Piano Lessons

Stella is an amazing piano teacher! I am a retired adult who started learning the piano a couple of years ago. I’ve progressed more in 6 months with Stella than in the previous 2 years. Until my lessons with Stella, I never really understood how to achieve the dynamics and color of a music piece. But, Stella not only points these out, she demonstrates and gives you practice drills to help you achieve the nuances that make the piece special. It makes your playing even at my stage (beginner/intermediate beginner) so satisfying. Stella sensed that I like theory, so she combines theory and technique with musicality in each lesson so that I really feel like I grow with each lesson.

Stella was a great piano teacher. She was very patient and really tailored the lesson to my needs and interest. Great learning environment as well, I recommend her to both adults and children looking to take lessons.

Stella is a great piano teacher. She is very friendly but also very professional in her teaching. She makes her lessons interesting especially to young students. My daughter is always looking forward to her piano lessons with Stella.

Piano Lessons

It's not easy to find the right piano teacher. Some teachers don't have enough skills to teach, some with the skills but don't know how to teach. Stella put together in the right combination. I just started having my piano lessons with Stella and it has been a positive experience. Stella is very attentive and able to point out some problem areas with suggestions. She is also very flexible on schedule, which is a must for adult learners. I plan to continue having lessons with her and looking forward to it. :)

Piano Lessons (for adults)

Taking lessons with Stella has been such a great experience!! I have been playing piano my whole life and have seen more improvement since starting with her than at any other time. She structures her lessons very thoughtfully and I can tell that she genuinely cares about my playing/improvement.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My hourly rate is $60 with weekly one-hour lessons, though some students (especially younger children) have 45 minute lessons in order to accommodate shorter attention spans. Students can choose to pay with cash or check for the coming month in advance. Cancellation policy: Cancellations more than 48 hours in advance will be rescheduled as soon as possible within the same month. Cancellations made less than 48 hours before the scheduled lesson (except for emergency reasons) will incur a cancellation fee and will be rescheduled as well.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Depending on my student's background, I use the beginning of the lesson to get a sense of how advanced my student is in terms of musical education. If he/she has had prior piano instruction, I ask my student to perform a few pieces in order for me to see the current skill level, such as hand positioning, wrist flexibility, form, finger precision and strength, etc.
