As one of my students, you can come to expect a friendly welcome at the beginning of the lesson and then throughout expect our main goal to be helping you make your best music possible. I possess a wealth of knowledge and skill collected from decades of practice, master classes, winning competitions, earning degrees and performing both in bands and as a solo artist.
I am relaxed and happy, disciplined and product-oriented while at the same time understanding th

For beginning piano students, I use Marilyn Lowe's Music Moves for Piano series. If a student already has purchased piano books or has piano books from an older sibling, I would not ask the student to purchase more books until we had used what they already had to its full capacity. For adults and older beginners, I try to find out what the student is interested in, and guide my instruction accordingly to keep the lessons engaging and fun, no matter their ability level.

About Ceste
I'm a passionate, motivated instructor who loves working with students of all ages. In 2003, I graduated from Bryan College with a Bachelor of Science degree in Music Education with a vocal emphasis and in 2011, I graduated from James Madison University with a Masters of Arts degree in Music Education with a Kodaly emphasis. I have performed in the past with the Fine Arts Chorale of Kansas City, Washington Kantorei, Choralis, Arundel Vocal Arts Society, the U.S. Navy Band Sea Chanters, and the Three Rivers Dulcimer Society.

Ceste is the musical director for my church choir. I have been singing with the choir for several years. Recently, I started having problems with my singing voice because of spasmotic dysphonia.
I described the problems I was having at my first lesson with her. she gave me some physical exercises to relax the muscles in my shoulder and neck. this helped. then she listened to my singing. Ceste developed vocal exercises based on the physical problems. I was frustrated at first, but using the techniques greatly helped my singing.
I have taken voice lessons before; one of the things that I think is great about Ceste is that not only does she explain the exercise, she illustrates it which makes the lessons much easier to do.
I expect to continue with her in the fall.

Aaron teaches piano to my 8 year old daughter, Abby. She is shy but loves piano and she very much looks forward to his visits! He customizes her lessons to her skill level and interests. No question he is a serious musician, but he is also laid back and funny which is perfect for young kids as it puts them at ease. Abby is thriving under Aaron's instruction, I'm so glad we found him!

I understand that each student is different and am accustomed to personalizing my instruction to meet each student's needs.

Child centered piano lessons.

About Monique
Hi there! My name is Monique, and I can't wait to meet you!

I've been teaching since 2010 and have loved helping my students build confidence through music every step of the way! In 2009, I graduated from Kent State University with a degree in Early Childhood Education. I have experience teaching in a large classroom environment and in a one-on-one setting (both online and in person.)

My experience playing piano has been over the course of 15 years, with a mix of classical training and contemporary songwriting. I have had classical recitals and have also performed original songs at shows.

This Fall, I will be attending Berklee College of Music's Online School, where I will be pursuing a second bachelor's degree in songwriting. It is my goal to combine the knowledge and skills I gain from Berklee with my teaching methods, then
share with my students!

My piano lessons are focused on helping beginner students build a strong foundation in music. At any age, my lessons will include a warm and positive environment with creative teaching methods!

I hope to see you in the classroom soon!

Monique taught my 8-year-old daughter introductory piano lessons, and my daughter loved it and loved HER! Monique was so sweet and patient and made piano fun. She assigned homework and things to work on, but she was not too strict and was more than happy to help my daughter try to learn songs she wanted to know. Monique came to our home on a weekly basis and charged a very economical rate. We only stopped lessons when Monique moved away. We highly recommend Monique!!!!

About JunZhao D.

Hello! My name is JunZhao, and I have over 10 years of teaching experience! I teach all ages, of all levels. I specialize in classical piano, but I can be flexible to fit what every student wants to learn. I am fluent in English, Mandarin and Cantonese. If you are interested in picking up piano as a hobby, being a serious player, or just brushing up on your music theory/playing skills, send me a message!

About JunZhao
My name is JunZhao Deng, originally from Guangzhou, China. I am a classically trained pianist, with my bachelor's degree in music education from Xinghai Conservatory of Music and my master's degree in piano performance from Kent State University.

Over the past 10 years, I have taught private lessons to students of all ages and playing levels. Students who study with me can expect to gain a better understanding of music theory as well as technique. I strive to push my students to their maximum potential, and will encourage them to participate in concerts, competitions, etc.

In my career, I have performed in numerous competitions in China, such as the Hong Kong International Piano Competition and the DeYiShuangQing Piano Competition, winning awards such as the Guangzhou Golden Award.

I am personally trained in classical music, but I have
a great respect for all genres of music, and encourage my students to listen and play more than classical.

I took lessons with JunZhao (Ryan) because I wanted to strengthen my technical piano skills and also learn more music theory. He was a great teacher, and taught me a lot about how to make playing the piano feel effortless. Not only was he knowledgeable on the technique, but also on the musicality perspective of playing, and the theoretical side of playing. I would definitely recommend Ryan as a piano teacher for players of any level, but especially beginning and intermediate level pianists.

Piano is the fundamental instrument that is the single most helpful way to learn music, understand theory, and start playing right away! Keeping lessons clear, exciting and focusing on the basic techniques of understanding piano is my number one goal. Not only will students learn the proper techniques and methods but I incorporate popular music and off the book learning to really reinforce musical progress.

About Raleigh
Raleigh K. is a guitarist, songwriter, and teacher from Chicago whose love and serious passion for music began early with playing piano, continuing throughout high school as a guitarist in jazz band and then beginning professionally by performing in the vibrant local Chicago blues scene. This led to studying instrumental performance at Columbia College Chicago with renowned guitar instructor Bill Boris. While studying at Columbia he also privately studied jazz performance with saxophonist Roy McGrath and also chord theory with David Bloom of the Bloom School of Jazz. While attending Columbia he was personally invited to tour and teach with the Blues Kids of America Foundation by Blues Kids founder and Blues Hall of Famer, Fernando Jones.
As an instructor with Blues Kids he has taught and performed at the Fender Center in California, Hous
e of Blues in Disneyland, University of California Irvine and many other camps across the country helping young musicians learn how to work together in an ensemble and perform.

As both a private instructor and ensemble director, he focuses on helping students build a relationship with music through a variety of teaching methods including a classical approach of learning by sight reading if needed, as well as incorporating learning popular music styles and any type of songs for a well-rounded music education experience that helps students start playing right away. Most recently, Raleigh has just returned to Chicago from a six month composition apprenticeship with Berlin-based composer and acclaimed guitarist, Markus Reuter. During the six months, he studied complex practice techniques for multiple instruments as well as an intensive course in generative composition and modern improvisational theory.
