Private Classical Piano Teacher

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.

Great online lesson! I haven't played the oboe in 20 years. Prior to my first lesson with Grace, she provided contact info for a reputable oboe dealer as well as a source of reeds - so I would be ready to get started. During my first lesson, I played a few different oboes I had on trial from the oboe dealer. I played, and we discussed the pros and cons of each. Grace also suggested ways to improve my embouchure, as well as relaxation techniques for holding my instrument - to avoid fatigue. I was pleasantly surprised at how much ground we covered during the first lesson!

I have made amazing progress in just a week thanks to Grace getting right to the heart of the matter, even to the point of helping me with an online repair.

I believe everyone can and should make music! For piano lessons, we will focus on different elements of technique and musical expression, such as scales, arpeggios, and hand posture. Depending on each student’s goals, we will work on a song
or songs which could culminate for a recital, audition, achieving specific goals in a specific curriculum or just for fun! I teach beginner through advanced and can also assist students with chord reading, sight singing, piano theory, composing their own music, singing along with themselves while playing the piano, praise music, lead sheets, etc. in addition to traditional piano technique and music. Before I pursued singing full time I was a pianist for 15 years and still professionally play and accompany! Looking forward to working with you!

Ms. Miya is an incredible piano teacher. She is full of energy, love, and genuine enthusiasm in what she does. In addition to the technical aspects of music, she is talented in encouraging self expression, emotion, and telling a story within playing piano. Miya has both a friendly but professional demeanor and I would strongly recommend her to any student looking for a teacher.
Victoria
Miya is an excellent voice teacher. She really connected with my daughter and inspired her. Miya went above and beyond. She came to the solo ensemble competition and gave my daughter a fantastic pep talk that helped her relax and give a great performance. I was also very impressed with how professional Miya conducted herself. She was younger than some of our previous music instructors but she was fabulous!
Ben
I had a great experience taking voice lessons from Miya! She is an amazing, thoughtful, and talented teacher. Before I took lessons, I was unconfident in singing alone or singing solos. Since taking lessons with Miya, I have gained much more confidence as a soloist, and have grown so much as a singer. I am very grateful to Miya for all that she has taught me!

"Ms. Alty is a very patient yet thorough piano teacher. Since we left our hometown for Houston, it's been really difficult getting a piano teacher that matches the same talent as our previous teacher. We had gone through 4 teachers in Houston. However finding Ms. Alty was like finding a rare gem at the top of the mountain.
She is very knowledgeable and has the skills to get a child to listen and actually want to practice. My children have improved tremendously and actually started playing more complicated musical piece.
My children love Ms. Alty and always look forward to having their piano class. I would recommend Ms. Alty if you're looking for a very musically knowledgeable and talented piano teacher who is both firm and gentle when teaching,"

She looks forward to her lessons every week and when I come home from work, I find her practicing on her own. I'm so grateful to Mr. Sal for not only teaching Sophia music and piano, but also for teaching her at an early age hard work and perseverance. I highly recommend him!"

"As a beginner, taking lessons with Leanna has offered a structured approach to learning the fundamentals of piano, along with developing good technique, which has made the process less daunting. After only a couple of lessons, I feel more confident not only in my playing, but also in understanding elements of music theory (like reading sheet music) that I expected to be more difficult to grasp."
