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.

I started voice lessons with Celine back in September/October. I didn't know much about proper and healthy technique as well as proper breathing. Celine taught me all of that and not only that but how I should treat my body by eating healthy and working out.

Since the beginning my voice has become stronger. I am able to sustain longer phrases in singing, the use of dynamics and proper placement when singing. I can't believe how far I have become! I sang all my life but I was singing with the worst technique possible. Celine has helped me to find my true voice and soon it will all come together!

I take lessons with Celine once a week and I enjoy her enthusiasm and kindness even if I don't do my best. Thank you Celine for helping me reach my dream faster to become a great singer!

I approach private lessons with an open ear and an open mind, preferring to take cues from my students' own interests as a guide towards choosing repertoire and building a foundation in theory and technique that will best suit each individual student's needs and goals for their study with me. I teach all styles and genres; no one style is 'sacred' or above any other!

In my 8+ years of lessons with Paul, he was always patient and committed to helping me learn how to play piano. I learned a variety of different pieces and skills, and his methods for practicing have stuck with me to this day.
Dennis
Pavel was a great piano teacher and guided me through my learning journey. I took lessons with him for over 8 years and can now sight read, play from memory, and create new tunes on my own. I focused mainly on classical compositions, but Pavel was always willing to help me learn modern songs. He is a very kind person who emphasizes discipline when it comes to practice.

This course is for those who are new to piano. You will learn how to read music, play, and basic music theory.

**Piano book is required**

I am happy to help you purchase a book if you don't have one yet. I recommend Faber's "Piano Adventures" series which is available on Amazon or on their website, but you are more than welcome to use another method if you prefer (i.e. Alfred, or whatever you might already have).

"I played piano for 13 years, from ages 5 to 18, and then just stopped when I went away to college. I had aptitude for the instrument but did not have the discipline to sit down and practice. Fast forward 17 years, and I get intimidated just looking at a piano! I realized if I ever wanted to play again I'd have to find an instructor. It was so easy to find Evelyn via Red Pelican Music, and I started classes right away. It was a little frustrating to start from square one, but I know I really had to (I'd forgotten so much!). Evelyn was always encouraging and knew exactly what I needed to hear and learn. She also knew just when to introduce actual classical pieces instead of having me focus on the beginner books with short pieces and music theory. I love working with her and have made so much progress in the <6 months we have been working together. I would highly recommend her to any beginner or to someone re-starting as a beginner. And, of course, she's a highly accomplished pianist, so any skilled pianists looking for instruction would benefit from her teaching."

"When I began taking piano lessons with Ruth, I had some elementary experience playing instruments years ago. I am an older adult student and although I hesitated initially to start learning again, I am very happy that I did start taking piano with Ruth. She understands exactly my strong and weak points and suggests better ways for me to practice. She is patient, tactful and encouraging and helps me working on my technique. I've been enjoying my classes with Ruth immensely. And I've been enjoying listening to her playing as well. Any time, at the end of our class, I ask her to play a different piece for me, she does it beautifully. I can highly recommend Ruth for children and adults alike."

Ivan himself is capable of bringing out the best in your art when you least expect it, that’s what makes him great at what he does as a person because he is very understanding and will do everything in his power to see you succeed and bloom. Ivan has worked with me for many years and if it wasn’t for his positivity and encouragement that he would bring with him to every session, I wouldn’t be the man I was today without him"

"Maria is not your average piano teacher. She does not merely teach you to play the piano--she teaches you to feel the music, to really experience it and, most importantly, to enjoy it. As an advanced adult student, I went through a few different teachers before finally finding Maria. I am so glad I did! She is taking my playing to a whole new level and going over my technique with a fine-toothed comb. I cannot recommend her enough!!"

Motivation to practice on a daily basis is always a challenge at this young age, but Niki has instilled in our daughter a passion for piano. I love to hear my daughter practice her songs every day and go to her classes well prepared and motivated. This is something achieved only by an excellent teacher!
