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.

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 Educati

Ceste has a great ear and is willing to meet you wherever you are in your skill level. She cares about what kind of sound you dream of, identifies your natural strengths, and works those into realistic goals to work towards.

She practices using the Alexander Method. Her expertise in how the body affects the voice actually gave me a ton of useful information to successfully identify the cause of some chronic health/pain issues (although she never offers medical advice, I was able to integrate her feedback about what was affecting the quality of my voice into medical care with my Drs).

Thanks Ceste!

She is a really good teacher and teaches you step by step and helps you on things that you have trouble with and shows you ways to improve on something

Ceste is a fine piano teacher! Even though I was 64 when I started taking lessons, she reassured me that I'd do fine! She is very patient and easy to get along with. Always pleasant and very knowledgeable about her trade! She has a vast array of talents for her years!!

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 alot of variety so that they can learn from games, singing, clapping, movement and playing the piano. Of course, singing, clapping, movement and playing the piano are what we all need but without the stickers at the end of your lesson!

About Nancy

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

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!

Nancy is wonderful! She is very patient and encouraging with my 10 year-old daughter. She asks her questions and really listens to her responses which is building her confidence. My daughter is loving her lessons and I couldn’t be happier.

I had the best time taking voice lessons with Josh! I always felt like he was able to meet me where I was and allow me to learn at the pace that made sense for me, while also pushing me a bit where it made sense. I was able to grow as a vocalist without even really realizing it, because I was having so much fun!

Josh and Niki B.
Josh has been teaching our son (14 years old) piano and voice for over a year. He is an exceptional teacher and musician. Our son is really into musical theater and pop music. Josh has done an amazing job getting him playing and singing the music he loves quickly and successfully. He incorporates vocal and piano technique, music theory, and style into the context of pieces of music our son is motivated to learn, practice, and perform. Josh is incredibly smart and personable. He relates well to our son and has built a strong, trusting teacher-student relationship with him. We have also hired Josh to perform at family events for us. He was incredibly talented and professional. We cannot recommend Josh highly enough. He is fantastic!

Joshua was very patient and nice. He worked at my son's pace and helped him feel more confident. We had a great experience!

Great as always!

Had to stop the class within 19 minutes because:
a) he showed a plain chess board with no numbers and letters and was forcing my kid to tell him coordinates/spaces as letters/numbers which my son has never learned before,
b) more importantly, he was extremely impatient with my son- when my son made a move but then immediately changed his mind (he's 6), Josh would be grunting in the background

Not the kind of impatience I would expect with a teacher that claims to be able to teach kids. When I jumped in and said I don't think this is working, he angrily said, "FINE!" NEVER AGAIN.

I have been teaching piano for about 20 years. My specialization is classical music, both European and Russian. Usually I pay a lot of attention to the correct positioning of hands, piano technique, theory and development of the student's musical ear. I work with students from beginner to high intermediate level, starting around age 8. I would be glad to convey to you my love for great ageless music and accompany it with hard workouts to develop finger dexterity. Perhaps your hands will sometimes hurt, but I promise you that you will have fun and be proud of yourself playing Mozart, Tchaikovsky or Chopin. My native language is Russian; I teach in Russian and English.

Natasha is a truly outstanding piano teacher. As a child I took piano several times from various teachers and it was always difficult and boring and I never got anywhere with it. I think this is the experience that many of us have had in trying to learn an instrument. But with Natasha it was completely different. She has been my children’s teacher for about 4 months. They are 6 and 8 years old. Let me tell you, she is magic! Both my kids LOVE playing the piano now. They look forward to their lessons, they are learning to read and write music and my oldest even wrote a simple song without any prompting! She teaches in a way which breaks all the parts of playing the piano very easily and really engages the students. I would say she is the perfect combination of disciplined and caring. She has given my boys a love for music and a genuine interest in playing the piano. This is one of the best gifts I can think anyone could give a child. Our whole family loves Natasha and we are very thankful to have found her. Now I also want to take lessons with her!
