Ray is an amazing teacher. My 11-year-old has high-functioning autism and has a great interest in learning music. I was hesitant to hire just any teacher, as many teachers don't have the patience and understanding to work with special needs kids. However, Ray has been not only patient, but he has an exceptional way of teaching my son in a way that he would understand and retain the information. Ray is creative, intuitive, and experienced. My son is very happy and enjoys the lesson every single time. Thanks Ray.

I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Music and continuing an emphasis on early childhood development. I started with piano 20 years ago (it’s shocking to see how time flies). Along with my students, I am still learning. It’s a non-stop learning however it is such a remarkable experience. I make sure the student gets the learning they deserve as well as meet their music goals.

We had the privilege of having Ms. Angelica as my 10 year old's piano and violin teacher. She was patient, funny and an excellent music teacher. She knew exactly what to do to keep my daughter interested and engaged. My daughter looked forward to every session she had with her.

Online Classical Piano Teacher

I have a fluid teaching approach based on my REAL LIFE EXPERIENCE with an emphasis on improving technique, musicianship and a “truth is love approach” to ensure musical improvement within the first two weeks of lessons! I sincerely believe creating music should be a joyful & fulfilling experience and one that will be a positive change in someone’s life (as it has been for mine). I teach all genres of music on multiple instruments and specialize in audition preparation, real-life gig preparation and musical mastery. I want my students to reach their musical potential and aspirations, while having a good time doing something that they love.

Wade is super personal and full of information! I learned a lot in my first lesson and he was very easy and fun to talk to. I'm excited to learn more from Wade! :)
Joyce
Wade is the rare combination of a talented accomplished musician with the ability to communication with the students. He continues to perform and study with experts in the music field. I was truly impressed with how he built relationships with the students. It is obvious that he cares about each individual and wants what is best for him/her.
Stephen
Wade is an incredible instructor. He is extremely passionate about his craft which is evident in the way that he teaches his students. He pushed me to be a better musician and I knew that I was receiving high-quality instruction. I would recommend him to anyone. I would take lessons with him again in a heart beat.

Learning piano or any instrument takes patience and is rewarding to see progress. I give the student time to learn and process their songs. I welcome questions and give professional feedback. I think of myself of more of a music coach to provide support through your musical journey.

About Angie

I started playing the piano when I was about 8 years old living in Salt Lake City Utah. My family would be watching TV or doing something else and I would go upstairs and play the piano instead. I practiced until I got to the level to play Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata original composition. I still

My son has sensory processing disorder and delayed fine motor skills. We started piano lessons to help him catch up. The results of Angie's positive, patient and encouraging approach exceeded our expectations. Her lessons not only improved my son's dexterity, but they also helped my son to appreciate, play and compose music. He has even chosen to evolve his percussion skills in band class. I highly recommend her for any family.

Our daughter really enjoys her lessons with Angie. Angie is very patient and relates well to children. She is encouraging and I really believe that my daughter will continue to learn and improve with Angie as her teacher.

"At first, I doubted that I could do a piano lesson online but Mr. Raymond erased all my doubt on the very first section with him. He is really good at what he does. I asked him a question and he answered it without any confusion. From his answers, I know he is really knowledgable in music generally, and piano specifically. He is friendly and laid-back but he will make sure you perfectly play your pieces. Take him and you will have no regret!"

"I have been working with Fawn for 4 years and have passed 11 levels of music theory and note spelling and 8 levels of lesson books with her. I can play anything I want, including high-level classical pieces, pop songs, movie soundtrack pieces, ragtime and jazz (I don't like jazz very much). Even though Fawn is very fun and can be silly, she has just the right amount of strict to her. She is quite fun to be with and I have gotten very far on piano (and other instruments now) and will continue to excel with her as my teacher. If I could give her more stars, I would."

"Amy has been instrumental in training many of my children in the study of piano. She has laid a great foundation in music theory and instilled in them the discipline of practicing and a love of classical music. We discovered that classical training lays an excellent foundation for all other genres. Amy’s passion for the classical can be heard no matter the style that is being taught or performed. Some of our children have since branched off into other instruments. However, their instructors have been amazed with their knowledge of music theory. They were able to skip the beginning basics of their instruments and move on to harder selections. I would highly recommend Amy as an instructor. She is professional, fun, and passionate.

We have since moved to another state and I am still searching for an instructor of her caliber."

"Fawn + children = magic. As an adult, I'was inspired so much by my kids playing piano with Fawn that I decided to take lessons with her as well. She is great teaching all ages and I have grown and moved quickly. But I've got to say, the kids faces light up when she enters the room and it's literally like magic. Thanks Fawn!"

"My son warmed up to him very quickly - it said true they say kids know it cause me being the mother I felt the compassion and warmth Gabe had and so did my little one. We have been taking classes With someone else prior where I had to drive and go and this has been so much easier for us busy moms who can stay at home and continue the work while our child is learning- Gabe is so patient and has this calm demeanor and that is so natural that kids pick up and feel comfortable- to teach kids you have to have a certain personality and Gabe sure does. I trust him so much and feel comfortable while he is teaching my son and I’m in the office downstairs- I immediately felt comfortable with him teaching my son and being in my home which is not easy to feel with just anyone- he truly cares and I have never seen him look at his watch just to get out but rather leaving the child with enough to learn and practice and that alone comes from his quality of care and compassion that he takes pride in to make sure these kids learn. I think my son learned much quicker then the previous teacher I took him too. He is made for this and I would

I would recommend anyone to work with her. She also started giving lessons to my 4-year-old boy Jason and he gets so excited to go to piano lessons that I have to run after him when we pull up to her place.
