Sophia
Bonnie really knows her stuff. Reading patterns is hard for a first timer and she goes through the patterns well. She does well teaching online and makes it easy to follow.
Susan
Bonnie is a great resource for knitting help! She's knowledgeable and patient. We did have a few tech issues, but she gave me extra time, which was above and beyond, since the issues mostly were from my end. I do have to say though, that a zoom lesson doesn't compare to being together in person, but it's still a good option when that isn't available.

Hello!

I am an experienced teacher of 8 years. I specialize in teaching beginner and intermediate piano students. I absolutely love teaching kids, however all ages are welcome! My lessons are customized to the needs and goals of each student. We’ll begin learning songs from the very first lesson as we gain skills in note reading, music theory, ear training, sight reading, technique, and more!

I can’t wait to meet you!

About Rachel

I am so excited to be able to take on more piano students and see their skills and love of music dev

Rachel was my piano teacher from middle school through high school, and she was always encouraging and focused. She is a gentle and patient, which makes her a great choice for young kids (or ultra-sensitive middle schoolers, like me - or really just anyone who isn't already a flawless prodigy when it comes to music). She was good at selecting pieces that I would enjoy and that would stretch me, and she was flexible enough to work around my own musical goals (like playing by chords).
She's an experienced instructor, a skilled player, and a positive mentor figure to have in your child's life.
Definitely recommend.
Andrea
I took lessons from Rachel for 7 years. She's a fantastic beginner piano teacher that taught me the joy of learning and inspired me to go into the professional field of music.

I've really been enjoying lessons and have been getting a lot out of them! Flexibility with scheduling concerns has also been well appreciated!
Baileigh B.
My daughter was so nervous for her first lesson and Phillip was amazing. She is 14 and said, "He didn't make me feel bad that I am not as good as I should be and so that makes me feel like maybe i can play better."
So grateful Phillip - she is anxious to spend the summer learning from you - we appreciate your approach and as he said ability to "put her at ease" so she can feel comfortable to learn. Awesome first lesson.

Hello Students,
I have been playing most of my life. I started playing professionally at 17, playing with a number of professional bands playing all over Michigan. I have been teaching drum students since the age of 19, teaching well over 500 students to date.

Teaching students has been one of my passions with music. I hope to motivate my students to learn to play and love the drums as much as I do.

I work with each student on an individual basis to help them learn and understand drumming technique using books and techniques that will help to develop instinctive skills and ear technique.

I work with snare drum / rudimental technique with all my students and drum set technique, as most students want to learn how to play a drum set. Many of my students are in school band learning snare drum and percussion technique. Basic snare drum technique is important for any student to master and understand to learn to apply to snare drum and drum set technique.

Building a solid

Cynthia O.
A great passionate violin instructor.
Loquacious, but each moment of verbal conversation has a message that leads to the musical lessons of the day. I really appreciate her knowledge and skill. I am often reminiscent of my violin instructor as a child. Each session leaves me with the zeal to practice hard in eager preparation
for the next.
Robert
Kathy is a kind, patient and methodical teacher. She develops your piano skills with a structured program of theory and exercises geared toward constant improvement. She has helped me improve my piano technique throughout our time together. I have been able to play increasingly challenging pieces on a regular basis with her. I look forward to steadily improving my piano skills.
Robert Bilenchi
I have recently returned from a week long stay at the Sonatina Piano Camp in Bennington VT and would like to notify all those piano students who may read this review as to the wonderful experience attending this camp can be. The camp takes adult piano students at all piano skill levels from beginner to well accomplished. Students stay in shared rooms (2-4 persons) which includes a piano in every room. Attendance is usually 18- 27 persons. The mansion itself is home to approx. 30 pianos. All meals are provided (and are outstanding) as well as piano classes and 4 lessons with concert pianists or university piano professors. Ample time is provided to practice a performance piece for the end of week performance night. Master classes are given on several evenings for those wishing to perform a work in progress piece for the attendees and the camp owner providing a public lesson.
I have found that the attending student group to be extremely supportive to all other students especially to those experiencing performance anxiety. Repeating attendees (from all over the country) have formed lasting friendships among themselves which have endured for years. Eight week long sessions are given throughout the year. In addition there are summer sessions for school aged youth
and also 4 short week sessions for those wishing to try a sampling of the camp. This past January was my 3rd year attending the camp and I will be returning again next year. My experiences at the camp have been truly unforgettable. More information can be obtained at Sonatina.com

Tom is a super nice guy with a great positive attitude and teaching style to match. He has lots of experience both playing and instructing. Two thumbs up!

Tom was absolutely fantastic. He seemed to be genuinely interested in my progress and just as excited as I was about me picking up the piano again - over 20 years since I’d last had lessons - which was an excellent motivator. I may have gone home and practices for a few hours. I look forward to continuing my lessons with him.

This foundation includes calisthenics for the fingers, and learning music theory. Combined these elements make playing the guitar feel more natural, and more fun than site reading out of a Mel Bay book. He always follows up on previous lessons by quizzing you on previous material. Jimmy's a great teacher and I'd recommend him for all ages and all experience levels."
