Private Piano Teacher

Piano lessons are strictly for beginners or for students who have little to no training. The first few lessons are dedicated to learning the proper playing technique and practicing several exercises to increase the hand’s coordination, flexibility, and mobility. Once the proper technique has been established we move on to Suzuki method and a series of Etudes catered to the student’s learning needs.

About Alethia

Growing up I was raised in a home full of music. My father, a graduate of the Conservatorio Nacional Superior de Musica (National conservatory of Superior Music) played piano day and night and from there my love for music blossomed. My first experience with music was at the age of 8 when I began to

She is a great instructor! My 14 yr old daughter is a beginner and she has been wonderful with her. She is professional, warm, and always helpful. I don't know much about the violin, but I never have to remind my daughter to practice the music that she is given.
Emmerson (Emme) N.
Alethia is great. She is working with my 7 yr. old daughter as a beginner in violin. She teaches in a way that is fun, appropriate, and respectful. My daughter has already learned so much and looks forward to her lessons with Alethia each week.

Hello!

My name is Jessica. I love teaching, and adore my students.

I specialize in Voice, Piano, Ukulele, and Steel Drums.

I am energetic, excited, and love teaching the kind of music that makes my students excited, whether they love Taylor Swift, Willie Nelson, or Kendrick Lamar. I love creating songs with students as they learn to express themselves.

I can teach students how to read music, how to play by ear, how to play songs they love, and how to make each song their own.

I cater my lesson style to each individual person. I gauge where they are at and their personality style and respond in a personalized way to help them grow their passion for music and get some serious skills.

If you are looking for a highly regimented instructor who is very serious, I am not the one for you!

About Jessica

Hi! My name is Jessica If you're looking for an enthusiastic teacher who loves her students (and may be a little bit nerdy), look no further! I teach voice, piano, ukulele, and steel drums. Pasta, my dogs, and the color green are all the greatest things in life. Music is a personal journe

Such an amazing teacher. I'm a beginner and she makes it very easy and fun.

Jessica is an amazing teacher! A few months ago I was having trouble learning the ukulele and I decided to start lessons with her. It was a great decision because ever since then I have learned way more than I could on YouTube! She is everything you want in a teacher, so helpful, supportive, fun, easy going, and kind. She has brought me so much further as a player and now I can write songs, have learned 15 of my favorite songs, am learning how to combine my instrument with others on my computer, and understand music so much more than ever. Thank you Jessica:)

He's a good guy.
I'm not young, and I'm hard to teach music theory to, but he was patient, and is helping me figure a way into learning important stuff that I find kinda dry and not fun to practice. (I'm a good player, but music theory is very challenging to me.)

My daughter enjoyed the first lesson very much! Looking forward to more!

Online Piano Teacher

To paraphrase Johann Sebastian Bach: "Playing the piano is easy...all you have to do is play the right notes...." Seriously, whether you're just beginning, or whether you've been studying piano for years, playing the piano is a lot more fun and rewarding than playing Pokémon GO...and it will keep you out of trouble and out of other peoples' backyards.

About Lawrence

Lawrence loves to teach music, especially piano and organ. He began studying the piano at age 5; by age 12 he was studying the pipe organ and performing at church services in his hometown of Springfield, Illinois. A graduate of the Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan and the University of Massa

"I wish I had half the energy and enthusiasm that Randy had; both for music and life. He has been teaching our daughter for a little less than a year now, and she is flourishing. His approach is not for everyone. If you're looking for a very traditional, classical teacher, that's as strict as a nun with no personality, then Randy's not for you. He has the talent and education chops to teach the classical method, but you get so much more when he opens up to his approach.

He makes our daughter feel empowered to try new things and not give up. Creativity and exploration over perfectionism and memorization.

I highly recommend Randy, but only if you want to learn music and have fun."
