My teaching style is very personable and friendly yet serious about results. Curriculum can be tailored to the student.For piano students I am currently using the Alfred's basic piano library series. Students can expect to progress to the next level within a 3 to 6 month period depending on student’s dedication. Reading, theory, and technique will all improve and grow at the same rate. My philosophy is that instruction should take a learners knowledge of music beyond the instrument.

We have had a few in-home lessons with Jim for our 9yo girl and 15yo boy. He's fantastic; he cares deeply about music and their love of it. He has high expectations of their progress, and he is very good with their different skills levels and motivates them accordingly. We highly recommend Jim!

I teach the very beginner to the very advanced levels. combining piano technique with music theory and some history and analysis of western music so the student will understand what he's doing and be able to interpret in the right style of the music he's playing.

I'm a professional composer and Berklee graduate, but the piano is not my main instrument. I was trying to teach myself on piano, and it was not working. I was practicing but was not progressing. I needed a clear method and someone who knew how to teach proper technique. Berthe provided a strong methodology and showed me all of the subtle technique fixes I needed to get my playing up to speed. I've had many "ah-ha" moments when taking lessons from Berthe. She plays beautifully and teaches in a way that only very experienced teachers can. I highly recommend her for learning to play baroque, classical/contemporary, and romantic music with the bonus of receiving a deeper understanding of the history and theory behind the music.
Barbara S.
I have been playing piano for over 60 years and Berthe is the best teacher I ever had. She teaches how to play beautiful pieces with the proper technique with patience and encouragement, while ensuring you are playing correctly. When you get it right she is lavish with her praise. I love to practice and look forward to the lesson every week.
Megan
I really enjoyed my first lesson with Berthe. She was able to assess my skill level and deficits very quickly, and we got right to work. She was patient and cheerful, but I felt like we covered A LOT of ground already. I learned a ton in just my first hour. I'm looking forward to the rest of my lessons.

I am an pianist, improviser, composer, and music theory geek. I love jazz, classical, and rock music. Whatever style of music you want to learn, I will show you how to move toward your goals.

I love working with adults and kids alike! I can teach basic piano skills and classical technique, and for more advanced students I can teach jazz, improvisation, and composition. For every student, my goal is to make lessons fun by teaching you the music you want to play.

I have been playing the piano since preschool and have a B.A. in Music from the University of Minnesota.

Playing piano is one of my favorite things to do so I'd have quite a fun time teaching you. What I teach on piano will help you understand a diverse range of instruments and even genres, and, I think, teach lessons that carry over into life.

This was my first time taking vocal lessons. Madeleine is professional and knowledgeable. She has taught me vocal exercises and has provided very helpful direction for improving my singing voice. Thank you!
Elia
Madeleine is an amazing teacher! Super professional, and she knows so much about singing technique, so she can give you specific and very helpful pointers to make your voice sound the best. She also has a great ear and is so good at singing herself! Additionally, she dedicates time outside of class to provide you with resources and exercises to help you practice and get better. Would definitely recommend taking lessons with her! Already have noticed my singing getting so much better :)

Madeleine has been a great teacher! She is very skilled in finding the best ways and exercises to help you attain your singing goals. I have had only 4 lessons with her and I am (as well as my family) already noticing my singing voice improving!

"I am very thankful I found Joan. I must confess initially I wasn't sure how the lessons would work out since it was through the web I found her. But as the weeks went on, I saw chemistry building between her and my kids (ages 10, 6), and now (3.5 months into the lesson), I see my daughters playing and improving in their musicality and performance. I was especially grateful because we had just moved and my older daughter looked like she was at another quitting point. (She had 3 not so great piano teachers in the past then 1 really good teacher, and so was sad to leave her last piano teacher and wasn't very motivated to go on. We had moved from the Bay Area to SD so we had to look for new teacher) Joan patiently worked with her and tried to figure out what would get her going, and about 2 months in, we saw things really happening! I am thankful, too, with how she is working with my younger daughter as well, in building basics of her music knowledge. I would say Joan's strength as a teacher would be her patience and flexibility. Highly recommend her."

"My son has been working with Mrs Marty for a month now and he has shown exceptional growth. He is a high functioning autistic boy who can be non verbal and jittery at time. Marty is patient with him and when they play the piano together it has become an outlet of expression for my son. I do not play and so I am so grateful to Marty for all the hard work she puts in to help my son find an avenue of expression. She puts together personalized binders that my son loves to have to sit at practice his “homework” lesson Marty gave him for the week. The binder has served as a wonderful point of reference for not only my son but for me to understand basic piano techniques so that I may also help my son and understand what he is learning. We would recommend Marty to anyone who has an interest in learning piano!"
