View Full Profile

I include technique, note-reading, literature, and theory in each of my lessons. Students should have access to a piano or a weighted keyboard before signing up. If the student is the creative type, I encourage improvisation and composition as well.

About Hsiao-Lan
I have been playing the piano since age 3 and violin since age 8. Besides regularly performing, teaching has been one of the most important things in my life. For more than 20 years, I have taught piano, violin, composition, theory, and music technology to music lovers of all ages. My students have gone on to win prizes both locally and nationally. I enjoy sharing with students my love for music in a nurturing atmosphere.

*** Lesson Details ***
Note-reading, technique, theory, improvisation, standard and not-so-standard pieces. Occasionally, we also include pop, jazz, blues, and musical theater works in our lessons. I have been described by my students as funny, strict, nice, and patient. I am not afraid to tell my students they need to step up the effort if I see potential in them to do well. I also know when to give them the support
when they feel frustrated. Students' interests will be taken into consideration for the pieces chosen and the style of lessons given. Teaching has always been my passion. I get to know the personality of my students so we can work together to bring out the musical talent in each of them. Student recital is held at least once every year. I encourage all students to participate in the recital.

*** Studio Equipment ***
One Yamaha upright piano and one Yamaha grand piano (for advanced students)

Dedicated chair for parents who choose to wait or observe during the lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***
N/A

*** Specialties ***
I am a classical musician by training, although I do play other styles as well.

Hsiao-Lan started teaching my 3 year old. She has incredible patience and shows the kids how much fun you can have while playing the piano. My daughter loved her and was always looking forward to her piano classes. I would highly recommend this teacher to anyone who is looking for their kids to have fun while they learn to play the piano. Unfortunately, we were not able to continue the classes but in a near future i would love for her to teach my daughter once again. Hsiao-Lan truly has a gift in teaching young children.

wonderful teacher

I asked my 10 year old son what rating I should give Dr. Wang and he said "5 stars". She is very patient and friendly when teaching my son who is a bit shy. She has chosen songs that are fun that he enjoys playing, and I never hear a complaint about going to lessons. She is helpful with all aspects of learning to play the piano, and I have noticed his playing becoming more personal rather than simply following notes.

classical piano

About Mei
I am an enthusiastic and fun teacher. I acquired my bachelor's and master's degree in piano performance. I started playing piano at the age of 6. Since I was 8 years old, I have been trained systematically and professionally throughout my years in school. My solo performances and recitals were held when I was attending the University of Wyoming. I have great passion towards performing in public, but I found greater love in teaching piano. I have 10 years of teaching experiences. I believe that the piano is our best friend and keep it close to our heart and shares this love with the world when we play.

*** Lesson details ***
Strict but fun and enthusiastic, these words were said by my students after years of teaching. In Piano lessons, I assign diverse music repertories in order to assist students to have the ability to grasp the essen
tials of each different style of music. Learning piano skills is very important, but note-reading, theory, ear training and music history can't be neglected. I will include all these subjects consistently during the lessons to help the students build stronger and richer musicality. One or two recitals will be provided by me, all the students are encouraged to participate in the recitals.Students are also encouraged to take advanced performance opportunities, in church, school, and joint studio recitals. I must be notified at least one month in advance if the student desires to participate in the events.

Students responsibility:
-Daily practice is strongly recommended. It is important and necessary for steady progress.
-Students should have neat, clean, trimmed nails at every lesson.
-Students must be prepared for each lesson.

Parents responsibility:
-Parents should promptly pick up their children at the end of each lesson.
-Parents should regularly check and support the students practice routine.

*** Studio Equipment ***
One Yamaha piano, space for parents to sit and observe lessons.

*** Specialties ***
classical piano,music theory, ear-training

IMPORTANT NOTE: the studio space is inhabited by an energetic, adorable Jack Russel terrier. Do consider this when you plan to sign up for lessons.

Perfect class for those interested in starting a path to learn music, music theory, ear training, or have just always been interested in an instrument but have never known where to begin. Piano is so much fun to learn. Students will start with basic techniques and learn to play chords, scales and learn music theory and to site read.

About Rachel
I started my musical path in a Ballet Studio. I fell in love with the crackle of the vinyl record playing as I learned to listen and dance with the rhythm.

I started playing the guitar when I was in elementary and took classical lessons until I was a teenager.I really enjoy the art of practice and the journey of patience. The process of learning has helped me carve out and cultivate my style of music. It's opened up a lot of doors for me in my life. I've had the honor to play with a lot of great performers and have been lucky enough to tour the U.S. and Canada with festivals and showcases such as Vans Warped Tour, South By Southwest and the Halifax Pop Explosion.I've been the opening act for Carolyn Wonderland, Maria Taylor, Tsunami Bomb, Tilly and the Wall, Basia Bulat, Rise Against, Strike Anywhere. Anathallo, Cursive, Milton Hopki
ns, and Pony Up.

When I have free time I volunteer with the Houston Chapter of Girls Rock Camp to help teach girls empowerment through songwriting and music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I began teaching as an afterschool job when I was 16. I was homeschooled, so I feel that the experience taught me that everyone learns differently and that there is not just one standardized method to playing music.

My teaching style varies with each student, but the one constant is my ability to make each and every client I encounter completely fall in LOVE with music. It's my super power.

Lesson plans are tailored for your specific needs and to help you achieve your musical goals and aspirations at your desired pace. I enjoy my students and making music with them.

Here is an overview of the lessons that I provide.

Guitar:
Finger Picking, Song Writing, Rhythm, Lead, Scales,Modes & Ear Training.

Songwriting and composition: Learn techniques, how to brain storm and plot your musical story line. This class pairs great with vocal lessons or guitar lessons.

Bass:
Scales, Rhythm, Beginner and Advanced song structure, Ear Training

Ukulele :
Technique, Intro to Chords, Ear Training, Strumming patterns - Ukulele is one of my favorite classes to teach. You simply can not help but smile when playing this instrument!

Vocals :
Breathing techniques, Scales, Harmonizing

About Alty N.

Close
Houston, TX
View Full Profile

I very much like but not take it seriously with an American way of learning skills by just having fun lessons without committed practice. I trust in every child’s sense of understanding and smart motivation.
Russian school of teaching piano is traditionally the best due to centuries of polishing teaching skills by greatest musicians and teachers. We strive to master both technique and artistry. However, in reality, to achieve this might be a challenge. A fun makes it better. I use a combined American and Russian approach. To help students keep progressing, balancing between hard work and fun attitude, between technical skills and artistically emotional performance is my philosophy and passion.

About Alty
My name is Ms. Alty, I am a professional pianist, Piano teacher, and educator in a great state of Texas, have been a teacher for 15 years. I teach all of the levels of Piano, from early beginners to advanced. My educational background is Russian Classical School of Piano, which is recognized as one of the Best Schools in the World. I have a Diploma of Piano Teacher and Concertmeister.
I love to see how my students grow in their practice and getting more and more excitement playing piano and enjoying the Classical Music. I look at every student as an intellectual person first and foremost. I believe that everyone has different personalities and characteristics. The more I can learn about the piano student the more I can tailor the method and lessons to fit every student perfectly.

Ms. Alty is a very patient yet thorough piano teacher. Since we left our hometown for Houston, it's been really difficult getting a piano teacher that matches the same talent as our previous teacher. We had gone through 4 teachers in Houston. However finding Ms. Alty was like finding a rare gem at the top of the mountain.
She is very knowledgeable and has the skills to get a child to listen and actually want to practice. My children have improved tremendously and actually started playing more complicated musical piece.
My children love Ms. Alty and always look forward to having their piano class. I would recommend Ms. Alty if you're looking for a very musically knowledgeable and talented piano teacher who is both firm and gentle when teaching,

I graduated from a well-known music school called Oberlin Conservatory, studied with the director of piano department Prof. Robert Shannon. Later I received my piano performance Master degree in University of Houston, studied with one of the best teacher in Houston — Prof. Nancy Weems. I received full scholarship throughout my career.

I have been teaching piano for 4 years, I’m very good at improving techniques and sight reading skills, many of my students had huge improvement after a few lessons. There is no technical problem that I can’t tackle. I tend to go over books really fast so that you can learn much more in a short period of time, instead of wasting time on the same kind of material, I will make sure you learn some new stuff every week.

About Billy
I’m a professional pianist, I got my Bachelor degree in piano performance in one of the best music schools—Oberlin Conservatory, at the mean time receiving four year scholarships. Then finished my Master degree in Moore’s school of music, study with the well known piano teacher— Prof. Nancy Weems.

I have taken piano lessons before but nobody has ever explained the music terms to me like Mr. Miron has done in the last month I've been taking lessons with him. I can honestly say that after every lesson I've learned something new. Mr.Miron is very patience and encourages you when things get a little difficult. His lessons are fun and full of new content each time. The book he uses to teach is easy to understand and includes work sheets throughout to help you review the content.He studio is always clean and organized.

Luis is a humble, patient and compassionate instructor. He displays a genuine love for teaching and is clearly committed to his students success. He is your cheerleader-of-sorts. Meaning, when you feel flustered with yourself he's the one who keeps a positive attitude and puts your mind back into that "I can do this" thinking pattern. I'm confident that anyone who enlists the help of this outstanding instructor will surely be happy with his work.

My 8 year old daughter has been studying piano for the past 2 months, he's flexible with timing and very patient with my child, she has learned more than I expected. I put her in his class because I heard that piano helps progress children's mind in mathimatics and other subjects and she has actually done better in her classes ever since she started.

I took classical guitar first then piano because I got my nails done. Luis is a very patient teacher and advances his lessons according to your pace. He not only encourages you to continue the classes, but pushes you to practice at home atleast 30 minutes to work out the fingering in guitar and the hand placements for piano. I've been with him for 4 months and planning to continue, he has always kept his home clean and his work space organized. Luis offers in Spanish and English and has been very patient with my frustration when I don't get things right.

I hope you are having a great day so far. A little bit about myself - I've recently graduated from Rice University with my Master's of Music degree. I am a concert pianist, as well as a professional figure skater. I have toured with the production Holiday On Ice in Europe, performing both as a figure skater and a live musician.
Most importantly though, I have a passion for teaching and love to help my students improve. There is nothing more satisfying than communicating knowledge that I've learned to my students and see the progress build throughout the months of hard work. I have taken piano pedagogy courses throughout my undergraduate and master's studies, and am comfortable with teaching students of all ages and levels.
My piano teaching studio is set up at my apartment in Downtown, and I teach ice skating at the Galleria mall, Memorial city mall, as well as the Bellerive Ice Center.
