Piano lessons are a joy to teach! Let me inspire you. Within the first few lessons, you'll know terminology and piano basics such as rhythm and body placement, and as time goes on you'll be able to play classics, standards and more. I typically use method books combined with traditional repertoire. Currently I only teach from Alfred's Basic Piano Library (Adult & Child), or Piano Adventures.

I am about retired and decided to take piano lesson as a hobby last year. I knew nothing about playing piano and music theory. I was lucky to find Doniell as my piano teacher. She is very patient with me for not knowing anything and explains everything I need to know for that day’s lesson. She is also very flexible to work with me with my work and trip schedules. I have been with her for one year and take half hour lesson each week except when I was out of town, now I am able to play many songs and very happy with my good progress. I definitely recommended her to anyone who is interested in learning piano lessons. You will get satisfactions.

It was Auroras first lesson,she absolutely loved it
Tylonda
Our daughter is taking lessons with Doniell and after every lesson is thrilled to share her experiences. Doniell has been exceedingly accomodating of our schedule, making it absolutely pleasant to work with her. We are a homeschool family and she offered time outside of evening hours. We had several illnesses and issues with travel during the snow this past winter and she has always been understanding and patient with rescheduling. Our daughter is very enthusiastic about piano and many things in life, we are thankful we have Doniell to guide her as she continues to develop a passion for music.

Learn to play piano artistically from a degreed, experienced teacher.
I have successfully taught all ages. I have taught private lessons at my private studio, at an elementary school, at a conservatory, and in a group setting in the continuing education division of a university.
My lessons are taught in an environment of sensitivity and patience, praise and encouragement, while a professional atmosphere is maintained. Interesting pieces promote a student's dedication. Lessons include development of note reading, rhythm, theory, sight reading and musicianship. Technical development is included in lessons through performance of scales, chords, and arpeggios. Accuracy is taught with gentle correction.

About Brent

Jennifer K.
As a teacher of music (violin, voice, and choral) and a Classical singer, and colleague of Brent, I think the most important aspect of teaching is to take a personal approach with each student to see what "fits." Every student learns differently, and Brent recognizes that. He puts a tremendous amount of thought and creativity into the development of his students. Too many teachers today have a "cookie cutter" approach to teaching, and in my own experience, this turns students away from working on music later in their lives. Brent has the opposite approach, he is committed to developing the skills and love for Classical music simultaneously in the student, which has a more long-lasting affect on their schoolwork, concentration, character, and social life.
Guy A.
He is a very dedicated classic artist that is very knowledgeable in his profession. I strongly recommend that everyone work with him.
Cloret C.
Without reservation, recommend Brent as an enthusiastic and thoughtful instructor-mentor to those seeking to actually enjoy the experience of mastering music and piano in particular.
As an observer, I'm impressed with Brent's teaching method, and ability to rekindle in young adults the interest and enthusiasm they may have experienced in former times for playing music at the piano.
As a sensitive and proficient accompanist, Brent works patiently and conscientiously with the singer; putting one at ease, even performing the most challenging works of classical composers.

Do you love Beethoven? Debussey? Chopin? Do you wish you could play their songs?

Hi, my name is Jaki Nelson and I want to teach you your favorite songs while you learn the techniques and theory that live at the core of every bit of it. And as a result, you're going to learn these difficult concepts faster and easier than with traditional methods. I always start my piano classes with scales and fundamentals work, and then we switch gears to your song of choice. If your song of choice doesn't have sheet music at your level (or perhaps it's just really new!), I'm happy to make your sheet music for you. My goal is to make learning easier and more fun than ever before!

I can't wait to start working with you.

About Jaki

I have been teaching since 2013, and meanwhile my songs have been Top 10 on the Billboard Dance Charts twice, they have been streamed over 15 million times, and they've been featured in films and TV, including MTV's "Are You The One?" and Bella Thorne's 2020 #1 film "Infamous". Most recently, I was

Jaki brought live music into our home. It was a magical experience!

Covid had me searching for activities for my 3 children. Finding a piano was my first step. Finding Jaki was easy, because my dear friend referred her to me.

A truly Transformative experience. We dove right in, meeting w Jaki twice a week. My kids took a liking to Jaki straight away. Only about a year of training my children play music beautifully from Moonlight Sonata, Cello Suite No. 1 to Still by Dre.

Let’s talk professionalism and worth ethic. Jaki is an extraordinary music teacher. She supersedes our expectations every time, and never fails. She’s amazing w kids!

After only a couple lessons with Jaki I have already learned so much! She offers challenging and helpful exercises and encouraging feedback. She is clearly experienced and very knowledgeable in music. Highly recommend! :)

"Deborah is a diamond in the rough. She is a talented pianist and an excellent teacher. I spent countless hours during COVID searching for a piano instructor for my daughter, a beginner. Many veteran teachers prefer to teach intermediate-to-advanced students, and even fewer are willing to teach virtually. I'm so grateful to have found Deborah. She provides high-quality instruction to my daughter, and communicates with ease using technology. Deborah is engaging, professional, and her love of music is infectious."

I participated yearly in the CM piano evaluations organized by the Music Teachers' Association of California (MTAC) and was selected almost every year to perform at the Branch Honors Recitals. Since completing the Advanced level CM and moving to college, I have stopped taking piano lessons from Ms. Charlene. However, I still play the piano whenever I have the time. I highly recommend Ms. Charlene as a piano teacher."
