Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
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!

It had been over 50 years since I played the piano. After a few lessons from Michele I have confidence that you can teach an old lady new tricks (:

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!

Details: 26 - 44 years old • Yes, the student can read music • No formal training; some self-taught experience • What the teacher recommends • No, the student does not have either • 30 minutes • Remotely (phone or internet)

I am very grateful that I have the opportunity to study piano with Dr. Cohen! I learned playing the piano when I was a child and decided to pick it up earlier this year. Dr. Cohen assessed my level and recommends the music that suits my level very well. She helps identify my strength and my weakness, and helps me improve my playing technically and musically. I really like that she doesn't just point out the mistakes, but spends time in the lectures helping me understand the music and exploring the right sound. Although we have only met online for a few months, I feel that she really knows my personality through music and knows what type of music I enjoy playing. I wish I had started the lesson with Dr. Cohen earlier and highly recommend Dr. Cohen for anyone who is looking for guidance in playing the piano.

I couldn’t ask for a better experience working with Dr. Cohen. It’s been 15 years since taking a piano lessons and she has made it an easeful and exciting transition back in. I learn from her every week and am truly excited for my lessons! She is extremely responsive as well, when I’ve had questions. 10/10!
