Piano and Sax Lessons
My name is Olivia Swart and I teach piano from my home in Clayton, NC. I began teaching in July of 2022. I am a classically trained pianist with over 15 years of experience and I have played saxophone for 9 years as well. I have a strong background in both jazz and classical music. My lessons are designed to create well rounded musicians by balancing theory and performance skills. This includes learning to read music, chord theory, exploring different genres of music, and performing in front of an audience at recitals (attending recitals is not mandatory, but public performance is a great skill to have in music).
"We are very grateful you are our daughter's piano teacher. Because of you, you gave her the confidence and motivation to learn piano. Your expertise made her feel comfortable and your kindness make her feel welcomed. You demonstrate incredible patience. Thank you for the impact you've had on her, and your endless positivity made it joy for her to come to your class every time!"
"Olivia is a fantastic piano teacher. She has a great personality and takes an individualized approach with each student that builds confidence. The lesson plans are amazing and easy to follow! Her teaching temperament is outstanding and my daughter looks forward to her weekly lessons."
"My daughter is always looking forward to her piano lessons with Ms. Olivia. We are very happy and satisfied."
"I'm an adult leaner- never played piano before. Olivia is not only an excellent pianist but also a super patient instructor who keeps layering learning which keeps me on my toes. I'm very much enjoying learning from Olivia and excited to keep on learning."
