Playing the piano is so much fun. My piano students learn how to read music, play with proper technique, and express themselves musically. More importantly, they learn to believe in themselves and their own strengths. We'll begin our learning journey together by discussing your specific goals. Each and every student's lessons are customized to his preferences.

About Heather M.
More important than my conservatory education and my experience as an educator and a performer is my passion for teaching music and acting and my undying belief that anyone can learn to be a musician and an actor. I'm currently available to teach lessons in my own St. Augustine home studio and online around the globe.

I'm a cum laude graduate of Westminster Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey and a winner of its merit scholarship.
After performing with the New York and Royal Philharmonics, the New Jersey and Virginia Symphonies, the American Boy Choir and the internationally renowned opera star, Andrea Bocelli, studying opera and piano at Westminster Choir College and performance art and improvisational acting at East Carolina University in North Carolina, and appearing in shows and pageants across the east coast, I found my life'
s work in 2003 when I began teaching music.

I've successfully taught hundreds of different students since 2003, from 5-year-olds with special needs to middle-aged professional opera singers, from a professor in Saudi Arabia to a 65-year-old doctor of music, from kids of Radio Disney to students of the famed Actors Studio in New York, from busy stay-at-home parents to retirees with bucket lists, from CEOs to touring singer-songwriters.

I've created and led a workshop about singing called, "The Whole Body Singer". I've written dozens of articles about music and music education for the blog at TakeLessons.com.

My extensive knowledge of the voice has encouraged and empowered hundreds of singers and prepared many of them to win competitions, pageants and auditions, as well as roles in operas and musicals.

Having both taught myself piano and received formal training at a conservatory has prepared me to teach almost anyone how to play.
The intensive training and education that I received at Westminster Choir College in songwriting, music theory and sight reading has benefited my students at every level.

My current work as singer and keyboardist in the acoustic rock duo, Timberwood, has strengthened my knowledge of a broad range of styles and genres. I have a strong commitment to continuing my education. That's why I recently (2014) studied songwriting online with the Berklee College of Music in Boston.

In the lessons that I teach, I'm flexible, positive and encouraging. While I want my students to have fun and love music, not dread it, I expect hard work and persistence. I am caring, patient, nurturing, and compassionate. In piano lessons, I usually allow the student to choose a piece with which to warm up and then move on to technique and repertoire. In voice lessons, I usually warm up the singer and discuss technique and sight singing before focusing on song choices. Joan Frey Boytim wrote a book for voice that I like to use, and I like the Estelle Liebling exercises for the more advanced singer. Hanon exercises are a big part of my piano curriculum, and I enjoy the Bastien and Alfred books for young and old. I have used completely random songs pulled out of a piano bench and a karaoke CD for kids. I will use almost anything I can get my hands on if it means effectively teaching music.
Acting lessons consist of exercises and games that apply learned concepts, and monologue and audition coaching. Parents, siblings and spouses are always welcome to observe lessons quietly.

I have been playing piano over 15 years and have been teaching for 6. From classical, jazz, pop, blues, or funk, I've studied it and can teach it to you!

About Joshua
Hi! I'm Josh, a passionate music educator in Boston, MA. I have taught over 1000 lessons over the past three years to piano, voice, and theory students of all ages. From preparing for rock-vocal style auditions at Berklee College of Music to helping re-discovering the fun of classical piano lessons, there is nothing I enjoy more than working with students on achieving their goals. As a gigging musician and a lifetime student myself, I know what it takes to improve, master, and most importantly ENJOY your time at your instrument. Looking forward to helping you reach all your music goals!

About me:
I eat/breathe/sleep music. From writing and conducting my first A Capella piece in high school to playing in bands that have toured around the world, music is my passion and my life! I value nothing more than finding that passion in others an
d working together to turn musical fantasies into realities.

From grade school to high school I took rigorous classical piano lessons. In 2006-07 I attended two summer programs at Berklee College of Music where I studied jazz/rock performance, and continued to study jazz piano at Washington University.

At Boston University, I studied classical music composition/theory, and was accepted to for a dual degree in Music Composition, Psychology, but decided to pursue music as a minor in order to allow more time for gigging. Since relocating to Boston, I have performed 250+ shows in various ensembles around the greater Boston area.

*** Lesson Details ***
As your private instructor, I am here to give you the most rewarding, interesting, and enjoyable lessons in the UNIVERSE. My lessons are are catered to your specific goals and where you are at, beginner to advance, 5-1000 years old. I am here to get you to where you want to go, whether that's taking up a new hobby or becoming a virtuoso. Together, we will do it!

In our lessons we will work on:

- Your favorite songs, any style
- Writing your own music
- How to learn music by ear
- How to read music notation and chord sheets.
- How to record/produce yourself
- really, seriously, ANYTHING YOU WANT!

I know what it's like to have a teacher that is uninspiring, or to be told that a certain kind of music is the "right kind to learn," when all you want to do is jam out to your favorite songs on the radio. I've been there. That's not what I'm about. I'll teach you how to play whatever it is you want to learn, whether that's the complete works of Bach or the latest One Direction song. Let's do it.

I teach piano to all students and levels, beginner to advanced.

About Brenda
Hi, there! My name is Brenda and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 1985 and have loved helping my students become well rounded piano players, skilled and highly expressive artists and outstanding musicians.
A good musical foundation is important in having a sound piano technique and skill. One should be able to learn theory and methods easily with me. However, it is interesting to note that as my student you can develop your own artistry and technique as well. These are what I hope to deliver as your teacher ---help you learn the theory, skills, technique and method in a fun and casual environment! Remember ... our goal is to learn as much as we can in every lesson and try to throw any questions you might have during the class. It will be greatly appreciated. To let you know more about myself, at ag
e 5, I started playing the piano and went on to finishing Piano Pedagogy from Saint Louis Music Center and B.S. Mass Communications from Saint Louis University . My career as a music educator started when I taught piano at the Yamaha School of Music. Ten years of classical training me has helped me attain this rewarding career. As a child, I have had the opportunity to be a € performer and an accompanist to many choral groups in school. My musical experiences also include performing in Cafe Vasilici€, San Leandro, California, where I can play all styles especially classical music. The ability to sight read is just one of the many endowments I can teach. Others include, an impeccable love for music and a good ear for music.
Brenda showed talent and a keen interest in piano playing at an early age of 5. She underwent extensive and rigid musical training at the Saint Louis Music Center (an independent music school exclusively run by the Nuns of Saint Louis University, Baguio City, Philippines) from the years 1972 to 1981. Under the tutelage of Mrs. Edna Maniquis, she learned how to effectively sight read any song, memorize her recital pieces and be very proficient in piano playing. In 1984, she continued to study with Mrs. Linda Lirag Reynado, a St. Paul's College Conservatory of Music graduate with a Major in Piano, Minor in Voice and who is the founder and owner of Baguio Music Studio, Philippines. In 1992 she finished a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Education and Piano Pedagogy from Saint Louis University.
As a piano student in her early years, she had the opportunity to become a finale performer in her student recitals gaining recognition as the best performer in her class. Growing up, during her high school and college years, she was involved with accompanying singers or chorus groups on the piano and joining in competitions where she won several awards and distinctions. Her musical experiences include playing in front of an audience and performing all styles and especially classical music.
Her 16 years of classical training also helped her attain a teaching position at the Yamaha School of Music in the Philippines and a rewarding teaching career at the Florida Conservatory of Music in Jacksonville, Florida.

*** Lesson Details ***
Have you ever started playing piano but got stumped and frustrated with the theory? Then you've come to the right class. I will teach you the keyboard skills and fundamentals you will need to become a successful pianist. I will provide you a step-by-step explanation on how to play the piano. If you need help with the written theory and you want to learn more about how to read and write notes, all you need to do is to enroll in my class. My instruction includes activities that will help you use the musical alphabet to read and write notes on the staff, identify intervals, and write sharps and flats. Not only will I emphasize note reading but I will help you develop a keen intelligent understanding of the musical notes and alphabet. In no time you will be playing the piano or keyboard and most especially read and play any music as you appreciate it!

It takes time and effort to learn how to play the piano and not all are expected to become wizards at it. For the most part, students should practice the piano/keyboard more often than not and just keep up with the course requirements when enrolled in my class. It takes enthusiasm, interest and most of all perseverance to play the piano however, with me you will succeed and be driven to become a good and skilled pianist!

I have been playing piano for over 15 years. When I started teaching, I realized how passionate I was about other people learning how to play and how to experience the music. I love teaching and would love the opportunity to teach you!

About Jessica
I absolutely love teaching! I taught private piano lessons in Gainesville, Florida and throughout my doctorate program. I graduated from Dickinson College with Neuroscience, Biology, and Music degrees. I have been playing piano for over 20 years through private lessons as well as national and international competitions. I have always had piano in my life and love to share my passion with others!

*** Lesson Details ***
I love to make lessons fun and painless. I require minimal practice time outside of the lesson (although more is always better!!) I commonly use Faber Piano Adventures series for beginner students, but I also love to give a student another piece from a well known composer to give them a bit of a challenge for us to work through together. I am extremely understanding of busy schedules. After 3 months of beginner lessons,
my students knows how to play several small pieces and are developing their technique. By technique, I mean how to sit at the piano, place the hands at the piano, and touch the keys! They will feel comfortable playing their pieces and some may play them by memory! I plan the lessons so that they are always very fun.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have an upright apartment piano with absolutely beautiful tone. It is located in the living room with seating for parents.

*** Specialties ***
Primarily classical music

It was a collection of tunes that I had sung through the past years on gigs and with home recordings with my husband, Tony Tamburello on piano. The album was a big hit with my friends and family and me !! I sent it to a radio jock in Montreal also and he played it on the air. Needless to say, Gina was the master mixer at the controls !!

Hi :)
I am a professional singer and piano player.
I have a band called Viva Vox and we are very popular in the whole Europe.
Beside that I am a composer, MTV songwriter, violin player and I have a bachelor degree in Music Production.

Whether you are a beginner or a professional pianist my Piano Lessons are far from standard ones, because playing piano is so much more than just playing :)

Beside learning the basic steps we will explore the genre that you are most comfortable with, we will learn how to play in front of the audience and how to master the stage fright, how to compose your own song that you will be so proud of and also how to sing (in case you don't know how to sing) because piano and singing always goes together :)

I am singing and playing in front of 40 thousand people so let me pass on this amazing experience to you :)

p.s: Always believe in yourself and just follow your dreams.

I find that spark, the reason you want to learn. I find the reason you want to continue. I have been taught with the logic that you must love what you do and with that love, you can do it well. I start with easy basics, like triads and block chords, and then progress to harder sequences with eight notes. I also strive for the knowledge of music theory while learning piano. Without learning theory, you cannot accurately know what you are playing. I can also find the reason you chose to play and we will explore that together. Finding the reason you are inspired to do something can help with the frequency of which you practice or continue an art form.

About John
I am a college student at Westminster Choir College, who has been studying piano for a while now. I am well versed in classical repertoire such as Bach, Brahms, Chopin and more. I think there is a certain up I have personally. I can relate to my student because of my age and I can craft a lesson where I can be more relatable to the student because of my age. I start with the basics and work our way up, starting with easy exercises that challenge the brain and that target certain areas. With those addressed, we then move on to repertoire that also highlights critical points of study that the student needs to address. The Bach Inventions can target fingering issues and use of counterpoint among the hands. I teach block chords and elemental piano skills before moving onto harder concepts like triplets and 3 against 2.

I have studied with
Ms. Jean Schneider, she is an accompanist with the Michigan Opera Theatre and personal pianist for freelance gigs. I am now currently studying with Dr. Parente of Westminster Choir College. He has written books, played in concert halls around the world and strives to get all his students in flow, to perform at their very best.Outside piano, I am a classical singer, studying as a baritone, who is training with Sharon Sweet of Westminster Choir College. Please feel free to ask about a resume as I would be happy to provide one. My name on Facebook is John Vandevert, feel free to reach out.
