Experienced piano teacher for 20+ years, available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation in their playing skills. I specialize in teaching as early as 3 yrs old, I typically use different methods of teaching, no specific curriculum, it depends on students' personality, cognitive development, age level. I use online piano games & teaching tools to help students develop the habit of practicing with more fun.

I do recitals at least twice a year, & that includes Community Recitals, Students participates to different programs & festivals sponsored by CAPMT District 1, National Federation of Music Clubs & Music Development Program by Royal Conservatory of Music to assess their knowledge, skills & abilities.

My daughter has been taking piano lessons with Ms. Sally for a year and a half now and it is great to see her progress. Ms. Sally is very knowledgeable, patient and easy to talk to. She encourages you to stay and watch during practice so you are aware of what is being taught.
Remy
I chose Sally to teach my granddaughter the fundamentals of piano playing and she's done a amazing job . I have to commend Ms. Sally on her knowledge and patience on her teaching ability. I would highly recommend Ms.Sally to any of my friends and or relatives
Kaitlin Oliveri
Sally has truly been the most wonderful instructor! I started taking lessons a few months ago with her. I played piano when I was younger but I wanted to get back into playing before my twins arrive. I am almost 8 months pregnant at this point and Sally has been kind, compassionate and so helpful in helping me remember the piano skills I didn't know I had in me and haven't used in many years. She challenged me, taught me things I never learned when I was younger and helped me improve across every lesson. I'd highly recommend Sally as a piano instructor for all ages and skill levels and I look forward to working with her again in the future!

Patty is a great teacher who takes pride in her work. She spent plenty of time making sure I understood the lessons, and made sure I was doing the homework and practicing between lessons.

To give a quick recommendation: My son started piano lessons with Patty a couple weeks ago and LOVES it! He’s 5 and is a very active little boy, but he sits still, listens and has really enjoyed it so far! Patty has been a great teacher

My daughter enjoyed working with Lia. She was patient, fun and helped build my daughter's confidence when she made mistakes and needed to try again. She was an absolute pleasure to work with!
Sue
LIa is the right fit for my high school student. My daughter has been taking classic piano lessons since 4 years old. She has been looking for an instructor who will allow her to develop her creative side.

Lia customizes her lessons and has reignited my daughters love of piano.

Thanks, Lia.
Tony
Both of my daughters love to sing. We signed up for lessons so they could learn their favorite pop songs; one of my daughters also took piano. They've learned how to hit notes easier and how to properly warm up; Lia is great at finding fun ways to keep them engaged while also still learning. The combination of piano and voice for my youngest has been really valuable. I highly recommend Lia for your lessons!

"My son Jean-David, who was then 10 years old, took lessons with Anna during six months (the duration of our stay in South Bend) and he had much pleasure to follow these lessons and practise the piano every day. Anna made him play various styles of music and she corrected him well. Even if Jean-David knew only a few words in English (we are Swiss and he was used to speak French), he could understand what she explained. Anna had expactations, but she was also encouraging and friendly. I recommend her warmly."

"” Anyone can teach..but very few can inspire. Anyone can show your hands which notes to play, but very few can give your heart wings. Faye W. is a gifted music teacher who does more than give lessons.. she inspires her students to play from the heart and to connect the notes on a page with the dreams and desires the music brings to life. Aunty Faye, as we affectionately call her, will always be the music teacher who taught my children the love of music, the delight of laughter and the joy that playing the piano from your heart. It is with great appreciation that I write this recomendation to all future students that may be looking for more than just a piano teacher.. Faye is someone who will gently lead her students on the delightful journey of learning both the disciplines and the inspiration to play music from the heart.. A rare gift indeed .. We will miss you … our Dear Aunty Faye.”

"I had piano lessons with Ardalan. His talent in playing piano along with his broad knowledge in music had made him a very professional and trustworthy teacher. Moreover, Ardalan is a Medical Doctor and always teaches you how to play piano to not hurt muscles and joints which is very important for beginner players who just started to form their style. He is kind and takes time to design the best teaching program which suites you the best. However, he is serious about the exercises you have to do during the week. Also, he is very organized, he is on time and never cancels the classes and doesn't allow you to cancel the class because of not practicing :)"
