review of Blaine Hansen-- piano teacher

by on

I am an older adult and have been taking lessons from Blaine Hansen for about 2 1/2 yr. I started learning as a child, but I never really learned to sight-read well enough to play a piece "fluently". So I quit and didn't touch the piano for over 40 years. Since I have been taking lessons with Blaine, he has helped me to break many old, bad habits I was not even aware of and, has shown me new strategies and techniques for practicing my lessons that are helpful and effective. He is always cheerful, enthusiastic and very patient. Blaine is confident in my abilities where I have been lacking, and he gives me hope when I feel inadequate. I never dreamed I would be able to play pieces by Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, or Chopin, yet here I am playing music by these venerable composers. Besides giving me so much joy,the very act of learning and playing music has improved my memory and motor skills in other areas of my life.


     

Outstanding Piano Teacher!

by on

I began taking piano lessons from Blaine about seven months ago. Although we had a piano in our home when raising our children, I had never in my life had lessons of any kind. Blaine is an excellent teacher for adults (and no doubt for children as well). He is passionate about music and has incredible patience! I observe it first hand every week. He is tireless in his efforts to find the best method to teach each individual. I knew, at my age, learning piano would be difficult; but thanks to Blaine, I have learned more in a few short months than I ever thought possible. The lessons have been rewarding and enjoyable. I highly recommend Blaine as a piano teacher.


     

Piano lessons with Blaine Hansen

by on

The experience is terrific. Blaine’s teaching methods, his patience and sincerity are fascinating. He keeps track of each student’s progress. He always works with me as long and as varied ways as it takes to make me completely comfortable with a lesson or a theory. I never learnt to play piano until about 8 months ago, when I started taking lessons from Blaine. Within this short period of time, he has helped me progress quite a lot and has instilled a great amount of confidence, which I didn't have at the beginning. I will recommend Blaine as the piano teacher to anyone who is serious about learning to play piano.


     

Blaine really knows his stuff

by on

Blaine has taught me so much and helped me progress so much in the short 6 months or so that I've been taking lessons from him. I have almost completely learned a very difficult piece in that time because of what he's taught me. I was taking from a friend before him and my progress between then and now is astounding! He knows theory, skill and patience, which is key (especially with someone like me). He takes the time I need as many times as I need it to teach me a principle and his skill as a pianist is incredible. Money well, well spent. If you're considering him as a teacher, DO IT. You won't be disappointed!


     

Excellent Piano Teacher for Adults!

by on

Blaine is an excellent Piano teacher! I always regretted not sticking to the piano when I was younger. I didn't practice, so my mother eventually let me quit. I'm almost a 50 year old man now and started lessons with Blaine a year ago. In the past, I tried to learn on my own through books and the internet, but I just wasn't getting anywhere. I saw Blaine's add for lessons and decided to give it a try. That was the best thing I could have done for my piano playing. He has introduced me to some great works that are fun, yet challenging, shown me how to break down a song to learn it more efficiently, and how to add emotion to make a piece more enjoyable to play and listen to. I totally recommend Blaine to any youth or adult who wants to learn to play the piano. You will love it.
