Playing piano is fun! So should your piano lessons.

I've taught piano since I was in high school, and continued to teach while I was a student at Cornell University. I also taught theory classes in the Cornell Piano Society, where I served as President for 4 years.

Why? I simply love music, piano, and sharing it with others.

While I'm classically trained, I've dabbled into other genres, such as Jazz, Rock, Pop, R&B, songwriting, and music production / audio engineering. I've recently been accepted into the Steinway & Sons (the piano makers) Teacher Partnership Program. Feel free to message me for more details!

I love teaching piano. In my eight years of experience, I've learned several piano methods, and I've developed my own approach which balances playing, listening, and analyzing music. My students have told me they appreciate me for my clear, simple way of explaining things, my enthusiasm, and the personal attention I give to each student. My primary goal is to train well-rounded musicians, and offer the benefits that entails, such as discipline, critical-thinking, and creativity.

Private Classical Piano Teacher

I studied classical piano with 4 different high-caliber teachers for 6 years, and have taught at over 100 students to attain solid technique and proficiency. Skill levels I work with range from the complete beginner all the way up through advanced classical music repertoire.

Lessons are always a balance of fun and hard work, spontaneity and consistent practice, communication and challenge. I teach a combination of technique, with an emphasis on musical style and help to cultivate good practice habits. I also facilitate workshops and recitals to enable my students to perform in front of others.

About Peter

Whether piano, voice, songwriting/composition, music theory or music production, I bring all that I have learned and developed as a musician to the lesson in the interest of the student’s growth. Whether we work in classical, jazz, or pop, We focus on what will directly fit your individual goal

Peter has a great rapport with our daughter and is "meeting" her where she is in her interests. She loves Lord of the Rings--they've started on music from Lord of the Rings!
Wick A.
Great instructor. Friendly, easy to understand, talented and can teach piano, theory, composition, etc.
Susan
My 10 year old son loves playing little riffs on the piano but really didn't want lessons for fear it would be too much like school. Peter has been awesome about tailoring the lessons so that my son can choose the Music he likes and move forward from his place of interest. Peter is a skilled and gifted pianist, and my son is totally inspired to keep playing and put in the work to improve.

Hi, my name is Tanya and I have been teaching piano lessons since I was just 16 years old! What started as a fun activity during my childhood, turned into a lifelong passion.

Heather has been a wonderful teacher for my kids (age 8 and 12). She's patient and clear, she motivates them to practice, and they are learning a lot and progressing well. Highly recommend!
Evan C.
My son had his first piano lesson ever with Heather this past week. She was very friendly, encouraging and had good positive energy all around. A good fit! While I didn't listen in every minute, it seemed that she was teaching him some basics in a way that was motivating and fun. He enjoyed his lesson and has been motivated to practice ever since. I am so happy! We're looking forward to more great lessons. So far so good!

"I played piano for 13 years, from ages 5 to 18, and then just stopped when I went away to college. I had aptitude for the instrument but did not have the discipline to sit down and practice. Fast forward 17 years, and I get intimidated just looking at a piano! I realized if I ever wanted to play again I'd have to find an instructor. It was so easy to find Evelyn via Red Pelican Music, and I started classes right away. It was a little frustrating to start from square one, but I know I really had to (I'd forgotten so much!). Evelyn was always encouraging and knew exactly what I needed to hear and learn. She also knew just when to introduce actual classical pieces instead of having me focus on the beginner books with short pieces and music theory. I love working with her and have made so much progress in the <6 months we have been working together. I would highly recommend her to any beginner or to someone re-starting as a beginner. And, of course, she's a highly accomplished pianist, so any skilled pianists looking for instruction would benefit from her teaching."

"When I came to Sandra I was one month away from my college piano audition and in need of a miracle. I had to prepare four quite difficult pieces and I had not taken any piano lessons since I was 12 years old (over 6 years). I knew this sounded very impossible but I went for it anyway. A month later, I got accepted into the Piano Performance program. So basically, Sandra is a miracle worker. She didn't only help me ace these pieces from scratch and learn the proper way and style to play them in, but she also helped me record my audition tapes and let me use her piano for them. She took her own personal time to give me extra help so I could get into this university and she was always supportive and caring too. Not only is she a piano master, but she is also extremely nice so every lesson was very pleasant and enjoyable. My piano skills greatly improved in just a month and I cannot thank her enough for everything she's helped me achieve. So if you are looking for an amazing piano teacher, you just found her! Seriously, look no further, you will not be disappointed."

"We are extremely pleased with Jonathan's piano instruction! He designed a tailored curriculum for our daughter, and she has been learning a tremendous amount through their lessons. He has a very comprehensive teaching perspective that promotes excellence in musicality, technical skills, and historical context; his high level of academic knowledge and performance experience combine to provide an exceptionally valuable learning opportunity. Our daughter is always delighted with their lessons, and she especially likes how Jonathan thoughtfully interprets the compositions as he plays. She says that his example and ideas help her to become a better musician because they deepen her understanding of the pieces and show her how much is possible when they are performed. On numerous occasions, she has been excited to share techniques, diagrams, and recommendations they covered during their lessons! We have noticed a dramatic increase in her sensitivity to tone and dynamics over the course of their sessions. Our daughter has also described how helpful it is to hear his explanations about the characteristics of different musical periods and the influence they have on specific compositions. Jonathan is a truly dedicated instructor who is willing to go the extra mile for his students. He has selected beautiful music that is well-suited to our daughter's interests and educational needs, and it has been a joy to hear her practicing the pieces with enthusiasm! She is thriving under his instruction because his teaching style is sensitive to the needs of the pupil -- full of new and fascinating material, paced at just the right speed, and always ready to provide encouragement. We give Jonathan's outstanding lessons our very highest recommendation for students of all ages!"
