After teaching for several years and seeing what works best for students, I've learned that the best way to teach piano is to first teach you the patterns that are in music. We couple that with learning piano fingering patterns, how to read music, and a little bit about the different styles and techniques of piano. I can teach you to do virtually anything you can dream of with the instrument in what typically is about a 6 month process. :)

awesome instructor!
Jennifer
I studied under Leilah for several years and I couldn't have asked for a better teacher. She was my first teacher; she showed me the basics of cello and taught me in Suzuki books 1-6. One thing Leilah does that not many cello teachers do is play with her students. At my lessons, Leilah always had her cello out and was ready to demonstrate a technique or playing style, which helped immensely with my understanding of music. Having Leilah as a teacher has given me the skills and preparation I need to play in college. I would recommend her to any cello student who is willing to work hard to improve.

Ms. Leilah has an in depth understanding of the Suzuki Method but also uses many inventive ideas to make lessons fresh and motivating!

"Great with kids!

We have been with Raymond for over a year now and love him! Started out with my 4 year old son wanting to learn guitar. Every instructor we went to said he was too young. Mr. Raymond took the time to interview him and took him on as a student. My son goes to his lesson once a week and still is keeping interest and has fun playing guitar. Now 5, he has far surpassed my lack of skills. I am thinking about starting classes so I can keep up with him. Now my 7 year old daughter has started piano lessons with him right after my sons lesson and she loves it as well. Thank you for all the patience! When Mr. Raymond gets to playing that Spanish Guitar....its music to my ears!"

Balances core exercises, scales (including note reading homework), and music playing. We've already started playing songs together which really helps me hear the notes better!"

"I wish I had found Mike sooner!

I tried to learn banjo on my own. Bought books, instruction CDs, videos on You Tube. It just wasn't happening for me - I was about ready to give it up. Met Mike at a Bluegrass event and after just a few lessons I was really moving forward! After a few months he had me going to Bluegrass Jam Sessions. Wow is that fun!

Mike is very patient and non-judgmental. He easily accomodates my work schedule. While he is a fine banjo player himself - our lessons are always about me and how to improve my playing. I always look forward to our next lesson."

"My son and I have been taking piano lessons from Corinne for almost a year. She is a lovely person, extremely patient and dedicated to teaching. She genuinely cares about her students. Corinne is quite gifted working with young children as well as adults. I took piano lessons as a child, and she immediately assessed where to resume instruction. She took a totally different approach with my six year old son, who had no experience. Even though he had just started to read and write in school, she used a very understandable, age- appropriate method with him. He is now playing the piano while reading basic music at the same time. She knows exactly how much and how hard to gently push, in order to encourage improvement each week. Corinne is also very professional, dependable, punctual and takes the time you spend with her seriously. I highly recommend Corinne as a piano teacher. We enjoy our lessons immensely."

5 Games for Teaching Kids Piano

Piano is considered an umbrella instrument, meaning, teaching kids to play piano helps them understand music more thoroughly, no matter what instrument they want to play later on. Even most singers first learn the basics of music theory and notation on the piano. Piano lessons at an early age lay out the basics of music-making in black and white (quite literally!). The great news is that you don't need to know anything about playing piano to inspire your children to want to learn. Below are a ha …
