I've been taking online lessons with Wei for the past couple of months, and I quite enjoy them. As an adult piano player, I don’t have specific goals. I just play for fun most of the time. Wei, nevertheless, made specific teaching plans for me. He learns my strength and weaknesses, and chooses pieces that are both enjoyable to play and technically challenging for me, so that I’m able to tackle my weaknesses. His expertise helps me improve in many ways, like piano techniques and overall understanding of music. After a few lessons with him, I gained confidence in playing. I’m able to improve my performance of the pieces I love. Besides, Wei is an easy-going person. It’s fun to work with him. I strongly recommend his lessons if you are looking for a teacher with patience, expertise and passion for music.

A teacher of mine once said if you aim for perfection, you get to be pretty darn good. I like to start with a small amount of material that the student can play very well, and use that to refine the basics. By taking a thorough approach (and playing beautiful music), the entire world of piano and music will slowly and surely open up to the pupil.

In my opinion, tone production and rhythm are the major factors that distinguish a great pianist (and make playing the most satisfying), so this is the major focus of our work. I have a very thorough understanding of proper technique and can prescribe exercises that will strengthen one's weaknesses.

I also have a unique background in that I studied jazz improvisation and classical composition, so I understand the inner workings of the music and can improvise in the styles (jazz, classical, baroque, romantic).

My passion is teaching music as a language that you will come to understand. I don't only teach notes on a page, but an understand of music theory (the building blocks of music). If you want to know not just how to play, but also create music, send me a message! I learned to play piano by ear, and then studied classical repertoire as well. I have 10 years experience in gospel music, and 2 years gigging in a country band. I have taught piano lessons for 6 years, and have had a variety of students from different backgrounds along the way. My goal is to teach a variety of styles and tailor lessons to your unique musical taste! Everyone's musical journey is different, and so each lesson is personalized to your needs.

About Lane

I am a professional keyboard player for a country cover band, and I also play regularly in churches. I learned to play piano by ear, and have a rich background in gospel music. Over the years, I have been privileged to learn from and play with talented musicians in many environments, including chur

If you are looking for someone that can push you, make you believe in yourself and abilities, and just simply fall in love with music even more, Lane is the teacher for you. The dedication and love for music is extremely evident in Lanes teachings. I honestly believe that there isn’t anything he can’t perform or teach you to do. The talent is definitely there. Do yourself a favor and don’t miss out on this opportunity. It will be well worth it!

I wanted to learn piano for a while, but couldn’t find the motivation. After just a few lessons with Lane, I was hooked! He explains everything so well. The lessons are fun and informative. He has something to offer for both beginning AND experienced piano players. Thank you, Lane!

"My son began taking piano lessons about 6 months prior to our finding Miss Fawn. Prior to switching instructors, he hated practicing and his lessons. Piano held no interest for him. Once he began taking lessons from Miss Fawn, everything changed. He practices on his own for longer periods than he is required to and Miss Fawn has instilled a love of the craft in him. He loves it and he loves learning from her. He is so impressed by her ability and tries his best to be his best for her. Thank you, Miss Fawn."

"Fawn is Very good with children. My son really listens to everything she teaches him and he is engaged with what she teaches him. He knows she expects his music theory and note spelling done each week as well as the songs and reading about whatever composer she assigns. Once he passes a certain level, she springs a test on him to find out what has stuck with him and become part of him and what has not. She is excellent. She's got an A++ personality as well. My wife and I couldn't be happier with this music teacher."

"I am honored to finally write a review for Maria!

Having already been a musician for a decade on various other instruments, I was looking for a teacher that could help me learn technique for piano. I found Maria on this website and have never had a better private teacher.

She quickly adapted to my experience level, gave constant feedback, called me on my mistakes (in the nicest way possible) and encouraged me to succeed.

I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to learn piano, regardless of your musical background. She is a wonderful, kind, incredibly knowledgeable teacher and is a very welcoming and encouraging person. I am so glad to have had her as my teacher."

"I have been studying with Maria for two months and she is the best piano teacher I have ever had. I played piano very seriously as a child, with excellent instruction using the technique of Josef and Rosina Lhevinne. As an adult, I did not play for several decades, so I am returning to piano as an older adult student. In the two months we have worked together, I have made tremendous progress.

The technique Maria teaches emphasizes using the weight of the body to produce sound while keeping the hands and arms relaxed and fluid, which not only produces a most beautiful and expressive tone, but protects the body from injury. Although similar to the Lhevinne technique, Maria’s technique takes it to higher level. Many piano teachers do not teach a technique but, in my opinion, solid technique is critical for an advanced student and best learned from the beginning.

Maria is patient and detail oriented and teaches all aspects piano with mastery. I highly recommend her."
