Have you ever wanted to learn how to play the piano? Well, your dream is about to come true! I have a beautiful Kohler & Campbell Upright in my living room and you get to play it!
When I meet a new student, my goal is first to find out your personal music preferences and goals. Then I usually start with warm-ups, exercises and scales. You get to choose from my wonderful literature of music on your path of discovery! If you want me to I'll keep records of your musical as well as your technical progress. But above all it's important to me that you have fun! So let's get started -your dreams are within reach!

Chrissy was incredibly helpful in determining how I learn and then devising a series of lesson plans that help me learn in the easiest and fastest manner. It's been great so far and I expect to make quick progress because of her skills and personality.
Joseph A.
Chrissy is a very competent and understanding teacher. As I wasn’t a typical student for her, she quickly changed her lesson structure and tried to cover content in different musical genres. She was patient with my progress and encouraging. I think I learned quiet a lot of information and hope to continue my lessons hopefully in the near future.

I am a working musician who plays organ at church every Sunday. My piano lessons are based on learning material you want to play in comparison to building your musicianship off what direction I think you should go in. Theory & technique shouldn’t have to be a dreadful process & neither should learning how to play the piano.

I teach the beginning (and possibly the intermediate) piano student how to read music, general music theory, but I also teach how to read and play chords. I want to give the student a feeling of independence during their practice time. I also want the student to develop an excellent ear. Learning chords and their progressions helps the student free up their playing in a way that it give them the ability to noodle on their own, playing away from the music, as well. These lessons provide the student more than just reading from a page of music.

Janice has been incredibly helpful in helping me achieve my lifelong dream of playing the piano. She is very patient, explains things clearly, and always picks the exactly right lessons and materials to help me understand and practice the things that are challenging to me. She is also really good at understanding what I enjoy and tailoring lessons to make them both fun while learning the basic foundations I need to grow. I highly recommend Janice for piano lessons! She loves music and teaching and it shows!

My lessons are personalized to each student, with a general musical education in mind. Students not only learn how to play a wide and diverse repertoire, but they also learn theory and ear training as a way to better understand the music they play, and the music they hear.

I have been teaching privately for over 10 years, and also teach at a local university; I have taught students of all ages, all levels and from all backgrounds.

I can help prepare for auditions, pass Certificate of Merit exams (with MTAC), enroll in SYMF, and much more.

I am so glad to have Andree as my piano teacher. I am an adult beginner. Andree always explained my question patiently and also provided a lot of helpful background info to bridge the gap. She also pick the good songs that help improving my skills and at the same time keep the class and practicing entertained.

We love Miss Alex! We started weekly 30 minute in-person lessons and have recently moved to virtual. Lessons are going well with our 8 year old. Miss Alex is very sweet towards our daughter and communicates well with us parents. Our daughter so looks forward to her weekly lessons and we love that she is being challenged. Beyond the lessons, our daughter has music theory and regular practices. We believe it's the right amount of work to grow her musically.

We LOVE Athena. Our 4 girls take lessons with her and our girls are already playing songs and they are so enthusiastic to learn with Athena. She brings out the wonderful element of the love of learning music with my girls. Athena is so positive and encouraging. If I could give her more than 5 starts I would!! Thank you Athena!!

I also want to thank Steve at Take Lessons for his professionalism. He coordinated everything for us. It was so easy and a very smooth process."

He was very flexible and willing to create a lesson plan that worked well for her so she remained engaged. He also had a great deal of patience, yet was also very persistent in helping her master certain concepts. I would definitely recommend him to others."

"I don't quite know how to describe working with Fawn other than the fact that once you start lessons with her, you'll never want to leave. Fawn really furthers your understanding of music in general and how to play the piano. She is absolutely excellent at music and at her job. Beyond that, Fawn is a genuine, kind hearted person who will help you patiently and attentively through each and every one of your problems till you suddenly realize that everything makes sense to you! I recommend Fawn for anyone with even the slightest bit of interest in playing the piano because I assure you that Fawn will nurture that interest and turn it into a passion!"
