Hello! My name is Rebecca, thank you for visiting this site. Please read below for lesson and pricing info. I love to teach music and share what I have learned so that others can enjoy the kind of fun and rewarding experiences I've had over the years.
Online Piano Lessons
I have been teaching piano for almost 25 years, and I have been teaching online lessons for more than seven years, so the "new" way of doing things is not new to me. I can help you learn the proper technique and musical skills for any kind of playing in the future, with more advanced teaching for classical piano. I can also teach chord playing for students that want to quickly learn their favorite songs. I teach children and adults. Student must have a suitable keyboard or piano.
Online Singing Lessons
I teach voice lessons for beginning students ages six and up. I focus on the foundations of singing, including proper posture, breathing techniques, pitch, harmonizing and reading music. I offer fun, affordable lessons for the beginning singer who wants a good foundation before moving on to more expensive lessons. No prior music experience is needed.
Online English Tutoring
I have a Bachelor of English degree and have tutored in English and ESL over many years. I am currently accepting junior high and high school students for help with grammar and writing.
General Lesson Info
Students must have their own instrument for all instrument lessons. Online lessons are done with FaceTime or Zoom.
Each of my online students will have access to my web page where I post exercises, web links, handouts, etc. I have a lot of fun at my lessons, but I emphasize the importance of practice. I use fun games, history projects and music journal topics to ensure my students get a well-rounded music education while enjoying what they are doing. This includes a musical achievement program that rewards progress. I host a yearly recital (which is also for online students) so my students will all get a chance to show off their new skills!

Rebecca P., Instructor
I have been teaching piano lessons for 25 years, and voice lessons for almost 10 years. I began playing piano at the age of 10. I continued taking lessons throughout high school and college. While in college I played piano and keyboards in a band, and also took music theory and music history classes. I played piano and sang at church for several years. I have participated in numerous musical theatre productions as a performer, music director, director and writer. I was a church choir director for several years, and currently direct two a cappella singing groups. I also play harp and ukulele, and am learning cello.
Piano is a great beginning instrument. Every note is in front of you without having to manipulate valves or strings. It is a great way to learn music theory for any kind of music or instrument study in the future. Students who play piano often go on to learn other instruments as well. Most college music departments require piano proficiency, no matter what instrument is being studied (including voice). Even if a student does not go on to study advanced music, the piano is a great instrument that can be enjoyed for a lifetime.
