Private Classical Piano Teacher

Classical piano is a beautiful art, changing through time. It is a wonder to explore the different worlds of baroque, classical, romantic, and modern music. We will focus on expression and technique, learning the correct style for each period. From beginner Tchaikovsky pieces to sweet Chopin Ballades, it's all at our fingertips.

Curriculum:

Scales- Learning the scales, including arpeggios, broken chords, and correct fingering are all essential to improving technique. And it can be fun too!

Etudes- From Czerny to Chopin to Liszt, all etudes are beneficial, and often required in college auditions as well as competitions. But a lot of them are absolutely gorgeous.

Memorization- A great skill to have is to be able to play from memory. Most recitals, concerts, auditions, festivals, you name it, are all played from memory. It's a fantastic way to improve thinking ability, and self confidence on stage, and your musical abilities.

Ear Training and Sight Reading- ...

About Ekaterina

Originally from St. Petersburg, Russia, I began my musical journey when I was five years old. I am still very passionate about the arts, and strive to learn more every day. I became a student of Marylene Dosse, a phenomenal pianist, teacher, and professor at Penn State, at the age of eight. Since

Great first lesson!

I have had one other piano teacher. I was fresh out of college. Due to relocation, it ended after a few months, and I never pursued piano lessons afterward. Reason? It felt like work. Several years later, I decided to try again. That is when I found Katie through Take Lessons!!!

Katie is a fun, light-hearted, joyous piano teacher. My lessons are 100% pure fun! She challenges me while inspiring me at the same time. She has taught me to play basic and simple pieces with amazing drama and interest. Her expertise shines through in each lesson I take. I contribute my progress to her showing me how to practice. Measures that would take me days at home take me ten minutes with her! Katie is definitely a rare gem. I feel privileged to have such a talented teacher.
Marylene
Ekaterina was among my best students and by far the most gifted of them. Her musicianship and her intelligence are only matched by her charm and her wit.
She would be a rare teacher in her area with a mixing of Russian musical heritage and European teaching.

In spite of her young age she already has had several years of teaching experience and her students have made very good progress.

I would highly recommend her to students of all ages. She will make the best choice of repertoire, build technical skills and develop the musicianship that is necessary for making a difference for a lifetime love of the musical arts.

I have full confidence in her skills. I have love and respect for her and I am sure you will too.

I am an adult beginner violinist. When I first met Stephanie, I had barely touched a violin, but I was determined to learn how to play it. With her help and patience, I am progressing through the Suzuki method as well as doing ear training and music theory. Stephanie is an excellent musician as well as instructor! Her method of teaching keeps the students engaged, encouraged and excited about learning music from all sides of it.
Naomi G.
I strongly recommend Ms. Quinn. She is amazing. I love a teacher who is passionate about what she does and Ms. Quinn has motivated me to love the violin and work harder to improve. She is slightly strict but very patience and kind, always pushing you to work hard and do your best. I learned to play violin a few years ago as a beginner and stopped playing for a few years. I was nervous to begin online violin lessons considering that I learn better face to face. However, Ms. Quinn has done an amazing job at teaching me, I have been taking lessons with her for a year now and have learned so much I didn’t know before which has also grown my love for violin.
Hui F.
Stephanie helped my younger one prepare for competition. She was highly skillful, supportive yet strict. Initially, my girl was a bit nervous to work with Stephanie because of her high reputation. Stephanie was very kind and fun, using metaphors to help my 10-year old understand the music. She not only helped my child overcome barriers to master the music piece but also shared much practical advice for competition. We did not expect this but my 10-year old won the first prize and was invited to perform in Carnegie Hall New York. Highly recommend Stephanie!!!

Bria has been amazing with my 6 year old daughter and now 3 year old son! She’s very patient and caring and knows how to speak their language. My son just started with Bria too and can tell he is excited and understanding. Bria has a great teaching approach with kids I’m grateful for her educating my kids!

Bria is awesome! I never learned piano before, and as an adult I was worried it would be difficult to learn online and pick up, but 6 months in and I’m already able to play a whole piece and gaining understanding of music theory as well. Bria knows how to teach the classic side and new music today. Thanks!!
