Classical piano is a subject I have taught for over twenty (20) years. As a classically-trained pianist, it has been my main area of focus throughout my teaching and performing careers. If you wish to focus on classical piano, we will cover in-depth music theory during our classes, which is a required component for success in classical piano.

*Please Note*
Online-only piano classes are only available to students who have prior experience. I do not recommend complete beginners to start fully online, as there are beginners' nuances that are much better addressed in-person!

Ms. Ozawa,
Is a wonderful teacher. She observes and evaluates a student's skills and then discusses with you areas that need improvement. She teachers students how to use breathing and piano together. Overall I am so happy I found her and was able to learn all the basic from her. I have been to a few other teachers in the past and did not get from them what she taught me. She taught me how to understand music better and how appreciate such a wonderful art.
Holly W.
My first lesson went well. Tomoko is very patient. Even in one lesson, I felt I learned a lot. She finds out what level you're at to save time and plays to your interests. I look forward to more lessons.

Raymond is a nice and a great teacher for our 11 yr old grandson. He is patient and fun. But he gets our grandson to focus when GS gets distracted. I feel that Raymond is teaching wholeheartedly and really it’s up to the student with how far and fast he wants to go.

Nils is a capable teacher with clearly evident musical experience. I have been taking lessons from him for about 3 months now. He is particularly gifted at interpreting how a work should be played based on how it sounds or has been performed in the past, a skill he brings to bear for his students.
Richard H.
Awesome instructor! Patient, encouraging, very knowledgeable. Highly recommend!

Nils is an extremely knowledgeable and accomplished instructor. He has extraordinary patience and excellent teaching skills. Coming from an adult student with high expectations, Nils has constantly delivered instructional value far beyond beyond what my paid "app" lessons were able to teach me. I highly recommend you give Nils a shot if you want to take your guitar playing to the next level.

"Awesome Teacher!

I've been playing since I was 6. As a teacher myself, however, I often devoted more time to my students' practice than to my own. My goal in taking lessons with Eric was to get back the technique, fluidity and creativity that I used to have.

In the first month alone, my fluidity was back and my technique was well on the way to being what it once was.

He reminded me of practice routines that I'd long forgotten and drills that I would have my students do that I had since stopped doing.

His knowledge of the fretboard and theory is amazing and his ability to relate that knowledge even more so.

Definitely worth it!"
