Local Lessons & Private Teachers

Find the perfect local teacher near you

Benefits of Local Lessons

  • Convenience

    (In-Home)

    Manage your time more effectively by cutting out the commute.

  • Familiar Environment for Kids

    (In-Home)

    Young kids may be a bit nervous in a new setting. Taking lessons at home is comfortable and familiar.

  • Focus

    (Teacher Location)

    It's easy to get distracted at home. Meeting at your teacher's location often cuts back on distractions so you can focus on learning.

  • Teaching Tools

    (Teacher Location)

    Depending on what you're learning, the teacher's location may have access to better resources that wouldn't be available in your home.

How Local Lessons Work

  • Search & Book Online

    Search for a teacher in your ZIP code and browse profiles until you find the right match.

  • Select Location

    You can select a teacher for in-home lessons or travel to their location - typically a studio or library.

  • Connect

    You'll have the opportunity to speak with your instructor before your first lesson.

Not only does he teach, but he’s also in high-demand for professional music gigs all over the country! Murray is very patient and has a tremendous passion to teach at ALL LEVELS!! Take me for example, I’m not a beginner, but I needed to sharpen my skills and kick a number of bad habits -Murray is perfect for that!

First lesson today and things went smoothly. Jeremy took time to determine what my son could and couldn't do and built the lesson around those skills. My son's attention can drift but Jeremy was attentive, patient, and made real world connections.........which I appreciate.

My 10 year old son loves playing little riffs on the piano but really didn't want lessons for fear it would be too much like school. Peter has been awesome about tailoring the lessons so that my son can choose the Music he likes and move forward from his place of interest. Peter is a skilled and gifted pianist, and my son is totally inspired to keep playing and put in the work to improve.

I have been working with Peter for a little over a year and although I'm moving away, I will be continuing my sessions with him over video. Over the past year, I've had the most incredible mentoring experience with Peter and would highly recommend him to students of all ages. I used to play piano as a kid and quit when I was in middle school, and Peter has helped me regain, maintain and build on my skills. He takes measures to keep me accountable in my practice and also nurtures and encourages me creatively -- his experience as a composer comes in handy and we have dope jam sessions. In addition to his musical teaching practice, Peter is also training in somatic and trauma healing modalities that infuse his work with students with care and attunement. I know some parents who work with him keep him around their kids as a life coach and buddy as well as a music teacher. He's the best and I will miss seeing him every week in person!

Steve is bringing me along at a good pace that challenges me to improve each week. He is very patient and helpful in showing me how to achieve the right results on the mandolin, and makes each lesson enjoyable. I can hear the improvement in my playing each week.
