Private Piano Teacher

My name is Maggie and I'm a piano teacher. I have been teaching private piano lessons for 10 years. I focus on students' fundamental skills such as finger technic, sight reading, and ear training. I also incorporate music theory during the piano lesson so students also understand why the music sounds beautiful. I teach at my home studio, and I can also drive to your place if you have a piano or keyboard. I teach Classical, Jazz, Blues, and Pop. Don't hesitate to contact me if you are looking for a piano teacher, you're welcome to join my studio!

We love Mrs. Maggie! She is an awesome instructor for our five year old. She is always very patient and detailed with her lesson plans. Our son loves her! We are delighted to have her teach our child!!

Enjoying the lessons very much

Maggie is a great teacher. My seven-year-old daughter loves her and she learns a lot from her. My daughter had a different piano teacher before. I like Maggie's upbeat way of teaching better than her old teacher. I personally believe the right attitude and energy helps motivate kids to learn. I like that she has different lesson plans and reward system. Just a little something to show my daughter that she's doing a good job.

Private Piano Teacher

I am currently teaching most piano lessons online. I am also available for a few in-person lessons in my home studio, if certain safety precautions are followed... more about that at the end of this section.

Whether your lessons are online or in person, a typical lesson with me will include things like this:

-The student plays what they have practiced, and we work on any difficult areas and techniques for playing better.

-I introduce new lesson material, asking questions to make sure my student understands.

-We work on music theory, sight reading, good posture, and helpful practice techniques.

-I expect my students to practice every day, just as I do. It is the only way to become proficient.

- - - - - - - - - -

For online lessons, you may use the online platform provided by TakeLessons, or we can use Zoom. Most of my students are using Zoom.

You will need to order lesson books before your first lesson. Please contact me after you sign up to discuss

About Melody

My name is Melody Cook. I began learning to play the piano when I was five. My mother had a piano and some books. I loved the piano and I mostly taught myself. As an adult, I finally received professional musical instruction when I studied music at Valencia college and the University of Central

Melody is awesome! She was able to answer my myriad of questions at my first lesson and still had time to teach me new things that have really helped me. She was very personable, knowledgeable, and easy to talk to. I have no doubt she is going to help me become the best piano player I can be.
Kali
Very kind and patient with my daughter as she provided the instruction.
Amandine L.
Extremely happy with Melody! She knows how to make little ones focus and work with joy and enthusiasms, on the theory and practice. All the time on time, those 45 minutes are 100% happy and learning time. Thank you!

I have been teaching piano for 22 years. I enjoy teaching students of all ages. I have an earned Masters in music. Students will quickly learn not only the basics of music theory, but will be playing songs as early as their first lesson. It is extremely rewarding watching students have fun, excel, and fall in love with making music. I look forward to working with you.

About Kathryn

Amazing!!! A bright, joyful light!

My experience with Kathy has been great. It's been roughly five months and I learned a lot and I'm also much more confident to sing. Learning the right techniques is crucial. Kathy is extremely patient and she adapts the classes to the student goals and aspirations. English is not my first language and she was also always very respectful and patient in explaining everything twice or maybe three times until I get it.

Kathryn has a terrific demeanor, and provides clear, thoughtful suggestions for technique!

Camille D.
Terrible. Only taught 30 minutes out of 60 minute sessions. On the 3 session I mentioned it and he said he didn’t think my son needed more than that even though we paid for it. Was so disrespectful!!!! Never again!!! Highly unprofessional when asked about why he cut the lessons short. Please don’t leave your kids with this instructor work paying attention. He will get over on you if he thinks you’re not involved.

"Howard is an amazing teacher. He has a love for teaching and watching his students learn and apply their new skills and is great at communicating lessons from his extensive knowledge of all things piano. I enjoyed learning from Howard so much that I would make the 60 mile one way trip to him to take classes. I now have a child and another on the way and that makes it more difficult to make such long trips on one of the fewer and fewer free days I have, but I definitely plan to come back. Howard taught me so much and I would hate to lose what I've learned (although I'm sure Howard could pull it back out of me in short order)."
