Ms. Robin comes highly recommended by my daughter and I. She made the lessons "fun" for an 9 year old! She also let my daughter select her own songs which I thought was a plus ... students are much more engaged if they are singing something they like to sing. Ms. Robin is an enthusiastic teacher and motivates her students to do their best. She also uses vocalization exercises to encourage a better "range" before singing an actual song. My daughter always looked forward to going to Ms. Robin's lesson and I stayed for each lesson and was quite pleased with my daughter's progress.

Robin has been an excellent fit for my daughter(age 15). She has been very flexible with my daughter's rehearsal schedule and seems genuinely interested in helping her improve and achieve her goals. My daughter feels comfortable working with Robin and looks forward to her lessons. She is excited about continuing lessons and improving her vocal techniques and skill level.

excellent teacher

Maybe a bit premature after only one lesson, but after speaking with Robin at length over the phone, and being present during my son's first lesson, I must say I'm very impressed with her as my son's instructor. She has a vast portfolio of experience in a wide range of music, highly educated, extremely knowledgeable, and good at instruction. I'm especially excited that she incorporates music theory into the lessons. Highly recommended!
Sarah B. Akron, OH

I use the Faber method for beginners and supplement with plenty of fun activities and solos.

About Sarah

These are not your grandma's piano lessons! Times have changed and so has teaching. Young students will be introduced to the piano, music and rhythm with many different activities. Older students will be encouraged to set goals and challenge themselves, with an emphasis on learning to play independently. It's important for students of all ages to be playing music they're interested in. I teach all styles, including pop music, movie music, classical music and basic jazz. I'm also offering Wunderkeys lessons. These are piano lessons specifically geared towards preschoolers age 3-5. They learn music, math and more. To learn more about the Wunderkeys program, visit wunderkeys.com Piano lessons are held in my home on my Kawaii piano. I teach most evenings and on Saturdays and am ...

Graham H. Akron, OH

You can play what you can hear. I work on developing the student's mental concept of how a particular piece of music might sound. This solid musical thinking translates into a reliable technique. Technique should come naturally and should not be overly thought, but I will explain what seems to work for me and analyze the student's playing.

Beginning students start with a method such as the well-known 'Piano Adventures'. Lessons should include some study of theory. More advanced students will work on progressively more demanding literature.

My adult students say I am insightful.

Cindy is an amazing piano instructor!

She is not only a great musician, but an equally great teacher. She was so patient with me as a struggled with reading notes, losing my place, and being motivated to practice. She was encouraging in her words, but also pushed me to improve, which I did in a surprisingly short time. I tribute my learning to her teaching methods and deep desire for the success of every student. She is both personable and helpful- patient and yet challenging. She truly loves her students, and cares that they do well.

I whole-heartedly recommend this instructor to aspiring pianists of any age or skill level.
Maurice P. Canton, OH

I have been teaching voice for about 3 years. The lessons will be designed around your interests, with standard repertoire incorporated into your learning to develop a well rounded pianist with proper technique and style. I believe that music is designed for all people regardless of learning level. I accept all students at any level of knowledge of music. It is not about what you know now but the things you learn and take with you through the rest of your life.

About Maurice

I am a senior music education student at Malone University. My primary instruments are voice and trumpet, with a secondary of piano. I also have been teaching guitar for several years. I have experience playing around the U.S and also internationally on various occasions but I am now working to spread the love of music to the next generation and also those who always wanted to just learn more about playing or singing.

Kim W. Cuyahoga Falls, OH

I teach beginner and intermediate students. I think playing piano should be fun so we work from lesson books but we also find music that the student enjoys playing.
