I love teaching piano to beginners! My goal is to nurture well-rounded young musicians, and I incorporate percussion and singing into my piano lessons, making for a very fun musical experience. I focus on building essential skills like reading sheet music, playing by ear, playing with accurate rhythm, reading chord symbols, and even composing original songs!

My approach is unique and many of my students go on to be multi-instrumentalists and song writers. I also offer split lessons between piano and drums.

Please message me and let me know what kind of goals you have for your child!

About Michael

Hello! My name is Mike and I'd love to help you learn how to play the drums! I'm a lifelong music lover and I started playing the drum set at age 12. I love helping my students learn the drum beats and fills from their favorite songs. I center my teaching around fostering a natural ease and love fo

Mike is one of 4 drum teachers to enter my son Larry’s life, and absolutely the best one. Larry has shown more improvement in the last 6 months with Mike than in the last 4 years combined with all of his previous teachers.

As my son has a disability, it is often hard to find a teacher that can not only help him to find enjoyment and enthusiasm, but treat him like the serious musician he is. The best part of his teaching… Larry doesn’t even realize he’s learning. To him, they just jam.

I’ve seen my son grow not just as a drummer, but as a musician and student since Mr. Mike became his instructor. Now, he can listen better, play better, and have more fun on his instrument. I am very grateful for Mr. Mike’s patience, compassion, and skill set as a drum instructor and for the confidence he brought to my son.
Citlally
Has challenged me to improve my technique and has taught me how to play more advanced beats.
Julie
It’s hard to express how much Mike’s drumming lessons have made a difference in our son’s life. Mike is a visionary teacher who cares about and connects with his students.

I’m a patient teacher with many experiences in teaching music theory and piano. I have a master’s degree in music theory and I love to teach. Especially if you are preparing for a music theory exam, I’d love to help. In fact, many students who came to me had failed music theory exams and after they took lessons with me, they were able to pass the exams. I am specialized in ABRSM, PMTA, Just The Facts, and Keyboard Gymnastics and I can help you preparing for any types music theory diagnostic exams. I’d love to see you succeed!

Stefani
Both of my children had their very first piano lessons under the tutelage of Hannah, and Vango Piano Method Book One was one of the first books from which they learned to read music. This book was easy for them to follow and they were never frustrated with the learning process. They always looked forward to their music lessons and even fought over who got to go first! I highly recommend Hannah and her piano method books for any beginner.
Erica
I have two children who have been taken piano lessons with Ms. Vango. She is a very experienced pianist and teacher and is very knowledgeable about piano methods that both appeal to children and also are effective for learning important piano skills in an order that makes sense. My second oldest uses Vango Piano Method Book One and enjoys it. This is a good introduction to piano book for parents who would like to sit with their child and work on a few pages at a time or even for other piano teachers starting their own new beginner students.
Jorn V.
We love Ms. Vango! My daughter has fun and is engaged, and at the same time she is challenged. It is the perfect balance. She looks forward to lessons and performances. Ms. Vango helped my daughter develop an appreciation for music, a good ear and wonderful piano skills.

"I always wanted to learn how to play the guitar so in between a tour with the United States Air Force I heard about an opportunity to learn from Charley and I pursued it. I literally just picked up the guitar and didn't know the chords very well so I didn't know what to expect. When I met Charley, I realized that these next would of weeks were going to be awesome! He was very personable and flexible with my schedule, he was always willing to help and he had patients, which was very important to keeping my drive to play guitar. On top of having a great character, he was an amazing guitar player and extremely musically talented! I recommend his expertise one-hundred percent for all levels, it has given me a great base to playing the guitar. Hats off to his patients with me!! Highly recommend him!!!"
