I have been teaching the wonderful instrument of the piano for more than seven years.

I utilize the Faber Piano Adventures piano series of lesson books that includes lessons and homework in a fun and engaging way to promote retention. I also use the publication A New Approach to Keyboard Harmony to learn chord progressions, sequences, modulations, realization of both figured and un-figured basses, basic improvisation, and score reading. Learning these techniques will help transition students seamlessly to various styles and genres that incorporate the piano, helping you learn and love the piano without frustrating stoppages that often lead us away from lesson continuity.

From there, for intermediate and advance students I use the Hanon Piano Exercises Book to promote correct and precise fingering, syncopation, arpeggiation, pedaling, and key centering.

Milton is an excellent instructor! He is very knowledgeable, kind, and patient. The guitar curriculum he uses is very good. I have prior musical knowledge in piano, and Milton knows when I need to be challenged/need extra work and when I can breeze through exercises on my new instrument. Lessons are really fun and I always look forward to them. Highly recommended!

I would assess the student's capability and begin with the level appropriate for the student. For new students with no experience, I would start out with simple hand positioning and playing the piano firsthand. We'll learn as we go with fine details of reading notation and techniques. I will introduce one or two subject to cover for each lesson. For students that have more experience and are at the beginner level, I will introduce technical practices and assign a piece of music. As for intermediate and advance, we will cover technical practice, assigned music, and music theory.

Lisa has been a fantastic teacher for our daughter. She is encouraging and supportive, but at the same time has high standards, which is exactly what we were looking for. We particularly enjoy the performance classes she holds at her studio (paused during the pandemic), where we regularly get to hear how well all her students play and the students can encourage each other. We definitely highly recommend her!
Paul
Lisa has been a great teacher for our two kids. She taught them all the way through passing Level 10 with honors in the MTAC program. Our kids were always appreciative that she gave them the freedom in what pieces to learn when choosing among Baroque, Classical, Romantic and Modern pieces. I would highly recommend her.

"Mrs. Bonnie is a wonderful Pianist and teacher. Her methods of teaching has allowed my child with short term memory deficit and ADHD be successful in her goal to play the piano. She is very passionate about her teaching, and it shows in each lesson. As a beginner in piano, she has been able to keep her interest by helping her play songs that she likes and listens to on the radio. This means a lot to my daughter. If you are looking for a piano teacher I highly recommend Mrs. Bonnie."

He tries to teach me amazing, new songs, which are a little challenging, but when he helps me, it seems kind of easy. I know my sight-reading is kinda bad, but sometimes his help makes me go through it with ease. Thank you for teaching me and being one of the best instructors I have ever had!"

"Joi taught my 7 year old twins beginning piano for a year. Although my twins are identical, she delivered individual instruction that always challenged them at their learning frontier. They both were provided an amazing level of music foundation from rhythm to sight reading and more. Unfortunately, she moved and we moved but if she were close to us, she would still be teaching our girls. We loved the in-home instruction option. She is truly a gem. Very highly recommend."

"Great arrangement for us

I had been looking for a new piano teacher for my son, even though he was less enthusiastic about starting up lessons again. After his first lesson with Mary, he was looking forward to playing more. She's taking him back to the basics in a totally different teaching philosophy that he's really responding to. She works in music theory and because he's strong in math, he's responding better than with teachers in the past. He enjoys playing now and it shows when I hear him practice. We love this arrangement and I look forward to his progress with Mary."

How to Mimic the Practice Habits of Collegiate Piano Students

Practice - it’s something that most developing pianists generally dread.  But there is a place where practice time is a precious commodity - the music conservatory.  During my time as an undergraduate piano major, signing up and getting time to reserve a practice room was a ritual in patience, cunning, and bargaining. Because there were limited spaces for students to obtain the time they needed to prepare for tests, juries, and performances, every moment to prepare at a piano was preci …
