Christy Nielsen's Piano Studio - Welcome!

Christy Nielsen's Piano Studio

Welcome to my studio!

I am a piano teacher serving the Fox Valley and I am located in Batavia, Illinois. I have been teaching piano lessons for about 20 years. It is a labor of love for me. I enjoy my students and their families, and I enjoy bringing music into their lives by teaching them to play the piano.

I Am Currently Accepting New Students

If a child hears good music from the day of his birth, and learns to play it himself, he develops sensitivity, discipline, and endurance. He gets a beautiful heart. Shinichi Suzuki, Nurtured by Love

All ages are welcome in my program. The program consists of piano technique, ear training, music reading, and music theory. Both private and group lessons are offered, with student recitals held twice a year.

About Me

I am trained as a teacher in the Suzuki (language acquisition) method. I have completed training in the Suzuki Piano School's "Every Child Can" introductory course, and also Volumes 1, 2, 3, and 4. I take yearly professional training with the Suzuki Institute. My experience also includes a music major in piano at Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin and I majored in piano pedagogy at Brigham Young University.

Professional Memberships

I am a member of the Suzuki Association of the Americas. I belong to, and am currently serving as the president of, the Waubonsee Valley Music Teachers Association, a chapter of the Illinois State Music Teachers Association (ISMTA). ISMTA offers the Achievement In Music program (AIM) for students, which consists of graded exams for students in theory, performance, and technique. I take part in this program if the parents and student request it.
