My approach to teaching piano is simple and flexible. I work with the unique learning styles, interests, and goals of each student. If you’re a beginner, I’ll get you started quickly with the basic skills. From there, we’ll explore new music, building your skills along the way. We’ll follow a method book and supplement with other music as well as scales, ear training, theory, performance skills, and more. I’ll be attentive to your needs and interests, and am always open to suggestions.

About Britta Y.

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.

Britta was so encouraging for my 8 year old nephew who is just starting out on the piano. She's flexible (had to reschedule a couple of times) and kind which creates a comfortable learning environment.

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!
Thanks, Britta!

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!

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.
