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!

Private Piano Teacher

Taking into account the countless stories I have heard of people lamenting piano lessons until they grew to resent the instrument, I am here to offset all that with fun lessons that are just as educational. In fact, students appear to learn more quickly when they are having a good time. I promise to introduce you to the piano in a way that sticks and enriches your life for years to come.

About Chaetan

Having played music for as long as I can remember (my father is an accomplished Jazz and Soul drummer), music has always been a key ingredient in my life. From playing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme on the drum set as a toddler, I have gone on to learn electric/classical/lap steel guitar, e

Great Beginner Guitar Lessons

I look forward to my weekly guitar lessons with Chaetan because he is a very knowledgeable, relaxed, and patient teacher. He tailors my lessons to meet my personal goals (learning those pinnacle acoustic songs). But as an exceptional instructor, he also guides me to meet goals he has for me as a student, such as learning to build chords on my own. The quality of his instruction has already increased my progress on the instrument. Overall, his talent and interest in music motivate me to practice so I am fortunate to have found Chaetan as my guitar teacher.

Excellent and Unique Teacher

Chaetan is a very friendly instructor who tailors his lessons to meet both the experience level and type of music a student is interested in. Chaetan has a lot of energy and makes the lessons fun. He appears to know every aspect of what he is teaching as well as plays other instruments. My daughter and I are both very happy with Chaetan.

great first session but I think for very young beginners it is difficult to engage. Overall a very nice experience but the location was incorrect in the system and so in the end too far for us to commit.
Elizabeth A.
Keith was a good teacher to our son, he was patient and kind. Our son learned a lot from him, we hope in the future to use him again, if the opportunity arises. Thanks Keith!
Ying
Keith is an amazing teacher. My 7 year old son likes him very much. Before the lessons I worried our boy couldn’t build his interest in playing piano, just lose his enthusiasm after a while as the 7 years old always did. But Keith make me totally worry free, my son likes him very much, and he really knows how to build the kid’s interests and confidence while learning. Now my son enjoyed himself very much with Keith in their piano time. We are so lucky to find Keith.

love teaching and keeping students interested. It's important to find titles that students can get behind and taking time to find pieces that are appropriate and interest students is my first priority.

I like to make sure that exercises are not looked at as a punishment. Breaking down how to apply a technique is as important as learning it.

Finally, I like to keep things light. I'm not going to motivate you by scaring you into practicing. There are other teachers that are good at that, but that's not my style. I'd rather work on finding out how to get you to be self motivated and actually enjoy what you're doing.

My specialties include jazz and pop styles.

Steve has been great. We had to switch to online due to social distancing, and it has worked out just fine. He even gave us the first online lesson free to see if it we wanted to continue with it. He is a natural at communicating with kids, keeps it very fun, and has been great at getting our 8 year old started with piano.

I have been playing music since I was 3 years old and have been teaching for the last 5 years. I set up every lesson plan to match what the student would like to learn as well as making sure to meet the parents goals and expectations. I work with all ages and all levels. I also work very well with those that have special needs such as Autism. Every lesson is engaging and exciting, it is never a dull moment.

About April

I picked up music when I was very young and have never looked back. I started with the piano and then moved on to the violin, of which I competed regularly in up until high school. In high school I switched the viola and found it to me even more amazing. During high school I competed again in music

"Miss Fawn (as we call her) has consistently shown professionalism, enthusiasm, and patience in teaching our boys how to play the piano. Each week she goes above and beyond in keeping their attention and helping them learn in a calm, fun and entertaining manner. We enjoy her kind-hearted spirit as she shows them new techniques and insists on them perfecting the ones they've previously learned. Miss Fawn constantly leads by examples with high, yet attainable expectations that push our boys to the next level. We highly recommend Fawn for anyone searching for an instructor with poise, personality, a wealth of knowledge and sincere passion for her craft."

"We have come to know Vasiliy as a very knowledgeable, patient, and dedicated teacher. My daughter was only 5 when she had her first piano lessons, and I was interested, most of all, in understanding whether her interest in music and the piano in a common room in our building was mature enough to begin music lessons - or not. Vasiliy gave me a very knowledgeable assessment of my daughter's readiness to begin studying music, and then went on to give her piano lessons that were right for her level and age. He definitely developed my daughter's eagerness to learn more, and left her looking forward very much to her weekly piano class. We can wholeheartedly recommend Vasily."

"I had wanted to know how to play piano for years. When I found "Uncle Dave's" Music after trying to learn from others, I was very happy. Not only because he made learning the piano fun, but made it easy to learn! He had used mnemonic ways as well to help with learning different keys and chords.
Dave also taught me "bass guitar." I also took voice lessons from him! When I sang in front of an audience, they were asking, "Where did you get a voice like that?"
I had to tell them about "Uncle Dave's Music." Dave is fun and patient with teaching. I would recommend him to anyone seriously wanting to learn."

"David L. Was highly recommended to us by multiple people. He taught my two daughters piano for 1 1/2 years before we said a tearful goodbye as he moved to Texas. David L has a perfectly magical way in communicating to young students. He always spoke positively and found something good to say about any piece they played. He would then very positively guide them towards the correct way of playing. My shy, nervous girls thrived. It is truly going to be a challenge finding his replacement, David L. is an amazing person and teacher."

"I've been taking piano lessons from Fawn for 2 years and she is an absolutely wonderful piano teacher. She is very friendly and supportive, which makes it easy for me to learn from her. She is able to tailor the lessons to her students ability and has an incredible amount of patience with slow learners like myself:)
She pays a lot of attention to playing technique and offers a lot of useful tips to improve your hand position, place faster, stay in tempo, sight read etc. Fawn also teaches you learn how to read music which is a must if you are serious about learning to play the piano.
I'm very lucky to have found a great teacher like Fawn and I strongly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a fun teacher, who moves you quickly and erriciently to start piano lessons with."

"Fawn is great with kids. She's great with adults too. My kids love her, my husband and I also take lessons and love her too. She's very thorough in her teaching and advancement is fast and fun. We never have to ask out kids to practice, even after 2 years! Never experienced that with the other teachers. Fawn is also very humble. She has a stellar music career, but you would never know it by her down to earth personality. HIGHLY recommend her to any child or adult wanting to pursue piano, songwriting or voice."
