In piano, we will begin with simple music designed to build strength and dexterity in your hands. We will begin learning to read music notes together, so don't worry if you never have before! However, I do recommend that young children are able to identify the alphabet and numbers 1-10 prior to starting piano. Reading is a plus!

In lessons, I use the Piano Adventures series, starting at the primer level with very young students. I will typically use the Lesson, Performance, Technique & Artistry, & Theory books available at each level to give every student the most comprehensive music education while building their piano playing ability. These four books are commonly sold as a package on amazon.com for a discounted rate.

In addition, I love to work with each student to meet his or her own personal goals. I am always happy to provide additional music from outside these core books! Some examples of things my students have requested over the years include Disney songs, video

Kristin does a beautiful job teaching piano and singing to my daughters. The two go hand in hand and she does a great job combining both. On a personal note, she has a beautiful, generous heart and gives my girls little prizes when they do very well.
Erin
Kristin is wonderful! My daughter loves singing with her and looks forward to every lesson! Kristin really cares about how her students are doing and gets to know them and their interests outside of their lessons. We were blown away that she remembered Isabel's birthday after only meeting with us a few times!
Isabel sings all the time. She tells me, mommy I have to practice so I can be famous like Ms Kristin! We are so lucky to have found her!

Did not care enough to plan ahead or get to know my granddaughter enough to individualize her weekly lessons. Very apparent that she failed to prepare ahead of time. Often late and cancelled class several times.

Susan is not only an accomplished musician, but she is also an amazing teacher and mentor. She elevated my daughter’s musicianship and helped her find her true potential as a classical pianist. My daughter’s success as a competitive pianist is due to Susan’s instruction, encouragement, and guidance. When we started lessons with Susan, we struck gold!
John
Susan is an experienced concert pianist with world-class expertise in the instrument, yet she is also an approachable educator + coach who has done a great deal to advance my technique and interpretation. I’m glad to have found her. Advanced pianists will be pleased to find someone who can help raise their game even further, but regardless of your skill level, I don’t think you’ll regret signing up with her.

Susan was a PERFECT match for me. I really hate leaving her great knowledge. She has poured out to me her expert knowledge. Unfortunately, I am unable to continue. Susan is a teaching jewel to be cherished.

I am trained in Russian technique using relaxation movements that prevent painful cramps in wrist and forearm. I have been teaching primarily children from age 4 in music schools and homes since 1987. I like to motivate them by letting them choose their favorites, like songs from Disney movies or some other popular songs. I am very patient and encouraging. I am happy when I see love for music growing in hearts of students.

About Katarina

I attended six years at State Conservatory and graduated with Magister degree from Comenius University in former Czechoslovakia. I performed during my college years with a chamber vocal-instrumental ensemble. I started teaching piano and music theory in 1987 at a music school and later I was giving

Katarina has been a fantastic teacher, helping me get to learn the basics of piano while teaching me how to play with a relaxed technique to preserve my hands and forearms -- I work on a computer all day so I will sometimes get cramped hands.
Jessica
Katarina is very knowledgeable about piano and theory, having studied and taught for many years. She uses the Russian technique and teaches excellent technical skill. She is patient and fair, and above all, a wonderful teacher!!
Regina
I have wanted to take piano lessons all my life but never had the time. Katarina has been very patient and caring with me. She’s an excellent teacher for me because she takes time, fully explains things, and has confidence in me that helps me to go further. I am so glad I have Katarina as my teacher. Thank you!

First time playing piano? Resuming after years or decades of not playing the piano? No matter your age or experience, you can always learn and improve!

I have close to 10 years of tutoring experience, helping children and adults embrace piano and music.

I recommend just starting with a single lesson to see if we are good fits for each other and start a roadmap to progress toward your goals! My rates is for a one-off session, so it is extremely negotiable if we work together regularly.

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have. However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. Or maybe the teacher/professor is not the best

Private Piano Teacher

Hello prospective students! The most important things are I love music and I work for you. I have a bachelor's degree in music composition and a piano performance minor from the Chicago College of Performing Arts.

I teach all ages from beginner to intermediate students. Lessons are catered to the goals of each student, no two lessons the same.

For young beginners I teach rhythm and pith and focus on ways to get them excited about music.

for older/intermediate students I offer lessons on piano performance, music theory and history, music composition and recording.

I believe that my job as teacher is to help you define your goals and achieve them. I am excited to teach piano performance, music theory and music history. I also have 5 years of professional recording experience for those who are interested in recording techniques and the industry. My philosophy towards teaching is spending ample time building a concrete foundation with core concepts to then build on. Please contact me ...

"Fawn has been teaching my 3 kids piano for about 2 1/2 years. They have advanced to a very high level within that time. She comes to our house once a week for about 2 hours each time. Fawn is professional, fun, positive, outgoing, funny, responsible, reliable, strict and punctual. Although she is extremely busy, she has rarely ever been late or had to reschedule. Fawn is a serious, yet fun teacher, and the kids learn a lot from her and they all adore her."

"I worked with Howard on improving my sight-reading and found that his techniques worked exceptionally well. His approach focuses on learning to break apart every component of reading individually so that it can be practiced and strengthened in isolation. After spending time doing this and then putting everything back together as a whole, I was amazed at how much better I was at everything.

We also worked on some classical repertoire and he had a similar approach to breaking down complicated passages and learning to practice them with relaxation and confidence. A lot of what he taught me I went on to carry forward in my own teaching and I still go back to those philosophies in my own playing today.

Howard is an excellent piano teacher, musician, and mentor. I cannot recommend him highly enough."
