As a musician, I am also a freelance artist an I have my own painting studio and gallery as well. I love to travel and teach so this is why I would love to teach online.

I believe that no matter music or art, they are all medium to nuture your own creativity and make you feel more alive.

I always encourage my students to be imaginative when it comes to interpret music. I believe one can play well have to learn how to appreciate music first.
Only with the students' own internalization of the music, the music can be alive.

To play music well means one has to understand the song from all different perspectives, not only the techniques but also the learn the musical themes that the composer intended to express.

And the most interesting part comes to the performer add his/her own touch and imagination, preference to the original piece.

I would love to share the joy of playing music with my students.
I will teach my students the lessons of techniques and expressions separately ...

Private Classical Piano Teacher

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

Pop songs, jazz ballads, classical pieces, or movie/game themes, there must be something you are interested in playing and get better!

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in 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. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

I have been playing classical piano since age 3 and teaching for 10 years. I believe it is very important to understand the theory that goes along with what you are playing, so I include some theory in all of my lessons. I love teaching piano and I hope to share the joy of music with others.

"Ani is a wonderful teacher! I have always wanted to learn to play the Piano. But, it was my daughter who first started learning with Ani. It was evident that Ani is a higly skilled pianist. And I saw how much my child enjoyed the lessons, the easy rapport that was established and the wealth of knowledge that Ani brings. Needless to say, I signed up too! My daughter and I love our lessons and look forward to the class each week."

"Celine teaches my 12 year old son and she’s the 3rd teacher we’ve had. We are very picky with piano teachers and Celine is by far the best teacher we have had. She doesn’t waste time and gets right to the lesson immediately. She is extremely knowledgeable and capable at playing and teaching piano. She’s the only teacher who took the time to correct my son’s hand positioning on the keyboard. She’s been very flexible with our schedule as well. I would recommend Celine to anyone who wants to learn piano at any level."

"I met Lori at a recent voice competition where she was the designated pianist for my division. She rehearsed patiently, returned texts promptly, and kept a steady, cheerful attitude through two days surrounded by stressed-out singers. As for her playing, she performed challenging repertoire with grace and disciplined understatement that made it clear she was there to help us shine. It's hard for me to overstate just how good an accompanist she is."

"I was recommended to take lessons with Anahit Sevoyan from a colleague and from the first class I understood why he was so excited and confident about her as a professional instructor. She is a wonderful pianist and when taking lessons, one must have someone to look up to. I went from being a mediocre, hopeless amateur to seeing significant change in my technique and have to admit, for the first time I am confident in pursuing music professionally. Aside from her ability to teach and deliver the material, she is pleasant, punctual and very kind. She knows the repertoire and different musical styles, gives me and other students insight into teaching as well as performing. She truly brings out the best in her students. I highly recommend her to anyone who is serious about learning to play the piano and especially, thinking of pursuing it as a career."

"We are very lucky to have Dr. Deborah as our piano teacher for our 12 year old. She is very nice, responsible, and an phenomenal pianist herself, and demonstrates during classes which is very important for young student as they intend to imitate. Her teaching for my child includes scales, basic techniques and classical music, enhanced by daily practice with at least 15 minutes on each section. My child's piano skill has been improving under Dr. Deborah's instruction. I sometimes can not tell by listening who is playing, if it is my 12 year old, or his 17 year old pianist brother."
