About Joan

I am very passionate about music and spend many hours everyday playing the piano and teaching. My love for music began at a very young age. I remember playing with the glockenspiel and toy organ as a young child. I started playing the piano by ear and then later studied formally in college and received my degree. I studied piano at Concordia College and The Westchester Conservatory of Music. I teach all styles of piano, Classical, Pop, Rock, Broadway, or Jazz. I am patient, friendly and know how to make learning music fun. I offer piano and keyboard lessons to ages 5 and up, beginners to advanced.

Al P. Congers, NY

About Al

Born in Portland ME, Al's parents moved around a lot and finally settled in New York. When Al was 10, he took his first lessons in piano, then later trumpet, guitar, drums and at 13 yrs old decided to stick with bass guitar. At 16, Al joined his first band and was hooked. Since then Al has improved his craft studying with numerous instructors and gained real world experience through playing and touring worldwide with many bands and ensembles and today is bassist for Jose Feliciano.

Every student is different. I've found that students have vastly different, ages, tastes, goals, and want to learn for different reasons. They also learn and develop in different ways and at different paces. That said, I use the first lesson to determine goals and a ...

Bass lesson With Al

Had a really nice first lesson with Al. He is a good guy and a we had fun jamming out on a couple jazz standards and talking about scales. He has good knowledge of the instrument and i was happy to see that he played a 6string like myself. I enjoyed the lesson.

I started out taking Piano lessons with Cheryl and later switched to voice lessons. My brother and I took lessons with her for about 8 or so years and we love her! I learned a lot about harmonizing, pitch and my singing improved a lot. Highly recommend.

I took piano lessons with Cheryl for a month and learned so much in a short amount of time! She customized lessons to my skill level and interest in songwriting and assigned me songs to learn that were both challenging and fun!

John A. New Milford, CT

About John

I think it's easier to learn the piano if you are having fun, and that means playing music that you like.

You can always choose what you will play in lessons, and lessons are designed around your preferences, and move at a pace comfortable to you.

I'€™m not a disciplinarian in any way. I have had the complete classical conservatory experience, yet that doesn't mean I expect that of you in any way, especially kids.

For children, the best start involves games and immediate playing to give the child a taste of the real joy of making music. Reading exercises have their place, but not at the very beginning.

I want you to play a song you know and enjoy your first lesson, and I can easily help you do that.

It's in your interest to play meaningful music, ...

John's biggest strengths are his patience, understanding and seeming endless facility with music. I read music but not fast enough to allow me to play good pieces, so John translates everything into physical movements. This makes it very easy to play interesting music, which makes me want to play more. I think he has shown me how learn, how to refine things so they are satisfying. I highly recommend him as a teacher, for beginners or advanced.

My son is six years old and has been taking piano lessons with John for six months. John is a unique and engaging teacher. His extensive knowledge of music and skill at the keyboard were apparent from the beginning. He can easily demonstrate a multitude of songs and then teach them on the spot. My son is excited to play a "whole song," be it Sponge Bob or Beethoven. John's teach-by-numbers technique appeals to my son's love of numbers and patterns yet he is also quickly learning how to read sheet music. John really is skilled at disguising a lesson on technique or theory as a game. He is goofy while at the same time encouraging and supportive of my son. He keeps it light, fun, and skill appropriate. Since he comes to our home, I also appreciate John's focus on the lesson - he arrives and departs in a timely manner. I highly recommend John as a piano teacher.

John is a fantastic piano teacher! In typical fashion, I was classically trained for many years as a child, dropped piano for ~30 years, and then re-started at around 40, again with a classical instructor. After a year or so I began working with John, who was a real breath of fresh air. First the first time in my life I began to truly understand the instrument, music theory, and composition; all while having a lot more fun. We've worked on a wide variety of music - pop, classical, blues, etc. - great for me as I get bored easily. John is incredibly patient - I am no great talent and often have weeks where I barely practice, but he takes it completely in stride. In addition to being a great instructor, John is an incredibly talented pianist in his own right - sort of like taking golf lessons from Phil Mickelson. He has also worked with two of my daughters, who prefer him to any other instructors they've had.
