I am a concert pianist with a passion for teaching. From a boarding arts secondary school to prestigious conservatories in both the US and Europe, I have honed my craft, and developed a love for sharing my passion with others. I have taught students at the Yale School of Music and at the Eastman School of Music in the United States. Additionally, I have taught a private studio for a year in Brussels, Belgium and given masterclasses at universities and schools across the Americas. My goal as a teacher is to instill my own love for music in my students.

About Michael
I am a concert pianist with a passion for teaching. From a boarding arts secondary school to prestigious conservatories in both the US and Europe, I have honed my craft, and developed a love for sharing my passion with others. I studied with some of the best teachers in the world at Eastman, the Yale School of Music, the Paris Conservatoire, and the Royal Conservatory of Ghent, in addition to having attended some of the greatest festivals in the world to study with other great pianists and pedagogues. Teaching has always come naturally to me and has felt like a natural extension of my abilities as a performer. I believe it is a necessity to spread what I have learned through teaching.

Michael is a great teacher! I studied with him while he was teaching at Yale. He is a very attentive and careful instructor and generous with his time. He has a profound understanding of music and is very competent also in technical aspects of practicing. I absolutely recommend him!

I've been playing piano for over 25 years and teaching piano for over 10. I use a wide variety of piano methods to fit the individual needs of all my students. Students will learn how to properly care for their instrument, how to read music, music theory, instrument technique, practice techniques, ear training (how to play by ear), and repertoire. I even have my own experimental piano courses that I have developed myself. I do not teach Suzuki method.

About Kyle
Hello potential students! I have a B.A. in instrumental music education and composition. I have taught private lessons for over 12 years. Teaching private music lessons is my primary job, so I have much experience and wisdom compared to teachers who teach "on the side." Students of all ages stay with me a long time because I am very flexible in my teaching and know how to interact with many personalities and learning styles, producing great results and progress. My specialties are piano, woodwinds, and music technology (i.e. recording and production).

Kyle is a great piano teacher! He is very patient with my 12-year old son. Just yesterday he referred to him as “fun Kyle” because he teaches him small songs on the side that he can show friends and family or are for upcoming holidays. He’s always punctual and respectful of our family and home. I’m grateful to have found him!

Kyle has given me contra bass, aka upright bass,weekly lessons from August 2015 through May 2016. I have never played a string instrument prior to this, although I do play piano and have played the flute, bagpipes, and piccolo over the years. I did not need education in reading music.

Kyle was able to take me from sounding like a lower octave version of Jack Benny (a mid-20th century comedian famous for his howlingly horrid violin playing) to a level where I know how to hold the instrument and the bow, the fingerings, bowing technique, and how to get a very respectable sound from the instrument.

He also installed the strings when I received the new instrument, found a manufacturing flaw in the bridge height that the manufacturer subsequently paid to repair, and diagnosed a resonance issue with the instrument that was corrected with a balance weight on the string below the bridge.

Greetings! I specialize in introducing beginners to piano, and have worked with students as young as two and a half! If you're looking for a teacher who makes learning to play piano fun, then please contact me!

I recently filed a patent for an easy-to-read music notation system for beginners, which is so easy that 4 year olds can read and play songs on their own! The basic idea is that just playing the instrument is much easier than reading the notes. For example, instead of reading classical notation, a lot of guitarists play very complex music using tablature, which is a way of writing notes using numbers instead of dots on a staff; it writes music in a language they can already read, so that's what I did with piano, then violin, viola and cello.

Students around age 10 and under have a hard time orienting the piano staff because lower notes go left on the keyboard and higher notes go right, so I start young students by orienting the piano staff in the same direction as the ...

About Zach
I play violin, viola, cello, guitar and piano. I love classical music (especially Bach), improvising on the piano, Irish fiddle music on the violin, and Spanish guitar!

Since 2002, I’ve taught more than 27,000 lessons. From 2009-2012 I owned and operated a set of three fine arts centers for kids across West Michigan called Lil’ Learners. I currently teach 50+ students each week online, in my home studio, at Keyboard World, and for Hamilton Schools Homeschool co-op and Niles’ Homeschool Partnership.

My method of teaching focuses on building up strengths and knowledge so that a student can become proficient at learning on their own. I do this by creating a custom curriculum for each individual I teach. This accomplishes two things, keeping you as a student entertained and enthusiastic. I have background in music theory, and have taught for several years to beginners, and intermediate students. This has allowed me to learn to adapt to each individuals learning style so that they progress quickly, and comfortably.

About Austin
Austin has been teaching private lessons since 2012 and is currently available to teach lessons at in home, and online. Austin has helped students find passion in music, prepare for performances, complete classes, and overcome stage fright.

Austin received his training at Stetson Universities school of music in 2009 where he received training in music theory, and piano. Austin also studied guitar privately with an instructor for 2 years. As an expert in his field, Austin looks forward to helping new students achieve their goals. Austin's teaching style is personable, fun, informative and energetic!

I have been teaching music for over 5 years and I love working with beginning and intermediate piano players and horn players of all levels. I realize that each student is unique and always approach individual lessons with my student's particular goals in mind. I have a basic curriculum that I use in order to build a solid musical foundation for my students, but I am open to working on whatever kind of music or repertoire that they may enjoy. It is always exciting to me when a student learns a new skill that helps them in their musical expression or achieves a goal (such as playing a song they really enjoy) that gives them a little extra fulfillment in life.

About Rachel
I am a freelance horn player with a passion for teaching both horn and piano. I have a Bachelor's of Music from The University of Arizona and a Master's of Music from California State University Long Beach.

I have been teaching privately and in group settings for over 5 years and really enjoy getting to pass on the knowledge and musicianship that I have received from my teachers on to the next generation.

I teach using a base curriculum but also love to work on pieces that students want to play outside of their main course.

About McKenna
Hi there! I am McKenna Slack, a classically trained vocalist and pianist. I graduated from Point Loma Nazarene University in 2017 with a Bachelors degree in Music, with a concentration in opera and have been working professionally in the San Diego area since then. Well, actually, since before then! I started working with San Diego Opera back in 2015 as a member of their young artists program, Opera Exposed!, and continue to sing in this program, as well as mainstaige productions. My voice and piano teaching began in the summer of 2013 when I took on my first students just to earn a few bucks during summer break. I have since fallen in love with teaching music and helping each of my students discover what it is that makes them love music too! I aspire to cater to each individual student of mine, meeting their needs as musicians and providi
ng them with the skills necessary to reach their goals. Shoot me a message to see how I can help you!

I can help provide you with the basic building blocks of the Piano. I will teach you everything from how to name simple chords, name the individual note names of the piano keys to scales, cadences, and arpeggios, all while learning some great piano pieces.

About Jose
Hi! My name is Jose and I'm currently a college student studying musical composition with my main instrument being the Saxophone, an instrument I have been playing for the last 7 years. I plan to help students understand either the Saxophone and Piano as not just instruments, but as tools to express emotion. My teaching style allows for the flexible yet classical approach to each instrument, allowing the player's individuality to shine through while also teaching the small nuances that often go untaught by many other teachers. I hope you'll consider me!

lass is personalized to the skillset and interests of the student, with the primary goal of inspiring them to learn and love music, Daniel's classes are a rigorous and exciting time for student, teacher and parent alike.

Daniel is currently employed as a pianist at the Juilliard School, LaGuardia High School For The Performing Arts, with The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater Company, The Martha Graham School Of Contemporary Dance, The Manhattan Youth Ballet and many more. He has taught a growing studio of piano students over his time in New York, as well as teaching for 'Music To Your Home', a major musical education company. He has taught theory, structure and the relationships between music and dance as a Guest Professor at The National University of Costa Rica, as well as in improvisation classes at The Ballet Hispanico School (NYC).
Daniel received extensive training and his Bachelor's Degree in Classical Piano Performance from The University Of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, and at El Instituto Superior De Artes, Costa Rica. He has also been trained as an elite Dance Accompanist for over a decade under the mentorship of the best accompanists in New York City. His work as an accompanist has brought him to Barcelona (Spain), Athens (Greece), San Jose (Costa Rica), Chicago (Illinois), and put him in the employment of nearly every major school and dance company in New York City.

Daniel would love to bring his skills, experience and love of music to you and your family.

A hour lesson with Daniel might go something like this!

Technical Work: [10 minutes]

- Scales, posture and technique, and 'Dozen A Day, Daily Piano Lesson Exercises' as well as other method's of technical development created by Daniel to work on dynamic shading, arpeggios, and tone often function to start the lesson, engaging the student's focus and challenging their memory to 'bring up' what was achieved in the previous lesson.

Repertoire: [15 minutes]

-Pieces are chosen from the 'Bastien Piano Teaching Method' which are supplemented by Daniel's personal collection of pieces and based on the students skill level and interest.
In this section we interact with the full capacity of the student to read music, master rhythm and technical difficulties, add increasingly subtle detail, achieve consistency and focus and all with the intention of eventually performing the work. Along the way we instill the knowledge and skills necessary to perform before an audience, often creating mock-performance environments.

Additional repertoire: [15 minutes]

- Students often learn and play Duet Repertoire with Daniel, engaging in the experience of Chamber musician creation and learning the importance of collaboration and listening.
- Students interested in pop and jazz begin work on aural skills or 'Ear Training', learning pieces by way of listening to them and then creating piano arrangements from the transcriptions they craft with Daniel's help. These arrangements become pieces in the student's repertoire.

Music Theory: [10 minutes]

- Theory: Students are taught early on to read 'key signatures' and 'time signatures' in tandem with the development of their scale work and their repertoire. Students learn the significance of the ordering of the scales, the intervals (distance between notes) which define them and multiple ways to deconstruct and define a scale and its parts, thereby allowing students to continue learning on their own, as well as developing the terminology to communicate with other musicians.
Theory gradually increases in complexity based on the student’s interest and skill level, to encompass every facet of chord making, harmony relationships and Roman Numeral Analysis.

- Vocab Word: Students receive a 'Vocab Word' every lesson. This word is a musical term, which will help the student to accurately communicate with Daniel and other musicians as well as more deeply understand the musical language.
- Flash Cards: Students also receive and develop a 'flash-card library'. This is a note-learning game which students play in each lesson with the goal of 'beating last weeks time' using increasing skills in sheet-music reading. As the student learns more notes and achieves faster times, the 'flash card library' grows and the challenge increases.

Improvisation: [5 minutes]

- Every lesson Daniel and the student improvise at least one piece of music. The student is guided over a period of weeks to internalize the concept of improvisation, eventually freeing them to the infinite and inspiring possibilities inherent in the practice of 'Improv'. Improvisations use and thereby reinforce the scales learned at the beginning of each lesson and demonstrate the importance of listening, collaboration, imagination and harmony.

The Color Game: [5 minutes]

- This is a game played at the end of each lesson in which Daniel and the student take turns striking a 'triad' (a chord with three notes). With eyes closed, the two participants begin to 'listen closely' to the chord as it is then restruck and eventually attempt to 'hear a color'. Students may also 'hear' shapes, textures, and scenes, which Daniel and the student then share with each other to great fascination and amusement, revealing similarities of interpretation and most importantly, opening the students mind to a new and magical understanding of sound.
This game, related to the psychological phenomenon of synesthesia, engages the students imagination, self-confidence and concludes each lesson is a fun, inspiring and exciting way.

Piano Notebook:

- All of Daniel's students keep a 'piano notebook', in which they receive a practice plan at the close of each lesson. The practice plan outlines the goals and methods of practice for the coming week, as well as containing advice from and a synopsis of that day's lesson. The notebook further serves as a workbook and a reference used throughout the learning process.

Sincerely,
Daniel Hyde
