***AS OF OCTOBER 2020, LESSONS ARE IN PERSON AGAIN***
My mission is to make sure that your child becomes a confident, capable, and creative piano player.
I do this by starting your kid's piano journey the RIGHT way.
Mark has found a way to be resilient during tough times. Right now, many people are stuck at home due to Covid19. Even so, we have access to good technology, and Mark is providing for real time piano lessons. We really appreciate the dedication to move forward and continue my son’s development of piano skills.
Mark is always on time, talented, patient and highly recommended! My daughter enjoys classes very much!
Mark is a great teacher, always on time. My daughter is always looking forward to piano lessons. He is great with kids and creates an environment that is friendly and fun for kids. My daughter has gained so much confidence in learning new things because of her piano lessons.
We are highly pleased with Mark Phillips as Joseph’s private piano instructor. Since beginning with Mark, we’ve noticed greater fluidity in Joseph’s playing. Joseph’s confidence has risen as well. He takes a piano class at his high school, and his first grade since meeting with Mark was a 99% on his piano performance project. Joseph loves piano, but needs development on his skill. Mark directs him in such a way that his love for the music comes out, without the errors he experienced previously. Mark’s lessons have resulted in the idea that Joseph is seriously considering piano as an area of study when he goes to college. Mark’s teaching method is great because he is knowledgeable, enthusiastic, well organized, and determined. We are thankful to have Mark teaching Joseph!
I get new students started off with a 15 - 20 minute trial lesson. In this lesson, the student will learn exactly how to read music and will leave having learned 4 new songs.
I started playing piano at 4 and studied with a few teachers in Carmel, IN. After graduating high school, I attended the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. I graduated with a Bachelor's in Music Performance in 2015.
