About Keith

Hi, my name is Keith and I have been involved in music from an early age. I love playing and teaching piano. I started taking lessons at the age of 9, and soon added trumpet and French Horn to my list of instrumental music lessons. I continued, through High School and College, taking music classes

Keith was a good teacher to our son, he was patient and kind. Our son learned a lot from him, we hope in the future to use him again, if the opportunity arises. Thanks Keith!

Keith is an amazing teacher. My 7 year old son likes him very much. Before the lessons I worried our boy couldn’t build his interest in playing piano, just lose his enthusiasm after a while as the 7 years old always did. But Keith make me totally worry free, my son likes him very much, and he really knows how to build the kid’s interests and confidence while learning. Now my son enjoyed himself very much with Keith in their piano time. We are so lucky to find Keith.

We had four in-home lessons with Keith and he never once arrived on time. And not like 5 minutes late because of bad traffic or something. Once he was 40 minutes late, and another time he was 45 minutes late. For an hour lesson. At first I though there was some confusion because the time on take lessons was slightly different than the time we agreed to (he asked if we could start earlier than the time slot that was listed, and I agreed) but after speaking with him about it, we were both on the same page as to what time the lesson *should* begin, he just never arrived on time. He seems to be very overbooked and busy and does not respect his clients’ time. He told me that the disparity of arriving on time or a half hour late is “superfluous,” so if you hire him, be prepared to have a wide window of when he could show up. My kids liked him as a teacher, which is why I kept giving him chances and trying to work out scheduling issues (I offered to move our lessons to a different time, but he insisted the time we were at was fine) but in the end, things could not be resolved.

Private Piano Teacher

I have been teaching piano for many years. As a child I never had any formal piano lessons until a teacher at camp taught me how to harmonize chords; in high school and college I learned all the theory required. While musicality is certainly a gift, I wish I'd had the encouragement of a teacher earlier, and now I really enjoy watching students progress as they master the instrument and at the same time develop a firm grasp of theory and reading music.

About Lon

I am a certified teacher who has taught, along with high school English and college English and ESL, instrumental ensemble and music appreciation classes in schools and years of individual lessons in piano, flute and saxophone. I also taught piano in Beni-Mellal, Morocco while with the Peace Corps

Lon is extremely talented, patient and thorough. He can teach absolute beginners (such as I) very well, and makes you practice till you're confident with the notes. In the meantime, he encourages you even when you think you're getting nowhere with a new, baffling instrument. He is flexible and accommodates schedule changes as needed.

I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation in sight reading, technique and music theory. I follow a lesson book when teaching but I also teach how to improvise, and allow students to bring in the music they want to learn.

I had such an amazing experience taking voice lessons with Zarina. She has an incredible voice and unmatched talent. She is a skilled and patient teacher. Her techniques are very professional. I learned how to access different muscles when singing, which greatly improved the sound and strength of my voice. She has an awesome personality and it is a pleasure to learn with her!
Nettayah
My girl was 3 years old when she started taking lessons with Zarina, the lessons included introducing the different notes and rhythms , through stories and a full body movement that was perfect for my 3years concentration span.
My daughter fell in love with Zarina and piano lessons which made her want to continue with piano lessons after Zarina moved .

Zarina is a fabulous music teacher with great professionality and knowledge of her instruments. She is also a beautiful singer/musician.

"I've taken 3 lessons with Candida and I am blown away. I started taking lessons when I was a child, but had given up the instrument going into adulthood. Candida has helped awaken a love for music that I never knew I had. We are studying technique, music theory, and learning methods which are allowing me to not only learn faster, but appreciate and understand the progress that I am making. This multiples the enjoyment that I am getting from the instrument. Candida also does a good job of motivating you and contextualizing your progress and your goals. I am very excited that I am taking lessons with her!"

"Kathryn’s dedication to making sure I’m getting to practice not only what is necessary skills-wise, but also what interests me is invaluable. I really feel like she is genuinely interested in supporting me in my goal to play better. It’s also extremely helpful when she finds clever ways of explaining a new concept that I may not understand at first. Plus, I can tell she really knows what she’s talking about whenever I have a question. Highly recommend!"

"I was looking for a vibrant, fun piano teacher for my kids as they were not motivated by strict teachers who also taught them boring songs they could not relate to. What a gift of a teacher we found in Catherine. Not only is she warm, kind, caring with an easy rapport for kids and adults alike but she is also an excellent piano and voice instructor. This talented lady is a professional singer too who is well versed in Broadway show tunes and opera too. She also instill her students with a sense of musical rhythm and is holistic in her approach to kids who might need a little physical warm up before class in order to attend better. Catherine’s voice is magnificent and we were fortunate enough to attend a show where she played the lead for The Taming of the Shrew.
She is a professional voice and classical opera teacher too and this complements her piano instruction .. A perk is she can travel to your home or does lesions in her own home . In addition
is a passionate, excellent voice teacher for anyone who is looking to hone their vocal skills and talents. I wholeheartedly recommend Catherine - her lessons are more than just teaching - she is a true mentor and educator in every sense of the word."

"As an adult with no former knowledge or lessons on piano, I was a bit hesitant to find a teacher. But after the first lesson with Troy I knew that concern was completely unfounded. Troy is great at helping the student progress at their own preferred pace, while still ensuring that each lesson provides significant progress. In my experience he is very flexible with an unpredictable schedule, and is reliable and consistent about communication. I would recommend troy for any piano student, especially those starting later in life like myself"

Kathy is extremely knowledgeable about piano and music. I am thrilled with the fact that you are not pressured into learning, but are enthusiastic about completing lessons simply because of the approach Kathy takes to teaching.
