I have been passionate about music teaching ever since I was a teenager growing up in Sri Lanka, where my mother was a music teacher as well. I have many decades of teaching experience in 4 countries. (Sri Lanka, India, Switzerland, USA)
I customize lessons according to the student's need, rather than use a "one-method-fits-all" approach.
I specialize in teaching the Trinity College of Music (London) syllabus in Piano, Piano Accompanying, and Music Theory. I am the Trinity representative for Chicago, and was formerly the Chicago representative for the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of M
My passion for music and performing sparked from childhood, collaborating with my musical family. Much of our time together was spent singing next to Grandma at the piano, picking up an instrument, and learning how it all works. I believe each student learns in a different, unique way, and am committed to discovering what practices and techniques work best for the individual. My goal at each lesson is have a collaborative experience with a positive and productive atmosphere.
A professional performer in the city of Chicago for over a decade, I began teaching 4 years ago after a collegue a
I love playing piano and I love teaching others to play piano. I am 68 years old and this has been my passion from a very early age. I give individual attention to my students to assure that I know and understand their goals and can help them reach them. I also want to know the music styles preferred and help my students to learn and grow in their area of preference.
I LOVE HELPING PEOPLE FIND AND BUILD THEIR UNIQUE VOICES! Truly, when you find your voice, you find yourself.
I struggled for YEARS to find my voice, both literally and creatively. I finally found a couple of teachers in New York, David Jones and Janet Steele, who helped me to find my actual voice. While they are focused mainly on opera, I take the concepts of the Swedish-Italian school and apply them to pop, musical theatre, and jazz. The result is that each of my students sounds entirely unique because they are using their own voices (rather than imitating a desirable voice

I was a classroom teacher in 1st-4th grades for 27 years and I have taught private piano lessons for over 20 years. I am now retired from classroom teaching and I own my own businesses doing private tutoring and teaching piano. I currently have 45 students and work out of 2 studios/offices. One is located in Old Town and the other is on the northwest side of Chicago just west of Lincoln Square. I welcome students of all ages and levels of ability.
With piano teaching it takes a dedicated, organized passionate teacher to give the student the true full musical experience possible. Easily students are shied away from a potential life changing skill and activity, due to a lack of passion from the teacher.
I enjoy instilling a self motivated desire to create music, spreading my continuously growing passion for classical piano music, and spreading knowledge from the basics of piano, musical building blocks, and the understanding of theory, ear training, sight singing all the way through self composition, to give the students the keys to suc

She just gave her own composition co
Hello. My name is Rudolph Gartner, and I have played the piano for over 40 years, on and off, since I was 9 years old. I didn't become very diligent in my piano practicing until I was in my late 30s and early 40s, although I always loved piano and music in general. I guess it takes some of us longer to settle down and become serious about the things we love and care for.
I have now taught private piano lessons for 12 years in the Chicago area, again on and off, but definitely on for the last 4 years. I have taught piano lessons to children as young as 4 years old and to adult students who ar
Khinuu is lifetimes of musical love and experience. The present moment brings all forces together to create a cosmiagical explosion on the world vibe groove. Future generations will ask "How did they make their music sound so GOOD!?"
I'm a college graduate that has been teaching music since 2010 graduation. I also have many connections in many industries that may further someone's elses career; as well as mine.
I teach any style of music to all ages. My goal is to teach students to play pieces they really want to play - pieces that excite them.
I am 24 years old and I have been teaching piano for 9 years both privately and in classroom settings. I am calm, patient, and attentive.
Some of my favorite composers are Chopin, Debussy, Rachmaninov, and Gerswhin. Some of my favorite bands are Radiohead and Fleet Foxes. I encourage all my students to share their favorite music with me.
The goal of my studio is to teach the students how to enjoy obtaining the skill of being able to create beautiful melodies from playing the piano in a way that is most rewarding and effective for them. I will coach and guide you to the feelings of accomplishment and joy that come with learning how to play beautiful music on the piano.
My studio is located in the heart of Chicago's Loop. I have been teaching classical piano music as well as improvisations for cocktail lounge style piano music. I'm looking forward to teaching any age students, beginner to advance levels.

We offer private lessons in those instruments from the best teachers around in guitar, violin, piano, voice, and ukulele. These teachers have been hand selected by us for not only their amazing musicianship, but also their knowledge of teaching young children. Let's be honest, there are MANY good music teachers out there who can teach beginners, but it takes a special touch to deal with the youngest, budding musicians who may need help focusing on the lesson while also getting silly and having fun with it! On top of that, our teachers have all kinds of advanced degrees and perform in groups an

Yuen Yee has been teaching Clarinet, Saxophone and Piano for more than 7 years to hundreds of students from age 5 to adult in both private and classroom settings. Her students had won several music competitions and auditions to youth bands. She believe every child and adult can play and enjoy music. Her goal is to bring music into your life and help her students to build interest and professionalism in music performing.
Each student enters piano lessons with different interests, needs and goals. A four year old starting lessons for the first time will have very different needs than a 67 year old revisiting piano after several years hiatus. We make it a priority to get to know you on a personal level and to become familiar with your interests, strengths, challenges and goals. We do not treat every student the same in terms of what and how we teach. Each student is an individual and we work with you to create a plan that fits your needs and musical preferences. At the first lesson your teacher will a
I have been teaching for over 45 years, beginning in Chicago in the 1960s in Hyde Park and then moving to Columbus, Ohio where I have taught individual and class piano lessons. I welcome students from very young beginners to retired adults who wish to further their musical skills.
I believe that everyone can learn and enjoy music. I feel for many people it is a release from the stresses of daily life and a chance to develop skills that allow them to express their creative side. Having been very fortunate to have some of the best teachers in London, England where I did my undergraduate work,

"The happiest people are those who think the most interesting thoughts. Those who decide to use leisure as a means of mental development, who love good music, good books, good pictures, good company, good conversation, are the happiest people in the world. And they are not only happy in themselves, they are the cause of happiness in others." - William Lyon Phelps
