The focus of my piano teaching is the classical style, but the fundamentals we learn as classical pianists are necessary for any type of music! Whether you're just starting out, looking to brush up on your skills, or learning more advanced repertoire, I am happy to adjust lessons to YOUR goals! We can also incorporate music theory and history to broaden your musical understanding.

I am a professional musician residing in New Orleans. I have a bachelor's and master's degree in music and have been studying and playing the piano since the age of 8! I currently teach and provide piano accompaniment with the music department at Tulane University.

Please contact me to discuss method books, repertoire, etc. I am happy to teach online, in person at Tulane University, or at your location. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about lessons, scheduling or anything else!

Phillip was an excellent oboe teacher for our middle school daughter. He determined what was causing problems with her instrument and was very focused on helping her with her band assignments.

Phillip has an easy-going and pleasant manner and will be a good match for a wide range of students.

First instructor I've ever had and I've got to say Nate is everything I was hoping for. Makes learning a fun and engaging experience and is very patient. I have no doubt I wouldn't be as far as I am today had I not decided to have him in my instructor. Highly recommended.

Piano lessons are strictly for beginners or for students who have little to no training. The first few lessons are dedicated to learning the proper playing technique and practicing several exercises to increase the hand’s coordination, flexibility, and mobility. Once the proper technique has been established we move on to Suzuki method and a series of Etudes catered to the student’s learning needs.

About Alethia

Growing up I was raised in a home full of music. My father, a graduate of the Conservatorio Nacional Superior de Musica (National conservatory of Superior Music) played piano day and night and from there my love for music blossomed. My first experience with music was at the age of 8 when I began to

She is a great instructor! My 14 yr old daughter is a beginner and she has been wonderful with her. She is professional, warm, and always helpful. I don't know much about the violin, but I never have to remind my daughter to practice the music that she is given.
Emmerson (Emme) N.
Alethia is great. She is working with my 7 yr. old daughter as a beginner in violin. She teaches in a way that is fun, appropriate, and respectful. My daughter has already learned so much and looks forward to her lessons with Alethia each week.

Summer is an amazing piano teacher. Her positive, encouraging and professional demeanor is like no other. She teaches 3 of my children piano:ages 14, 10, & 8 & she caters to each of their individual personalities, abilities and learning styles. I am amazed at how far each of them have come in just a year. It is so nice to see each of them sit down at the piano and just relax and have fun playing a tune. She has instilled a confidence in them that carries over into every aspect of their life. We are so grateful that the kids have fallen in love with piano, but I completely attribute that love to Summer’s style of teaching. Having a teacher that is so positive and encouraging is such a blessing.

My daughter is so happy with her lessons from Summer. She does a great job individualizing the curriculum, and even making the more monotonous parts engaging. Highly recommend.
Carolyn
I have always wanted to learn to play the piano. At the age of 50 I decided it was a perfect time! I picked Summer and it was the best choice I ever made!! She is such a great , patient teacher. She explains every thing so thoroughly that I had no problems understanding her! I caught on and achieved my goal of playing my favorite song, "Claire De lune" and more, I may not sound like a concert pianist, but I am proud of my accomplishment. It never would have happened with out such a fabulous teacher!

I've been taking online lessons with Wei for the past couple of months, and I quite enjoy them. As an adult piano player, I don’t have specific goals. I just play for fun most of the time. Wei, nevertheless, made specific teaching plans for me. He learns my strength and weaknesses, and chooses pieces that are both enjoyable to play and technically challenging for me, so that I’m able to tackle my weaknesses. His expertise helps me improve in many ways, like piano techniques and overall understanding of music. After a few lessons with him, I gained confidence in playing. I’m able to improve my performance of the pieces I love. Besides, Wei is an easy-going person. It’s fun to work with him. I strongly recommend his lessons if you are looking for a teacher with patience, expertise and passion for music.

"My son started taking lessons with Ms. H. at the age of 8. He had no prior piano experience, but showed a lot of interest in wanting to learn about it. He is doing absolutely amazing and has been a part of a piano festival and recitals. Ms. H. has been wonderful. She is patient, fun, and challenges him when she knows he can do better. She makes the whole experience enjoyable. He's very comfortable with her and enjoys his time at the lessons. He cannot wait to play what he just learned as soon as we return home from the lessons. He has learned so much in a short period of time, and he continues to flourish. I highly recommend Ms. H. for piano lessons at any age. She is a fabulous teacher!"
