Private Piano Teacher

My lessons are unique in that I make studying piano enjoyable and beginners start to feel the love of music, and want to succeed. I get beginners {adults or children playing pieces very quickly. Sight-reading and theory are incorporated into beginning lessons {students do not realize they are learning these}. Later theory is taught as a separate part of the lesson. In the 15 years I have taught, most beginning students are playing at a 3rd year level at the end of one year. Intermediate and advanced students learn history of the composers works they are playing, and how the composes' lives affect the interpretation. I teach the technique need for a piece. I do not have my students practicing scales and other rote exercises. My students learn all the technique need as part of the pieces they are working on.

About Keith

I was a combined piano performance and theory major at Texas Christian University. I was fortunate to have studied with some of the best teachers in the world, including Mme. Lili Kraus, Miklos Ivanich and Dr. Stephen Swedish. After college I taught fro several years to mostly grade and middle scho

Private Piano Teacher

While teaching classical piano, I always try to incorporate the material that students like the most: Holiday songs, Broadway melodies and favorite cartoon songs. All of this definitely adds to the enjoyment of learning how to play. Besides having two recitals a year, I encourage students to play in front of their peers at school, to always play for their families and to participate in various competitions and festivals around the St.Louis area.

About Daniela

Hi ! My name is Daniela and I can't wait to meet you! I have been teaching piano and theory since 1994 and have loved helping my students discover the beautiful world of music. Seeing my students grow into well rounded and educated people that love art, are able to recognize different styles

Daniela is wonderful and our lessons are always fun. She lets me play pieces that I enjoy plus introduces me to new music that she believes I will also enjoy. She allows me to play freely but will correct my mistakes (wrong fingering :). But this only make me a better player and learning a new piece easier. As an adult learner I cannot say enough good things about her and her style. I really enjoy my lessons with her and I highly recommend her.

Daniela is obviously a skilled piano teacher. She connects well with my 8 year old son, and I am continually surprised by all of the details that she is able to perceive over skype- every finger placement, gesture, etc. She is careful, thorough, and kind. We are thankful to have found her.

I try to make the lessons as fun and educational as possible. I split my lessons into three parts. Theory , Technique , and songs. I use my own curriculum that I have created after 20 years of research and proven teaching. All students are different so I create individual lesson plans for each student. I teach beginners and also intermediate and advanced blues, jazz, and pop. I would love to be your teacher!

About Eric

FAWN is amazing!! she noticed things about me that no other instructor noticed before. She is extremely attentive to the small details that other instructors aren't. would highly recommend!!

The best of the best
Fawn is my daughters voice and piano coach and I could not be any happier with the instant results. We have tried many other voice coaches and there was only steady improvement. After One session with Fawn my daughter booked a voice over national job. She was able to apply all the tools Fawn showed her and it paid off.
As for the piano classes, after 6 months of piano at a traditional school she still had not learned the notes or much of anything, after 2 classes with Fawn she is now reading notes and playing songs off the book and she couldn't be happier.
I highly recommend Fawn

Fawn is very professional, experienced, and a lot of fun to work with. She's taught all skill levels, so she knows how to control the pace. I suck at all this so she's had to apply music theory on me to go along with the hands on teaching. I would definitely recommend choosing Fawn as a teacher!

"Lena is a great teacher! She is very patient while teaching. She's also very attentive to the student and will correct you if need be. I am definitely not a professional piano player, and more a beginner; she will go at your pace. I'm also really glad she asked me to bring music that I personally wanted to play, because I've been wanting to play this certain piece since forever but I've never had the will to learn it myself! She is a definitely a teacher that I would recommend to others."

What inspired you to play piano? Maybe your parents made you take piano lessons as a child, and you quickly discovered how fun and rewarding it was to play your favorite songs. Maybe you can pinpoint that one classical piece that made you first realize how music can affect your emotions and mood.
