I believe that learning an instrument is a journey, just think of me as a tour guide! I believe in learning at your own pace and learning the things you are most interested in. Every step is an achievement and I want to assist you in making steps that will take you in the direction you want to go.

About Chelsea

Welcome everyone! I have a few beliefs: I believe that everyone should know how to play an instrument. Whether it is violin, ukulele, piano, their voice, whatever! Music is a part of what makes us human, and is important for personal development. I believe that no one is "too old" to star

Laura
Ezra is currently teaching my six year old son and I on the piano. He is extremely knowledgeable about all facets of the piano (eg, history, theory, fundamentals, artistry, technique, etc.). I have played piano in the past, but he is expanding the depths of my understanding of it. Ezra is able to be patient with my son, while still holding him to a certain expectation. His love and appreciation of music is apparent. I would highly recommend him.
Robin
Ezra has been an excellent instructor for my daughter over the past few years. She has grown from a fledgling beginner to a confident young player, gaining skill and confidence as well as an appreciation for music. Ezra balances encouragement with high expectations that help her to improve. I would highly recommend lessons with Ezra to anyone looking to gain proficiency and joy in playing the piano!
Doreen
Ezra has challenged my 13-year-old son over the last 2 years! We are so pleased with the progress our son has made with a variety of piano pieces - classical as well as "popular." He has kept our son actively playing and progressing impressively with his piano skills! He communicates with parents frequently, and he connects and understands how to tap into a student's potential! We have been impressed with his teachings! Highly recommend him!

I am a piano teacher who uses classical music, more conservative Christian music and some folk music.

I really believe in music theory and will require all of my piano students to take it along with their piano lessons. Since music theory makes reading music easier and faster, it is well worth the effort and it is, in my opinion, actually fun. :)

I have also found flashcards to be wonderful aids in memorizing musical concepts. In music, memorization pays off, so studying flashcards is a great investment in a person's musical future. :)

I have really enjoyed taking piano playing lessons with Naomi. Working with her, I am learning to practice and play from written music and even surprising myself along the way. Still, I feel the best is to come!
Radell Hutchen
I started working with Naomi just a few months ago and I already feel that she is one of the most inspiring teachers that I have ever had. She has a real joy for music and is an enthusiastic instructor. She has really taken the time to 'go into the weeds' with me and patiently answers all of my questions about music theory. I had tried other teachers in the past, but Naomi is careful to keep the content in step with my learning pace.

I have really appreciated her instruction.

Hi, I’m Britta! I’ve been playing piano since before I can remember. I picked up guitar as a teen. I have been teaching piano lessons since 2016 and guitar since 2018. I approach music lessons with flexibility. The joy of working one-on-one is that we can adjust the lesson to whatever the student brings to the table each time. Practiced a lot? Excellent! Show me what you can do. Having a difficult time with something? Not a problem; let me help. Feeling fatigued? It’s okay; I understand. We’ll take it a tad easier today. I’m sensitive to my students’ needs, and I’m more than happy to make learning an instrument accessible, whatever is going on.

Generally, we start with a warm-up. Then, we proceed to go over the songs the student has been practicing since last time. I provide feedback and coaching. When we’re ready, we move on to new music and assign it for practice. I’m your guide as the music gets progressively more challenging. When time allows, we have several miscellaneous ...

Private Piano Teacher

I have been teaching piano lessons for several years now, to students ranging from 4 to 50 years of age. In the first lesson, students can expect to learn the musical alphabet, location of middle C, the correct posture and hand position, as well as some simple musical exercises depending upon the student's age and ability. My goal in teaching is to help people gain an understanding and appreciation of the piano, as well as the workings of music as a whole. While my background is in classical piano, I enjoy working with students on any style of music that utilizes sheet music.
