Online Piano Teacher

Hello!

I am a professional musician and a pre-candidate of the Doctoral of Musical Arts in Piano Performance and Pedagogy from the University of Michigan. I have taught piano for over 10 years, with experience ranging from instructing college music courses to working privately with students of different ages, levels, learning disabilities, and backgrounds.

I provide students with practice strategies and problem-solving skills during the lesson, so they can experience progress and enjoyment from mastering challenges. I want students to leave the lesson thinking: "I can do it!" I am always communicating and setting individual goals and expectations. I promote proper technique to support healthy practice and greater expressive ability. All the while, I strive to develop a student's critical listening skills and self-awareness. I aim to introduce students to a variety of the best piano literature so they can discover the excitement, beauty and enjoyment of playing music. My ultimate ...

I've taken piano before, and all I can say it - Hillary was the most knowledgeable teacher I've ever had. She implements technique, theory, artistry, and different genres in her lesson plans. As a musician, I've grown holistically in not just my ability to read music, but knowledge in other areas of music as well.
Kenyon
Hillary has ran such a brilliant class for me, and I cannot wait to apply all that I have learned from her as I continue with piano in my music degree. She knows very well how to structure her class, and provide feedback in an articulated, and kind way. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, Hillary!
Sylvia
My daughter was struggling with rhythmic concepts for the longest time and could not do simple things like keeping time, clapping to a beat, or follow along in her class. Hillary patiently and creatively worked to help her focus and develop her musical senses. Her sense of rhythm is now superb. Hillary is also genuinely so kind and committed. Thanks Hillary for all your help

So I usually don’t leave reviews. But God has used Kevin to help improve my skills in keyboard playing. In less than 3 months with and average of an hour lesson a week. I went from only feeling comfortable in playing in 2 scales to playing in 5 of the 7 scales. Also I didn’t realize how bad my rhythm was but once Kevin began working with me I made major improvements. I’ve also learned to play fundamental chord progressions on the major scale. Kevin listens to what you want to accomplish and works alongside you to accomplish this. He is also kind and very well skilled. Needless to say God has used Kevin to help me and will continue to use him to help me. So what are you waiting for? Please book worth every penny
Cordelia B.
I have been taking singing lessons from Kevin for 5 weeks. He appears to possess a legitimate love for music as well as the understanding that I am looking for someone who can teach me the fundamental elements of music. I don’t just want someone to tell me how to rearrange a song. I am looking for someone who will offer me the “how to” from the bottom up. I suspect I am one of his more difficult students. I am older, never done anything musical but have always wanted to sing without frightening people off. He is patient, an excellent communicator and seems to understand my quest. I always enjoy my hour with him and walk away wishing I could afford more lessons. I highly recommend you give him a shot.

Keith
I’ve been taking lessons from Kevin for about 2 months. Before that I’d been kind of aimlessly playing around with guitar. I was playing by myself for about 20 years and basically had no timing and rhythm. I’m not a funk master yet but Kevin has given me tools that have greatly improved my timing and for the first time actually believing that I’m going to do this. Thanks

Piano lessons are an excellent way to engage all parts of your brain while having fun.

My lessons include: note reading, technique, music theory, ear training, and musicianship.

Although I can teach a variety of genres, my specialty is in classical music.

Yekaterina is fantastic! She is very talented and makes learning piano fun and enjoyable. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to become a great piano player!
Leah English
She's always very clear with instructions and takes time to explain things to you when you need help. She is also very patient when you need help understanding grammar and learning to pronounce things correctly.
Sabrina
Yekaterina can hear and point out a wrong note in a chord without even seeing what I am playing. Her hearing ability is very impressive. Apart from that she is very structured, and and gives very clear instructions on what needs to be done in every peice. She types it all in a chat after every lesson, so one knows exactly what to do to from lesson to lesson, and keep track on what has been hapenning and the progress.

"Highly recommend! Has been my son(s) teacher for about six years.

Terri is extremely professional and works well with children. She enjoys teaching and laughs with the children. She makes learning the piano fun, and will allow a child to pass and play similar songs at that level so the material is not monotonous and boring for the child. It also gives the child confidence when they do not have to repeat the same piece, but can learn the material from different books and pieces rather than repeating one song over and over. Terri is not a time watcher at all, but cares more about the child getting the lesson and understanding it well. I am so very glad I found her to teach both my sons. Highly recommend!"
