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.

This course is for those who are new to piano. You will learn how to read music, play, and basic music theory.

**Piano book is required**

I am happy to help you purchase a book if you don't have one yet. I recommend Faber's "Piano Adventures" series which is available on Amazon or on their website, but you are more than welcome to use another method if you prefer (i.e. Alfred, or whatever you might already have).

About Jessie

Thank you for your interest in lessons! I hope to help you achieve your goals and improve your skills, whether you're looking for music lessons, or help in math. Every student is a unique person who deserves a lesson customized to their individual needs. Each of my students prosper in an atmosphere

It took me more than 2 months of trying to find a piano instructor that not only fit my criteria in what I was looking to learn; but also my personality. Classical, music theory, modern... you name it. Im so lucky to have found Ms. Chanel at Studio Nar. My experience with Ms. Chanel has been more than a 5 star experience. We started working together in-home/studio, then transitioned to online due to the pandemic. My online experience has been wonderful as well. I recommend both the studio and Ms Chanel to all piano levels! Thank You Ms Chanel!

"My son has been taking lessons with Gabe for about 5 years. His calm encouragement has helped him flourish in his love for piano and music. The amount of theory, classical piano, and music that my son chooses has been the perfect combination to help him create what I expect to be a lifelong enjoyment of music. He has also worked for about 1 year with my 7 year old daughter and has more patience than anyone I have ever known. She has also enjoyed every one of her lessons. I would highly recommend Gabe for all ages and all learning styles."

"Hiring J.R. has been an incredibly uplifting, fun, and educational experience. A far better experience than I could have asked or hoped for. I’m learning! And excited for the progress, which does take an investment of practice, energy & time. He is extremely patient & flexible with how to cope with my needs (when possible) and super supportive: I’m almost 50 and paralyzed.

As corny as this sounds I’ve never known anyone with such a broad overall knowledge, experience and wisdom about music and instruments. If I have a question about my piano playing, or virtually any music question, he either has the answer or helps me find it if he doesn’t.

He is extremely knowledgeable and respectful and has more than earned my respect and gratitude.

Hiring him is one of the best choices I’ve ever made. The only regret I have is that I didn’t hire him sooner."

I’ve also noticed my daughter booking more jobs in television and print because of the confidence she has acquired by playing in Fawn's Talent Share's.

"Laura is a great instructor for any student, especially for beginners who can learn and adapt quickly. She is extremely patient with students and thoroughly explains everything. She tailors music choices to the student’s preference while also making sure classical pieces and theory are covered at the same time. She encourages students to be creative and individualistic instead of enforcing strict boundaries when playing modern pieces. Laura consistently gives constructive critiques and positive reinforcement to help students understand their mistakes and fix them properly. Overall, she is an excellent piano teacher and I could not recommend her more. In only 1.5 years of lessons with Laura, I have improved tremendously thanks to her brilliant style of teaching."
