Just started my four year old granddaughter taking piano lessons from Dr. Michael Guida. She has taken three lessons so far and we are so impressed with Dr. Michael's patience, knowledge, professionalism and kindness.Mar 22, 2019VerifiedDr. Michael Guida's Piano Studio's reply

I have recently started learning piano, I am very happy & impressed with Michael. He makes everything so easy to learn. He is truly amazing & his passion for music is infectious. I enjoy my lessons greatly & look forward to more!Jun 8, 2019VerifiedDr. Michael Guida's Piano Studio's reply
Shweta, thank you so much for your very kind review. I’m really happy that you’re enjoying your lessons. Teaching piano to students who are so eager to learn is such a pleasure!
Michael was the best piano teacher I have had. As an older student he helped create a plan that was interesting and doable. He is very patient and low key. His personality is low key and he really tries to make everything down to a scale or chord progression interesting and understandable. I enjoy my lessons greatly and look forward to more.Mar 26, 2019VerifiedDr. Michael Guida's Piano Studio's reply
Thank you so much Ron- it’s been wonderful working with you!
I can’t say enough good things about Michael. I was a little hesitant to contact Michael having no background in piano and music in general but he reassured me that it is never too late to learn and excel at anything. After few lessons with him I can already see so much improvement and my confidence is being gradually built. Michael is very friendly, patient, and most importantly passionate about what he does. I would definitely recommend him for anyone wanting to learn and love the piano.Apr 20, 2019VerifiedDr. Michael Guida's Piano Studio's reply
Thank you so much Ban- it’s wonderful working with you and watching how quickly you’re progressing!
I have taken piano for almost fifteen years now, and I loved being able to continue my piano education with Dr. Michael Guida at the University of Texas. He was able to help me expand my knowledge of theory, scales, and approach to playing the piano, all of which helped me improve as a pianist. During lessons, he came ready to answer any questions I had with my pieces and really work through any difficult spots until they had improved. He challenged me to improve as a pianist, learn new pieces, and continue taking lessons in the future. I highly recommend taking lessons from Dr. Guida, as he will put in the time and effort to help you succeed.Jan 11, 2019

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am a Doctor of Musical Arts, and I received my Degree from the University of Texas at Austin. I have studied piano with concert pianist Anton Nel, and studied the pedagogy of piano with professors Sophia Gilmson and Martha Hilley. There, I learned the proper and professional techniques of teaching piano at all levels.
