Private Piano Teacher

I've been teaching piano lessons for almost 10 years and I offer weekly private lessons to beginner, and intermediate students from age 4 through high school. The piano lesson include a balance of theory, ear training, sight reading and repertoire appropriate to the student's level and musical ability.
So get ready to make some music! I'll make sure that each lesson will challenge your level of concentration and ambidexterity. Using both hands together, we'll slowly begin to play a series of simple, but melodic tunes with the right hand playing the lead, and the left hand adding harmony.

Hi everyone!

It is a pleasure for me to teach music. I have been teaching piano and cello for more than ten years. All my students no matter which level of playing are having a good quality time in the lesson. Through my lesson, student learns music from different genres such as music theory,music history, ear training and music appreciation. Because of that, my student always tends to learn quicker than they expected.
Besides teaching, I also perform. My philosophy in music learning is that, it is never easy to learn an instrument. Therefore, learning in a creative atmosphere and giving out precise guidance is not only good for students, but also good for me. By exploring music together each week, it will be a fun and engaging experience for both of us towards music learning.

About Alice

I am a classically trained pianist and piano/ cello teacher. By more than ten years of teaching experience, learning with me is going to be engaging and enchanting. I chose the right method books and design the lesson plan/ practice plan according to your needs. Through my lesson, you are not only

I have no strings background and I thoroughly enjoyed my first Ukulele lesson with Aleksis. Not only did we go through techniques, we also got to play a Bob Marley song at the end of the lesson. Who knew it was possible to play an entire song on the first lesson?! It was really fun and I really look forward to our next lesson.

I'm a 49 year old trying to take my piano skills to the next level. Kelly is very patient and after just two lessons I've learned quite a lot. Looking forward to continuing with her and highly recommend.
Daniel
Kelly is easy to connect with and took the time to find out what my interests were so that she could create a plan oriented towards my goals.
Ryder G.
We are return customers to Kelly. My son loved her as a piano teacher but we stopped when he was taking trumpet during school. Now that he’s over trumpet, we excitedly reenrolled with Kelly. She’s so encouraging and positive. We just did my son’s first online lesson through TakeLessons and it worked flawlessly. I’d recommend Kelly in a heartbeat.
