Students will work towards learning music by the great classical composers such as Mozart, Bach, Haydn, Beethoven, Kabalevsky, Schubert, Grieg and many more! In addition to classical studies, we will visit other genres of music including Jazz, Blues, Folk, Pop, etc. However, creating a classical foundation is fundamental and essential to developing proper technique and artistry.

First time playing piano? Resuming after years or decades of not playing the piano? No matter your age or experience, you can always learn and improve!

I have close to 10 years of tutoring experience, helping children and adults embrace piano and music.

I recommend just starting with a single lesson to see if we are good fits for each other and start a roadmap to progress toward your goals! My rates is for a one-off session, so it is extremely negotiable if we work together regularly.

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have. However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. Or maybe the teacher/professor is not the best

Private Classical Piano Teacher

Hello prospective students! The most important things are I love music and I work for you. I have a bachelor's degree in music composition and a piano performance minor from the Chicago College of Performing Arts.

I teach all ages from beginner to intermediate students. Lessons are catered to the goals of each student, no two lessons the same.

For young beginners I teach rhythm and pith and focus on ways to get them excited about music.

for older/intermediate students I offer lessons on piano performance, music theory and history, music composition and recording.

I believe that my job as teacher is to help you define your goals and achieve them. I am excited to teach piano performance, music theory and music history. I also have 5 years of professional recording experience for those who are interested in recording techniques and the industry. My philosophy towards teaching is spending ample time building a concrete foundation with core concepts to then build on. Please contact me ...

About Andrew

I am a graduate from the Chicago College of Performing Arts Conservatory with a Bachelor of Music Composition and a minor in piano performance. I have been playing piano and flute since 2006 and started composing/song writing in 2009. That passion drove me through collage to get my degree. While

Andrew teaches both my 8-year-old daughter (a beginner), as well as my 11-year-old daughter, who has been playing for several years. Aside from being highly competent, he makes the lesson stress-free, and fun for my children. We have opted, in the interim, to keep the lessons online, and Andrew has gone out of his way to ensure my girls feel engaged and excited about playing piano. I would highly recommend him as an instructor capable of handling all levels and abilities.
Anya, John H.
Great with my young kids, Andrew was easily able to hold their attention and we're looking forward to more lessons.

I hope to bring positive energy and insight to all my students’ lessons and help them grow. I am interested in working with students of all ages, and enjoy helping with everything — learning how to sing or improve vocal technique, learning how to play piano, cover favorite artists, perform, record, navigate ProTools of Logic or digital/analog synths.

Marie has helped me with refining my sound and getting back into singing with proper technique. Her feedback is constructive and she has an intuition for how to coach a vocalist even over Zoom. Fantastic!

"My name is Lily. I am 6 years old. I think Marie is an awesome piano teacher because she is kind, focused, patient, and nice. And also, I really, really, really like her singing voice and I like it when she sings along when I play. I feel happy with her as my teacher because after each lesson, I feel more focused. Thank you, Marie!!"

I didn´t know how to play the piano. However, after a few classes with Ms. Alice, I am playing songs. Her piano method for adults really works well. No boring and long piano lessons.

Alice is a great teacher! Learning music with her is a lot of fun. She teaches me piano and voice in the same class. It is awesome to learn two instruments at the same time!

"I had the opportunity to work with Kessa when we were both in undergrad and I was trying to decide whether or not to become a music major. I was feeling pretty discouraged with my current piano teacher at the school and talked with Kessa since we had a class together and I knew she was a piano major. I had a few lessons with her and she gave me so many helpful ideas about how to approach my pieces and improve my practice habits. She was very kind and didn’t make me feel bad at all, but still pushed me hard in those lessons because she believed in me. Even though I ended up deciding not to go into music after all, I still value those few lessons I had with her and recommend her to everyone at any level."

"I’ve been training with Efrem for a couple of years. We had in person sessions before the lock downs and switched to online since.
Efrem is very knowledgeable and extremely patient. He doesn’t guilt you when you haven’t practiced enough and patiently walks you through what you should know. That has made it very easy for me to not feel that I have to cancel a session for lack of practice. We keep the sessions and take baby steps. And his attitude has helped me keep it consistent.
He also has great tips and ideas on how to perform a piece."

"My son and daughter have been taking piano, songwriting and voice lessons with Fawn for several years. Fawn is an accomplished musician who gives lessons out of her warm, welcoming and fun lit recording studio. Fawn has a kind and casual approach to teaching, however it is also strict. Fawn expects immediate results, which is great because it pushes students to be their best. Fawn is patient and enthusiastic and has allowed my son to develop a beautiful talent on the piano that I believe wouldn't have happened in a more traditional, strict setting. It has really worked for him. When Fawn does a Talent Share (her version of a recital), it is always inspiring and beautiful to see. Fawn has a special talent of meeting each student where they are and lovingly encouraging them to embrace whatever music inspires them. It is awesome."

"I have been working with Fawn for 4 years and have passed 11 levels of music theory and note spelling and 8 levels of lesson books with her. I can play anything I want, including high-level classical pieces, pop songs, movie soundtrack pieces, ragtime and jazz (I don't like jazz very much). Even though Fawn is very fun and can be silly, she has just the right amount of strict to her. She is quite fun to be with and I have gotten very far on piano (and other instruments now) and will continue to excel with her as my teacher. If I could give her more stars, I would."
