Introduction: I'm patient and relaxed. I'm happy to take students that have only a keyboard (that's how I started), students that don't practice enough, and students that are very young. Many piano instructors don't teach these kinds of students but I do. It's really fun working with so many different personalities and levels. Learning the piano is hard and it's fun to watch a student discover that they're pretty good at playing the piano.

Ms. Michelle is the best teacher that I have heard about. She takes an interest in each student and tailoring her instruction to ensure each students is getting what they need. Each student is challenged, but only as far as she believe they would like. She encourages students to participate in music exams, festivals and audition; and helps them prepare for them. Each student has an idea of the music they like to play and will try to stay within their comfort zone. She tries to get them to go outside of their comfort zones and try a variety of music, which helps them play other music that would not have on their own. Not only does she teach them to play music, she encourages and helps them read and write music. She is very patient, communicates well and seems to enjoy helping students learn music. Our daughter has been going to her for 5 years and will continue to so. We ask our daughter every year do you want to continue with music lessons, knowing that this means: we pay and she practices, and our daughter is always adamant that she wants to continue. I believe Ms. Michelle has contributes to her desire to continue playing music, because of the her dedication to each student. I recommend Michelle Ayler to anyone who mentions they are looking for a good piano teacher.

My children have been taking lessons here for 6 years and have learned so much and become really great pianists - all due to the instructor at MEA piano. She is a great teacher and I recommend her to everyone I meet!

Michelle instills a lot of confidence. She clearly knows what she’s talking about and she’s great with kids! I’m excited about sending my kid to her classes.

FAQs

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

    MEA Piano studio offers lessons at various lengths (15, 30, 45, and 60 minutes). Discounts are available if students sign-up for automatic payments.

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

    For younger students, MEA Piano Studio offers all new students a free trial lesson. This way students can see if they like the instructor. Students are not pressured to register with the studio at the end of the trial lesson. For adults, MEA Piano Studio offers new students a thirty minute trial lesson for $25. Adults learn a few scales and technical pieces. This helps adults decide if they really want to learn how to play the piano. Many adults discover that learning the piano is harder than they thought!

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

    Before beginning MEA Piano Studio, I majored in Music Composition at Radford University. And before that, I attended Duke Ellington School of the Arts in Washington D.C.
