We will work together to develop your musicianship and make learning music fun, regardless of age or musical background. Lessons will be at your pace, tailored to your interests, and, perhaps most importantly, will foster a love and understanding of music.

Students will learn songs they love to play — from any genre — while also developing important skills such as learning how to practice, note reading, rhythm, playing by ear, and technique, as well as songwriting, composing, improvisation, and music theory.

About Summer

My primary goal as a teacher is to make music lessons a positive, life-enriching experience for my students. Above all, our lessons will focus on reaching your musical potential and goals. Lesson curriculum will cover the practical skills you need in order to develop musical fluency, creativity,

I have been studying piano for over ten years and I am a member of the National Music Teacher's Association. I am certified through level 10 (advanced) in the California Certificate of Merit for Piano program. I also play French horn and have my Bachelor's degree in Music, specifically in French horn performance, from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.

My hope in teaching piano lessons is to instill in others the lifelong joy that I have discovered through learning piano. Being able to sit down and create a piece of music is a magical thing that I am excited to pass on to my students! Lessons will be tailored to the individual student's level and goals.

Also important: I strongly recommend having, at the minimum, an 88-key weighted digital piano before signing up for lessons. There are many keyboards you can get for cheaper with less than 88 keys that are non-weighted, but you will not get the same results as you would with a full-sized acoustic or digital piano.

About Ellie

I am a classically trained pianist and French horn player. I have been studying both instruments for 12 years and graduated with my Bachelor's degree in French horn performance from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. I currently work as a freelance musician and teacher in the Pittsburgh, Penns

Ellie is a terrific piano teacher and I highly recommend her. I’m a beginner and she has made piano fun, easy to learn, and continues to layer things on so I can improve. Virtual lessons are no issue. Ellie does a great job of catching the little things so you can continue to improve on all the little details of being a great player.

Ellie is so understanding and an excellent teacher! She is patient, direct, and helps me learn both formal technique and fun music that keeps me motivated to keep playing.

In teaching lessons, it is my great pleasure to share with students of all ages and skill levels the knowledge that I've gained over 27 years of playing. I firmly believe that anyone can learn anything at any time, given the proper tools!

In our first lesson, we will determine your musical goals and create a realistic path to achieving them. It's my job to help you along this path while keeping things fun.

To maintain focus and week-to-week continuity, I always provide lesson notes to take home. I can also provide recordings of lessons and transcriptions of pieces, if desired.

Elias is the best! Such a knowledge and passion of music. He has been my sons guitar instructor going on 5 months. My son has learned so much and always enjoys and looks forward to his lessons. My son is is not only learning guitar but violin as well from him. Fantastic instructor A+
Joni
I am very impressed with Elias! He listened well, offered helpful suggestions, laughed and was very congenial to work with. We discussed how to hold a bow and, since I have some arthritis in my hands, he was very open to other possible options that might work better for me. Taking lessons from him will be a bright spot in my week. I would recommend him in a heart beat!
Gene
A fun and informative lesson. Looking forward to the next one.

I have been teaching piano for over twenty years, with many of my students participating in international competitions and regularly receiving state honors from the Music Teachers' Association of California (MTAC). Teaching is truly more than a career for me - it is a passion that guides my interaction with all of my students, no matter their age and skillset.

If in addition to pursuing piano as a hobby, you would like to participate in the MTAC Certificate of Merit examinations and earn credit for your studies, you are more than welcome to do so. As a member of the MTAC, my students boast a 100% pass rate (with the vast majority receiving perfect scores on both the performance and music theory sections).

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out. Can't wait to meet you! :-)

*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 ...

5 Chess Moves to Up Your Endgame

The end of the game has come. You have successfully out-maneuvered and outfought your opponent, conquering large swaths of the chessboard, and approaching that triumphal moment when you will topple the opponent’s king and declare that he has fallen---in other words, a checkmate (recall that “checkmate” is an anglicization of “shah mat”, Persian for “the king is dead”)… Only to realize that you don’t quite know how to finish the game, which inevitably results in a slapsti …
