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 lessons

Excellent. Nothing gets by her; very helpful.
Caleb
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.

I have decades of experience working with students of all ages and levels and I often prepare students for recitals and NYSMMA competitions. I do not use a cookie-cutter method for instruction. Lessons are tailored to meet the specific needs of each student and taught in a comfortable and friendly teaching environment.

I specialize in teaching:

* beginners students (ages 6 and up)
* basic classical repertoire
* music theory
* jazz & blues improvisation

Not sure? Try one lesson and see if you like it.
PS. I also give drum lessons!

My student-centered approach means students feel important. Students have my full attention without distraction. My studio is well equipped with Steinway grand piano and full set of teaching aids. The studio is large enough to social distance and all precautions are taken including the following of CDC protocols.
My experience is wide and deep. As a piano teacher of all levels for decades, I am able to easily assess your current skills and create a plan for us that will keep you motivated.
As a teacher of children for decades, I am sensitive to the psychology of children. I am empathetic and understand how important it is to build trust and how easily that trust can slip away if not respected.
I am a virtuoso. I can be viewed on youtube and continue to create videos of major works. I am not all talk. I walk the walk.
I have a multi-dimensional approach. Ear training, repertoire, analysis, technique, theory and problem solving are all part of it.
I have a multi-domain ...

About Benjamin

Talent is surprisingly common. What is uncommon is the willingness to develop this talent through adequate practice. Desire is the answer to this problem. As a teacher, I want to know what you want to learn. If I can build a lesson plan centered around your musical desires, you'll practice more,

I took lessons from Dr. Dockery while I was in college at TWU. He truly cares about his students inside an out of the lesson. I was always challenged to grow and own my piano skills but also never left without feeling encouraged! Five stars all the way from this student!
Savannah
I was fortunate enough to study piano with Dr. Ben Dockery during my time as an undergraduate music major. Dr. Dockery is not only an excellent musician, pianist, and arranger, but he is also a patient and thoughtful instructor who cares about his students. Dr. Dockery helped me to grow both musically and technically during the four years I studied with him, and he also taught me one of the most valuable lessons that I can pass along to my own students: how to practice. Understanding the benefits of slow, focused practice made a true difference in my growth as a pianist. Because of his encouragement, I chose to pursue graduate work in piano performance, and now as a Master’s student, I reflect on how much he helped to prepare me for this experience. I often find myself quoting Dr. Dockery to my own students, and I hope to have the opportunity to impact a student someday as he did for me.
Dr. Dockery is a wonderful teacher and mentor, and I would gladly recommend him to any student!
Christopher Livingston
One of the best instructors I’ve ever had. I took lessons from Dr. Dockery for about 4 years, and in that short amount of time I saw my understanding of music grow by leaps every day. He knows how to connect to his students and understand difficulties they may be having (being either physical motor skills maneuvering across the keyboard and/or mental hurdles understanding difficult lessons. ) He is very intelligent and his skills are remarkable in both performance and teaching. I can not recommend him enough to anyone wanting to begin learning piano or even someone wanting to better themselves if they already possess some amount of skill. 5 Stars.

"Ms. Alty is a very patient yet thorough piano teacher. Since we left our hometown for Houston, it's been really difficult getting a piano teacher that matches the same talent as our previous teacher. We had gone through 4 teachers in Houston. However finding Ms. Alty was like finding a rare gem at the top of the mountain.
She is very knowledgeable and has the skills to get a child to listen and actually want to practice. My children have improved tremendously and actually started playing more complicated musical piece.
My children love Ms. Alty and always look forward to having their piano class. I would recommend Ms. Alty if you're looking for a very musically knowledgeable and talented piano teacher who is both firm and gentle when teaching,"
