Jordan was very helpful right from the start. He listened to me on where I am at and where I want to be. He showed me a few things that we will work towards and then helped me understand my instrument much better. Gave me some fun new things to practice before the next lesson. If you're looking for a lesson that is interactive and fun I recommend Jordan and the online thing is supper easy and handy. I don't think it could have gone any better. The lesson was 45 minutes and it felt like 10.

Jordan is excellent & very patient.

Jordan is a fantastic teacher! He expertly and patiently guided my young son from essentially 0 to reading notes and playing them on the guitar in about half an hour. He is clearly an experienced musician who loves to teach. We are looking forward to the next lesson.

Whether you're tackling singer-songwriting, accompaniment, pop/rock, jazz/funk/r&b, or even classical exercises, I can help you. I've studied piano/voice/guitar long enough to know what each kind of instrumentalist/vocalist needs. I'm well versed in a overview of all genres and styles, as well as specialized areas of study. As a writer, I'm also very familiar with coaching instrumentalists geared towards composition and arranging. If you're looking to improve your skills, I can help!

Online Piano Teacher

Hello everyone! My name is Serina Noelle Saputa! I am currently a freshman at the University of North Texas majoring in music composition and next semester, double majoring in piano performance! I have been teaching for almost a year now, and love every moment of teaching. I have been playing piano for eleven years, and also have three years of percussion. I also take voice lessons, and maybe in the future would love to learn violin! My other interests include ballet and any other type of dance. I believe what makes lessons with me as a teacher so unique, is that I can understand how nervous a child can be to perform. Growing up, I was very nervous to perform, compete, or audition for piano. I believe that to make a piece exquisete, a child must have confidence not only in their abilities, but within themself. Another strength I have is performing. Now as an adult, I love performing and believe that you must put everything into your music. I love seeing and helping my students find ...

Online Piano Teacher

I bring to teaching piano an unrivalled Juilliard education, international performing and recording career, and 18 years of experience teaching students of various levels. In teaching, I see myself as my students' partner dedicated to helping them realize their full potential as budding musicians and performers. I am encouraging, enthusiastic, patient, and flexible in teaching adults and children of all levels. I love finding the right individual approach with each of my students, so that they stay motivated and inspired while growing in their musical understanding and mastery.

I strongly believe that a chief tool enabling progress in all aspects of musicianship is focused listening, and see my role as a teacher to guide students in developing power and sensitivity of aural perception through concrete steps and activities. I'm deliberate in selecting and assigning a repertoire that challenges students with appropriate techniques and allows them to develop as pianists and ...

Gabrielius has been teaching piano to my two daughters (5 and 7 years old) for the past 2 years and is an absolutely fantastic teacher! He is wonderful with children and has an amazing ability to figure out how to intrigue them with their lessons. My girls have learned a tremendous amount from him and really love their lessons with him!! He is truly a gifted teacher!
Charisma
Dr. Gabrielius Alekna is a 5 Star piano teacher. He’s very inspiring. He’s an accomplished concert pianist, recording artist, and holds a Doctor of Music from the Julliard School of Music. Despite all of his accomplishments, he teaches with humility and kindness.

He establishes a high quality standard so you could achieve your best. Either by playing a passage or the whole music piece (to your heart’s delight), he demonstrates the complexity and beauty of the music you are working to learn.

He’s very professional. He genuinely regards every person without condescension and wants you to work toward being your best. I’ve taken lessons with him since 2009 and I’ve played pieces that I will never have been able to play without his patience with me. He is generous with his time, helping me to select a new piano on his day off and always finishing a lesson at its natural conclusion (not because the clock says so.)

Above all he’s a real person that you and I could relate with. And, because of that, I not only regard him as my instructor and mentor, but truly a friend.

I have been studying piano with professor Gabrielius Alekna in Vytautas Magnus University's Music Academy (Lithuania) for three years. Now we continue our lessons online and I am more than pleased to work with him - he is an amazing pianist, caring teacher and one of the most wonderful people that I've ever met. Over this time Gabrielius taught me to hear and understand (classical) music in new and very subtle ways, encouraged me to take challenging music pieces and successfully helped understand, learn and perform them. With Gabrielius' lessons and help I've won national and international piano solo and accompanists competitions, discovered new ways of interpretating music in piano duet and chamber music ensemble. Gabrielius' teaching distinguishes itself by calm and professional approach, which makes the learning process seem rather easy and pleasant than challenging or requiring much effort. The methods used by Gabrielius help achieve excellent quality in one's playing and create the feeling of freedom, which makes the music flow...

She helped me understand my drawings from a different point of view, she helped me figure out resources to make my drawings better and she gave me some ideas about how to weave the words into my drawings. They were excellent ideas and I felt invigorated and refreshed when I left.

Nashville Venues for Piano Performances

By Julie L. - Nashville Piano Teacher

Nashville, Tennessee has been called “Music City” since WSM-AM announcer David Cobb coined the phrase in 1950. Although Nashville is typically associated with Country music, the truth is that you can hear just about any style of music here. There are many opportunities for anyone taking piano lessons in Nashville to get out and see a variety of live shows, or even perform for an audience.

With 58 official Live Music Venues (each marked a sign in the shape of a large guitar pick), many of the live music acts you will hear feature a pianist or keyboard player. You’ll find Blues at BB King's Blues Club on Second Avenue, and hear live Salsa music while learning to dance Cuban style downstairs in the same building. F. Scott’s Restaurant is a great place to groove to a jazz trio while enjoying a gourmet dinner or “the Piano Man” will play and sing your requests at Maggiano’s Little Italy.

TPAC (Tennessee Performing Arts Center) features Tony Bennett in concert, Les Miserables, or Shrek the Musical. At the Schermerhorn Symphony Center, visiting classical pianists, violinists, percussionists, and singers can be heard. Free tickets for students are provided through the Classroom Classics program. Country music abounds at the Grand Ole Opry, the Ryman Auditorium, and of course Second Fiddle where you can hear live country music 7 days a week on Lower Broadway. You can find excellent music just about anywhere in Nashville, from artists like Lady Gaga and Keith Urban playing downtown at the Bridgestone Arena, to singer-songwriters at the Bluebird Cafe, to showcases at smaller venues like 12th and Porter, or even undiscovered talent serenading passers-by on the sidewalk down Broadway.

Living here in the midst of so much talent can be intimidating, but we all have to start somewhere. As a teacher of music theory, singing and piano lessons in Nashville, I encourage my students to do what they love, follow their musical passions, and work diligently. I love teaching piano lessons in Nashville because there are so many opportunities for me and my students to be inspired by amazing musical performances and to perform in the greater Nashville area. For pianists, singers, or simply music lovers, Nashville is truly “Music City.”
