It's easy to say that Scott knows what he's talking about, he has plenty of experience and does a great job breaking things down to a simpler form. I've enjoyed my first month's classes and look forward to gaining a repertoire with him.

A solid, artistic, and flexible piano technique from the beginning. One of the fundamental parts in learning to play piano is to learn the basics of piano technique, which includes proper posture of the body when sitting to play piano, proper fingers, hands, and arms position. The development of the arm and hand flexibility in order to learn the legato and staccato performance from the beginning of the piano studies.

Throughout my 20 years of teaching experience I have developed different methods for children and adults to build a flexible and artistic piano technique that has worked with all my students.

The proper use of the arm rotation, wrist flexibility and how the wrists and arms help to lead the direction of the phrases are fundamentals to attain a beautiful and rich tone .

Great teacher! Knowledgeable and patient
Carly S.
My daughters and I have been taking lessons with Jesus for over 6 months now. I have been absolutely thrilled with Jesus’s lessons for both me and my two daughters. We have learned A LOT about the etiquette and technique of piano - including how to read music and properly position ourselves/our hands when playing. It’s not just about the music - it’s about how music transforms us and has the power to bring so much joy! Jesus is a very patient and caring teacher. I truly enjoy having him in our home and the girls are always excited for their lessons.

During this COVID crisis, Jesus has done his absolute best to teach us through Zoom lessons. He is always flexible, easy to talk to and fun to work with.

I would HIGHLY recommend Jesus to anyone looking for a dedicated and exceptionally trained teacher, who is always on time and excited to watch you succeed.

Thank you, Jesus!!! We adore you!!

Rachel was such a pleasure to work with.
Very knowledgeable and patient. Definitely a great teacher and would recommend her to everyone. It was very easy to work with her. Our girls loved learning from her and always looked forward to class days with her.
Ashley
Rachel is an amazing, encouraging, and patient piano teacher. As an adult picking up piano for the first time it was a bit intimidating to me, but she makes it fun and allows you to go at your own pace. You can definitely tell she has a passion for music and it comes across in the way in which she teaches.

My base curriculum includes a wide range of tactics from ear-training, sight-reading, music theory, and learning classical tunes or modern pop songs! Students we'll start with learning the base techniques: posture, hand position, and rhythm. I always incorporate games for beginners to reinforce the fundamentals they're learning. Once the techniques are established, we move on to learning how to read music and learning different pieces of repertoire.

I work with each student to find out how they learn and what their interests are to develop the best plan for them.

About Montana

I graduated from Longwood University (Go Lancers!) with a Bachelor's of Music in Performance and a Minor in Business Administration. I absolutely love everything to do with music! While at Longwood, I performed with the Wind Symphony for four years, participated in the pit orchestra for one of Long

"Great with Kids / Great with Teaching Piano

I strongly recommend Kit for piano lessons. She has tons of experience with children and is a mother herself now. Furthermore, her expertise of piano music suits her for teaching. With a little practice at home, Kit will strengthen you from a beginner piano level to intermediate piano level and further."
