I was impressed with my daughter's first lesson! Justin was very personable with her and helped her get over her nervousness. He was also very knowledgeable and evaluated her range and which way would be best to teach her. My daughter loved it, and is looking forward to learning more!

Saint Louis, MO

I have been teaching for more then 20 years and my main goal is to develop deep love and appreciation for music.

About Daniela
Hi ! My name is Daniela and I can't wait to meet you!
I have been teaching piano and theory since 1994 and have loved helping my students discover the beautiful world of music. Seeing my students grow into well rounded and educated people that love art, are able to recognize different styles of music, express their feelings and emotions on this wonderful instrument makes me really happy. My students range from people who simply want to learn how to play proficiently as a hobby to students who are considering making music their future career.
I strongly believe that a chance to go on a big stage and play on a great Steinway piano in front of people, makes a big difference in children's lives: teaches them self control, gives them great sense of accomplishment and satisfaction. Taking part in festivals and piano competitions helps
with building high self esteem even more.
I look forward to helping you and your children to reach your goals!

Daniela is great. As an adult learner, I need flexibility of scheduling sometimes and of course, a lot of patience. Daniela always makes our sessions fun even when I am struggling through a piece. She is a great teacher and musician. I really enjoy our lessons and she has really helped me see progress.

After my first lesson with Daniela I knew she was the perfect instructor. She was very patient but didn't let you slide when you messed something up. That means a lot as an adult learning to play. If you are looking for an instructor, look no further than Daniela.

I teach piano because I am passionate about music! Music is fun, and I want to share the possibility of music being an integral part of one's life with people of all ages and abilities. If playing the piano wasn't life-giving and fun, I would not do it.

About Angela
Music has been a constant throughout my life. As a young child, I remember my mother singing or playing the piano. I knew, even as a youngster, that whatever was making her feel so happy and peaceful was something I wanted. I started lessons at age nine, and have been playing the piano or organ since then. I started teaching in 2000. Since then, it has become my passion. As my children have grown and married, being a grandmother has become another passion!

I count myself so very lucky to have this career that I am passionate about. My goal is to help others see if music can be a source of joy for them.

I am currently pursuing a Bachelor's Degree in Music and Piano Performance at The Juilliard School studying with legendary pedagogue and Chair of Piano Dr. Veda Kaplinsky. I've traveled the musical world and studied with several of the world's most sought after pianists, including Sergei Babayan, mentor of international piano star Daniil Trifonov, as one of eight students worldwide accepted to his final Babayan International Piano Academy. I've performed with the Seattle Symphony amongst other concerts with orchestras in Europe, and perform regularly as a soloist in the greater NYC area and Seattle at venues including Carnegie Hall. Since beginning my teaching career, I've looked forward to sharing my knowledge with young students in order to nurture their artistic talents and unique musical sense. Students will be able to perceive piano not only as a skill and genuinely enjoyable activity, but also as the most sincere and effective form of emotional expression and as a friend with ...

About Max
Most recently, I was selected as one of eight pianists worldwide across all age divisions to attend The Verbier Festival's Artist Training Program in Switzerland, summer of 2018. I was the only American pianist to receive the honor this year.

I am currently a second-year undergraduate student at The Juilliard School in New York City, where I study with the Susan W. Rose Chair of Piano Department, Dr. Yoheved Kaplinsky and Hung-Kuan Chen; my history with the institution dates back to Juilliard Pre-College, where I graduated as a Juilliard Scholarship recipient. In addition to my formal musical education in classical piano, I'm also a graduate of the Lakeside School in Seattle, a highly selective, college preparatory school offering a rigorous academic program; notable alumni include Bill Gates, Paul Allen and the McCaw brothers. I am w
ell-versed and fluent in both English and Mandarin Chinese.

I am well accustomed to working with young children, adolescents and teenagers along with the elderly in retirement homes, and hope to nurture and instill in each of my students a genuine, individualized passion for music, along with imparting to each student all the knowledge I've attained over 15 years of musical experience off and on stage, playing at the world's most acclaimed venues and studying with some of the world's most sought after pedagogues. Furthermore, my goal is to accelerate the learning curve and to bestow all I know as quickly as possible, not wasting time on useless irrelevancies. I've taught many years privately in the greater Seattle area, as a private teacher at the Aspen Music Festival and as a private teacher serving the NYC area since 2015. My students have won regional and international competitions for young people, and have performed at prestigious venues such as Benaroya Hall, Alice Tully @ Lincoln Center, the Kauffman Center, Foundation LV in Paris, and Carnegie Hall.

Max is an amazing instructor and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to seriously learn and enjoy the piano. Before I began my lessons with Max, I was stuck on the same piece for two months, there was very little progress being made. I had a total of two lessons with Max and now I'm able to comfortably play the piece from memory. I cannot stress enough how beneficial he was in my huge progress jump. I look forward to every lesson knowing I'm going to learn and be exposed to something new every time. I've always wanted to learn how to play the piano, but I thought I was too old now to even try. I'm so thankful that I took the leap anyway and started this amazing journey of learning the piano and I couldn't of asked for a better guide than Max on this journey.

He is a very promising Juilliard student.
His teaching reflects being educated by the world’s most sought after classical piano mentors.
What he teaches is unorthodox and complex in nature, but he teaches and demonstrates effectively in an easily comprehensive manner.
I believe that learning his skills will have a tremendous impact on my child’s future in both music and life.
I strongly recommend him to anyone who cannot be satisfied with other instructors.
PS: He works well to encourage and nurture youth, as my sons are 6 and 9 years old.

Brooklyn, NY

View Full Profile

Whether you want to learn today's popular music, go back to classic songs of the past, or want to write your own music, I have the tools for you! I have many years of experience teaching both kids and adults, and my versatile professional experience means I can offer instruction in a wide range of musical styles. For traditional method book learning, I'm well-versed in both the Alfred piano method, as well as Faber & Faber, while drawing from my own upbringing as a Suzuki student. I also make sure each student learns music theory and ear training techniques in order to internalize the music on a deeper level.

About Tyler
I'm a multi-instrumentalist, teacher, composer, arranger, freshly transplanted to Brooklyn after seven great years in Boston, Massachusetts. My professional experience on saxophone, keyboards, clarinet, flute, and bass in many different musical styles has offered me a wide-ranging palate to teach from. For the past five years, I've worked for multiple organizations and agencies as a private lessons instructor, averaging 15-20 students at any given time and maxing out at over 30! My approach to lessons is laid back, yet goal-oriented. My main goals are to equip my students musical and instrumental fundamentals, help them discover their particular passions within music and work towards related goals, and to foster an environment rooted in fun and mutual respect.

My daughter enjoyed learning clarinet with Tyler. As another reviewer has noted, Tyler is a gentle and patient teacher. My daughter could be difficult during lessons and often got distracted, and Tyler was great at steering her back on track and engaging her through new music and exercises.

Tyler was the piano teacher for our two daughters for almost 5 years. They were piano beginners aged 4 and 6 when we started. My daughters are more on the shy side, and Tyler ended up being the perfect teacher for them. He is gentle and patient but at the same time got them excited about learning the instrument and playing music of different genres. My daughters enjoyed the lessons very much and they were sad to see Tyler leave for New York. I can highly recommend Tyler as a teacher especially for shy beginners like my daughters were.

I focus on differentiation in my lessons. This means that I teach in the way that YOU need to be taught. That way the student can progress as efficiently as possible. Students will learn basic theory, piano fundamentals, work songs at their level and for school and play some fun music of their choosing.

About Killion
Hi! My goal for students us to help them learn as much as possible, as efficiently as possible, with as much FUN as possible. If my initial way of teaching doesn't work for you, I'll work work work until I find a method your comfortable with.

I have a lot of experience in music education and performance. My specialties are Voice, Trumpet, Piano and French Horn. I love classical music, jazz, gospel, pop, classic rock, musical theater and just about everything in between. And I'll work with you on whatever you'd like!

All of my students to learn basic music theory as well as the instrument they are working on. This is a very important building block that will make all the difference.

Ms. Killion was my daughter’s piano teacher for a little around a year. My daughter is very shy and reserved around people that she doesn’t know. Ms. Killion was able to help her come out of her shell and gain confidence in playing the piano. She was very flexible with her schedule and took the time to give my daughter constructive feedback. We truly miss having Ms. Killion as our instructor!

I was Killion's manager for several years at her previous teaching location in St. Charles, MO. It left a devastating hole in my student count when she left, as she brought in more business than any of my other teachers! She is a fantastic educator who takes on a range of students in terms of age, ability, and instrumentation. Children respond especially well to her methods, but she is also able to garner significant results from adults. Her lessons are flexible, fitting the needs of various learning styles. What I appreciated most about her technique was her patience and her emotional investment in her students. When she left my program, her students brought her gifts and handmade cards that were a true testament to her level of compassion and the excitement she inspires! I would recommend her to anyone looking to develop their skills. Thank you Killion for all that you do!
