I have been teaching piano for ten years and I enjoy
working with beginners. I have also had my students
participate in recitals.

About Lauren
I am an accomplished musician who is dedicated with a love of music and desire to help others who want to achieve their highest musical potential. That passion shows in all I do!

I have performed with the Brockton Symphony,
played numerous solo recitals, played chamber music, and traveled to Brazil to perform with the Youth Philharmonic Orchestra.

whether they're to turn pro or just enjoy music for the rest of your life.
I have experience teaching many different age levels from age 4-18 as well as adults.

Lauren taught my son saxophone for 5 years, beginning with his very first lesson at age 9, and continuing throughout middle school. She was always very patient, reassuring, and encouraging. Lauren really helped to develop my son's love for music and playing the sax! She prepared him for middle school jazz band auditions, and helped with his jazz band music throughout those years. Lauren challenged him with new selections when his school band music became too easy, but always allowed him to work at a pace he found comfortable. Now in HS, he's very busy with all things band, so lesson time is limited for him, but we wouldn't hesitate to call Lauren again.

Lauren has been giving my son saxophone lessons for over 4 years. She has been an excellent teacher always on time and available. He has progressed under her direction very well. Currently, she's teaching our daughter acoustic guitar and we've been very happy with her progress.

The focus of my piano teaching is the classical style, but the fundamentals we learn as classical pianists are necessary for any type of music! Whether you're just starting out, looking to brush up on your skills, or learning more advanced repertoire, I am happy to adjust lessons to YOUR goals! We can also incorporate music theory and history to broaden your musical understanding.

I am a professional musician residing in New Orleans. I have a bachelor's and master's degree in music and have been studying and playing the piano since the age of 8! I currently teach and provide piano accompaniment with the music department at Tulane University.

Please contact me to discuss method books, repertoire, etc. I am happy to teach online, in person at Tulane University, or at your location. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about lessons, scheduling or anything else!

I believe that the study of music is one of the most rewarding pursuits we can undertake! Whether a total beginner, college student or adult looking to brush up on skills or learn new ones, I will help you reach your goals!

As a lecturer with the Tulane University Department of Music in New Orleans, LA I primarily teach music theory and history. As a private oboe and piano teacher, I have taught students of all ages and levels.

I’ve been playing piano professionally for 10 years. I specialize in pop, rock, blues, r&b, and country. Knowing how to play piano competently can be an invaluable tool for writing and recording your own music. You’ll learn music theory while learning how to play your favorite songs. If you are looking to expand your knowledge in the studio as well, I have a degree in recording engineering, and can cover a variety of topics including sound design, MIDI, mic placement, synthesis, EQ, compression, delays, reverb, and more.

About PJ
Hello! My name is PJ. I was born and raised in Central Florida, and I’ve spent the last 3 years in Central Iowa with my partner Libby, and our lovely and talented 4 year old daughter, Janie Rose.

I have been a professional musician for almost 20 years, four of which I spent playing trumpet, guitar, bass, and singing in the US Marine Corp Band. For the last decade, I have made my living as a multi-instrumentalist and singer, entertaining thousands on stages across the country and around the world. Currently, I am the Entertainment Director at Blue Moon Dueling Piano Bar in West Des Moines. Libby and I also have a private entertainment company called Epic Event Entertainment that provides live music for weddings, corporate events, fundraisers, etc.

Each lesson plan is customized to cater to each student’s individual needs and goals. Howe
ver some concepts apply to all students. Beginners will develop a solid foundation in basic musical concepts, including, but not limited to, how to read music, the circle of fifths, scales, chords, articulation, posture and breathing. Intermediate students will learn and employ advanced music theory concepts, modes, better sight reading, and improvisation.

Arlington, VA
View Full Profile

I want to inspire my students of all ages to reach their potential as musicians. I work with my students on sheet reading, key and time signatures, developing an understanding of harmonic and tonal concepts, and proper technique. My lessons are tailored to the student’s interests, goals and skill level.

About Lilan
I started my classical music training at four years old and continued formal lessons until high school. I grew up in a very musical household as my father is also a professional musician.

Through my formal training and my further study, I have built up a substantial knowledge of music theory. At 11, I began playing percussion instruments and played in my school band through college (Shanghai Jiaotong University). At 13, I earned my level 10 piano performance certificate, which is the highest level in China.

During my time at University, I toured with the band throughout Eastern Asia and Europe. I also performed for Hillary Clinton’s visit to Shanghai and have performed musical solos multiple times at the Shanghai Grand Theater.

In my spare time, I enjoy listening to and playing popular music and classical pieces, particularly
those by Bach and Chopin. For more information, please do not hesitate to ask.

Lilan is an excellent piano instructor with her professional skills and years of playing experience. She provided me with practical guidance on my playing skills as well as the emotion in the performance with her on-stage performance experience. She is also a responsible instructor. She will play the chapter by herself to let me better understand the performance. Thanks to her professional instructions and patience, my playing skills have been improved a lot. I will recommend Lilan to everyone who would like to expect an improvement on their playing skills as well as receiving great instruction experience.

We will have fun together, but I'll make sure we are productive as well. Learning a new instrument is an awesome interest that I will help you develop into a lifelong skill.

I started piano lessons at age 3 and know that you are never too young to begin learning piano. I have been privileged to work with amazing teachers who helped develop my skills. My experience-working with young children and also working adults. All ages are welcome! You will learn to read music, theory, sight reading , playing by ear, and learn to play other genres of music i.e. reggae music. Let’s make it happen!!!

About Jo-Anne
My name is Jo-Anne. I am so thankful to my mother who pushed me and allowed me to learn how to play the piano! I remember when I started private piano lessons how much I disliked it! My teacher realized this and began to appeal to my strengths. I ended up having fun and I want to ensure that same experience for the students I teach. I will admit I hated practicing but once I began to enjoy it, I got better at it because I practiced. Learning music is fun as long as we work hard! My motto is work hard, play hard. Not only did I learn how to play, I learned perseverance, patience, and time management. After high school, I attended Rollins College and continued studying piano with Dr. Cook. She taught me that teaching music is just as important as playing music and that’s where my love for teaching piano came about. Not only do I love and en
joy classical music, I am also very skilled in other genres especially reggae music from the island of Jamaica. I play at various churches, events, weddings, etc and I look forward to sharing my expertise with all of you!

Hey! Thanks for checking out my page and I love that you’re wanting to learn piano. It’s such a rewarding journey!

Now, just to be clear...don’t consider signing up for piano lessons with me if you are looking for a traditional piano teacher. I’m not you’re typical traditional piano teacher! Meaning, I don’t do the boring book levels and cram theory/unwanted songs down your throat. Ugh!

I hated that growing up.

Over the past 15 years I’ve hand crafted my own curriculum that delivers results faster than your traditional methods. My goals are to help you master the basics and have FUN with music while mastering what you need to know about the piano. (theory, sight reading, composing, arranging, performance, recording, music production) etc...

Music is a HUGE part of my life and I’m constantly working on honing in on my skills so I can better serve those I teach.

You can listen to some of my music compositions here:

About Dale
I started playing the piano when I was a whopping five years old! To tell you the truth, for seven years I was BORED TO DEATH! Playing piano was not fun, and I was forced to play music that I didn't like.

Then something humorous happened. I was about to give up when my mom (in her infinite wisdom) took me aside one day and filled me in on a little secret. She said, "Dale, girls dig the guys who can play the piano!" Ha. At age 12, this tidbit of information turned out to be pretty useful. :)

In all seriousness, I jumped in, got to work and paid the price to become really good at becoming a well-rounded pianist (sight reading, composing, arranging, playing by ear, improv, performing, music production) and as a result I was able to take state in piano performance, was on the judging panel for the international Gina Bachauer piano competiti
on, accepted at Tuacahn High School for the performing arts where I studied piano composition and performed in plays, self produced over 100 original compositions with more in the works, performed for the Prince of Ethiopia, and have been blessed to be able to share my love of piano with past and current piano students.

Having been a student of Dale before, he gives outstanding service. He really helps his students gain understanding with music. He teaches fundamentals but keeps it fun. He’s excellent for beginners to advanced composers. He has a wide array of experience with all forms of music and is a great teacher.
