My approach is fun, simple, and easy to understand. I focus on getting a strong foundation and excellent first experience with music. The child will be given a lesson and theory book to work from, but will also be encouraged to play music they personally like. This keeps the child motivated to play and adds an element of fun! These songs can then be used in our recitals, for auditions, or put in their personal repertoire book.

Lessons consist of instructions for scales, exercises, pieces and theory. Basics are required of every student... but once these have been mastered... students can determine their direction... classical or more popular variety. Recital in June annually includes award ceremony for excellence in pieces completed, Theory, practice time and book completions.

I had to cancel my granddaughter's piano lessons with Karen S. due to family and personal reasons associated with the limitations and restrictions imposed as a result of the coronavirus outbreak. Karen is an excellent piano instructor. She has a kind and approachable manner, with just the right mix of friendliness and professionalism. My 11-year-old granddaughter loved taking lessons from Karen. When my granddaughter applied for entrance as a piano major at a school of the arts, Karen provided her with exceptional assistance and support both preparing for her acceptance into the school and also enabling my granddaughter's advancing piano proficiency and learning. I recommend Karen to anyone looking for piano lessons with a kind, caring and extremely knowledgeable and talented piano instructor.

She is GREAT!! She makes taking lessons easy for beginners

Karen and I shared one of those truly remarkable situations, we hit it off right away! We found out we have many things in common, but I also found that her style of teaching fits me perfectly . I left my lesson knowing I had made the right decision in returning to the piano. Looking forward to doing something just for myself...with Karen's help.

Piano is a great instrument to learn and improve, whether you are just starting out, or enhancing your skills. Kids and adults learn how to play well, grow musicianship skills, and explore a variety of musical styles. Interested students are invited to participate in recitals and community outreach events. For the aspiring musician, preparation for auditions, performances and college applications is provided. For those interested in songwriting and composition, keyboard skills and music theory are interwoven into the training.
About me: I have been playing piano since age 6, and by age 12, I was playing for choirs at school. I have been a music director/pianist/keyboards for musical theatre productions, choirs, baroque operas, and more. I am a composer, songwriter, singer, and harpist. I am on the Roster of the CT Commission on Culture and Tourism, and a prize-winning graduate of the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama. Many references available.

I am a classically trained pianist (I studied piano performance at SUNY at Buffalo) and I've made a living all my life playing Blues, Rock, Jazz, Salsa and many other styles. With this background I am able to teach with many different approaches depending what the student is interested in pursuing and what approach fits the student best.

About Ricardo

Online Piano Teacher

Professor of piano at South Dakota State University since 2001. Over 40 years private teaching experience. Student of Frances Clark and Louise Goss. Published composer with Carl Fischer.

I use standard materials for beginners, and try to let students continue with their current materials. I focus on classical repertoire and some jazz. My goal is to foster musical growth and a love of the piano through well rounded lesson assignments that include both challenging and fun pieces.

About John

I teach piano at all levels, and music fundamentals/theory. My students enjoy working with me because, even though we work hard and accomplish a lot at each lesson, we do so with a sense of fun and adventure. I take a balanced approach to lesson assignments, always considering suggestions from the

My daughter has been learning with Dr. Walker for 2 years and 8 months. Under Dr. Walker's instruction my daughter has made significant progresses and has developed great interests in music. It's really our fortunate to have Dr. Walker as my daughter's teacher in her key ages of learning piano playing.

If you are looking for a piano teacher for you or your kids, please consider Dr. Walker seriously. Dr. Walker is a perfect piano teacher in all aspects.

Dr. Walker is good at teaching kids in a way that is adaptive to kid's different personality so that his teaching is easy for kids to understand and kids likes the lessons as well.

In addition, Dr. Walker teaches much more than piano playing technique itself. With his teaching, the student will also learn musical knowledge such as music theory, the development of classical music, the composers and their master pieces, and so on. I will not elaborate here.

And Dr. Walker always encourages his student while the student is struggling with technical difficulties or when the kids is not that careful. Special thanks to Dr. Walker for his patience and encouragement and I think this has protected my daughter's interests in learning piano and music.

You won't regret having Dr. Walker as your piano teacher.
Patty
After our son's first lesson with Dr. Walker two years ago, he was excited to play the piano again. Dr. Walker brought the 'spark' back to a teenager who was beginning to lose interest in playing. Dr. Walker provides incredible background knowledge into various piano pieces, has great patience, and encourages his students. He shares a love of music that is interesting, which is so important for teenagers. He is described by our son as someone who is upbeat and always in a good mood. We are very fortunate to have him as our son's teacher.
Rong Fan
My daughter (11 years old) has been learning piano with Dr. John W. for more than two years. He is the best teacher that I can imagine. My daughter has been enjoying his teaching very much. We are very sorry that my daughter can not continue her study with Dr. W. soon, because he is moving to another country and can not do an in-home teach.

Based on the two years’ experience, I would recommend Dr. Walker without any reservation. He has a rich experience in teaching youth. His professionalism impresses me the most. He uses the words/expressions that my daughter can understand, even though English is not my daughter's first language. His instructions are clear, specific, and easy to follow. He knows how to encourage and inspire my daughter. That is probably the main reason that my daughter has changed her dream to be a pianist.

Meanwhile, Dr. Walker is a very patient, nice, decent, and friendly person. If you are looking for a piano teacher, you do not want to miss Dr. Walker.

Ryan Is a great piano teacher who caters his teaching style to his students preferences and strengths. I have been taking piano lessons with him for about 7 years and he keeps me very engaged and motivated. I would highly recommend him for all levels of students.

Ryan is a wonderful piano and music teacher. He is enthusiastic, talented and organized. I continue to learn from him and apply his wealth of knowledge.
Carmen
Ryan has been my children's piano teacher for more than 6 years. He is enthusiastic, talented, and loves teaching. My older son started playing piano because his Grandma was a very good concert pianist in Germany, and my husband wanted him to learn how to play. According to my son, the only reason he kept learning was Ryan: his way of teaching, his talent and his inspiration.

As a music teacher, he is knowledgeable and patient, with great musicmanship and sincere love of music. He points out where I could do better, but never criticize. He helped me improving my piano playing to a higher level of techniques and musicality. I learned a whole lot from him also on music theory and composition. The lessons were both pleasurable and rewarding. I really miss the lessons with him and will highly recommend him to anyone."
