Students from 5-95 are welcome. We will use the Alfred Premier Series, mainly the Lessons, Technique and Theory books. However, materials and methods are adjusted based on individual learning styles and interests.

A variety of rhythm instruments and games are used with younger students to build basic skills. Older students will learn music history with their lessons.

About Patricia

I graduated from the University of Colorado with a degree in music education, K-12. Following I spent a year teaching piano and voice in England and then moved back to Colorado and opened a home studio. I have had the privilege to raise my daughter while working in the home as a music teacher. We later moved to Kentucky where I again started a home studio. I now have over 30 years of teaching experience, specializing in piano and voice lessons for beginners to advanced for students of all ages. I also have taught basic guitar. My teaching style is very "laid back". I am a teacher who desires her students to learn and enjoy piano. The curriculum will be chosen individually for each student and if students are transferring from another teacher, they can use their current curriculum. ...

Great instructor, very helpful, personable, positive, talented at singing herself, and flexible with scheduling! I am an adult student (with no previous singing experience) wishing to attain what I consider a decent singing voice and have been taking lessons for about 3.5 months now, and am well on my way!

Pat is a very kind and patient teacher, she makes me feel comfortable to sing and perform, which helps me to gain confidence. She is very supportive of my musical interest outside of voice lessons as well. Thank you Pat for being such a great teacher!

Angela H.

Hazelwood, MO

I started playing piano at age seven when my mother enrolled me in lessons. I have been playing ever since, and I absolutely love it. I began teaching private piano lessons in 2003, and have taught many thousands of lessons since that time. I have experience accompanying choirs, instrumentalists, and vocalists, as well as playing as a soloist in various piano competitions and recitals. I recently began taking lessons in jazz piano, a genre I never learned much about. I believe it is never too late to learn something new, and I am excited to start this new chapter of my musical life and to use this new knowledge to enhance my own teaching.

In my piano lessons I use the Faber's fabulous Piano Adventures series. In my opinion, they are the best books on the market, emphasizing reading by intervals as opposed to memorizing note names. This method minimizes student frustration while also decreasing the amount of time it takes a student to read a new song. Piano Adventures also focuses ...

About Angela

Hi! My name is Angela, and I teach private piano, voice, and theory lessons. I love teaching, and have taught many ages (3 to 93) and ability levels (novice to advanced). I am a dependable, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic teacher. I offer lessons for 30, 45, or 60-minute weekly sessions in my home studio. I do not offer bi-weekly lessons or lessons in the student's home. My home is a split-level, with my private living area above and my music studio below. There is a waiting area just outside the music studio, as well as a half-bath specifically designated for students and parents. The studio itself contains a piano and organ, my personal music library, and additional seating for parents. There is a full-length mirror for vocal students to watch their performance skills grow, and a ...

Houston, TX

I don't accept schedule-as-you-go students.

Studio Policy:

Regular practice: Students are required to practice 5 days a week. The more you practice, the better prepared you are for the lesson. The length of each daily practice session depends on the age or level of the student. Minimum daily practice requirements by age are:

Ages 4 ~ 10/ beginners: 30 minutes
Ages 10 ~ 14/ intermediate: 45 minutes
Ages 14 ~ 18/ advanced: 60 minutes and more

Regular attendance to lessons: I want you to have correct music reading, playing, and good posture, and these cannot be achieved without regular guidance by the teacher. Regular attendance to lessons also insures that no change of schedule will be made to yours because of someone else’s lesson cancellation.

Beginning students can expect to learn note reading and technique exercises designed to strengthen the fingers and help the student recognize common musical patterns, as well as starting to play simple songs immediately, and then songs using left hand chords.

Intermediate students can expect to learn more difficult pieces involving left hand and right hand chords, as well as basics in musical interpretation and improvisation.

Advanced students can expect a focus on the musical subtleties on more advanced works.

About Sandra

I am a classically trained pianist and trumpet player with a bachelor's degree in music education. I have taught for over 20 years, to both adults and children, with a focus on classical basics and music theory for beginners and stylistic development in various musical styles for intermediate and advanced students. I teach from a standard method, but adapt my teaching style to the personality and learning strengths of my students. I teach from my home in the Castro neighborhood. *** Lesson Details *** You can expect a calm teaching atmosphere and a generally laid back approach to your learning.

Excellent in all regards

Sandy is great. She is supportive and encourages me beyond what I think I can do (and usually I can do it). I've only been working with her for 3 weeks and already my high notes (my biggest problem) are much better and I'm sight reading at a much higher level. She is helping me to have a goal (an audition about 5-6 months) which gives me the incentive to practice when the going gets tough. She is helping me to bring my love of music back into my life.

Donna D.

Corte Madera, CA

I take students of any age, starting with age 8, who are just beginning with their musical journey, or who are returning to the piano after many years. I teach the basics, including basic rhythms, notation, scales, arpeggios, chords, etc. as well as learning pieces. I am interested in the musical styles of the various periods of music history, and keyboard literature from the Baroque to the 21st century. I structure lessons to suit the needs and desires of each student.

About Donna

I love to sing, and I have a passion for teaching students to sing well. I have sung in choruses all my life, and have been inspired by fine conductors and great composers. I am certain that music enlivens my life like nothing else, and it can do that for everyone. Whether you sing in the shower, or in the choir, or with a few friends, or in an opera, you can find your song. Learning to play the piano, from the very beginning, or picking up where you left off in the past, will bring a spark to your life. Whether you want to play for yourself or some friends, or want to get on track to becoming a concert pianist, music will enrich your life. My students develop an appreciation for music of the Renaissance up through the 21st century. They are willing to delve into exciting territory ...

Feedback for Donna

Donna's method of teaching gets quick results. She simplifies, presents and reinforces concepts such that I've managed to make progress with each lesson. Highly intelligent yet flexible, Donna was quick to analyze my learning process/style. Therefore, when I do falter, she knows exactly why - and helps me make adjustments.

My 10 y/o daughter is taking online piano lessons with Bonnie and we couldn't be more pleased! Prior to Bonnie, she has taken lessons off and on since she was 5 and never really got into them. She dreaded practicing, and didn't really like her teacher. Bonnie is so sweet and patient with her. Every little step forward gets praise from Bonnie. My daughter is learning all kids of new stuff. She practices almost everyday, and without me telling her to. I was worried about online lessons for piano, but it doesn't seem to interfere with the teaching/learning process. Glad to have found TakeLessons and more importantly, Bonnie!

About Piano

Learning to play the piano can be a very enjoyable hobby. The benefits of learning to play a musical instrument cannot be overstated!

The piano is a common instrument for beginning musicians, and many students choose piano to broaden their education as well as their physical and mental performance capacities. Piano is fun to learn, and with dedication and practice, most students can play several simple songs within a month or two.

Our friendly piano teachers offer both traditional piano as well as electric keyboard lessons. We also have teachers who specialize in wide varieties of musical genres, including jazz, blues, classical, country, rock and more.

It's no surprise students learn faster when taking private piano lessons. It simply cannot be compared to watching video tutoria
ls or ‘how to play piano’ YouTube videos. Personalized lessons are important, and finding specialized teachers for one-on-one lessons allows students the necessary feedback and personal attention required to become great pianists.

Advantages of our personalized piano instruction include:
• Fully customized lessons for all ages, experience levels and interests.
• Extensive listings of friendly, certified teachers.
• Easy access to online lesson journals.
• 100% money back guarantee.
