About Steven

*2020 Update* Only remote online lessons are currently offered due to the COVID-19 situation. I have been studying and performing music for 25+ years. After majoring in music at College of Dupage in Glen Ellyn IL, I went to step up my level of study at the Percussion Institute of Technology (P.

My son has a great student–teacher relationship. It takes the right teacher to help enjoy learning while challenging him to improve with each lesson and not to short any song. Steve's online sound experience has really impressed us.
Dale Smith
I played an organ years ago ( I am 70 years old) and lost a lot of skills. I now have a digital piano, but I was not satisfied with my progress.

So I signed up for lessons with Steve. I took piano lessons from Steve for about 18 months. I moved about an hour away, so it was not practical to continue with him.

The lessons from Steve were exactly what I was looking for. He figured out my skill level and set up a plan for me. He stressed the fundamentals while teaching a song at the same time. Being able to play a song, even a simple one, was a great reward. Then we progressed to develop more skills and more interesting songs.

Steve is patient, attentive and a good coach. He genuinely loves teaching and finds that “spark” in to build on. I saw this many times as I would listen to him teaching the student before me.

Steve is a great teacher and I strongly recommend him.
Nicole
Steve is a great instructor and took the time to work through any challenges and helped our son grow as a drummer. He has a great virtual setup that makes it sound you are in the studio with him.

My lesson plans are customized for each student to address their unique needs and goals. In addition to playing the songs you want to play, you'll gain a strong foundation in music theory, note reading, ear training, and much more. For interested students, I also assist in audition and performance preparation. I want my students to have fun while learning music!

About Kathryn

I have a Bachelor's degree in music, specifically voice. I've studied both voice and piano for over 12 years, and have been performing for over a decade in a variety of settings. As a voice teacher, I believe that every voice is unique. My students establish a foundation of healthy singing techniq

I have been seeing Kathryn for vocal training for the past 9 months and could not be more happy with my lessons. It is easy to tell that Kathryn cares deeply about the growth of her students. Not only is she a talented teacher/musician, her warm personality creates a safe, playful atmosphere. Highly recommend!

Hi, my name is Tanya and I have been teaching piano lessons since I was just 16 years old! What started as a fun activity during my childhood, turned into a lifelong passion.
I love teaching kids of all ages and figuring out different ways to make the lessons fun and enjoyable.
I was lucky enough to grow up with a mother who taught violin lessons all of her life. Watching her teach has been very educational and inspiring.
So excited to work with you or your kids!

This is a great introduction for adults who wish to learn some music, music students who want basic keyboard skills, or younger children beginning their first instrument.

Online Piano Teacher

Professor of piano at South Dakota State University since 2001. Over 40 years private teaching experience. Student of Frances Clark and Louise Goss. Published composer with Carl Fischer.

I use standard materials for beginners, and try to let students continue with their current materials. I focus on classical repertoire and some jazz. My goal is to foster musical growth and a love of the piano through well rounded lesson assignments that include both challenging and fun pieces.

About John

I teach piano at all levels, and music fundamentals/theory. My students enjoy working with me because, even though we work hard and accomplish a lot at each lesson, we do so with a sense of fun and adventure. I take a balanced approach to lesson assignments, always considering suggestions from the

My daughter has been learning with Dr. Walker for 2 years and 8 months. Under Dr. Walker's instruction my daughter has made significant progresses and has developed great interests in music. It's really our fortunate to have Dr. Walker as my daughter's teacher in her key ages of learning piano playing.

If you are looking for a piano teacher for you or your kids, please consider Dr. Walker seriously. Dr. Walker is a perfect piano teacher in all aspects.

Dr. Walker is good at teaching kids in a way that is adaptive to kid's different personality so that his teaching is easy for kids to understand and kids likes the lessons as well.

In addition, Dr. Walker teaches much more than piano playing technique itself. With his teaching, the student will also learn musical knowledge such as music theory, the development of classical music, the composers and their master pieces, and so on. I will not elaborate here.

And Dr. Walker always encourages his student while the student is struggling with technical difficulties or when the kids is not that careful. Special thanks to Dr. Walker for his patience and encouragement and I think this has protected my daughter's interests in learning piano and music.

You won't regret having Dr. Walker as your piano teacher.
Patty
After our son's first lesson with Dr. Walker two years ago, he was excited to play the piano again. Dr. Walker brought the 'spark' back to a teenager who was beginning to lose interest in playing. Dr. Walker provides incredible background knowledge into various piano pieces, has great patience, and encourages his students. He shares a love of music that is interesting, which is so important for teenagers. He is described by our son as someone who is upbeat and always in a good mood. We are very fortunate to have him as our son's teacher.
Rong Fan
My daughter (11 years old) has been learning piano with Dr. John W. for more than two years. He is the best teacher that I can imagine. My daughter has been enjoying his teaching very much. We are very sorry that my daughter can not continue her study with Dr. W. soon, because he is moving to another country and can not do an in-home teach.

Based on the two years’ experience, I would recommend Dr. Walker without any reservation. He has a rich experience in teaching youth. His professionalism impresses me the most. He uses the words/expressions that my daughter can understand, even though English is not my daughter's first language. His instructions are clear, specific, and easy to follow. He knows how to encourage and inspire my daughter. That is probably the main reason that my daughter has changed her dream to be a pianist.

Meanwhile, Dr. Walker is a very patient, nice, decent, and friendly person. If you are looking for a piano teacher, you do not want to miss Dr. Walker.

We can not express how grateful we are to have Fawn for our daughters coach! She is sounding fantastic on both piano and voice! Thanks Fawn!

Here is the BEST Vocal coach ever. Allie has improved so much working with Fawn and her confidence is soaring. She tried out for a small part on a theatrical play and got one of the lead roles. Thank you Fawn, we are eternally grateful!
Gregory King
A most excellent piano teacher. Fun, patient, talented, a great communicator with a profound impact on my improvement. Never though online lessons would work, but they do and Fawn is fantastic!
Forena
When I began my Masters in Music, the university told me to find someone that I wanted to work with one on one. I decided to approach Fawn because of her specialty in improv, Jazz, her knowledge of a variety of styles and her experience as a vocalist. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience. She helped me to feel confident approaching Jazz and I will always be grateful. Fawn is brilliant! I enjoy every lesson and continue to improve and lean new skills from her! Highly recommend Fawn

What is a Piano Fake Book?

You walk into your sheet music store and start browsing. You look at the method books, technique books, repertoire… and then your eyes see something else. You pick it up and see it is called a "fake book." An odd name for a real book. You open it up and see that it contains music. So what exactly is it? A piano fake book allows you to read and play music on your piano. But unlike your typical books, which contain the score as written by the composer or arranger, a fake book is more of a …
