Was skeptical of virtual lessons, but Alex is making it work. He's been great with my son, quick to respond, answering all our emails, texts and kept my wife and I in the loop. Very pleased so far.

I really enjoyed my experience taking voice lessons from Alex! I learned something new every lesson and was given the opportunity to sing some of my favorite songs along with some that were less familiar. Alex helped me with many audition pieces and made sure I was prepared and confident before going into every audition. He made every lesson fun and I would definitely recommend taking lessons from him!

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.

Piano lessons with me are about learning the basics and then learning to improvise. I will teach you songs, but I will also give you the tools to very quickly learn any song that you hear and like. In the beginning I'll choose songs to teach you the basics, and after that I will teach the theory behind the songs you choose so that you will understand how music is put together, so you can learn and create music more easily.

About Micah

Hi! My name is Micah, and I love composing and teaching. I love music theory and understanding why the different parts of a song work together to make it sound good. I don't do much classical and jazz teaching beyond the basics. My primary goal is to get you started reading noted music and chord ch

Learning to play the piano was a lifelong dream of mine. I’ve been taking lessons from Janet now for five years. As an “adult” student starting from scratch, I was concerned that I would never really be able to understand music or become truly competent. When I look back to where I started from and how far I’ve come, I’m amazed. Janet is truly a genius at teaching. She makes difficult concepts easy to understand. And she truly understands the challenges of the adult learner. But learning is always enjoyable, never stressful. I look forward to my lessons and even my at-home practicing sessions. It’s become a kind of therapy for me! I would recommend Janet and the Fine Arts Music School to any who is serious about learning to play the piano.

Janet has been an amazing resource for our family. Her patience and ability to work with young kids is exceptional.

I am an adult who learned piano for 2 years when I was little before quitting. I wanted to regain my skills and Janet has been helping me do that. She’s fantastic, kind, flexible and encouraging! She reminded me to enjoy the music while at the same time challenging me to improve my skills to the next level I couldn’t be more excited !!

It is amazing how far-reaching the benefits of piano study can be for people of all ages! Studying music helps bolster math, reading, and critical thinking skills while developing creativity and discipline. Because every student’s needs and interests are different, every lesson will be individually tailored. The curriculum is delivered and discussed with candor and humor. Students are treated with respect and encouraged to push themselves. Piano study should increase confidence, creativity, and love of music.

Curriculum
Piano curriculum is based on the Bastien Piano Basics program. At every lesson, students learn to read music and develop musicality by working on theory exercises. Using first the Bastien Piano books and then supplementary “fun” books from Faber and other publishers, students put their skills to work, playing songs appropriate to their level of accomplishment. Many pieces include an optional teacher duet, giving students an opportunity to play with another musician – ...

Vanessa is an incredible voice teacher! I’ve been working with her for nearly eight years and each lesson has been an exciting mix of technical training, performance technique, and engaging musical selections. She has both challenged and supported me through the development and expression of my craft and I couldn’t recommend someone more!

Vanessa is an absolute maestro. My daughter has been singing with her for six years and has blossomed. They have an amazing partnership. If you want your child (and their voice) to be nurtured by a teacher who is phenomenal at supporting and challenging her students, Vanessa is your best choice!

Cory was willing to take on the challenge of teaching my 4 year old daughter piano. She has now been in lessons for 1 year and is doing far better than I had imagined she would be doing at this point. She is already reading music, playing with both hands at the same time, and playing chords. Cory is very patient and kind and my daughter really enjoys taking lessons with him."
