I've been teaching piano for 10 years. Within the first few lessons students will be able to read basic music notation and as time goes on they will be able to confidently play beginning songs of their own choosing. I typically use Alfred or Faber books which builds playing skills and teaches music theory.

About Rhonda

I have always had a love for music. From all the music trivia games my family won't play with me, to my large collection of records, cassettes, and CDs - I am hooked! I made my solo performance debut at age 7 by singing "It's A Small World" acapella in a school talent show. At age 9 I started

I ensure they can read the notes they are playing so they can become independent musicians.

I teach either in English or French using both musical systems (do re mi or ABC).

My qualifications are:

* master of music (piano pedagogy), Notre Dame de Namur University, Belmont, CA (GPA: 4.0)
* state piano teaching diploma, France
* gold medal in piano performance, Conservatoire National
* bachelor of arts degree in musicology, Sorbonne, Paris (cum laude)

Very detailed and precise, focuses on why each technique is used and also touches on the history of terms and periods. Also she is very nice and funny.
Sam M.
Laurence is the best! Lessons with her are one of the best parts of my week. She is a master of piano pedagogy, ready with a solution to any trouble I'm having with the exercises, sight reading or music I'm working on. She loves to joke around and have fun but is very serious and passionate about music at the same time. It's a perfect balance! Can't recommend more.
Kurt
Laurence is an excellent teacher. She was understanding when the schedule needed to be changed due to my scheduling needs. She provided the appropriate amount of encouragement and patience, especially when my practicing was limited. I learned a great deal from Laurence and highly recommed her.

Let’s make music! Over 10 years teaching experience in many genres. From the first lesson, my focus is musicality and expression. I teach using technique and repertoire in a way to help my students gain the skills to fully express themselves in music. I have the ability to teach both the traditional path of classical training as well as a customizable program to meet the needs and requests of a diverse musical society. Whether your goals are performance, theory knowledge, or composition, I look forward to helping you achieve them!

Clark is the best teacher I have ever had! He’s so patient with me and has made the transition from in person to online lessons so easy. I would highly recommend him for any of your music needs. He is very knowledgeable about all of the subjects he teaches and he is able to explain everything in many ways so that I can understand. You can’t find a better teacher.
Hannah
Wow! I have never enjoyed playing the piano more than I have taking lessons from Clark. He has helped me a lot with the technical aspects of playing but has always helped me to understand how an emotional connection to the music is important as well. I’ve improved by 3 books within a short time period because of his patience. He also takes notes during our lessons and sends me a copy of them so that I can review while I practice. I have recommended his teaching to several of my friends and he is going to start teaching my nephew soon. Great teacher! And makes learning an instrument a great experience!
Juliet
My kids have been taking from C. Evans for almost three years. Not only has their musicianship improved, so has their confidence! He has been able to directly improve my kid’s musical experiences and helped them with auditions for school amongst other things. He encourages them while providing high class teaching. My kid’s never leave their lessons discouraged or bored but always ready to learn more music and excited for the next lesson. He is very communicative and will always work with your schedule and inevitable conflicts. I HIGHLY recommend him for piano/cello/music theory lessons.

Polina is an amazing teacher. I learned so much in my first lesson. She's encouraging but honest, which is perfect for those who want real feedback to improve. Can't wait for my next lesson!
Lynn
Only a few times in your lifetime, you come across a person who changes your perspective. Polina is such a person. She introduced to music that I can create by myself. Music of grand masters which I attempt to play and eventually perfect. When Polina teaches, all things come easier. Her encouragement, her patience, her helpful hints make you feel like you are her best student. You learn, you improve and you succeed. Every lesson is enjoyable and you cannot wait for the next.
Torry
Polina is so knowledgeable and informative. We jumped right in and she gave me great feedback on a piece I’ve been working on for a while. She is very motivational and I am excited to continue to work with her and improve my technique and ability.

"I've been taking lessons with Kristin for the past 3 weeks now. I used to play as a child, and I'm just getting back into playing now after several years. Finding a teacher that was the right fit was important to me. Kristin is awesome! I felt comfortable right away. She's super patient, knowledgable, and took the time to understand my goals. Highly recommend her :-)"
