Private Classical Piano Teacher

I grew up being trained classically, and although I value the skills I learned from classical training, I realized that I did miss out on the other aspect of learning piano skills. Those skills include improvisation, creativity, song-writing, and much more! I purposefully incorporate more than just sheet music reading while also trying to make reading music more accessible and relatable. Each student also has different individual goals with piano playing that I think are of utmost importance in the way I teach.

I am a pianist, singer, choral director and lover of many different genres of music from classical and jazz to musical theatre and indie/folk. I graduated from John Brown University in Siloam Springs, Arkansas with a Bachelor's of Music Education, emphasis in Piano. If you are studying voice with

Jenna is a great fit for our two teenage beginners! She is lively and upbeat, well organized, moves at a pace appropriate for their age, incorporates music which interests them, presents a great blend of playing and theory, and holds them accountable to practice assignments. We are very grateful to have her for an instructor!
Louis M.
Jenna has helped me improve so much since I've been taking lessons from her. She is very detailed and will break everything down for you. In the amount of time of my lessons I have become a lot more confident and am not nervous to play and sing in front of others now. She really cares about her students and will push you to be the absolute best you can be. All around down to earth good person and a bad to the bone teacher.

Ruthy has been a great instructor. I started with her knowing very little about the piano. I have been working with her once a week and am seeing great improvement. I am learning notes, chords, and understand music. She makes learning fun and helps you to achieve playing songs that you really like and enjoy.

"I received classical piano lessons from Dr. Backus for almost two years before college. In those two years, I grew so much in my playing and in my love for music. Dr. Backus has a deep passion for music and her students. In my lessons, Dr. Backus incorporated extensive knowledge about music history, theory and technique. Our goal was to build knowledge and technique so that I could freely create and make a beautiful sound with each piece. After taking lessons from her, I LOVE the piano. Dr. Backus taught me how to express music from my heart, and it was a privilege to learn from her and know her. I would highly recommend her for piano lessons!"

""I am very fortunate to have found Maria. I went through 3 other instructors, all claiming to have their own patented method of teaching piano, but all of them left me frustrated and without clear direction. Maria understands the necessary path. She enlightens and inspires me every week with the timeless beauty of piano. With her by my side, I believe I can realize my dream.""

We took lessons before from another company and my granddaughter was never excited about going. Now she is excited,she has even put in to be in the talent show at her school.

Just because you are an excellent musician does not necessarily translate into an excellent teacher, but her grasp of the pedagogy is clear.

"I was recommended to take lessons with Anahit Sevoyan from a colleague and from the first class I understood why he was so excited and confident about her as a professional instructor. She is a wonderful pianist and when taking lessons, one must have someone to look up to. I went from being a mediocre, hopeless amateur to seeing significant change in my technique and have to admit, for the first time I am confident in pursuing music professionally. Aside from her ability to teach and deliver the material, she is pleasant, punctual and very kind. She knows the repertoire and different musical styles, gives me and other students insight into teaching as well as performing. She truly brings out the best in her students. I highly recommend her to anyone who is serious about learning to play the piano and especially, thinking of pursuing it as a career."
