Taking lessons with Kismat was both fun and educational, as it should be. I was introduced to a variety of different music theory concepts at a pace which suited me. It was never too difficult nor too easy. Of course your progress will be dictated by how much you practice, but Kismat's lessons will give you a clear path to follow. Over all I had a lot of fun learning from him, he's a great teacher and fun guy to jam with.
Kathy
Our son Joe has taken lessons with Kismat for about the last year. They have been the most productive lessons of our sons guitar playing! Kismat found a way to teach our son in a way that appealed to him and applied to his way of learning. I could not be happier with the experience! Thank you so much!
Ingrid
I was Kismat's employer at Guitar Center in Roseville, Minnesota. He was fun to work with and great with students of all ages and skill levels. His energy and positivity always brightened the day and inspired the customers.

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

Online Piano Teacher

I teach beginning and intermediate piano for adults and children. I will teach you to read music and understand the theory that goes behind it. Like teaching voice I start with a classical foundation then build from there, along with scales, arpeggios, chords/structure, etc. Then from there we dive into whatever music you wish to play. Whether you want to work through books like Faber's Piano Adventures, or Alfred's Adult technique books or you just want to learn to play your favorite songs, I will help you navigate how to play!

Fantastic! Scott really can customize exercises and your training to your goals. I was worried I would be doing opera or classical focused training, but he is helping me towards the pop and modern sound I am going for! Recommend 10/10 times!

Scott Mulligan is the best acting coach I could hope for. He took a very special interest in me and my talent. And he put his own reputation on the line in order to recommend me to a talent agency, and I got it! I am now working as a professional actor and I couldn’t have done it without Scott Mulligan.

I really love taken lessons with Scott! learnt a lot already and we only just got started!

"Rina is a fabulous instructor. My son originally contacted Rina after researching piano teachers in our area. She came highly recommended and as a result he gave me a gift of five piano lessons to start. I became hooked; I've been with Rina for well over a year now and thoroughly enjoy learning. Her background in music is broad and she is creative in her approach to teaching.
The experience has been extremely rewarding for me and I look forward to continuing my journey into piano with Rina for many sessions to come."

"My son is six years old and has been taking piano lessons with John for six months. John is a unique and engaging teacher. His extensive knowledge of music and skill at the keyboard were apparent from the beginning. He can easily demonstrate a multitude of songs and then teach them on the spot. My son is excited to play a "whole song," be it Sponge Bob or Beethoven. John's teach-by-numbers technique appeals to my son's love of numbers and patterns yet he is also quickly learning how to read sheet music. John really is skilled at disguising a lesson on technique or theory as a game. He is goofy while at the same time encouraging and supportive of my son. He keeps it light, fun, and skill appropriate. Since he comes to our home, I also appreciate John's focus on the lesson - he arrives and departs in a timely manner. I highly recommend John as a piano teacher."
