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!

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!

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.

Hello! As a pedagogue I aim to teach and help developing notation, sight reading skills, ear training, counting and rhythmical exercises, different types of technique.
I have taught many students that took part in competitions and won the lead prizes, played in concerts, masterclasses and exams. I have worked with students of various levels in piano playing: from beginners to advanced.
After analyzing their skill level, I design and try to organize lessons in a way to accommodate each child’s method of learning while trying to motivate students to achieve their highest potential. The repertoire varies from student to student and may include even some basic pop songs that are possible to play.

Online Classical Piano Teacher

Hello,
my name is Anna and I am a piano/ vocal/ music theory teacher. I graduated from the Rimsky Korsakov College of Music, Saint Petersburg and now I continue to educate people in the music field in California. I have big experience in working with children and adults, combing Piano and Vocal technique to develop general musicality.
Although I have a solid theoretical and performance background, my lessons are not " your childhood boring nightmare". I want my students to feel the music not as "the most difficult and useless thing I've ever learnt" but as useful, beautiful and fun life skill!
All ages and levels are welcome!

I just started piano and vocal lessons with Anna today. She is professional and really knowledgeable. I am looking forward to learning more and finding my true singing voice because she makes it fun.

With 10 years of teaching experience, and a Master of Music in Piano Performance, my students can expect a refined pedagogical approach designed to teach them conservatory-level core competencies every musician should know up to advanced techniques.

In our first lesson, we will carefully map a trajectory that will get you to your goals. The way my approach differs from many teachers is I don't approach every student with the same methodology, but instead rely on your interests to build a methodology together.

This will usually include: piano literature ranging from classical to modern genres, composition, music theory, ear training, sight reading, transposition, improvisation, accompanying techniques, and other skills depending on what my student needs. Students who enroll come from all walks of life. Some are hobbyists; some are children; some are working professionals, and some are seasoned musicians looking to better their craft.

About Benjamin

I never feel there isn't more to learn when you start music. I am constantly looking for a higher artistic level, and that is what I encourage in all my students. The work is never done. I welcome you to an adventure of a lifetime in music. My goal is to give all my students the independence they n

I'm a fun person who loves different genres of music. I'm laid back but I try to keep things interesting so that lessons don't feel like a chore. I sometimes teach current songs from the radio to explain theory.

About Alex

I'm a multi-instrumentalist who is excited about music and would love to teach what I have acquired about piano. I've started my journey at the age of 5 with formal lessons. I took these lessons all throughout grade school and high school. In my middle school years through high school, I played

Alex is a great teacher and you all will love the lessons that he gives. He is committed to getting it done. Excellent choice!!
Reyna R.
Alex definitely knows his stuff. He is a musical genius. He is engaging and makes our lessons fun by incorporating multiple genres to teach theory. I stumbled upon Alex's profile when I was searching for a teacher that would expand my understanding of jazz concepts, blues, gospel and improvisation scales. If you are looking for a down to earth instructor that is knowledgable and patient, then Alex is the person for you.
We had several glitches and technical issues, which is why the review reflects 4 stars.
Nicholas
We had a few technical difficulties but Alex was committed to making it work. My sons choose “Old Time Road”song and were thrilled to make progress on the first lesson. They were excited to book more lessons.

"Laurel taught my kids piano lessons for several years. When she moved away, she proved impossible to replace. She really cared about the kids' learning. For example, when my son seemed to connect better with the process and logic behind the music, she got him started composing his own! Both kids benefited greatly from Laurel's teaching and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a piano teacher."
