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.

Private Classical Piano Teacher

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

Pop songs, jazz ballads, classical pieces, or movie/game themes, there must be something you are interested in playing and get better!

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

I recommend just starting with a single 15-minute lesson to see if we are good fits for each other and start a roadmap to progress toward your goals! My long-term pricing is negotiable if we work together for an extended time.

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in 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. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

Veronnica P.
Practical, efficient, patient, supportive. Matthew is able to assess quickly and keep things progressing forward while still highlighting fundamentals. Great for adults. Gentle for those on the lower end of confidence with an instrument.
Kevin C.
Matt taught me for a 3 month period and helped me drastically with learning how to improvise guitar solos. I can't thank Matt enough for his help in helping me with a rather unorthodox time to start getting lessons. Each week he told me to bring 3 songs with a guitar solo I would like to learn in different genres and each week we broke down the solos for me to practice and gather their techniques. Thank you so much Matt!
Tejas A.
My 9 year old son had his first session yesterday, and he loved it. Matthew is great, responsive and especially patient! My son is looking forward to having more sessions!

Private Classical Piano Teacher

I do believe that classical piano instruction is the best way for anyone to learn how to play an instrument. Individual instruction encourages the growth of excellent music skills, and provides a foundation for music literacy. I will develop individualized programs for piano study, offering instruction that best suits the student. Private lessons can offer flexibility to learn the type of music students are personally the most interested in.

"I took piano lessons with Daniela for 4 years. It was a very valuable experience. Daniela is not only very passionate about music, but is also an extraordinary instructor. She assigned me many classical pieces that really pushed me to advance in my musical techniques and skills. Additionally, Daniela organizes two recitals every year for family and friends. If you are looking for a well-rounded instructor who truly cares about her profession and her student, then Daniela is the instructor for you!"

"I have been working with Fawn for 4 years and have passed 11 levels of music theory and note spelling and 8 levels of lesson books with her. I can play anything I want, including high-level classical pieces, pop songs, movie soundtrack pieces, ragtime and jazz (I don't like jazz very much). Even though Fawn is very fun and can be silly, she has just the right amount of strict to her. She is quite fun to be with and I have gotten very far on piano (and other instruments now) and will continue to excel with her as my teacher. If I could give her more stars, I would."

"As a beginner, taking lessons with Leanna has offered a structured approach to learning the fundamentals of piano, along with developing good technique, which has made the process less daunting. After only a couple of lessons, I feel more confident not only in my playing, but also in understanding elements of music theory (like reading sheet music) that I expected to be more difficult to grasp."

His skill has progressed so much, sometimes his interest level goes up and down but Gabe always knows how to make it fun again with new songs to learn and then he wants to play and practice all day. He also loves performing in Gabe’s recitals and the talent show at school. Gabe is so talented and patient, we feel so lucky our friend referred us to him!"
