Dr. Desmond was a really great instructor! He was very kind and patient with me, he was able to teach me at ability level. He encouraged me to believe in myself and to practice in order to become a better player. He made me feel comfortable and and gave be positive reinforcements when I was doing well as well as positive constructive criticism when I was slacking. I look forward to continuing my courses with Dr. Desmond, I would recommend him to any one interested in learning how to play any instrument.

Private Piano Teacher

As a concert pianist, teaching has always been an integral part in my artistic journey. It is not a separate matter outside from my performance career. I started to teach regularly towards elders ever since I was 8 years old. The communication between me and my students are always natural, no matter who you are, we simply connect through great music together. I will develop your sensibility to music, build your technique to make music, teach you some basic knowledge for music theory, and train your listening skills to captrue every music layers.

Hire Concetta, especially to support a beginning violin player! She is warm, professional and very adept at finding your child's musical strengths and then identifying material to help them access and enjoy the music and instrument. AKA GOOD TIMES for all and excited to continue...as it should be. Thank you Concetta for your expertise and flexibility with schedule. Keri-Ann

Online Piano Teacher

My name is Ghislain, I am 25 years and have a Master in Dance Performance from the Conservatory of music and dance of Paris. I am also French and arrived in September with a full scholarship to study dance at UCLA.

I have studied piano for 10 years at the Conservatoire de Nice (South France), have the experience of teaching private lessons in France and am seeking piano students of every level and age. The past year, I have taught 15 beginners from the age of 5 to 60+ in Paris and had so much fun doing it. I can also teach for adults with a intermediate or advanced level.

With beginners, I tend to put my focus on teaching fundamental notions such as being able to read music notes and understanding rhythm; two elements that are essential to be able to play the piano. And within a few weeks, I can make anyone play piano following a music score !

Learn your favorite songs! I like to start with basic note reading and theory, then playing, and go from there, but I will always adjust according to the student's level and what they want to play. Great with pop music and classical, and basic jazz.

Andy has been teaching my son piano for the last two years. My son always looks forward to going to piano with Andy and he has made so much progress. Andy is very communicative about my son's progress and ideas he has for new goals. Andy is very good at helping my son keep his enthusiasm for piano. He is also sensitive about where my son is at in terms of what he needs to strengthen or if any adjustments need to be made. I highly recommend Andy, not only as a music teacher, but as a person with whom you would want yourself or children to spend time with each week.
