About Karen

Karen obviously loves the piano & guitar. She’s probably an excellent teacher for those instruments. Why do I say that? That’s what she talked about! She spent half my lesson trying to convince me to learn one of those instruments. Could work on listening skills! Not even sure if she owns a set of bongos herself. Didn’t start teaching me anything until last 10 min & then I had to leave early anyway. So 50 min out of 60 and about 5 I actually learned a few things I could have been practicing for at least 30 min of class. Use her if you want to learn something else other than bongos.

Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC

Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

Music is all about you. My piano lessons are dedicated to you, refining your abilities, sharpening your ears, and incorporating enhanced levels of creativity. With a background also in composition I have a wide experience in not only performing but writing music, which gets me in close and personal to the inner workings. I have a wide range of knowledge in history and repertoire to engage students outside the realm of normal and often overplayed repertoire.

Especially during major world events, the need for art and mediums where humans can express their emotion are of vital importance. "Practice makes proficiency” - this is true for music as well as life. Mistakes are inevitable but it is mistakes that allow us to grow and achieve greater things. I will patiently and effectively work with you to refine the mistakes and achieve proficiency in your journey through music.

I am extremely personable and am an excellent listener. I graduated from the Hartt School and went to the New

Learn to play piano artistically from a degreed, experienced teacher.
I have successfully taught all ages. I have taught private lessons at my private studio, at an elementary school, at a conservatory, and in a group setting in the continuing education division of a university.
My lessons are taught in an environment of sensitivity and patience, praise and encouragement, while a professional atmosphere is maintained. Interesting pieces promote a student's dedication. Lessons include development of note reading, rhythm, theory, sight reading and musicianship. Technical development is included in lessons through performance of scales, chords, and arpeggios. Accuracy is taught with gentle correction.

About Elise

Elise has a wonderful piano studio! She is an excellent teacher and works at your individual pace while challenging you to grow and learn. Her recitals are amazing; they provide an interesting showcase of mastery and progress at all levels. Whether preparing to compete, or simply playing for enjoyment, Elise’s studio will instill a lifelong love of music through her kindness and teaching. Five Stars.
Alice
We used Elise's Piano Studio for nine years of outstanding teaching for my son. When he began at seven years old, he didn't have any music or piano experience, but Mrs. Elise's instruction grew him musically and also taught him discipline, focus, and confidence. Because of her expert teaching in theory, he has been able to pick up several instruments since then. Mrs. Elise is a true and natural
teacher who is solid in her piano skill and theory: however, she is extremely kind and makes nervous students feel comfortable and at ease. I cannot recommend Elise's Piano Studio highly enough. Without our experience here, my son would not be where he is today, both musically, academically, and personally.

If Kathryn realizes that a concept is difficult or overwhelming for a student to process or execute , she will always come up with different ways to approach the students needs so that they can improve and truly hone in on their artistry and musicianship. I highly recommend Kathryn. Kathryn is great for all levels because she truly aims to help her students achieve their goals. You will leave your lessons feeling inspired and motivated to practice.

"Maria is not your average piano teacher. She does not merely teach you to play the piano--she teaches you to feel the music, to really experience it and, most importantly, to enjoy it. As an advanced adult student, I went through a few different teachers before finally finding Maria. I am so glad I did! She is taking my playing to a whole new level and going over my technique with a fine-toothed comb. I cannot recommend her enough!!"

"I have been studying piano with Joseph for nearly five years. In that time, I’ve learned more about the piano and musical interpretation than I ever thought possible.

Joseph’s technical ‘short cuts’ are amazing! He illustrates ways for your hands and your mind to work that are tailor made for you. Learning from him is so fun it seems almost effortless.

The way Joseph teaches allows you to develop at your own pace. The atmosphere is always relaxed yet everything moves along quickly.

At the open classes I attend, his other students are progressing very rapidly too. After each class, we share our impressions. The mood is elated because it feels like we stepped back in time and into history.

Joseph often quotes inspired wisdom of his historic teachers in our lessons. He is a great inspiration on his own with great musical insights.

I’m playing Beethoven and Chopin works I never thought I could approach at this stage of study, with great depth of understanding. I now play with greater passion and skill, get compliments from everyone I play for, and no longer worry about playing in public.

I look forward to each and every lesson with Joseph. His encouragement and support makes learning so rewarding! Anyone who finds this musical treasure is a lucky person and I cannot recommend him highly enough."
