Growing as a musician and producer has been a remarkably fulfilling path and my passion for sharing that adventure is what drives my excitement for teaching. I hope to bring positive energy and insight to all my students’ lessons and help them grow. I am interested in working with students of all ages, and enjoy helping with everything — learning how to sing or improve vocal technique, learning how to play piano, cover favorite artists, perform, record, navigate ProTools of Logic or digital/analog synths. I you have a specific goal or project in mind, long or short term I'd love to help!

Marie has helped me with refining my sound and getting back into singing with proper technique. Her feedback is constructive and she has an intuition for how to coach a vocalist even over Zoom. Fantastic!

"My name is Lily. I am 6 years old. I think Marie is an awesome piano teacher because she is kind, focused, patient, and nice. And also, I really, really, really like her singing voice and I like it when she sings along when I play. I feel happy with her as my teacher because after each lesson, I feel more focused. Thank you, Marie!!"

Five reasons why my lessons can be a unique experience, if, and only if:
1- You are looking for a professionally trained performing artist and instructor (with more than 25 years of experience teaching ranging from beginner toddlers at home to advanced musicians in academic studio setting) who is fun to work with.
2- You look for an individualized approach tailored to your musical needs (Piano Technique, sight-singing, Score reading, Theory, Aural skills).
3- You or your child are busy and want to make the best of your time learning or practicing and therefore need a well-disciplined teacher who can match your schedule; I have a strong Time Management & Follow up System for the lessons. (My philosophy specially for beginners : If it is not measurable , it is not done the right way. )
4- You actively and carefully read the details (of education and teaching experience) of instructors profile and ask for reviews because you care enough for your time and money to know the ...

Ardlan is extremely accomplished and is truly the best piana teacher I've experienced. He explains techniques and the reasons for them so well!
Arika
I cannot express strongly enough how lucky we feel to have had Ard as our children’s piano instructor. We have two children, 9 and 11, and they had both been taking piano lessons for years before we moved to the Indianapolis area. While we really enjoyed the children's first teacher, Ard truly taught on another level. He is an absolute professional - reliable, accomplished, experienced.. Within the first few weeks, Ard was able to accurately identify my children's strengths and weaknesses and design individualized learning programs for both of them and they both improved greatly with his help.

Ard is just wonderful with the children. He was able to teach them at their level with an enthusiasm, kindness, and insightfulness that engaged them immediately. And, although Ard has a playful side with the children, he was also very serious about learning music, and there were very clear expectations for the children. The lessons were a perfect blend of fun and learning.

Ard is not only an incredibly talented musician, but also a passionate, energetic, and wonderfully interesting person. If we ever move back to the area, we would call on Ard again in a heartbeat.

Beginning Piano students will be taught the basics in a fun but productive way. I will teach a strong foundation so a student can move forward with confidence. Lessons would be individualized to focus on areas that need the most guidance.

Students will learn the basics about rhythm, harmony, and melody and how they apply to piano. They will become fluent in the 12 basic keys to a degree where you can play simple songs in any of them.

Experienced musician with 3 years of teaching experience to a wide range of ages. I am encouraging with a focus on emotional release through music. I don't want to force someone to care about piano. I want to teach them how it can be used as a form of self expression, and how to make that beautiful. However, I am firm about the importance of practice.

Hello! I'm Catherine, I live in LA and I have played piano since I was 5. I hated it for about the first 10 years, but as I got older I found more peace within myself and the music became a chance to express myself.

I like to make music lessons fun! We'll learn material chosen by both the student and the teacher to ensure that our lessons are inspiring and engaging. We'll work hard to improve your skills and technique while also learning songs of your choosing. I began taking piano lessons when I was 7. I recently studied with the respected jazz pianist, Dr. Stephen Anderson, during my four years at the University of North Carolina. In high school, I played piano in numerous rock and jazz groups. In college, I played piano in the University Jazz Combos for four consecutive semesters. Today, I'm an experienced jazz and pop/rock pianist. I also play keyboards with the touring rock act, Frute. If you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced pianist or keyboardist, I would love to give you lessons. I hope I can help you out on your musical journey!

Ian was very knowledgeable and easily understood. He made learning the basics and expanding upon them easy. Ian made learning piano a conversation between myself and the keys. He set clear goals and gave appropriate feedback depending on my performance. I genuinely enjoyed adlibbing with him even if I didn't quite get it every time.

"Experienced, Professional Musician, Excellent Teacher

Edward Is very positive and upbeat musician/teacher. As I am not a beginner but rather an intermediate student, I go to Edward for more specific insight and help with issues or problems I am trying to work on to get my playing ability up to my goals.
He is very patient, He listens to me and understands the areas of my playing that I am trying to improve. He then shows me not only what to work on, but how to work on things.
He is very friendly and easy to talk to and to learn from.
One very important aspect about Edward is that he also teaches Electric Bass and Guitar.
He is experienced in playing in a band and with other musicians and brings that knowledge through in my lessons. This is very important to me. Especiallyif you enjoy playing in a band like I do."
