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.

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.

Private Classical 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

My sixteen-year-old has been taking with Ozzie since the fall. His sound is richer and cleaner than it has ever been. Ozzie is very technically oriented. He emphasizes the hand work, finger work, and overall technique. Thaddaeus' playing sounds so much more mature after these months with Ozzie! Thanks, Ozzie!

Students will work towards learning music by the great classical composers such as Mozart, Bach, Haydn, Beethoven, Kabalevsky, Schubert, Grieg and many more! In addition to classical studies, we will visit other genres of music including Jazz, Blues, Folk, Pop, etc. However, creating a classical foundation is fundamental and essential to developing proper technique and artistry.

Online Classical Piano Teacher

Quirky, artsy, non-conformist music teacher for all ages!

I have been playing for 25 years and teaching for the past 6 years. I have an out-of the-box, unique teaching style that combines traditional, Suzuki, and proprietary (my own) teaching methods, which I use in varying combinations to suit each individual student's needs.
I'm experienced teaching a wide variety of musical styles (anything except rap and country).
I insist on classical foundations but am always open to new music, often using students' selections to teach them musical skills.
I have experience teaching students with minor learning disabilities, as well as ADD/ADHD and Asperger's, both of which I have myself.
This makes me a better, more flexible teacher, and I am open to working with you and/or your child, even as far as incorporating music lessons into homeschool curriculum.
I do take teaching music seriously, and I do require parental involvement on a regular basis, as I consider this crucial to learning

About Susan Skye

I started singing when I heard the musical "Cats" at age 8. I decided I wanted to sing like those people, and that's exactly what I did: I sang my little heart out until I had a great voice. At age 11, I was asked to play the bassoon in the school band, which also required piano lessons. This

"My son warmed up to him very quickly - it said true they say kids know it cause me being the mother I felt the compassion and warmth Gabe had and so did my little one. We have been taking classes With someone else prior where I had to drive and go and this has been so much easier for us busy moms who can stay at home and continue the work while our child is learning- Gabe is so patient and has this calm demeanor and that is so natural that kids pick up and feel comfortable- to teach kids you have to have a certain personality and Gabe sure does. I trust him so much and feel comfortable while he is teaching my son and I’m in the office downstairs- I immediately felt comfortable with him teaching my son and being in my home which is not easy to feel with just anyone- he truly cares and I have never seen him look at his watch just to get out but rather leaving the child with enough to learn and practice and that alone comes from his quality of care and compassion that he takes pride in to make sure these kids learn. I think my son learned much quicker then the previous teacher I took him too. He is made for this and I would

"For 2020, I focused a lot on left-hand ostinatos for improvising, and practicing scales & chords. I also worked on composition, recording, and in general improved the timing of both hands.

For classical piano, I worked a bit on the Adagio from the Moonlight Sonata, the Eb Major Nocturne and the Adagio from the C major Mozart Concerto, and also the first Invention.

I dedicated more time to the improvising and ostinato practice. While my pedaling improved, it still has a ways to go before I can play some of the classical piano repertoire.

In any case, it was a lot of fun and I learned a lot!

Thanks very much!"
