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.

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 !

Private Piano Teacher

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!

Private Piano Teacher

I provide every student with different pieces according to his/her age and individual abilities. Each student has a different learning speed and level of enthusiasm which needs to be taken into account. With young children I find it helpful to integrate games, stories and pictures to enliven the lesson. I try not to be too strict, but I expect my students to practice at home and not to miss lessons. I use a number of books and methods. After 3 to 6 months a young student will have learned at least 12 notes on the staff, to sight-read easy pieces, to understand count rhythm values, and to play simple songs .
