Leanna is incredible. She's kind and patient and extremely easy to work with, which is rare for someone with such deep experience in a field. One thing that continued to stand out and amaze me is her unbelievable ear. Even in remote sessions via zoom, she could tell immediately if one note in a chord or progression was off, and helped me fix it. I've heard the same from other students of hers.

If you're a serious student, considering music as a career, or in any competitive sense, Leanna is an irreplaceable ally with the skill to push you further than you may have thought possible. Absolutely recommend.
Zachary
As a beginner, taking lessons with Leanna has offered a structured approach to learning the fundamentals of piano, along with developing good technique, which has made the process less daunting. After only a couple of lessons, I feel more confident not only in my playing, but also in understanding elements of music theory (like reading sheet music) that I expected to be more difficult to grasp.
Sonya T.
Excellent goal-oriented teacher! Leanna is able to provide effective feedback and instruction to an advanced student like myself. I was impressed with the detailed coaching provided in the online environment.

I was raised in the Suzuki method, trained in it, and I believe in it. It is the most effective school of education for new musicians who want to learn reliably. I've been teaching it 9 years.

I can talk to you for days about the method, but I will sum it up as quickly as i can.

1: Immersion
2: Daily Practice
3: Listening
4: Strong relationship between student, teacher and parent.

If the student listens everyday, practices everyday, practices what i tell them, and is made to love the music, you will learn. I've taught hundreds of students this way and when all the conditions are met, all my students have had success.

Piano lessons are structured with a focus on what the student needs. We ensure a strong with a foundation of scales, note reading, and ear training, to give the student the versatility to go in any musical direction they like, and make them a well rounded musician. The books I usually begin in for piano will either be Suzuki book 1 for piano or "Adventures ...

I prioritize understanding over mechanical repetition. I do not force homework or busywork but rather I try to inspire the student to enjoying playing and learning. I normally teach half playing and half study during lessons but that’s flexible obviously. I love teaching and I believe in my students.

I ADORE Jillian! She is so sweet and encouraging. When my schedule is crazy she does everything in her power to accommodate me. It is clear that she knows what she is doing. After trying to teach myself guitar for YEARS, with the way she explains things, I am already further along after just 3 lessons. She also has a gorgeous voice! I can't wait to continue learning from her!
