I teach online or in-person piano lessons from my home studio on my beautiful Steinway baby grand piano.

A typical lesson with me will look something like this:

-The student plays what they have practiced, and we work on any difficult areas and techniques for playing better.

-I introduce new lesson material, asking questions to make sure my student understands.

-We work on music theory, sight reading, good posture, and helpful practice techniques.

-I expect my students to practice every day, just as I do. It is the only way to become proficient.

- - - - - - - - - -

For online lessons, you may use the online platform provided by TakeLessons, or we can use Zoom. Most of my students are using Zoom.

You will need to order lesson books before your first lesson. After you sign up, we will discuss which books to order. I usually use Alfred's Basic Piano Library lesson and theory books as a starting point for lessons.

You will also need to set up your computer, tablet, ...

Melody has been a gift. Under her encouragement, patience and knowledge, my 8 year old has flourished and has a new found appreciation for music. 5 stars isn't enough.
Arzo
Melody is an awesome piano instructor. I am an adult beginner and I have been taking online piano lessons with her for almost a year now. She is always patient and kind and she has helped me learn so much. It is also convenient that the lessons can be held online. I look forward to many more lessons with Melody and would definitely recommend her!

Get ready for a truly rich and rewarding experience. Maria studied at the Moscow Conservatory with Viktor Merzhanov. She is a 4th-generation pupil of Franz Liszt and 6th-generation of Beethoven. She was one of the fortunate few (Garrick Ohlsson among them) to study with Roberto Eyzaguirre, who was a student and friend of Claudio Arrau, one of the 20th-century's greatest pianists. Arrau studied with Martin Krause, who was one of Franz Liszt's final pupils. Liszt was taught by Carl Czerny. And Beethoven was Czerny's teacher. Through this great lineage, learn an incredible technique that will enable you to play the music of your dreams!

I am gaining a lot from my lessons with Maria. She is helping me to play more musically, to really listen and feel the music. She is also helping me to learn technically how to achieve the musical expression I desire.
Evan
I have enjoyed my lessons from Maria immensely. After just a few lessons I have noticed significant improvements in my overall technique and comfort while playing. Her feedback during lessons has been amazing, not just shallow compliments but solid criticism that most teachers would avoid.
Irwin ..
Maria is the best all-around music teacher I've ever head. She combines deep musicality, technical precision, rigor, and warmth. In just a handful of lessons, she's helped me find a level of ease and expression that I've never experienced with any other teacher.

Quirky, artsy, non-conformist music teacher for all ages!

I have been playing for 25 years and teaching for the past 6 years. I have an out-of the-box, unique teaching style that combines traditional, Suzuki, and proprietary (my own) teaching methods, which I use in varying combinations to suit each individual student's needs.
I'm experienced teaching a wide variety of musical styles (anything except rap and country).
I insist on classical foundations but am always open to new music, often using students' selections to teach them musical skills.
I have experience teaching students with minor learning disabilities, as well as ADD/ADHD and Asperger's, both of which I have myself.
This makes me a better, more flexible teacher, and I am open to working with you and/or your child, even as far as incorporating music lessons into homeschool curriculum.
I do take teaching music seriously, and I do require parental involvement on a regular basis, as I consider this crucial to learning

About Susan Skye

I started singing when I heard the musical "Cats" at age 8. I decided I wanted to sing like those people, and that's exactly what I did: I sang my little heart out until I had a great voice. At age 11, I was asked to play the bassoon in the school band, which also required piano lessons. This w

Private Piano Teacher

I have been playing for more than 10 years, and I am now ready to help others master the piano as well. I welcome all beginners - children, teens, and adults - and I always customize lessons to meet each student's needs. All students need for my piano lessons are: piano lesson books (per my recommendation), their pianos or keyboards, and a smartphone, tablet or computer. I like to keep my setup simple so we can focus on the music!

When I entered the 4th grade, I started taking piano lessons. Music theory was a helpful guide in my journey to grow my technique and my understanding of the marvelous instrument that is the piano. Because I had a digital keyboard for at-home practice, I not only learned how to play a non-digital piano but also a modern instrument that uses chords to control the harmony. I can read notes, recognize rhythm, tempo, and key on sight, and I am knowledgeable about transposition and music notation for the piano.

About Natalie

I don't just teach them how to count, read, and write: I show them how to build on their skills and reach their true potential. I know from my own experience how hard it is t

Natalie totally exceed my expectations. She is very knowledge and her class was on point, easy to follow, enjoyable and productive. She gave me amazing writing tips and come up with wonderful suggestions. I adore that she was very friendly and responsive too!
I would definitely recommend her services to anyone looking to improve her writing skills, copywriting or looking for a great teacher.
David
Natalie is knowledgeable, energetic, and enthusiastic. She identified my son´s opportunity areas and developed a plan to tackle those areas using tools like BitPaper, Prodigy Game, Quizlet, and Khan Academy. She went from refreshing support all the way to guidance teaching complex concepts building up in the process my son´s confidence and sense of goal achievement. In the beginning, we had another tutor, but rapidly, we noticed Natalie's difference in her thorough approach not only in Math but also in vocabulary, analogies, and QC´s; based on that, we decided to give Natalie the other sessions we had planned with the said tutor. All in all, she's the best tutor you can find!

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.

"My daughters love Priscilla. They definitely look forward to their lessons each week. Priscilla tailors the lessons to where each of them is and what they are interested in but also challenges them to try and learn new things. She has them composing their own music including learning how to write notes on a staff. She also invites them to find music that they would like to play rather than "just" relying on the book. Priscilla has an infectious positive energy which we all love to be around."
