Students will learn basic piano skills such as hand placement, note reading, note values, pedal use, major and minor scales, expressions, etudes, pieces, memory work, music history, performance techniques, and most of all to have fun learning the piano. I will expect students to have a minimum 67 note keyboard with sustain pedal, or a good piano to use for personal practice time. Each student should spend at least 20-30 minutes daily to start. They must purchase the recommended books.

Paul has been very patient and wonderful with my 6 year old son who has just started lessons.
Lorenzo S.
My first lesson was great. Mr. Paul was very patient and judged my skill level before making a lesson plan. Initially I was nervous, because I have never taken lessons before, but that quickly went away. I can definitely tell that he knows his stuff when it comes to teaching. He a great teacher and conversationalist.
Kennedy B.
Paul was very pleasant. He thoroughly explained things to my daughter in a manner that she could understand. He listened to her play and they also played together.

This was her first flute lesson with Paul, but she's already looking forward to the next lesson.

Wonderful first lesson! Thank you.
Rachel Pasquini
We recently started piano lessons with Ms Lydia and we can’t say enough good things. Our daughter Emerson asks each day if Ms Lydia is coming to play piano. And we believe that is because of Ms Lydia's positive attitude, happy personality and ability to make learning music so much fun! Ms Lydia has already taught my daughter so much in regards to music and reading notes. Emerson enjoys each lesson so much that she practices the piano on her own. We are so grateful for Ms Lydia. She’s engaging, caring and her passion for music is contagious!
Winslow
Lydia is a great teacher! She selects great music for my level and offers me suggestions to improve my ability. I enjoy practicing everyday and she never gets frustrated when I make mistakes but shows me correct fingering.

I began playing at 13 years old, and have taken lessons from many other teachers and now I'm 69 and have MS, she does a great job with me!

My daughter has been taking piano lessons with Ms. Sally for a year and a half now and it is great to see her progress. Ms. Sally is very knowledgeable, patient and easy to talk to. She encourages you to stay and watch during practice so you are aware of what is being taught.
Remy
I chose Sally to teach my granddaughter the fundamentals of piano playing and she's done a amazing job . I have to commend Ms. Sally on her knowledge and patience on her teaching ability. I would highly recommend Ms.Sally to any of my friends and or relatives
Kaitlin Oliveri
Sally has truly been the most wonderful instructor! I started taking lessons a few months ago with her. I played piano when I was younger but I wanted to get back into playing before my twins arrive. I am almost 8 months pregnant at this point and Sally has been kind, compassionate and so helpful in helping me remember the piano skills I didn't know I had in me and haven't used in many years. She challenged me, taught me things I never learned when I was younger and helped me improve across every lesson. I'd highly recommend Sally as a piano instructor for all ages and skill levels and I look forward to working with her again in the future!

She is patient, challenging, and passionate about music. She is experienced with advanced students (helped me earn a distinction on the ABRSM Grade 7 piano practical exam), and taught me to love piano and music in general. I really enjoyed my lessons with her!"

"I had the good fortune of sending my younger daughter to Ms.Melody for piano lessons.

I don't know where to begin, since she has many qualities!

From a knowledge perspective, she is very technical, articulate and knows her stuff. She has certificates from both ABRSM and Trinity and so is well versed
with the technicalities and syllabi of those exam boards. She is not only a pianist but plays the guitar and is a voice coach.

But where she distinguishes herself is when she is engaged in teaching the children.

She is a good instructor and has the ability to change, adapt and customize lessons to each children's needs. She is friendly, but firm when needed and the kids love her. Her pleasant, friendly demeanor and easily approachable nature endears her to children and adult like. She inspires and instills confidence in children, so music lessons with Ms.Melody are never boring or tiresome for children.

We were sorry to see her move to Michigan but Virginia's loss is Michigan's gain!"
