I am an adult who has no experience with any type of instrument and was very nervous and intimidated at first. Then I met with Michael, and though there was a ton of information we had to go through, he really made me feel at ease. He has the knowledge, patience, and understanding I was really looking for in a teacher and I'm so happy I found him!

With his flexibility and willingness to accommodate us my daughter learned a lot from him. He was a wonderful teacher and a great person to do business with.

Private Classical Piano Teacher

I have a big experience teaching students all levels and ages. My goal is to keep the joy of music making for each and every student, but also to make sure you learn and advance after each lesson. I would happily work with you on the music you want, combining it with the specific piano techniques you need to have in order to play the instrument well.

About Kseniya

I have been teaching violin from young children to beginner adults for 10 years. I also teach piano for beginner and intermediate levels.
I believe that the the music potential comes through discipline, self-motivation and passion. As a teacher, my goal is to get to know each of my students and create individually tailored lessons according to my student's needs and goals. I believe that a strong technical foundation is a key in music making - when a student feels comfortable playing the instrument , they find how much they are capable of doing and what a great joy is this music making process. This is why I put a strong emphasis on the technical aspects. They say "practice makes perfect", but in reality only perfect practice makes your playing perfect, in other words, my goal as a teacher, is to give my students all the right tools to

succeed, when after each lesson you feel you improved your playing and gained new skills, even if its a small one.
Lessons are taught using a Traditional method refer to students learning to read music. Whereas the Suzuki Method students learn by ear which I (might) use for very young students age 3-5. For older students I use certain aspects of the Suzuki method but definitely incorporate basic theory and note reading as early as possible.
All students will have the opportunity and are encouraged to perform in recitals.

Private Classical Piano Teacher

I have been playing the piano since I was five years old, and when I began I didn't particularly like playing. Because of that, I have learned how to make it fun for young aspiring pianists. When we begin, we will of course learn basic technique and simple classical songs, but we will also learn simple arrangements of popular songs that will catch your child's attention. As we progress through the learning process, the student's input will be very important to me. We will learn songs that are important to their growth, and songs that they want to perform.
I believe that if the student wants to play the piano, they should learn songs that they want to learn while simultaneously learning correct technique and methods that will help them to eventually learn pieces without the support or help of a teacher.

About Kaitlin

Hi! My name is Kaitie Chan and I am so excited to hopefully work with you!
I have been playing the piano since I was five years old and have been singing for just as long, and have been helping to teach beginner students for the past year.
I have two main focuses in teaching - one, learning correct technique and skills that will help you to continue playing piano for the rest of your life, and two, learning songs and pieces that interest you!
Once we learn some basic piano pieces, we can branch out to many other skills, including learning how to sing and play the piano at the same time, learning how to write songs, learning how to create mashups, learning jazz piano skills, and many more. I have a highly diversified skill set and would love to help you learn what you want to learn!

Private Classical Piano Teacher

My piano lessons balance building solid foundational skills with discovering and supporting my student's individual passion for music. Every one of you have a unique reason for pursuing music in your life and you have a unique set of goals. I work with you to accomplish those goals in a way that best fits your personal learning style and lifestyle. With children my primary objective is to grow the child's love for music and sense of play and excitement regarding the piano. We work together through challenges and with games to build confidence and curiosity. We find music that the student is motivated and excited to play. I cannot wait to meet you, let's play!

About Jennifer

Hello! My background was in classical piano. From age 7 to age 18 I was in lessons with a Julliard trained pianist who had me involved with the National Piano Guild. I ended up going to school to study physics, and in my free time began my journey into blues and jazz piano while still indulging in my classical roots. Years after school I found a wonderful music school in Hood River, OR that welcomed me in and trained me to be a music educator. I taught piano there for two years before relocating to the Twin Cities. Music education has become my primary passion, and I especially love inventing imaginative games to help children to have fun while learning so that they not only stick with music, but they build confidence and find their musical strengths.

Private Classical Piano Teacher

With ten years of teaching experience, I’ve learned which skills to emphasize most for beginners to become lifelong, independent musicians. A focus on music literacy and love of the instrument has my students reading (and PLAYING) in no time! Each lesson is tailored to individual goals and interests, and I take a creative approach with everything we do!

About Vanessa

Vanessa Christian is a soprano, music instructor and teaching artist living in Minneapolis, MN. Growing up in a tiny town on the Canadian border, Vanessa immersed herself in all things music from a very young age, falling in love with everything from Alanis Morissette to Les Miserables to Rachmaninoff, and everything in between. She is excited to pass on her passion for all things musical to her students.

Vanessa has a vocal music degree from Bemidji State University, with continued graduate work in opera, musical theatre, and modern American music at Longy School of Music of Bard College in Cambridge, MA. Other creative and scholastic pursuits have led her to places like New York, Italy, and Berlin, performing contemporary and classical opera, musical theatre, and choral works in nine different countries by the age of 30.

Specializing

in teaching practical piano to aspiring singers has caused Vanessa to examine what skills are necessary for anyone to become a self-sufficient, life-long musician. Whether you’re learning as a hobby or in hopes of a future career, music literacy and expression are at the top of the list. Miss Vanessa emphasizes both from the very beginning with motivating joy and a creative approach.

Equally comfortable with children and adults from complete beginners to early advanced levels, Vanessa teaches piano, voice, and combined piano and voice lessons. She feels so grateful to be a part of her students’ musical journey!

"let me just say i was so impressed by Katarina, she is very good. I had another piano teacher but Katarina really impressed me. She is excellent. I am al

...
Nicole
"Remi is very professional, but still makes lessons fun and light-hearted. I especially appreciate his need of explaining that when he critiques, it is not
out of malice, but rather, out of wanting you to do your absolute best that he knows you are capable of doing. He believes in you, and that's an incredibly important trait to have being a teacher!

I love the incentives he gives, as well. This means that when you play "perfectly", he offers to accompany you with his guitar. When this happens for me, I feel like I am an accomplished pianist. I cannot wait for lessons every week. He and his wife are both absolute joys to be around in general!"

Darrell
"Mr. Jae has a serious approach to his teaching style. He stresses doing little things well that will make you a better player."

"Laurel taught my kids piano lessons for several years. When she moved away, she proved impossible to replace. She really cared about the kids' learning. F
or example, when my son seemed to connect better with the process and logic behind the music, she got him started composing his own! Both kids benefited greatly from Laurel's teaching and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a piano teacher."

"Never thought l could to be able to learn a Bach invention before. Now I’m playing it. Very enthusiastic teacher."

"For more than a decade I have followed Tamari’s piano performances, compositions, choir direction, and performances of her students. The results have been
superb as attested by audiences, colleagues, and those under her direction, including former performers with the Metropolitan Opera and other distinguished musicians.

I am delighted to learn that she has decided to take some additional fortunate students, including beginners. I have also witnessed excellent performances by her justifiably proud beginner students.

I am pleased to recommend Tamari as an excellent music teacher of piano, voice, or composition for students of any level.

Sincerely,

Robert D. Johnson"
