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.
Debbie is timely and well organized. Every interaction I have had with her has been positive. It is clear she loves her job. I am confident my children will love learning how to play the piano with her.
Dr. Donna Whited is very knowledgeable and patient. She offers a comprehensive and well structured curriculum for adult beginners. Reasonable price and fairly flexible schedule. I recommend her to anyone who wants to take piano lessons
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!
Brett was extremely flexible in being able to provide us a timeframe for piano lessons for our daughter, responded back quickly to emailed questions, and my daughter adored her piano tutor. We're really excited to get her started in weekly lessons.
Hello - I'm happy to share our experience with Serini Piano Studio! Our son, age 10, has been a student of Serini Piano Studios for about a year and half. We also just recently started lessons for our 6 year old son. I couldn't recommend a better teacher. Her style is so warm and nourishing, yet she keeps the kids on task and really productive. She has a great feel for each kids' strengths and draws on their personality and adapts her lessons to the student. My oldest son has ADHD and can lose focus very easily, but she manages to keep him interested and thriving with his lessons and love of piano. We hope to continue with Serini Piano Studio for years to come!
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!
Teresa is a very talented musician and experienced piano/guitar teacher. She is kind and patient with all of her students and with everyone around her. Her lessons are affordable but also high qualitythey cover music theory, technique, musicianship, repertoire, and even a bit of music history. I have had the pleasure of observing many of her music lessons and taking piano lessons myself. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to learn piano or guitar.
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.
My 8-year-old son has taken weekly piano lessons with David for about a year. David is a pleasure to work with. He is professional and personable - highly recommended!
Mr. Walls is an enthusiastic and patient teacher. As a choir member at Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton for the past fifteen years, I have been able to sing liturgical music, and participate with other choirs in singing more complex pieces of music, such as requiems and compositions for rites of the church and special occasions. Our choir has sung in various languages, and joined other choirs in ecumenical choir fests. Mr. Walls has studied music composition, conducting, and history, and is an accomplished musician on several instruments, including the piano, organ, and guitar. He has several years teaching experience in the U.S. and abroad. I would say Mr. Walls' expertise and talent are second to none.
I just started working with The Piano Story.
My daughter is loving her piano lessons with Annie! She is so kind and patient with her.
Christopher did an amazing job to help make our evening special. He played a great selection of classical and jazz piano and would be thrilled to have him back.
My daughter is having a wonderful time learning piano with Stephanie. She is a fantastic musician/teacher and her lesson plans are really fun and informative! My husband and I have seen a vast improvement in our daughter's playing with each lesson. Highly recommended!
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.
My 12 1/2-yr-old daughter has been taking private lessons with Miyako for many years, after beginning as a shy, anxious little girl. After all this time, I don't have the words to describe how consistently wonderful Miyako has been. She is an expert, and continually seeks to further her knowledge/skills by attending premier international music programs. I am astounded when I hear my daughter practice, that a 12 yr old can play these intricate pieces by piano masters, and that Miyako has inspired her and taught her the technical skills to do it. Miyako seems to be well connected with the local music community and offers different opportunities for her students to perform. She is a good communicator and is generous in her flexibility to accommodate schedule changes when needed. She is also reasonably priced. Miyako is truly the best of the best and I would welcome any personal questions you may have by phone or text (301) 788-2163. At different times over the years we have worked with Miyako at The Piano Works in downtown Frederick and at Miyako's home studio, so I can offer a perspective on both.
Mrs Mikesell is the perfect combination of sweet and no nonsense. My son is incredibly intelligent and absolutely LOVES Mrs Mikesell. She is certainly cultivating a love of piano in his young mind. Her lessons are very affordable and well worth it! Thank you Mrs Mikesell!
Excellent teacher who teaches music very holistically: not just how to play the piano but ear-training, theory, improvising, music history, and more. My son has made huge gains in just two years. Highly recommend.
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!
Michael has been teaching my kids piano and guitar. He is patient and really connects with them. He teaches them current music to keep them interested but he also teaches theory and mechanics. Great experience for my kids.
