Although I stopped my piano lessons a while ago due to some personal issue, I really enjoyed my learning process with DeAnna. She organized her lessons very well and made me progressing every week. She's a really good teacher. Love her!
Daniel
Most single productive day I’ve had at the piano.
Martin
DeAnna has excellent credentials as a pianist and music theorist, but more importantly for me she is a patient teacher and good communicator who works hard to ensure that I learn and understand even the most basic skills and techniques. She is also fun to talk to and be with, and her love of music is infectious. She is an excellent teacher for an older student, and I imagine for younger ones too.

BEGINNING PIANO and VIOLIN - The foundations of music require many skills layered on top of one another. We will start by learning fingering, note names, and short pieces. The students will be making music even from the beginning. The lessons will progress from learning by rote to reading music. We will incorporate clapping rhythms, singing, and musical games.

INTERMEDIATE PIANO and VIOLIN - We will focus on refining technique, sight-reading, music theory, and building an exciting repertoire of music that they love to play and can share with others.

I look forward to meeting you!

Brandon is a great teacher! He connected immediately with my daughter and he has her excited about learning piano again. So happy I bought a lot of lessons in my package!
Tammy Wagner
Mr Brandon is a rare find as a music teacher. His passion for music and love of teaching are visible with every teaching session. His focus is first and foremost on the student, recognizing unique abilities and areas of challenge.

He is a skilled "growth mindset" instructor, his focus remains on continued progression and tackling difficulties as opportunities. He invests heavily in the relationship with the student allowing them to grow and explore in a supportive environment.

Our son has ADHD and has struggled with in some learning environments. I have been absolutely impressed with Mr Brandon's ability to adapt and create a positive music lesson even if he was having a "not very focused " day !

Music is a wonderful gift, especially for children with ADD/ADHD or other learning challenges, especially with a skilled teacher !

There teaching style has provided a structured environment with very patient, encouraging tone so the most timid of students will want to learn. Students with learning challenges have done well with their program. Periodic recitals and music competitions are scheduled during the year to showcase each students learning accomplishments. Both Tim and Sally are loving people and would welcome anyone who desires to learn piano, guitar, violin, and voice from their experienced teachers."

"As an adult student it was hard for me to finally commit to finally taking piano lessons. I always had the excuses that I was either too busy or too late in life to start.

Julie has gave me every reason to throw those excuses out the window. After a month of lessons I can already tell an improvement in my reading of music and knowledge of music. She knows how to making things easy for me to understand while also balancing that with a great challenge.

I have very high expectations and goals set for myself, that many would say are "too high". But I have no doubt Julie will get me to where I want to go!

100% would recommend to anyone."

"Dylan is ADHD (which may not have been noted); but he has a hard time keeping up sometimes. Thank you so much for your time. I, the parent, listened in (having not had him in an online lesson before) and learned a few "tips" I can use with him as he continues his practice.
If the situation was different (financially), we would be happy to continue with lessons. I think with time my son would adapt to your style in comparison to the local "church pianist" from who he previously took lessons."

5 Games for Teaching Kids Piano

Piano is considered an umbrella instrument, meaning, teaching kids to play piano helps them understand music more thoroughly, no matter what instrument they want to play later on. Even most singers first learn the basics of music theory and notation on the piano. Piano lessons at an early age lay out the basics of music-making in black and white (quite literally!). The great news is that you don't need to know anything about playing piano to inspire your children to want to learn. Below are a ha …
