Loved my first lesson!

Laura has a great sense of humor, which comes in handy when I am not doing as well as I would like. She is a very patient teacher, as well as creative in her teaching strategies. When I was taking lessons with her she was studying music at SDSU and utilized her fresh education in our sessions. Also, her at home studio serves as a relaxing setting, which was just my style.

I really enjoy going to my lessons. Laura is very patient, with great knowledge and a great personality. I am a 58 years old violin student and I want to learn more about the violin so that I can play at my Church. Her classes are fantastic and I know I will be playing in front of the congregation soon. I highly recommend her style whether you are a child, young adult or older like me. IT IS FUN!!

I'm an experienced teacher, performer, and songwriter/producer. I teach piano and voice to beginning and intermediate students of all ages!

My students learn not only learn to play or sing the songs they're most interested in, they also learn about the music theory behind the songs, so they can flex their own creativity! I also have music industry experience and can teach students about songwriting, live performance, home recording, production, self-promotion, and forming a band.

I have been taking lessons with Christina for some time now and have been extremely impressed with her teaching style. She knows how to break down the music in ways that are understandable, and instills excitement about the learning process. I strongly recommend her as a teacher for any child or adult.
Crystal
I have been Christina's student for almost a year now and with no prior experience I feel like I've definitely grown in my ability to play the piano. She is very professional, makes me feel comfortable and is very patient! At first I was concerned how the transition to moving our lessons online would be affected but she really made it an easy adjustment. I love working with her!

I'm happy to adjust to your needs— we can look at any kind of repertoire you want from your favorite Pop songs to Jazz or Gospel, but I'd be exceptionally excited to introduce you to Classical music.

My approach isn’t to teach you to mechanically execute music, but rather to help you understand how it actually works. That's why I try to introduce my students to Music Theory. Don't worry- we won't spend too much time on that unless you want too! The amount of theory I'm going to give you will strictly serve to help you play better.

Another part of my approach is to introduce you to music you didn't know about, but which might fit your personality. In other words, I try to be more than a piano teacher and to expand your horizons in the genres of music you like. This said, I want to emphasize that one of my primary teaching values is to never waste time, so we will cover things efficiently and in a highly directed manner.

Prior to Yale I studied with the gold medalist of the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, Stanislav Ioudenitch, at Park University. I was raised in Russia where I went to the prep school at Moscow Conserv

Simon is a brilliant teacher who was able to break down tough concepts into sets of comprehensible steps. Highly recommend taking lessons with him!

Moe
When Simon asked me to write a review for him I was very happy to do so. I had the chance to work with Simon several years ago--I'm self taught and studying Jazz as a hobby. I needed some help with theory, and a friend of mine who loves his playing mentioned that he offers online theory lessons. I was really nervous to start studying with such a serious pianist, plus he's mostly a classical musician, but it turned out to be one of the best choices I made for my learning (alongside getting my new piano!) I took about a year of regular lessons and I left each one feeling more confident. Simon's a really cool guy too and keeps things fun! So glad he's finally advertising more, this guy is just an amazing teacher and you won't regret learning from him!!

The piano is a wonderful instrument with an incredibly versatile range of abilities. In piano lessons, I'll provide guidance on the key aspects of playing the piano: interpreting a piece of music accurately and with artistic expressiveness, improving technical ability, learning methods for efficient fingering and effective pedaling technique, developing greater control over emphasis, dynamics, and timing. If you are a beginner and aren't sure what all those things mean or if they would apply to you, that's fine too. I also offer introductory instruction on how to read music and get started playing the piano.

I offer instruction in many styles ranging from classical to jazz to rock to really almost anything. I also offer lessons in variety of musical topics: composition, songwriting, improvisation, ear training, music theory, arranging, and music production (technology).

I've been teaching piano for over ten years, and my students have gone on to make piano a life-long hobby, play in recitals and at church, or just enjoy playing for friends and family. My objective as a music educator is to instill in students a lifelong passion for music. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play basic melodies and as time goes on you'll begin to play your favorite tunes comfortably. I love working with students of all ages and levels, and I can't wait to meet you!

Caleb is a great teacher! Very knowledgeable and accommodating of what I'd like to work on. In the first few weeks of working with him (starting from no piano experience), I was already playing pieces I loved and working on theory. And he's such a pleasure to work with :)

He was great! My daughter liked the way he guided and she was happy having him as a very good and kindness instructor.

"Very Pleased

My daughter has been taking piano lessons from Mr. Keene for 5 months. She had taken lessons in the past, but because we moved hadn't continued for 2 years. In these 5 short months she has learned more than she did in a year of prior lessons. Mr. Keene is calm, patient and teaches respectfully. Although I am pleased with what she has accomplished so far, I am most pleased with the fact that she has acquired a passion for music which wasn't there before."

"I'm re-learning the piano with David and he has changed my relationship to music for the better. After only a few lessons with David I've gotten a greater understanding of music theory than I had in my few years of early piano training. He is patient and flexible with his style of teaching. If it's taking me awhile to understand a concept he's good at explaining it more clearly. I definitely recommend him for learning the piano!"

"Ryan is so great with my 6 yr old son. He is very patient with him, and even though we are having our son learn piano for now, his ultimate goal is to learn the guitar. With Ryan knowing this about our son, he also allows him to strum the guitar every so often so that it reminds him how his piano lessons will ultimately pay off in the end. Ryan is super great with kids! I highly recommend him to anyone."
