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 ...

About MaryAnn

I have over 50 years of playing experience and have been teaching piano to beginners and intermediate players in the Capital District since 1997. I look forward to hearing from you to start or enhance your musical experience.

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.

We begin with exercises to develop technique and train for agility, musicality and music theory. Classical music is used but not exclusively as we explore the many different genres of music! Ear training is also offered so that the student may be able to play by ear as well as reading music.

About Tim

My wife and I have been teaching piano lessons in the Kansas City area for more than 20 years. We have studios in our home; she teaches upstairs and I teach downstairs! I am currently accepting new students and welcome the opportunity to see them grow and experience the joy of piano playing. W

Tim is a wonderful instructor. He genuinely loves music, and it comes through during lessons. He has a positive teaching style. He strives to meet my kids where there at and teaches to their interests, but also manages to get technique and theory in. Tim is a treasure!

Have you ever wished you could play more than just the notes that were written?
I love to teach new beginners as well as those who already have a good foundation but would like to learn the "frills" and "runs" and all the pretty chords that go along with embellishing simple songs so they sound very impressive! This will take your playing songs you enjoy to a whole new level. It can make the simplest song sound beautiful and leave people wondering how or where you got all those "extra" notes!

One trait sets me apart from the traditional teaching methods, is that I like to teach my students how to play songs YOU enjoy. Once the basics are covered and you feel comfortable with the keyboard and note reading, I like to teach what "YOU" want to learn. Lesson books are good and have a place in learning the skills of playing the piano, but if you are anything like me, when I first started learning, I wanted more than just the lesson songs. I had music I loved, and that's what I wanted ...

Rhonda probably the best teacher I have ever had! for the many years that she taught me the violin, guitar, and trombone. she was always patient especially from the time I was young all the way till I was an “adult” preparing me for concerts and solo acts. Rhonda is a master of all and if you told her that you wanted to be the best triangle player or the best trumpet player she would make it happen. If there was an instrument that she has never used that you wanted to learn she would indefinitely buy it, become a master within the week and begin to teach you. She truly is the most genuine and talented person I have ever had the pleasure to work with!
Craig
I was very pleased at the progress of my first lesson. Rhonda is very patient and goes above and beyond to make this a great experience. I am looking forward to our next lesson.
Emma
I began taking violin lessons from Rhonda at age 5 and eventually added guitar, mandolin, and an occasional vocal opportunity:) I learned so much from her over the years (approx 4) including proper technique, patience, & self discipline. I continue to be active in music & vocal performance in the community at age 18. Rhonda is a great teacher and person!

I have never met a person who regretted taking piano lessons!

Piano lessons are an excellent way to engage all parts of your brain while having fun.

My lessons include: note reading, technique, music theory, ear training, and musicianship.

Although I can teach a variety of genres, my specialty is in classical music.

Ivan is the best, he really worked with my daughter and she enjoys her lessons a lot. She's learned a lot in a short period of time. Ivan is very effective with the online format we chose to use during the pandemic. Couldn't be happier.

Best piano teacher ever!
Gerardo
I would like to highly recommend Ivan Shallal as a music teacher for children. Ivan is a gifted piano teacher. He is very well-respected in Rochester Hills and Troy, Michigan. This community is extremely fortunate to have a music teacher of his caliber to teach in this area.

Ivan is passionate about music. His love for the art is evident in his enthusiastic and energetic teaching techniques. He is exceedingly patient with all students, encourages them, and coaxes the very best effort from each one. Although he is one of the best music teachers in the zone, his prices are extremely reasonable. In my opinion, he is worth every penny he charges, and I certainly believe I have received excellent service for my money.

It is my great pleasure to recommend Ivan Shallal as a music teacher. I am tremendously grateful to him for everything he has taught my daughter.

Every student is not the same. Lesson books assume that they are. So in lessons with me I make sure we aren't afraid to put the book down and just focus on what is important. You learning at your pace, and achieving the goals you want to achieve! No book can personally adjust a lesson plan to accommodate how you're feeling, the right teacher can!

About Austin

"My 7 year old daughter started taking piano lessons this year with Antonella. I am amazed that within such a short period of time she has learned so much. She has progressed from 'Mary had a little Lamb' to really beautiful more complex pieces in what seems like no time.
Antonella is a really excellent teacher, very patient and supportive, yet constantly pushing (gently) to make the student better. She is an incredible pianist herself and really encourages Aoife not just to learn and play the notes, but to really use good movement and techniques which make such a difference to the sound of the piece.
Antonella is professional, committed, highly skilled and very passionate about what she does. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her as an amazing piano teacher."
