Private Piano Teacher

I teach piano in the same manner in which I teach every instrument. First I teach students the rudiments of the instrument. Also I teach them how to read and a bit of music theory. From that point I like to follow the students lead. They bring in songs that they would like to learn, or possibly how to play a certain style like Funk, or Blues, or how to approach a classical sonata. At every point I try to point out general aspects of music that need to be learned from the material that they choose.

About John

Hello, Thanks so much for taking the time to inquire about studying music with me. Music and studying music has always been a passionate experience for me. I have been so blessed with the teachers and fellow musicians in my life. You should realize that your study of music may start with me,

Reading of music and basic piano technique are emphasized, incorporating aspects of music theory and musicality.

About Kathryn

Kathy believes that variety is the spice of not only life, but also music. Raised singing folk music with a musical family (think accordions, guitars and lots of vocal harmonies), she learned guitar and piano at an early age, but began singing even earlier. Her quest to give the world the best

Amazing!!! A bright, joyful light!

My experience with Kathy has been great. It's been roughly five months and I learned a lot and I'm also much more confident to sing. Learning the right techniques is crucial. Kathy is extremely patient and she adapts the classes to the student goals and aspirations. English is not my first language and she was also always very respectful and patient in explaining everything twice or maybe three times until I get it.

Kathryn has a terrific demeanor, and provides clear, thoughtful suggestions for technique!

I am a classically trained pianist with 10 years of experience.

Learn your favorite pieces and learn to love the piano.

I have a relaxed teaching style that breaks down the basics of the piano and makes lessons fun.

It can all seem so daunting, but it's really all about three things: notes, fingers & timing. Once you know those you're on your way, and what you know you'll never forget.

About Thomas

I’m a Brit living in America. I’m a classically trained pianist who has been playing for 30 years and teaching for 10. My lessons are tailored for each student, based on their skills and their learning objectives. Above all, they’re laid back and fun – you don’t learn much of anyth

I teach sight reading, the ability to play a new piece perfectly without any practice the first time played. I also teach the classical go through books learning harder and harder songs each week. I also teach improvisation the cording method the ability to play ez-play music and make it sound like you have been studying piano for twenty years after only a couple of years. 46 years teaching experience with a Masters in Education.

About William

Our goal and ability is to teach you to play at a six-year level after 3 months of lessons. For your information: Are online lessons as effective as in-person lessons? Although there are some differences, multiple studies on distance learning, including this study from UNC, have shown that student

Mr. Young was an incredible man to learn from. After taking 3 lessons from him I could tell that he has a rich history in music and teaching and has a legitimate love for music. I had to discontinue my lessons due to a move out of state but i would recommend him to anyone.
Ryan
I have always struggled with site reading Mr. Young made it easy. Me. young is the best teacher I have ever had.
Julie
When I came to Bill I had hopes and dreams of having the ability to read and play any kind of piano music. As a child I struggled with reading music during 3 years of lessons with a strict classical teacher, but held on to the dream. I have waited over 50 years to live the dream I am fulfilling now. Bill had me reading and playing any piano arrangement I wanted in 3 months. I play classical, gospel, movie themes and more and loving it all. His unique teaching method inspires you with an "I can do this" attitude. He analyzes who you are, your own style and abilities and raises the bar with every lesson. As I play, he shows me how to enhance my performance with every note. He couples insight with knowledge and his 30+ years of experience to create a true pianist. He tells me I am the composer when I play, own the music. He tells me "don't just play the music, become the music". After 2 years of lessons I am living my dream and preparing for concert level opportunities. Whether young or old (I am 73 years old), Bill can inspire and teach you to play. I often wonder where I would be in the music world if he would have been my childhood teacher. I highly recommend Bill to start your child's music foundation on the right track or for yourself - to live your dream too. Thank you Bill for all you do and who you are!
