I am a concert pianist with a passion for teaching. From a boarding arts secondary school to prestigious conservatories in both the US and Europe, I have honed my craft, and developed a love for sharing my passion with others.

I have taught students at the Yale School of Music and the Eastman School of Music, and have been a Piano Instructor at Rutgers University, Avenues: The World School (New York City), and Wetherby-Pembridge School NY.

Additionally, I have taught a private studio for a year in Brussels, Belgium and given masterclasses at universities and schools across the Americas. My goal as a teacher is to instill my own love for music in my students.

Michael is a great piano teacher! He gives me great advice on how to make my piano playing more musical, and has a genuine love for music that radiates in our every lesson. Also, he’s a very charming personality away from the piano. Highly recommend!
Connie
Michael is an engaging instructor with an ability to break down difficult concepts into understandable examples and explanations. I studied piano as a child and wanted to relearn as an adult, so while my foundation didn’t perfectly fit either a beginner or intermediate skill level, Michael readily adapted his pedagogy to it and helped me identify areas for improvement. I highly recommend him for students of any musical background or skill level.

Private Classical Piano Teacher

I have been teaching piano almost as long as I have been performing, coming up on 10 years. To date, I have taught lessons to over 100 different students ranging in age from 5 to 70, and ranging in skill from complete beginner to college piano performance major. I can teach students of any level and help them overcome any problem, whether that is a technical problem, interpretative problem, or having pain during playing.

Not every student is going to think I’m the best fit for them. I expect consistent practice, completion of assignments, and attention to detail in music. I have had many trial lessons that don’t pan out because the student or parent thinks my expectations are too high for them. Make no mistake; I expect a lot, but I also care deeply about music and have great understanding and sympathy for those who genuinely try. Whether your goal is to learn to read music, improve rhythm, learn to play the great classical repertoire, or simply have a good time learning the ...

About Kessa

I received my BM in piano performance from Brigham Young University, studying under Dr. Richard Anderson and Dr. Irene Peery-Fox. While there, I studied pedagogy from master teachers Dr. Irene Peery-Fox and Dr. Jared Pierce, who taught me both how to run a studio and how to manage individual lessons

Excellent. Nothing gets by her; very helpful.
Caleb
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.
Marissa
Kessa is a very professional and talented piano teacher. My son loves going to lessons and we love hearing him practice such pretty music. We're impressed with Kessa's ability to explain confusing concepts and to encourage my son when he is having a tough time. She's done so well with transitioning to Zoom lessons during the pandemic and we love being able to have lessons from home.

Private Classical Piano Teacher

I’m a pianist, composer and educator with over 17 years experience teaching piano, composition, production and ear training. I have worked with students of all ages, from complete beginner to conservatory level and professional artists.

My pedagogy is based on the premise that music is a language. As such, my teaching focuses on:
(1) helping students to hear, identify and understand musical elements in real time (from individual notes, to harmony and chord progressions, ear training and sight reading); and
(2) connect this understanding to becoming a proficient pianist, sight reader and improviser.

I cater lessons to the goals of the individual, curating a step by step process aimed at achieving their objectives. Lessons are driven by building solid foundations for long-term progress and success, while having fun. My principles are universally applicable across all styles, including Jazz, Classical, Pop, Funk, Blues and more, whether improvising or performing.

I graduated from the ...

Nick is a fantastic teacher! Since starting out, I really wanted to learn jazz improvisation, and improve my technique through playing classical pieces. I have learnt so much about composition and analysis as well, and I've started to write my own material as well. I feel super comfortable with Nick's style; he's a great communicator, very direct and down to earth, but always focus on ensuring there's progress. He's clearly very experienced, and has a great setup for online learning.

With 35 years of experience teaching all ages, I love seeing success in my students. I teach classical, jazz, pop, and Christian music. I am also a director of music at a church and I compose and arrange music as well. I continue to perform in local bands in addition to my church job, and with my extensive experience in education I am able to tailor lessons to each individual student based on their needs and goals. I make the lessons enjoyable, and I believe fully that everyone can learn to play the piano, which is a skill that you can use for a lifetime of fun!

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.

"Laurel taught my kids piano lessons for several years. When she moved away, she proved impossible to replace! She really cared about the kids' learning. For example, when my son seemed to connect better with the process and logic behind the music, she got him started composing his own! Both kids benefited greatly from Laurel's teaching and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a piano teacher."

"Fawn adapts her teaching to match the interests and motivations of the student. Having given up in my youth, I have no desire to go through the process again. I just wanted to play beautiful pieces. It's been daunting and slow and you get out of it what you put in, but thanks to Fawn's unerring skill, patience, support, compassion, expertise and sense of humor - I do believe it's happening and in a short amount of time. Great teacher!"
