From age seven, I have performed piano at concerts and piano competitions, playing solo, in small groups or with orchestra. Studying piano performance at the School for Talented Children for eleven years and later at music conservatory, I was groomed to perform piano on stage. In short, I have the personal experience that I apply to teaching piano performance. Specifically, I teach my students how to memorize music pieces, how to develop proper phrasing and how to convey emotion and beauty of a particular piece to the audience. I also help students who want to obtain certificates from Associated Board of Royal School of Music (ABRSM) or Trinity College London (TCL) to excel in these examinations.

About Ruth

I have played piano since I was six years old, when my parents enrolled me in my first music classes. I continued my music education while going to elementary, middle, and high school. Ultimately, I graduated with a Master's Degree in Music from Butler University, located in Indianapolis, Indiana

Excellent job and I am looking forward to my son having more lessons
Adeline
We went with online piano lessons at the moment due to COVID, but I was nervous about the format as the lessons are for my five-year-old daughter, so I was concerned the additional technology would be an impediment. Dr. Merkel was wonderful. He was friendly and encouraging to my daughter, ensuring she knew she could ask any questions she might have at any point. He absolutely made the technology work for us, and my daughter learned more than I would have thought possible in 30 minutes. She is counting down to her next lesson!

Hi, my name is Liam, and I am excited to help you or your child learn how to play the drums.

My 20+ years of performing across the country taught me how to wow audiences from 10 to 10,000. But teaching has taught me compassion, and how to break big, complicated things down into bite size pieces.

I’m most interested in students learning to play music they love, and learning the techniques and the rudiments to help them get there along the way.

Playing music is fun, and learning it should be, too.

About Liam

Hi, I'm Liam. My story starts two decades ago with a snare drum and a private teacher, the summer before I was old enough to try out for school band. I practiced all summer so I'd be ready. When tryouts rolled around, I conquered. Yes! By the end of the year, we learned a Beatles song. That was
