Matoush Melodies Piano Instruction
ONLINE & IN-PERSON: Professional teacher (Berklee educated) with a BA in classical piano performance and over 20 years performing and teaching offering customized, enjoyable lessons. I maintain standards of excellence with tailored technical exercises, theory, and sight-reading practice customized to each unique individual. Detailed curriculum provided as well as weekly practice instructions. My students have 2 recitals a year at a gorgeous recital hall with a Steinway grand.
I customize lessons to fit each individual and also ensure they enjoy learning with a variety of teaching approaches. If your child or you study with me, you will see clear and rapid progress, yet you or your child will really enjoy the journey.
My main goal is to make sure my students learn to love music as I do and to get them excited about music. I have over 12 (20 years experience teaching) years of experience teaching piano privately, performing, and composing and work with a musical group performing and composing my original music, mash-ups of popular and classical music, and covers.
*SEE YouTube LINK BELOW for Student Performance Videos..I absolutely love teaching piano and watching my students blossom into accomplished pianists. I use a variety of innovative teaching approaches, games, and apps and also teach music literature and history. I mix classical repertoire with popular pieces.
All levels accepted; I love to work with advanced and intermediate students and help them with ABRSM exams, but also enjoy working with beginners.
