Classical music starts on the page and ends in your heart. I can teach you to read musical notation, work on hand independence and coordination. Through theory and ear training, you won't just perform the music, you'll understand it.

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 ...

I believe in the importance of music in a persons life - both young and those more experienced in years. :-D

Music should enhance ones life and bring joy to others. It should be fun!

I work with students of varying ages. I will collaborate with you to begin an enjoyable hobby or prepare for college repertory. From music theory, to reading leadsheets, and composing basic tunes.

Please feel free to contact me and ask any questions regarding my pedagogy and we can discuss realistic expectations and short/long term goals. We can tailor the lessons to fit YOUR specific desired outcomes.

I want you to succeed and have fun in the process.

If we can schedule to meet in Wicker Park, we will have access to an 8 1/2 foot concert grand.

I normally suggest children 14 and under (depending on how comfortable they are) do 30 minute lessons.

Adults and those 16+, I strongly suggest, do an hour lesson (to get the most out of the pedagogy)

I am also flexible doing lessons ...

I studied music and piano at the University of Central Florida. My main focus there was classical and jazz guitar, but I also had to demonstrate my proficiency in piano. I've been playing and teaching piano for six years since then. I've worked with young children, teenagers, and even adults, so I'm happy to work with new students, novice to intermediate, of any age.

Lessons are built on a foundation of reading music notation and basic harmonic theory. We learn everything from from Bach to Beethoven and beyond! I'm happy to recommend books for beginners, depending on the age and skill level of the student.

About Gio

Hi Everyone!

Thank you for choosing my profile. My name is Maggie and I am a Polish/ Ukrainian/Belgian pianist. I come from family of musicians and painters and as long as I remember I play the piano, harpsichord, sing and compose. My parents own a piano school in Europe so thanks to that I started teaching already 15 years ago. Since then I have been teaching my own piano and voice students in the Bay area. I can teach beginners, medium level and advanced students of all ages but I also can prepare you for concerts or competitions if needed. My pupils perform at least twice a year. A little about myself: I have three Master Degrees in music from universities in Europe and USA . I speak English, French, Russian and Polish. I hope you will have fun learning music with me! Please write a quick intro about yourself and what would you like to learn this year. Thank you!

About Maggie

Hello Students! Let me know what is your goal in learning piano and which pieces you would like to learn. I hope I can do my best to instruct you and make the learning process pleasant and efficient. See you soon!

I also studied piano as a child, and after hearing her beautiful instrumental album, Remnants, I decided to start studying with her last month. Our lesson is the highlight of my week, and I recommend her highly."

"We switched instructors three years ago and we have been so pleased with the boys' progress, not only in their ability but also in their understanding of technique and musicality. Daniela has helped them to advance beyond merely playing correctly to playing with understanding, appreciation, expression, and emotion. She doesn't take her students one song at a time through a book, but she helps the kids select a piece they want to learn to master, and then they work until it is played with perfection."
