Raycurt is not only knowledgeable, he is extremely skilled. He is thorough and maximizes time by providing superb instruction. My son looks forward to attending his classes; and I am a parent who is beyond pleased with Raycurt’s level of expertise.
Ben E.
This was a really unfortunate and wasted experience. Raycurt was wildly unprepared to teach. He brought a broken metronome and almost no sheet music/lesson plan. I had spoken both to the sales rep and Raycurt himself prior to the lesson and he was still fully unprepared.

I also explained my level of experience and was assured Raycurt was qualified to teach at the level I needed, but he came off as less knowledgable than me, which was particularly disappointing.

Worst of all, after multiple hours of speaking on the phone, I couldn't get my money back for this lesson.

I'd strongly recommend not using takelessons at all, they've put a horrible taste in my mouth for their entire service.

Rachel was such a pleasure to work with.
Very knowledgeable and patient. Definitely a great teacher and would recommend her to everyone. It was very easy to work with her. Our girls loved learning from her and always looked forward to class days with her.

Rachel is an amazing, encouraging, and patient piano teacher. As an adult picking up piano for the first time it was a bit intimidating to me, but she makes it fun and allows you to go at your own pace. You can definitely tell she has a passion for music and it comes across in the way in which she teaches.

Rachel was wonderful with our son! (4 & 7)

My first lesson with Schroeder was a marvelous experience. Amazing enthusiasm he brings to the table. I recommend him to anyone who is beginning or is seeking to move up on the instrument. Can't wait for the next lesson.

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 as a teacher is to share the love for music I have with my students. I use different methods for teaching as I find every student is different. I am skilled in but not limited to started beginner students. I always incorporate music theory and music history into lessons. There's room for parents to sit down and relax during lesson time as well.
Students will be required to purchase their first books.

About Lindsey

I began my musical journey at the age of 4, when I was enrolled in piano lessons. At the age of 10 I became interested in sharing my love for piano with others. So I apprenticed myself to Ruth Snowman, my piano teacher and assisted with group classes, recitals, and festivals. Once older I became

I teach piano both as a starting to other instruments and as a goal in and of itself. My method is to teach as much as I can in the learning style of the student. I have taught from every available piano method book out there. The goal is not to get through each book as quick as we can. The goal is to become a student who enjoys making music. The student and I work as much as we can during the lesson time on the understanding of the songs, method, style, and theory of music. Therefore, if a someone does not have much time for practice during a week, as happens for time to time, they will still learn and progress.

About Shae

I am an music instructor with 30 years of experience. I have a Bachelor's degree in Sacred Music with a major in Voice. I have been playing piano for 38 years with having been an accompanist for choirs and soloists and a pianist at weddings and churches. I am a believer that anyone can learn pia

My 2 girls started with Shae when they were 5 years old and both enjoyed their lessons. Shae is patience and good with kids. Even though we don't have the best schedule, the girls liked her so much I couldn't switch to a different teacher even though it could have saved me a few dollars too.

Shae is a great teacher, she is very patient, and my son enjoys his lessons. We have been with Shae for several years, and it has been fun watching my son's ability grow during that time.

"My daughter is just beginning her third year of taking piano lessons with Brad, which has been great. She has provided nothing but positive feedback regarding her experience with him. You can tell that he is very patient and comfortable working with children. I was terrified of my piano teacher as a child, which really prevented me from ever loving it. Thankfully, my daughter's experience with Brad is not like that. She enjoys her lessons and always is in a good mood when finished. Brad does a good job of understanding her capabilities and progresses accordingly. As a result, my daughter never gets frustrated or discouraged, which is important for a 10 year old.
Another fantastic aspect of working with Brad is his flexibility. My daughter is involved in other activities which changes her availability times for piano lessons. Brad is very understanding, and goes above and beyond to try and accommodate our changing schedules throughout the year. We've always been able to find a day and time that works for both of us. This is really important for a busy family such as ours. I'm looking forward to my other daughter beginning piano lessons with Brad in the next couple of years once she is old enough."

I’m very grateful for her as a teacher because she pushes me to do the best I can and encourages me to push myself towards success."
