Excellent job and I am looking forward to my son having more lessons

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!

I approach private lessons with an open ear and an open mind, preferring to take cues from my students' own interests as a guide towards choosing repertoire and building a foundation in theory and technique that will best suit each individual student's needs and goals for their study with me. I teach all styles and genres; no one style is 'sacred' or above any other!

Mike adores teaching. He truly values his interactions with his students. He is patient and enthusiastic and his knowledge of music and vocal theory is astounding. I highly recommend him to anyone at any skill level looking to hone their skills.

The kids both loved taking lessons from Mike, as they could sing modern and show pieces, and they even did excerpts from Handel's Messiah. Highly recommend him.

My base curriculum includes a wide range of tactics from ear-training to sight-reading and learning classical tunes or modern pop songs!

I love teaching and providing the student with different types of styles and genres to learn from. If you wanted to learn classical then we would focus on that and learn in the most efficient pedagogical approaches there are, but if you wanted to learn jazz or rock then we would instead focus on the creative and improvisational side of learning. What a student needs is also based on who they are and what music they love, and with a good combination of fundamental principles and musical exploration the student is nurtured to be the musician they want to be.

At 10th grade, Ms. Charlene encouraged me to take the Advanced level Panel CM competition. That was a memorable experience!

"After learning the piano as a child I decided to take up lessons again and started working with Fawn about 16 months ago. What can I say… She’s fantastic! Fawn is a highly accomplished, talented pianist and an excellent teacher who is passionate about her instrument. She has exceptional musical knowledge and uses effective, intuitive teaching methods. Over the last 16 months I have focused on theory, technique and sound production and I’m now playing things I wouldn’t have dreamed of playing a year ago which is testament to Fawn's expertise, professionalism and patience. Lessons are well structured, fun and punctuated with the right level of humor making them thoroughly enjoyable.
Fawn is always willing to go that extra mile for her students and gave me some hugely helpful advice when buying a new piano (even coming to the shop with me and calling in some discount favors). It’s paid off as I’m now the proud owner of an absolutely lovely instrument. Fawn is a true professional who I can’t recommend highly enough."

"I have been studying with Maria for two months and she is the best piano teacher I have ever had. I played piano very seriously as a child, with excellent instruction using the technique of Josef and Rosina Lhevinne. As an adult, I did not play for several decades, so I am returning to piano as an older adult student. In the two months we have worked together, I have made tremendous progress.

The technique Maria teaches emphasizes using the weight of the body to produce sound while keeping the hands and arms relaxed and fluid, which not only produces a most beautiful and expressive tone, but protects the body from injury. Although similar to the Lhevinne technique, Maria’s technique takes it to higher level. Many piano teachers do not teach a technique but, in my opinion, solid technique is critical for an advanced student and best learned from the beginning.

Maria is patient and detail oriented and teaches all aspects piano with mastery. I highly recommend her."
