Very quickly assessed my skill level and began putting together a curriculum tailored to my skill level. I can't wait until our next lesson!

Wow! I adore Keith. He’s so patient & knowledgeable. The lessons are constructed according to the students pace. I’ve learned more in just 2 lessons with him than I did with weeks of online courses. Would definitely recommend!
Svetlana
I didn’t have any musical background but always wanted to try. And I got so lucky to met Keith. He is very encouraging and scrupulous teacher. We have piano and singing lessons, he offers me to practice songs and melodies that I like but makes sure that I get all the basics right. And the best part is that he loves playing and teaching music, which creates a great atmosphere in the class

Online Piano Teacher

I have been teaching piano to students of all ages and backgrounds for over 10 years. I am comfortable teaching in both classical/traditional and rock/pop/jazz styles, and most often help guide students in one direction or the other based on their skills and goals. Most students choose a learning path on the piano based on how much time they'd like to devote to practicing and if they'd like to learn to read traditional music notation. As a musician and teacher, I don't believe there is one 'correct' style of music learning. Not all talented musicians are conservatory trained and can sight read Bach - although it IS really fun to play Bach. For many students, the goal is simply to enjoy playing the instrument, to learn songs that they love and to have some ability to just sit down and play/improvise!

Within the first few lessons, you can expect to know basic chords and scales and simple reading fundamentals, and within a few months you should expect to have a few songs under ...

Chresten is a fun and informative teacher. The pace is a little faster but challenged me to move forward. Patient and takes the time to go over any questions asked. Very thorough. Thank you.

Really nice class on topics I was aware of but not particularly experienced at... Chresten was fast but not too fast....he explained things over and over, aive us time to sample it, and then gave us pieces to practice on!

Chresten is a great music teacher. He’s been instructing my now 11 year old for 2 years. He is very patient, very flexible in meeting my son’s needs and always very pleasant. I recommend him highly.

Online Piano Teacher

From beginner to advanced. Basic fundamentals of piano and technique. Classical and modern/contemporary styles of playing including chord construction and voicing

I like to teach through a series of books by Nancy and Randall Faber, and Arthur's Adult Piano. Each of these are very different in approach so it really depends what your goals are so I can start you on the right books. This also depends on what you want to get out of your lessons. Do you want to learn pop songs? arrangements? Or do you want to learn classical pieces? I ask you all these questions and more at our first lesson to make sure you and I are both happy with the direction we will take.

I love Francisca’s patience, openness and expertise with vocals and playing the keys. I enjoyed our lively and very down to earth session and learning about breath and vocal health. She gave me tips since I lived in a Nevada which is a very dry place and ways I could improve my vocals in that climate.
I recommend anyone who is looking for a straightforward approach to technique to get lessons from Francisca! She is amazing!
Stacey
What a wonderful experience it was to work with this instructor. Her own experiences and talent far surpasses anything I had expected to experience in an online session.
She has an ability to help me find my voice and I am truly grateful to work with someone with her patience and ability to adapt to my level of learning. She is wonderful for any age group and extremely accommodating to make time for lessons.
I would recommend everyone to give her a try and would guarantee you will not be disappointed!
Jenny
I’ve had such a great time doing virtual lessons with Francisca! It is always so scary and nerve-racking to start with a new instructor, but I immediately felt at ease. Her energy is welcoming and calming, and What I admire most is that she can feel when I’m not emotionally in the song but instead in my head. Thank you for pushing me to break through these vocal cord cobwebs and get these pipes polished!
