*** Lesson Details ***
I encourage my students to pursue all types of music. I like to use “method books” to help with reading and music theory no matter which instrument they choose. I always use supplemental materials that follow the student’s interests and level. I often use technology in lessons to motivate and help students grow. For example, I use many apps for theory, note reading, and rhythm training.

A cancellation 24hrs in advance is always appreciated.

Matthew is awesome, I have tried taking lesson twice before and he is by far the best instructor I’ve ever had. It’s nice to know he cares about his student as much as he cares about the music and instrument he is teaching. I would highly recommend him to anyone that is looking for lessons!!!

Matt is great. He is very patient and customizes his lessons to the students needs and interests. We have been using him for over two years and my teenage son has developed a passion for the piano and enjoys exploring and learning new concepts. He has learned the gambit of songs from classical to rock to pop and more. It is a pleasure to see my son take an interest in the piano and great to have a teacher that encourages him. Also,I get the benefit of enjoying beautiful music.

Hello! I am a certified and experienced piano teacher. I have a master degree of music and also have a certificate of Yamaha Music Association. I've been working with all ages of students at schools and studios. Currently, I offer private lessons at my home studio and online.

About Jihye
Hello, future students!

My name is Jihye and I teach Piano and Korean language. I grew up in Seoul, Korea and currently living in LA, California. I graduated Kyung Hee University and earned Master's degree at the California Institute of the Arts.

I have been teaching piano for 20 years and Korean at Korean language schools since 2005. In the past, I have met many K pop and K drama lovers so I decided to share my culture and language with them.

So far I have met many of passionate and enthusiastic students whom I feel very lucky to work with. I offer personalized curriculum to each of my Korean and piano students. Also, help students who prepare piano level exams such as CM, ABRSM, and SATII for the Korean language. I sometimes use clips of songs and dramas to help students who learn Korean.

Are you ready to learn?? Let's beg

I'm a music teacher in DC and also case manage special needs students.

About Charles
Outside of teaching percussion and musical performances I have worked in special education for over 15 years.

My life of music started knee high at the age of 4 playing drums and piano. At the age of 15 I gave my first musical performance, from that stage on I knew my talent had found a home.

In the 11th grade I toured with a local funk group in Washington DC through 26 cities learning music and the life of travel at an early age. During my last high school and college years I performed extensively playing classical, jazz, rock, funk, go-go, gospel, marching band, R&B, and with local rap artist.

Recording credits and highlights include work with Def Jam artist Steady Eddy, recording go-go Mario with Double Agent Rock, and recordings with Little Benny and the Masters.

My other musical passion is teaching. Throughout my col
lege years and beyond I served as a percussion instructor and assistant band director at Morgan State University. As part of the Morgan State University Magnificent Marching Machine I served as a instructional leader in music and performance mentor for the team. I taught part time as a percussion instructor at Milford Mill High School giving individual lessons for over 10 years.

Musical inspiration is an important element to the refinement of my craft. A few personal musical influences are Buddy Rich, Max Roach, Neil Peart (Rush), Dennis Chambers, (Santana), George Gray (Roberta Flack), Ricky Wellman (Miles Davis), Quinton Mack-Davis (Rare Essence) and Michael Bland (Prince).

*** Lesson Details ***
Within the first three months of lessons student will gain a strong foundation of sight reading and basic drum techniques in both rudiment studies and playing the drum set. My style of teaching music consist of breaking each skill down into chunks and allowing students to learn using their individual learning styles. I utilize rewards for perfect practice and each lesson contains a safe, fun learning atmosphere with students exhibiting in their best behavior.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in store front studio, drum kit provided

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will bring a practice pad. Students should have a drum set.

*** Specialties ***

Our son has never played in a marching band before but is interested in playing in the marching band when he attends college in July so we were specifically looking for an instructor who had marching band experience to teach our son since he's never participated in the marching band in high school. We saw Mr. Stewart's profile and decided to have him work with our son. That was the BEST decision that we could have ever made. We have been nothing but impressed with Mr. Stewart. He definitely has the gift of teaching and he is very patient, knowledgeable, and he challenges our son to get better by giving him homework after each session. Our son absolutely LOVES Mr. Stewart and he is always excited for each lesson and to practice what Mr. Stewart has taught him. Our son went from not playing in the marching band at all in high school to making his college band and receiving a scholarship all thanks to Mr. Stewart. We are very grateful for his outstanding teaching and we would definitely recommend Mr. Stewart 100%.

Charles is calm and patient, and yet gently pushes for better and better performance every lesson. As the parent, it is amazing to me to see how much my son has learned in only 3 lessons... and working on a drum set right from the beginning has been very inspiring to my son. We highly recommend Charles!

Having performed jazz, funk, rock, pop, blues, Brazilian fusion, and classical among other genres, I use the fluidity between these inform each of my lessons. Whether a student is a beginner looking to play their favorite song on the radio, an intermediate looking for some music theory to give them more options in their playing, or an advanced player looking for improvisatory techniques, I tailor each session to the desires of each student and their learning style.

About Daniel
I'm a gigging musician and teacher who graduated from Oberlin College in May 2015 with a degree in Musical Studies and Physics. I was on the Division III tennis team there for two years as well. I pride myself on patience and empathy no matter what I teach, whether it feeling the pulse of a complicated drum groove or solving a challenging physics word problem. For music lessons, I strive to bring in a context of genre fluidity and history, so that a student knows where and what to explore on their own even when I am not in the room to show them. Overall, my teaching is all about inspiring students to do well and make their strengths work for them, rather than dryly coming up with the "right answer" or playing a tune the "right way" to get from point A to point B.

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!

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.

I had 12 years of private instruction in a classical manner and I can also play by ear. I like to keep students engaged by teaching in a more circular manner. Connecting the dots and showing how learning scales theory etc enables you to play the contemporary songs you love! I love all styles of music and tailor each lesson to the current knowledge and ability of the student.

About Mallory
My name is Mallory and I just recently moved to Nashville from Los Angeles. I had a roster there of 55 private students of all ages and levels. I am immediately available and I have extensive experience instructing at summer camps, musical theatre, contemporary vocals, songwriting workshops etc. For Private Lessons, I teach a combination of a classical and contemporary approach in all mediums: Piano, Voice, Guitar, Songwriting, Acting, Musical Theater, Audition Prep, Shakespeare etc. Teaching is a passion and a joy so if you're looking for a teacher who cares and will tailor each lesson to the individual student, look no further!

Lana has proven to be a wonderful teacher over the past couple of months since I have been using her. I have a demanding sales job in Florida that requires me to travel by car all of the time. Basically living out of hotel rooms a couple months out of the year, I have not been able to continue my hobbies so easily especially playing the piano. After having a dinner conversation with a co-worker, he mentioned to me that I take online piano classes. He knew of Lana through a relative that recently had a recital that he attended and was impressed with their progress. Sounded like a great idea. I reached out to Lana, put the keyboard in the trunk of the car, and the rest was history! I was a little hesitant of taking online instruction at first but it really has allowed me to continue my hobbies on the road and greater flexibility when I am home as well. The quality of the video streaming works well and I really enjoy the instruction that Lana has provided for me. She seemed to understand my pace of learning and had me fine tuning some technical issues that I was having. I am extremely satisfied with her services and look forward to our instructional sessions. I would definitely recommend her to anyone interested in taking piano lessons online or in person.

I'm a first time piano student at a ripe golden age that thought I wouldn't have to learn to read notes...haha! I was apprehensive about taking piano lessons at this stage of life. Lana is the best...she is patient, challenging, supportive, and makes learning fun. She starts you off with songs you enjoy playing and builds to a variety. I've only been playing for a short time and I already have a great mix of popular songs and now moving into classical. She even made learning notes fun with an app she found. You learn and play at your own pace. I've seen her interact with young and old and am impressed with her aptitude of working with each person at their unique skill level. I love learning piano from Lana and I would recommend her to people and children of all ages.

Learn piano in a way that makes sense to YOUR learning style! I teach student-centered lessons across all genres, meaning you could easily bring in Adele's "Someone Like You" alongside Mozart's Fantasy in D Minor to your lesson. Become a musician with great technique as well as someone who understands the "hows" and "whys" of music with theory integrated into your lesson. If you're wanting to find out more, don't be shy - just send me a message!

I've taught all levels and all ages over many many time zones - I understand online learning can be a leap for some, but every student has expressed how amazing it is that they can learn at the time they want, in their own home, with the teacher they chose hundreds or thousands of miles away!

About Breanna
--- To-The-Point Bio ---

With 15+ years of experience, I am a learner-centered educator and Artist-Teacher-Scholar with a genuine interest in student engagement and cognitive growth. In our lessons, I strive to create motivating and rewarding learning environments through effective communication and a keen sense of student needs. Teachers are only as great as their students, which is why I encourage self-driven learning through example.

Below is a lengthy bio of my life as professional hornist (I'm currently principal horn of the State Opera in Stara Zagora, Bulgaria) with a little overview of my professional life. To briefly summarize the full extent of my musical experiences: over the years, I've been lucky enough to come across almost any performance job you could throw at someone - I was a keyboard player in an experimental i
mprovisatory funk band, have been a faculty accompanist at a university and a Suzuki class accompanist, have been a collaborative pianist for all sizes of chamber ensembles (vocal and instrumental), have performed in Jordan Hall on accordion giving a world premiere of a local Boston composer's work, busked the streets of my college town and played weddings on accordion, taught fifth grade, junior high, and high school band and choir at a public school, and helped create an educational outreach ensemble, to name some of the most memorable. Music is a very personal journey, I've come to realize, which is why lessons are always student-centered and planned according to your needs.

--- Lengthy Bio ---

Breanna Ellison, lauded for performances "flawless in execution and vivid in characterization" (Boston Musical Intelligencer), is a dynamic and highly sought-after horn player throughout the Midwest and East Coast. Breanna has played with numerous groups throughout the US, including Boston's conductorless chamber orchestra A Far Cry, the Kansas City Symphony Orchestra, the Ad Astra Festival Orchestral, Michael Tilson Thomas's New World Symphony Orchestra, the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra, Radius Ensemble, the Topeka Symphony Orchestra, and currently plays in the Hays Symphony Orchestra, among others. Recently, she served as principal horn with the Geneva Light Opera in their production of Così Fan Tutte, acted as section coach and chaperone in the Boston Youth Philharmonic Orchestra for the 2015 European Tour, and this summer served on faculty at the High Plains Music Camp as a collaborative pianist and hornist.

Equally at home in symphonic, opera, and chamber music worlds alike, Breanna has performed in music festivals across Europe and the United States. In 2011, she served as principal horn at the Eutiner Opernfestspiele in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. She attended the Colorado College Music Festival in summer 2012, and later that summer attended the Ameropa Chamber Music Festival in Prague, Czech Republic. While in Prague, Breanna performed with an international chamber group that took second place in Ameropa's International Concertante Competition. The quartet performed Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante K295b in the Czech Philharmonic's Rudolfinum, Dvořák Hall with Camerata Filarmonica Bohemia. In the summer of 2015, by invitation, Breanna studied with world-renowned hornist and pedagogue Frøydis Ree Wekre in Oslo, Norway.

Holding performance degrees in both horn and piano from the University of Kansas, Breanna attended the Cortona Sessions for New Music in Cortona, Italy as a pianist in 2010. There, she met kindred spirits amongst the composers attending and later that year, invited them to Kansas to hear their commissions performed by her brass quintet, the Lawrence 5. The concert served as both premieres of their works and as a benefit concert to aid in the building of schools for girls in Pakistan and Afghanistan through the Central Asia Institute. While at the University of Kansas, Breanna was a recipient of the Zakoura Collaborative Pianist Scholarship. Much of her pianistic time was spent collaborating with instrumentalists and vocalists from all realms, often in premieres of new works by colleagues in composition. Regarding hornistic studies while studying at KU, she was assistant then fourth horn of the Topeka Symphony Orchestra, the first job she won at age 20.

Breanna graduated with honors from the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, MA under full Presidential and Merit scholarship with her master's degree in horn performance, studying with James Sommerville, principal horn of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. During her time there, she also earned her Music-In-Education Concentration under the guidance of movement-founder Larry Scripp. She received her undergraduate degrees from the University of Kansas School of Music in horn performance, studying with Paul Stevens, and piano performance, studying with Jack Winerock. Breanna is currently Interim Professor of Horn at Fort Hays State University and continues to be a collaborative pianist at the University and throughout the state of Kansas. When not pursuing musical endeavors, she enjoys creating raw desserts, planning her worldwide backpacking trip, and learning mad, Balkan rips to busk with on accordion.

I had next to no piano experience before Breanna started teaching me. In one semester, I was fluent in scales and common chord progressions. Because of her lessons, my Piano Tech classes for my Music Performance degree are a breeze. Breanna easily incorporates ear training, theory, and history into her lessons. She’s extremely knowledgeable in many various areas of music. I give her my full and strongest recommendation.
