Hi my name is Elana Lawson and I have been teaching piano for 3 years now and playing piano for 9 years. I originally taught myself how to play but I have found that when I took formal piano lessons it helped accelerate my learning and skills. I can now fluently play by memory, by ear, and learn advanced piano sheet music because of my teacher and I hope I can accelerate your learning like my teacher did for me.
I teach beginner through intermediate students of all ages.
The first step in my curriculum (if you are a beginner) is learning basic music theory, hand positioning, and rhythm. Along the way I will test your ability to memorize the sheet music and your ability to know the name of the notes you hear.
I truly enjoy teaching online through Skype or Facetime because it's convenient for me and the student. I also come up with theory exercises or quick quizzes to make each lesson fun.
I expect all my students to practice, practice, practice! I provide all the materials for beginner through intermediate students so you can save money.
Elana is an amazing instructor. She is very patient, professional, and I can tell she cares about what she is doing. She knows how to break everything down so that I can learn how to play the piano in the comfort of my own home. I have been getting better and more confident playing the piano with every session that we have. I would definitely recommend her to anyone!!! Keep it up Elana and thank you for your outstanding service :)+ Read More
We absolutely LOVE Elana! We started out with in person lessons. Her studio is professional, clean and well kept. We had to move to virtual lessons because of our schedules, and Elana hasn't missed a beat! She teaches two of my daughters and the kids adore her. She is great with them. They have learned a great deal about reading music and have several songs under their belts by now. Keep up the fantastic work, Elana! Thanks!+ Read More
