About Me

Does your child want to learn to play piano or flute? Do YOU want to learn how to play the music YOU appreciate, on piano/flute? If so, I'm the teacher for you. My students have the opportunity to learn both the standard classical literature and method, as well as any other type of music they choose. That may include: pop, rock, jazz, broadway, folk, hymns, ragtime, big band, whatever genre the student prefers. I help students find the music they're interested in learning. My musical background includes a B.A. in Piano Performance from University of St. Catherine, St. Paul, MN. I've taught private and group piano and flute lessons for children and adults, and performed professionally for 15 years. In addition to teaching, I am currently Music Director for Peace Lutheran Church, Lauderdale, MN, where I have worked and volunteered for 15 years. I am an active member of the MN Music Teachers Assoc. (MMTA) and of the Assoc. of Professional Piano Instructors (A.P.P.I).

Student Reviews

St. Paul, MN

"All three of our children have taken lessons from Vicky, starting in the second grade. We have now been with her more than 10 years! Vicky is always good with them, letting them set the pace but encouraging and challenging them to do their best. They learned about music, piano, study skills, and about themselves. We would recommend Vicky Mackerman to anyone of any age as a music instructor." -Ellie B. and Dale H.

Falcon Heights, MN

After defending my dissertation, I seriously thought about what I really wanted to do in life. I have always wanted to play the piano, but considered myself musically challenged. So, the first question that I asked Vicky was: Would you agree to teach a middle-aged absolute beginner who is possibly tone-deaf? I failed to mention (or didn't know it at the time) that I have difficulties following instructions and cannot do assignments in chronological order. Taking lessons and getting to know Vicky is one the best aspects in my Minnesotan life. I realized that learning a new skill requires a lot of repetition and this has made me more tolerant as a teacher (I teach German and Norwegian.) Vicky has been infinitely patient and has guided my progress with consideration for the most important thing - the joy of learning. -- Adult student for 5 years

Minneapolis, MN

It has been such a pleasure taking piano with (Vicky) all these years. I have learned a lot and have really enjoyed myself. I am so happy I stuck with it all the way through. Thank you for always being so understanding and flexible. That made it so much easier to keep going....Thank you so much for helping to prepare me for music studies in college. I feel much more confident now, and I actually enjoyed learning all that theory. - Piano student of nine years.
