Private Classical Piano Teacher

Above all I want students to enjoy learning the piano. Most people start because they love a certain type of music or wish they could just sit down and enjoy playing. My goal is to make that happen. I teach all ages, beginners and intermediate levels. I think that lessons for children need a lot of variety so that they can learn from games, singing, clapping, movement and playing the piano. Of course, we all need singing, clapping, movement and playing the piano to learn but without the stickers at the end of your lessons!

Playing the piano and loving music has been at the center of my life. Aside from the happiness and fun it can bring, learning an instrument also teaches discipline and confidence which carry over into everything. I enjoy teaching both children and adults. As I teacher I am patient and encoura

Miss Nancy was great!

What a wonderful piano teacher Nancy is! I am in my 50's and learning for the first time. Nancy made me comfortable, explains everything very well and I quickly learned how I needed to place my fingers and where my body should be sitting to play my best. By the time I was finished, I had an understanding of what and where the piano keys were and was capable of playing a simple song. I left with a great feeling of accomplishment. I am eager to continue and learn more!

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!

Maria is the best all-around music teacher I've ever head. She combines deep musicality, technical precision, rigor, and warmth. In just a handful of lessons, she's helped me find a level of ease and expression that I've never experienced with any other teacher.
Tyler
I have felt drawn to the Russian language and culture for many years and had dabbled with learning the language the past year. I really wanted to take my learning process to the next level and really needed that in-person tutoring. Maria has exceeded my expectations. She is patient, beyond knowledgable, Warm-hearted, and radiates a high vibration. She truly teaches the language and culture from the heart. My Russian skills are improving rapidly under Maria's tutorship. When you take lessons from Maria you won't just be her student, you'll be her friend.
Gini D.
I have been studying with Maria for two months and she is the best piano teacher I have ever had. I played piano very seriously as a child, with excellent instruction using the technique of Josef and Rosina Lhevinne. As an adult, I did not play for several decades, so I am returning to piano as an older adult student. In the two months we have worked together, I have made tremendous progress.

The technique Maria teaches emphasizes using the weight of the body to produce sound while keeping the hands and arms relaxed and fluid, which not only produces a most beautiful and expressive tone, but protects the body from injury. Although similar to the Lhevinne technique, Maria’s technique takes it to higher level. Many piano teachers do not teach a technique but, in my opinion, solid technique is critical for an advanced student and best learned from the beginning.

Maria is patient and detail oriented and teaches all aspects piano with mastery. I highly recommend her.

This is a very great teacher. On my 3rd lesson, I was able to read music notes. I'm almost 50, and didn't know I could still learn to play. He is very smart, patient, and knows how to teach. He made learning to play piano seem very easy. I'm blessed to have had him as my piano teacher. Thank you Ryan!!!
Casandra S.
Great teacher! With my first lesson with him, I am very confident that I can learn to play piano fast. He takes it one step at a time.

Learning music is great fun and I love sharing techniques to make learning music as easy as possible. I encourage students of all ages to make up their own melodies and to learn chords, scales, and techniques to improvise. I also help parents to know how to encourage their children to review music between classes so students will progress very quickly. I am grateful to have learned and performed all styles of music and it is my joy to help others accomplish their musical goals. Students from ages 3-6, will need a parent or guardian to directly help with the classes, and elementary students need a parent or guardian nearby in case there is a problem with the internet connection, etc.

"My son Chiraag Nadig has been learning classical piano under Mrs Ruth's guidance for close to 3 years now and we have been extremely pleased with her coaching for my son. She is very kind and adapts very well to the needs of the student. She is extremely good at piano and has taught many intricate pieces to Chiraag. She helped him clear Grade 7 of Trinity with distinction. We would surely recommend her as a teacher who is very skilled, adaptable and easy to work with."
