WHO AM I?
A Skilled Piano Teacher
My name is Dr. Ann Elisa Haertling-Maclam, I’m an experienced Piano Teacher offering personalized piano and composition instruction to students in the Dublin, Powell, Olentangy, Worthington, Hilliard and Columbus, Ohio areas in my Dublin, Ohio Studio. I also teach students online who are living in New York City.
I began piano lessons when I was 4 years old, following in my sister's footsteps, and continued lessons thru high school. I played piano in the National Piano Guild Auditions and in the OMEA Solo and Ensemble Contests. I was also the pianist for the Westerville High School Orchestra. I went on to earn both Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Piano Performance and a Ph.D. in Music Education from The Ohio State University.
I began teaching piano in 1976 from my parent's home in Westerville, Ohio. I have been teaching privately ever since. I taught children from ages 3.5 and up and adults. As part of my Ph.D. program I taught class piano to music majors and non-majors, and to adults as well as private lessons.
I offer piano lessons for young beginners, ages 4-6, and for ages 6 and up, all levels. I also teach advanced pianists who want to continue to grow their music knowledge and also to those who plan to study piano in college. I want all of my students to learn to be proficient at reading, counting, technique and theory. I teach many types of music from classic to popular, and I love to teach duets and larger piano ensembles. I offer recitals to showcase each student's talent and to help develop confidence, poise and sensitivity. My composition workshops are designed to facilitate musical imagination and self-exploration. Ultimately my goal is to foster a love for music which lasts a lifetime. I offer 30, 45 and 60 minute lessons depending upon your needs. I am active in the Piano Guild, and in OMTA.
