Looking for an at-home piano teacher

Hello parents

I'm looking for recommendations for an enthusiastic piano teacher for my children. My daughters prefer female teachers, they seem to relate to them better. She would have the right balance of fun and firmness for a 6 and 8 year old. We would like someone who could come to our home in Albany.

Both girls are currently in lessons but we are hoping to streamline our lives by hiring a teacher come to our home instead.

All your recommendations gratefully received.

Julay Brooks is a wonderful teacher.  http://www.julaybrooks.com/


If there is any possibility that you may change your mind and be open to a male teacher (Berkeley native, Oberlin Graduate and good friend of mine for 18 years), I'll gladly give you contact info for an excellent, experienced teacher! Message me if interested.


Michelle Lifshitz sounds like just the person you are looking for. She's been and continues to be our boys' teacher for the past several years, and we think she's great! She's a very talented pianist, and a dedicated, fabulous teacher. You can contact her via email michelle [at] pianoinberkeley.com or her facebook https://www.facebook.com/PianoWithMichelle/ 

She's currently working out summer schedule, so it would be a good time to reach out to her.
