I am currently teaching most piano lessons online. I am also available for a few in-person lessons in my home studio, if certain safety precautions are followed... more about that at the end of this section.

Whether your lessons are online or in person, a typical lesson with me will include things like this:

-The student plays what they have practiced, and we work on any difficult areas and techniques for playing better.

-I introduce new lesson material, asking questions to make sure my student understands.

-We work on music theory, sight reading, good posture, and helpful practice techniques.

-I expect my students to practice every day, just as I do. It is the only way to become proficient.

- - - - - - - - - -

For online lessons, you may use the online platform provided by TakeLessons, or we can use Zoom. Most of my students are using Zoom.

You will need to order lesson books before your first lesson. Please contact me after you sign up to discuss

Melody is awesome! She was able to answer my myriad of questions at my first lesson and still had time to teach me new things that have really helped me. She was very personable, knowledgeable, and easy to talk to. I have no doubt she is going to help me become the best piano player I can be.

I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation in sight reading, technique and music theory. I may follow a lesson book when teaching beginners but I also teach how to improvise and how to use other methods of learning music such as learning by ear or using chords.

Private Piano Teacher

As a music teacher of over 10 years I take a fun but structured approach to learning the piano. I've taught all ages and I individually work with each student to help them learn the music that they want to and reach the goals that they set for themselves. I work with each student to help mold their learning experience specifically to them. We will typically start with exercises and music theory and then move to music, but am willing to adapt to what each student is wanting and needing. I will send written individual feedback after the lesson to help remind the student of what we are working on. I hope to have the chance to share my love of music with you!

Jill is amazing! I look forward to her class every week. I pretty much have zero experience with music and she has made learning the harp super fun and welcoming. She is encouraging and gives music that is just the right challenge. She has been progressing me every week and it’s been so exciting learning new things weekly.

"I'm a first time piano student at a ripe golden age that thought I wouldn't have to learn to read notes...haha! I was apprehensive about taking piano lessons at this stage of life. Lana is the best...she is patient, challenging, supportive, and makes learning fun. She starts you off with songs you enjoy playing and builds to a variety. I've only been playing for a short time and I already have a great mix of popular songs and now moving into classical. She even made learning notes fun with an app she found. You learn and play at your own pace. I've seen her interact with young and old and am impressed with her aptitude of working with each person at their unique skill level. I love learning piano from Lana and I would recommend her to people and children of all ages."

Why Playing Slow is The Best Way to Practice Piano

Playing fast is cool. Audiences love to see fingers flying fast over the keys, effortlessly and in perfect control (or even out-of-control!) It provides a sense of exhilaration and danger, and taps into our love of exhibition and speed. The pianist themselves also enjoy playing fast, as the effort and exercise is satisfying once grasped. But despite the love of playing fast, the practice and journey to gain this ability is actually very much slow practice. There is a famous story of a co …
