Are you a beginner piano player interested in learning how to play your favorite songs? Do you like how the piano sounds and want to learn what each note is or how to take control of the instrument? Are you a singer looking to grow with your vocal exercises and learn how to play scales?

I learned how to play piano 4 years ago when I started teaching music lesson. When I first started I was teaching voice, so I had to learn scales and chords to be able to warm up and accompany the students I was working with. Pretty soon I was playing piano with my students for their recitals, and quickly I learned how to utilize the piano either for performance or practice!

Whether you are planning on leading with it, using it as accompaniment to someone else/yourself, or just want to learn for fun as a hobby, I can teach you all you need to know for your beginner piano studies! If you have any questions, please message me!

About Mikala

Want to learn how to play or sing your favorite song? Are you interested in learning how to write your own songs? Since the start of my teaching career 4 years ago, my lessons have expanded to include guitar, ukulele, bass, piano, drums, singing, and even songwriting! I'm eager to help you find

Mikala was an absolute treat to work with. I was apprehensive about singing to my wife at our wedding reception. So I hit up take lessons and connected in under 30 minutes.

Lessons were given at her studio in her home, and over the course of 8 weeks we transformed my vocals from uncertainty, to the confidence I needed to nail my solo performance.

10/10 would recommend to anyone seeking to improve their vocals. Just make sure you do the homework she sends you with (vocal warm ups, breathing camps, and daily practice) and you'll see results in a little as the first visit.

Her personality and encouragement were absolutely infectious and really lent to an overall positive experience.

Really great experience for our daughter working with Mikala.

Mikala was patient and encouraging, helped me learn techniques as well as have fun. A great experience!

Sarah was extremely helpful with Piano and Flute lesson .
She is a very talented teacher.
Jonathan
Sarah is an excellent flute instructor! Learning online during COVID has been a great experience. Sarah has found ways to make it easy - such scanning her notes to me and sending me recordings after the class. Her lessons are exciting, as I have been working on music I enjoy in addition to music Sarah recommended. I definitely recommend her for online lessons. I look forward to when we can return in person too.

I teach beginning students to read music and play by ear.

About Victor

I believe that any student will practice more if he or she likes the music they are playing. Periodically I will ask a student to give me a name of a piece of music that they would like to learn how to play. I notate it for them, often simplifying the rhythm and chords in Finale NotePad and give it

Basic piano technique, music theory, and beginner songs taught in a low stakes, low pressure environment. Perfect for young kids and those brand new to piano. Will use the Bastien piano books (distributed via pdf at not additional cost) and some solo songs, but open to continuing in a book you already own. I believe that encouragement is the best tool!

My 11 yr old daughter has absolutely loved working with Monica and has shown tremendous improvement over the last few months. If you aren't sure what teacher to choose, give her a try. I think you'll like her too!
Albert F.
Monica has been a wonderful teacher. I appreciate that the experience has been very collaborative. She will teach a technique and ask if it feels right or sounds right to you and to test it out for a week and if that's not working for you well try a different approach, So it's more trial and error than there is one way to sing. And I think having some control and agency over your vocal journey leads to a more confident and positive experience. Lessons with Monica have been very open and fun. I feel like I have progressed at a faster rate in the past 3 months working with her than the past 5 years I have been trying to improve my voice. And I am very curious and excited about how much further I'll grow in the future with Monica's assistance.

Monica is wonderful!

I teach piano both as a starting to other instruments and as a goal in and of itself. My method is to teach as much as I can in the learning style of the student. I have taught from every available piano method book out there. The goal is not to get through each book as quick as we can. The goal is to become a student who enjoys making music. The student and I work as much as we can during the lesson time on the understanding of the songs, method, style, and theory of music. Therefore, if a someone does not have much time for practice during a week, as happens for time to time, they will still learn and progress.

About Shae

I am an music instructor with 30 years of experience. I have a Bachelor's degree in Sacred Music with a major in Voice. I have been playing piano for 38 years with having been an accompanist for choirs and soloists and a pianist at weddings and churches. I am a believer that anyone can learn pia

My 2 girls started with Shae when they were 5 years old and both enjoyed their lessons. Shae is patience and good with kids. Even though we don't have the best schedule, the girls liked her so much I couldn't switch to a different teacher even though it could have saved me a few dollars too.
Melissa K.
Shae is a great teacher, she is very patient, and my son enjoys his lessons. We have been with Shae for several years, and it has been fun watching my son's ability grow during that time.

"Jesus has been really helpful in improving my technique and introducing me to challenging pieces. I have been playing piano for about 14 years and took a long break from working on my music. At first, I was skeptical about taking lessons again, but I decided to start roughly two months ago. Since starting lessons with Jesus, I'm playing pieces that I would have never chosen for myself on my own and tackling them even faster than I thought I could. Aside from learning new, advanced pieces, he is really helping me with my technique as a performer. Jesus fosters a welcoming environment and I genuinely look forward to my lesson each week. If you're an older student like me interested in piano, I highly recommend Jesus!"

How to Write Your Own Music: A Beginner’s Guide to Piano Composition 

After hearing a new piece of music, listeners often ask, “How’d you come up with that?”  However, this question often implies, “Why did you write that?”  The "why" is not answered easily. Creativity comes from a mysterious place.  Neuroscientists have shown that creative thinkers tend to be “right-brained”  processors (and synthesizers) of information. However, the impetus to compose includes a myriad of both internal and external factors, and often, these factors are elu …

6 New Ideas for Piano Warm-Ups

We all know the importance of warming up - but do you actually commit to a proper warm-up every time you sit down to play the piano?  If you're in a rush, it's easy to forget it.  However, an effective warm-up is essential for avoiding injuries, such as tendonitis, and can also help increase the dexterity of your fingers and hands, allowing you to reach certain tough chords.
