First time playing piano? Resuming after years or decades of not playing the piano? No matter your age or experience, you can always learn and improve!

I have close to 10 years of tutoring experience, helping children and adults embrace piano and music.

I recommend just starting with a single lesson to see if we are good fits for each other and start a roadmap to progress toward your goals! My rates is for a one-off session, so it is extremely negotiable if we work together regularly.

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have. However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. Or maybe the teacher/professor is not the best

Susan is not only an accomplished musician, but she is also an amazing teacher and mentor. She elevated my daughter’s musicianship and helped her find her true potential as a classical pianist. My daughter’s success as a competitive pianist is due to Susan’s instruction, encouragement, and guidance. When we started lessons with Susan, we struck gold!
John
Susan is an experienced concert pianist with world-class expertise in the instrument, yet she is also an approachable educator + coach who has done a great deal to advance my technique and interpretation. I’m glad to have found her. Advanced pianists will be pleased to find someone who can help raise their game even further, but regardless of your skill level, I don’t think you’ll regret signing up with her.

Susan was a PERFECT match for me. I really hate leaving her great knowledge. She has poured out to me her expert knowledge. Unfortunately, I am unable to continue. Susan is a teaching jewel to be cherished.

Private Classical Piano Teacher

Hello prospective students! The most important things are I love music and I work for you. I have a bachelor's degree in music composition and a piano performance minor from the Chicago College of Performing Arts.

I teach all ages from beginner to intermediate students. Lessons are catered to the goals of each student, no two lessons the same.

For young beginners I teach rhythm and pith and focus on ways to get them excited about music.

for older/intermediate students I offer lessons on piano performance, music theory and history, music composition and recording.

I believe that my job as teacher is to help you define your goals and achieve them. I am excited to teach piano performance, music theory and music history. I also have 5 years of professional recording experience for those who are interested in recording techniques and the industry. My philosophy towards teaching is spending ample time building a concrete foundation with core concepts to then build on. Please contact me ...

About Andrew

I am a graduate from the Chicago College of Performing Arts Conservatory with a Bachelor of Music Composition and a minor in piano performance. I have been playing piano and flute since 2006 and started composing/song writing in 2009. That passion drove me through collage to get my degree. While

Andrew teaches both my 8-year-old daughter (a beginner), as well as my 11-year-old daughter, who has been playing for several years. Aside from being highly competent, he makes the lesson stress-free, and fun for my children. We have opted, in the interim, to keep the lessons online, and Andrew has gone out of his way to ensure my girls feel engaged and excited about playing piano. I would highly recommend him as an instructor capable of handling all levels and abilities.
Anya, John H.
Great with my young kids, Andrew was easily able to hold their attention and we're looking forward to more lessons.

Private Classical Piano Teacher

I have studied piano performance for eleven years and have three years of experience teaching students at beginner through high-school levels. My classes are unique because I have observed and studied various methods and artistic schools, sometimes denominated “pianistic schools,” throughout my personal artistic formation. I continuously work to improve my own teaching methods through the compilation of the most scientifically correct ways to approach piano playing. In addition, I am aware of the stylistic traditions of the greatest classical repertoire. Therefore, I guarantee enrichment of performance ideas for advanced performers who possess a highly developed musical mindset and who are interested in pursuing further education in conservatories throughout the USA and the rest of the world.

"I have had the opportunity to take singing lessons with Candida for almost a year and having had such a great success with it, I decided to try Piano lessons with her as well. I truly feel like I have found passion for something I did not know I could be good at. Candida has made it so easy and comfortable to learn that I find myself spending hours at home perfecting my skill. My family compliments my ability to play some of their favorites such as the "Game of Thrones" theme song and classics like "Piano Man." They are truly impressed with what I have been able to learn in such a short amount of time and I have Candida to thank for that!"
