Profile_100473_pi_IMG_0176
Woodinville, WA
View Full Profile

I have been a professional piano player for many years and I tend to teach my students all techniques and methods to the fullest.
Piano needs to be taught with absolute perfection so that students fall in love with the music.

About Ghazal
Music is a tool for spiritual progress of every human being.

I started Piano when I was 8 years old. My siblings were taking lessons at that time and hearing them play it made me fall in love with Piano, therefore, my parents had me get started in taking lessons as well. I have been playing Piano for about 15 years now and it started to become part of my everyday life. I have had four different teachers for piano and they were all amazing teachers. One of my private piano teachers was a student of Iran’s most popular pianist and composer, Emanuel Malek Aslanian. I also had an amazing Piano instructor back in Iran who made me become an expert in techniques as well as enjoying the melodies. I mainly play and teach Classical music. Beethoven and Mozart are my favorite composers and I enjoy playing their pieces very much.
I have been te
aching piano for about 4 years now and it is very joyful. I love communicating with my students and do my best to help them discover their talents and interest. I want the students to enjoy what they learn and play.

I also have a BS in Biological Sciences from University of California, Irvine. Biology also taught me how Music has such great influences on human body and soul. It relaxes people and help them get through difficulties. Being a Bio students and teaching Piano at the same time was the best thing that ever happened to me, that's why I really want everyone to experience music in their lives and get touched by it.

I also speak Two languages; English and Farsi. I am Persian and was born and raised in Iran. I moved to the USA when I was 15 years old.

I cannot wait to start working with you and teach you to my best ability what you desire to learn.

*** Lesson Details ***
One of the most important tools in my teaching is to get to know my students well. I try to maintain a really close friendship with my students. I want to know what type of music/style my students are interested in and make sure I bring out their talents and teach them the necessary techniques as well. Students need to enjoy what they play and I make sure that they do. I also talk to my students about their goals and what they want to achieve by learning Piano and motivate them to go for what they want to learn.
Piano should be joyful and exciting. I hope that my students learn the techniques as well as their style of music after being with me for a while and I do my best to discover that in them.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a Piano at home.

*** Travel Equipment ***
students should have a piano/keyboard available at their homes. They should be able to buy their own books as well once I choose a book based on their abilities for them.

*** Specialties ***

It was awful. She never showed up after almost $300.000. The first 2 weeks she made excuses. The third week she just didn't bother. We want our money back. This is a scam, and very disappointed. We got a keyboard for our daughter for Christmas to learn piano. She hasn't been able to use her nice Yamaha weighted piano keyboard yet. Shameful

Classical piano lessons include ear training, music theory, performance preparation, and many fun ways to engage each student and challenge him or her towards a greater passion for music

About Marissa
My name is Marissa, and I come to the music studio with a passion for teaching students of all ages and needs. My education and training has taken me from Phoenix, AZ where I grew up to Greenville, SC where I received both an undergraduate degree in Music Education and a master's degree in Performance. While in Greenville from 2007-2014, I took many choral tours and led both adult choirs and childrens choirs. I often enjoyed performing for local children's CD recordings. I currently sing in a nationally acclaimed community choir, The Rivertree Singers, who perform regularly in and around the Greenville area. It was also my privilege to train a young member of the American Boy Choir and accompany for him in 2011. It was in Orlando, FL that I decided to build my own studio through Takelessons, and I enjoyed every minute of it! In August of
2016, my family moved back to Simpsonville, SC to be near family. After a brief hiatus of enjoying motherhood, I am excited to be back with Takelessons and to have the opportunity to work with talented students here in South Carolina!

Lessons with me are always conducted in the utmost professional way, and I come to the studio with a desire to teach not only music, but the love of music. I love music and want my students to love it too! I use illustrations and examples to make abstract ideas more concrete. Students are encouraged to explore their voice and piano skills in each of their lessons and during their practice time. I challenge my students to do their best and try to find the balance between keeping them inspired and pushing them to do their best!

Lessons are structured according to the level and age of the student. I believe that teacher's approach must be flexible and according to the student's need, their personal goals and development.
Apart from introduction and building of pianistical skills and musical understanding - theory and ear training, sight reading, I also try to introduce repertoire from different epoques and genres which helps student broaden their knowledge.

About Sandra
I have been teaching piano and theory since year 2000. Apart from teaching privately, I served in music elementary, middle and high schools in Belgrade. Residing in Miami from June 2015, I served in Miami Fine Arts Academy, Music Works and Allegro.
Bachelor Degree in Piano from Belgrade University of Arts in 1997 and Master of Music in 2003.
Piano Performance Diploma Program from Longy School of Music, Massachusetts in 2002.
I am passionate about teaching and helping my students achieve their goals, whether they are at beginning or advanced level. My methods are flexible and am always looking for a fresh approach from which the student can benefit the most.

15 years ago, I started learning the piano and began my life-long pursuit of music. This pursuit has led me in a wide variety of directions. Today, I am currently a doctoral student at Wheaton Graduate School and hope to teach others the joy of playing the piano in my free time.

I have a passion for a wide variety of styles of music. For several years, I played professionally for weddings, shows, and musicals. I have led worship for churches in Michigan and Connecticut. At Yale, I was president of an organization called Yale Musical Cure, in which I played piano in hospitals, hospices, and charity concerts. While at Yale, I also studied theory, piano, sight-singing, and composition.

Lessons will vary significantly from student to student. Not only does every student have different goals in mind, they all learn differently as well. I do my best to customize my lessons for each student's goals and needs. A typical piano lesson may involve music-reading, chord studies, technical work, scale practice, theory, and of course learning songs!

I am a flexible teacher and am excited to teach students to truly understand music and enjoy playing the piano. Please reach out if you have any questions or interest in taking lessons.

Whether you want to learn today's popular music, go back to classic songs of the past, or want to write your own music, I have the tools for you! I have many years of experience teaching both kids and adults, and my versatile professional experience means I can offer instruction in a wide range of musical styles. For traditional method book learning, I'm well-versed in both the Alfred piano method, as well as Faber & Faber, while drawing from my own upbringing as a Suzuki student. I also make sure each student learns music theory and ear training techniques in order to internalize the music on a deeper level.

About Tyler
I'm a multi-instrumentalist, teacher, composer, arranger, freshly transplanted to Brooklyn after seven great years in Boston, Massachusetts. My professional experience on saxophone, keyboards, clarinet, flute, and bass in many different musical styles has offered me a wide-ranging palate to teach from. For the past five years, I've worked for multiple organizations and agencies as a private lessons instructor, averaging 15-20 students at any given time and maxing out at over 30! My approach to lessons is laid back, yet goal-oriented. My main goals are to equip my students musical and instrumental fundamentals, help them discover their particular passions within music and work towards related goals, and to foster an environment rooted in fun and mutual respect.

Tyler was the piano teacher for our two daughters for almost 5 years. They were piano beginners aged 4 and 6 when we started. My daughters are more on the shy side, and Tyler ended up being the perfect teacher for them. He is gentle and patient but at the same time got them excited about learning the instrument and playing music of different genres. My daughters enjoyed the lessons very much and they were sad to see Tyler leave for New York. I can highly recommend Tyler as a teacher especially for shy beginners like my daughters were.

Learning piano can bring a variety of benefits into your life. For some, it is a way to relax after a stressful workday. For others, it is a way to cultivate mental discipline and hand-eye coordination, skills that can be transferred to a large number of other fields. It can also become the focus of one's personal expression and the most fulfilling use of their time as professionals.

I have twenty years experience teaching students of all ages, who want to study music for a wide spectrum of reasons. I am committed to helping you develop your best relationship to the piano possible, whatever your goals, and no matter how much time you have to devote outside of lessons. I am flexible with methodology and can adapt to your needs and desires.

I have taught at Juilliard, Mannes, Westminster Choir College, the CUNY Graduate Center in NYC and others. I love sharing my passion for music and hope to have the opportunity to share it with you!

I started piano lessons at age 3 and know that you are never too young to begin learning piano. I have been privileged to work with amazing teachers who helped develop my skills. My experience-working with young children and also working adults. All ages are welcome! You will learn to read music, theory, sight reading , playing by ear, and learn to play other genres of music i.e. reggae music. Let’s make it happen!!!

About Jo-Anne
My name is Jo-Anne Johnson. I am so thankful to my mother who pushed me and allowed me to learn how to play the piano! I remember when I started private piano lessons how much I disliked it! My teacher realized this and began to appeal to my strengths. I ended up having fun and I want to ensure that same experience for the students I teach. I will admit I hated practicing but once I began to enjoy it, I got better at it because I practiced. Learning music is fun as long as we work hard! My motto is work hard, play hard. Not only did I learn how to play, I learned perseverance, patience, and time management. After high school, I attended Rollins College and continued studying piano with Dr. Cook. She taught me that teaching music is just as important as playing music and that’s where my love for teaching piano came about. Not only do I lov
e and enjoy classical music, I am also very skilled in other genres especially reggae music from the island of Jamaica. I play at various churches, events, weddings, etc and I look forward to sharing my expertise with all of you!
