I have been teaching all levels of piano for many years, from beginners to advanced and professional. I hold a Doctorate in Piano Performance, an Artist Diploma from the Mozarteum Academy in Austria, and a Bachelor's Degree in Piano Performance. I am especially strong in teaching technique, sightreading, and repertoire. I have also had extensive Suzuki teacher training. My students excel in competitive and non-competitive events including CM.
About DeAnna H.

Hello! I have been teaching piano since 1982 when I finished my degree in piano performance. I also have a Doctorate in Piano Performance, and have an artist diploma from the Mozarteum Academy in Salzburg, Austria. However, I think what makes me special is that I combine a friendly approach to teaching with high standards. My students excel in competitive and non-competitive events. Many go on to successful careers in music.

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!

Most single productive day I’ve had at the piano.

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.
