Piano Lessons

Toni is a wonderful and supportive teacher, who has been a perfect fit even for a total beginner like me. I was always nervous about finally starting to take lessons, but Toni is friendly, easy to work with, and a natural teacher. I look forward to continuing with her and have been happily surprised by how quickly I have been able to learn the basics.

My 5 year old son has been taking piano lessons with Ms. Serini for six weeks. Ms. Serini is a great teacher with great patience, and she knows how to teach little kid.

Toni is an excellent music instructor and is very patient. Even though you may think that you are terrible, Toni will always find something positive to share. I have never taken piano lessons before and I was 100% satisfied with Toni.

Piano Lessons (for adults)

I was quite impressed after the introductory lesson. I'm looking forward to my next one. The information provided on Thumbtack and her blog was thorough and accurate. For now.....practice.

Toni was very quick to respond to my request. She was very flexible working with me to provide her lessons as a gift for my husband. He just had his 1st lesson tonight, but so far he is very happy.

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

    It's not complicated. I have 2 levels of pricing. For school age students, I charge a monthly tuition for 9 months, September through May. Holidays are already worked into the schedule, so the monthly payments are always the same. Summer lessons are pre-arranged, the tuition is by the hour, and collected up front. Adults have hectic schedules, so I charge an hourly rate. I ask my adult students to commit weekly or every other week, and to pay for 2 to 4 weeks in advance. If they know they will be out of town, we arrange around their schedule.

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

    I typically sit away from the piano for a bit, "interviewing", if you will, the student (and the parent). We then move to the piano. I can generally get beginners to play Twinkle, Twinkle. Adult beginners can play Ode to Joy and Love Me Tender by the end of the lesson. At the end of the lesson, we step away from the piano, and I ask if they have any questions. I also ask if they enjoyed the lesson and if they're committed to playing the piano every day.

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

    I have a BA from Bucknell University, where I majored in music. I had a course on Piano Pedagogy, and I had my own piano students during my senior year. I have been teaching ever since, which equates to over 30 years of education by experience. I also read books on the art of teaching piano, music theory, child development, and the like.
