Amber Shay Nicholson - Nicholson Piano Studio


I teach classical piano lessons for all levels, beginner to advanced. I have 20+ years of experience teaching privately and on college keyboard faculties; and I incorporate repertoire, technique, theory, sight-reading, music history, and ensemble playing into lessons. Repertoire styles include classical, jazz, ragtime, and sacred. Lessons are available in 30-, 45-, and 60-min. lengths, depending on age/ability/goals. I individualize my instruction to address each student's particular strengths, weaknesses, interests, and goals. My studio contains a Steinway B and a concert grand upright Baldwin to enable students to learn concerti and piano duo repertoire. I hold permanent professional certification as a teacher of piano (NCTM) from Music Teachers National Association. My studio is located in Tidioute, PA between Titusville and Warren, PA.
