About Renee

I have been teaching piano to students of all ages for the past 26 years. I studied piano at St. Bonaventure University under Laura Peterson. I have accompanied many in talent shows, and competitions. I presently play the piano at our church. I have taught students that have gone on to higher learning in piano. Some of my students have competed in nationwide festivals and placed well. They have entered local and statewide contests. They placed well in their categories. I believe that each student should have goals for their talent. I want to work with the student's goal to achieve their very best. I believe each student is a unique individual who will become a performer according to the practice that they put into it I am looking for students who want to have fun while ...

Nicholas is very accommodating to a student like me. While I have some background in piano, I'm lacking in key areas. Nicholas is able to tailor his lessons to my lopsided needs. He's also a great guy!

Hello everyone! I am a drum teacher and performer from the Chicagoland/Northwest Indiana area and am new to takelessons.com. I am a member of the Vic Firth Education Team, the Percussive Arts Society and the Jazz Education Network, and take my students very seriously. I have learned from many great musicians and top teachers including Tom Hipskind, Frank Donaldson, Ruben Alvarez, Chris Coleman, Peter Erskine, and several others.

Currently, I am teaching about 20 students a week, and gig out 3-5 times a week, but I am looking to expand my business. Any student under age 6 needs to have a free consultation/meeting to see how well they can hold
