Private Piano Teacher

In piano, we will begin with simple music designed to build strength and dexterity in your hands. We will begin learning to read music notes together, so don't worry if you never have before! However, I do recommend that young children are able to identify the alphabet and numbers 1-10 prior to starting piano. Reading is a plus!

In lessons, I use the Piano Adventures series, starting at the primer level with very young students. I will typically use the Lesson, Performance, Technique & Artistry, & Theory books available at each level to give every student the most comprehensive music education while building their piano playing ability. These four books are commonly sold as a package on amazon.com for a discounted rate.

In addition, I love to work with each student to meet his or her own personal goals. I am always happy to provide additional music from outside these core books! Some examples of things my students have requested over the years include Disney songs, video

Kristin does a beautiful job teaching piano and singing to my daughters. The two go hand in hand and she does a great job combining both. On a personal note, she has a beautiful, generous heart and gives my girls little prizes when they do very well.
Erin
Kristin is wonderful! My daughter loves singing with her and looks forward to every lesson! Kristin really cares about how her students are doing and gets to know them and their interests outside of their lessons. We were blown away that she remembered Isabel's birthday after only meeting with us a few times!
Isabel sings all the time. She tells me, mommy I have to practice so I can be famous like Ms Kristin! We are so lucky to have found her!

Did not care enough to plan ahead or get to know my granddaughter enough to individualize her weekly lessons. Very apparent that she failed to prepare ahead of time. Often late and cancelled class several times.

I am trained in Russian technique using relaxation movements that prevent painful cramps in wrist and forearm. I have been teaching primarily children from age 4 in music schools and homes since 1987. I like to motivate them by letting them choose their favorites, like songs from Disney movies or some other popular songs. I am very patient and encouraging. I am happy when I see love for music growing in hearts of students.

About Katarina

I attended six years at State Conservatory and graduated with Magister degree from Comenius University in former Czechoslovakia. I performed during my college years with a chamber vocal-instrumental ensemble. I started teaching piano and music theory in 1987 at a music school and later I was giving

Katarina has been a fantastic teacher, helping me get to learn the basics of piano while teaching me how to play with a relaxed technique to preserve my hands and forearms -- I work on a computer all day so I will sometimes get cramped hands.
Jessica
Katarina is very knowledgeable about piano and theory, having studied and taught for many years. She uses the Russian technique and teaches excellent technical skill. She is patient and fair, and above all, a wonderful teacher!!
Regina
I have wanted to take piano lessons all my life but never had the time. Katarina has been very patient and caring with me. She’s an excellent teacher for me because she takes time, fully explains things, and has confidence in me that helps me to go further. I am so glad I have Katarina as my teacher. Thank you!

Molly is an amazing teacher, overflowing with enthusiasm and encouragement. I'm an amateur singer, and just wanted to take lessons to improve my singing a little bit so I could be better at musical improv. She helped reconnect me with my love of singing, and now I want more.

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 .

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.
Patricia C.
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.

How to Start Your Own Piano Studio: a Guide for Teachers

As an instructor, you will learn how to better communicate ideas and information to others.   The beauty of education is that it’s a two-way street. If there is compatibility, both  the teacher and the student benefit from the exchange. Teaching also requires  adaptation and creativity because no two students are alike.
