Christy Nielsen's Piano Studio

Welcome to my studio!

I am a piano teacher in Batavia, Illinois. I have been teaching piano lessons for over 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, and into your life, by teaching the student to play music on the the piano.

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

I am a student-driven teacher. That is, I like to include music the student enjoys and I am sensitive to the strengths of each student. The basic course for virtually all of my students is the Suzuki piano course, which is an excellent introduction to classical piano music. It is also a very good method for ear training, for strengthening music memory, and for gaining musical understanding. In addition, I emphasize piano technique, music reading, and basic music theory.

Currently Accepting New Students
