With 35 years of experience teaching all ages, I love seeing success in my students. I teach classical, jazz, pop, and Christian music. I am also a director of music at a church and I compose and arrange music as well. I continue to perform in local bands in addition to my church job, and with my extensive experience in education I am able to tailor lessons to each individual student based on their needs and goals. I make the lessons enjoyable, and I believe fully that everyone can learn to play the piano, which is a skill that you can use for a lifetime of fun!

Russian and Ukrainian are my native languages. And of course to explain, to help with the understanding of the specifics of this language it is easier for the native speaker. I was learning English and other languages in University of International Relations Kharkov, Ukraine and have the private lesson experiences. With great pleasure I will bring my knowledge to our lessons and put a lot of effort and positive energy. You will be able to get to the level you need for your communication.

I'm an experienced teacher, performer, and songwriter/producer. I teach piano and voice to beginning and intermediate students of all ages!

My students learn not only learn to play or sing the songs they're most interested in, they also learn about the music theory behind the songs, so they can flex their own creativity! I also have music industry experience and can teach students about songwriting, live performance, home recording, production, self-promotion, and forming a band.

Christina really listened to what I wanted to get out of the lessons and catered her instruction for that. She was also very encouraging and made me feel good about what I had learned on my own before starting lessons with her.

Francesca is wonderful. My son has developed a love of learning piano and reading music. He looks forward to every lesson. I have never had to remind him to practice- he seeks opportunities to share what he is learning and is eager to share his progress with Francesca every week. She is supportive and motivating. I know she loves to develop a love music in her students by her obvious dedication to developing their love and understanding of music.
Nicole L.
My 7 year old son won't stop singing so I figured I'd put him in some lessons. She's a good mix of patient and fun while still keeping him on track. I thought it would just be a lot of scales, but she teaches him all aspects about singing/performance and uses his favorite genres to teach them. Excellent instructor!
Andrea D.
I've been working with Francesca for a few months now, and I feel I've grown so much. Prior to this I've sparsely attempted to play instruments, but she has taken her knowledge and passion and been able to pass that on to me while constantly reminding me that one day I will be good. And I believe it! I've come a long way to establish a regular practice routine, still working on it with her, and I have high expectations for the future. I recommend her to my own people and I recommend her to you.

When learning guitar with me I make sure the curriculum is custom fitted for you! All student's aren't the same, and it is important you find a teacher who teaches in a way that speaks clearly to you. Achieving your goals is my top priority, and making sure you have fun learning along the way is my passion!
