I am a highly motivated piano teacher with the experience of 35+ years of private lessons in my home. I enjoy teaching all ages and levels in many genres of music. Included in lessons besides learning beautiful pieces, are emphasis on technical skills, music theory, sight reading and improvising. I tailor lessons according to existing strengths and weaknesses. My students are equipped with the knowledge of how to practice at home! I record each lessons' assignments for the student to use at home to practice efficiently.

About Toni H.

I've studied and enjoyed piano since I was very young, having classical piano study as my musical foundation. As a student, my teacher had me participate in our area's Student Piano Proficiency Certification program up through all ten levels. Also, as a pre-teen, I started voice lessons and 'sang my way' right though High School.

I pursued my Bachelor of Music degree in Vocal Performance at Cal State University Northridge, and by my second year was cast in leading roles in the Opera Dept. I met my husband there who sang Opera professionally. As soon as I started having children, I began teaching private piano lessons. That was over 35 years ago!!

I've taught both Piano and Voice lessons through the years very successfully, though I feel more comfortable teaching piano somehow! Most students who have studied with me continued lessons for many years (5-18)-even into college!-Three of my former students have started piano studios of their own! We still keep up with each other's lives having developed a close mentoring relationship over our long time together.

I've lived as a Pastor's wife using my musical abilities to serve God in ministries in our local church in the Chicago area. I believe with my whole heart in the Lord Jesus Christ; He is the source of all my motivation in every area of my life! I have accompanied the adult choir and worship teams in the Sunday worship service.Through this experience, I can also teach students how to improvise using chord charts and lead sheets.

Now, since my husband has retired, we've moved to the South (closer to my 10 grandchildren) and now I'm looking to build up my studio again! I take great pleasure not only in sharing the joy of learning to play (in the context of lessons)- but even more importantly - to establish an encouraging, healthy rapport together.

Thank you for considering me as your or your or your child's piano teacher!

She is kind, patient, and thorough in her teaching. She makes sure to explain why you use proper technique, not just telling you to do so. She helps you become a better pianist and love what you are learning. Would highly recommend for a beginner or an advance player. Started beginner level In June. Age 10.

Toni is very professional in how she conducts her lessons. She is very knowledgeable and skilled at teaching piano and shows a lot of patients and kindness. I find her very understanding and agreeable to our needs and she does an amazing job accommodating our special requirements. I find her prices to be reasonable and her scheduling to be practical.

My daughter has been taking lessons with Toni for several months now. This is her second piano teacher and the improvement we've seen from switching is just unbelievable. I love Toni's philosophy of teaching the kids to read music and all the fundamentals of basic piano chords and scales before they get into "fun music". I thought my daughter would not like it, but she loves the sense of accomplishment she feels when she can sight-read a piece of music just because of the time she has taken to work on the basics. If your child is serious about wanting to play piano, I think Toni is a fantastic choice!
