I want to inspire my students of all ages to reach their potential as musicians. I work with my students on sheet reading, key and time signatures, developing an understanding of harmonic and tonal concepts, and proper technique. My lessons are tailored to the student’s interests, goals and skill level.

About Lilan

I started my classical music training at four years old and continued formal lessons until high school. I grew up in a very musical household as my father is also a professional musician. Through my formal training and my further study, I have built up a substantial knowledge of music theory. A

Lilan is an excellent piano instructor with her professional skills and years of playing experience. She provided me with practical guidance on my playing skills as well as the emotion in the performance with her on-stage performance experience. She is also a responsible instructor. She will play the chapter by herself to let me better understand the performance. Thanks to her professional instructions and patience, my playing skills have been improved a lot. I will recommend Lilan to everyone who would like to expect an improvement on their playing skills as well as receiving great instruction experience.
Vi
I cannot recommend Lilan highly enough as a piano teacher. She is calm, patient, and dedicated in making sure you learn both the basics of piano and intricacies of any piece you want to play. She is also an excellent pianist - check out her videos on this page! Thanks, Lilan!

I have been taking lessons from Michael for about 9 months, and it has been one of the best experiences I have ever had. He is an excellent guitar player, and instructor. He is patient, thorough, and very willing to pace his instruction with the ability of the student. I am in my late 50's and he is just the person I had hoped for in a teacher. I consider going to lesson not a chore, but a pleasure.

It a great experience so far !

Keith is great! My nearly 6 year old son has only been seeing Keith for a few weeks, but he’s already learned so much. Keith is everything you want in a teacher - he’s funny, patient and has a really great way of explaining drumming concepts is such a way that even a student as young as my son can grasp. Even my son has said Keith is a great teacher!

Keith is a great teacher! He gives excellent technical instruction and makes it a lot of fun. Our son loves his lessons with Keith!

I love helping students succeed, and to feel a sense of accomplishment as well as having a good time while playing. I try to make every lesson something exciting to look forward to, leaving them wanting to practice before every lesson, whether it be learning a new piece, improvisations, singing, or any new activities. I consider myself as a guide, not someone that pushes or dictates students. It is my interest to create a positive, kind, genuine, fun, and creative atmosphere during a lesson.

About April

I have picked up and loved the flute for 16 years, and I wish to share this passion and creativity with students. I have had the opportunity to study under Emily McKay and Marco Granados, as well as perform in masterclasses with Trevor Wye, William Bennett, and Lorna Mcghee. As a recent Denver ci

Kim
April is a great teacher! I've had a lot of fun working on my technique with her and I've enjoyed her teaching style. As a person who's been playing for over 10 years, it's awesome to have a teacher that's willing to keep teaching you new things.
Kira
April shared several innovative breath exercises to help round out my tone ... excited to be on this journey back to my music! I appreciate her focus on finding joy and freedom in playing.

I provide a clear, concise, proven path to success at playing the harmonica. I focus on the most important aspects at mastering the instrument. We also have fun as well!

About Tim

Unlike other teachers that teach multiple instruments and add harmonica to their list, Tim sole focus and expertise is the harmonica! Tim began playing harmonica at the age of thirteen. In addition to the guidance and nurturing he received from his musical family, Tim studied with harmonica gre

Tom
I'm the type of student who tries to fit my practice time in between other aspects of my busy schedule. Tim is the type of teacher that understands that, and caters each session to the advances I've made, and the places where I've fallen behind. With me he always found a way to compliment me on any progress, and tips on where to head next.

Tim's approach is laid back, and yet deep in the knowledge that hes willing to share from decades of honing his craft. Never intimidating; always helpful and completely straight.

A top notch instructor in my book, well worth every minute spent in his studio. And generous to a fault, with knowledge and tools by which to learn!
Gabor R.
Tim has been an awesome teacher and my skills are improving dramatically. He also answers the questions about what key, why and where did it come from. A very skilled musician.

"Outstanding artist and teacher!

Lilly is a thoughtful instructor. I loved how she took time to understand my child's level of instruction and ways to learn best. I was particularly impressed with her follow through. She took time during a non scheduled day to e-mail and ask if my student had any questions. These things inspire my daughter to practice and is helping her to love the piano. Thank you Lilly!"

He’s one of the best bassists I’ve ever played with.
He’s got a fantastic ear and great musical knowledge.
I would definitely recommend taking lessons from him if you’re looking to pick up a new instrument or are wanting to improve on what you already know."

6 Piano Songs to Help You Learn Major and Minor Scales

Need to work on your major or minor scales? Piano songs abound by both classical and contemporary pianists that can help you improve your skills. Here, St. Augustine, FL Heather L. shares her recommendations.    Even as a piano teacher, I can be sympathetic to students who find themselves practicing major and minor scales over and over without any variation. Scales are often cited as the least favorite part of taking piano lessons. Sometimes, well, a lot of the time, the best way t …
