Introduction: It’s wonderful that you want to explore learning piano! The piano is a beautiful instrument that can be difficult to master without the right teacher. I teach the very best techniques and develop an individual program tailored to each student, so you can learn to play beautiful music! Because of the Covid -19 situation, I’ve moved all piano lessons online, via zoom. I'm proficient in several languages, including English, Portuguese, Spanish and French. I’m Dr. Michele Cohen, and I grew up in Salvador, Brazil. My love of piano took me to the States, where I earned a Doctorate in Piano Performance from Indiana University and was mentored by some of the top pianists in the world. I have performed concerts at the prestigious Carnegie Hall and Steinway Hall in New York, the Brazilian Embassy in DC, and the Myra Hess Memorial Concert Series at the Chicago Cultural Center. I have also taught piano classes at Indiana University School of Music and most recently, I have developed a Musical Arts Program at the International Schools in Beijing, China. With over 20 years of experience, I teach students of all ages, from beginners to career pianists. My winning program takes the very best practices from pianists around the world, and each student will learn perfect technique developed from many years of experimenting! This allows you to play without tension, freely and beautifully at the piano. You will learn to focus on expression, crafting a sound that is uniquely your own. You will even learn the secret that makes reading music easy, using my unique interval-based method. Music Theory, History and Improvisation skills are always integrated in lessons in order to expose each student to the vast possibilities of Music as an expressive language. From the beginning, you will have access to the full-range of the piano. For parents, your children will develop a love and appreciation for music. With time, you will learn the art of improvisation, building creativity and fluency. Many of my students have gone on to win scholarships and professional competitions around the country. I’m happy to talk to you about your goals with piano lessons!

Dr. Michele is an excellent piano teacher. She is bright, kind, genuinely fun to work with, and she will challenge you to grow as a musician. If you are concerned about price against the value of online lessons— don’t be. I have been with Michele for the past 2 months, and although this was my main concern, the leveraging of multiple camera angles, recorded lessons, screen sharing, and quality audio have made learning from her expertise well worth it. I look forward to more lessons, funny moments, and growing in classical repertoire with Michele.

Piano Lessons

I began piano lessons in January 2021 with Michele. I have loved every moment! She responds promptly with professionalism! She is always punctual to lessons with a prepared plan. Being an older student, she has been patient, supportive and understanding as I've had to adjust my schedule and/or my practicing isn't up to snuff! I have learned so much and look forward to every lesson! I would strongly recommend her!

Piano Lessons

Dr. Cohen’s piano lessons have been excellent! I have some music background, but Dr. Cohen has helped me focus in on concepts and styles that are most interesting to me. Her extensive background as a pianist shows, as she is able to identify very subtle improvements I can make that can only come from years of practice and experience. Beyond teaching me the technical skills to be a good pianist, Dr. Cohen has been able to reach me a good deal of music theory as well, which I’ve greatly enjoyed. I would strongly recommend this instructor, regardless of your experience level!

Piano Lessons

Dr. Cohen has been wonderfully patient with me and helped me progress. My story with the piano is that I started lessons at age 3 years and quit at age 14 years. I am now almost 79 years old and have decided it's time to return to the instrument I love. Of course my fingers are stiff and I'm very slow but after 3 lessons i am definitely making progress. She is just outstanding and I feel as if she has given me back the gift of music!

Piano Lessons

I have very much enjoyed the lessons I have been taking with Dr. Cohen since the end of October. I am an older (over 60) piano student who took lessons back when I was a child and young teenager. Among other things, Michele has been working with me to improve my form, focus on the basics (scales and chords) and understand the nuances and musicality of the music. There's a lot to work on! She has been exposing me to different genres of music and making sure that I stay motivated. So far so good!
