Private Piano Teacher

I am an experienced teacher, active and accredited member of the Music Teachers National Association (MTNA), and have experience in a variety of settings from standard private lessons to university pre-college faculty positions to summer festivals and intensives. I welcome any and all levels of pianists with the end goal of providing quality music education across the board. Whether you are hoping to go into music professionally or not, I believe that any approach to the keyboard deserves the highest level of teaching on my part. This is why my lessons are not simply 30/45/60 minutes a week but an ongoing partnership where I offer guidance and support as you explore what it is that you want within the wide and wonderful field of music. Whether this entails a professional opinion on an instrument, a safe place to express yourself, or a starting point for your artistic digital portfolio, it is my belief that our community can and will help you achieve whatever it is you set out to do.

I started taking lessons with Tracy a few months ago after many years of playing with bad habits and technique, and I've been making big improvements from day one. She's incredibly patient and fun, and I'm certain she is a great instructor for children as well. I cannot recommend Tracy highly enough.

My 7 years old daughter has developed a passion for playing Piano since she started learning with Ms Tracy Wong. Tracy is very energetic, talented and wonderful teacher.
You will not regret to take her lessons.

Awesome online lessons' experience with Tracy. Vibrant teaching and effective interaction! Now my daughter loves playing piano and practicing more every day. In addition, the bonus is her excellent notes to students for after-class use. Clear structure and highlighted key points so as to follow up easily for daily practice.

Private Piano Teacher

I approach piano from a classical background and students can expect to study some materials related to classical music, and if a students interest is outside of classical they can expect to learn how to play their favorite song, or a familiar melody from a movie, or how to listen to songs on the radio or online and be able to figure them out!

For students who would like a broader understanding of piano and how to play they will be expected to study a lesson series of books they must purchase at the discretion of the teacher, or as a teacher I can also teach out of any existing books a student might have. If they would like to learn one song they love and want to purchase Pay-As-You-Go lessons until they have mastered it, that is great, too!

Students who want to gain a comprehensive study of piano will also learn music theory and ear training, and how to read music.

Everything went well until we decided to do in home classes. After we paId him upfront he canceled a couple of time then he rescheduled a virtual class where he never showed up, we texted him and 20 minutes later he sent a text letting us know he was too busy And couldn’t continue teaching my daughter. We asked for the refund which we haven’t received yet. He is a good teacher just very unprofessional. we didn’t lose that much money but he hurt my daughter since she looking forward to learn from him. I wouldn’t recommend him.

I've been teaching Piano for 12 years and my students have gone on to form their own groups and work with major artists around the world. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to know your way around the keyboard, and as time goes on you'll be able to naturally play what you want. I specialize in Pop, Rock, R&B, Country and Gospel and love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

As a piano teacher, I teach Premiere and Adult Levels out of Alfred’s Piano Library Books Series and Levels 1-4 from Bastein Piano Basics, ages 5 years old-Adult. I invented a music theory game called Match that teaches and reinforces music theory and vocabulary as well as notation in less than half the normal time. Students can learn bass clef and treble clef notes in 30 minutes by playing Match! The kids love the game and don’t even realize they are learning!

Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.
Romy R.
Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

"I am beginner at playing the piano, and Nic is an awesome teacher because he's patient and any improvement - no matter how big or how small - Nic recognizes and compliments the achievement. He really breaks things down so it's not overwhelming for a beginner, and he allows me to learn at my own pace but he does challenge me to learn. I've learned to know which keys are which, how to place my fingers on the keys and how to relax and play with both hands. I highly recommend Nic as a piano teacher."

It is still a long road, but thanks to female leaders of the past and present, women have a stronger say now than ever before.
