I've been teaching music and piano performance for over 20 years and my students have gone on to win international competitions and be major in piano performance at college and Universities. I have recording experience with very young children and adults. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play professionally and record your pieces and as time goes on you'll be able to build up your own digital repertoire. I specialize in piano performance and music Theory/musicology, typically use the Suzuki Method for very young beginners and Musilanguage books. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Antonella is an AMAZING teacher. I am an older adult student, with no music theory or background. She is very patient, accommodating, and uses very useful analogies that help me visualize what to do in a way that helps me learn and remember. My own weakness is in making time to diligently practice. I look forward to each lesson, and give her my highest recommendation.

Our experience with Antonella has been wonderful. She has high standards but is also extremely patient with young students. My daughter has learned beautiful technique but more importantly, she has expanded her mind, improved her sense of discipline and commitment and learned to play piano with a feel for the music. Working with Antonella is fantastic for the student and their parent/guardian. It's a joint effort. I highly recommend Antonella

Antonella taught me (female age 35) and my son (age 11) piano for about 1-2 years. She was patient with us and very flexible with our busy schedule. The only reason I could not give her 5 stars is she is the only teacher we ever had and therefore unable to compare. I would highly recommend her to family/friends.

Antonella is a phenomenal teacher and motivator. My two children - Jacob 14 and Corinne 12 have been taking lessons from her for over 4 years and have grown to play very well and just as important love playing the piano thanks to her patient and skilled teaching style.

Antonella is a wonderful piano teacher! She is very passionate about piano teaching to young kids, very patient and encouraging to kids. She is one of the hardest working teacher I have ever met! My son has learned so much piano from her during the years.

Antonella is an incredible instructor with a gift for working with children. Her ability to teach along with allowing the children to enjoy and understand the importance of music theory is beyond any instructors in this area. She is always flexible and willing to do what is necessary to ensure each child is well taken care of.

Antonella is an amazing teacher. She is dedicated and patient. My son has been with her for years and has grown and learned so much. She really puts her heart and soul into helping her students grow to their full potential. We couldn't ask for more!

Very inspiring. Antonella helped me realize just how much I needed to learn. She did this in a very encouraging way. I'm looking forward to my next lesson

Antonella has been teaching piano to my two daughters (ages 8 and 12) for a number of years now. They have progressed terrifically during that time and really enjoy learning from her. She has a gentle approach but also keeps the girls focused and accountable which is important. They have had multiple opportunities to perform in recitals and competitions that are always enjoyable as well. Antonella is a excellent teacher that I would highly recommend.

My 7 year old daughter started taking piano lessons this year with Antonella. I am amazed that within such a short period of time she has learned so much. She has progressed from 'Mary had a little Lamb' to really beautiful more complex pieces in what seems like no time.
Antonella is a really excellent teacher, very patient and supportive, yet constantly pushing (gently) to make the student better. She is an incredible pianist herself and really encourages Aoife not just to learn and play the notes, but to really use good movement and techniques which make such a difference to the sound of the piece.
Antonella is professional, committed, highly skilled and very passionate about what she does. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her as an amazing piano teacher.
