In our lessons, beginning students will learn to read music, play their favorite pieces, how to do warm ups and learn basic skills. I use sheet music and introductory books in my classes and assign homework for their daily practice. After 3 months, each student will move to the next level and continue learning more advanced skills. More advanced students will learn how to understand and compose music, put expression into the pieces they play and improve their current skills.

About Lena
I have been playing piano since I was a young child and have always had a passion for music. I apprenticed in China under a master piano teacher for 15 years and then immediately started performing in many different venues. 18 years ago, I started teaching piano and have enjoyed sharing my love of music with others. I am very patient with students and am very open to the type of music they would like to play. From pop music to classical, beginning to advanced, I am well versed. If there is a specific piece you want to play, I can fit it to your level. In my lessons, I try to make each experience meaningful and joyful.
I am also available giving personalized lessons online nationwide. Looking forward to meeting you and sharing the joy of music in person and online.

More advanced students will learn how to understand and compose music, put expression into the pieces they play and improve their current skills.
I especially emphasize in basic skills, such as recognizing the notes, reading the notes, understanding the meanings of the dynamics, and expressing oneself through each individual piece. Moreover, the basic performance skills are also occupied very heavily in each lesson, such as scales, triads in single notes and octaves, in slower speed and gradually into faster speed, and of course, different levels of etudes to build a strong base for each student to achieve his/her beautiful performance.

Lena is an incredible teacher! I played piano as a child and started taking lessons after 14 years of not having played to bring back my skills and make sure I don't develop bad habits. With Lena's help, I have been shocked at how quickly my technique came back! She is incredibly patient but a stickler for correct hand/wrist position, phrasing, and dynamics. I highly recommend Lena to piano players of every age and skill level!

My 7-year old son has been learning piano with Ms. Lin for 3 months. I am amazed by his display of interest in music and the progress made within such short a time span. Ms. Lin's patience, skill, wealth of knowledge and passion about music stand her in good stead as a music/piano teacher. I highly recommend her.

As a theorist, piano came natural from a guitar playing background after taking the interval structure of a common chord and incorporating both the left and right hand to explore the same techniques. I do best with requests and start from whatever level my student is coming from. I do everything from Beginning songs to Classical, Rock and modern Pop or Country.

Beginner, Intermediate, and Early Advanced Piano - I use the Faber Piano Adventures series. Students will learn the basics of piano technique and musicianship. While practice is the key to success, I also try to instill the student with a deep appreciation of the music we are studying. Within 6 months, students will begin to play basic songs/pieces from the repertoire. At this point, I will often let the student pick the music he or she wants to learn.

About Evan
Dr. Evan M. is a pianist and composer who just move to Alexandria Virginia. He teaches piano, composition, and music theory lessons in the greater Washington area. He serves as the Music Theory Chair at Levine Music and teaches a private piano studio of passionate young students and adults.

Born in Long Beach, CA he began his musical studies at an early age, performing on piano, French horn, trumpet, and steel drums. He wrote his first compositions for PanDrumonium – his middle-school steel drum ensemble. Later on, in high school, he continued to perform, in additional to writing songs and arrangements for various rock bands and jazz ensembles.

While pursuing his undergraduate degree, Evan decided to focus on classical composition – in 2007 he received his B.M. composition from Chapman University in California. During this time he
studied piano under Karen Knecht. He went on to receive his M.M. in composition from California State University, Northridge (CSUN). At CSUN, he taught courses in music theory and music history.

In 2009, Evan moved to Maryland to pursue his doctorate in composition at the University of Maryland. Since receiving his degree he has taught courses in music theory and composition at American University, Hood College, Towson University, and VCU.

Evan’s compositions have been performed throughout America and abroad. His work has been featured in performances by the Aspen Contemporary Ensemble, the Nimbus Ensemble, the Great Noise Ensemble, the Calyx Quartet, and the University of Maryland Percussion Ensemble. Evan’s chamber opera, The Last Act of Revolution, was presented by New York City Opera’s VOX 2012; the opera was premiered earlier in the year by the University of Maryland Opera Studio. His orchestra piece, Fire Music, was premiered by the Minnesota Orchestra in January of 2015.

Music Theory - I offer tutoring for the AP Music Theory exam and other high school/college-level music theory courses. We will work from your class textbook and will gear sessions towards comprehensive review as well as focusing on specific skills that need improvement.

Song-Writing/Composition - I work with budding composers and songwriters to improve their musical notation, melodic, harmonic, and text-setting skills. I work with students who are interested in both classical and popular genres. More advanced students study orchestration and counterpoint.

I've been teaching piano for over 20 years and my students have gone on to major in music in college, become music teachers, and become lifelong lovers and players of music.. Within the first few lessons, you'll become comfortable at the piano keyboard and as time goes on you'll be able to play a variety of music in various styles. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About David
Hi, there! My name is David B. and I look forward to meeting you! I've been teaching private lessons since 1993 and have loved helping my students learn music in a way that not only increases their skill and knowledge, but also builds self esteem, allows for creative expression of themselves and creates lifelong music lovers. I went to St. Vincent College and earned a degree in music education, with a voice concentration and studies in piano and organ, in 1998. I'm a positive, helpful person and my teaching style is demanding yet patient. I strive to push students to be their very best, yet am patient while working to overcome the stumbling blocks we all encounter when learning. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

I was hesitant to start piano lessons but David has been amazing. He's an extremely friendly and patient teacher but the thing that has me rank him so highly is the fact that he always celebrated my successes and never berated for not getting as far as we hoped. For me that was important in an instructor. Also he is totally fine with me bringing in music to learn even if it isn't always the best stuff to learn from.
In short David is the kind of teacher that makes each lesson enjoyable and really helps you learn what's important to you. He has 35 years of experience so you can throw just about anything at him and he'll know what you're talking about. I can't recommend him enough if you are looking for a piano teacher in person.

David is an excellent teacher due to his cheerful attitude, his patience, and his ability to identify the issue that is hampering progress. I picked him specifically due to his years of experience and I can confirm that he is extremely knowledgeable in musical theory and good at explaining it as well. The only issue he might have is that he can be a bit talkative although personally I find it endearing. I Would highly recommend him to anyone that learns best through positive reinforcement.

First, we'll talk about your goals and what you want from the lessons. If you're a beginner, within the first few lessons, you'll be playing simple songs with both hands. I have been playing the piano since I was 6 and started teaching lessons at 16. I love teaching beginning and intermediate students. I typically use the Alfred books depending on age. I focus on a strong music theory foundation and solid practice techniques. We'll use audio and/or video recording to make sure you have an example to take home with you to practice with each session. I can't wait to meet you!

About Betty
I have worked as a registered nurse for 29 years and have taught nursing in the academic setting for ten years. I love working one on one with nursing students and have been asked to tutor many times over the years. If you're struggling with ABGs, Maternal Newborn or just need help overall to pass that do or die exam, come see me!

As for music, I have played the piano since I was 6 years old and have taught lessons on and off for the last 35 years (depending on my work schedule as a nurse). My training is in classical piano, but I have expanded to contemporary piano and piano accompaniment for soloists and choirs. I received organ training in college and have played many years for my local congregation. As for vocal training, I started at age 14 and have sung as a soloist and in various choirs. I love working with beginners and i
ntermediate students.

If you have questions, please let me know. I'd love to help!

About Ruthy
I have been playing the piano for over twenty years. I began at the early age of seven years old. Because piano has played such a vital role in my life, I believe it is a responsibility of mine to pass on such a delightful gift of piano playing to those who would like to make it a part of their life too.

I have spent over ten years teaching piano in different areas. This includes a piano lab for a private school, a music studio, and at my home. Throughout the past ten-plus years, I’ve had the privilege to teach over 250 students. I have had over a dozen large recitals with crowds each time of over 150 people.

Not only do I have piano experience, but I also have studied the art of teaching by earning my bachelor of science in elementary education.

My passion is music and being able to teach others to play the piano. I love seeing
the progress of students and the light that comes from learning their favorite piece.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you on your piano playing journey!

First time playing piano? Resuming after years of not playing the piano? No matter your age or experience, you can always learn and improve.

About Bill
I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

I enjoy tutoring and helping other overcome problems that I have encountered myself because it enhances my own understanding and makes me happy that my self-studying is helping others. Sometimes, my students even bring up alternative ways of thinking that I have never thought of before!
