Private Piano Teacher

I have been playing the piano for many years and my passion grows stronger each and every day! I started my classical training 15 years ago and have written hundreds of songs on piano and played in many ensembles. I graduated from Drexel University with a degree in recording arts and music production, which has given me the technical skills I need to write, record, and produce my own music. When my students master a piece, some of them like for me to record them playing it and then edit it to make it sound like a professional recording! It can serve as a great confidence booster and a fun keepsake to look back on when the song eventually falls out of their muscle memory. Whether you're a beginner interested in learning the fundamentals, a player looking to improve your chops, or just looking to learn how to play a specific song, I can help you define your goals and work towards them through good practice and technique! I also offer private lessons on songwriting for piano, if you ...

Great teacher! She was able to teach my daughter in 3 lessons what her band teacher couldn’t do in 6 months. My daughter walked away after her first lesson excited and couldn’t wait for her next lesson. You can tell Charis loves what she does.

Private Piano Teacher

Piano is the general instruction of the instrument. I have taught lessons for over 23 years where I have been traveling to the homes.
The students learn not only the general concepts but they also learn Theory which is the understanding of what lies underneath the music itself.
I have an easy going personality with the students learning how to play the piano, but I also want the students to work to their full potential.
The students learn not only the basics of the piano itself, but they also play fun songs, such as popular songs that they know.

About Teresa

I am a graduate of Northern IL University with a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education. I have 22 years of teaching experience where I have traveled to the homes. Students enjoy my passion that I have with the instrument. I started teaching in 1991 and have been teaching several students since

My daughters had their first piano lesson today with Terri. I can honestly say that I’ve never met anyone so patient and sweet natured and professional like Terri. The first time I spoke to her on the phone reflected her nature in person. Shes very knowledgeable with the piano music. She knows how to level herself with my 7 year old and specially with my know it all 5 year old. After the lessons she updated me with their progress and commented on my kids strengths and weaknesses. She just didn’t talk to me as her client but she talked to me like a friend. Her smile radiated through the music she teaches. We all loved her.

My son is a spitfire - Teresa has been patient with him while tapping his potential and challenging him!

Hi there! My name is Alexandria and I have been teaching for over 16 years! I specialize in working with young children as well as beginner and intermediate players of all ages!

I love introducing new music to aspiring students and discovering new ways we can accomplish difficult pieces. I make my lessons fun and exciting and customize them exactly to your needs. Lessons with me are light hearted and a good time! Giving music to the world is my passion that I want to share with you!

We love Miss Alex! We started weekly 30 minute in-person lessons and have recently moved to virtual. Lessons are going well with our 8 year old. Miss Alex is very sweet towards our daughter and communicates well with us parents. Our daughter so looks forward to her weekly lessons and we love that she is being challenged. Beyond the lessons, our daughter has music theory and regular practices. We believe it's the right amount of work to grow her musically.

In 35 years you are truly one of the best teachers I've come across. Thank you.

Annalise has a very impressive background in music and education, and it really reflects through her lessons with my daughter. She has instilled a lot of confidence in my daughter, to the point that she tried out for, and made, Advanced Choir at her school. I very highly recommend Annalise!

8 Essential Piano Chords Every Pianist Needs to Know

Once you've memorized the notes on the piano, it's time to put them together to create piano chords! Here, Augustine, FL piano teacher Heather L. reviews the eight chords to master first...    Except for most minimalist or avant-garde of styles, every musical genre is based on chords. From Mozart's piano concertos to the Beatles' hits, chords are foundational. Memorizing them is essential to songwriting, reading new music, and understanding the theory beyond the basics of piano.
