Piano Lessons – Alex's Piano Service

Piano Lessons

Piano owners often tell me about their excellent piano teachers, frequently very enthusiastically. Others ask me if I can recommend anyone to teach them piano. This list is my attempt to merge the two! I maintain this list by referral. Please contact me immediately if anything is out of date, or if you have a recommendation. Please note that the teachers on this list work in Maine or routinely work with Mainers, unless otherwise noted. Thank you!

In response to COVID-19, I’ve indicated all teachers who can teach you remotely.

These teachers use Skype, Zoom, or other apps to teach their students within the comfort and safety of their homes.

Teachers with remote capability are marked with a ★. Teachers who physically travel continue to be marked with a ☆.

☆ Teachers who can travel to your home. ★ Teachers who can teach remotely through apps.

New Hampshire If you are in the southern reaches of York county, you should also consider traveling to Portsmouth Music and Arts Center.

Online courses I recommend using an in-person teacher whenever possible. However, if you cannot get to a teacher, live out of range of traveling teachers, or cannot afford personal instruction, then there are several different online teachers worth trying. I’ve received several excellent reviews for Hoffman Academy, who offers many free lessons and also has a subscription service that includes personalized instruction. I’ve also received excellent reviews for Warren McPherson, who has a suite of online classes and is also local to Greater Portland.
