Piano Lessons in Pittsburgh (Upper St. Clair)
I am a piano teacher located in Pittsburgh, PA (15241) with a Masters degree in piano performance and a Bachelors degree in mathematics. I teach kids age 5 and up, and I teach all levels (beginning through very advanced).
Results: Many of my former students have been accepted into competitive music programs and received music scholarships after graduating from high school, and numerous students have gone into teaching careers themselves. My students always feel confident when participating in outside musical events because of the high standards I set for them.
Rate: Payment each month is the same flat amount, based on 46 lessons per year. Please contact me for actual rate.
Technology: Students are encouraged to spend 15 minutes per week before or after their normally-scheduled lesson using ear training and theory software on the studio computer. I use ear-training software to accommodate all ages and levels of music. When students advance beyond basic theory/ear training software, they move on to collegiate-level software that would normally constitute a two-year program for college music majors.
Clearances: I have Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearance as well as “no record” from the PA Police criminal record check.
If you are not one of my students, be sure to check out the CD shopping links in addition to the links to the right, which are probably the greatest resources of general interest on this website.
Prospective students may also want to visit www.twedt.com to see my artist site, which includes audio samples of performances, compositions, sheet music, and video.
There are articles on my music blog that would be of interest to anyone.
