Overview

Hi! My name is Esther, and I can't wait to meet you. Please send a message my way.

I have played piano since I was 4 years old and have taken lessons from wonderful teachers. They have given me a strong foundation in music, from theory to musicality. I learned warmups and scales to strengthen my technical skills but was also taught to play music expressively as well.

I participated in recitals and competitions year after year and completed the advanced level in Certificate of Merit as a senior in high school. My hope is that I can give all my students a solid foundation so that they can enjoy developing in piano for many years to come.

Currently I also work with children as a speech-language pathology assistant and ABA therapist, so I have experience with children who have special needs.

I am:
// Classically trained
// Resourceful
// Patient
// Flexible and adaptable
// Dependable
// Sensitive to individual needs
// Detail-oriented and organized

Esther is a great teacher. Although I had been playing piano for over 5 years, I was extremely lacking in my music theory and sight-reading skills. Esther taught me lots of useful tricks and strategies to sight-read faster and more efficiently. I would definitely recommend her.

Esther is an experienced pianist. I'm at level 3 and I had some major gaps in my music theory background. I've recently decided to continue piano lessons with Esther, especially with regards to learning music theory. She has been very helpful with all my theory questions and often tests me to solidify my understanding. I'm grateful to have Esther as a teacher. She's experienced, dedicated, patient, caring, encouraging, and helpful. She's able to teach contemporary as well as classical pieces. Recommend.
