Private Piano Teacher

I hold a degree in Music Education and specialize in teaching children piano lessons. I have over ten years teaching experience and also teach voice and guitar. I believe learning music should be a fun and rewarding experience and it brings me great joy to share my passion with my students. I teach the fundamentals of note reading, music theory, ear training, sight reading, and technique. I create a safe environment where students feel able to open up and express their emotions through music and have fun doing it!

Elizabeth was truly amazing!! She was patient and thorough and instilled confidence in just the first lesson. My granddaughter left excited to learn!
Mei K.
My 7 year old took piano lesson after one year of break, but was able to play 1/3 of the song (which she was playing more than a year ago) with both hands nicely after just one lesson with Elizabeth. Magical!
It was the first lesson with Elizabeth and I’m very excited about continuing her fun lesson!

Really great start! I look forward to many fun, valuable, and informative lessons under David's instruction.
Allie
David is not only a delightful person, he's also an excellent piano teacher. I'm a piano teacher myself yet I needed some help with improvisation--my weakest link. He patiently walked me through adding chords and harmony to a melody. I learned a lot of new ideas, such as leaving out the emotive third interval...that's better utilized in the right hand. He demonstrated how to take a familiar classical piece, namely Mozart's Rondo Alla Turca, and play it completely by ear. His musicianship is lovely and he is patient and thorough in his explanations. His knowledge of music theory is complete and sound. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to start or continue music lessons. He is truly passionate about music and his profession.
Andrew
What a great teacher! He was so patient and understanding and really took his time to help me with what I needed. I am in school for audio enginnering and was not getting the help from my instructors that I needed and he came through and made it all way easy to understand and was super chill to work with. I highly recommend him for anything musical that you might need to know and will definatley will be working with him again! Thanks you so much David!

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 .

Within only a few lessons I could tell the benefits of professional instruction, and after the first lesson I could tell Laima is a professional!
Dugan and Jazlyn B.
SO WONDERFUL! My 7 year old was upset I signed him up for piano and after his first lesson he was bummed he couldn’t have piano lessons everyday! She is so kind, patient and teaches in fun ways kids respond to. She had finger families, note families and even small stuffed animals that help them learn. I am so excited to have found her!
Aiden A.
Laima has a very fun way of presenting the basics of piano that is so relatable to younger kids. She’s positive, encouraging, and so personable. We can’t wait for the next lesson.

This is your time to sit with an experienced and kind teacher who enjoys making learning fun. You will learn how to have optimal posture, hand and finger agility and begin to play and read music.
I’ll be looking to incorporate your favorite songs to make your lessons deeper.

About Carolyn

Coming from a large extended family in Hawaii, I was surrounded by luau music, kachi-kachi dancing, Japanese bon dances, handsome local guys singing and playing their guitars and my aunties strumming their ukes and singing old songs. I reveled in walking alone in Nature or playing piano and singing

I had a great time learning to play Van Halen’s “Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love” on the ukulele. Carolyn’s classes covered everything from re-stringing with a lower octave G-string to using butterfly effects, hammers and string pulls on the finger work. It was just what I was looking for.
Jen Smith
Carolyn did a great job of introducing our 8-year-old to signing. She was energetic, patient and fun and made sure to pick music our daughter liked and customized lessons to her interest and level.
Mia L.
My daughter has been asking me for ukulele classes for a while and we found Carolyn online, really liked her profile and we just had the first class yesterday. My daughter had a fun and informative class with a nice follow up practice to do on her own. Carolyn was great, \able to connect with my 7 yr old and made her feel comfortable. She even asked me if we were going to be able to meet her in person one day!

I am a beginner that was stuck with not knowing what to do with the knowledge I had from online sources, ie chords, scales and phrasing. Everything I did sounded the same because of my strumming patterns were all the same. Aimee got right to work in just the right area to help me hear new sounds by different strumming patterns. I am very pleased with Aimee's teaching style and environment. Looking forward to second lesson.

Came in there and learned exactly what I wanted to learn. Was ultra stuck at moving past 8 bars and Aimee helped me get past that. Now I'm finishing full arangements all thanks to her.

Whether you're a beginner or intermediate my piano lessons cater to both!

All ages are welcome! We will definitely learn songs, but in order to truly become an amazing musician you must also focus on building strong technique. Taking lessons with me will ensure that you’ll be able to learn songs and parts by ear. No more tabs! Here’s what we’ll focus on:
- building technique
- transcribing songs and solos
- learning theory
- ear training
- learning to read

Feel free to message me at any time if you have any questions!

"Ilona is an EXCELLENT piano teacher and we are so happy we found her!

My daughter, who is 13, once again loves playing piano thanks to Ilona. About 3 years ago, our first piano teacher moved away, and it was a major challenge replacing her. We tried 3 piano teachers over the past 3 years, before finding Ilona. Ilona is a breath of fresh air, a true professional and has an impeccable teaching style, second to none. My daughter is now practicing every day and can't wait for her weekly hour lesson. It is a pleasure and a privilege to have such an amazing individual teaching my daughter piano! We could not be happier. Ilona is definitely a class act!!"

She also takes the skills he's learned in his music class in school, and builds his skills lessons around his abilities. Finally, she gives homework in a notebook that is clear and measurable, so he knows exactly what to do on his own throughout the week."
