I've been teaching piano now for 15 years. My goal is for the student to learn to play by feel in addition to reading music. A standard lesson would consist of some playing in books and going over some music theory followed by playing by feel. This would include blues,jazz, and rock grooves. My approach is creative and customized to the prospective student. The student needs to enjoy learning the piano. A happy student is a successful one.

About Paul

I am a musician who has played in many bands. My primary instrument is piano and voice. I also play rhythm guitar. My current group is a "Who" tribute band, performing a complete history of the rock group, The Who. Please check out our website magicbustour.com I play by ear but also read music.

Private Piano Teacher

I have been teaching piano for over twenty years. I specialize in classical and pop. I love teaching babies and young children but I teach all ages. Piano is the hardest instrument. I try to make every lesson fun while still providing structure and a little bit of strictness. I use the Mark Nevin, Schaum, and Little Mozart series. I have tons of music to share for students that need to branch out and don't know what to play. Piano is my passion. I love sharing my love for this instrument with others.

About Kay

Here are the core things that I focus on in Piano lessons.

Alignment is the basis a great technique. Each person is different, and knowing how to help them release unwanted tension is critical.
Building hand coordination is essential to playing piano. A variety of agility and strengthening exercises will help you gain greater control and comfort in playing.

Articulation and phrasing is how pianists convey emotion. By Understanding the different colors available, a performer can create a dynamic and moving experience.

Selecting songs for your skill level and interest is important. Playing music you love will make your experience more enjoyable

About Rachelle

I love sharing the knowledge and techniques I've learned through years of training and performing. Lessons are so much more than just learning the notes.

"Phillip is a great teacher, kind, encouraging and experienced. He really knows how to make a student comfortable and loving music. He has been helping my younger daughter prepare piano competition online, starting from song selection to now perfect her piece. He is not only teaching her how to play the piece but also to understand the music theory associated with the piece, as well as the needed techniques and practice to master the piece correctly. My daughter enjoys very much learning from Phillip and gradually gains confidence in playing her piece. It is evident that Phillip enjoys teaching his students and knows how to guide them based on their levels. Thank you so much, Phillip!"
