About Jenny

I enjoy the benefits of private teaching to help students realize their full potential.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe anyone can learn to play the piano or sing, but you must enjoy what you are doing. Once you learn the basics you will be able to start choosing music that you like.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I use a Roland Digital Piano to teach my lessons. I use programs on the computer to reinforce musical concepts learned.

*** Specialties ***
I like to use a variety of methods to teach depending on my students likes and abilities.

A Great Teacher!

Our son experienced a double-stroke/traumatic brain injury at birth. During his life, my wife and I have constantly implemented as many therapies and different learning environments, as possible. Not surprisingly, we have read how music can facilitate learning for children in various subjects and even enhance many of their skills that could be used in other areas.

As parents, we believe it has been a true blessing, finding a teacher such as Jenny, and we are very fortunate to have her as our son’s piano teacher. Through Jenny’s great patience and teaching methods, our 4-year-old son, today, is able to read and play his notes. We believe that this is possible because Jenny is a very experienced teacher knowing when to modify and implement the lesson plans in order for one to reach their full potential.

What a joy it is to see our son read, comprehend, and play his music. We are greatly appreciative for Jenny’s expertise, patience, and special skill of possessing the ability to teach many walks of life how to play the piano.

About Louis

My name is Lou S., and I come from a family of Drummers. My Father was a Master Drum Instructor and taught my Uncle, Brother, me and over 2800 other students in a teaching career that spanned more than 40 years.
As the youngest in the family I had the opportunity to learn from my Dad as well as my other family members. My structured lessons started at the age of 5 and by the time I reached high school I was booking my own band and performing weekly at local clubs and events.
There was a certain amount of pressure growing up in this environment. After all, if you’re the teacher’s kid, you’re expected to be good, right? This is true, but the way my Father taught and how he inspired me was to be sure I had my own identity. He was not making clones, he was teaching ...

Passionate about drums; reflected in his teaching

Lou took me by surprise after the first few lessons. His preference is to teach the foundation and basically build up from there. This sort of put me off at first because I wanted to learn a specific genre without all the extras that I thought I didn't need. Fortunately, he was able to help me understand that by learning all of the simple rudiments, I can play anything I want. Now, I haven't reached that stage yet, but I have no doubt that I can get there with Lou's help.

Clarinet Lessons

I went to Mr. Masiello for clarinet lessons for years in high school and he has always helped me achieve making regionals every year, making state my last year in high school and consistently holding my first chair in the school band. Although, I did not pursue a career in music, he still had influence on where I am today [DVM in June 2014]. And for that I will always be appreciative. Mr. Masiello is an exceptional teacher and a very amiable individual.

Great Teacher

I have been taking lessons with Tony since 2009 and I have seen nothing but improvement in the way I play. I saw my biggest improvements when I would audition for the regional band. My score increased each year. I went from 560 my first year to 915 out of 1000 my last. You will not be disappointing when you will take lessons with him. You will continue to grow if you follow his lessons.

Dr. Masiello has great patience for a beginning adult. He was able to bring me up to a level where I was able to play with my local community band and not feel embarrassed. He pays attention to details that others would miss. I recommend him without any reservations.

One of the Best

I have studied with several instructors, and I found Al to be the best. He not only knows his craft and takes pride in it, but he has a unique way of connecting with his students.

He listens, observes, and then starts to create a curriculum that is specific to the student. He can then convey this material in a manner that is fun, easily understood, and constructive.

I would highly recommend Al as an instructor.

MY daughter loves playing!!

I tried to teach my daughter, Rose, how to play the guitar and I couldn't get her to follow through with her lessons. Al has made the guitar fun for her. She'll play AT LEAST an hour a day now, learning songs given to her and playing warm-ups like scales.

Al also teaches music theory so Rose understands music more. Any teacher that gets a student that excited is doing something right.

Excellent Instructor!!

Our son has been working with Al for nearly a year and we are very pleased with the growth we have seen in our son’s drumming ability!
Al seeks my son’s input when selecting songs to teach him and encourages my son to apply his knowledge to learn new songs on his own. They go over what he taught himself and then he gives him new beats to incorporate to what he knows. My son truly enjoys learning from a skilled professional like Al. He is an awesome instructor!!!

Piano · In home
Susan was my Piano teacher for a couple of years before she moved to Arizona. She was just wonderful. A great teacher and yet flexible and understanding. Although she made sure I was challenged, she was willing to work with me on the pieces that I was interested in and kept me encouraged to continue playing and learning the piano with my terribly busy schedule. I highly recommend Susan as a music and piano teacher.

Singing · In studio
I took lessons from Susan for many years when she lived in Michigan. She started teaching me how to sing when I was in middle school, and I kept taking lessons from her throughout high school. She has amazing patience and talent, and she's very knowledgeable. She not only taught me the basics and mechanics of music, but she also taught me how to really express myself through music. I thought I was a good singer to begin with, but she taught me more than I ever thought was possible. I've seen her teach children from my church and the older folks from the adult choir, so she's very flexible and versatile. Needless to say, I highly recommend Susan to anyone looking to take lessons!
