A teacher of mine once said if you aim for perfection, you get to be pretty darn good. I like to start with a small amount of material that the student can play very well, and use that to refine the basics. By taking a thorough approach (and playing beautiful music), the entire world of piano and music will slowly and surely open up to the pupil.

In my opinion, tone production and rhythm are the major factors that distinguish a great pianist (and make playing the most satisfying), so this is the major focus of our work. I have a very thorough understanding of proper technique and can prescribe exercises that will strengthen one's weaknesses.

I also have a unique background in that I studied jazz improvisation and classical composition, so I understand the inner workings of the music and can improvise in the styles (jazz, classical, baroque, romantic).

Online Piano Teacher

I have been playing piano since I was 6 years old! I love to work with beginner students and give them the tools to be a great piano musician. It's also very energizing for me to work with intermediate students to hone your skills. I focus on proper technique, basic music theory, and a wide variety of repetoire, all while having fun together! I cant wait to help you learn to play.

I typically begin students with a traditional method book, and then move to more classical repetoire, supplementing with pieces or genres that the student has interest in!

Typical lessons will include warm ups (scales, arpeggios, other techniques to warm up the fingers), working on repetoire (may include folk songs, broadway/disney, pop, worship), music theory (note and rest values, key and time signatures, interval recognition, ear training, note recognition, etc.)

Materials that students will need are a piano/keyboard of their own, two lesson/recital books recommended by me, and a theory book.

Brittany works patiently, yet challenges my daughter to perfect her skills. She gives encouragement during the lessons. I usually clean my kitchen during lessons, but I'm able to hear the lesson being taught. I can hear the smile in Brittany's voice when my daughter learns to do something new.

My daughter is 8 and she has been taking piano lesson with Ms Lana since March this year. We are sooo happy with how she is progressing and playing beautifully thanks to Ms Lana's wonderful teaching, patient and caring manner!!! We would definitely recommend to any friends who want to learn piano.

Lana is very nice and professional my daughter was very happy to learn from her:)
Jessica
A few years ago, I moved from Ohio to Florida and was concerned about finding a new piano teacher. To my disappointment, after trying two teachers, I was still left looking for a better one. That's when I had the pleasure of meeting Lana. Lana has reinforced my knowledge of music theory, challenged my technical skills, and most importantly improved my overall ability to play. Through Lana's various teaching techniques and exercises, I have never played better and or had more enthusiasm to keep learning!

"As a teacher, I am whole heartedly committed to nurturing the development of students as they continue with the journey of playing music, and evolve into beautiful musicians. Achieving this requires a present awareness of my students and the music they are drawn to, while also presenting them with music and knowledge from various genres, styles, and times, to broaden their perception of the world we come from and thrive in.  My intention is to provide each individual with the necessary tools to play music passionately, beautifully, brilliantly, and with understanding, and to help students experience the joy of learning and playing music while becoming a well-rounded and well-versed musician. I aim to build a personal relationship with each of my students, and to provide a comfortable, challenging, fun, and vibrant learning experience as well so that all of my students can excel to their fullest potential."  - Sophia ♫

Sophia is a fantastic teacher, and talented musician. She’s both professional and personable, and does a great job of making learning about music fun with lessons that seem perfectly tailored to the individual student. I highly recommend her as a teacher!
Cesar H.
Ms. Sophia is a teacher who is fully engaged during musical instruction and performance. She is a kind and compassionate woman. Any student of hers is expected to give their highest effort in their lessons as well to commit to their out of lesson responsibilities. She is always there to provide students with resources to expand their knowledge. I would highly recommend her private instruction and have been inspired by their past and present achievements for the last 5 years.

"Don’t expect an old fashion teacher with tedious lessons. Randy will have you playing your favorite music in no time! Having always yearned to play piano and have fun with it, I was never successful with instructional piano books or videos. It wasn't until I started taking lessons with Randy that I truly learned to play piano and love it! His vast knowledge of music and easy-going personality assists to create an eagerness to learn more. From the basics to the more complicated elements in piano, he moves at your own pace while also challenging you. Additionally, Randy’s lessons are catered to what you are interested in rather than just go-by-the book lessons. He even has taught me how to play by ear rather than always using sheet music! Randy is simply the best music teacher out there and his lessons are incomparable to others!"
