Classical piano is a beautiful art, changing through time. It is a wonder to explore the different worlds of baroque, classical, romantic, and modern music. We will focus on expression and technique, learning the correct style for each period. From beginner Tchaikovsky pieces to sweet Chopin Ballades, it's all at our fingertips.

Curriculum:

Scales- Learning the scales, including arpeggios, broken chords, and correct fingering are all essential to improving technique. And it can be fun too!

Etudes- From Czerny to Chopin to Liszt, all etudes are beneficial, and often required in college auditions as well as competitions. But a lot of them are absolutely gorgeous.

Memorization- A great skill to have is to be able to play from memory. Most recitals, concerts, auditions, festivals, you name it, are all played from memory. It's a fantastic way to improve thinking ability, and self confidence on stage, and your musical abilities.

Ear Training and Sight Reading- ...

About Ekaterina

Originally from St. Petersburg, Russia, I began my musical journey when I was five years old. I am still very passionate about the arts, and strive to learn more every day. I became a student of Marylene Dosse, a phenomenal pianist, teacher, and professor at Penn State, at the age of eight. Since t

Great first lesson!

I have had one other piano teacher. I was fresh out of college. Due to relocation, it ended after a few months, and I never pursued piano lessons afterward. Reason? It felt like work. Several years later, I decided to try again. That is when I found Katie through Take Lessons!!!

Katie is a fun, light-hearted, joyous piano teacher. My lessons are 100% pure fun! She challenges me while inspiring me at the same time. She has taught me to play basic and simple pieces with amazing drama and interest. Her expertise shines through in each lesson I take. I contribute my progress to her showing me how to practice. Measures that would take me days at home take me ten minutes with her! Katie is definitely a rare gem. I feel privileged to have such a talented teacher.
Marylene
Ekaterina was among my best students and by far the most gifted of them. Her musicianship and her intelligence are only matched by her charm and her wit.
She would be a rare teacher in her area with a mixing of Russian musical heritage and European teaching.

In spite of her young age she already has had several years of teaching experience and her students have made very good progress.

I would highly recommend her to students of all ages. She will make the best choice of repertoire, build technical skills and develop the musicianship that is necessary for making a difference for a lifetime love of the musical arts.

I have full confidence in her skills. I have love and respect for her and I am sure you will too.

Amazing!!! A bright, joyful light!

My experience with Kathy has been great. It's been roughly five months and I learned a lot and I'm also much more confident to sing. Learning the right techniques is crucial. Kathy is extremely patient and she adapts the classes to the student goals and aspirations. English is not my first language and she was also always very respectful and patient in explaining everything twice or maybe three times until I get it.

Kathryn has a terrific demeanor, and provides clear, thoughtful suggestions for technique!

I believe in the extraordinary power of music to communicate, to inspire and, often, to heal. That belief underlies all my work. I’ve been teaching Broadway style singing to adults and kids for over ten years, focusing on how to produce a big, beautiful, and vocally safe sound. My students run the gamut from musical theater and opera professionals to kids and total beginners.

My goal is to help you find the power to express through singing your unique self. It doesn't matter whether your voice is professional quality or whether it's even "good" in the conventional sense. It's YOUR voice. It has its own sound and characteristics, its own particular beauty, and the world needs to hear you!

I have advanced training and expertise in the function of the voice, but the most important qualities I offer as a teacher are the simple human ones: understanding, patience, imagination, kindness, enthusiasm, respectfulness and absolute commitment to helping you meet your vocal goals.

Nancy is both a fantastic person and teacher! After being with a voice teacher that led me to harm my voice Nancy has helped me rehabilitate and find strength in my voice. She's always happy to work on anything I bring to her and has a vast array of knowledge. I've been able to increase my upper and lower range with consistency and know that it'll only get better from here. If you're considering, just go with her!

"I highly recommend Isabelle as an expert in teaching French. She has great fluency in both French and English. Isabelle is from France and she regularly visits family there. Here in the United States, she and her husband have raised a family while she worked as an executive for an international company. These skills come forth beautifully in her style of teaching. For me, after one month of French lessons with Isabelle, I am much more comfortable with daily conversation, pronunciation, and verb conjugation. I enjoy our rapport and look forward to deepening my conversation skills with her."

French Grammar Rules: Reading Le Passé Simple

There is one French verb tense that you will likely only come across in literature, the passé simple. French tutor Carol Beth L. shows you how to recognize and understand this tense... The passé simple is a unique tense in the French language. Perhaps one or two centuries ago, it was commonly used like the simple past in English. For example: J'allai au magasin.
