I am a beginner friendly piano instructor who can explain (what can sometimes be rather complex) content in an easy to understand and age appropriate way. We will cover the fundamentals and foundational elements of piano and music theory that can be applied and later translated to other music subjects. I will help my students set and reach attainable goals with their music and performances.

Piano lessons with me mean access to a plethora of knowledge and piano/music material that I can't wait to share with you. The only thing you will need to work with me is a piano/keyboard and your computer (a printer helps too), so let's get started!

About Mariah B.

I am Mariah, and I have a strong passion for music, which I have been studying for over 13 years. From the time I was ten years old, I have been formally singing in select choirs, musicals, and solo performances. Additionally, I write my own music and have experience recording in professional studios. This past year, I was also fortunate enough to have the opportunity to be a judge for a virtual national singing competition.

I graduated from college Summa Cum Laude from the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts with a Bachelor's in Fashion from Arizona State University, where I also studied French for two years. While in college, I began studying music more intensely (outside of school), and I also then began learning to play the guitar. In my free time, I enjoy songwriting, practicing my instruments, and performing.

For more than a decade, I have been leading the children at church in praise and worship and instructing them in small groups. Formerly a substitute teacher, I continued to educate children in more standard academic fields. With all of my experience working with children in the aforementioned fields, I have developed a strong ability to connect with students and relay knowledge in an effective way.

My teaching methods are largely dependent on the student's goals. For absolute beginners, I like to open up my students to all that can be created with music. For beginners, intermediate and advanced learners alike, I like to translate the importance of music theory and incorporate the student's personal musical preferences into their lessons as this increases engagement. If students are interested in performance, I can center their lessons around expanding their repertoire and can offer tips on performance, stage presence, and overcoming "stage fright".

I am kind, patient, encouraging, and absolutely willing to work with anyone to help them reach their goals. Whether you want to sing for a living or just be more confident at karaoke night, I want to help you reach your music goals and discover vocal ability you may not have ever known you had!

First lesson with my son was excellent. Mariah packed quite a bit of material in 30 minutes and we have a lot to work on over the week.

At CSSC, I worked as a remote judge for their virtual, nationwide singing competitions. I judged and provided extensive feedback and constructive feedback for singers of various genres, skill levels, performance levels, and age groups. It was truly a good time!
