Although I stopped my piano lessons a while ago due to some personal issue, I really enjoyed my learning process with DeAnna. She organized her lessons very well and made me progressing every week. She's a really good teacher. Love her!
Daniel
Most single productive day I’ve had at the piano.
Martin
DeAnna has excellent credentials as a pianist and music theorist, but more importantly for me she is a patient teacher and good communicator who works hard to ensure that I learn and understand even the most basic skills and techniques. She is also fun to talk to and be with, and her love of music is infectious. She is an excellent teacher for an older student, and I imagine for younger ones too.

If 5 stars is for Best instructor ever than Jillian is the winner! When I first started, I was so afraid of singing off pitch that I was afraid to sing! Jillian has helped me to gain confidence for singing from my heart, expressing emotion. I do not even worry about pitch anymore. All of Jillian's students are so lucky like me to have Jillian for support and guidance to make our dreams a reality!

Great with my 8 year old daughter!

I ADORE Jillian! She is so sweet and encouraging. When my schedule is crazy she does everything in her power to accommodate me. It is clear that she knows what she is doing. After trying to teach myself guitar for YEARS, with the way she explains things, I am already further along after just 3 lessons. She also has a gorgeous voice! I can't wait to continue learning from her!

I can’t say enough good things about Lori! As a beginning adult leaner, Lori has been so much fun to take lessons with. She is first and foremost extremely knowledgeable, I am playing far beyond what I thought I was capable of because of her excellent teaching ability. She is fun and I have thoroughly enjoyed every lesson with her. If you want a fun and enjoyable learning experience Lori is the teacher for you!!

Lori has been a fantastic teacher. For a returning student like myself, she has been patient and encouraging, both important qualities. I have learned much during my sessions with Lori and I believe she will provide great instruction to anyone that would care to study with her.

Online Piano Teacher

As the award winning pianist with doctorate in piano performance, I have performed at several different nations in the world and taught at Piano Academy and a few universities over 25 years teaching from the beginners to doctorate/professional pianists. With many years of experience as a performer and piano educator, my piano lessons are customized and catered to each student's learning style and goals for the most optimal learning experience. While they will LOVE to play the piano music, they will also be building a great foundation of piano technique, music theory and performances. I teach classical music, traditional/contemporary worship songs with improvisation and accompanying. Through my years of teaching, my students have won many competitions and earned highest scores at the state piano exams and pursued music as their profession. I look forward to working with you to create the MOST BEAUTIFUL MUSIC!

Dr. Deborah Backus is an amazingly exceptional teacher! I have taken piano lessons from her for 3 years. I am so happy that I found her and that she was available. Of course, she has an incredible background, technical skills and knowledge, but she also has an ability to connect with a student. She is able to truly teach to make it fun and enjoyable, educate, help the student understand the “story” behind the music, and inspire. I spent over a month researching and interviewing piano teachers. I am so pleased to have Dr. Backus as my teacher. She has really allowed me to “connect” with the music and significantly enhanced my enjoyment of playing the piano. Her communication and understanding skills are extraordinary. In addition, she is a very high quality person in many ways with a huge heart for her students and music.
Debra
I am so happy that I found Deborah! She is an amazing teacher and I have learned so much from her. She focuses on what my interests are, which is worship music, and teaches me so much technique and theory through music that I love. She has an amazing heart for worship and I come away every week feeling so blessed! I am amazed at how far I've come in the time we've been working together.
Ellen
Deborah is a diamond in the rough. She is a talented pianist and an excellent teacher. I spent countless hours during COVID searching for a piano instructor for my daughter, a beginner. Many veteran teachers prefer to teach intermediate-to-advanced students, and even fewer are willing to teach virtually. I'm so grateful to have found Deborah. She provides high-quality instruction to my daughter, and communicates with ease using technology. Deborah is engaging, professional, and her love of music is infectious.

Iryna is amazing. She is truly talented in her craft and is a fantastic teacher. Her passion is apparent and she is skilled at meeting her students wherever they are. Very young to old, beginner or seasoned player -- anyone is lucky to have Iryna instructing them.
Jelena R.
Iryna is a very talented teacher! She found a great approach to interest and motivate kids in the music and make the work that is needed in order to learn an instrument fun. My daughter enjoys the lessons and I can see how she is improving and learning with Iryna. Iryna pays very close attention to the child's learning process and does everything to help improve the skill but also to have them enjoy and learn to appreciate music. It is delightful to see my child enjoy the lessons and wanting to practice and prepare for them.

Iryna has been working with my young daughter for about 5 months now, and she is wonderful! She keeps the lessons fun and gives us lots of ideas and varieties of things to work on throughout the week to keep it engaging for a 5 year old, which is no small feat!
