When I meet a new student, my goal is first to find out your personal music preferences and goals. Then I usually start with warm-ups, exercises and scales. You get to choose from my wonderful literature of music on your path of discovery! If you want me to I'll keep records of your musical as well as your technical progress. But above all it's important to me that you have fun! So let's get started -your dreams are within reach!
Originally born in Germany, Chrissy developed a passion for music, language and teaching early on. Right out of High School she helped her mother, who was an educator at that time, write and stage-manage a children's Musical which found great response from the audience. During her Music studies in the Netherlands she was offered an internship at the local Music School which she gratefully accepted and where she enjoyed her first voice coaching experience. There she was also nominated as one of the most promising young singer/songwriters at the LUX Festival in Nijmegen. Over the years she was blessed with more and more private students in voice as well as piano. During her stay in New York she received the opportunity to work with a Broadway show ensemble ("Dreamgirls") as a Music Director on their different harmonic parts. She's proudly b
een a member of the Music of Oz Studio staff in Crown Point, Indiana since Jan. 2011 and is looking forward to teaching out of her home now as well. Chrissy is crazy about all her students and wants them to succeed! She's very much looking forward to working with you and having buckets of fun! :-)
I've been teaching music and piano performance for over 20 years and my students have gone on to win international competitions and be major in piano performance at college and Universities. I have recording experience with very young children and adults. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play professionally and record your pieces and as time goes on you'll be able to build up your own digital repertoire. I specialize in piano performance and music Theory/musicology, typically use the Suzuki Method for very young beginners and Musilanguage books. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!
I have an extensive training in "training" musicians: it doesn't matter if you are young or old, beginner or advanced, I will bring you to the next level. I am a pianist and a music theorist, I am a dedicated and successful teacher.

My lessons will take you where you are and bring you a step further. I'll explain you in detail how to reach your goals faster. Sometimes you'll need to work on your own way to learn, on yourself. I'll be always there to help you! Why you should have lesson with me? Simply because I am among the best teachers in the world and I love the idea to reach more students through this medium.

My daughter has been training with Antonella for years and she does wonderful with kids. She loves music and has a passion that will help her students learn music and have fun while doing it

Antonella is an AMAZING teacher. I am an older adult student, with no music theory or background. She is very patient, accommodating, and uses very useful analogies that help me visualize what to do in a way that helps me learn and remember. My own weakness is in making time to diligently practice. I look forward to each lesson, and give her my highest recommendation.

Our experience with Antonella has been wonderful. She has high standards but is also extremely patient with young students. My daughter has learned beautiful technique but more importantly, she has expanded her mind, improved her sense of discipline and commitment and learned to play piano with a feel for the music. Working with Antonella is fantastic for the student and their parent/guardian. It's a joint effort. I highly recommend Antonella

I'm a music teacher in DC and also case manage special needs students.
Outside of teaching percussion and musical performances I have worked in special education for over 15 years.
My life of music started knee high at the age of 4 playing drums and piano. At the age of 15 I gave my first musical performance, from that stage on I knew my talent had found a home.
In the 11th grade I toured with a local funk group in Washington DC through 26 cities learning music and the life of travel at an early age. During my last high school and college years I performed extensively playing classical, jazz, rock, funk, go-go, gospel, marching band, R&B, and with local rap artist.
Recording credits and highlights include work with Def Jam artist Steady Eddy, recording go-go Mario with Double Agent Rock, and recordings with Little Benny and the Masters.
My other musical passion is teaching. Throughout my col
lege years and beyond I served as a percussion instructor and assistant band director at Morgan State University. As part of the Morgan State University Magnificent Marching Machine I served as a instructional leader in music and performance mentor for the team. I taught part time as a percussion instructor at Milford Mill High School giving individual lessons for over 10 years.
Musical inspiration is an important element to the refinement of my craft. A few personal musical influences are Buddy Rich, Max Roach, Neil Peart (Rush), Dennis Chambers, (Santana), George Gray (Roberta Flack), Ricky Wellman (Miles Davis), Quinton Mack-Davis (Rare Essence) and Michael Bland (Prince).

My son’s first lesson went really well! Mr. Charles was really accommodating - as we were running late and he patiently waited and completed our full first session. My son is already looking to his next lesson.

Our son has never played in a marching band before but is interested in playing in the marching band when he attends college in July so we were specifically looking for an instructor who had marching band experience to teach our son since he's never participated in the marching band in high school. We saw Mr. Stewart's profile and decided to have him work with our son. That was the BEST decision that we could have ever made. We have been nothing but impressed with Mr. Stewart. He definitely has the gift of teaching and he is very patient, knowledgeable, and he challenges our son to get better by giving him homework after each session. Our son absolutely LOVES Mr. Stewart and he is always excited for each lesson and to practice what Mr. Stewart has taught him. Our son went from not playing in the marching band at all in high school to making his college band and receiving a scholarship all thanks to Mr. Stewart. We are very grateful for his outstanding teaching and we would definitely recommend Mr. Stewart 100%.
The piano is one of the most beautiful sounding instruments, and I want to help you achieve every musical goal you have with it. We will go over note recognition, scales. rhythm, technique, performance and more!
Hi, I'm Bri! I'm a graduate of North Central College with a BA in Music (Emphasis in Composition and Percussion) and a minor in History. I absolutely love music, every single aspect of it. I love to make music a part of everybody's lives who want and need it. I want to help you with your musical needs. I have been playing percussion for 19 years, singing for 25, and playing piano for 20 years. I was a member of a recording and performing Chicago band, Oblio and Arrow, where I provided backing vocals and helped with the song arrangements. I am currently a member of Trip City Lights, an LA local funk/soul band, where I provide lead and backing vocals. I also record vocals for different artists hooks, jingles, choruses, and songs (covers and originals). I have also composed/arranged various pieces for ensembles, bands, vocal groups, choirs,
plays, musicals, commercials, etc. I've worked with folks locally in LA, and all over the world. I love what I do!
History has always fascinated me. The way our world has developed and changed and continues to evolve is amazing. Everything can be tied back to the past, and I feel it's important to take a look back, put yourself in that time, and really study how things were to help understand why things are the way they are now.
Crocheting and knitting are a couple of good habits/hobbies I picked up about 10 years ago. I sell scarves online and I'm always working on some sort of project. I will have you knitting and pearling with the best of them!
Music, history, crochet, and knitting....I'm your girl!
I have privately instructed over 30 students in beginner-level piano skills. I can help you master the basics of the instrument, acquire a basic technique, and how to read music if necessary. Once these fundamentals are solid, we can cover piano repertoire from a wide variety of styles (jazz, classical, rock, pop, international, etc.), and maybe even some of your favorite music and pieces! If the student wishes, I can supplement my teaching with music theory.
My biggest priority in teaching is to help you reach your specific goals and address your needs. Every student has their own objectives and learns at their own pace, and my job is to ensure that you get exactly what you want out of the lessons. Your goals are my foremost interest, and I can help you achieve them!

I have been attending online classes of arranging with Daniel for several months now and all I can say is that he has helped me greatly in progressing towards achieving my musical goals.

Thank you very much Daniel!

My daughter is enjoying her beginner-level lessons with Miss Naomi very much. Miss Naomi is encouraging her to learn and play and develop her technique in class and at home during practice sessions. I was very pleased with my daughter's progress during our initial 5 lessons. We're planning to continue lessons with enthusiasm and appreciation for Miss Naomi's teaching skills and professionalism.

Naomi is great with kids. My daughter always had fun during the lessons. And, that is the most important thing for a 4-year-old. Naomi is goal-oriented, and she made sure that there is continuity between the lessons. Good teacher.

My first experience with any music lesson.
I am a senior.
I loved it.
Naomi was excellent.

Raymond is exceptional as a teacher and musician; always patient and enjoying the experience of guiding you to b
ecome the best musician you can be. His musical experience and abilities are evident. In addition to all of these qualities he is serious and dedicated to developing your knowledge and skills through discipline and practice - always with a sense of humor and enjoyment in the music and what you both are accomplishing. Learning to become a musician with Raymond is as enjoyable as listening and dancing to music. I look forward to my class with Raymond each time."
"As someone new to music in general, Lena focused our lessons on the fundamentals of reading music and Hanon exercises to attain dexterity. She is a very p
atient instructor who works with you to fix errors step by step and was more than willing to answer the many questions I constantly threw at her. I have learned quite a lot in the short time I have been working with her and I would recommend her to fellow beginners."
"Teresa is not only knowledgable, warm and loving with her students but flexible with schedules. She's been teaching my son to play the drums for a year no
w, and she recently started him on the piano! We drive all the way from Calabasas to her because she is so worth the trip, my son and I adore her!"
"Jennifer was very attentive and worked very well with my 6 year old!"
"Summer is a fantastic teacher. As a not-quite-beginner who has been frustrated by teachers in the past that always seem disappointed by my progress or adh
ere too strictly to a specific teaching methodology, Summer has been a breath of fresh air. She's an exceptionally talented pianist, has guided me through some pieces i couldn't hope to have negotiated on my own, and I'm already seeing the benefits of her guidance on technique and musical theory. Genuinely the best piano teacher I've had."
"I wish I could give Lipeng more than 5 stars. Keeping a 3 year old focused, engaged and learning is not easy. My daughter not only enjoyed her session, sh
e was borderline possessive about Lipeng and kept on asking me if Ms. Lipeng will come back. Looking forward a fun ride in learning piano with Lipeng."
"I'm finally accomplishing my musical goals!
Thanks to Bill, I feel like I am finally confident enough to play music with friends and other musicians.
ve been taking lessons with Bill for over a year now and he's helped to understand the way music works. I have learned to hear music in a different way than before I started taking lessons. Bill is an extremely talented and well educated instructor. He can be methodical and technical when teaching me theory, but he also places a strong emphasis on having fun, and learning music on a practical level."
"Very pleasant person. My granddaughter enjoyed her lesson with her and is looking forward to her next. Thank you Ms. Bebe"
"Kimberly was very Patient with my 4 year old during his first lesson.
Are you getting bored or perhaps discouraged with playing the piano? In this week's guest post, Allysia from PianoTV.net shares three ways to stay motivated at the piano...
We all know the drill with motivation. You listen to a great recording or live performance, and are filled with energy and enthusiasm. You rush to the piano and happily practice every day for a week, a month, or even longer.
But then maybe you get bored, or hit a rough patch, and suddenly you can barely drag yourself …
