I am trained in Russian technique using relaxation movements that prevent painful cramps in wrist and forearm. I have been teaching primarily children from age 4 in music schools and homes since 1987. I like to motivate them by letting them choose their favorites, like songs from Disney movies or some other popular songs. I am very patient and encouraging. I am happy when I see love for music growing in hearts of students.

About Katarina

I attended six years at State Conservatory and graduated with Magister degree from Comenius University in former Czechoslovakia. I performed during my college years with a chamber vocal-instrumental ensemble. I started teaching piano and music theory in 1987 at a music school and later I was givin

I have wanted to take piano lessons all my life but never had the time. Katarina has been very patient and caring with me. She’s an excellent teacher for me because she takes time, fully explains things, and has confidence in me that helps me to go further. I am so glad I have Katarina as my teacher. Thank you!

It's NEVER too late to start learning piano.

I focus on the fundamentals (technique, sightreading, playing by ear) to prepare all my students to tackle any pieces they want, whether it's classical, pop, jazz, ragtime.

I enjoy sharing my love of music by helping others embark on their musical journeys. I am a strong supporter of using a combination of aural training and sightreading to boost musicality and finesse. In the past 6 years, I have taught students of all ages, ranging from children to seniors. You

Having performed jazz, funk, rock, pop, blues, Brazilian fusion, and classical among other genres, I use the fluidity between these inform each of my lessons. Whether a student is a beginner looking to play their favorite song on the radio, an intermediate looking for some music theory to give them more options in their playing, or an advanced player looking for improvisatory techniques, I tailor each session to the desires of each student and their learning style.

About Daniel

I'm a gigging musician and teacher who graduated from Oberlin College in May 2015 with a degree in Musical Studies. I pride myself on patience and empathy no matter what I teach, whether it be feeling the pulse of a complicated drum groove or polishing up a piano piece for the first time. For musi

"Christine is a fantastic piano teacher! She made me feel comfortable and at ease with what was my first ever exposure to the piano. I didn't feel nervous or anxious. She gave me a good explanation of the basics and clearly communicated what I needed to know so I could perform the required actions. She gave me excellent feedback, correction, and encouragement. I'm very pleased to have her as my piano instructor!"

"He is GREAT at making me understand theory, which I never have. He's also exciting and challenging in learning how to look at music and anticipate/understand where it's going versus my habit of only looking one note ahead at a time. I wish he was a little more interested in teaching classical music, but I also understand that the new stuff I am learning from him will greatly improve my playing of that."
