Very passionate about piano and able to convey ideas.. also very good at feeling out what student is seeking to achieve. Definitely recommend Paul if you are wanting to take playing piano as a serious endeavor

My experience with this teacher was horrible. Paul has no patience for a child that might not pay attention as much as necessary. He has forgotten what it is to be a child or how to win over a child and make a lesson fun.
My child had one previous lesson with Paul. It is true that she was not following his directions and his frustration was quite obvious.
On my second visit I was appalled by Paul’s behavior. Again my child wouldn’t sit down on the bench correctly. Verbatim this what occurred next, I quote: “This is not going to work out. Get out of my house NOW, NOW!(Screaming, like I was going to prolong this). I have better things to do than waste my time with your daughter. I don’t want to take your money.

It is true that my daughter can be difficult when approached in an authoritarian manner. However, my daughter is not yet six and Paul brought my daughter to tears. Surely this behavior was at best inappropriate and says more about the person Paul is than about my daughter. A simple “ May I have word with you in private” would be a mature way to part company. Not throwing a 6 year out of your house because you are frustrated. I was horribly offended by his manner and attitude. No way to treat a 6 year old.

This man has no patience with young kids. I would stay away from this teacher unless your child has some experience with piano. Definitely not child friendly.
Normally I do not post reviews unless something extraordinary happens This is one of those: extraordinarily bad.
An apology is in order if this poor excuse for a “teacher” has any understanding of the unnecessary hurt he has caused.

Private Piano Teacher

I am an pianist, improviser, composer, and music theory geek. I love jazz, classical, and rock music. Whatever style of music you want to learn, I will show you how to move toward your goals.

I love working with adults and kids alike! I can teach basic piano skills and classical technique, and for more advanced students I can teach jazz, improvisation, and composition. For every student, my goal is to make lessons fun by teaching you the music you want to play.

I have been playing the piano since preschool and have a B.A. in Music from the University of Minnesota.

Playing piano is one of my favorite things to do so I'd have quite a fun time teaching you. What I teach on piano will help you understand a diverse range of instruments and even genres, and, I think, teach lessons that carry over into life.

About Paul

I have played piano my whole life, and I also play guitar and trumpet. I love jazz, classical, contemporary, and rock music and many other diverse styles. I am an improviser, composer, and music theory enthusiast, very in touch with the creative side of music. I’m easygoing and patient. I put

My goal is to teach students how to actually understand Music, not just play notes. There is something extremely liberating about being able to instantly arrange any song based on an internalized knowledge of the structure of Music (harmony, rhythm, melody, and texture). Whether you want to learn how to play popular tunes by ear, play chords from a lead sheet, or get into advanced jazz harmony and improvisation, my core teaching principles will remain the same. The goal is to learn deeply and internalize, not just memorize notes. My specialty is in jazz, arranging, and composing. I have released 4 albums and had over 125k streams on Spotify. There is nothing I would love more than to help you along your journey with Music and equip you with tools that will last a lifetime!

About Trent

I can't get enough of Music. Whether it be playing Stevie Wonder covers with a funk bank in a college bar, performing solo jazz piano for private events, or staying up till 3 in the morning on a Tuesday trying to figure out a bassline to my newest composition, there is something about Music that ge

Different people learn differently, so I like to vary my teaching methods based on individual students. One way of thinking about something may be very helpful for one student and not so helpful for another. Having had some not-so-great personal experiences with teachers who would only explain a concept in one way, I try hard to avoid this in my teaching. I try to keep the lessons fun and stress-free while still pushing students to meet their full potential. Music is fun because it contains both abstract (i.e. how the music feels) and concrete (eg notes and rhythms) elements, so I try to include both sides of the spectrum in my teaching.

About Chad

I have taken piano lessons for the past 17 years and have been teaching for the last 5. While working on my Bachelor of Arts in Music at Willamette University, I decided to give piano lessons during the summer and found it to be an exciting way to connect with new people of all ages, give them a ski

I have PhD in Piano Performance and 20 years of experience working with piano students of all ages in both online and in person settings. I have taught both in US and Europe, in college settings such as University of Southern California and California State University Los Angeles as well as in young beginners teaching environments such as Pasadena Music Conservatory and my own studio. My students have gone to play many concerts, competitions, auditions and Certificate of Merit exams. Teaching and spreading love for music is my life. I especially enjoy teaching beginners, both kids and adults.

Dr. Ivana Bandic is knowledgeable, patient and genuinely kind. She will always find the right words and suggestions for every context. She listens with intent, and is able to showcase everything she’s talking about during the piani lesions. I wholeheartedly recommend her to everyone interested in learning to play piano and music in general.
