I teach students how to identify melodic and harmonic intervals by having them hear specific distances of pitches in their minds and matching that to their voices singing those pitches. I guide the student by positively reinforcing each step until mastered. I use the piano for melodic dictations and both piano and drums for rhythmic dictations.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am available online!
I instruct children as well as adults ranging from beginning to advanced levels in the art of playing the piano. I teach various styles of music including standard classical repertoire and popular pieces. Through a creative, fun and individualized approach to teaching, my students also learn ear training, sight reading, music theory, piano technique and music history as it pertains to the pieces they are currently learning. After one month, beginning students can expect to have learned how to play one piece of music of their choosing and one piece of music chosen by me. After a few months of studying with me, they can expect to have gained basic music reading skills.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Steinway Baby Grand Piano, 76 key Casio keyboard, Dell All In One 20" desktop, music software and music theory games

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching classical and popular repertoire. I have taught other styles as well as improvisation. I utilize a student centered approach structuring lessons to suit each student's individual goals.

My son has been taking piano lessons with Lisa for more than 6 months. Lisa is a great teacher. She is very patient and knowledgeable. She's able to correct my son's problems. I've seen tremendous growth and improvement on him since he's been studying piano with Lisa. Lisa is also very willing to work with us on scheduling issues as well. I would definitely recommend her.

The very first lesson was awesome! My 5 yo was already excited to learn piano, but after her lesson she is even more psyched to go again! Lisa taught on her level, made it fun with age-appropriate games, and really tailored the lesson to my child. I don't remember piano lessons as a child being that fun. So far I highly recommend her!

EXCELLENT

Lisa's positive and relaxed attitude plus her knowledge and attention to detail has gotten me back to being able to play the piano after a 50 year hiatus :)
