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.
Tona is an amazingly compassionate and dedicated instructor. She provides voice, violin, and piano lessons to my 3 children; with great flexibility to their varying interests and moods. They are developing a wonderful appreciation for music and the capacity to make their own. Tona is very talented, open, and dedicated to her profession. I would recommend her without reservation.
I am excited to have started lessons today with Debbie and look forward to learning to play the 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.
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!
I started piano lessons with Sammy a month ago and he 's been great for me because Im self taught and play by ear and Sammy's been working with me on learning how to read and understand music theory . He is very patient and explains things so I can understand it ! I look forward to being one of Sammy's best students !!
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.
I just started working with The Piano Story.
John has been teaching my daughter to play piano for a long time. He is an outstanding musician, is very patient and incredibly flexible. His understanding of music theory and approach to the piano is inspiring. He can play and explain any style of music that we have asked and we could not be happier. I highly recommend John.
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.
I have been taking piano lessons for my kid and we could not be more happy! Great teachers.
We’ve had our son with Dave at age 7 until now. It’s been almost two years with Dave being his teacher. I’m so grateful that Dave is his first teacher for piano. Dave is patient, gentle, dedicated and makes things fun for my child. There were times where our son had a rough patch with certain pieces of music (and still does) and Dave guides him through it with confidence. Dave is musically gifted and all his students will say the same thing about him. He is passionate for music and piano and it shows with his teaching. If you are looking for a wonderful piano teacher who really knows their stuff you’ll be thrilled with Dave.
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!
