Introduction: *Currently offering half off the first lesson to new students!* —> Check out my photos and videos from past (both in-person and online) lessons! I build my lessons around each individual student, catering to what it is they need, and where I can help them build their skills the most. I do my best to avoid redundant, general lessons. I know that every person is different, and I want to ensure that they are learning as much as they can so they can become the best musician they can be. Seeing a student get excited about mastering a difficult piece can be the most rewarding feeling as a piano teacher. I love helping my students work towards their goals, and guiding them in playing a song they love is just one of the many benefits of this job.

Piano Lessons

Shannon has been so patient and kind to our daughter and has increased her enthusiasm for learning the piano. Never thought that the ability to have lessons virtually would be feasible but it has been such a nice edition in the age of COVID. So glad we discovered her on Thumbtack!

Piano Lessons

Shannon is a great teacher! My son always looks forward to his lessons and seems to be very interested in playing the piano now. He practices virtually and seems to be doing great, He has learned a lot already with just a few lessons. Her teaching methods seem fun and easy for kids to understand. She is very kind,patient professional,and has great prices as well :)

Piano Lessons

Shannon is really awesome! I’m a little older and I’ve always wanted to take piano lessons, but I didn’t know if I would truly be able to receive them well. Shannon does a great job teaching and really making sure you understand before going to the next section! I feel like I’ve learned so much in a short time, definitely would recommend her!

Piano Lessons

Hello! I’m Aylana. I’ve been taking piano lessons with Shannon for a few weeks now and I believe she is a great instructor. She’s very nice, professional, and patient. For example, in my last lesson I was having a difficult time understanding. I was very troubled and confused. Shannon understood my confusion and she encouraged me to keep going and to try again. It was very nice of her to say such nice things and that she had the patience to help and tell me what I’ll need to do to improve. I am a very quiet person when it comes to new people, and I’m quite sure she understood that. She made a very welcoming environment for me to learn in, and I’ve gotten more talkative and interactive since my first lesson. So in conclusion, Shannon is a great instructor and I would surely recommend her to anyone looking for piano lessons. I feel that I’ve learned a lot in the short amount of time working with Shannon and have enjoyed my time with her and will continue lessons.

Piano Lessons

Shannon is amazing!!! She worked sooooooo well with my 5 year old daughter— making piano lessons as fun as it could be for Jazzy! Shannon demonstrated genuine care within her work, along with great amount of patience. You could tell right away that she really enjoys and loves teaching kids music, or else she wouldn’t be as great as she is! Looking forward to continuously working with Shannon!

FAQs

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

    -30-minute lesson: $30* -45-minute lesson: $40* -60-minute lesson: $55* Books: usually a one-time cost of $9-18 depending on the student's age and level. I typically recommend starting with 30-minute lessons for beginners. If 30 minutes becomes to short of a time span to accomplish everything you/the student would like to get to, we can discuss increasing the lesson length.

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

    Before starting lessons, I need to know 3 simple things: -the student’s age -if the student has any musical experience (it’s completely fine if they don’t!), and if yes, do they already have a set of books they have been working through -if the student has access to a piano or keyboard to practice

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I took six years of private piano lessons, and was trained classically during these lessons. I have also taken multiple college courses in music theory and music performance. I have been teaching private lessons since 2007, starting as a part-time gig. In 2019 decided to teach full time because I love teaching so much more than I wanted to climb the corporate ladder! That year I worked part time at a music academy in Southern California, and was able to shadow some incredible teachers and enhance my teaching skills there. In 2020, I decided to start my own studio. I started with three students. That number quickly grew, and holds steady between 40-50 students that I teach on a weekly basis.
