My approach to teaching involves developing a comprehensive understanding of what one is doing while playing, rather than just learning a couple of songs, or relying solely on your muscle memory, you will be able to explain what you are doing from a theoretical standpoint.

Without getting too heavy with the use of technical terms, I will teach you to see the underlying threads that apply to all styles of music and encourage you to begin making these types of connections yourself.
This is an important skill to develop early so that as you progress you can begin to teach yourself develop your own unique stylistic approaches to music!

After studying at Laguardia High school for the Performing Arts, I attended McGill University in Montreal where I earned my Bachelor's degree in Jazz Piano Performance.

If you study with me you will be able to expand your knowledge of:
-Music Theory
-Harmony
-Piano technique
-Ear Training
-Sight Reading
-Composition
-Improvisation

About Chris

Born and raised in downtown Manhattan, I have studied music for over 15 years now. When I was about 8 years old I started studying classical piano, and to be perfectly honest, it was like pulling teeth to get me to play. The repetitious nature of learning classical etude after etude wore down upon

Chris is a phenomenal piano instructor! He is extremely talented and can play different kinds of music- such an inspiration. He is very patient as my daughter and myself are beginners. He immediately picked up on what kind of music my daughter is into and has her play pieces that interests her and makes her happy (which also means she will practice more) I highly recommend Chris!

There are as many methods of teaching piano as there are teachers.
I like to borrow ideas from others as well as offering my unique approach so there is a blend of traditional and non-traditional. I want each student to be able to read music, play by ear, be familiar with chord structure and improvisation and all the wonderful things musicianship can bring but most of all, I want my students to truly enjoy playing the piano and I do believe that process at least as important as product.

About Marie-France

I have taught piano and voice most of my adult life. After working with hundreds of students, I realized that I needed to adapt my teaching style to the uniqueness of each student, especially those whose perceptions differ widely from the general populace. I love what I do, helping each student dis

I enjoyed my 2 sessions with Marie, at the end of my second lesson she offered to email me a list of acting/improv classes in NYC because everyone she knows was in NYC.
This was contradictory because initially she told me she just moved here and doesn't know anyone up north. And besides that, I expressed how happy i was with her classes which was down the road 35 minutes and not commuting to NYC which is over a couple hours.
Anyway, I am glad that I actually learned something and got to do exercises and not leave with the feeling that i wasted my money and most importantly my time like other acting coaches on here.
Hannah
Great teacher. Very encouraging and patient which is what an adult learner needs. She supports her students and gives them interesting contemporary pieces to learn (that is the genre we picked so we stay interested in practicing!). Thanks Marie France!

I enjoyed my 2 sessions with Marie, and from work she was a 35 min commute vs 90 mins to NYC.
With her I felt engaged, she was prepared, professional, stayed on topic and gave relevant critiques and feedback.
At the end of my second lesson she offered to email me a list of acting/improv classes in NYC which she did.

*COVID-19 UPDATE*
Since Allegheny County is moving to the green phase of reopening, I am beginning to phase in in-person lessons again. Please be aware that if you want to take in-person lessons, they will have to be socially distanced and with masks for the time being.

I have been studying piano for over ten years and I am a member of the National Music Teacher's Association - Greater Pittsburgh Chapter. I am certified through level 10 (advanced) in the California Certificate of Merit for Piano program. I also play French horn and have my Bachelor's degree in Music, specifically in French horn performance, from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.

My hope in teaching piano lessons is to instill in others the lifelong joy that I have discovered through learning piano. Being able to sit down and create a piece of music is a magical thing that I am excited to pass on to my students! Lessons will be tailored to the individual student's level and goals.

I tailor your lessons to fit your musical interests and your technical needs. Whether you want to play pop, jazz, classical, or contemporary music I can give you all the tools you need. I can help you compose, arrange, improv, play from lead sheets and chord charts, and more to help you reach your musical goals.

I incorporate a lot in piano lessons such as chords, technique, memorization, music reading, music theory, ear training and more. I like using both lesson books and music that the individual picks out to keep students interest and engagement. I use many materials throughout lessons. I like to incorporate the fundamentals of music theory so that the student understands the concepts of music, not only learning to read sheet music. I keep lessons fun and engaging and I teach each student what they want to learn. I consistently check in with students progress and continue to take students to the next level. Students will learn how to practice efficiently, and learn patience in the process. I continually help students form good practice habits and show them effective ways to practice.

Lynzi is amazing! She's patient and tailors each lesson to your individual need. She is very professional, but welcoming at the same time. We would highly recommend Lynzi.
Rafael C.
Lynzi is very knowledgable with vocal training and an excellent singer as well. I explained issues with my voice and she gave great tips to help strengthen my singing. The main thing is that she listened to my needs and heard what was going on with me vocally. I already hear a difference with my singing after one lesson and doing what she told me to do. That’s what makes Lynzi a great instructor.

He has a profound understanding of the jazz tradition and piano methods, and he runs a classroom that pushes you to constantly strive for perfection. Despite this, he always manages to remain charismatic and affable, making the learning process as painless as possible. 10/10 - I will definitely be studying with Diego again in the future."

"My 9-yo daughter has had Rachel as a piano teacher for the past 1.5 years. Rachel has always been professional, punctual, and an excellent communicator when it comes to things like rescheduling lessons. My daughter has advanced in piano quite a bit—I attribute much of that to the music Rachel offers. My daughter has played the themes from Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Star Wars (music she knows and is excited to learn!) along with more classical pieces (e.g., Bach). We are very happy with Rachel!"
