Overview

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.

· Piano · 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.
