Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

This teacher misrepresented her ability to teach the C system chromatic button accordion. I don't believe that she has ever played one. I asked her before purchasing a set of classes if she knew this instrument and was competent to teach it, and she said she was.

She didn't have one, so she could never demonstrate anything I asked about. She didn't know the key layout. She didn't know the conventions for numbering fingers. She didn't know the basic home key scale pattern.

I waited until I'd finished four classes with my new teacher before writing this so I'd have a good basis for comparison. He is immensely better at teaching this than she was. It further convinced me that she never should have represented herself as competent to teach this particular instrument.

Currently pursuing my second masters degree in opera coaching at UT Austin. Received my first masters degree at the Peabody Conservatory, majoring in Vocal Accompanying with a Bachelor's of Music in classical Piano Performance. Experienced teacher of 10 years, specializing in beginner/intermediate level. All ages are welcome! I will specialize each lesson to each student's needs and will build a strong foundation of note reading, theory and sight-reading! I have access to studios at UT Austin and am usually very flexible with my time. With Covid I am currently offering virtual lessons, hopefully picking up in person in 2021. Let's get started!

I’ve spent a lot of my life struggling through basic piano, and I had no idea why it was so challenging for me! In my very first lesson with Natasha, she helped me overcome obstacles I was completely unaware of. She is a skilled musician with a natural instinct for teaching. She is patient, kind, and extremely thorough.
David
Natasha was a wonderful piano teacher for my daughter! She was always thoughtful and came up with useful practice techniques that helped her improve very quickly. I highly recommend her to anyone!
Jennifer
Natasha is a wonderful piano teacher to my son. I love how much she wants my son to grow within each lesson. She focuses on scales for his technique and is very organized in terms of setting goals for each piece my son has for the week. Highly recommend her for any level of piano, especially for beginners!

I am a personable piano teacher, who is adept at making conservatory-style piano study accessible to the broader public. I'm more than happy to take on beginners or more advanced students, and have a wholistic approach to piano learning, including a study of music theory, sight-reading, and musicianship/musicality. As a pianist who has performed recitals much of my life, is studying for his graduate degree in piano at the Juilliard School of Music, and has taught for many years both privately and collegiately, I have experience and knowledge to help take your piano and performance skills to the next level, in preparation for your own recital, competition, ABRSM examination, college audition, and more.

Hope to meet you soon and begin your piano adventure together!

I hated piano when my parents first started me, I was secretly hoping that one day something terrible would happen to my piano so that the teach never had to come teach me and made me practice like a hamster on the spinning wheel ever again… After years of struggling and lots of tears, I quit.

Little did I know that I would rediscovered that giant instrument in my teen years, falling hopelessly in love with classical music that later I became a professional pianist… I traveled around playing concerts for years, I’ve always enjoyed sharing my passion of music with people, but I couldn’t stop wondering, why did I hated piano so much when I was young? What if my first piano teach didn’t push me too hard? What if there’s a better way to learn piano…etc. Those questions led me to this ultimate idea: maybe I can be a better teacher for what I’ve gone through.

I started full time teaching in 2018 as a piano instructor at Westminster Conservatory. Piano was secondary instrument for most

"We switched instructors three years ago and we have been so pleased with the boys' progress, not only in their ability but also in their understanding of technique and musicality. Daniela has helped them to advance beyond merely playing correctly to playing with understanding, appreciation, expression, and emotion. She doesn't take her students one song at a time through a book, but she helps the kids select a piece they want to learn to master, and then they work until it is played with perfection."

"Ms. Alty is a very patient yet thorough piano teacher. Since we left our hometown for Houston, it's been really difficult getting a piano teacher that matches the same talent as our previous teacher. We had gone through 4 teachers in Houston. However finding Ms. Alty was like finding a rare gem at the top of the mountain.
She is very knowledgeable and has the skills to get a child to listen and actually want to practice. My children have improved tremendously and actually started playing more complicated musical piece.
My children love Ms. Alty and always look forward to having their piano class. I would recommend Ms. Alty if you're looking for a very musically knowledgeable and talented piano teacher who is both firm and gentle when teaching,"
