Top Rated Classical Piano Instructors Around Ashburn, VA
My little girl just started playing piano with Miss Debbie. She loves her piano lesson !
After a great stint of piano and violin lessons, we just began with Johnny Walker, Aida's strings teacher, to start my son on cello. We are so impressed with him - he knows HOW to teach, asking questions, guiding my son to think and understand rather than a mere demonstrate-and-repeat style. My son immediately took to him and can hardly wait between lessons for the next. Thank you!
My 6 year old son took the piano lessons with Lisa for over a year and I am amazed at his tremendous improvement in such a short time span. She is very patient and encouraging and my son really enjoys her class. Great experience with Lisa all the way around. Highly recommended!
I have used Alvin Smithson's services for over five years as a piano tuner, teacher and performer. I am always impressed with his skills, artistry and professionalism. Alvin first came to tune my 100-years old Steinway after it had been neglected for a number of years. He first examined the instrument, diagnosed what needed to be done and then proceeded with his expert tuning. Immediately after he was done and started playing, I was amazed at how good the piano sounded. Alvin explained that with a piano that hasn't been tuned or played in so many years, it will take some time to achieve its best form and sound for which it was built. A short time after, my wife started taking piano lessons from Alvin and as she started gaining proficiency in playing under his guidance, the piano itself gained a rich pleasing sound. Alvin paid close attention and adjusted notes or did a full tuning whenever needed. He also took the time to clean the strings and do minor technical adjustments. When a string needed to be replaced, Alvin recommended a technician from a highly reputable company. Overall, we owe it to his expertise to have the wonderful old piano do what it was built for by the Steinway masters. I should also mention that I heard some great musicians at venues where Alvin is the regular piano tuner. People who visit our house and hear our piano, or play it themselves, always compliment its sound. But the best comes when Alvin himself sits at the keyboard, whether at our house, at a social function or performing in the theater, it's such a joy to hear him play some great classical pieces as well as his own wonderful compositions. He is truly a very talented, sensitive and highly knowledgeable artist. And such a pleasant person, too. My wife and I feel fortunate to have Alvin give us the best piano sound to enjoy live music in our home. I would recommend him to anyone as piano tuner, teacher and overall musician.
I am so happy I met Susanna and Jerrod! They're both phenominal teachers. They taught all three of my children to sing and play the piano through private instruction and group classes. They have found the instruction fun yet challenging and have really learned a lot. Thanks so much!
Laurie is very thougtful and kind. She has been taught piano to my 10-year-old daughter since this June. Laurie is always calm and helpful. We love our piano lesson. These days, my daughter plays piano pretty well and I’m happy I can enjoy beautiful piano!
Don was fantastic. I'm so excited to continue my violin and piano lessons! I definitely recommend him...he obviously has a lot of knowledge to offer his clients.
Yukiko is a very caring and thorough teacher. My older daughter has been taking lessons for the past two years and enjoying improving her piano and music skills very much.
Claudette is an excellent piano teacher and has a very structured and professional program for her students. My daughter has made amazing progress in a very short time and always looks forward to her lesson. Also, space that is set aside for lessons and for a waiting room for parents in her home are very nice and comfortable. All the way around, I would highly recommend her as a piano instructor!
Dr. Whited has been instructing my teenage son for about 90 days. He is a classical musician who has several years of musical experience on the string bass. He is an accomplished high school string bass player who participates in several local symphonic orchestras. He wanted to take piano lessons over the summer break to obtain a proficiency on the piano that he could use as he approaches college, and potentially a career in music. As a young adult with a lot of technical knowledge of classical music, the challenge was to create an educational environment that was interesting enough to keep him fully engaged, while providing instruction on the beginner-level basics that he needs on the piano. Dr. Whited has done an outstanding job of providing this education in an interesting and challenging manner. We are still taking lessons (at the request of my son who does not want to quit now that school is starting) and hopefully my son will accomplish more than just basic piano proficiency as he moves forward with his instruction over the next year or so. Whatever the outcome is, we feel like Dr. Whited has the maturity, professionalism, flexibility and experience to provide him with the individual approach that he needs. We highly recommend her to all prospective students of all ages as an outstanding teacher.
I began taking piano lessons with Ms. Marcinko in March 2011, a month before my 15th birthday. The prospect of learning how to play an instrument for the first time as a young adult can feel a bit intimidating, but fortunately for me Ms. Marcinko was able to help make the experience pain-free! To start off, Ms. Marcinko recommended two beginner books which helped me learn how to sight read, as well as become more comfortable with the instrument. With Ms. Marcinko’s help, I was then able to quickly move onto playing pieces by Chopin, Beethoven, Bach and Granados, just to name a few! As a student of Ms. Marcinko's, I have had the privilege of being able to participate with piano auditions through the National Guild of Piano Teachers, as well as play at the annual recitals held for family and friends. If you are looking for a music teacher who really enjoys getting to know their students, while also helping them to stretch themselves musically, then look no further! I would recommend Ms. Marcinko in a heartbeat.
Marc is such a delight to work with. He is an excellent piano teacher, patient with the kids, teaches them not only how to play but the music theory and historical context. He is super organized and helpful when it comes to scheduling too. So glad we found Marc!
My 9 year old son has only been taking lessons for two months, so this is a very limited experience, but we plan to stick around! Magdalina is very kind and patient with him, explaining the new lesson without rushing, commending him on homework well done, and encouraging his interest. He loves his piano lessons and looks forward to them. Magdalina's schedule works very well for me, as I was able to pick a convenient time. She was very flexible when I asked to reschedule a couple of times. Also, the lesson environment is very pleasant - it's clean and spacious.
I help pianists develop their unique ability to play piano with more freedom, confidence, and communicative power. My studio is located in the heart of Washington DC (conveniently located between Capitol Hill and H St. NE). If you also live in Washington DC, I can travel to you when schedule permits!
Ms. Rudenko is by far one of the finest piano instructors in Northern Virginia. Not only is she a brilliant and accomplished pianist, but she is also a kind and compassionate teacher. In our lessons she always produced a perfect balance of hard work and fun. She created a nurturing and motivating environment in each of my lessons. Ms. Rudenko encouraged me to be a more thoughtful and inquisitive musician and it has forever molded my career as a teacher and performer. Prior to studying with Ms. Rudenko I studied piano for over seven years and I feel that I made more progress while working with her in just two years. If you study with Ms. Rudenko you will receive conservatory-level training in a positive, fun and productive setting. She is warm, welcoming and she produces results. Her qualifications and accomplishments combined with her joyous spirit, energy and patience make her an exquisite teacher.
Sadie was absolutely wonderful as the pianist at our cocktail fundraiser party. She was not only professional, arriving 15 minutes before her time to start, but also set the tone for an elegant, classic night, achieving the desired ambiance we had hoped for. She is beautifully versed in her musical repertoire. She has a very nice demeanor and is wonderful with children as well. She has been teaching piano to our daughters for several months. She has a gentle yet enthusiastic way of relating to youngsters. We think Sadie is great and has been a blessing to our family!
Our 16 year old daughter is currently a student of Mrs. Bennett. Mrs. Bennett is very professional and polished. Our daughter has taken private lessons with Mrs. Bennett since the third grade. Our daughter can read music and play the piano beautifully without music in front of her. In today’s busy world in Loudoun County, our daughter finds playing the piano relaxing. She loves Mrs. Bennett and she is able to provide direction and instruction to our daughter in a professional pleasing way. We would highly reccomend Mrs. Bennett for anyone interested in taking piano lessons. Mrs. Bennett also works with us when we have to be out of town. We appreciate Mrs. Bennett’s knowledge, ability, and professionalism. Doug & Liz Gant, Ashburn, VA
Great piano teacher! Our kids love him.
Gosh, you simply can't do better. Where else are you going to find a classically trained bluegrass expert with a Masters degree, giving affordable private lessons? Chris is just amazing.
We met for first time today. Jennifer has been very good with communicating with us. Jennifer is very kind and my son really enjoyed his first session. Looking forward to more piano lessons....
I have been taking piano lessons with Toni Serini for about four years, and I have thoroughly enjoyed it! I started with no instrumental experience at all, at age 61. That background made it especially important that Toni is knowledgeable, very patient, and extremely affirming. As a professional teacher myself, I can attest to the importance of each of those characteristics for student motivation and enjoyment. Toni clearly loves piano, and loves teaching the enjoyment of playing, to both adults and children. I have seen both groups thrive with her lessons. I’m so happy that a chance enrollment in a community college course led me to her!
