This was my son's first piano lesson so we didn't know what to expect. Kwame was great with my son. He was both patient and encouraging, knowledgeable and professional. My son is excited for his next lesson!

Technically she knows her stuff, interpersonally she is fabulous and as a beginning singer I am thrilled with these lessons.
Tyler M.
Love her teaching, it's so helpful.
Ashley
I am not one to take the time to write a review, but my experience must be shared and voiced. I met Professor Candid in early September. Hesitant to start, she immediately provided me with the safest space to be myself, to express my doubts, and to expand on the craft of music with her guidance. She exceeded my expectations time and time again, giving me endless tips, daily practice routines that not only incorporated vocals but mind, body and soul altogether. She did not hesitate to keep me in mind throughout the week, sending me clips of artists, helping me envision my own personal voice. She is always attentive, extremely patient, and has such grace when communicating with you about everything. I have been a music student for most of my life, have been with a handful of music teachers and she is 1 out of 2 teachers that have fully created a 100% non-judgmental environment for me to grow and learn. She always has a great listening ear and always keeps in mind what your personal goals and intentions are, guiding you with any small or huge dream you have your mind set for. If you’re looking for a professor that will not give up on you, will constantly be available to help you throughout the week, someone that shares her joy, teaches you not only her limitless knowledge on music but her wisdom that will forever leave you with such joy and peace every time you end your class session with her, then do not doubt to take your lessons with her! She is the best out here! Forever giving amazing quality lessons! You won’t regret it, I promise you!

Online Classical Piano Teacher

I have a special place in my heart for beginning piano students. I treat them more like a grandchild than as a strict classical instructor would. I have eliminated the pressure to learn wherever possible. From the first day, my students learn to read basic music. The lessons I create are customized based on my student's interests, strengths and ability to learn. Each child is unique. Whether they are gifted or special needs, each student gets my full attention. I get a great deal of joy from seeing the faces of my students light up when they accomplish a piece of music.

An intermediate level student holds a special challenge for me. Many times, they come to me having developed bad habits or missing important musical information that could make them a better pianist. I see my role as filling the gaps that they are missing and taking them further from there.

My students come and they stay with me - some for many years. If this is the type of experience you are looking for, then we ...

About Sharon

Many music teachers with whom you come in contact will try to hook you into their studio by telling you all about the great groups they have played with and how sought after they are for their various skills. Then try to make you feel that you are missing out on something special if you don’t sign

We love working with Sharon! We have 4 daughters and we have been so impressed with how easy the online process has been, how the girls have taken to not having the instructor there in person, and mostly how supportive, understanding, encouraging, and wonderful of an instructor Sharon is. We are so happy to have found her!! A+++ !!!

I approach private lessons with an open ear and an open mind, preferring to take cues from my students' own interests as a guide towards choosing repertoire and building a foundation in theory and technique that will best suit each individual student's needs and goals for their study with me. I teach all styles and genres; no one style is 'sacred' or above any other!

Mike adores teaching. He truly values his interactions with his students. He is patient and enthusiastic and his knowledge of music and vocal theory is astounding. I highly recommend him to anyone at any skill level looking to hone their skills.
Tom
The kids both loved taking lessons from Mike, as they could sing modern and show pieces, and they even did excerpts from Handel's Messiah. Highly recommend him.

I believe in preparing students to be well-rounded musicians, able to navigate any musical situation. I do this by incorporating often neglected elements of music into my teaching, including improvisation, music theory, music composition, music technology, and recording. I incorporate music from a wide variety of styles and time periods, with a focus on students' individual interests and personal goals. Above all, I aim to teach music in a way that is fun for the student and encourages them to explore, create, and discover music in new and exciting ways!

"Susan's instruction and mentorship has been transformational for my daughter's evolution as a classical pianist. The depth of articulation in her performance and the musicality in her playing she owes to Susan. Susan not only teaches with real dedication, but she also inspires her students to reach and keep attaining new heights in their piano performance. She demands commitment from her students, but is always encouraging and ensures her students gain confidence and a strong foundation in music education. Susan has extensive experience in teaching and her students do very well in piano competitions."
