Our lessons will be laid-back, encouraging, and productive. We will work together to help you achieve your goals and gain a well-rounded music education, regardless of age or musical background. Students who study piano with me will not only learn songs they love to play, but will learn proper technique, sight-reading, music theory, and ear training. I tailor each lesson based on the musical interests and goals of the student. I aim to give the students a solid foundation in technique and theory in order to help the student feel comfortable at the piano and to make progress at a steady rate.

About Summer
I believe that the most important aspect of teaching music is creating an environment that is positive and individualized for each student while simultaneously providing the necessary tools to learn music both successfully and confidently, such as theory, technique, sight-reading, and ear training.

I have 9 years of experience teaching piano, theory, and guitar to students of all ages and musical background, including students with special needs.

Above all, our lessons will be about learning music that interests you and reaching your musical goals. Curriculum for our lessons will draw from variety of methods and aspects of music education. These include music theory, ear training, sight-reading, body mapping, technique, improvisation skills, arranging, and composition.

Students who are interested in doing so will have the opport
unity to perform at spring and winter recitals.

I am currently an active performer and music educator in New York City. I graduated with honors from Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA with degrees in Performance and Audio Engineering, where I studied with extraordinary musicians and teachers such as Ray Santisi, Jennifer Elowsky-Fox, Doug Johnson, Yakov Gubanov, Tibor Putszai and Suzanna Sifter.

Please note that my exact availability for in-home lessons is dependent on your location.

Feel free to send me a message if you have any questions about lessons or scheduling!

Kevin is clearly a virtuoso player, with a pleasant, relaxed demeanor, clear teaching style, and the best sense of humor. That really takes any edge off any nervousness.

Albuquerque, NM
View Full Profile

My piano students study classical, Judeo - Christian, and certain ethnic styles. The December recital will feature two Beethoven Sonatas, a Bach Prelude and Minuet, "Hava Nagilah", and the three Latin favorites "La Cumparsita", "Miami Beach Rhumba", and "Tico Tico".

About Steven
I love to learn music! So do my students.

After childhood lessons, and BA and MA degrees from Minnesota and Iowa, I worked for private conservatories in Los Angeles, while teaching and playing for church events and celebrations. In that real-world school, I learned the music that the world loves.

I use that knowledge to fire my students' imaginations. If Bach or Mozart motivates them, we set goals to learn Bach's Toccata in D minor or Mozart's Turkish Rondo after two years of dedicated practice. These are realistic goals!
Maybe you would like to study Easter hymns for church, as one student did recently. Perhaps you would like to tame Beethoven's Tempest in front of sixty people at a nice recital hall.

*** Lesson Details ***
All my students can expect an experience focused on their musical goal
s, with lesson plans geared to twenty minutes of daily practice. Set the bar as high as you want! My students all choose to have a lesson every week under the recurring lesson plan, to make quick progress.
My studio has a big grand, and a digital piano. The neighborhood is quiet. Come with confidence, to a studio licensed in Albuquerque for twenty years.
After three months, a busy eight-year old beginner could have an easy rendition of "Ode To Joy" or "When The Saints Come Marching In" to perform for loved ones.
My students study technique, rhythm, fingering, expression and general musicianship. All this, while enjoying great musical selections.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The studio lessons are taught in a living room studio exclusively used for piano lessons including a Steinway piano. No pets. Parking in the right side of the driveway.

*** Specialties ***
Mostly classical, with occasional jazz, contemporary Christian, and popular. I mostly teach from notes, though occasionally with lead sheets and improvisation. Faber and Faber, Keys for the Kingdom, and Burnam methods are preferred until the student can play the composer's original notes. Then, their recital works tend to come from such as Bach, Beethoven, Clementi, Debussy, and Chopin.

An excellent, intuitive teacher

Mr. Steve is an outstanding teacher whom I would recommend without reservation. He works at the pace of each of my children and they are eager to work for him too. My son bores quickly, but Steve challenges him with encouragement and speed. My daughter is slower to catch on and he accommodates her speed with equal talent. He is creative in his teaching methods and also in his approach to advising more practice or encouraging practice methods. I hesitate to write this review because I don't want to share the gem we have found in Steve. He is kind, patient, encouraging, excited about the music and the kid's efforts, witty, professional and accommodating. 5 stars.

An excellent patient, teacher with a lot to offer

I have been seeing Steven for several weeks, and I find his manner to be informative and supportive. He is fond of what he does, and it shows. He's interested in students that prefer challenges, and that want to improve themselves. At the same time he understands that growth is a controlled practice.

I believe he is a great teacher with an interest in teaching his students.

To paraphrase Johann Sebastian Bach: "Playing the piano is easy...all you have to do is play the right notes...." Seriously, whether you're just beginning, or whether you've been studying piano for years, playing the piano is a lot more fun and rewarding than playing Pokémon GO...and it will keep you out of trouble and out of other peoples' backyards.

About Lawrence
Lawrence loves to teach music, especially piano, organ and voice. He began studying the piano at age 5; by age 12 he was studying the pipe organ and performing at church services in his hometown of Springfield, Illinois.

A graduate of the Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan and the University of Massachusetts in Boston, he has continued his private musical studies throughout his adult life with illustrious faculty members from the Cornell College School of Music and the Winthrop University Conservatory of Music.

Presently, he teaches private music lessons in Rio Rancho and Albuquerque and is the Director of Music & Liturgy at Church of the Incarnation in Rio Rancho. He is a member of the American Guild of Organists.

My lessons include proper posture, basic technique, theory, ear training exercises, a study of the classics along with hymns, if so desired. I typically use the Faber Piano Method books as a basis of each lesson at least for the beginning. I love teaching and helping students become accomplished musicians.

New Offering --- WunderKeys Preschool Piano -- specifically designed for the very young student (ages 4-6). There will be an additional $5/lesson charge for this lesson option. This is an excellent way to introduce the very young to the piano.

About Melanie
I have a wonderful family (husband and 3 children) with whom I love spending time. I love to sing and play the piano, and I believe the ability to play and create music is a gift from God. No matter what we are doing in life (going to school, playing an instrument, working) we are to be doing it to His glory!

I love teaching piano and helping students grow musically. I am thankful for the opportunity that I have had to teach over the past 20 years. One of my favorite quotes is from Bach: "I play the notes as written, but it is God who makes the music."

Lana has proven to be a wonderful teacher over the past couple of months since I have been using her. I have a demanding sales job in Florida that requires me to travel by car all of the time. Basically living out of hotel rooms a couple months out of the year, I have not been able to continue my hobbies so easily especially playing the piano. After having a dinner conversation with a co-worker, he mentioned to me that I take online piano classes. He knew of Lana through a relative that recently had a recital that he attended and was impressed with their progress. Sounded like a great idea. I reached out to Lana, put the keyboard in the trunk of the car, and the rest was history! I was a little hesitant of taking online instruction at first but it really has allowed me to continue my hobbies on the road and greater flexibility when I am home as well. The quality of the video streaming works well and I really enjoy the instruction that Lana has provided for me. She seemed to understand my pace of learning and had me fine tuning some technical issues that I was having. I am extremely satisfied with her services and look forward to our instructional sessions. I would definitely recommend her to anyone interested in taking piano lessons online or in person.

I'm a first time piano student at a ripe golden age that thought I wouldn't have to learn to read notes...haha! I was apprehensive about taking piano lessons at this stage of life. Lana is the best...she is patient, challenging, supportive, and makes learning fun. She starts you off with songs you enjoy playing and builds to a variety. I've only been playing for a short time and I already have a great mix of popular songs and now moving into classical. She even made learning notes fun with an app she found. You learn and play at your own pace. I've seen her interact with young and old and am impressed with her aptitude of working with each person at their unique skill level. I love learning piano from Lana and I would recommend her to people and children of all ages.

I vary students’ lessons with their interests and find the best teaching methods and practices to fit their needs. Because I believe everyone is different and unique. No one can stop you on learning anything but yourself. Therefore, I want students to focus on every lesson and have to practice outside of class which are required and important. Playing music is fun but learning takes time!!

Ann is great, I think she deserves 5-stars because she is talented and really wants to help me improve. Within just moments she had recognized some problems with my breathing and posture that are already helping.
