Check me out on Takelessons Live to see how I teach!!

It is my goal to develop in each of my students a comprehensive understanding of music which enables them to play the piano with utmost enjoyment and musicality. Quality piano instruction is achieved through focused private lessons. Although with many students I emphasize classical repertoire, it really doesn't work with every student. Each student's curriculum is ALWAYS tailored to their interests and goals. I find encouragement is absolutely necessary but students must try their best. My teaching style consists of a fun, relaxed environment where students can feel like they can express themselves fully and learn much at the same time. Mastery at the piano is so much more than learning to press the right keys at the right time. Music is about expressing and sharing human emotions and feelings that are unspoken and is something we can all be touched by.

About Sabrina P.

I've been banging on the piano since I was 3, but piano became more structured when I turned 7 and I've loved piano so much since then! I've been classically trained in the US and then later in Italy so all together I have 19 years piano playing experience. My favorite genre is Modern Japanese Classical music (fancy name for anime and video game music). While studying abroad with my Maestro in Italy however, I was only allowed to play classical music so I became even more proficient in that musical genre.
I have been teaching Children and Adult students for 9 years. People aren't' intimidated when I'm around and I believe students benefit greatly when they are comfortable with the teacher and can feel natural around them. The teaching process is most successful when the students share their ideas, disagreements, goals; when they are challenged and test their abilities.
***Lesson Details***
I am very laid back and love to laugh, but I do expect the students to be prepared and practice, this way they benefit the most from each teaching session. I believe students should be involved in their curriculum, so I encourage all to bring in pieces THEY WANT to play because this will make the learning process overall more fun and enjoyable. My trust is, if you practice regularly you can accomplish much in a short period of time. Whatever you put into learning piano, is what you will get out, whether great or small.
***Specialties***
- Modern Japanese Classical : Yoko Shimamura, Nobuo Uematsu ...
(Video Game and Anime)
- Classical : Joplin, Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Chopin, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff ...
- Italian Technique Training

Sabrina is a great instructor, she takes the time to assess where you are, and where you want to go. I have been working with her in the group lessons on Take Lessons live, and her ability to take complex theory and techniques and break them down into understandable and applicable uses is the reason why I have chosen to take private lessons with her, She is very enthusiastic and passionate about helping you achieve your goals,

Wonderful Teacher!

My 7 yr old enjoys and looks forward to her piano lessons with Sabrina. Sabrina is very kind, professional and encouraging. She instructs with positive reinforcement and teaches in a way that is enjoyable and understandable to a 7 year old. Her passion for piano is contagious and my daughter often practices without being reminded.
