In-person lessons: I’m available for in-person lessons throughout the northeastern Ohio area; note that any destination more than 5 miles from the corner of Brainard & Mayfield Road will have a travel charge added to each lesson. Essentially, the areas I visit are Pepper Pike, Lyndhurst, Mayfield Heights, Gates Mills, Highland Heights, Cleveland Heights, Moreland Hills, Shaker Heights, Solon, and Beachwood Ohio. As stated above, I do visit areas outside of that for an additional travel fee. The standard lesson fee is $20 per half hour, for those lessons within 5 miles of the above noted location.
Live online lessons: I teach piano & guitar lessons on Skype and also Facetime, and have done so successfully even as far away as Salzburg, Austria – the birthplace of Mozart! The lesson fee is $20 per half hour online.
Educational content on Subscribestar: I post free music education content as well as subscriber-only content on my Subscribestar page – you can access the paid content for as little as $1 per month. (https://www.subscribestar.com/pianoguitarnoel). Browse the topics below the Testimonials:
Testimonials from students/parents:
“Great teacher! Very patient and kind, which is especially nice for a 5yo first-timer!” “Noel has been wonderful and my 7 year old has learned so much in just 6 piano lessons!! Thank you!” “Noel was great and my son really enjoyed his guitar lesson.”
“I can’t believe it but after three lessons you have me playing a David Gilmour solo note for note! I hope you are proud of yourself for taking a 64 year old Bass Player and showing him how to play something on a guitar”
