Private Piano Teacher

I began playing piano at the age of 3 1/2 by ear, listening to music of the 1960s such as The Beatles and Broadway musicals. When I was 15, I started 2 years of classical lessons, and, because my ear was so well developed, was given the opportunity to learn Fur Elise by Beethoven at my second lesson. I had begun teaching the piece to myself after hearing it played on a movie soundtrack. I began my studies at Berklee College of Music in 1979, taking jazz piano and vocal lessons, as well as classes in ear training, theory, and arranging, along with various ensembles and labs. Following my years at Berklee, I played in a number of different bands and had a record produced on which I wrote and sang 4 songs, arranged background vocals, and played piano. This recording received Northeast regional airplay and was one of the highlights of my musical career. I have been teaching piano in the Capital District of New York since 1997, with students ranging in age from 4 to 71, and of various ...

I took lessons with Mary Ann Barker for many years. I have learned many pieces with her, including Beethoven’s Für Elise and Piano Man by Billy Joel. She is a great teacher and I highly recommend taking lessons with her for anyone interested in learning piano.

My 2 10 years old boys have been studying piano for over 3 years. MaryAnn is a great teacher and fabulous with kids
Christine
I am 61 years old, work full-time and have limited time for practicing. I have had 2 previous piano teachers who do not compare to Mary Ann’s level of thoroughness and patience, and ability to diagnose an issue I am having, offering an easy fix, making learning to read music much easier. Most times, it’s a matter of slowing down, setting the metronome to a slower speed. She does not rush me. I “show up” and she encourages and teaches me to have fun.

I am a 12 year old piano student and have been taking piano lessons with Minoo for 5 months. In that short time, I have progressed much faster than I could have imagined. I have learned so much about the piano and how to read music. Minoo always makes sure I understands every part of my lessons. When I struggle with notes, Minoo patiently gets me through until I succeed. She is one of my favorite teachers, music-wise and school-wise. Minoo is a caring, calm and happy teacher. I’m glad we found her to teach me piano. Thank you Minoo!

As an adult learner, I was intimidated to start piano. Minoo is encouraging as well as a skillful teacher. I highly recommend her.

Piano is one the best instruments to learn when you approach music, because you can see how music actually works physically under your fingers more than any other instrument. Playing piano is not Rocket Science, I can teach you to play easier and faster than you would think. Within the first 2 lessons you will be playing simple chord structures of a song that you choose. My goal is to customize your lessons around your learning styles and musical preferences. I've played piano for over 30 years in the studio and touring all over the US, Mexico, and Central America. I can teach you how to play with seemingly effortless technique, how to create unforgettable piano parts, how to improvise solos, and bring thunderous energy into your playing venues! I look forward to speaking with you soon

Shon is very accommodating to helping you learn at your own pace. He is very patient, encouraging and insightful. Shon is very relaxed which helps me feel comfortable and not feel pressured. He gives reassurance all the time that the "growing pains" of learning guitar are normal things everyone fights through. I would highly recommend him.

I teach beginners through early advanced levels and have been doing so for 30 years. In my studio you will begin with the basics and when those are solid, you may choose a classical or recreational path or combine the two. The studio curriculum includes various styles and genres of music so you will be getting a well rounded education. Scales, chords and technique are also taught.

A positive reinforcer every minute. Linda's teaching and coaching give me hope.

If your child is interested in learning to play piano and read music, I would definitely recommend Linda Bates. I have truly enjoyed watching my daughter grow through her lessons.
She was only 5 1/2 when she asked to start learning piano, and even though I thought she might be too young, I didn’t want to discourage her. Linda said that as long as she could count from 1-10, knew her left from right and the alphabet through “G” she could start learning piano.
We have had stretches of easy sailing and lots of rough patches. It’s been a great set of life lessons for our family.
Linda tried several different approaches to see what would work best for my daughter. She has a great balance of patience, structure and encouragement. She’ll let my daughter chatter on about (non-piano related) stuff for a minute, and then, gently but firmly, get her back on track.
We have gone to several recitals and enjoyed hearing her other students play. We are consistently impressed.
My daughter has been taking lessons for two years now, and finally loves piano. She sees the benefit of working at something that doesn’t come easy. She practices every day without complaining! (She’s practiced every day for a while now, but there was A LOT of resistance in the beginning, and middle, lol). Now she knows that most people are not just naturally talented, they actually put in time and effort.
I’m sure Linda would be great for any adult too. One of these days I just might have to find out for myself... although my daughter keeps insisting she’s going to teach me!
Julia
My friend, whose son received a music scholarship as well as enjoyed his piano lessons highly recommended Linda to me. Linda's great experience and personal methodologies guide students in the shortest way to success and brings an appreciation of music into their lives. No moments during her lessons are wasted on unrelated matters and she always keeps students focused by moving from one activity to another, and by being friendly and encouraging. She is always flexible with her schedule and pleasant to work with. She is a rare instructor who works hard to give students the opportunity to perform in public venues a few times and year (the most favorite moments to my boys), which make children self-confident and proud to demonstrate the fruit of their effort. I have two children who are taking lessons with Linda and they love it: 11 years old (for six years) and 8 years old (for four).
Daily practice at home for my children has turned into a fun habit, and I do not have to be involved much anymore. Linda is a role model for how an instructor should be and I highly recommend her to everyone. I am very thankful to Linda for bringing such an appreciation and joy of music into my sons lives. Our family moved to Portland three months ago, but we are still driving to Olympia once a week for lessons because so far we cannot find another instructor with the same excellent qualities.

Anna is adept at teaching adults. My wife and I are in our late twenties with no music background at all, and she has done a great job at both introducing the theory behind the music and keeping the lessons simple enough to progress and enjoy. It is an even greater testament to her skill that she is able to teach in this way in a completely online format. Anna knows how to get the most out of her students and is extremely passionate about helping them improve, even contacting them outside of lesson time to check on their progress. We would recommend Anna to anyone!
Allyson King
We arrived to Anna after my son took piano lessons elsewhere with little progress. My son is interested in music, but lacked the confidence to push through skills he found challenging. This has changed under Anna’s direction, and our son is making excellent progress. We find Anna to be extremely knowledgeable and competent, and her passion for piano shows. Anna is patient and gentle, but she will undoubtedly push your child to do their best. She will get to know your child to determine their interests and work with them to achieve their goals. Highly recommended!
Julia
I have taken lessons with Anna since I was seven years old (currently age 18). I began knowing nothing about the piano or music theory. Neither of my parents can play the piano. I was a beginner in every sense of the word. Now, I have not only a deep love and appreciation for music, but also an advanced musical capacity and repertoire. I have played pieces from a variety of styles and time periods, from Claude Debussy to Mozart to Hadyn to jazz and contemporary. I was able to have a personal high school senior recital and share this love and talent with others. In high school, I completed a music theory and composition course with ease.

I cannot recommend Anna enough. Her dedication and patience is unparalleled and she cares so deeply for her students. She is methodical, attentive, thoughtful, and is an absolute hidden gem of a teacher. Anna opened a world of music to me and I don’t think I can ever truly express how much that means to me. Not only am I a better musician because of her, but I’m also a better person. Her attention to detail and passion have challenged the way that I approach work and hobbies beyond just music.

Anna is particularly skilled as an educator. Beyond simply giving information for students to practice or memorize, she helps them apply the concepts to real musical pieces, guiding them along the way. Her calm but advanced method of teaching helps students advance quickly through musical concepts.

Over the past eleven years, I have spent literally hundreds of hours with Anna honing my craft. If anyone has seen the extent of her talent as a teacher, I’d like to think it’s me.

Five stars out of five stars. Always.
