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?

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

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.

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.

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 ...

Andrew teaches both my 8-year-old daughter (a beginner), as well as my 11-year-old daughter, who has been playing for several years. Aside from being highly competent, he makes the lesson stress-free, and fun for my children. We have opted, in the interim, to keep the lessons online, and Andrew has gone out of his way to ensure my girls feel engaged and excited about playing piano. I would highly recommend him as an instructor capable of handling all levels and abilities.
Anya, John H.
Great with my young kids, Andrew was easily able to hold their attention and we're looking forward to more lessons.

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.

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 .

"I’m a 37 year-old guy and I wasn’t sure it would be possible for me to pick up a new instrument, but Leni’s patience and easy going nature make it easy and fun. He’s such an inspiration.

I feel so privileged to have Leni as my teacher. He isn’t just some young guy fresh out of school who teaches you the basics. Leni is an educated and accomplished musician and his knowledge of music and the history of the classical music you work on is phenomenal. He’s the real deal.

One of the main things Leni focuses on is form. He teaches the Taubman Approach, which is an ergonomic way of using your hands to play. It makes it so much more comfortable to play and sets you up to learn faster and be able to play more difficult pieces as you progress.

Leni also teaches that learning a piece music is more than just learning the notes. He goes into the musicality of it and why the choices the composer made make sense. I also wasn’t really much into classical music, but the music he has me working on is so enjoyable, that practice doesn’t feel like work. It’s so exciting to see what the next piece is he’ll give me to work on.

5 satars all the way."

"Piano Review for Robert Hitz
As part of my goal in life is that when I turned 60 I wanted to have something creative that would enrich and fulfill the latter years of my life. Having watched my aging father play piano was an image I have always appreciated. My father had been my piano teacher as a child and I was ready to get back into piano. I found Robert Hitz, my piano teacher, through TakeLesson.com. I have been taking piano lessons with Robert now for 10 months. Takelessons.com really made it easy to find Robert who was only 5 miles from my home.

It has been the best 10 months that was totally unexpected. What I didn’t experience as a child, that I do now, is I have a genuine love of music that feels inherently inside me. My father and son are both musicians and I now realize I must have a natural instinct for music and a love I never knew.

Robert has made the experience absolutely wonderful with his natural gift for teaching and making you feel totally at ease when you feel totally illiterate and lacking confidence. While I learned piano as a child, I totally lost the ability to read music or remember any scales, chords or composition.

Here is what’s great about Robert. You learn everything you need to learn, but in an unconventional style. He has taught me everything from chord progressions, scales, reading music and being able to totally improvise my own piano compositions. From understanding the basics, he has enabled me to just sit at the piano and make beautiful music that I create. My husband has been in total support and awe of how far I have come in the short 10 month time.

I work full-time and truly have little time to practice. Again, Robert has a total appreciation for the busy life of his students and works around the fact that you may come back each week with having had little to no time to practice the prior lesson. One of the best parts of my lesson is when Robert “drives” and I get to play along improvising to his music. He picks a scale and we just play together. I call it doodling on the piano and it is really awesome to feel so free to just listen and play along making beautiful music together. I walk out of every lesson feeling so elated and motivated knowing I am getting better and better. Practicing is pure pleasure and dramatically reduces the stresses of life and work.

I have a new appreciation for listening to music. I’m an avid power walker and now I listen to piano music while I walk. We fill our home with music and the stress levels just take a nose dive as soon as we put the music on. Listening to the intricacies of music has given me a total peace of mind that was unexpected and a true gift.

Robert has a great following of talented and gifted piano and voice students of all ages (children, teens, college students and adults up into their 80’s). We have been to several of his student concerts. One of my favorite venues is the Cabaret in Germanos Restaurant in Little Italy. Great food, great music and so much fun to get to meet and listen to all of Robert’s students. Robert creates concerts all year round with his students either at his home or in around town. Such a great way to meet new and really interesting people that are different from your usual crowd of friends.

If you are considering taking piano or voice lessons, go for it and meet Robert for yourself. I can’t say enough how great he is as a teacher and now a friend.
