Overview

Hi ! My name is Daniela and I can't wait to meet you!
I have been teaching piano and theory since 1994 and have loved helping my students discover the beautiful world of music. Seeing my students grow into well rounded and educated people that love art, are able to recognize different styles of music, express their feelings and emotions on this wonderful instrument makes me really happy. My students range from people who simply want to learn how to play proficiently as a hobby to students who are considering making music their future career.
I strongly believe that a chance to go on a big stage and play on a great Steinway piano in front of people, makes a big difference in children's lives: teaches them self control, gives them great sense of accomplishment and satisfaction. Taking part in festivals and piano competitions helps with building high self esteem even more.
I look forward to helping you and your children to reach your goals!

· Piano · In home After my first lesson with Daniela I knew she was the perfect instructor. She was very patient but didn't let you slide when you messed something up. That means a lot as an adult learning to play. If you are looking for an instructor, look no further than Daniela.

· Piano · In studio My daughter has never played a piano before and she was very nervous to start her first lesson. Daniela made my daughter's first lesson very interesting so now Krystal is looking forward to her second lesson w/o being nervous.

· Piano · Online My first lesson went very well. My teacher Daniela was very nice and succinct in her teaching which makes up for the somewhat disconnect online teaching format. The connection via takelesson was very noisy so we switched to using Skype midway and the rest was much better.

· Piano · In home I've been seeing Daniela for piano lessons for a little over two months now. She has been a wonderful instructor and I'm very thankful for the opportunity to learn from her each week. I'm an adult student and it has been a joy to return to playing the piano under Daniela's guidance. I highly recommend her!
