Private Piano Teacher

We will work on whatever style the student will like to learn! If they are a beginner, we will go through all of the basics slowly and very thoroughly. I like to start by having my students get familiar with the piano and exploring all of the sounds it can make. Students will learn how to identify notes on the piano and also through reading music. Lessons will always be fun and engaging!

Online Piano Teacher

After teaching elementary music in the public schools and operating a private music studio for 47 years, I retired from public school teaching in June. Since March, because of the coronavirus, I have been teaching lessons entirely online. I strive to personalize lessons to suit each student's learning style, ability and personal goals. My master's thesis was Developing an Approach for Beginning Group Piano Instruction. As a composer myself, I strongly encourage my students to understand music theory and to explore writing music of their own. I believe in strong sight-reading skills while supporting their natural abilities to learn by ear. The ultimate goal with all students is to develop a life-long love for music in order to make it a permanent part of their lives!

About Darrell

My goal is to personalize a music lesson that is designed around each student’s learning style, skill level, schedule and interests. My specialty is in teaching elementary age students, but I have taught all ages, including adults through the years. My philosophy for teaching involves these eleme

Online Piano Teacher

Whether you desire traditional piano lessons, or a more simplified, progressive method tailored just for your specific needs, we can get you to the place you want to be!

I teach a simple, and broken down system of music theory and piano that is ideal for the vocalist, songwriter, and beginner or intermediate pianist to quickly grasp and apply to their practice! It is the perfect method for the vocalists/ songwriters to be able to accompany themselves using basic piano chords within the first few lessons!

If desired, I teach traditional piano lessons out of the Alfred's books for children and adults, which are wonderful tools to help cover all grounds of sight-reading, technique, scales, repertoire, and music theory. Incorporating tried and true tools like flash cards are also essential in helping students quickly and wholly memorize notes of piano along with correlating position on staff (sheet music.)

Note: Most often, I teach a combination of the two methods, and ...

Anna is adept at teaching adults. My wife and I are in our late twenties with no music background at all, and she has done a great job at both introducing the theory behind the music and keeping the lessons simple enough to progress and enjoy. It is an even greater testament to her skill that she is able to teach in this way in a completely online format. Anna knows how to get the most out of her students and is extremely passionate about helping them improve, even contacting them outside of lesson time to check on their progress. We would recommend Anna to anyone!
Allyson King
We arrived to Anna after my son took piano lessons elsewhere with little progress. My son is interested in music, but lacked the confidence to push through skills he found challenging. This has changed under Anna’s direction, and our son is making excellent progress. We find Anna to be extremely knowledgeable and competent, and her passion for piano shows. Anna is patient and gentle, but she will undoubtedly push your child to do their best. She will get to know your child to determine their interests and work with them to achieve their goals. Highly recommended!
Julia
I have taken lessons with Anna since I was seven years old (currently age 18). I began knowing nothing about the piano or music theory. Neither of my parents can play the piano. I was a beginner in every sense of the word. Now, I have not only a deep love and appreciation for music, but also an advanced musical capacity and repertoire. I have played pieces from a variety of styles and time periods, from Claude Debussy to Mozart to Hadyn to jazz and contemporary. I was able to have a personal high school senior recital and share this love and talent with others. In high school, I completed a music theory and composition course with ease.

I cannot recommend Anna enough. Her dedication and patience is unparalleled and she cares so deeply for her students. She is methodical, attentive, thoughtful, and is an absolute hidden gem of a teacher. Anna opened a world of music to me and I don’t think I can ever truly express how much that means to me. Not only am I a better musician because of her, but I’m also a better person. Her attention to detail and passion have challenged the way that I approach work and hobbies beyond just music.

Anna is particularly skilled as an educator. Beyond simply giving information for students to practice or memorize, she helps them apply the concepts to real musical pieces, guiding them along the way. Her calm but advanced method of teaching helps students advance quickly through musical concepts.

Over the past eleven years, I have spent literally hundreds of hours with Anna honing my craft. If anyone has seen the extent of her talent as a teacher, I’d like to think it’s me.

Five stars out of five stars. Always.

2 Effective Techniques for Smoothing Out Your Legato

What are the best exercises for practicing legato music on the piano? Here, Helendale, CA teacher Sylvia S. offers her tips and tricks for mastering the technique... Legato… a beautiful and mysterious word that brings images of a pair of swans gracefully gliding on the placid waters of a still lake. In the phrasing of the Italian renaissance, the time and place where the language of music was born, legato meant tied, bound, or connected. In terms of legato music, it means this and more. …
