Learn how to play the difficult notes in classical piano with lessons from a piano specialist
Experienced teacher of 3+ years, working with students of all ages, specializing in beginner and intermediate piano lessons. I work hard to instill a strong foundation in music theory, sight-reading, and technique across all students so they can succeed after completing their studies with me. Because helping each individual student realize their musical potential is most important, I personalize my lessons for the variety of students I encounter. I'm excited to meet you where you are at and help you achieve your own personal goals.
About Joi H.

I am a professional composer and vocalist, as well as a private piano instructor with a Bachelors in Music Composition and Music Technology Minor from George Mason University. I'm currently pursuing a Masters in Music Composition from Longy School of Music. In all my lessons, I work with students of all ages and focus on building a strong foundation. I have played piano for several years, playing for years in the church. I specialize in beginner and intermediate piano lessons and work hard to instill a strong foundation in music theory, sight-reading, and technique across all my students so that they can be successful after completing studying with me. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student. Vocal students can expect to gain a technical foundation with an emphasis on breathing and vocal placement. I studied vocal pedagogy and classical voice with Debby Wenner and jazz voice with Dr. Darden Purcell, and believe that a strong technique is the key to unlocking any vocal style. I will work with each student to develop their unique voice and timbre to their best potential. As a composer, my choral works have been performed both nationally and internationally. I also compose chamber works and vocal works. I love to mentor students who want to get their start as composers. With each student, I like to help them realize their inner voices by connecting them to the style of their choice (classical, contemporary, jazz to name a few). I am always excited to meet each student where they are at and give them the most personalized experience I can. Let's get started on your musical journey today!

Joi has been teaching my 6 years old daughter at home and we could not be more satisfied. Joi brings new ideas to make lessons fun, and is the most patient instructor we could ever have. Our little one is now able to play songs by reading the sheet music from her beginner book. 100% recommended.

Joi taught my 7 year old twins beginning piano for a year. Although my twins are identical, she delivered individual instruction that always challenged them at their learning frontier. They both were provided an amazing level of music foundation from rhythm to sight reading and more. Unfortunately, she moved and we moved but if she were close to us, she would still be teaching our girls. We loved the in-home instruction option. She is truly a gem. Very highly recommend.

Joi is great with kids. My 8-year-old discovered how much fun piano can be!
