I can help you play by ear, as well as read music. Really, they both help each other out.

Typically lessons start with a warm-up or exercise, which usually relates to a concept in the songs or pieces we study in the lesson. Lessons can vary based on student goals and approach. For example, an advanced classical lesson might target specific spots in larger pieces, while a jazz/pop lesson might deal with hand positioning for chords and ear training. In a beginning lesson, we focus on either finding patterns on the piano that are used in most chord progressions or melodies, or music literacy, depending on the student's preference.

About Matt

I am a professional singer who has proficiencies in piano, organ, choral directing, musical analysis, and ear training/playing by ear. I currently teach college non-majors, and specialize in teaching adult beginning students.

Was very nice, thank you

Very friendly and knowledgeable of his subjects. He is a total professional.

Just starting lessons with Matt, but he seems very to have great knowledge about how to teach students to grow in their vocal skills. He is very enthusiastic and positive, but honest in his assessment of skills which is important to vocalists who truly WANT to improve their skills. The initial lesson experiences have been really beneficial. Looking forward to continuing lessons with Matt!

I am an experienced music teacher with 10+ years of professional career behind me.

With my piano lessons I can help people who are just starting out on piano. I focus on having a good technique, learning the basics of reading, some different scales and the correct fingering for it and getting used to different musical styles.

I try to make the fundamental exercises more fun rather than boring "exercises". I like to work on technique and theory in a song context not by itself. But after we go over these fundamentals you will be able to learn songs that you like in no time.

I can teach you to read sheet music, form chords, play scales, and perform songs. I really like to work one-on-one with the student and can teach at any pace. I have also taught interest based learning, where the student brings in a song they want to learn and we tackle it, including the theory behind why it sounds good.

About Courtney

I graduated with a degree in Biology and two minors in Chemistry and Music Technology. I have been playing guitar for 15 years and I was lucky enough to work in a music store through college. I learned instrument repair, sales, and music theory through my job and my minor. I also took lessons in mid

I am really enjoying my lessons. Courtney is very competent, kind and easy going! I think we will accomplish exactly what I was looking for. My goal was to receive a musical education and get me on the way to being a musician. The one on one experience makes learning better. The people online teaching doesn't give me what I was looking for.

Fantastic
Jack Stoutland
Extremely helpful during lessons. Designs the lessons to use song in my areas of interest. Lesson critiques are always done in a positive manner. Right now mostly in the area of finger placement. This does make the music easier to play. Her husband Chris also teaches.

I teach beginner through advanced and can also assist students with chord reading, sight singing, piano theory, composing their own music, singing along with themselves while playing the piano, praise music, lead sheets, etc. in addition to traditional piano technique and music. Before I pursued singing full time I was a pianist for 15 years and still professionally play and accompany! Looking forward to working with you!

you are a really nice teacher and you are realllllllly good at singing

Ms. Miya is an incredible piano teacher. She is full of energy, love, and genuine enthusiasm in what she does. In addition to the technical aspects of music, she is talented in encouraging self expression, emotion, and telling a story within playing piano. Miya has both a friendly but professional demeanor and I would strongly recommend her to any student looking for a teacher.
Victoria
Miya is an excellent voice teacher. She really connected with my daughter and inspired her. Miya went above and beyond. She came to the solo ensemble competition and gave my daughter a fantastic pep talk that helped her relax and give a great performance. I was also very impressed with how professional Miya conducted herself. She was younger than some of our previous music instructors but she was fabulous!

My son Chiraag Nadig has been learning classical piano under Mrs Ruth's guidance for close to 3 years now and we have been extremely pleased with her coaching for my son. She is very kind and adapts very well to the needs of the student. She is extremely good at piano and has taught many intricate pieces to Chiraag. She helped him clear Grade 7 of Trinity with distinction. We would surely recommend her as a teacher who is very skilled, adaptable and easy to work with.

I am an adult learner, and Ruth did an excellent job at improving my playing. She brought out the musicality in all the pieces I was learning. Ruth is also friendly and approachable, making the entire learning process very enjoyable. I highly recommend taking lessons with her.

I teach beginning students to read music and play by ear.

About Victor

I believe that any student will practice more if he or she likes the music they are playing. Periodically I will ask a student to give me a name of a piece of music that they would like to learn how to play. I notate it for them, often simplifying the rhythm and chords in Finale NotePad and give it

Is Piano the BEST Instrument to Play? Sound Off!

We came across this interesting article from MyDreamTeacher.com and just had to share!  Here's a taste of the reasons the author thinks the piano is the best instrument out there: 1) It has more notes. The piano keyboard represents every note available on other instruments.  There is no instrument that has a note that the piano does not have.  This reason alone gives a strong case for everyone to play piano. 2) What you hit is what you get. The piano produces the most immediate results …
