Hello and welcome to my teaching world! I love teaching any one, and any age, piano, as it has always been my strongest instrument. I can start as young as four or five (if that child knows her/his ABCs and numbers 1-10, use a pencil and crayons); or any teen or adult wanting to refresh their early piano training.

Learning piano is excellent for those young minds entering the school system. Most kids studying any musical instrument become honor (AP) students. Learning music is especially helpful in learning math as music and math are based on patterns. Engineers and musicians have the same thing in common: they learn to recognize patterns easily.

For very young beginners, I use Alfred's Young Beginner course. For students 6-7-8 years of age, I lean toward John Thompson Easiest Piano Course (or JT's Modern or Adult courses) as they include a variety of genres learned early, with emphasis on classical technique after students become familiar with five-finger hand positions

About Susan B.
I would first like to say that I was born into a musical family. My Dad (choir director) and five older brothers were not only the majority of the choir in our large Catholic church, but Dad had a "tame" Frank Sinatra singing style. My mother played harmonica and piano by ear so acquiring musical intellects spread quickly to all of us. Most of my siblings sang and played instruments as we had a piano, guitar, organ, harmonica, trumpet, clarinet and a recorder to use as we pleased, with or without a music teacher.

I started singing and playing the piano at age four. With consistent encouragement from my oldest sister (a professional organist for 40+ years), I learned piano and music theory while I was learning to read; started guitar at eight. A natural born singer, I learned the basics of voice while in choir from middle school thr
ough high school while accompanying myself on piano or guitar when singing privately or for others. I wrote my first song at 17 and worked my way through college playing original music in coffee shops while earning my bachelors degree. After college, I started touring across the US (this was long before American Idol and the Internet when if you wanted to make it, you had to "pay your dues" on the road first). Working in the studio was always the most fun and challenging, my first original song got air play in 1990 (this was before CDs).

I received international distribution of my original music starting 2004 - that summer I worked and sold CDs in Munich Germany; however, upon returning to the US realized that performing was not my preferred way of providing service to others - teaching then become my passion. So while working for a local public school district as substitute teacher for general music classes (orchestra, band, choir as well), I was asked to write and teach a beginning songwriting class. From the very first day I had kids' attention in the palm of my hands (some of those students eventually recorded their own songs in studios).

After 30+ years of professional musicianship spanning across two continents (US and Germany) with originally produced music available on iTunes and two CDs on the market, I have found a unique way of teaching music to others. I especially enjoy teaching families (children, parents, grandparents, cousins, etc.) that want to learn to play a variety of instruments and music together. Married couples are wonderful to teach as well, I can usually get any combination of two or more people playing music together.

I usually host annual recitals. I do not force anyone to play in the recital, however most everyone enjoys the experience.

*** Specialties ***
Piano: Beginning/intermediate classical piano; then onto pop, blues, jazz, hymns, praise music (piano/voice).

Guitar: Beginning Classical Guitar (nylon strings; notes, chords, fingerpicking); Beginning Acoustic Guitar (steel strings; notes, chords, fingerpicking, strumming, using a plectrum or flat pick).

Ukulele: Beginning note and strumming patterns while accompanying voice.

Voice: I can take you to professional levels! As proof, one of my adult male students, singer/songwriter/pianist/guitarist/trumpeter, came to me to enhance his "character" voice. After 30 lessons, and assistance arranging vocals (including mic technique) in home studio four-song demo, my student signed a four-song demo recording deal with an eight (8) time Grammy award winning music producer Joe Chiccarelli - in LA with studio right on Sunset Blvd.

Lastly, I would love to enroll students who want to learn Joni Mitchell's style of piano and guitar playing. Mitchell never had formal music training, she played by ear; particularly on guitar she used more than 50 open tunings.

*** Lesson Details ***
First of all, I'll need to know you or your children's goals, dreams and natural talent(s). What types of music do you love best? Are you more the serious type or fun-loving (I can work with both types of personalities but do require a respectful demeanor).

Lessons are once per week. It is extremely important to develop the brain, nervous system, physical coordination all together with momentum and repetitive physical movements; particularly, the first six months of learning.

I do schedule students on "Schedule-As-You-Go" however usually only after consistent weekly lessons.

If you already know an instrument and want to take Combination Lessons - Voice/Piano or Voice/Guitar - I am an excellent teacher for that purpose.

Please do not expect overnight success, hand/motor skills need to be developed and that doesn't occur with one or two lessons, unless you've had prior experience on your instrument and just need to refresh your brain's neural pathways.

If you are the creative type and wish to compose your own music, then by all means let me know as I teach not only composition, but arranging, music production, and the legal aspects of copyrights and international distribution.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano lessons will be given on my parlor grand piano. For guitar lessons, I use either my Yamaha acoustic-electric classical nylon string guitar OR my vintage Epiphone steel string guitar. Please see the photo noting the studio's microphones/vocal monitors, plus I have a variety of hand percussion.

Susan is a excellent teacher, she has shown great patience and allows you to learn at your own pace. For an adult student with very little childhood training and having taken lessons once before as an adult she has done a masterful job learning what I want to learn and has been very open minded on which direction to go in as far as my lessons go. I am amazed that she has pulled some thoughts and ideas out of me that I didn't realize I had and has taught me patience in learning the piano.
If you are an adult student wanting to learn the piano or advance in piano Susan is the perfect teacher, she is flexible and takes the time to learn what your individual goals are in the piano. She has changed courses with my learning based on my interests, and for that I am thankful. If you are looking for a very talented music teacher (especially if you have done lessons before and have been thinking of giving it one last try) I would highly recommend Susan as the person to work with. 5 stars all the way!!

Mainly for younger students, I teach piano basics, including reading music, chords and lead work

About Ryan
Hey There! Let's play some music!!

My name is Ryan B. I play and teach guitar, bass and drums, and piano and would love to teach you or help you improve your abilities! I have been playing all four instruments for 25 years, and I have a personal, laid-back style that helps connect with each student.

I have been with TakeLessons for over five years now, and am truly blessed to have worked with so many great students.I will teach you what YOU want to play, regardless of style or genre you like in music. I design my lessons around YOU, and what YOU want to learn!

Let's talk guitar! Guitar is the ultimate instrument to learn! It is versatile and portable and you can learn quickly, regardless of your favorite style. I teach acoustic and electric guitar. I cover basics, such as chords, scales and solo work. I cover a wide ran
ge of artists such as: The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran. Regardless of your favorite band or style, I can help you accomplish your goals!

Piano is one of the most important instruments to learn, especially for children. The benefits are endless. For piano, I teach beginner through intermediate students. Piano is a popular choice because it has a very friendly layout with the keyboard. I use a proven 6 level method to take you from Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star to Ode to Joy! I cover how to read sheet music and cover a wide variety of musical styles!

Do you like the deep, powerful sound of the bass guitar? Well, I cover that too! The bass is a FUN instrument that is very friendly to learn. If you ever want to join a band, the bass is essential instrument, because it goes well with the drums. I cover a wide range of styles from blues, funk, rock and jazz! Go for it!

As a kid did you set up pots and pans or pillows and hit them with spoons like I did? Well, then the drums may be for you! You can learn drums with a pair of sticks! Drums are a total BLAST to play, and if you are not one who wishes to read sheet music,then the drums are perfect for you! I cover a TON of different styles, and if you have a favorite drummer, you can learn to play like him or her relatively quickly!

Need academic help? Well I can help with that too! I tutor in most subjects, including: Math, Science, Reading, Writing Skills and ACT and SAT prep

Here is a breakdown of specific areas of subjects I teach and tutor with:

Math: Pre-Algebra, Algebra I and II, Geometry
Science: Biology, Chemistry and Physics
Reading: Comprehension, Analysis, Annotation and general reading improvement methods
Writing Skills: Essay Writing, Editing, Analysis
Test Prep: I can help with the GED, ACT and SAT

*** Lesson Details ***
Students can expect my lessons to focus on your goals. I cover a lot of fundamentals and basics to start, and then go through more advanced techniques as the student progress. In a short period of time, you will know chords, notes, techniques, rhythm and timings, just to name a few!

Guitar students will learn basic chords, barre chords and soloing techniques. Bass students will learn bass notes, bass lines and soloing.

Drum students will learn timing, fills, soloing and lead drumming.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will always bring my instrument with me when I attend a lesson, so I expect my students to do the same when they come to my studio. Also, make sure you have any books and music that we will be playing out of. I always have a copy of anything that we are playing, so I expect the student to have a copy as well.

I've been teaching piano for more than 30 years and my students have been accepted in major university programs as music performance majors, as well as, participated in performing groups and serve as musicians in their churches and communities. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to gain at least a basic understanding of how to read music and as time goes on you'll be able to begin playing songs of your choosing, as well as, songs I may recommend for you. I specialize in classical and Christian music, but I can also teach you the style that you are most interested in. You will learn to play a variety of styles of music while also learning the basics of music theory. I typically use Alfred method books for teens & adults and John Thompson method books for children, and have the following tools available for your lessons: Keyboards, mics, recording equipment, a variety of method and song books. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to ...

About Melodie
Music has been a very important part of my life for a long time. I began taking piano lessons at age 9 and also started as a church musician that same year. Some people would say I was a very fast learner! I was, and still am, very interested in every aspect of music. I have played and performed a variety of styles of music but I have the most experience with Christian, classical, pop and R & B music. I am a very flexible and fun loving teacher. I am confident that I can teach you whatever style you are interested in learning! I am currently serving as the elementary honor choir director for Everman ISD and as minister of music for my church. I have been doing private lessons for more than 30 years and have taught music in a school setting for the past 29 years. I've taught general education classes, choir, band and general music. I

I am currently certified in: General Music 1-8, All-Level Music K-12 and General Education 1-8.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that all students can and will learn something if they put forth some effort! I also believe that learning music should be fun! I'm a pretty laid back person but I am very serious about my time and yours being well spent! I use a method book for piano lessons, as well as, a variety of other materials based on your interest and level. I also use a variety of materials for voice lessons. At the first lesson I will find out what your goals for learning music are. I will also find out what types of music you are interested in and we'll go from there! I do believe in challenging students. I do expect you to sincerely want to learn and to demonstrate your interest through weekly practice and attendance at your lessons. I enjoy seeing the excitement of a student when they learn something new!

Ms. Brookins is an excellent teacher. Although I had a few ideas of how to sing, I had no idea how technical it was.

I have forty years of teaching experience and have taught students with learning disabilities to senior citizens teaching all genres, levels and ages in your home or mine. Each lesson is curtailed to student ability, genre of music desired to learn, ear training, music theory and song writing.

Students learn to play songs quickly and with confidence; as music should speak to you. Through my years of teaching experience I've had great success in all areas as teaching is my passion.

About Sue
I started playing piano at the age of seven, classically trained then branched off to spiritual, pop, jazz, contemporary, funk. folk and every genre except country. Took music history, music appreciation, song writing, music theory, ear training and have performed at church, synagogue, parties, and weddings.

Students learn to read music and some by ear or combination of both to be well rounded pianist. Watching students pursue and fulfill their goals are my primary objectives.

My passion is to create and write my own music, however; my gift is my love of teaching and to guide each individual student to obtain their goals.

I care. I want students to enjoy learning, and am happy to be a part of their musical journey. I do treat students as individuals, and tailor lessons that are unique to each student based on their level, and talents. I also consider their personal goals and wishes, favorite music genres, and in many cases; parents' wishes. I try to help a student become a musician as well as a player by instructing them on theory, and technique. I also have an extensive performance background as a professional musician in classical, rock, and pop music which gives me a variety of stylistic choices to assist the student during lessons. I am a hard teacher; yet a fun teacher!

About Jamie Leigh
I am a professional vocalist and pianist. I perform and do studio work all over the country. I have studied music at North Texas State University (UNT), and at New England Conservatory in Boston. I am classically trained; however; my career has been made singing and playing comtemporary popular music. I also have professional theatre experience as well.

I have had the pleasure of teaching many students who have gone on to professional music careers. I am a very caring teacher, and will do my best to help a student become the best singer or player they can become. I am able to teach all styles of music. I am a very fun teacher; yet challenging teacher. I am encouraging, and I have years of training to share.

I have been performing in my band SHAZAM! as an encore favorite across the country. In 2012 I was a featured vocalist on Dymaxi
on Vehicle's CD....that recording won the coveted Artist In Music Award in Los Angeles. I have had a CORI Check as required by law to work with children. I am also a mother myself as well.

I tailor lessons based on the level, talent, skills, and areas needing work in the student's musical development process.I treat students as individuals...similar to a tutor or coaching relationship. Many students are naturally talented, and simply need more direction, and perhaps, technique, and basic music theory knowledge. In vocal study, proper breathing, vocal exercisers to improve singing and flexibility, and strength are part of lessons. In addition; I assist in choosing material, prepping for performances or auditions, and preserving and enhancing the natural voice of the student.

As a piano teacher; I can work with students at all levels as well. I am very good with beginners. I also have more to offer more advanced students in a concentration on technique, and add a music theory component to lessons as it helps them to become a better musician and instrumentalist. Thank you for your time!

My name is Xiaoyan Wang. I hold a bachelor’s degree in musicology, two master’s degrees in piano performance and piano pedagogy, and a doctor of musical arts degree (the music version of a PhD) in piano performance.
Teaching the piano is my passion. Piano lessons are incredibly worthwhile, but with so many options, the journey can be intimidating. My work guides students and parents on a clear path so that piano lessons are not only fun and exciting, but life-changing.

My Teaching Approach
Every human being is different, not only with different personalities and learning styles, but also with different goals for their music. This being the case, piano lessons are customized to individual students’ goals and needs.
While my approach is customized to each student, there are certain essentials that I reinforce in all piano lessons. These essentials include: detailed practice instructions, performance opportunities, and ongoing instructions.

I have been teaching piano since I was 18

I have been teaching piano since I was 18 years old, and have found it to be the most rewarding aspect of being an artist. Not only do I have the opportunity to guide the next generation of young musicians, but teaching also gives me the opportunity to learn about myself and humanity itself.

I play guitar, ukulele, charango, piano, and I sing! I've been a musician since 2000, and I've successfully turned a hobby into something my husband and I have been doing full time for several years. For beginners, something that works best is taking a song that you LOVE and turning it into your anthem on the instrument of your choice. So pick your song and message me!

About Loren
I'm an artist, musician, and language aficionada. I have a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Georgia, graduating with honors as a Magna Cum Laude in Spanish and French Linguistics. I am fluent in both languages. One thing I love about teaching is bringing the arts into the process of learning. We may sing in the language and even paint to help learn. I've taught younger than Kindergarten all the way to adults, so feel comfortable that you'll grow in your conversational skills, as well as, beginner vocabulary. Let me highlight that I'm passionate about "phonetics," which is the study and classification of speech sounds. In other words, you are going to learn how to sound like a native speaker when you take my class.

Why do I like to bring art and music into the learning journey? Let me tell you one of the biggest secrets I've dis
covered. Art and music can allow you to make a joyful memory, which takes the fleeting moment into the longterm part of your brain, causing you to remember more and put it into what you call "muscle memory" all because you're happy!

Speaking of the arts, I play guitar, ukulele, charango, piano, and I sing! I've been a musician since 2000, and I've successfully turned a hobby into something my husband and I have been doing full time for several years. For beginners, something that works best is taking a song that you LOVE and turning it into your anthem on the instrument of your choice. So pick your song and message me!

Last but not least, I'm a painter. Painting is my favorite part of any day. About my childhood, I can candidly say I had the best stepmom. She would let me take her enormous canvases, oil paints, and brushes and just let me at it. Of course at first they were all of my hand prints and rainbows, but she got me curious, and eventually we started going to museums.
