Piano Lessons at Kleisler Music Studio - Piano lessons can be enjoyed by students of all ages!
 : I am a private piano teacher in Suffolk, Virginia and have taught piano lessons to students in this area for thirty years.  I earned my Bachelors of Science in Piano Performance from Old Dominion University.  I am a Nationally Certified Teacher of Music in Piano through the Virginia Music Teachers Association and the Music Teachers National Association. I have also taught in Portsmouth, Chesapeake, and Virginia Beach.  I am very active in the Tidewater Music Teachers Forum and the Virginia Music Teachers Association and dedicated to maintaining my piano expertise and education by attending as many local, state and national conferences and workshops as possible. I feel that this helps keep me "up to date" and provide the best musical education for my students.
