"Experienced piano teacher of 30 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of classical piano skills. I specialize classical, jazz and contemporary music typically use Hal Leonard books, and also have the following tools available to use during lessons: sound recording equipment, sheet music, and more.

About Kelvin
I am a highly organized, outcome-driven and motivated professional musician and educator with solid experience in the classroom. For the past 25 years, I have been employed with Amati music academy and seven years on the faculty of University of St Francis.
I am very comfortable with all aspects of the current music syllabus, including teaching musical concepts (such as duration, pitch, dynamics, tone color, texture and structure) as well as performance, composition. I am fully qualified, with a Bachelor of Education in Music, Double Masters in music performance and education from University of Nottingham.
I am proficient in classical, jazz and Celtic fiddle violin and possess solid skills in piano (grade 8-13) Royal conservatory system.
Throughout my teaching career, I have been driven to help students achieve their very best. I str
ongly believe that music has the power to change lives – to enhance the social, cultural and spiritual lives of people, and serve as a profound medium of personal expression. Professional perform experience: The Chicago, Natalie Cole, Smokey Robinson, Three tours with Moody Blues, YoYo Ma etc....
The most important thing I look for in a student is communication skills, as well as talent. I like to nurture students and help identify their individual strengths, which is a key factor in shaping a musical persona that will make its mark both on and offstage. I do not advocate a uniform technique for all students. Physical differences and learning styles are always taken into consideration. Potential is as important to me as early achievements and experience. My goal is to help students become self-sufficient, discriminating artists. I discuss practice techniques often and develop individualized scale routines. I encourage initiative and expressive musicality as well as precision. Above all, music needs to bring obvious joy to the student, regardless of the difficulties.”

Kelvin is a phenomenal teacher of classical guitar. Our teenage son wanted to take classical lessons for a while, after having happily done a couple years with School of Rock. He and Kelvin meshed well, and I feel our son learned a lot over the course of a couple more years.

When one of us had a schedule conflict, we had the ability to do a lesson via Skype. Let me tell you, that came in mighty handy in the winter of 2019.

Schedule with Kelvin; I am certain you'll be glad that you did.

A beginner piano student will have the opportunity to learn the basics of reading sheet music. First, however, we will focus on playing simple one handed songs and focusing on becoming comfortable with the keys and treble clef note reading. Afterwards we would move onto learning major and minor chords, major and minor scales, pentatonic scales, rhythm patterns, and then finally practice more difficult songs by reading sheet music while playing treble and bass clef together. This will provide the learner with opportunities to play songs that they enjoy.

About Michael
Hello everybody, my name is Michael and I have been playing both the guitar and piano since I was four years old. I am a full-time music instructor, and I also perform frequently on the weekend. My main musical interests include americana and country music, but I have spent time learning several other types of music as well. My favorite style to teach is the blues. I am looking to teach beginner to intermediate students and help them learn/perfect the basic and intermediate skills of guitar and piano.

Ms. Kristiana brings our family the joy of playing and practicing piano. Both my 5 year old daughter and I are her students. Ms. Kristiana knows how to motivate young piano players as well as accommodate and respect and help adult players trying to pick up piano again. As for kids, she is extremely patient, kind, open minded and fun. She made my daughter feel comfortable from the trial lesson and their teacher-student dynamic improves with each lesson.

Starting piano lessons as an elementary school student, I studied for 13 years. Since then, my piano skills have gotten rusty, but Ms. Kristiana has helped me start back up again. She came up with a plan with a practice book and a piece book that I can enjoy, and she also helped me learn the piece I had been longing to learn. Maybe that piece is above my level at this point, but she patiently guided me to go through it and now I am half way to mastering it.

We are glad to have met her and to be under her guidance.

About Lexie L.

Berwyn, IL

View Full Profile

Greetings! I have 16 years of teaching experience as a faculty member of the fabled Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago. I offer lessons in piano, voice, theory, songwriting, and transcription with a specialty in helping artists learn to accompany themselves on an instrument while singing. I am willing to work with anyone on just about anything! Lessons are tailored to fit. Note reading (or an interest in reading) is a plus but not required; traditional notation as well as standard "lead sheet" notation with chord symbols, as desired. I provide a collaborative experience in a safe, friendly, encouraging atmosphere for ages 6 and beyond. Whether you are advanced or a total beginner, every song has a lesson inside.

About Lexie
I stumbled into teaching by accident sixteen years ago and never left! That's the truth. In 1993, I moved to Chicago to pursue a Jazz Studies degree at DePaul, became a student of the late great vocal guru Ed Farran, and began my journey as a working musician. Several jobbing gigs and a handful of TV jingles later, I decided to form a band of my own to showcase the fruits of my passion for songwriting. I was asked to be a temporary substitute teacher at the Old Town School of Folk Music in 2003, never imagining how transformative my experience there would be, and ended up staying on as a voice & piano faculty member for sixteen years and counting.

It turns out teaching is fulfilling, fun, and infectious.  My style in the classroom is informed largely by the exceptional teachers I've been fortunate enough to work with over the years, but
I believe I have learned the most about music from time spent with my students. Maintaining a collaborative and nurturing enviroment in our lessons is important to me for that reason.

Piano students of all ages can expect a well-rounded approach to learning their instrument in a way that is tailored to the student's personality and learning style. Sometimes we will follow a book, but often we won’t. There will be theory and technique elements to each lesson designed to enhance the student’s understanding of what they’re playing, but the focus will be on the joy of execution. A student’s willingness to learn to read music is immensely helpful but not an absolute requirement.

Voice students will practice a wide range of topics from the physical (healthy singing techniques) to the psychological (vocal inhibition issues) to the artistic (style; finding your own voice). Singers who are interested in taking their skill set a step further can learn how to get around a keyboard, understand key signatures, and write their own transcriptions.

My musical compass is always pointing lessons toward this idea: What can I do to help my students feel empowered and equipped to make music confidently when they go off to college/when they’re 45-years old/ when they’re retired? For more advanced or ambitious students the query goes further: How can I challenge and inspire my students to get the most out of their instrument and their relationship to music in general? My main goal in every lesson is to point the student toward a life-long love of self-propelled music appreciation.

Playing the piano is something I have enjoyed since I was in the third grade. I loved music so much, I picked up the flute, as well, a few years later and joined my high school band. Since 1996, I have enjoyed teaching children who have a passion to learn as I did. With a degree in elementary education, I have experience both as an elementary school teacher as well as a music teacher of piano and flute. I studied the piano under seven different piano instructors and the flute under 3 instructors. As both an academic teacher and music teacher, I have watched how children who are trained in music flourish and excel in their academics, their creative skills, time management, discipline/character, their ability to concentrate, development of hand-muscle/hand-eye coordination, self-esteem, and ability to relax and cope with stress. I am constantly observing this in my own children's lives as they take piano lessons, and it has been so rewarding!!! I am looking forward to the opportunity to

About Dana
I have been playing the piano for 31 years and the flute for 29....these are still some of my favorite hobbies. As early as elementary school, I was privileged to participate in numerous masterclasses, recitals, and state and national competitions. In high school and college, I began accompanying for choirs, instrumentalists, and vocalists. In addition to teaching lessons and playing for my own relaxation and pleasure, I have thoroughly enjoyed using my skills in my local church for the past 15 years as a church and choir accompanist, as well as organizing and participating in flute ensembles. No matter what style you prefer to develop, it is always important to begin with a strong foundation in music theory and proper technique, which is where I begin every student. What is the perfect age to begin piano lessons? Many piano instructors I
have talked to have concluded 3rd grade is the sweet spot for most kids. My experience over the years has definitely confirmed this. Before that age, kids seem to progress very slowly. However, there are some kids out there who are advanced in their development and may be able to begin earlier. My preferred piano curriculum are the Bastien Piano Series and Faber Piano Adventures. From there, we will explore all kinds of other fun stuff!
