About Bonnie Anderson

hired 2 times on Thumbtack

I am a 2005 graduate of Jacksonville State University in Jacksonville, AL. There I studied Music Education with a Concentration in Piano. I have been officially teaching piano in Orlando Florida since 2008. Prior to teaching I acted as my church's choir director and assisted in directing the music for their musical productions.

In addition to teaching, I also enjoy acting as a piano accompanist. I continue and enjoy being available for Solo & Ensemble competitions each year as well as accompanying middle/high school choirs for concerts or rehearsals.

Piano lessons will include basic to advance skills, music theory (which is the foundation to all music), technique, and ear training. As a member of my studio, you will also be able to participate in recitals throughout the year. It is a great way to show off your skill and enjoy music and performances from your peers.

    Bonnie Anderson has provided accompanist services for both of my children during Solo and Ensemble. She is very professional,talented and easy to work with. Bonnie not only accompanies but, inspires her student to love and understand the piece of music beyond the grade. Bonnie has the level of expertise needed for high level pieces many others do not.

    I started my lessons yesterday with Bonnie. She is very good. I think she is going to be a really great teacher and her pricing is fair and reasonable.

    I've decided to hire Bonnie on a weekly basis and I would definitely recommend her service to my family and friends.

    Our daughter started taking lessons from Ms. Anderson in January of 2011. I was immediately impressed how approachable Ms. Anderson is. She loves to teach and my daughter felt comfortable from the very beginning. I also liked how she interjects little bit of music history lessons

    We would highly recommend this teacher - Ms. Anderson is a really nice person and a great piano teacher!

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. The most common job I provide is teaching piano for my clients. I teach both children and adults. My youngest student is early elementary and my oldest student is in retirement.

Additionally, I also act as a piano accompanist for the Solo & Ensemble competitions that are held in the month of February

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Ask your teacher of their qualifications and experience. Also ask the teacher about the cancelation policies, curriculum, and requirements. Some will have additional fees for recitals, books, etc.

Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?

A. It is important to understand that taking piano lessons requires dedication. You must put in the time to practice and, if the student is a child, constant encouragement is essential. Just like a child needs nudging to get his/her homework done, chores, etc, the same will have to be done on occasion to practice the piano. It takes the same amounts of commitment, if not more, from the parent.

Finally, make sure your child has something to practice on. This may go without saying but I have had several clients who sign their child up without a keyboard or something to practice on. You do not have to buy a piano (although it is preferred) but you should at least have a keyboard that is touch sensitive.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. What I enjoy most is the fact piano lessons are a more enjoyable subject for most students vs. other subjects that are forced upon them in school. They come with a positive mind set and it constantly challenges me to come up with creative ways to teach or explain certain concepts. Most of all, I have a closer relationship with my students than most teacher. I believe I am a mentor to most of them and even a counselor at times, to others. The ability to change ones life is an amazing thing!

Q. Do you do any sort of continuing education to stay up on the latest developments in your field?

A. I continue to practice the art and play regularly. When I host recitals, I will learn, memorize, and perform a piece along with my students. It is a great example of what they can aspire to but it also sharpens my skills as well. I also believe that other activities can relate or be applied to the piano so I participate in community choirs but also offer my services as an accompanist for solo and ensemble competitions.

Q. What are you currently working on improving?

A. I am currently working on providing more opportunities to perform for my students, such as recitals, throughout the year.
