I teach rock keyboard with a focus on fun. I've spent many, many hours playing songs from the Beatles, Spoon, Radiohead, Sufjan Stevens, Bon Iver and many more. I received my piano proficiency from Knox College where I majored in music.

My beginning students always start with a song that they love. As soon as those songs are internalized the application of scales will become a necessity, but will never take precedent over rhythm and feel.

Are you ready to start your adventure into the world of piano?

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 .

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

I love tailoring lessons to my students! Music is personal and I want to make sure you're learning what you're interested in or need to learn in order to prepare you for auditions or keep up in groups you play in. I always ask students for a list of music they're listening to or want to learn - nothing's off limits!

While I prefer working out of Piano Adventures Method Books for piano students, I'm happy to work out of materials you already own.

In following years, I did post graduate work at Alverno College and went on to complete Suzuki teacher training in Suzuki Books 1-4. Besides teaching private violin, viola, and piano

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.

"Neither my daughter ( age 8) nor I have previous experience with playing any instruments. Mr. Akers has been working with my daughter for nearly 2 months, and she has made impressive progress. He is very professional, a skilled teacher, and makes understanding how to read the music and play the piano a pleasant experience. I was so impressed with my daughter's progress that I have started taking lessons as well. After just 2 sessions, I recognize the keys and can read/play a very basic piece (Mary Had A Little Lamb/Frere Jacques). I would certainly recommend giving Mr. Akers a try if your are interested in learning to play the piano-I am sure you won't be disappointed."

"The reason I came to Mr. Brian was that I got switched to various teachers when I was taking piano lessons at a local music school. It was hard for me to adapt so many teaching styles. The school didn't even allow me to take a week off when my ex-teacher was sick! The owner of the school forced me to try out the other teachers. Horrible experience. After getting irritated, I was told by my former teacher that she had to leave for China for a few months and I just didn't want to wait for so long in order to resume my lessons. My friend told me he studies with Mr. Brian and I just wanted to try him out and I couldn't be happier! He has an interesting and unique way of teaching; he can always come up with vivid descriptions of sound. We'd both laugh at it but it helped my playing!! He always made me think and try to understand the meaning behind the notes and harmonies. We worked a lot on piano technique, arm movement, weight transfer and did a lot of fingerwork. He had me play a lot of Czerny studies and scales.
I have been with him for almost two years now and I am currently trying to play some Chopin etudes. Under his tutelage, I have been given the chance to participate in various competitions. I had the chance to perform in public at prestigious venues like Carnegie and Merkin Hall. I never thought I could come this far. Mr. Brian inspired me to major in piano performance in college!
In retrospect, I wish I hadn't gone to the local music school at all...

I highly recommend Mr. Brian. He will make your fingers "sing"!
The best mentor & a life changing figure."

"I'm usually very skeptical about reviews, but thought I would give Andrew a try. I signed my son up for piano lessons with Andrew, and I want to say that every good review written about Andrew was true and correct. Andrew showed amazing patience with my son and made the lessons fun and exciting. His passion, creativity, and excitement for music shows every time you meet with him. His knowledge of the subject and teaching skills are evident in the results shown forth in the progress of his students. I can verify through this experience that he's the real deal and knows his stuff. I don't have to drag my son to lessons, because he's always excited about going to learn new things from Mr. Andrew. I catch my son playing the piano on his own at home and composing songs at the age of 5. I would recommend anyone to go to Andrew Young for lessons whether you're a child, an adult, or have special needs. I am confident you will also enjoy the experience and learning you will gain from this amazing and talented man. Way to go, Andrew, you have my vote! :)"
