Private Classical Piano Teacher

I have been teaching piano almost as long as I have been performing, coming up on 10 years. To date, I have taught lessons to over 100 different students ranging in age from 5 to 70, and ranging in skill from complete beginner to college piano performance major. I can teach students of any level and help them overcome any problem, whether that is a technical problem, interpretative problem, or having pain during playing.

Not every student is going to think I’m the best fit for them. I expect consistent practice, completion of assignments, and attention to detail in music. I have had many trial lessons that don’t pan out because the student or parent thinks my expectations are too high for them. Make no mistake; I expect a lot, but I also care deeply about music and have great understanding and sympathy for those who genuinely try. Whether your goal is to learn to read music, improve rhythm, learn to play the great classical repertoire, or simply have a good time learning the ...

About Kessa

I received my BM in piano performance from Brigham Young University, studying under Dr. Richard Anderson and Dr. Irene Peery-Fox. While there, I studied pedagogy from master teachers Dr. Irene Peery-Fox and Dr. Jared Pierce, who taught me both how to run a studio and how to manage individual lesson

Excellent. Nothing gets by her; very helpful.

I had the opportunity to work with Kessa when we were both in undergrad and I was trying to decide whether or not to become a music major. I was feeling pretty discouraged with my current piano teacher at the school and talked with Kessa since we had a class together and I knew she was a piano major. I had a few lessons with her and she gave me so many helpful ideas about how to approach my pieces and improve my practice habits. She was very kind and didn’t make me feel bad at all, but still pushed me hard in those lessons because she believed in me. Even though I ended up deciding not to go into music after all, I still value those few lessons I had with her and recommend her to everyone at any level.
Marissa
Kessa is a very professional and talented piano teacher. My son loves going to lessons and we love hearing him practice such pretty music. We're impressed with Kessa's ability to explain confusing concepts and to encourage my son when he is having a tough time. She's done so well with transitioning to Zoom lessons during the pandemic and we love being able to have lessons from home.

Polina is an amazing teacher. I learned so much in my first lesson. She's encouraging but honest, which is perfect for those who want real feedback to improve. Can't wait for my next lesson!
Lynn
Only a few times in your lifetime, you come across a person who changes your perspective. Polina is such a person. She introduced to music that I can create by myself. Music of grand masters which I attempt to play and eventually perfect. When Polina teaches, all things come easier. Her encouragement, her patience, her helpful hints make you feel like you are her best student. You learn, you improve and you succeed. Every lesson is enjoyable and you cannot wait for the next.
Torry
Polina is so knowledgeable and informative. We jumped right in and she gave me great feedback on a piece I’ve been working on for a while. She is very motivational and I am excited to continue to work with her and improve my technique and ability.

"Ivan is a great teacher who knows how to interact and teach kids in a way which makes them excited to play piano. Before Ivan was my teacher I didn’t really have an interest in piano but as he came along he helped me develop a urge to be better in piano. Ivan also has patience with kids and helps them learn how to get the right notes and memorize the songs effectively. Ivan didn’t just teach me how to memorize songs he taught me how to read the notes and be able to play the piano without memorizing notes on a sheet of paper. He is a great mentor and a better person"

"My daughter has been taking piano lesson with Tracy since she was five. Tracy is truly a great teacher. She is an outstanding pianist (if you have watched her YouTube performance, you will see her amazing techniques), very patient with young kids, and very good at explaining complicated music theories to kids. She is also very organized. This becomes very important now with virtual piano lessons. She sends lesson notes after each lesson where she write down a detailed weekly practice plan. This is very helpful for parents with little piano experience themselves."
