Private Classical Piano Teacher

An experienced educator specializing in student-focused lessons. Not every method will work for every student, therefore I will seek to customize the lessons to the students. My goal is to guide the students in reaching their goals and helping them enjoy the process. My skill areas are classical training, music theory, sight-reading, playing with expression, rhythms, chords and keys, accompanying, church music, error correction, and proper positioning. All ages and skill levels are welcome. Questions are welcome.

Looking for experience? Customized lessons? Encouraging feedback? Positive error correction? With a wide range of teaching experiences and a love of education, I am always searching for the best methods for my students. Seeking the best way to guide my students began with my education d

Gwen is a fantastic teacher! Several years ago, my then 3rd grader joined Gwen's homeschool one day a week for science, PE, field trips and recorder lessons. My daughter had a fabulous time! Gwen really is one of the best, most well-rounded homeschool teachers I know and is capable of integrating beyond these specific subjects she teaches. She really listens to your goals, concerns and needs and is creative in coming up with solutions... All so your child can learn most effectively!

Gwen did a fantastic job of teaching my struggling writer annotating literature and writing. She answered all of his questions, and gave advice when he struggled to understand the content. Her consistently positive attitude and outlook was a real encouragement to him.

Mrs. Amiri is so much fun! I learned so much from her and she is so enthusiastic about music and teaching.

I have been teaching this subject for over 16 years. The main curriculum for beginners is Alfred's Basic Piano Library. There are three beginner levels (beginner, late, adult) and one will be selected after the first meeting. For non-beginning students, the course of study will be developed based on past experience, current abilities, and goals. It is not necessary to know how to read music at the first lesson for beginners. However, learning to read is a part of subsequent lessons. Music is not learned "by ear." A certain amount of theory will be a part of every lesson just as technique and repertoire. Students should come to the first lesson prepared to discuss their background & goals and the plan of their course of study.

Troy is an absolutely magical teacher and mentor. He not only provides caring, personalized instruction that goes far beyond the traditional fundamentals, he really takes the time to push me in ways that I find enjoyable and rewarding. I feel as though my lessons are dynamic and varied enough to keep me always engaged and looking forward to that next session. Best of all, Troy is that special type of guru that really gives you that added incentive to go the extra mile...I never feel a guilt or pressure to be at a certain level or practice a certain amount, I just feel this desire to impress Troy during my next lessons. Awesome stuff - very special guy! Looking forward to a lifetime of learning with Troy!

Private Classical Piano Teacher

I understand that every student has different goals in learning piano. I work with each student to build a strong foundation in his/her technique and knowledge, as well as expand his/her overall musical education. I always keep each student’s goals in mind and plan the lessons in the direction of achieving those goals.

I believe the development of musicianship is a lifelong commitment and one of the most rewarding paths to follow. I hope to encourage students to always have music in their lives, whether it is a hobby or something they want to study more deeply.

*Note: I currently do not have a studio location and only offer online lessons throughout the United States. I will be sure to let students know when things change.

About Gayaneh

I began training in classical piano at age 6 at the International School of Music (now known as the Armenian Folk Cultural Center & ISM) in Glendale, California. I currently continue my studies of piano and piano pedagogy, always striving to become a better pianist and teacher.

Ruthy has been a great instructor. I started with her knowing very little about the piano. I have been working with her once a week and am seeing great improvement. I am learning notes, chords, and understand music. She makes learning fun and helps you to achieve playing songs that you really like and enjoy.

I took acoustic guitar lessons with Adam and he was a wonderful teacher. I had little knowledge of the guitar and felt I developed my skills quickly. Adam was patient, nice and came up with fun exercises and song selections. Would highly recommend Adam as a teacher!

"Mr. Cooper is an experienced teacher. He teaches piano, violin & vocal from basic to advance level. My son has been taking piano classes from him for the past 3+ years. He loves to go to Mr. Cooper's classes. The foremost quality in Mr. Cooper is that he seeks perfection and tries to imbibe the same in his students. He encourages all his students to perform their best and is extremely patient in dealing with his students. Mr. Cooper lets me sit in my son's lessons and I got my 101 on classical music with these sessons. I can appreciate what my son plays and also now able to appreciate classical music in general.
Mr. Cooper encourages all his students to participate in IMA annual contests and puts a lot of effort in preparing his students for the same."
