I enjoy working with most of my students, especially those who practice hard. I find all students unique and they response differently to my requests or questions. I feel that very often I need to react spontaneously to their responses. For the beginners I mainly focus on reading musical notes and learning correct rhythmic values. With beginners who haven’t played the piano at all I teach finger exercises written finger numbers only. Then I use Piano Adventures theory, lesson, technique and artistry, performance, and popular music books. Although Alfred’s and Bastien’s methods are well known, I prefer Piano Adventures because they introduce the coordination of right and left hand in more progressive manner. At the beginning the following will be covered.
• Postures at the piano, finger numbers, high and low on the keyboard
• Music alphabet, Intervals
• Musical form, Dynamic marks
• Staff; line notes, space notes
• Time signature, accent mark, legato, staccato
• Basic chords ...

This teacher knows exactly what she was doing. She sat with me patiently and helped me work through and explained everything to me. She is such a great person too. I will be sticking with her because she is challenging me.

Piano:
A great instrument to learn if a basic and well laid out instrument suits you best. The notes are easy to find and with my method it will be easy to learn so you will playing songs in no time. I always start from the very beginning and only move on when the student feels confident about the lesson. Learning to play piano is a lot of fun and very rewarding. I will teach you the basics of finger technique, notes, music notation, reading music, rhythms, songs, theory, etc. Piano and all instruments will bring much joy to your life.

Karen is an incredibly skillful teacher. She is very passionate about music and it easy to be comfortable with her. She shares her training and knowledge very clearly. The vocal exercises seem very unique and holistic for body and voice health. She is very encouraging, caring, and soul-uplifting. I feel like I have a new connection with my voice and all that is connected to using it... as an instrument and the journey is only just starting. 45 minutes went by so fast. I am looking forward to my next lessons.

Catherine
I thought I wanted to take viola lessons. Then I read her website and I realized that she might be able to help me get my voice back! I thought there was no hope ever. She has been extremely generous with her time, and I haven't seen her yet, but I'm not buying the viola I was planning on buying. I play cello, and piano still, but I am going to see if she can help me with my voice. She sounds incredible. I never dreamed that I could even have HOPE like this!

I've been teaching piano lessons for nine years, and over that time have taught more than 200 students, from ages 4 to adults. I love to see each student find their own passion for music - and I look forward to doing the same for you! While developing classical technique and music reading, within a few months you'll be playing popular songs of your own choosing! With thirty years of piano playing experience, I believe music should be a joy to play at any level.

What more can be said about Kelly. She turned this piano rock and roller into a classical pianist. Such beautiful music. She always knows which piece will encourage and challenge you. She has a great knowledge of music and how to help progress your ability. I was a somewhat experienced player when I started with her, but clumsy and without the proper knowledge of expression. I can't believe the player I have become, owing everything to Kelly. Wonderful, gifted family too. On to bigger challenges with Kelly!
Ronald K.
Absolutely AMAZING! Great for the mind body and soul. Almost two years ago, at the young age of 65, I began taking Piano lessons with Kelly. Having a good teacher, coach, or instructor is so important to the success of any journey.
Kelly has the special qualities that every teacher must have to be effective.
Comfortable from the very first lesson, Kelly's enthusiasm, observations, and teaching skills make every lesson a unique experience that will motivate you
and keep you coming back for more.
Kelly is an excellent choice for anyone of "Any Age" wanting to experience the benefits and joy of studying music. Go for it!

I started my piano playing experience as a high school student knowing absolutely nothing about music. I really enjoyed piano lessons with Cheri because she is a great instructor. She is kind, patient, and understanding. I always looked forward to lessons every week knowing I would have a great time. From individual music lessons to playing for an audience, it was always fun and exciting. I highly recommend music lessons with Cheri!
Janaé
Cheri was a breath of fresh air every lesson. For an adult beginner I was nervous starting but Cheri welcomes you in and breaks down the basics in a fun non-judgmental environment.
William
I have an awesome time taking lessons from Cheri. From the beginning when I was learning lessons from different books to currently learning pieces by ear, from playing solo pieces to being part of a band, she has always been patient and fun and very knowledgeable. Being an adult student is an interesting and challenging experience and Cheri has been very supportive every step of the way. She even helped me write a song that included guitar and vocals that we performed with some fellow students at a recent recital. I've appreciated all the time she's worked with me and hope to continue taking lessons from her as long as I enjoy playing the piano.

"Great teacher! My son really enjoy taking lesson from Lana in the last year or so. He was with another teacher for a couple years but didn't quite gasp the concept of reading the notes. He was playing by memory which I thought it wasn't right for a beginner or at his level. We since than switch to Lana and noticed the difference when he practice and the techniques he put on during his lesson and recital is incredible to see as a mother. I'm very happy with the way she teaches my son and she shows a very positive feedback with compliments at the end of each lesson. I think that is very important as a teacher.

Since than, my older son have follow my younger son's foot step in taking lesson with Lana as well :-)"

I've been going for a few weeks now and I feel like I have already picked up a ton that I could not have learned on my own. She pays a lot of attention to my form to make sure I am not picking up any bad habits, which is exactly what I was looking for in an instructor.

Lessons are always super clear and encouraging. I never feel like things are going too slowly OR too fast.

Highly recommended!"
