Private Classical Piano Teacher

My History of Piano:
I have been teaching piano for 10 years. My 25 years of training is mostly through private lessons and passed down generational methods taught through my mentor, Joann Maybe.

My Teaching Method:
I assess each students' levels, knowledge and styles of learning, determine the best learning paths to incorporate into the lesson and bring a "natural movement" approach of training and education.

With my method, this is to provide a collaborative & supportive environment as well as actively develop a person's life, culture and well-being. I strive to take a step further and deeper within the mind of the person who is learning dance and find one's "True Inner Dancer."

Ferlyn has excellent skills in teaching dance. My daughter has improved her dance techniques in 3 classes. We highly recommend her to everyone that needs dance instructor.
Dominique N.
Given all of the positive reviews, I am refraining from giving Ferlyn only one star. I am sure she is relatively competent as a teacher. The unfortunate aspect for which she is receiving such a poor review is a significant lack of professionalism.
I arranged piano lessons with Ferlyn for my mother.
Her first lesson (for which I was present) was fine.
I then found out that at their second lesson, Ferlyn showed up very sick. This was quite concerning, especially given my mother’s age. Ferlyn definitely should have canceled that second lesson and not showed up so sick.
Then, only two hours (!) before my mother’s scheduled third lesson, I receive a text message from Ferlyn stating the following:
“Hi Dominique, wanted to let you and your mom that piano lessons will be cancelled today because it is my Birthday! I will see her next week. :)”
This was incredible. This was a cancellation only two hours prior, not due to some emergency or even due to her illness which should have caused a cancelation the week before! This was because it was her birthday. Something that would have been understandable, were she to have let us know well in advance. I am sure she knew in advance when her birthday is.
This does not reflect on TakeLessons, as I have had great experiences with other teachers.
But this degree of inconsiderateness, first with regard to the illness and then with regard to the manner of cancellation, is appalling.

Meets you at your dance level and you move forward from there. Excellent attitude and knowledgeable instructor. Professional and thorough.

I believe everyone can and should make music! For piano lessons, we will focus on different elements of technique and musical expression, such as scales, arpeggios, and hand posture. Depending on each student’s goals, we will work on a song
or songs which could culminate for a recital, audition, achieving specific goals in a specific curriculum or just for fun! I teach beginner through advanced and can also assist students with chord reading, sight singing, piano theory, composing their own music, singing along with themselves while playing the piano, praise music, lead sheets, etc. in addition to traditional piano technique and music. Before I pursued singing full time I was a pianist for 15 years and still professionally play and accompany! Looking forward to working with you!

Ms. Miya is an incredible piano teacher. She is full of energy, love, and genuine enthusiasm in what she does. In addition to the technical aspects of music, she is talented in encouraging self expression, emotion, and telling a story within playing piano. Miya has both a friendly but professional demeanor and I would strongly recommend her to any student looking for a teacher.
Victoria
Miya is an excellent voice teacher. She really connected with my daughter and inspired her. Miya went above and beyond. She came to the solo ensemble competition and gave my daughter a fantastic pep talk that helped her relax and give a great performance. I was also very impressed with how professional Miya conducted herself. She was younger than some of our previous music instructors but she was fabulous!

"Fawn is Very good with children. My son really listens to everything she teaches him and he is engaged with what she teaches him. He knows she expects his music theory and note spelling done each week as well as the songs and reading about whatever composer she assigns. Once he passes a certain level, she springs a test on him to find out what has stuck with him and become part of him and what has not. She is excellent. She's got an A++ personality as well. My wife and I couldn't be happier with this music teacher."

"Natasha is a truly outstanding piano teacher. As a child I took piano several times from various teachers and it was always difficult and boring and I never got anywhere with it. I think this is the experience that many of us have had in trying to learn an instrument. But with Natasha it was completely different. She has been my children’s teacher for about 4 months. They are 6 and 8 years old. Let me tell you, she is magic! Both my kids LOVE playing the piano now. They look forward to their lessons, they are learning to read and write music and my oldest even wrote a simple song without any prompting! She teaches in a way which breaks all the parts of playing the piano very easily and really engages the students. I would say she is the perfect combination of disciplined and caring. She has given my boys a love for music and a genuine interest in playing the piano. This is one of the best gifts I can think anyone could give a child. Our whole family loves Natasha and we are very thankful to have found her. Now I also want to take lessons with her!"
