Lesson Details

Classical Piano

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
I teach piano holistically, encouraging a well-rounded knowledge of the piano and various genres of music. Along with technique, I encourage the student's exploration of the piano by improvisation. As a sight-reading lover, I also teach sight-reading so students can easily discover pieces on their own. I want students to develop the proper foundations to discover music at their own leisure.

Our daughter had her first lesson today. Elisa was great. She is very good with children and understood how to present the material in an intteresting way to our 8 year old. I was honestly surprised how little chatter I heard from my daughter during the lesson because she was so engaged!

We just had our first lesson with Elisa. She appeared to be really engaged with our 6 year old. And our daughter said she really liked her lesson afterward!

Elisa is just awesome with my 7 year old. I can see that she thoroughly enjoys her lessons and has made good progress very quickly.
