I've been taking lessons from Steven for I think two years now and he's helped me so much not only in reading music but also in ear training and in my song writing. He's incredibly patient and fun to work with. He also has a really nice cat.

I've been teaching piano for 10 years. Within the first few lessons students will be able to read basic music notation and as time goes on they will be able to confidently play beginning songs of their own choosing. I typically use Alfred or Faber books which builds playing skills and teaches music theory.

About Rhonda

I have always had a love for music. From all the music trivia games my family won't play with me, to my large collection of records, cassettes, and CDs - I am hooked! I made my solo performance debut at age 7 by singing "It's A Small World" acapella in a school talent show. At age 9 I started

My daughter loves to play with teacher Eleonora. She’s been practicing with her since the past two years and cannot be happier as for results and focus. Eleonora is very patient, attentive, professional and with a fun approach that makes kids at ease and get ready to play.
Tzipora
Eleanora is a patient, kind, warm, and very professional teacher. She is everything you could possible hope for. She adjusted her pace to meet my schedule and kept me on track with a firm but gentle approach. She has reaffirmed my love for music and taught me things (such as improvisation) which I never imagined I could do. In just a few lessons, I feel like I have come so far with Eleanora!
Judith
Eleanor is professional, but also someone I can really relax with. She is calm, patient and really knows what she is doing. My goals for playing harp music are not standard, and she instantly adapted and stepped in just where I wanted to be with my instruction.

Lessons are "serious fun," balancing a supportive and encouraging environment with rigor and attention to detail throughout the learning process. I teach students according to how they would like to develop: beginning to advanced classical piano instruction, worship song and hymn lead sheet/chord chart reading, and new popular music styles.

Learning to play the piano, like learning any musical instrument, is rewarding, both in the short term and the long term. It is challenging, at times, both in a physically and an intellectually demanding way. Successful piano students must learn perseverance when faced with difficulties, discipline in practicing daily, and attention to detail in learning to read and interpret music. Most of all, the music matters most: loving and sharing the expression of beauty, power, nuance, complexity, and simplicity.

I recommend that all piano students listen. Listen on YouTube, go to live concerts, subscribe to Apple Music or YouTube Music. Drink-in ...

Hannah has done an excellent job working with our 9 year old daughter. She's very encouraging and patient. I like her emphasis on the fundamentals, and how she communicates these concepts to a child. Our daughter always looks forward to her online lessons.

Hannah clearly has had an abundance of experience working with kids. She did a great job introducing best practices in singing, How to take care of your voice, and even balancing the goals she is setting for Lucy with music and activities that Lucy wants to do. Overall, we are impressed and looking Girard to Lucy's next lesson.

"Dynamite Teacher

Steve is a very good and extremely patient teacher. As much as I may dislike learning theory, Steve knows how to bring it all together so that it makes sense...like a light bulb suddenly switched on in my head. All those pieces put together suddenly become songs I recognize. I highly recommend Steve to anyone wanting to learn from a very personable teacher."
