About Isabel M.

Hello and thank you for visiting my profile!

I am a musician and certified piano teacher accredited by Music Teachers National Association (MTNA) founded in 1876. My piano teaching studio is based in Westfield in western Massachusetts, and I offer online lessons to beginner-intermediate students of all ages.

An everyday piano lesson with me incorporates fun educational games and apps, piano improvisational activities, music theory learning, and, of course, plenty of enjoyable music to practice at home! I have a repertoire-rich approach to teaching and enjoy nurturing singing and composing abilities in my students as they grow at the piano.

A little bit more about myself is that I earned my B.A. degree from the College of Arts and Sciences at Cornell University in New York, and I focused on music studies at Mannes School of Music and at Hunter College, as a second degree music major at the latter college. Last year, I celebrated my 10 year anniversary of music teaching, including seven years of piano teaching experience. My personal piano teachers have included celebrated concert pianist, Xiayin Wang, and my own performance career spans over fifteen years and counting.

I also have experience working with a wide range of students, including students with special needs, and so welcome inquiries from parents with children with needs, such as high-functioning autism.

It would be my privilege to help you or your loved ones embark on a journey of music and wonder at the piano. Check out my availability and reach out! Please kindly take note that my calendar of availability refers to Eastern Standard Time only.

I would love to hear from you. Se habla español!

I began my journey with piano as an adult and I could not be happier! Isabel really cares about her students and wants them to succeed. She is very knowledgeable and passionate about the piano. Her positive attitude and gift for teaching piano has helped me come so far in just 6 months. I would highly recommend her.

having taught in the same school as Isabel I was able first to see her positive interaction with students of all ages. She is organized and well prepared. Isabel is very professional and passionate and is more than qualified as an instructor.

I actually don't play the piano but Isabel also plays the guitar and she gave me some tips how to play my ukulele. She was very patient with me and this probably translates to her teaching other instruments.

Isabel is such a very talented lady! When I met her a few years ago, I only had a touch of such talent. I love learning so many cultural things from her through our friendship. She has a beautiful gift of music, art, languages and much more that she continues to share with others and I am very grateful to be one of those receiving her amazing gifts!

Isabel is a superb teacher who brings out the best in her students! They come in with a rudimentary knowledge of music and, over time, their musical abilities come to flourish thanks to her patience, encouragement, dedication and insight.

Isabel is a talented, caring, driven, and warm teacher whose passion for music radiates out into her love for her students. In this way music becomes a reflection of generosity for Isabel, a way of connecting people. Highly recommended.
