I am both patient and enthusiastic as a teacher. I love music, and enjoy the opportunity to share my love of the piano with my students. Once I have determined the student's level, I find music that will help them progress towards a higher level.

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.

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

I started playing piano when I was 3, and began writing music at the age of 6. I've taught music and piano for over 12 years, and tutoring other subjects for over 5 years. Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, I graduated from Cornell University in Electrical & Computer Engineering, with a minor in

I am a master teacher focusing on the classical repertoire along with the very strong approache to improvisation. I am really helping each single student to achieve their interests in music rather than focusing on teaching one particular method. I just take a very similar approach to the Suzuki method but instead of teaching out of the method books I teach mixture of exercises and pieces that I believe are more fun and accessible to today student of any age. Classes are tailored to the needs of any particular student and constantly evolving. I am a true believer that this also enchances an understanding and love of classical music.
A huge range of students come as beginners and left as a young artists as well as adult students
Who came to learn piano and have found that they can perform professionally. And plus have a great deal of Fun!
I also guide my students in the curriculum and exams of the Royal Conservatory program. Exams are offered twice a year. Also my students ...

Voice and piano lessons available online. I have a Bachelor's of Arts degree in music and 15 years teaching experience. I design lessons according to age, abilities, and goals. It is amazing watching my students grow not only in their musical abilities, but also in every other aspect in their life because of the music. The music pours over in to every area of life such as the confidence, mental ability, sense of wholeness and purpose. Shall I go on? These lessons go beyond just the actual notes. We go into stage presence, performance, anxiety of performing, how to practice, theory, expression and the list goes on. I look forward to talking to you and finding out your experience, and goals and telling you how I teach and about my experience. Whether you want to play or sing for yourself, in church, contests, auditions we will meet your goals together. Ready to start playing and singing?

Online Classical Piano Teacher

Piano is considered the mother of all classical instruments for a reasons. Almost all professional musicians and music enthusiasts get their start on the piano. I offer students a clear and organized approach to get playing simple tunes right away. Lessons cover the basics of technique, rhythm, harmony and melody and theory (depending on age) to ensure a solid foundation to build upon. I use singing and moving in addition to playing to help students develop lasting music skills.

About Max

I am a professional drummer, hand drummer, music producer and recording artist. I graduated from the Eastman School of Music with a degree in music education and percussion performance. I am a New York State Certified music educator with over 6 years of private and classroom teaching experience.

"Celine teaches my 12 year old son and she’s the 3rd teacher we’ve had. We are very picky with piano teachers and Celine is by far the best teacher we have had. She doesn’t waste time and gets right to the lesson immediately. She is extremely knowledgeable and capable at playing and teaching piano. She’s the only teacher who took the time to correct my son’s hand positioning on the keyboard. She’s been very flexible with our schedule as well. I would recommend Celine to anyone who wants to learn piano at any level."
