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 lessons

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.

I offer music lessons in the lower Hudson Valley region as well as remotely via Skype or FaceTime.

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 ...

Although my training is in classical music, most of my lessons consist of playing and singing modern songs, while also learning the basics. I teach all ages and all experience levels.

Hi there! I graduated from CSULB’s Bob Cole Conservatory with a Bachelor’s in Vocal Performance, and I also has 10 years of piano study under my belt and have completed Certificate of Merit Level 7. Let me know your goals with piano and I can help you get there, whether you're an ADULT (trust me, it's NEVER too late to start. Don't listen to nay-sayers, they are just afraid), a TEEN (this is the time of your life when music can seize your heart so if you have favorite artists, let's play their songs after we solidify some piano basics), or a child (we can learn at your pace while having fun). Progress is built with consistent practice and familiarizing yourself with piano, even if you're just messing around on it during the week.
