Cincinnati Piano Lessons


Looking for Piano Lessons?

If you have been thinking about taking piano lessons in Cincinnati, look no further than the oldest private music school if Cincinnati! At the Toedtman School of Music, we have six remarkably skilled and gifted piano teachers: Cathy Carson, Brad Caldwell, Luba Federov, Ken Gottlieb, and John K. Toedtman.

Cathy Carson has taught private piano lessons for 35 years, and has taught general music classes for students from Kindergarten through eighth grade. She also directs church choirs and local elementary school choirs.

Brad Caldwell is director of music at St. John United Church of Christ in Bellevue, KY, and works as an accompanist and vocal coach at Miami University. The Advanced Institute for Vocal Studies, Conservatoire de Paris, awarded Brad the Outstanding Collaborative Artist Award, and he has earned masters degrees in piano performance and vocal accompanying from Austin Peay State University and the College-Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati, respectfully.

Luba Federov is a resident piano teacher at the Friends Music Camp, which is based at Olney Friends School in Barnesville, Ohio, near Wheeling. She graduated from the Russian Conservatory of Music in Vladivostoc, and earned a masters degree from the Riga University in Latvia. She is a devotee and a performer of chamber music.

Ken Gottlieb has taught piano lessons at the Toedtman School of Music for more than a quarter-century. He also judges for the National Guild of Piano Teachers, and he earned a bachelor’s degree in music.

Dr. Andrew Peter Millar earned his Doctor of Musical Arts degree at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music, after having studied music in Texas, New Zealand, and London. He has performed solo recitals in the US and the UK, as well as concerto appearances with orchestras in Fort Worth and Auckland. He encourages his students to engage in Partner Lessons rather than Individual Lessons whenever possible, and encourages the study of musicianship and theory alongside piano studies.

John K. Toedtman founded the Toedtman School of Music in 1974 with his wife, Melissa, and spent two years at University of Michigan Law School before focusing on piano. He has performed the Rachmaninoff Second Concerto, the Mendelssohn G Minor Concerto, and an all-Chopin solo recital. In John’s studio, generous praise is given whenever possible and constructive criticism is always given with a smile.
