I have been teaching piano in the Seattle area for close to ten years. I have worked with young beginners to intermediate and some advanced students. My methods are eclectic and I often draw from the Kodaly Method for beginners. I encourage my students to sing along while they play to reinforce learning, accessing multiple neural pathways.

I teach my students to read music and play with feeling and heart. I instill a love of music in my students by creating musical moments in them and expose them to a wide variety of genres and styles. Students will learn basic technique, theory, improvisation, and performance etiquette, all while having fun!

Here are the core things that I focus on in Piano lessons.

Alignment is the basis a great technique. Each person is different, and knowing how to help them release unwanted tension is critical.
Building hand coordination is essential to playing piano. A variety of agility and strengthening exercises will help you gain greater control and comfort in playing.

Articulation and phrasing is how pianists convey emotion. By Understanding the different colors available, a performer can create a dynamic and moving experience.

Selecting songs for your skill level and interest is important. Playing music you love will make your experience more enjoyable

Young multilingual (English, Cantonese, and Mandarin) piano and violin teacher who combines the formal traditional Eastern style of teaching, and the fun approach of Western style of teaching into his music lessons.

Fun lessons but also challenging
- I believes that fun lessons are easy to gain young student interest, but it often lack to give them motivation. In the lessons, I often challenge my students, let them be self-motivated and become a better musician.

Techniques
- I focus lessons on teaching proper techniques with their instruments. With my experiences in taking lessons from American, Chinese, and Russian teachers, I learnt a great spectrum of techniques and I would like to teach my students what I had learn.

Learning pieces and other related topics
- Playing pieces and songs is only a small part of learning to play an instrument. In our lessons, we would also cover proper music theory, and ear-training.

I have been teaching students from pre-k to retirement age. Early ...

Piano is the basis of western music, the foundation for music theory, and a vital analogy for all other instruments. Every musician and singer benefits from studying piano, and every individual can find satisfaction in creating music from this beautiful instrument.

I emphasize physical relaxation technique, curiosity-driven exploration, and a comprehensive understanding of music through piano performance. It's ridiculously fun, and a challenge at every level. I specialize in ear training and songwriting/arranging, because that's the source of my own delight. Your enthusiasm is the fuel for progress, and I love finding ways to channel your interests into the love of piano.

My 3-camera technique allows you to see what's happening from a variety of angles, translating my actions over Zoom like you're in the room with me. Let's make time to play together.

“We teach music not so that children (or anyone else) can make beautiful music,
But because music makes beautiful people”.
– Anonymous & my favorite quote

I try hard to present students with a solid, broad based approach with an emphasis on understanding the fundamentals of musical comprehension, music reading, musical memory, and ear development. These are essential to playing and enjoyment of any instrument! To this end we cover theory, music history, performance, technique and practical application. These basics are supplemented and reinforced by the monthly group sessions, several annual field trips, access to regional, state and national music competitions and performances, as well as the formal Student Evaluations each Spring. I have a full music lab, an extensive library of music and music reference materials and up to date postings on local free or low cost musical events While I tend to emphasize classical music and technique, we will also cover a ...

"I am 23 years old and have been taking piano lessons with Glynis for close to a year. I can honestly say that my progress over this year has been amazing! As an adult beginner who never played the piano before, I was a little worried that it was too late for me to start learning but I was definitely wrong! Glynis has made it possible for me! She lets you go at your own pace so as not to make you feel overwhelmed or to become too frustrated and give up. Glynis never makes you feel hopeless if you do not get something right away which is something I'm sure any beginning pianist would be grateful for. She is always kind and helpful whenever I do not get something right away and is able to demonstrate it by playing it herself to allow me to know what it should sound like. She always incorporates some sort of theory into our lessons as well which allows me to better understand what I am actually doing on the piano which has helped my growth extensively. She lets you pick pieces that YOU want to learn and will help you through every step of the way to learn it. Glynis has showed me that I can tackle more challenging pieces by learning them line by line and starting slow which keeps me eager and determined to keep practicing! Glynis is the BEST! I look forward to taking lessons with her for years to come!"

"Teresa is an awesome teacher! She's a beauty inside and out. Aside from the fact about my son being musically inclined, she goes by the interests of my son or her students and still able to cover the important lessons he/they need to learn. She's got great rapport and very encouraging! I loved the way she said that this journey of my his is not about perfection but rather expression. I believe in her teaching strategies because my son learned so quickly and he was not pushed to learn rather inspired to learn more.

She also holds annual recitals which we got to experience during my son's early learning days with her and I'm proud of how he performed that brought tears of joy! Who does that? Loved everything about that recital and all of Teresa's efforts and service in teaching. I knew we were in the right place and found the best teacher!"

"I am a 50-something-year-old business executive who began taking beginner piano lessons with Susan Merdinger almost 5 years ago.

Now, I am performing Chopin Nocturnes and Preludes and cherished works by Mozart and Beethoven to name just a few.

My Mom let me quit piano lessons in 1967 when I was growing up on the Southside of Chicago. I spent the next 45 years regretting it.

Now, as my piano teacher, Susan is inspiring me to make up for lost time.

At the end of each year, I am amazed at being able to play pieces I couldn’t have imagined performing 12 months earlier. This satisfying achievement comes only because of Susan’s character and competence as a teacher and her passion and enthusiasm to motivate me to practice 1 to 2 hours every day.

Susan is patient while maintaining very high standards with a commitment to excellence. She celebrates the progress of all her students to whom she is dedicated. While waiting for my lesson to begin, I have watched in amazement as she interacts with a full studio of very diverse students, young and old, boys and girls, beginners and advanced, even handicapped blind and autistic students. I’ve watched as she’s brought smiles to all her students after their recitals and audiences after her own concerts.

And Susan is one of the smartest persons I know who is expanding my horizons of the classical repertoire I play and appreciation of the classical music I listen to. There is a special pride to see your piano teacher perform solo or with members of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra at historic venues in Chicago or New York City.

I am a busy executive, but my piano lesson is the highlight of the week, even if that entails a 90-minute battle in Chicagoland rush hour traffic to get to my lesson.

That’s because my life is richer with the music Susan imparts.

I can’t recommend her strongly enough."

"Excellent review

It's actually my son whose doing the piano with Ms. Maureen but I usually go with him each session since this is his first time taking lessons. Ms. Maureen is so welcoming and my son likes her so much. She is very detailed and patient with my son. Her skills reflects well with my son's progress. With just 2 sessions, my son can read notes and was able to follow simple music sheet. She gave him follow up practice at home during the week which encourages my son to do his piano lessons at least an hour a day."
