Private Piano Teacher

I have taught piano off and on since I was a teenager and consecutively for the past five years. I enjoy children ages 5 and up, beginners and intermediates, and beginning adults. I choose the curriculum according to the student's age, ability, learning style and choice. My primary goal is for the students to have a positive experience with piano and to look forward to coming each week so that they will want to continue piano or another instrument in the future. I have a lot of incentives for the students and experience much success in this area. I charge very low fees as some clients are unsure of their ability to learn at first. I am very flexible, patient and non-judgmental, and I love what I do.

I live on the west side of the valley and teach in my home. It is a warm, open, family-oriented environment and I welcome siblings to come and play with toys or read while the other is in the lesson. We have a recital at the end of the school year, held in my home.

Judy had my son up and playing in no time. She was great about setting a pace that will keep him challenged and confident simultaneously. He loves his lessons and looks forward to learning more. My youngest, after observing a class, has decided he would like to play too!

experienced teacher for singing. And he is very patient and nice.

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.

Online Piano Teacher

With nearly 25 years of playing the piano as a student, solo artist, and accompanist I bring this experience with me to every lesson to make all lessons equally informative and fun. Piano lessons are always goal oriented and will include learning proper technique, general music theory including how to read notes and rhythms, music terminology, and it will be paced based on the student's level. This will result in a well rounded musician while still having a fun, fulfilling experience.

"My sister and I have been taking piano lesson with Randy for about two and a half years. No words can describe how grateful we are to have found Randy. He has taken our piano experience into a whole new level. His method of teaching is great and most importantly fun. He is not only our music teacher but he is now our life mentor and a family. He is always so patience with us even when we make him work too hard. THE BEST PERSON IN THE UNIVERSE!!! (Sophia)"

"Highly recommend! Has been my son(s) teacher for about six years.

Terri is extremely professional and works well with children. She enjoys teaching and laughs with the children. She makes learning the piano fun, and will allow a child to pass and play similar songs at that level so the material is not monotonous and boring for the child. It also gives the child confidence when they do not have to repeat the same piece, but can learn the material from different books and pieces rather than repeating one song over and over. Terri is not a time watcher at all, but cares more about the child getting the lesson and understanding it well. I am so very glad I found her to teach both my sons. Highly recommend!"

She is just the right combination for my needs. She not only knows her subject very well, but is able to transfer her knowledge and passion for music to her students.
