Private Classical Piano Teacher

Andrew is a gifted teacher who prides himself on making the student feel comfortable, no matter their level of experience or ability. This approach has worked successfully for many of his students, allowing them to be more open and understanding of some of the many concepts introduced and practiced while learning the piano.

Andrew is also very adaptable, understanding that each student is different, responding to unique learning styles and approaches that suits them better than others. But one thing remains the same, and that is the ability to enjoy the work as well as feel clear and measurable progress. This is any student's ultimate goal, and Andrew has a proven track record of success when it comes to learning the instrument.

Andrew will work with you to establish clear goals, if you don't already possess them, and be a steady and comforting guide for you on your journey - no matter how far you intend to go.

About Andrew

Andrew started playing piano at the tender age of 3. His mom wanted him to spend his endless energy on something artistic so she started him on piano lessons. Very early on it was clear Andrew had a natural, unique ability to connect with the piano. He played in school bands throughout grade school

Travis was great. He paced the lesson right for my daughter and started instilling some fundamentals that she was missing. He is kind and friendly. And a great musician!

I teach the beginning (and the intermediate) piano student not only how to read music and rhythms, but also how to read and play chords. I want to give the student a feeling of independence during their practice time. I also want the student to develop an excellent ear, which is certainly helpful in problem solving on their own. Learning chords and their progressions helps the student free up their playing in a way that it gives them the ability to noodle on their own, playing away from the music, as well. Music is more than just reading notes from a page.

Janice has been incredibly helpful in helping me achieve my lifelong dream of playing the piano. She is very patient, explains things clearly, and always picks the exactly right lessons and materials to help me understand and practice the things that are challenging to me. She is also really good at understanding what I enjoy and tailoring lessons to make them both fun while learning the basic foundations I need to grow. I highly recommend Janice for piano lessons! She loves music and teaching and it shows!

Online Classical Piano Teacher

I am a current Juilliard undergraduate with experience formally teaching beginner- intermediate level students. I welcome students of all levels who are interested in advancing their knowledge and ability to become pianistically proficient. For all my students, I emphasize the importance of practicing efficiently while developing critical listening skills. Although practicing might usually seem laborious, I strive to help students seek the enjoyment out of the music that they want to play.

"Mandie is very accommodating and includes the parent in weekly conversations. She is very patient with my daughter who loves the piano but has ADHD. She has worked with my daughter for two years now and we just want her to enjoy music. Her recital duet was by far the best act! It was unique and captured my daughter love to be different!
Mandie’s ability to engage and not discourage my daughter makes my heart happy.
Mandie is very accommodating with scheduling and makeups. Whether you are interested in competition level piano or just the love of music Mandie is the right teacher for you."

"I have to admit I was a bit skeptical of online piano at first, but now I’m a fan! My daughter loves Beth and was taking piano in person, but now logistically online is the only option. It works really well, since it’s in the comfort of our home and I don’t have to take her anywhere. We set up a ring light I bought on Amazon and it’s works great through FaceTime! My daughter enjoys the online classes and looks forward to the annual local recital. We highly recommend Beth online or in person! She is so gifted and such a blessing!"

"Fawn is the best piano teacher I could have ever asked for! She helped me to push myself and achieve goals faster than I ever imagined. With Fawn, I've learned a variety of techniques and tricks that helped to make learning piano easier, faster, and more fun. She focuses on not only playing the piano, but playing the piano beautifully and with a deep knowledge and understanding of music itself. She never lets me get away with sloppy technique or playing without passion. Not only is she good at what she does, but she also makes it fun! I consider Fawn a huge mentor and friend."

"Karen is very professional and willing to do what it takes to see to the success of her students. Many instructors are not understanding when things come up and you must change a lesson day or time. Karen is very understanding and will work to help you. My daughter has had 3 instructors and Karen is the best. My child has greatly advanced and others notice it. Where ever we go she is asked to show her talent. I would highly recommend Karen as your instructor. She also offers the best price. She is well worth the investment."
