I teach the very beginner to the very advanced levels. combining piano technique with music theory and some history and analysis of western music so the student will understand what he's doing and be able to interpret in the right style of the music he's playing.

About Berthe
My name is Berthe ( pronounced Bert). At the age of 4, I began taking
piano lessons. By age 8, I was performing for the first time at the
Assembly Hall of the American University of Beirut. In 1978, I attended
the Faculty of Music of the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik/Lebanon,
where I completed a PhD. in music education and a higher diploma in
piano.
From 1982 to 2000, I taught piano, music theory, music education,
music appreciation, and the history of and analysis of Western music
at the University of the Holy Spirit of Kaslik (USEK), The University of St.
Joseph (USJ) and the Lebanese University (UL).
I recorded my first CD “Rehna Meshouar”, a collection of Lebanese
songs for children, intended to introduce music to kids. I took part in
many educational activities and devoted myself to the promotion of
musical educatio
n to the children. In 1995, I published my first book
“Do-Mi-Sol”, that focuses on a method specifically designed to teach kids
Solfege (oral theory and ear training).

From 1998 to 2001 I was in charge of training aspiring music teachers
at the Ecole Normale in piano, music education, psychology of music
education, and the philosophy of music education.
By the year 2000,I was appointed Director of Studies and the Academic
Secretary of the Music Faculty at the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik.
During my tenure, I employed teachers, advised students, and
developed artistic and academic programs. It was my responsibility to
organize studies and examinations, as well as plan, execute, organize studies and examinations, as well as plan and execute
concerts, conventions, and competitions. I have lectured all over Europe and the Middle East, as well as published many articles concerning music and music education.
Since moving to Florida in 2007, I am a professor of piano instruction at St. Petersburg College. I also give private lessons in my studio. I have served as a judge several times at the Bay Ridge Piano Festival.

*** Lesson Details ***
Our musical journey has a smooth and relaxed progression, establishing enough command of the keyboard to allow each student to develop naturally. To make the piano a richer and more rewarding experience, I enjoy introducing a variety of musical styles, from popular favorites to timeless classical pieces, according to the student’s musical tastes.

I believe in a dynamic and responsive method of teaching. I see the student as an active participant in their own learning. Our lesson feels pleasant and joyful, so the student will always delight in playing the piano and creating music. Based on the student’s age and demands, I employ several methods of teaching that lead to the development of observation, concentration, creativity, self-confidence, and personal expression. I encourage and support my students regardless of specific talent, as we move toward an effective and beneficial musical experience.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room: baby grand piano, additional seating for parents.

*** Specialties ***
I teach Classical music to beginners and advanced students and follow the active method of teaching where the student is not just a receiver but participate in his own learning.

As an older student returning to piano after many years I needed someone with patience, but also someone who would be willing to push me to give my best. She is just the right combination for my needs. She not only knows her subject very well, but is able to transfer her knowledge and passion for music to her students. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Berthe if you truly want to enjoy learning to play piano with passion.

Perhaps my most popular lesson, I teach piano to all ages and all levels. I am particularly skilled in the area of accelerating the beginner/early intermediate pianist into a high level of musicianship. I customize my piano instruction to each individual student, so that each can develop a plan to achieve personal growth and success through musicianship.

About Victor
I received my Bachelor of Music Degree in Organ Performance from the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music in June of 2010, studying under Dr. Roberta Gary. I have completed two years of additional graduate study at the Conservatory, and plan to utilize these credits to earn a Master's in Music in the next few years.

I began playing the piano at the age of 5, later moving to the organ at 9. I have held a church job since then, working in multiple different denominations and settings. I have a strong background of piano, accompanying, theory, sacred liturgy, and musical performance. I enjoy studying and listening to many genres of music as well as performing them. I am very interested in historically informed performance and understanding different techniques as they are related to the composition style of different time perio
ds.

I enjoy working with students of all ages. Regardless of your ability, age, or experience, I will work with you. We can work out a plan for lesson times, intensity of practice and work, and tailor the lesson to the right pace for you.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons tend to be tailored to the needs of individual students. I am not as much a fan of a strict curriculum that I use on each student. For beginners, one can expect to be given method books to get them moving in the right direction. As one advances, we eventually move on to repertoire. I take an approach to lessons that emphasizes total body awareness and high level mental awareness. The most important thing anyone can learn in music is that it isn't just about the right notes; it isn't about the right rhythm. It is about the complete musicianship and the complete awareness needed to truly understand and perform a work of music. In order to make this approach work, my strictness as a teacher varies depending on the level of devotion the student is willing to put forth. After six months with me as a teacher, expect to notice changes in the way you see music and comprehend your technique at the keyboard.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect students to purchase their own music. For beginners with method books, I have these available to the students to purchase from me.

*** Specialties ***
I am very highly trained in performance practices of the Baroque era, especially on the organ. I am also very specialized in body movement and efficient keyboard technique. I also have a lot of experience in the Romantic repertoire of the piano. Lastly, I am also well trained as an accompanist on both the organ and the piano.

I have enjoyed working with Victor. He is very knowledgeable about the music in particular the Baroque period. He brings a very good perspective that has enriched my understanding of early music. I can say clearly that one leaves sessions with a desire to learn more and with an understanding of music as serious branch of human study rather than something that is simply fun (in the sense of being mundane amusement).

I started teaching piano lessons as a senior at the University of Texas in 2011. My students range in age from 5 to 16 years old, introductory to intermediate playing levels.

I have an extensive background in music theory including classical piano training, contemporary guitar, years of choir, and personal voice coaching.

I have a special ability to work with young and inexperienced students. I am the perfect teacher for a student that is just being introduced to the world of piano. I am also a great teacher for those students who have a light background but are just starting to be re-introduced to the piano.

Lana has proven to be a wonderful teacher over the past couple of months since I have been using her. I have a demanding sales job in Florida that requires me to travel by car all of the time. Basically living out of hotel rooms a couple months out of the year, I have not been able to continue my hobbies so easily especially playing the piano. After having a dinner conversation with a co-worker, he mentioned to me that I take online piano classes. He knew of Lana through a relative that recently had a recital that he attended and was impressed with their progress. Sounded like a great idea. I reached out to Lana, put the keyboard in the trunk of the car, and the rest was history! I was a little hesitant of taking online instruction at first but it really has allowed me to continue my hobbies on the road and greater flexibility when I am home as well. The quality of the video streaming works well and I really enjoy the instruction that Lana has provided for me. She seemed to understand my pace of learning and had me fine tuning some technical issues that I was having. I am extremely satisfied with her services and look forward to our instructional sessions. I would definitely recommend her to anyone interested in taking piano lessons online or in person.

I'm a first time piano student at a ripe golden age that thought I wouldn't have to learn to read notes...haha! I was apprehensive about taking piano lessons at this stage of life. Lana is the best...she is patient, challenging, supportive, and makes learning fun. She starts you off with songs you enjoy playing and builds to a variety. I've only been playing for a short time and I already have a great mix of popular songs and now moving into classical. She even made learning notes fun with an app she found. You learn and play at your own pace. I've seen her interact with young and old and am impressed with her aptitude of working with each person at their unique skill level. I love learning piano from Lana and I would recommend her to people and children of all ages.

Get ready for a truly rich and rewarding experience. Maria studied at the Moscow Conservatory with Viktor Merzhanov. She is a 4th-generation pupil of Franz Liszt and 6th-generation of Beethoven. She was one of the fortunate few (Garrick Ohlsson among them) to study with Roberto Eyzaguirre, who was a student and friend of Claudio Arrau, one of the 20th-century's greatest pianists. Arrau studied with Martin Krause, who was one of Franz Liszt's final pupils. Liszt was taught by Carl Czerny. And Beethoven was Czerny's teacher. Through this great lineage, learn an incredible technique that will enable you to play the music of your dreams!

About Maria
Maria was born in Moscow, Russia. Her mother was a piano teacher and started Maria playing at 4. She studied at the legendary Moscow Conservatory with Victor Merzhanov. In the US, she won the Houston Symphony Ima Hogg Young Artist Competition and debuted with the Symphony performing Beethoven's Third Piano Concerto. She earned her Bachelor's of Music at the University of Houston.

For her Master's, she studied organ at Rice University with the world-famous teacher Clyde Holloway. She won many national competitions, including Gruenstein Memorial Organ Competition in Chicago and San Antonio Pipe Organ Competition.

The Russian School of Playing has produced some of the world's greatest pianists. This method is fun and lays down the foundation for a relaxed way of playing, which gives confidence and technical security, while enabling one
to produce beautiful "singing" tone on the piano. This helps students of all ages to take their piano-playing to new heights.

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.

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

About Shon
My Name is Shon M.

I was raised in a family that has a tradition of passing the art of music down from generation to generation. I began playing at age 5 and I play 5 instruments professionally and 15 instruments in all. I studied music at Morehead State University and Musician’s Institute. I've been a touring and studio musician since the age of 16. I have been teaching music for more than 35 years. Many of my alumni have gone on to become professional musicians and teachers themselves. My approach to music education is somewhat unique, although it is gaining popularity in the mainstream of music education. I view music more like a language, as opposed to what some have called more of a data entry approach. Don't get me wrong, reading music is important and I do it everyday, but your music lessons should be teaching you how to play a
n instrument, not spending the majority of your time in learning to read right out of the gate. Yes there basics you must learn, but when you were a child, you didn't learn to read as you spoke your first words. You were learning to speak your language long before your learned your ABC's. There are many musicians with little formal training who play an instrument so well you'd swear you can see smoke coming from their fingers. Let me tell you, they weren't born that way. They learned to speak the language of music. The fact is, it's so much easier to learn to read music, after you have a basic understanding of how to speak the language. So say good bye to the frustrations of banging you head against the wall with the complexities of reading music and wondering how much longer you're going to have to endure this ongoing torture before you learn to play something cool, and say hello to having fun while learning how to play an instrument and the songs and styles you want to play...

You may have studied music before and given up because it was too difficult. Please know that's not uncommon. But I’m here to tell you, there is a better way! So if you've ever wanted to learn to play an instrument or sing, there is no better time than now.
