I've been taking lessons from Steven for I think two years now and he's helped me so much not only in reading music but also in ear training and in my song writing. He's incredibly patient and fun to work with. He also has a really nice cat.

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.

Online Classical Piano Teacher

Hi! My name is Tamara and I am so excited to teach you piano online!

I have been teaching piano for 20+ years both private lessons and group lessons. I am also a certified School Teacher and I enjoy working with children and adults of all ages and ability levels. My experience teaching Music and Band in multiple schools as well as classes on Songwriting have enabled me to develop some fun music programs for my students. My youngest students have been 4 years old up to 70 years old! It's so wonderful to see everyone's unique talents.

My students really enjoy my classes and they tell me all the time how much fun they have! I believe my personal nature, patience, knowledge of music and teaching, as well as sense of humor connect well with all of my students. I love watching their progress and develop ways "outside the box" to teach them musical skills (i.e. developing games, worksheets, goals for the months ahead).

"From the moment I had my phone interview with Paul, I knew he was the right instructor for my son. We met for a trial lesson and sure enough he was exactly what we were looking for. My 12 yr. old has just excelerated in his music reading skills that I could not teach him on my own having started him on the keyboard myself since he was seven but was not successful. Paul is not afraid to stretch him and communicate to him in a way that he pleasantly receives along with weaving music history teaching continuously throughout the lesson. Right out of the gate his technique was addressed and the foundation was set up front and my son has an obvious, beautiful, step above, touch. Very grateful!"

""I am very fortunate to have found Maria. I went through 3 other instructors, all claiming to have their own patented method of teaching piano, but all of them left me frustrated and without clear direction. Maria understands the necessary path. She enlightens and inspires me every week with the timeless beauty of piano. With her by my side, I believe I can realize my dream.""

"Troy is a really patient instructor. I started these lessons as an adult with no prior musical training. I am enjoying the lessons and despite the fact that I never quite have enough time to practice as I should, sometimes even only having the lesson time with him, I still feel I made some progress. I also enjoy the discussions we have on music theory. I am trained as a scientist and when I read theory I have parse it through my own way of thinking about things. I find that Troy is a really good teacher and able to communicate in a manner that is easy to understand. I highly recommend him!"

"Although it has been only 2 months since I started my lessons with Mrs. Heather Lanza, I have witnessed a great difference in my sight reading and my piano playing. She has chosen the textbooks that I just needed, and I think they are of high end rank. In addition, Mrs. Lanza, suggested some supplementary books that I just needed; they have been really useful.

Mrs. Lanza inculcates independence in her students by letting them choose some of their material while assigning them tasks (that will later turn out to be just what they needed).

On a personal level, she is a lady of nice, considerate, understanding and helpful character.

I'm a firm self-study learner; however, I think a good teacher can save the learner a lot of time and effort, and that is what Mrs. Lanza could do well."
