We contacted him and he was making a suggestion to have my son go to his house and when I told him I didn’t like that suggestion as I specifically noted I needed at home tutoring he abruptly cancelled and said we weren’t a good fit.

Although this was my first lesson with Brian, he is a perfect match for me. He has a gentle, docile personality, good humored and very patient. He's especially great with beginners, older students and special needs individuals. In close proximity so he didn't have to travel far. His teaching style, for me, is very effective and he's a very nice person.

Brian is the best! Highly encouraging - especially for me as a beginner.

For beginning piano students, I use Marilyn Lowe's Music Moves for Piano series. If a student already has purchased piano books or has piano books from an older sibling, I would not ask the student to purchase more books until we had used what they already had to its full capacity. For adults and older beginners, I try to find out what the student is interested in, and guide my instruction accordingly to keep the lessons engaging and fun, no matter their ability level.

I'm a passionate, motivated instructor who loves working with students of all ages. In 2003, I graduated from Bryan College with a Bachelor of Science degree in Music Education with a vocal emphasis and in 2011, I graduated from James Madison University with a Masters of Arts degree in Music Educat

Ceste has a great ear and is willing to meet you wherever you are in your skill level. She cares about what kind of sound you dream of, identifies your natural strengths, and works those into realistic goals to work towards.

She practices using the Alexander Method. Her expertise in how the body affects the voice actually gave me a ton of useful information to successfully identify the cause of some chronic health/pain issues (although she never offers medical advice, I was able to integrate her feedback about what was affecting the quality of my voice into medical care with my Drs).

Thanks Ceste!
Taylor
She is a really good teacher and teaches you step by step and helps you on things that you have trouble with and shows you ways to improve on something
Kathy
Ceste is a fine piano teacher! Even though I was 64 when I started taking lessons, she reassured me that I'd do fine! She is very patient and easy to get along with. Always pleasant and very knowledgeable about her trade! She has a vast array of talents for her years!!

I love playing piano and I want you to as well!

Music is a fun way to express yourself! Only it’s a little difficult if you’re trying to do it on your own. Trying to sit down and read music can take forever, and there’s a lot of words or symbols that might be confusing. All of that might discourage you to continue.

KEEP GOING! I want to help you understand what all this means so you can play the songs you wanna play.

Things you’ll learn
-How to identify notes on a piano
-How to read notes on a staff (sheet music)
-How to play scales
-How to play arpeggios
-How to play chords
-How to read chords
-How to count and play rhythms
-How to play songs by ear
-How to play songs by reading music
-How to play music and HAVE FUN!

About Kevin

"Ashot is extremely talented, unique , having his own style musician and teacher.
We have tried several piano teachers but Ashot has found a way to inspire our son and teach him in a manner that makes him want to learn more. It's an absolute pleasure to see how your child grows from lesson to lesson.
Ashot is so patient , yet firm with his students. He is also a great psychologist and knows how to inspire each student.
I really recommend Ashot to all my friends who are interested in piano classes.
Also it's a pure pleasure to see our 8 year old son experiencing excitement every time during and after the classes.
He is everything I could have asked for as a Teacher for our son and just a great person."

"We selected Brad Allen because he was using Faber&Faber's Piano Adventures. Since then, my three children have not only excelled in their skills, but they have grown more and more to enjoy playing. Brad is fun and personable and he gives his students the freedom to play the things which will interest them. The amount of practice homework he gives is manageable but still enough to increase their skills. As a parent, I appreciate his flexibility when our schedule gets complicated. I fully trust Brad Allen with the time he spends with my children."

Kristen reported to her mother than she is learning and at a rapid pace. It warms my heart to see Kristen still has interest in learning the piano and is trying. We have had a few piano teachers and Stephanie is really connecting with my daughter. She is also punctual, kind and upbeat. I highly recommend Stephanie."

5 Exercises for Faster Fingers When Teaching Yourself Piano

So you've started piano lessons and you're in it for the long haul... but playing the same exercises over and over again is starting to get boring. We understand. No one goes to the gym and does the same routine day in and day out. Why should you have to trudge your way through the same repetitive piano exercises over and over?

Franz Liszt's Piano Studio Desk & Other Ways Composers Capture Their Ideas

Franz Liszt (1811 – 1886) was a virtuoso pianist and composer, and generally recognized to be the one of the greatest of all time. To help him with his composing, Liszt had a custom desk built which had a small piano keyboard built into the middle drawer. It was built by a manufacturer called Bösendorf, and it is currently on display at the Franz Liszt Museum in Budapest. These days, many aspiring musicians have similar set ups in their compositional studios. We still use the same musi …

Piano Technique Books & How to Use Them

“The most perfect technique is that which is not noticed at all.” ~ Pablo Casals ~  Technique is a paradox. On one hand, if you do not have the technique to play a difficult passage, you cannot master the passage. On the other hand, if you focus on the musical elements and what you are trying to express, the technique to achieve the musicality will come naturally. Those are the two opposing and contradictory thoughts about technique among musicians. Is technique something to be …
