I had a great experience with the class, and Chris made it engaging and, honestly, really fun.

Met Anna, she lost the way. We spoke while she was driving. We lost 10 minutes.
Anna was very pleasant. There was more talking than hands-on training. Maybe this is the first time. It is better if she annotates in writing what I did wrong in my Teachers Notebook while she observed me playing.
