I have been going to lessons with Carolyn for over a year now and I can say from experience she is one of the best! You can tell she is incredibly passionate about what she does. I have had previous teachers with music and so far Carolyn is my favorite I've had! It's a pleasure to work with her and I have learned and improved a lot in the little time I've seen her. Overall very good instructor, I highly recommend her as a teacher.

Ginni A. Chandler, AZ

For 20 years Ginni has been helping students of all ages to play the piano. Her youngest student was 3 and her oldest (so far) was 72! You really can learn to play at any age! All you need is desire, some time to play and a keyboard or piano.

What students achieve from their lessons depends upon their goals. Some students play to relax at the end of a long day. Others want to play some songs that they love. Students may have always wanted to play piano and have decided that now is the time. Some are developing their gifts while others just think that it's fun!

Good technique is essential in playing the piano. Ginni teaches her piano students how to use their bodies when they play.This helps them to move their fingers across the piano with ease.

Ginni teaches students how to make sense of what is on the page. Whether from a beginning student or an advanced student Ginni answers their questions and guides them ( and if she doesn't know the answer they might look it up together ...

About Nanette

I started studying piano and singing from a very young age. I used to make my friends come over and watch me perform (karaoke style--before karaoke was big) when i was in the 4th grade. My greatest love is music, performing music, and sharing it with others. As a singer i have studied all types of music, but my favorite- and what i excel at- is opera. I have taken private voice and piano lessons constantly since the age of 5, and have studied opera performance and music theory in college. I perform locally around the community as a singer, direct the church choir, and occasionally accompany soloists on the piano. I have taught private lessons in voice and piano for 5 years and i greatly enjoy the one on one experience of teaching private lessons. *** Lesson Details *** I

Amy is awesome! My son just turned 5 and his attention span is very short, but Amy is able to keep him on track. She is very patient and always go over the material with me, so that I understand it and I am able to help my son practice at home. I really appreciate her teaching style.

Amy is Awesome :o)

It would be very difficult to sum up all reasons why Amy is a wonderful music teacher. Amy provides a positive and judgment-free zone for her music lessons. She is both encouraging and inspirational. When my daughter becomes frustrated with a new note or technique, Amy simply reminds her that she is more than capable and all she needs is practice. I appreciate the time and thought Amy puts into making music selections that will both challenge my daughter’s playing abilities while retaining her attention.

Kenny T. Phoenix, AZ

I have taught piano for 50 years, including approximately 700 students, many which are professional musicians today. My teaching style is casual yet structured. My youngest student is 3 years old..my oldest is 82 years old. Children are taught systematic...adults are taught according to their goals. I evaluate each student, setting goals and helping them accomplish them. I offer two recitals with students each year.

About Kenny

I have been teaching professionally since 1965 I am also a professional (full time) jazz and gospel pianist. I perform primarily in the Phoenix area..but have performances throughout the year..in all 50 states. I have written and produced a musical, "Kleo the Kat", which includes 10 original songs. I have recorded 6 albums..of piano and vocal music. My lessons are diligent, yet friendly. I combine fun and learning. ALL of my students, consistently comment on my patience..that is because teaching is my PASSION. I enjoy playing and performing, but there is NO fulfillment like coaching children and adults alike, as they learn to create the music within them. I teach all ages. Currently, my youngest is 3 and my oldest is 83!! I have taught over 600 people of all ages to play music. I began

My grandson has just started taking lessons w/Kenny. Already he has learned so much & I hear him humming his practice pieces around the house & he tells me he likes playing piano. Kenny is very patient & good w/children. Would recommend Kenny highly.
Jeffrey O. Phoenix, AZ

I can teach beginning piano lessons starting as early as age 4 (if the child has shown an interest in music) as well as lessons for an advanced level student. I have 2 different toy pianos available that are great for young children. I use the 'Music for Little Mozarts' series for kids age 4-6. I use method/lesson books as needed with all of my students. We work on music that you want to play and learn! We will work on finger control, scales, arpeggios, technique, and general musicianship. I use flash cards to help you learn to read music faster. For the advanced students, I can help you with your musicality and advanced levels of technique. I can give tips for adding embellishments, improvising, and memorizing music.

About Jeffrey

My Price: There are a lot of people on this site who teach lessons; I've looked through profiles...and their prices. Many of them do not have degrees in music and/or their lessons are expensive. I am a professional musician and educator with the lowest rates I can afford. My pricing is low to be competitive and does not in any way reflect the quality of the lesson. I believe good lessons should be affordable to everyone at a weekly basis. My Teaching Experience: I have taught general music K-8 in a charter school and basically had to build a music program with no funding and almost no supplies. I left this job in favor of teaching privately because the staff and administration were horribly disrespectful and unappreciative of what I did for their school. Teaching privately ...

Dr. Jeff has helped bring music back in my life. I have always wanted to learn how to play the piano and had been trying to teach myself because of my past experience (played trumpet from elementary school– 2 yrs of collage). Learning that way was not ideal though and I was really not progressing at all. I finally decided to start lessons and I can’t tell how grateful I am that I did. Dr. Jeff has helped me learn and practice correctly and I really feel that I am progressing well. I am having so much fun learning and playing.

I have been bringing my daughter to the piano lessons of Jeff for the last six months. I've seen my daughter able to follow his instructions and accomplish the lessons, but most important is the fact of seeing Jeff focused in passing the information to her each lesson. She can be talkative and distracted at her early age, but he has managed to get her attention well. Jeff has shown me his commitment and engagement to his teachings, his patience with my daughter and someone who is not rushing every lesson. He has been always flexible to my schedule, very professional and his prices are very good compared to other options.
