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! I offer piano lessons online and in person. I'm also 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 beginner 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 expressive dynamics, emotional connection, and artistic interpretation, 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. Cohen is amazing. She is very patient and fantastic at teaching. When I started I did not know anything about piano, I did not even know how to read musical notes. But in the first month (4 sessions) of learning, I was able to play songs, read notes and feel confident that I can reach my dream of being able to play my favorite songs with Piano.

Dr. Cohen has been an amazing teacher. During my first lesson she was instantly able to identify areas for me to improve upon while also helping me understand what I was doing well. She provides very specific, thorough instruction that is catered to the student, and she is able to convey more nuanced topics and concepts in a clear and concise manner. I've had two other piano teachers in the past, who were both great, but while working with Dr. Cohen, I've noticed not only an increase in the quality of my playing, but also a greater amount of motivation to play and make progress. It's been a joy working with her.

Dr. Cohen is an amazing piano instructor! I played for a few years as a child, and decided to pick it back up again as an adult. I was very nervous before my first lesson, but Dr. Cohen makes you feel at ease. She's so patient, and explains difficult/challenging concepts in an easy-to-understand manner. Her passion for music and teaching comes out in every lesson!
