Our lessons will be laid-back, encouraging, and productive. Curriculum is individualized for each student based on their musical interests and background. We will work together to help you achieve your goals and gain a well-rounded music education, regardless of age or musical background. Students will learn songs they love to play while also developing proper technique and important musical skills like sight-reading, a solid understanding of rhythm, music theory, and ear training.

About Summer
I believe that the most important aspect of teaching music is creating an environment that is positive and individualized for each student while simultaneously providing the necessary tools to learn music both successfully and confidently, such as theory, technique, sight-reading, and ear training.

I have 9 years of experience teaching piano, theory, and guitar to students of all ages and musical background, including students with special needs.

Above all, our lessons will be about learning music that interests you and reaching your musical goals. Curriculum for our lessons will draw from variety of methods and aspects of music education. These include music theory, ear training, sight-reading, body mapping, technique, improvisation skills, arranging, and composition.

Students who are interested in doing so will have the opport
unity to perform at spring and winter recitals.

I am currently an active performer and music educator in New York City. I graduated with honors from Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA with degrees in Performance and Audio Engineering,

Feel free to send me a message if you have any questions about lessons or scheduling!

Summer has been teaching my 3 children piano for over a year and a half, she has helped them grow as musicians and showed them a love for playing. I love over-hearing their lessons as she always begins by asking them about their day, she is truly kind and delightful. My children are 17, 14, and 10 and they have tremendous respect for her. She has taught each of them at their individual level and customized their lessons accordingly. Summer's musical knowledge and talent seem endless. She never ceases to impress us.

The focus of my piano teaching is the classical style, but the fundamentals we learn as classical pianists are necessary for any type of music! Whether you're just starting out, looking to brush up on your skills, or learning more advanced repertoire, I am happy to adjust lessons to YOUR personal needs! We can also incorporate music theory and history to broaden your learning.

I am a professional musician residing in New Orleans. I have a bachelor's and master's degree in music and have been studying and playing the piano since the age of 8!

Please contact me to discuss method books, repertoire, etc. I am happy to teach online, in person at Tulane University, or at your location. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about lessons, scheduling or anything else!

About Phillip
I believe that the study of music is one of the most rewarding pursuits we can undertake! Whether a total beginner, college student or adult looking to brush up on skills or learn new ones, I will help you reach your goals!

As a lecturer with the Tulane University Department of Music in New Orleans, LA I primarily teach music theory and history. I received my Master's degree in Oboe Performance from the University of Akron where was a graduate assistant for oboe and music theory. There I taught private oboe and piano students and provided music theory tutoring at all levels.

I perform with professional orchestras throughout the area and state of Louisiana, including the Louisiana Philharmonic, and Rapides, Acadiana, and Lake Charles Symphonies. Having studied piano since the age of 8 through graduate school, I enjoy performing as a
vocal accompanist for Tulane students as well as for local churches.

I am able to offer lessons at Tulane University and am able to travel throughout the metropolitan area. As I am frequently performing throughout the state, I can also arrange special lessons in other cities. Feel free to contact me about scheduling a lesson!

I am also happy to assist you in finding an instrument, supplies, sheet music and method books. Having the right setup is the best way to ensure success!

I had the pleasure of watching Nikiya perform most of her masterpieces! Ranging from classical pieces such as Chopin and also her delicate and beautiful pieces that she had written and composed herself. Never before have I seen such a talent. If you have her as a professor consider yourself very fortunate. She truly cares for each student individually.

Piano class is an exciting and informative introduction to piano and music skills for beginning to intermediate level music students in grades Kindergarten through Adult. The goal of the course is not only to develop a solid musical foundation in piano which will greatly assist in the future pursuit of any musical instrument in any style, but most importantly to instill in the student an understanding of how music is put together and thereby yield a sense of appreciation and mastery, even of little accomplishments, which build upon one another to greater accomplishments.

Students are taught a stimulating, thorough, and graduated course of recital solos, theory, technical studies, and classic piano repertoire. Class size varies from 2 to 3 students (with the possibility of expansion) with group activities as well as one-on-one instruction. I have found that a group atmosphere is often more beneficial and enjoyable for beginning to intermediate level students because they are ...

About Tamari (Tamara)
Hi, there! I'm Tamara and I can't wait to meet you!

On social media and for those who are more familiar, I'm Tamari. We all learn in different ways; some are more visual; others, auditory; some, kinesthetic--I combine a number of different modalities in my teaching, including direct feedback-teaching--once you learn a concept or skill, teach it, as soon as you possibly can, to someone else! -- this reinforces your own knowledge of the skill or concept!
I've been teaching private lessons for many years and have loved helping my students acquire new skills, master new pieces, and prepare for concerts and performances. Over the years, my younger students have earned Blue and Gold ratings at the Young Musicians' Festival in Fairfield U., some of them earning gold cups: This is a statewide event to encourage long-term commitment
to the art, discipline and joy of music making.
I went to Indiana University's Jacob School of Music and earned a Masters in Piano Performance, and Composition in the '90's. I sang all types of vocal music as well as prepared singers with vocal coaching and voice development techniques 20+ years.
I'm fun loving, patient, and optimistic-- these traits carry through in my teaching style,
One Size does NOT fit all--I approach the lesson plans for each student tailored to your learning style.
Over the past 23 years, my life experiences have encompassed other disciplines and compelled me to learn and acquire many other skills: my liberal arts as well as fine arts education lent itself to helping me work administrative jobs and even expanded into sales and public speaking. I have coached after school and SAT preparation to High School and College age students, helped with the preparation of legal and analytical documents, creative writing and editing assignments; and even tutored computer, social media and Microsoft Office & iWork Suite of applications to older adults.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals

Tamari Witkin is not only an incredible musician, but is one of only a few teachers who is deeply committed to making sure that any student she takes under her wing will fledge comfortably and competently. Tamari has a keen sense of exactly what is needed to help a particular student overcome a particular pianistic impediment to learning to play the piano. Moreover, she brims with such enthusiasm that it all becomes so much fun studying with her that one cannot help but feel like and sound like they are becoming a pianist.
I highly recommend anyone at any level of piano playing to study with Tamari,

It was a pleasure working with Tamari Witkin over the years that she was located in Milford and participated in the Schubert Club of Fairfield County. I am familiar with her piano performance, which was high level, showing fine musicianship and great sensitivity to the message of the pieces.
I have also sung with her; and again, she shows a high degree of musicianship!

Bowling Green, OH

I have 13 years of teaching experience. The lessons are molded to what you want to accomplish, and I will push you to make that happen. My own goals with each student is that they play with proper technique, understand music theory, read sheet music, are able to sight read, develop their ears, appreciate different genres of music, and most important of all, that they play from the heart. I specialize in classical music but I believe that this is the basis of all types of music and through this I can teach you any genre. I always tell my students that I can't do all the magic myself, they have to put forth the effort too. You get out of it what you put in it. I always want to have a good time and hope that you can join me in it! Please contact me with any questions.

About Xavier
I am a professional pianist, vocal coach and organist. I am originally from Puerto Rico, were I got my Bachelors in Music Performance with a specialization in piano from the Conservatory of Music in P.R. and have two Masters of Music from Eastern Michigan University, in Piano Perfomance, and The University of Michigan, in Collaborative Piano.

My philosophy has always been to ask the student what he/she wants to accomplish with their piano studies and then come up with a plan to accomplish this. Pair that with my teachings of proper technique and becoming a well rounded musician which includes: sheet music reading, music theory, sight reading, ear training and playing from the heart and you have the perfect formula for success. But the secret ingredient is always the effort that you put in to get better, without that you will not get be
tter.

As a pianist I do a lot of freelance work with singers and instrumentalists. Working with them for their concerts/recitals, competitions and recordings. I work also with middle/high school students as the choir accompanist for the Bowling Green City Schools in Ohio. I perform my organist duties at Olivet Lutheran Church in Sylvania, OH.

I have a small private studio that I teach from home and looking to expand it with online lessons and with you. I look forward to working with you and helping you accomplish your musical goals whether that is in classical or any other genre, I am here for you.

Mr Suarez has been teaching my 9 year old for just over 2 months. My son was excited about piano before we started, but now he loves it even more. He practices every single day without being told. Mr Suarez is patient, kind and teaches supportively with humor. He pushes just enough to make my son want to be better, without making him feel bad about his performance, should he be struggling. I highly recommend Mr. Suarez.

I love teaching others, and I love music. There is nothing better than spreading the knowledge and joy of music with others who are interested. I've been teaching for 6+ years with several different students. I studied with a professor at Stetson's University of Music, while also networking with several longtime instructors to learn how too better convey the information being taught. So if you or your child is interested in music let me help you by creating a fun and exciting learning experience!

My lessons are unique, interactive, and technique driven. I focus on the fundamentals of classical piano, including sight reading, music theory and composition. From age 5, i have been playing piano, and using the techniques that my piano teacher taught me, I wrote my first composition when I was 14. I am happy to share what I have learned in the last 20 years with the world.

About Chris
My name is Chris. I am 35 years old. I have been playing piano since the age of 5. This is when I began taking piano lessons. At age 5 I was playing very simple tunes like mary had a little lamb , and twinkle twinkle little star. As my ability progressed the next few years, my piano teacher, Tina put the sheet music to Fur Elise by Beethoven in front of me. I was only 9 years old. I thought to myself, what an order, there is no way I can play this. I'm only 9. With her instruction, and patience, little did I know that song was the first building block to advancing my level of talent and ability, and was increasing my technique and sight reading skills. I practiced 4 hours a day from that moment forward, and in 2014 I placed 3rd nation wide in a music competition hosted by world renowned song writer Jim Brickman, and had the honor of pl
aying live on stage with him during one of his concerts at Symphony Hall in Springfield Massachusetts. Due to the technique that I was taught, my teachings mirror exactly how I was shown how to play. The ability to read music is the first step in developing your technique, and finger stretching ability, and through my instruction you too can elevate your ability. Practice makes perfect, and perfect starts with me.
I hope to share what I have learned over the years with you.

I believe in planning for each student's goals and interests. If there is a song you love and want to play someday, I'll help you get there. I teach a variety of music skills including memorization, sight reading, playing by ear, theory, technique, exercises, aural perception, and more. I have experience teaching children and adults. Although I am well trained, I am encouraging and positive.

About Steven
I love helping others progress and develop skills and a love for music. My history includes playing in church regularly since 2005. In addition to piano, I am also proficient at cello and the pipe organ. My training includes private instruction at college in piano and organ performance. Although I enjoy a variety of music, my favorite composer is Bach. I believe playing music is a vital part of experiencing and understanding music more than just listening to it. In today's fast-paced instant gratifying world, music performance teaches patience and discipline in a way few other things can. I attribute many of my successes in life in part to traits learned from music.
