I have been playing classical piano since 1960 and started with ten years of private classical instruction. I have taught classical piano full time since 1998, including music theory, proper hand and finger technique and methods to enhance ear training and ease of playing classical compositions.

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

The most fulfilling part of being a teacher is leaving your students feeling more capable and empowered than they were before. I'm not satisfied if you're not satisfied, so you can trust that I will bring my best to every lesson. I've been teaching piano in San Francisco for three years now (and teaching trumpet for 10+) and have my masters in music composition from San Francisco Conservatory of Music. I have specialized training in piano technique and pedagogy because of teaching at different professional studios throughout the bay area. I integrate movement and games to bring energy into each lesson and create memorable experiences for ages 5+.

I focus on training these aspects:
• Literacy (fluency in being able to read music)
• Skill-Building Mindset and Tools
• Music Theory
• Ear-Training
• Technique
• Music Appreciation
• Improvisation and composition

About Roxanne

My biggest concern whenever I give a lesson is "am I providing value to this person? Is this what they need? Is there anything else I can do?". Teaching is a huge gift and responsibility. I get to know my student's lives, personalities, interests, goals, and learn from my experiences from them.

Ms. Roxanne is a wonderful teacher with fun and inspiring tricks up her sleeve. She is able to captivate the imagination of young minds and help them achieve a consistent learning experience. I am so impressed by how effective her teaching methods are in keeping young restless minds interested in learning music. Roxanne's lessons are playful which is perfect for kids and adults alike. She creates fun musical games and creates funny stories and characters around musical concepts to help children remember. This is so much more fun than just plain memorizing! She even invents new games for individual children based on their own personal interests; recently she came up with a treasure hunt game in a young boy's backyard to help him learn about rhythm. Her YouTube channel keeps kids excited for the next lesson with creative and kid-friendly videos. She truly is an ingenious music teacher. I cannot recommend her enough to inspire you and your children in the way of music.

Private Classical Piano Teacher

Hello,
my name is Anna and I am a piano/ vocal/ music theory teacher. I graduated from the Rimsky Korsakov College of Music, Saint Petersburg and now I continue to educate people in the music field in California. I have big experience in working with children and adults, combing Piano and Vocal technique to develop general musicality.
Although I have a solid theoretical and performance background, my lessons are not " your childhood boring nightmare". I want my students to feel the music not as "the most difficult and useless thing I've ever learnt" but as useful, beautiful and fun life skill!
All ages and levels are welcome!

Online Classical Piano Teacher

Teacher for two years experienced in beginner to intermediate students. I generally start my classes by seeing what the students will benefit the most and start helping the student increase their ability to play the piano using a variety of exercises and having them choose a piece of their choice to work on. If the student wants to learn more than just piano, I'm also a composer that can help them understand more about music and beyond the instrument itself.

Online Classical Piano Teacher

Teaching of classical music requires proper learning of piano technique. I teach technique through a series of books covering 5 years of study. I supplement this with classical pieces (recital pieces) for each level as well as studies in technique from Hanon, Czerny, and others. In addition, I include sample works from all periods, Baroque, Classical, Romantic, Post Romantic, Modern.

"I’ve been delighted with my lessons with Semyon from day one. I had studied classical piano as a child but took a hiatus of several decades, and was somewhat nervous about starting up again. Semyon has put me at ease, and is so enthusiastic and encouraging, it’s contagious. He also has a focus on technique that I was looking for (scales and Hanon so far, which I know I need!). He knows his stuff but doesn’t overwhelm me with too much too soon. As an adult student, I couldn’t be more pleased with my choice and highly recommend him."
