Private Piano Teacher

I have 12 years of experience playing the piano. My focus is primarily classical and sacred music. I have been teaching piano since 2016 and have loved every minute of it. I have also played for many special events (weddings/funerals/church worship team). My music instructor studied under interns of Juilliard School and Curtis Institute. From energetic kindergarteners with a list of favorite songs to learn to school-age students with an interest in the arts, my music students have found the piano to be a great creative outlet.

About Abigail

In my free time, I enjoy playing in my family's music band and learning new creative skills, such as sewing, crocheting, trying new recipes in the kitchen (including gourmet cookies), and am currently studying horticulture.

Private Piano Teacher

We are a husband and wife piano teaching team that enjoy seeing children grow as they expand their musical skill set. We are firm believers of learning the fundamentals. We teach all ages and levels, and want our students to be having fun!

And if your piano needs a tuning, we do that too!

It is great getting a student to think and analyze the task at hand. It might seem too hard at first, but I will walk the student through the process of figuring out how to play a piece. Learning music gives you a lot of skills applicable to everyday life.

I am a professional pianist who primarily performs but also loves to share the gift of music through teaching. My specialty is jazz but I play most other genres and am a firm believer of learning the fundamentals. Iteach all ages and levels, and want my students to be having fun! And if your pia

Hello and welcome! I am a classically trained pianist with 20+ years of private lesson teaching under my belt. As a mom of three, I understand the learning needs of children and develop lesson plans that reflect optimal learning for their style. My teaching philosophy focuses on developing the whole musical individual, forming relationships, and earning trust--that's when real learning can occur. I am a firm believer in fun and try to incorporate games and other fun learning activities into lessons. Please reach out and let's make some music!

Our family can't say enough about Melissa! WONDERFUL! She is a gift to piano students. My son has taken lessons with her for almost a decade now, and has truly developed as a musician due to her teaching skills. She works with students (at their level) to develop their confidence and joy in music. Not only is she a top-rate teacher and musician, she is an absolute delight to work with! She blends music professionalism with care and flexibility for students, which is a rare blend. Melissa has our highest recommendation!
Steve
As a retired senior who likes music, I knew nothing at all about it, I was referred to Melissa when I suddenly wanted to know more. Much to my surprise, after 1 and 1/2 years I'm actually playing the piano...and it sounds pretty good. I highly recommend Melissa. She's patient, kind, affirming, and knows just when to push me to try more without undermining my self confidence. And she makes it fun!
Margaret
Melissa is a wonderful tutor! I am an older student and really appreciate her skill and patience in helping me as I relearn how to play the piano. I highly recommend Melissa as a piano teacher/tutor to young and old alike!

Online Piano Teacher

Really good music teachers who work well with students of various temperaments and abilities are difficult to come by. My goal is to instill a sense of music appreciation, while at the same time teaching students about the technical aspects of music. I feel qualified to teach music and to do so in a way that each student feels special, valued and encouraged. With my real world experience and unique style of teaching I believe I am an ideal musician to study with.

About Conrad

I was introduced to music early on by my parents, particularly my father who is a respectful painter. Being classically trained on the piano I started playing and writing songs at the tender age of seven. My early piano influences are Mozart, Beethoven and Gershwin amongst others. Growing up, I bec

Online Piano Teacher

The philosophy of my teaching is to help students to build strong technical foundations while encouraging them to gain deep satisfaction from the music that they play or study. I also enjoy sharing with students the musical history and context around the music that they perform, as it helps them become part of a community and tradition bigger than themselves. I always adapt the teaching methods depending on students and understand what they need.

About Jing

Hi there! I'm a composer and pianist who is excited to share my musical knowledge (and/or my native Chinese language) with students. Whenever working with students, I work with them to find their passions and help them build up the skills and technique they will need to accomplish their dreams. My
