Hi Everyone!

Thank you for choosing my profile. My name is Maggie and I am a Polish/ Ukrainian/Belgian pianist. I come from family of musicians and painters and as long as I remember I play the piano, harpsichord, sing and compose. My parents own a piano school in Europe so thanks to that I started teaching already 15 years ago. Since then I have been teaching my own piano and voice students in the Bay area. I can teach beginners, medium level and advanced students of all ages but I also can prepare you for concerts or competitions if needed. My pupils perform at least twice a year. A little about myself: I have three Master Degrees in music from universities in Europe and USA . I speak English, French, Russian and Polish. I hope you will have fun learning music with me! Please write a quick intro about yourself and what would you like to learn this year. Thank you!

Online Classical Piano Teacher

I am a professional pianist with a bachelor’s and master’s degree from the Juilliard School, and currently working on my Doctoral of Musical Arts at Manhattan School of Music. I have worked with several world-renowned pianists including Robert McDonald, Horacio Gutierrez, and Haesun Paik. Their influence not only helped me develop as a pianist but also taught me how to teach and showed me the impact of truly masterful teacher can have on their students.

I serve as a piano faculty member at Bronx Conservatory of Music and Lindeblad School of Music, in addition to teaching private students. I have taught students at varying levels of experience and from varying backgrounds, ranging from 4-year-old to adult. Some of them had their very first piano lesson with me and others are promising concert pianists at Juilliard pre-college.

I have been immersed in music schools and music training my entire life, and through the years I have learned what teaching methods are effective and which ...

I like that Ms. Julie can be both kind and challenging. My son always comes out of his lesson sounding better and excited to learn more, which for me as a parent is the most I can hope for. I have also heard her play and wow - she is the real deal! I'm so glad we found her, and would definitely recommend her to anyone!

Julie never yells, is always kind, incredibly patient, knows her stuff, challenges you when its time to be challenged, keeps you on your toes, and, you're guaranteed to learn a new joke AND a new piece of music! Dr. Julie is the Best Piano Instructor Ever!!

Ms. Julie is a very sweet instructor. She’s been with my son for over a year now and he has improved in piano tremendously. I fully recommend her, very responsible, sweet and understanding.

"Gabriel is amazing. He visits you in your home and is very experienced and focused on training classical piano. I’ve learned a lot so far and he has been focusing on teaching me on skills where I lack.

My 6 year old son and I are both students and love him!

It’s the same for my son. He has been teaching my son sight reading and the importance of practicing every day. I can already see an improvement!"

"Having a strong musical background (20+ years), I was stoked when my boyfriend told me he wanted to improve his piano playing. Let me rephrase that--LEARN how to play piano. He had bought a piano three years earlier and never played it.

He had NO natural musically ability, barely being able to hold a beat let alone understand time and key.

He started lessons in Berkeley for three months and didn't seem to improve, then we found Fawn and signed up for lessons, even though I was skeptical about it being online. Within a month of playing, he was understanding the foundation of music, improv, ect., and Fawn REALLY pushed him. 15 months later he has a solid playing and reading ability, even though his work only allows him 1-2 hours a week of practice. Fawn is teaching both the fundamentals plus improve, scales, etc. that really push him to be a better piano player. She encourages him to chose pieces he loves as well. Soon they will start songwriting. I am thoroughly impressed."

Stan's music instruction is not limited to reading and playing; he has an amazing wealth of knowledge and experience that makes it so interesting for the students (and for the parent that sits in on the lesson!). I can't recommend Stan highly enough."

"Laurel taught my kids piano lessons for several years. When she moved away, she proved impossible to replace! She really cared about the kids' learning. For example, when my son seemed to connect better with the process and logic behind the music, she got him started composing his own! Both kids benefited greatly from Laurel's teaching and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a piano teacher."
