This subject would be geared for intermediate to advanced students. The areas explored would be focused on detailed piano pedagogy, and repetoire from the Baroque, Classical, Romantic and Twentieth century eras. My experience traces a musical lineage back to the 19th century pianist and composer, Franz Liszt. Students must have a piano background of a minimum of 10 years of study.

Michelle was awesome and so glad to have a great piano teacher!
Joe
Michelle does a great job with my 6 year old son. He has been getting weekly lessons for over a year now, and is making a lot of progress. He also enjoys the lessons enough to look forward to them. I was worried he would lose interest, but so far that is not the case. Michelle makes it fun and provides small rewards and lots of encouragement. I wanted to expose my son to the experience and enjoyment that comes with learning to play music, and Michelle has made that possible.

Michelle is very knowledgable and passionate about music. She has a way of explaining that makes confusing concepts easy to understand. Great teacher.

I have been teaching this subject for over 16 years. The main curriculum for beginners is Alfred's Basic Piano Library. There are three beginner levels (beginner, late, adult) and one will be selected after the first meeting. For non-beginning students, the course of study will be developed based on past experience, current abilities, and goals. It is not necessary to know how to read music at the first lesson for beginners. However, learning to read is a part of subsequent lessons. Music is not learned "by ear." A certain amount of theory will be a part of every lesson just as technique and repertoire. Students should come to the first lesson prepared to discuss their background & goals and the plan of their course of study.

I teach by individualization and utilize all teaching techniques/methods that a student will learn best from. If one way of teaching works, there is no need to change; if the student needs another way of learning, then we will evaluate that together, and make changes accordingly.

Thomas is honestly an amazing musician and teacher. He was really patient with me. Despite having to deal with major timezone differences (as I live in Myanmar), he took the time to figure it out. Also, he helped me figure out the stuff it took me months to figure out. He also really knows what he's doing. I learned so much in that hour of practice. 10/10 would recommend him.

"I tried to teach myself piano and I was getting nowhere, so I tried online lessons. I went through three different teachers, all claiming to have a patented method, but all of them left me feeling lost and frustrated. I had almost given up when I found Maria. She is knowledgeable, nurturing, and inspiring. With her by my side, I can realize my dream for she really understands how to impart the beauty of piano."

"Ruth is a fantastic piano teacher. She is very patient and tailors her instruction to the age and capabilities of each child. Our 6yo daughter has been taking lessons with Ruth for a year and loves it, and we've really been amazed at how quickly she has advanced. Ruth is a perfect blend of kindness, patience, and a rigorous and strong training program. We are always impressed with the quality of the performances of Ruth's students (whose ages range from about 5-16) at the annual concert that she organizes. Ruth also teaches adults! If you are in the Princeton/Plainsboro area and looking for piano lessons, we highly recommend Ruth!"

"Both of my sons started to learn piano when they were about 4-year-old. When Cole came to offer them in-person piano lessons (when they were 9-year-old and 5-year-old), it was like opening up a bright new window for our whole family to see the true beauty of music! I personally witnessed the dramatic progress they have made during their three years of study under Cole in terms of not only their technical skills but also their artistic interpretation and expression of the music. We were so sad to move out of Michigan because of my new job. But, he was so kind to connect us with a local pianist in Texas so we can continue to learn piano from a great teacher. During the pandemic when everything became on-line, we realized that we could go back to study piano with Cole remotely through advanced technology. Given our experiences with Cole through both in-person and on-line lessons, I would like to recommend this outstanding teacher to any parents who dream about high-quality piano lessons for their kids!"

"We are extremely pleased with Jonathan's piano instruction! He designed a tailored curriculum for our daughter, and she has been learning a tremendous amount through their lessons. He has a very comprehensive teaching perspective that promotes excellence in musicality, technical skills, and historical context; his high level of academic knowledge and performance experience combine to provide an exceptionally valuable learning opportunity. Our daughter is always delighted with their lessons, and she especially likes how Jonathan thoughtfully interprets the compositions as he plays. She says that his example and ideas help her to become a better musician because they deepen her understanding of the pieces and show her how much is possible when they are performed. On numerous occasions, she has been excited to share techniques, diagrams, and recommendations they covered during their lessons! We have noticed a dramatic increase in her sensitivity to tone and dynamics over the course of their sessions. Our daughter has also described how helpful it is to hear his explanations about the characteristics of different musical periods and the influence they have on specific compositions. Jonathan is a truly dedicated instructor who is willing to go the extra mile for his students. He has selected beautiful music that is well-suited to our daughter's interests and educational needs, and it has been a joy to hear her practicing the pieces with enthusiasm! She is thriving under his instruction because his teaching style is sensitive to the needs of the pupil -- full of new and fascinating material, paced at just the right speed, and always ready to provide encouragement. We give Jonathan's outstanding lessons our very highest recommendation for students of all ages!"
