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

Shon is very accommodating to helping you learn at your own pace. He is very patient, encouraging and insightful. Shon is very relaxed which helps me feel comfortable and not feel pressured. He gives reassurance all the time that the "growing pains" of learning guitar are normal things everyone fights through. I would highly recommend him.

Jane is VERY patient and super fun! Our daughter is a tough cookie, but she absolutely adores Miss Jane and has done her best piano work since starting with her. I highly recommend her! And the ability for lessons to be in the home is just beyond convenient.
Lily T.
We had our first lesson with Jane last night. Lily is a tough cookie, but Jane handled her REALLY well. Also LOVE having the lesson in our home. With our busy schedules, it's nice being able to keep my daughter in lessons but not have to trek her to a school.

We're looking forward to a long relationship with Jane (hopefully)!

About Mari

Welcome to my music studio! This will be a fun, incredible way to start or continue your music instruction. I have been a private violin and piano instructor since 1991. I took a break in 2005 while my kids were little. Now that they have grown up a bit, I am so excited to come back to this!

Mari was an awesome instructor, and very kind.
Anne
I absolutely loved learning from Mari for my piano lessons! As an adult learner, I felt like my brain doesn't work as fast as it used to, so learning a new instrument was difficult, but Mari completely caters each lesson to my learning speed and maximized my abilities. She takes into accounts the areas and types of music I wanted to learn and helped me to achieve being able to play that type of music. I also loved and appreciated that she works around my busy work schedule and accommodating lessons when plans change throughout the week. I would highly recommend Mari as a music teacher to anyone interested in learning a new instrument at all ages!

I advocate for student centered learning as well as engagement through play and exploration. Your typical 30 minute lesson would include: Creative movement and stretching, rhythm games, working on repertoire in a variety of unique ways, playing and listening by ear, and learning and putting into practice different music theory concepts. My primary goal is to find what you love to play and work our lessons around that. If you don't enjoy the music you are playing, there is no motivation to practice!
I have been teaching lessons for 5 years and welcome any beginner to intermediate students.

About Anne

I am a current elementary music teacher who is also a professional pianist, singer, and clarinet player. I graduated from Goshen College with a bachelors in Music Education. Students can expect to love lessons and improve immensely in technical skills as well as aural skills (playing by ear). Bei

My daughter has been taking piano lessons with Anne for 5 years. She is an exceptional teacher - patient, fun, and encouraging. She guides improvement through questioning the student and allowing the student to make some choices. Anne makes sure skills are introduced, practiced, and then reviewed repeatedly so understanding and good habits are established and built upon. My daughter is showing continual progress and is becoming more skilled and confident in her playing. Great instructor!

"Contagious Energy, Passion, Fun, and Creativity.

Peter has taught our oldest son for about 2 years and our younger for half a year. Both have enjoyed being able to quickly play recognizable tunes, and the oldest has progressed to playing more difficult and even beautiful pieces.

I appreciate Peter's flexibility to let the students find their style and begin developing their own preferences by letting them choose among numerous potential recital pieces. It builds their confidence and makes them feel like partners in the experience--the very opposite of the stereotypical stern piano teacher.

He also has a great sense of humor. So in any session with my kids I overhear him striking a nice balance between focus and firmness where needed, yet it's frequently punctuated with encouraging high fives and good-natured laughter. He sometimes bets them on whether they can meet a stretch goal and he seems perfectly happy to fork over the 50 cents (or whatever) when they can reach it.

I especially appreciate his preserving some time for composition to allow the kids to cultivate any creative impulses and more deeply understand the structure of music. My youngest broke into a frenzy of writing several tunes after hearing about Peter working on a composition with his older brother. I can't imagine this would have even occurred to him if Peter didn't create this encouraging environment to not just play music, but dare to write it. He sets a great example here by including his own creative works in the recitals, exemplifying both creativity and his strong playing.

Another benefit is the structure he brings with the master classes, and the informal recitals, building up to the more formal ones. The master class he patterned after a collegiate setting, an innovative adaptation to younger students that makes our guys feel like they're part of the greater music scene, where they can critique each other as peers with other kids under Peter's guidance. This gives them something to aim for with enough pacing yet informality that it doesn't overwhelm them, but keeps them progressing. This variety also creates different settings for our boys to learn and perform beyond the formal lessons at home. The master class has not only created a very stimulating learning environment, but has exposed them to a warm community of fellow students whom they sometimes meet separately, such as to prepare duets.

Recently he recognized our oldest son with a certificate for most improved, an example of the more formal type of acknowledgement that helps keep the kids motivated to keep trying. But what motivates them the most is Peter's enthusiastic and contagious energy and love of music. It's clearly his life's work and his creativity inspires.

Beware parents: If you have an interest or an inkling to play yourself, Peter's enthusiasm and encouragement may very well win you over to start--or get back into it. And you'll be glad you did. He's allowed me to resume piano by accompanying my son on duets. And he's indulged my many questions on how to play and lead my sons more effectively. As a result, I've experienced the greatest joy making music with my sons!

Thank you, Peter!"
