Ms. Judy is a patient, friendly, and an encouraging instructor. My six year old has enjoyed her lessons and have complimented Judy’s encouraging teaching style. We had an in person local instructor, but due to the pandemic she was not able to resume teaching lessons. Judy conducted an assessment and began where the other instructor ended without missing a beat! I am grateful for her sharing her gift and talent with my child.

Hannah is a lovely person to be with and a really nice teacher. She helped me understand my drawings from a different point of view, she helped me figure out resources to make my drawings better and she gave me some ideas about how to weave the words into my drawings. They were excellent ideas and I felt invigorated and refreshed when I left.

John, Is a knowledgeable and friendly drum teacher that is eager to help you reach your drum performance goals. Being a guitar player first, my lessons with John have been at a sporadic beginner pace as I attempt to generate time for both worlds. That being said John has been very patient and accommodating, and I'm sure he will help me dial in my drum skills.

Online Piano Teacher

Heather’s goal is to provide a safe, fun environment for adults and children alike to grow in their love for and ability to play classical music. Along with classical music, she also encourages pursuing individual interests, such as learning how to compose, learning how to play music from guitar chords, and learning pieces the student picks out.

Growth in musical abilities does require consistent practice. Heather helps the students set clear, doable goals to make practice easier. If the student is a child, she will also work with the parents to set appropriate goals. These goals will often include performing in a recital, audition, or other competition. Performing helps push the student to the next level, allows them to share their love of music with others, and teaches them confidence in front of people.

About Heather

Heather has been teaching piano since 2012 and is currently available to teach in-home and online lessons. Heather’s main focus is classical piano, but she has also helped students learn how to compose and play by ear. Her students have won college scholarships and participated in the National Audi

Heather is a fantastic piano teacher! I highly recommend her! My daughters loved learning piano with her and learning how to read notes has been extremely beneficial!
Bonnie
My son began taking piano lessons from Heather during High School. It looked like so much fun that I eventually asked her to teach me as well. Heather is a pleasant and patient teacher. She has a depth of knowledge and an ability to teach music that motivated both my son and me to practice in order to play our pieces well. Those times are good memories that I won’t forget.
Stephanie
Heather is an excellent piano teacher. She has instructed my 6 children (currently age 9-18) weekly for several years in a wide range of music, classical, jazz, contemporary, etc... She is a highly talented communicator and pianist, with a pleasant disposition.
Her students are proud to say she is their teacher.

Really happy to have Mrs. Kamilla as our instructor! She always spends time emphasizing the core basics of piano including posture, and technique. Highly recommend her as an instructor!
Trina
Ms. Kamiila is a great teacher that I have never met. The first time I saw she played piano for students to sing and helped students practice before their Christmas' s rehearsal, I know she will be the best teacher for my son. Her passion for music is unbelievable. My seven year old son has been her student for over three month now. I can see his improvement and enjoy in learning piano more. She is a very patient and nice teacher. She also pays attention to details about his poster and how to use his hands correctly, which I think it is very important for the first piano learner. She is very organized. She always informed me as a parent the lesson my son learned each session and emailed me his homework. Teacher is always the most important for the kids, so I would highly recommend Ms Kamiila to you. She is the best teacher, and your kids will love to be her students.
