Oliver Miller is both a math tutor and a piano teacher. He taught my son piano for several years and is a wise, kind educator and a gentle soul. Highly recommend him. Contact info for Oliver Miller: (510) 452-7729

I also recommend Oliver. He has tutored my son in math over the last couple of years and has been invaluable to him. My son has gained self confidence in addition to great grades. Although Oliver is not my son's music teacher (my son is a pianist) I know he has a deep appreciation for it as they often discuss music, and Oliver attended one of my son's concerts.

I'd like to enthusiastically recommend William Beatty as a piano teacher for any age or level.  William has been teaching our son for six years, and it has been an exceptionally positive experience.  William is a terrific teacher: patient, encouraging, and challenging all in the right balance.  While of course he brings plenty of ideas from across the piano repertoire, he is also very open to following his students' interests in terms of what music they play.  He's supportive of his students' musical endeavors beyond the piano too: he regularly attends school performances to see his students playing their "other" instruments.  We have loved having William in our lives and are so appreciative of the way he is cultivating in our son both a love of music and a deep understanding of the fundamentals.  William is based in Berkeley and is willing to come to your house for lessons.  You can contact him at wbeatty [at] earthlink.net
