Tiffani M. says, "As an adult, I knew it would be more challenging to learn piano. Growing up, I was involved in community theater, school musicals, and choir. I always regretted quitting piano at an early age because it would have been a strong base for my love of the performing arts. For Christmas 2019, I asked for a piano (mind you I am 28 years at the time) and made it my goal to learn to play piano again. Cue February 2020, I contacted Family Learning Center for Music (in Twinsburg, Ohio) inquiring about piano lessons for adults. I got paired with Mark Kmit as my instructor. From the moment I met Mark, he was so patient and knowledgeable about the instrument. He takes the time to make sure you are perfecting and learning from your craft. I had a few weekly in-person lessons, and then Covid hit a month later. Mark told me that we could continue lessons, but it would have to be virtually. We tried Zoom, but it was not the best option. We discovered Facetime worked well. Maybe a little lag or echo, but it worked for us. Our virtual lessons continued into the summer months, but I was about to move across the country to Seattle, Washington. I told Mark the news of my move thinking that I would have a few final lessons with him then have to start over with finding a piano instructor. That’s when Mark told me, “How would you like to continue lessons virtually? I can make it work. I have a few other students who live out of state too.” I said, “Let’s try it out and see if we can do this.” 3 years later, we are still doing lessons virtually over Facetime! I am on Level 3 of my piano books. I cannot stress enough how amazing Mark is! He is an excellent piano teacher. My lessons are 30 minutes every week. Mark has been so understanding and flexible around my work schedule and other events that come up. If I get frustrated, he makes the lesson positive. He has a calming presence and really makes sure you are grasping the concept and not just “flying through” the books. There have been times where I have been on a piece for weeks before I finally start to “get it.” It is also helpful to have someone who is holding you accountable to practice your skills. I am grateful to have found a great piano teacher." Read more

I am a highly experienced professional, Conservatory trained piano teacher with an active international performing career and am interested in accepting serious students to my private studio. I have been fortunate to have had some of the greatest artist-teachers and mentors in the world, and know what a difference it makes to have such role-models and mentors. I teach college-level as well as Preparatory-level students, and love passing on the gift and joy of music in the same way it was passed on to me. If you would like to inquire about lessons, and set up a time to audition for me, please contact me. I will look forward to meeting you and ...

  • Sight-reading
  • Improvisation
  • How to improve playing or technique

At what age should you start piano lessons?

The best age to start piano lessons is 5 to 9 years, though learning how to play the piano doesn't have an age limit. Playing the piano strengthens fine motor skills, increases flexibility, and improves your memory no matter how old you are.

Are piano lessons worth it?

Piano lessons are worth the money and effort invested over time. Playing an instrument can be beneficial for mental health, and cognitive strength. For smaller budgets, book just a few lessons to get the basics down and continue on your own.

How long are piano lessons?
