Learn fundamentals of how to play, yet allowing students to learn other styles of piano music they are interested in.
We play games and activities to help each student develop their piano potential. Currently we're playing water balloon games with rhythms, notes on the piano and staff. The students love how piano lessons can be incorporated outside.
Providing opportunities to play in the community, that produces more experience and confidence as a pianist.
Students complete tasks and musical concepts to help them succeed as a musician.
Spend time creating and composing new songs through games and activities, including Crazy Critter Composing. We make up songs about events that happen each day.

Ready to have a fun time on the piano? I am the teacher to have! Fresas attended the San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts where she was involved in the piano, choral, and theater departments. She participated in numerous competitions including the MTNA Young Artist Performance Competition. In college, she was involved with the University Choir and Gospel Choir where she was a featured soloist. She received her simultaneous Bachelor’s degrees in Business Administration and Music from UC Berkeley, with an emphasis on piano performance. She also obtained an Executive Master of Business Administration from Colorado Technical University.

She also composes her own music and is always eager to share that music with other music lovers. She continues to perform around San Diego County in various events.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are informal and engaging. I do not follow a strict schedule and leave room for creativity and spontaneity. I follow the Royal Conservatory Music Development Program curriculum, a national standard and pioneer in music education, and I encourage my students each year to take the exams for musicianship and theory for the appropriate grade level. I incorporate my classical piano training in my lessons, and my interests span from jazz piano, gospel, to contemporary music. My teaching philosophy entails the acknowledgment that each piano student is different and that is why I'm a firm believer in having a personalized yet structured lesson, so that it promotes creativity while strengthening the technical aspect of each student. My teaching style consists of intense training in virtuosic technique while incorporating musicality and expression into the music. My method of teaching is one that is driven with motivation, dedication, consistency, and persistence. I am very enthusiastic about sharing my knowledge of music to anyone who is interested in making music a fun and wonderful learning experience.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a mid-sized music room, with an upright piano, a digital keyboard, guitar, recording equipment, and a computer in the studio.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to have a piano/keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, jazz, gospel, pop, musical theater genres for piano and voice. Specializes in beginning and intermediate students but teaches all levels for piano and voice. Music theory and songwriting are also offered.

Piano is a wonderful instrument that anyone can learn at any age. From the first lesson I will have the student playing on the piano. I try to tailor the lessons for each student. We will move at your pace.

About Tammye
I am a 2008 graduate of the University of North Texas with a Bachelor of Arts in Music degree. While at North Texas I taught trumpet lessons in the Denton area. I have also taught piano, clarinet, and saxophone as well as all the other brass instruments. I have performed with the UNT Concert Band, the UNT Brass Band, the UNT Nine O'Clock Lab Band, the Collin County Jazz Band, and the San Jose Metropolitan Band.

Currently, I teach clarinet, saxophone, trumpet and piano in the DFW area. I also play trumpet in the both the Frisco Community Band and the Frisco Community Brass Ensemble.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back teacher who gets you playing from the first day.

*** Studio Equipment ***
All students are required to purchase the Musician's Practice Planner, which you can find at any music store. You will also need to g
et any books that we play through (but I'll give you time to get them, so don't worry.) Any books that we use will be easy to find and won't cost a whole lot of money.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will always bring my instrument with me when I attend a lesson, so I expect my students to do the same when they come to my studio. Also, make sure you have any books and music that we will be playing out of. I always have a copy of anything that we are playing, so I expect the student to have a copy as well.

Tammye has been my daughters piano teacher going on five years now. She is laid back and my daughter has always enjoyed playing the piano. She has never dreaded lesson or asked to not play. I've heard of some kids crying after lessons and this has never ever been the case with Tamye. My daughter started out loving lessons with Tamye and still does... she is in middle school now. She has never felt pressured. She has always come away from the lessons having learned something new and now plays beautifully. This year my five year old boy has started lessons with Ms. Tammye and he also is enjoying them. Tamye has been the perfect teacher for our family. We took a summer break to try out a local music school (same price and we had to drive there) and it didn't compare to the quality we get with Ms. Tammye. As long as our kids are playing piano they'll be having Ms. Tammye as their teacher.

This "teacher" doesn't know anything about music, let alone playing the trumpet, or any instrument. Complete HACK with zero skills who shouldn't even be charging $15 an hour!!! Also, she was extremely rude in all correspondence with me. I'm beyond thankful that I didn't have to smell her likely putrid, unwashed, unkempt stench through the webcam or in person. Stay FAR away.

I offer contemporary music instruction for piano, and focus on technique, theory, sight reading, ear training, and improvisation.

About Jeffrey
"Music is the catalyst that helps to enhance the quality of life.We as musicians and educators MUST pass it on."

I am a 27 year practicing professional musician, songwriter, arranger, and music educator. Music is my passion. I currently teach guitar, piano, and organ, and serve as minister of music and staff musician for two Chicago area church congregations. I have played guitar and keyboards for local bands, and am well versed with a variety of musical styles.

*** Lesson Details ***
I specifically tailor my lessons for each student....I do not use a "cookie cutter" lesson style. To achieve the best lesson approach for the most positive student outcome, I conduct a student assessment during the first lesson (first lessons are free for a limited time) to determine student skills, goals, and objectives. After the assessment, I
structure a comprehensive, contemporary lesson plan that includes fundamentals, technique, theory, and songs relative to the lesson in a fun and productive manner that engages the student and promotes his/her creativity.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Acoustic piano (A 440), Yamaha Digital Piano, Hammond X-C3 organ, 6 string acoustic guitar, 6 string classical guitar

*** Travel Equipment ***
My expectation would be that all students I visit in home would have an acoustic piano properly tuned, or a digital piano or keyboard with 88 weighted keys. Guitar students should have a 6 string, acoustic or electric guitar (with an amplifier).

I've been teaching piano for 3 years and my students have gone on to learn the classics as well as great pop songs. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to learn one of your favorite songs and as time goes on you'll be able to master more of the classics. I specialize in contemporary music but am flexible to work with what you're passionate about learning most. I love working with students of all ages and I can't wait to meet you!

About Erica
I'm a professional singer, songwriter, and recording artist originally from Tanzania in East Africa. I love empowering students to discover the joy of music in every lesson.

I've studied music theory, voice, and piano at the college level, and I'm also a self taught guitar player.

For voice students, your vocal skills are like a muscle. I help you improve your vocal technique a little bit each week while you're growing your confidence and self expression as a singer.

For piano, I began learning piano as an adult (5 years ago) and I understand the challenge of learning the instrument from scratch. I can teach students to read music and play contemporary songs of your choice.

As a singer and songwriter, I've worked with famous artists in East Africa. You can learn more about my music at http://EricaLulakwa.com. I love to mentor st
udents who want to become powerful songwriters and get into performing and recording.

I look forward to working with you to grow into a better musician!

My experience teaching piano spans nine years and I have helped my students develop their performance and interpretation skills to succeed in both examinations and their academic pursuits.
In addition, my students have learned to play their favorite songs, sing and play or improvise for special occasions or recreation. In our first lesson, we'll discuss your private goals and develop a plan for their realization. Within the first few weeks, we'll work on specific skills and techniques in order to achieve your goal. From the beginning, you will have a chance to practice your skills and work on music that inspires you on a grand piano. If desired, you'll have an opportunity to play your music at an annual recital or other performance opportunities.

My selection of materials depends on your skill level and personal goals. For beginners, I will often use Faber Piano Adventures, Alfred Piano, and the RCM Piano series. The RCM Piano series also caters to intermediate and advanced ...

I have been taking the piano lessons with Ania for a couple of lessons. She helped me realize my life-long dream of playing classical piano music. She is a very talented and astounding instructor with a super solid theoretical background. During the lesson with her, the music goes way beyond just playing the right note with correct tempo. She shows me those exquisite parts hidden behind the sheet music. The piano music starts to become dynamic, alive and captivating. I highly recommend her to anyone.

Over the past twenty-seven years, I have had the privilege of teaching people of all ages and abilities to play the piano. I have been a professional piano accompanist the same amount of time, playing with a wide variety of groups and soloists, learning from each experience. I pass on this knowledge to my students. I enjoy every person I teach, and make sure to tailor my teaching to their personal learning style.

About Susanne
At the age of 12, I discovered what an amazing and versatile instrument the piano can be, and have been studying it, as well as eventually teaching others about its possibilities, ever since. I have had the privilege of playing for a variety or groups and soloists, as lead pianist for many musicals with many different theater groups, playing worship music for my church, accompanying choirs from professional through high school groups, going to various music festivals, playing with orchestras and in professional bands and much, much more! I want to share this wealth of knowledge and experience with my students, and help them succeed in whatever type of music they most enjoy playing.

I "study" each student and adjust my teaching style to fit their learning style. I make sure my students know the basics of note reading, rhythm and theo
ry, and then expand the instruction to include whatever most inspires them; classics, Christian, jazz, improvisation, playing by chord or anything else. I set a very specific practice plan for each student every week, so that - with regular and precise practice at home - each student can achieve great results.
