Very experienced beginner piano teacher! I have over 10 years of experience working with kids and adults on piano and keyboard. My goal is to make sure we do what YOU, the student, want to do. I provide the musical guidelines and push to get you started, but I love being able to collaborate on the music you or your child wants to learn! I have a Bachelors in music from Columbia College Chicago, a thriving arts school in downtown Chicago. I've toured extensively as a singer/songwriter and have written dozens of albums. I now live in Los Angeles and am looking for talented and ambitious new students!

We purchased a 12-lesson package for my daughter as a Christmas Gift. My daughter is 14 years old, and after completing these lessons her love for music has grown. She had only taken a beginner's level course in piano and guitar prior to working with Mauricio. My daughter looked forward to every lesson, and would come home to keep practicing and improving her skills. We plan to work with Mauricio again in the near future and would highly recommend him!

3rd lesson so far, and my daughter has learned so much!! She enjoys her classes with Mauricio and looks forward to each class. Mauricio has a small home studio with various musical instruments. His experience and skill in teaching music is quite apparent and much appreciated!

Rodrigo is an excellent instructor! He explains everything thoroughly and makes the accordion less intimidating to play.
Barbara Judd
I have been taking accordion lessons from Rodrigo for about 6 months. I had never been successful playing a couple of instruments from long ago. I have now made great progress from Rodrigo's instructions. He helps me understand music theory, reading music, simplifying music, and how to charge my musical working memory. I have long been a collector of music. This is the first time I've felt progress and success.
Scott ..
My lessons with Rodrigo were great! He certainly has a solid knowledge about music and how to play it. He’s a nice guy. Very friendly.

I teach the basic piano repertoire however I also like to keep it interesting for the students. I teach scales, patterns, ect...but I also ask what their favorite songs are. I think its important to learn what you love as well as the required pieces. I also try games with kids and make it fun that way as well. I teach classical and popular songs only no jazz on piano.

Online Piano Teacher

Hi everyone, I hope this message finds you well! I am Junling and am a professional pianist working at Boston Conservatory at Berklee. I have been play piano for 20+ years and have a Masters degree in Piano Performance. I love performance, but I am more passionate with teaching piano.
I am experienced with teaching piano in all ages and levels. My goal is to become a better teacher by having a chance to teach students with different interests and tastes in music like Classical, Jazz, Pop, or Broadway and to help students to approach their goal in music.
I always believe that creating a good bond with my students is the most important aspect of teaching. Ever since I had my experience with the teacher that changed my life, I have always not only had a love for playing piano but also a love for teaching. I have tried my absolute best to replicate her formula to share the wonderful experience I had with my current students, and it's something I plan on doing for the rest of my life.

About Junling

To find the strength and temporary weakness on every students is the key of helping them to get close to their goals. I always gives good advices during lessons and also tailors the lessons based on the need of the students. I always believe that creating a good bond with my students is the most im

She is also great at giving me tools to figure things out for myself. She encourages rather than discourages, and helps motivate you by making the things you are interested in a part of the program. So far I am very happy with her and feel like I might actually be able to make this happen."

10 Wedding Processionals You Can Play on Piano

There are so many beautiful piano pieces that make the perfect choice for wedding processionals. Here, Saint Augustine, FL teacher Heather L. shares a few to consider...    Weddings are beautiful celebrations of a couple's lifelong commitment to one another. They're also a great performance opportunity for pianists out there.
