Private Classical Piano Teacher

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.

Nicholas has been teaching my daughter vocal lessons for about 11 months and he’s fantastic!

She’s improved so much in 10 months! He’s awesome and delivers results! My daughter enjoys her lessons with him and she’s just 9 years old and has developed so much due to his mentor ship. My daughter also has an aptitude for singing and tends to catch on to his instructions quickly.

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!

About Marwan

15 years ago, I started learning the piano and began my life-long pursuit of music. This pursuit has led me in a wide variety of directions. Today, I am currently a doctoral student at Wheaton Graduate School and hope to teach others the joy of playing the piano in my free time.

I have a passion for a wide variety of styles of music. For several years, I played professionally for weddings, shows, and musicals. I have led worship for churches in Michigan and Connecticut. At Yale, I was president of an organization called Yale Musical Cure, in which I played piano in hospitals, hospices, and charity concerts. While at Yale, I also studied theory, piano, sight-singing, and composition.

My teaching style varies from student to student. Music is a wonderfully diverse subject and every student has his own aspirations. I will do my best to cater each lesson to the student's goals and interests whether that is classical piano method, rock, jazz, folk, country, pop or anything in ...

Stephanie is a great instructor! She is very knowledgable, professional and patient with her students. She takes the extra time to ensure my son understands what she is teaching him. She is very flexible and communicates with me.

She provides a positive environment and I look forward to starting my other children with her as they get older.

I am a colleague of Stephanie. I am impressed with her work ethic and love and care for people. She is constantly striving to learn more and find a way to make the information she learns accessible to her students. I have watched her perform on multiple occasions. She is emotionally engaging and musically proficient. I would recommend her to any student looking to grow as a musician. She will not disappoint!

"I spent about 6 months trying to teach myself piano and it was such a nightmare. Finally broke down and invested in piano lessons, and I was lucky to find Fawn. She is very patient with me and corrected all the things I was doing wrong. She helps me find music that I like and has me play a few others that are more challenging and help develop my technique. She's also really easy to talk to and her lessons are always fun and my improvement is constant and immense.

I'm definitely going to continue with her, and I highly recommend her for other piano players."

"My daughter took lessons from Ms. Clarissa for just over a year and a half, beginning in 2nd grade. We love Ms. Clarissa! My daughter learned so much in each lesson, and was so comfortable with her teacher. Clarissa is clearly a very accomplished pianist, but her kind demeanor is really wonderful with children and new players. My daughter loves to play the piano and is always eager to go to her lessons. I have watched Clarissa's more experienced students play at recitals and am always very impressed by how advanced they are. I would highly recommend Clarissa to anyone!"

"I met Lori at a recent voice competition where she was the designated pianist for my division. She rehearsed patiently, returned texts promptly, and kept a steady, cheerful attitude through two days surrounded by stressed-out singers. As for her playing, she performed challenging repertoire with grace and disciplined understatement that made it clear she was there to help us shine. It's hard for me to overstate just how good an accompanist she is."
