Private Piano Teacher

Receive a well-rounded, creative piano education from a teacher who has a wide variety of musical experience! Whether it's about learning the basics of the instrument, learning and appreciating classical repertoire, exploring improvisation, learning the theory (the "Why" and "How" about music), or getting immersed in composition, I can guide you through the process and help you enjoy and appreciate music on many levels that you may have not thought of before! I've been teaching piano since 2004, and currently have a total of about 35 students of a wide variety of ages, levels, and focuses (classical, jazz, theory, composition, etc.)

While the focus may be piano, I like to try to immerse you in related fields (such as improvisation, composition, and theory) as well, as they all enhance your knowledge of music and feed back into understanding piano on a deeper level. For example, understanding the harmony behind a piece on a theoretical level ("What did the composer do here?") can ...

Private Piano Teacher

For my beginning students I help get them acquainted with the piano and the music that they would like to study.
For my more advanced students I focus primarily on improvisational concepts and playing in group settings.
As with all of my students I have a strong emphasis on developing their ears and follow a sound-before-symbol approach.

About Isaac

As I’ve developed my teaching style over the last ten years, I’ve found myself zeroing in on a few key qualities I want to cultivate in my students and in my self. These include great ears, a high proficiency on the instrument, and a strong and interactive sense of musicality. At the center of my p

Isaac knows his stuff. He has been great in teaching music theory and piano. Easy to get in contact with and flexible in scheduling.
Greg A.
Isaac is an excellent teacher and is highly recommended. His method is not centered on drills, music reading or repetition, but rather on getting an understanding of how the notes, chords work together. In so doing, the student gets a great understanding of theory and it opens the door to improvisation. In addition he's very patient with folks such as myself who don't come to class with a deep understanding of music theory.
Victoria Danberg
I have just begun lessons with Isaac. He is an excellent teacher; attuned to my needs, very good at explaining things, patient, very good at getting me to understand what I need to know. I look forward to learning upright bass with him!

Piano is inherently fun. Maybe thats why they call it "playing" the piano. I will show you the funnest and most interesting way to learn exactly what you want to learn. Ive been masting the instrument for the last 15 years, and I was classically trained by a concert pianist for 8. I understand A LOT about piano injuries, so you wont get injured while working with me. If you can imagine it, I can teach it.

About Joshua

I was classically trained by a concert pianist for 8 years and then I developed a repetitive stress injury while I was taking my grade 9 RCM. I spent the next couple of years talking to specialists and doing my own research. For a while I thought I would have to give up the piano forever. But after

As a piano teacher, I am very open to students' musical goals and assist them in working toward them step by step. I work with what motivates my students to learn. I am very patient and teach my students to be patient with the process so that learning music can become a life-long pursuit.

Schedule: Each student is assigned a designated lesson time each week (half-hour, 45 min, or hour slots). Students are expected to be punctual to ensure full lesson time.

Materials: Students will need lesson books and must have them ready for each lesson. The preferred methods to start are Piano Adventures by Faber, All-in-one course by Alfred or Bastien Piano Basics. Please provide a folder or binder to hold additional sheet music, assignment sheets, theory papers, etc. Links to order piano books, sheet music or music theory flashcards will be sent to students prior to their first lesson and may be ordered via Amazon online.

Practicing: Daily practice should become a habit. Students are ...

You want to learn to play the piano? Then, Ruth is the one you want! I’ve never played the piano before now and Ruth has been there with me, patiently teaching me and guiding me. Now, I can play tunes I even recognize and it’s a lot of fun! I think you’re gonna like her.
Tom Bruce
I am a 61 year old retired teacher, and I have been been taking weekly lessons with Ruth for the past 8 months as a beginner student. She is an excellent teacher showing lots of patience and encouragement. She makes learning the piano a fun and challenging experience. Together we set weekly goals for my playing that keep me progressing and improving at a steady rate. I would highly recommend Ruth for both children and adults.

Online Piano Teacher

I'm an experienced piano teacher that is passionate about music and I enjoy sharing the love of music with my students. I teach all genres of music...from Bach to rock. I specialize in transcribing popular music, therefore I am able to customize the music for all abilities. Though I teach in a traditional manner (reading music, using the pedals, counting, proper fingering, music theory, etc) I teach my students to play REAL music, NOT someone else's lesson plans from a book.

About David

I have been teaching the piano for 35 years. Though I have been classically trained and have a love of the Masters, I am also a fan of Progressive Rock and Top 40 music. 11 years ago I formed a virtual band (Virtual Journey Band) and have been working with musicians worldwide. We recorded and post

"I have an awesome time taking lessons from Cheri. From the beginning when I was learning lessons from different books to currently learning pieces by ear, from playing solo pieces to being part of a band, she has always been patient and fun and very knowledgeable. Being an adult student is an interesting and challenging experience and Cheri has been very supportive every step of the way. She even helped me write a song that included guitar and vocals that we performed with some fellow students at a recent recital. I've appreciated all the time she's worked with me and hope to continue taking lessons from her as long as I enjoy playing the piano."

"Excellent Teacher!

After years of contemplation about playing a musical instrument, I started piano lessons in January 2013. I couldn't have made a better decision. Lessons with Jon have been a wonderful experience. He has the ability to teach music theory as well as the technical aspects of piano, while at the same time encouraging me to explore my own creativeness. He is extremely patient but always finds a way to challenge me. No matter how difficult I may find a particular lesson, I never get frustrated. He is an excellent motivator! My family is amazed at my progression over 6 months. I would highly recomend Jon for a piano teacher!"
