I teach mostly from the John Thompson book methods. My style is very easy and relaxed, but focused and goal oriented. I'm an easy guy to get along with, and I love teaching all ages of students, from 8 to 80.
I am a father, grandfather and great grandfather and enjoy teaching all ages privately one on one, using positive reinforcement. I put myself in the student's place, present methods of learning new things and work together with him/her to learn it and have fun while doing it.
I mainly work with suzuki method that seems to work with little children from 3 years old onwards. But i also feel the importance of teaching the normal method which also allows the students the freedom to read scores and become independents. I combine both of them successfully.
My only teaching method is that I only care about developing the most natural technique and musicality. I don’t stick to any “methods” because teaching piano requires the most flexible and individual approach while keeping the highest standards of education no matter the age or current level of the students.
I studied piano in my youth with seven years of piano and recitals. I played flute and piccolo and participated in school bands for seven years. I studied voice and received A's in my college courses and recognition from a international singer when studying through a studio that they were affiliated with.
I truly love sharing the gift of music with my students! As a professional musician for over 20 years, I can help beginners all the way up to advanced students studying saxophone, flute, clarinet, piano, music theory, composition, arranging and improvisation. My focus is always to help my students build their skills and confidence, step-by-step.
I have studied organ and piano since I was 9 years old. I graduated from MCC in McHenry, IL with a focus on piano and theory. My training is classically based. I write music for my students as well as prepared and arrange songs for my students in the level they are in. My students pick the songs they want to learn.
For me the main thing is to understand what the student wants and to help him achieve the expected goal. Having a classical school of composition, I am an excellent music theorist, I always reveal to the student the form of a musical work, as well as the way this work was written.
Based on my education, training, and experience I have developed an approach that can be summarized in four rules. 1. The notes and the music are not the same thing. 2. Technique and interpretation are the same thing. 3. Practicing is practical and 100% goal oriented. 4. Hard work is never in vain. This approach is flexible and works with all ages and levels.
I think it is important to first find out what kind of musician you want to be. Do you want to.. - Learn popular songs to play for your family? - Learn classical or jazz songs? - Become a professional musician? - Practice ear training and chords to further your music career Theres no one answer and every reason you want to play is a good one.
My teaching method is based off of each student. I have learned over the years that not just one method works for every child or adult. One of the most important things to me is finding a positive mix between ear training, technique, note reading, and building overall confidence each lesson.
I am a music graduate with a diploma in interdisciplinary studies, and I teach at all levels of music theory, from beginner to advanced. My teaching method is simple; I approach each topic at its most basic level. In that way, it will be much easier for the student to grasp each and every topic.
I teach piano through traditional reading, using materials based on the learner's age. I teach classical voice, starting with vocalizing and folk songs, moving into classical repertoire.
I like to tailor my teaching approach to each individual. I believe that we all learn in different ways and learning music should be accessible and exciting for you whether you are a visual learner or a kinesthetic learner; a natural or someone who requires a little more cooking time; from a musical family or having never seen a sheet of music in your life.
My teaching method is simple - every person and every student is different. What might work wonderfully as a learning tactic for one student, could be the absolute last resort for another. So, I work on a student-by-student basis, designing lesson plans that cater to the strengths and weaknesses of individuals. I have worked with students as young as four, up through adults.
My methodology is: work smarter, not harder. Technique is of the upmost importance to achieve musical goals without damage to the musician. I give lessons up to college level voice (especially audition cuts and musical theatre singing) and up to intermediate guitar/ukulele/piano. I will expect students to warm up before a lesson as well as with me at the beginning of each session.
My training in piano started from when I was 5 years old. Since then, I continuously took piano lesson and have had performed on the stage as well. I continued my training in piano until the end of my undergraduate at the University of Hartford under David Westfall, Paul Rutman, Susan Cheng and Grace Smith.
I'm currently enrolling Berklee College of Music undergraduate program (with full scholarship), and this is my 5th semester. I mainly teach Jazz piano, and music theory (both Jazz and Classical). My uniqueness as a teacher would be a huge amount of resources and examples that I can offer you during classes.
I am currently pursuing a bachelors degree in Music Education. My primary instrument is voice, but I have 12 years of piano background. I am offering piano instruction online for beginners, instructing in playing the piano as well as general music knowledge (such as reading notes on the staff, writing music, basic music theory).
Each student is unique in their own way and I adapt a lesson plan that will accomplish their goals so they can read and play music. I work with them to teach them how to practice correctly, since they spend most of their time without teaching guidance and it is important that they develop great practice habits to be successful.
My teaching method is based on the child but is, for the most part, a classical curriculum which dives into music history, theory, technique, performance and repertoire. My goal is not for you to have to drag your child to each lesson but for him to develop a new appreciation and passion for the beauty of music.
My teaching method is to teach the basics in an individual way per student. I find early on what the students best method of learning is and I teach them in a way they can access the information easily.
Hi there! My name is Ryan and I am a recent grad from UC Davis. I love working with people and want to be able to pass on my love for playing the piano. I cater my methods to each person and depending on what they want to do with the piano whether it be reading music, chord progressions or accompaniment playing.
I will base my classes in what is most important for the student to be successful. Whatever they need to move along the most efficient. I will move at a pace that is good for them and their learning method.
I'm an adaptive teacher, whatever level my student's knowledge is in the given field, together we assess goals and tangible milestones and I put together a game plan specific to us. Each student is different, so that's how we approach every class.
I believe in a flexible manner of instruction responsive to age, personality, ability, and background of each individual. I have taught students with autistic and minor learning disabilities and have learned to be flexible in terms of methods and materials I use, as well as expectations and goals for each student.
I am a graduate of the University of Arizona. I have received a Bachelors Degree in Music Education. I am also a certified teacher in the state of Texas, as well as Arizona. My certification is for Kindergarten through High School, all levels of music. I have a certification to teach general classes at the Elementary Level K-5th grade from Sam Houston University.
I am a jazz pianist and composer. I teach each lesson with a simple to understand, chord and ear training methodology. Vocals and lyric making are only added when a student displays enough competence in piano mechanics and sound structuring.
I have taught public school music (almost all areas: choral/band/keyboard/theory/theater) for grades K-12, and taught privately from ages 5-adult.
Graduated from Montclair State University. I studied piano privately for 14 years and have been playing for 20 years total. I studied classical and jazz with a world renowned pianist for many years but identify as a contemporary/fly finger player.

Thousands of teachers can teach you piano. Find private lessons closest to you.
It's truly fascinating how chords and scales come together to produce a beautiful melody. By learning to play the piano, you can play your favorite songs anytime you feel like. What's more, the longer you practice, the better you get. But, how to get started? Three words: private piano lessons. Piano is not something you can learn in a classroom. Learning this craft requires personal attention, wherein, the piano teacher is able to give you one-on-one lessons, judge your capabilities, and go about the teaching according to your pace and grasping power. Piano teachers create a specific set of lessons for each of their students, so that the students learn all the bits and nuances, and ultimately, master the craft.
Apart from piano, there are a variety of other musical instruments you can learn through private tutoring, such as the flute, trumpet, trombone, and even Djing. Many private tutors teach multiple instruments; a skilled flute or trombone tutor is capable of giving Djing lessons too. Similarly, you can learn to play a variety of woodwind instruments from transverse flute teachers who're learned flutists. By learning to play multiple instruments, you can really carve your niche as a successful artist in the world of music.
