Private Piano Teacher

We begin with exercises to develop technique and train for agility, musicality and music theory. Classical music is used but not exclusively as we explore the many different genres of music! Ear training is also offered so that the student may be able to play by ear as well as reading music.

About Tim

My wife and I have been teaching piano lessons in the Kansas City area for more than 20 years. We have studios in our home; she teaches upstairs and I teach downstairs! I am currently accepting new students and welcome the opportunity to see them grow and experience the joy of piano playing. W

Tim is a wonderful instructor. He genuinely loves music, and it comes through during lessons. He has a positive teaching style. He strives to meet my kids where there at and teaches to their interests, but also manages to get technique and theory in. Tim is a treasure!

My son is really enjoying his piano lessons. He is learning so much. She is also great about giving him “homework” to work on and practice between lessons. She is very patient with him and is a great teacher. I can’t believe how much he has learned already.
Ashley
Dana is a terrific instructor for our three boys and is concentrating on sight reading as well as working toward performances. We enjoy working with her a great deal and she's strong with both early and advanced learners.

Private Piano Teacher

Are you a beginner piano player interested in learning how to play your favorite songs? Do you like how the piano sounds and want to learn what each note is or how to take control of the instrument? Are you a singer looking to grow with your vocal exercises and learn how to play scales?

I learned how to play piano 4 years ago when I started teaching music lesson. When I first started I was teaching voice, so I had to learn scales and chords to be able to warm up and accompany the students I was working with. Pretty soon I was playing piano with my students for their recitals, and quickly I learned how to utilize the piano either for performance or practice!

Whether you are planning on leading with it, using it as accompaniment to someone else/yourself, or just want to learn for fun as a hobby, I can teach you all you need to know for your beginner piano studies! If you have any questions, please message me!

About Mikala

Want to learn how to play or sing your favorite song? Are you interested in learning how to write your own songs? Since the start of my teaching career 4 years ago, my lessons have expanded to include guitar, ukulele, bass, piano, drums, singing, and even songwriting! I'm eager to help you find

Mikala has been providing lessons for my son Ben, and she has been amazing!! I love that she is not limited at all in her abilities to cross over her knowledge as a vocalist, piano player, percussion and strings! And her perspective as a professional musician is incredible! She is so energetic, my son is always engaged! Thank you Miki!!

Mikala is one of the most professional, consistent, and talented teachers I have ever met! Her musicianship is unmatched and that means a lot when giving lessons!

Online Piano Teacher

Hi! I was born and raised in Soviet Union, where I studied piano since I was 5 years old. I got my piano education in Soviet Union. I love teaching, and have a extensive experience (over 20 years) teaching music, piano and singing. I can conduct lessons in English, Russian or Spanish. I teach classical piano, pop music, singing and composition. In piano education, I place great importance on cultivating passion for learning and music in my students, as learning with passion is the key to excellence.

About Katya

Katya is a wery good teacher
Veronica
Katya has been giving online lessons to my two children, ages 14 and 12, for the past 6 months. Before this, the children received in person lessons from Katya for 3 years. Katya is an excellent pianist and piano tutor. She is patient and kind. She always looks for ways to motivate the different skill levels. She is very talented and sparks in children the love for learning and becoming avid at playing piano. Katya also gave piano lessons to other children from the same school my children attended and they all loved the piano lessons with Katya. I highly recommend Katya as a knowledgeable and loving piano instructor.

Online Piano Teacher

Taking into account the countless stories I have heard of people lamenting piano lessons until they grew to resent the instrument, I am here to offset all that with fun lessons that are just as educational. In fact, students appear to learn more quickly when they are having a good time. I promise to introduce you to the piano in a way that sticks and enriches your life for years to come.

About Chaetan

Having played music for as long as I can remember (my father is an accomplished Jazz and Soul drummer), music has always been a key ingredient in my life. From playing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme on the drum set as a toddler, I have gone on to learn electric/classical/lap steel guitar, e

Great Beginner Guitar Lessons

I look forward to my weekly guitar lessons with Chaetan because he is a very knowledgeable, relaxed, and patient teacher. He tailors my lessons to meet my personal goals (learning those pinnacle acoustic songs). But as an exceptional instructor, he also guides me to meet goals he has for me as a student, such as learning to build chords on my own. The quality of his instruction has already increased my progress on the instrument. Overall, his talent and interest in music motivate me to practice so I am fortunate to have found Chaetan as my guitar teacher.

Excellent and Unique Teacher

Chaetan is a very friendly instructor who tailors his lessons to meet both the experience level and type of music a student is interested in. Chaetan has a lot of energy and makes the lessons fun. He appears to know every aspect of what he is teaching as well as plays other instruments. My daughter and I are both very happy with Chaetan.

"Dena is a wonderful teacher. My daughter who is now eight has been taking piano lessons for over a year. In that time my daughter can not only read and play, but now has a real appreciation for instrumental music. Dena is a very patient and thorough in communicating both theory and technic to children.
It is not difficult to see that her education and professional experience enable her to effectively teach music to young minds. She is an exceptional teacher!!"

"Ivan was the piano teacher for my 3 boys ages 14, 12 and 7 years old for about 2 years. Before Ivan, my kids lost interest in learning and practicing piano. Ivan was able to engage their interest and make them love practicing. He encouraged them to pick music from famous songs or movies which helped to attract their attention. My kids looked at him as a role model. It was a pleasure having him as their piano teacher. He is a great one. It was a big loss for us when he moved out of the state. He is highly recommended."

"Lana is an amazing piano teacher! She started teaching our kids when they were very young until they graduated from eighth grade. They are in high school now and no longer take lessons, but they still sit down at the piano to play their repertoire and some new songs. Lana is a professional; she was always prompt for lessons and was very flexible as the kids became busier with school activities and sports. This was important because there never was a point where my kids would have to choose between sports and piano. We loved Lana's patience with the kids, her positive attitude and passion for music and are most grateful for all the years she graced our home to teach our kids a love for piano and music. Lana pushed the kids to perform at higher levels each year. It's still fun to see people's jaws drop when my hockey-playing son sits down at a piano and plays an amazingly difficult piece. Thank you, Lana!"
