Private Classical Piano Teacher

Hello! As a pedagogue I aim to teach and help developing notation, sight reading skills, ear training, counting and rhythmical exercises, different types of technique.
I have taught many students that took part in competitions and won the lead prizes, played in concerts, masterclasses and exams. I have worked with students of various levels in piano playing: from beginners to advanced.
After analyzing their skill level, I design and try to organize lessons in a way to accommodate each child’s method of learning while trying to motivate students to achieve their highest potential. The repertoire varies from student to student and may include even some basic pop songs that are possible to play.

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.

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!

Smart, enthusiastic, patient. I'm an older adult who has some basic piano ability (very basic), and within moments Grady evaluated and then clicked in with my needs. I suspect he would be perfect for children also.

Grady is the most energetic, caring, and fun piano instructor I ever encountered. He is very patient and goes over the basics when needed. As a adult learner, Grady not only meets you where you're at but takes his time to go over any issues you may have. I highly recommend Grady !!!

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!"

"Emil was the teacher I was looking for. I have tried to learn piano on my own for a while now, but most of the time it became overwhelming. I wasn't sure I was going in the right direction, or if I was learning what I should know in the right order. So far, what Emil had done for me was to take what I've known already and add much more to it. He also has started to correct some bad habits I became accustomed to, which I would have never picked up on my own.He's very knowledgeable, and ties in music theory during the lesson. He's down to earth, throws in some jokes to lighten the mood, and create an enjoyable learning experience."
