We will learn isometric exercises to strengthen the muscles and develop kinaesthetic awareness. Playing scales, arpeggios and etudes will develop our technique and help us deepen our understanding of music theory.

We will apply our skills to learning a varied repertoire of your choice. You will be equally proficient at playing with sheet music and improvising by ear!

Playing the piano or keyboards is about more than boring piano lessons, it’s about skills you can use in real life.

1. Learning to Play Notes. It’s what piano lessons have always been about. And sure we’ll do it. But unless you are preparing to go to college and major in piano, it’s doubtful it’s all you need to know.

2. Learning to Play Charts. THIS is what you probably need to know most to be a successful and fulfilled piano or keyboard player. Maybe you want to play in a band, or at church, or just jam with friends. Knowing how to read music charts will give you the ability to play along with any kind of music in any situation. You’ll learn how to improvise both chords and rhythm.

3. What Do You Want to Play? Why just play what others want you play? Or play notes anyone could learn how to play? We’ll talk about what you want to play whether it’s your own music, or the latest Ed Sheehan tune.

4. Make Up Stuff. This especially for folks who want to write music. Or maybe ...

She is outstanding. I am very impressed with her teaching my daughter violin.
Alex
It was a great first day. My child felt motivated by her teacher
Ryan
Cara is the best music teacher we've ever met. My daughter Amanda (now 6 years old) started learning piano from her 8 months ago. Before that Amanda learned piano for 1 year but didn't have good progress. Now, Not only can Amanda play piano very well, but also she can play violin well for 5 variations of Twinkle Twinkle, after only 9 violin classes from Cara. The most important thing is: Amanda is falling love with the music, which I believe will benefit her whole life. In our opinion, experience, fun, discipline and child-centered are the key to Cara's teaching success. We have met with her husband (a retired band director), and two daughters (both professional violinists), we can feel their love to the music and really admire their music skill.

Our friends thought we were crazy when they knew the fact that we need to drive 60 minutes single trip to take the weekly lesson, but after they see Amanda playing piano and violin, they think it well deserves it.

Cara is the best music teacher for kids in Metro-Orlando area. If you want your kid to fall in love with music, she is your best choice. Go Cara!

I use the Faber method books for children including the Lesson, Theory & Performance books which all work together to introduce and reinforce musical concepts. I follow the student's interest is specific genres of classical, jazz, blues or pop and add pieces from those genres that students will find interesting and exciting.

For teens & adults, I generally use an all-in-one method book and then allow students to choose what pieces they'd like to work on, or suggest pieces based on the style of music that student prefers

For younger children just starting out, I implement early childhood techniques to include creative movement and percussion instruments. These enhance and reinforce the musical elements we are working on in piano. They also extend the attention span and infuse the lesson with a sense of action and fun.

Rachel has taught our son since first grade; he's now in third. She's tailored lessons to his musical taste (the Beatles) while providing a strong foundation on which to build. She's been very flexible and accommodating throughout the switch from in-person to remote lessons, and he really enjoys the time with her. Knowing that so many kids are motivated by short-term goals, she's planned even more recitals during this remote time than when they were solely in-person, and that's been a great motivator for our son to practice.

DO NOT BOOK WITH RACHEL PANAY RAZIEL
It is with deep regret that I have to report that Rachel was clearly INTOXICATED during her lessons with my children today (ages 14 & 11). We will not be using Take Lessons again. There is no way an app can sufficiently vet all these teachers. Please don’t put your children in danger and learn this lesson the hard way like we didi.

Rachel is a great teacher for my 12 year old child. Rachel builds her confidence and meets her exactly where she is at. I highly recommend her.

Online Piano Teacher

Taking into account the countless stories I have heard of people lamenting piano lessons until they grew to resent the instrument, I am here to offset all that with fun lessons that are just as educational. In fact, students appear to learn more quickly when they are having a good time. I promise to introduce you to the piano in a way that sticks and enriches your life for years to come.

About Chaetan

Having played music for as long as I can remember (my father is an accomplished Jazz and Soul drummer), music has always been a key ingredient in my life. From playing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme on the drum set as a toddler, I have gone on to learn electric/classical/lap steel guitar, e

Great Beginner Guitar Lessons

I look forward to my weekly guitar lessons with Chaetan because he is a very knowledgeable, relaxed, and patient teacher. He tailors my lessons to meet my personal goals (learning those pinnacle acoustic songs). But as an exceptional instructor, he also guides me to meet goals he has for me as a student, such as learning to build chords on my own. The quality of his instruction has already increased my progress on the instrument. Overall, his talent and interest in music motivate me to practice so I am fortunate to have found Chaetan as my guitar teacher.

Excellent and Unique Teacher

Chaetan is a very friendly instructor who tailors his lessons to meet both the experience level and type of music a student is interested in. Chaetan has a lot of energy and makes the lessons fun. He appears to know every aspect of what he is teaching as well as plays other instruments. My daughter and I are both very happy with Chaetan.
