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.

Private Piano Teacher

With 10 years of teaching piano lessons and 3 degrees in piano, I have both the expertise and experience to provide a uniquely tailored learning environment to piano students of all ages and levels. Teaching excites me because it gives me the opportunity to find out each student's individuality and to help them reach their inner potential. Since student goals vary from wanting to play chord charts in a garage band to aspiring to become a concert pianist, I do not have a rigid teaching method - rather, I tailor it to each student. Beyond the fundamentals of technique and reading music, piano lessons with me include focusing any amount of the following: classical, improvisation, composition, theory, jazz, popular styles, hymns, etc... I can't wait to begin guiding you on your musical journey with the piano!

About Ozzie

I am a pianist and a passionate teacher of pianists of all shapes and sizes. The joy of playing the piano is one that my skills as a teacher help me infuse into my students. I also find it to be quite a positive feedback loop for me: teaching makes me want to hone my own skills and playing well giv

I’ve been delighted with my lessons with Semyon from day one. I had studied classical piano as a child but took a hiatus of several decades, and was somewhat nervous about starting up again. Semyon has put me at ease, and is so enthusiastic and encouraging, it’s contagious. He also has a focus on technique that I was looking for (scales and Hanon so far, which I know I need!). He knows his stuff but doesn’t overwhelm me with too much too soon. As an adult student, I couldn’t be more pleased with my choice and highly recommend him.
Patricia
As a retiree who has recently returned to piano after a decades-long hiatus, I knew I’d need a teacher with experience teaching adults. Semyon is proving to be excellent. He is a skilled musician and teacher whose approach combines enjoyable piano pieces, exercises for agility and the fundamentals of scales and theory. He is patient and responsive to what I want to accomplish. I have learned in each lesson, seen improvement each week, and enjoy the diversity of assignments. In short, i’m having a grand time and highly recommend him.

Elisabetta has been teaching my daughter since January 2017. She has always been so patient and kind. My daughter has so much fun during her lessons and has learned so much. She enjoys them so much that when the pandemic hit, we knew we had to continued with her lessons online. She still manages to keep her engaged and interested during virtual lessons.
She has been with us for over 3 years and It is still something my daughter looks forward to every week. You cant find a better teacher. We love her!
Ruth
I have been studying with Elisabetta for almost three years and I appreciate her more and more. I'm not a young person anymore but I think I progressed quite a bit thanks to her encouragement. She is a very good teacher but also a very intelligent and fun person. She never looks at the clock and always wants to hear me play "another piece." I am so happy to have her in my life.
