Teaching since:
August 2003

My name is Miriam and I've been teaching piano since 2003 to young students starting from age 4 to teenagers.

I began studying music in the 6th grade playing clarinet in the band until I entered college at Texas A&M International University, where I studied for a Bachelor's Degree in Music with a minor in Studio Art. I am classified a senior and I plan to complete my Bachelor's Degree as soon as I am able to resume my education.

Piano has always been a passion of mine. I would teach myself to play popular classics until I was able to take private piano lessons with Dr. Fritz Gechter at Texas A&M International University. Since then, I have taught at several music studios and privately at students' homes.

I am always eager to share my experience and knowledge in music with children or young students who are looking to learn and have fun.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a friendly and very patient instructor. I like using Alfred's Basic Piano Library books for students at the beginner level.

For those at the intermediate level, I use Hanon's "The Virtuoso Pianist in 60 Exercises" and assign pieces from classical composers to modern artists, depending on the style of music the student is looking to learn.

By 3-6 months, I expect my students to know basic piano techniques, including fingerings, music notes, rhythms, and major scales apart from assigned musical repertoire.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The lessons are taught in a studio room inside the instructor's apartment on a full-size digital piano and seating is available.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, contemporary - anything the student is yearning to learn.

Excellent instuctor to work with.

Taking piano lessons with Miriam was great. She has patience, and she's very professional. She was flexible with my schedule, especially since I was in school. She's dedicated in teaching the piano, and makes it easy for you to learn. What I liked is that, if you don't understand something, she will find a way for you to understand it. I recommend anybody to take lessons with her.
