Where are Lessons Offered
In Teacher Studio
In Student Home
Chariti has been teaching piano to students ages 5 to 65+ for nearly 15 years. Her teaching is a very sound, pedagogical approach that equips students with the abilities and knowledge of note-reading, theory, sight-reading, timing, self-discipline, expression, and passion for music. Basic curricula include theory, technique, method, sight-reading, hymns, classics, and fun repertoire. In addition, students participate in recitals and group lessons, in which they learn additional elements including ear-training, composition, improvisation, and music history.
Lessons are held in her home studio in East Allentown, and students play on a lovely K. Kawai 6'1" Grand Piano.
If you are interested in taking piano lessons from Mrs. Fox, please contact her directly through her personal website, foxpianostudio. com, or call Chariti at (contact me).

My Musical Influences
Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin
I have had the pleasure of taking lessons from Chariti Fox for almost ten years. Under her teaching and guidance, I have progressed to an advanced level in my playing skills and have learned to play pieces from composers such as Beethoven, Bach, Mozart, Schubert, Claude Debussy, etc. Without her, I never would have learned and achieved as much as I have. She is one of the nicest people that I have met and extremely comfortable to be around. Any student would be privileged to have her as their teacher.
