My name is Britta, and I love piano and teaching! Music has brought great joy to my life, and it all started with the piano. I am eager to share that joy and power with you.
I started playing piano before I can remember and began lessons at age 5. I studied under my phenomenal teacher in Minnesota until I moved away when I was 18. I continued playing duets and quartets at her studio anytime I was back in Minnesota. I spent a few years living abroad and at college in Chicago. I taught first graders for a year at LEARN Excel Charter School in Chicago. Now I’ve relocated to Round Lake Beach, where I have a beautiful 80-year-old baby grand piano and a peaceful in-home studio.
When it comes to music, I think it's important to stay relaxed, push yourself, and have fun. Learning to play an instrument like the piano can be a very rich and transformative experience for anyone. Whatever it is you're looking for in learning piano, I'm eager to help and share the gifts my teacher gave me.
I taught a first grade class alongside another teacher. My primary focus was small group instruction in literacy and math.
We tried a group of 5 lessons just to see how it went. By the fourth lessons he seemed to be enjoying them so I asked if she'd like more. She agreed right away but the truth came out later. Turns out that she's not entirely thrilled with piano but she loves the time with Britta.
Britta has a gentle way of guiding the lesson and has incorporated some of my daughter's song interests as well. It's helping to keep her interested and motivated to practice.
It's a win - win in my opinion!
Britta is an excellent teacher, who is able to provide the basic skills and provide the associated understanding for what is being presented.
She was very patient and went at the pace that was right for me.
So far so good! The way Britta explains and instructs our 5 year old daughter is awesome! She is so excited to go back next week and learn more.
Britta is a very nice person , professional
My 9 yo

The perfect teacher
My daughter loves her. Responded very well.
I wasn't sure how this would go because my son is only three and half and a little nervous but she was very patient. He was able to calm down and is looking forward to next week!
She was very patient and my five year old had a great time.

Excellent instructor extremely patient and knowledgeable. And yes, she assigns home work😊😊😊😊.
Our first lesson went very well. The teacher took time to see at what level the students were and gave them pieces to work on. I am sure this will be great! Looking forward to next lesson.
