Joan R. Patterson, NY

I offer piano and keyboard lessons to all ages of students. Special age appropriate lessons are available to students as young as 4 and 5 years old. Lessons are also available for adult students who are beginners or want who brush up on their piano skills. Students will study basic piano technique. You will learn how to play chords and scales and develop a good hand position. Basic music theory and learning how to read music will be part of each lesson. Students will pick the style of music that is of interest to them and learn how to create a repertoire of songs. Rhythm and learning how to keep good timing is an important part of each lesson.

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.

About Max

I have performed with the Juilliard Orchestra, the U.S. Coast Guard Band, and International Opera Theater. As tenor saxophonist in the Ineo Quartet, I received honors in the J.C. Arriaga, Music Teachers National Association (MTNA), and North American Saxophone Alliance (NASA) chamber music competitions. I currently perform with the Asylum Quartet, playing repertoire spanning classical, jazz, klezmer, and indie/electronic music, including many of my own arrangements. I hold a Master's in Music from The Hartt School where I studied with Carrie Koffman, and a Bachelor of Music summa cum laude from Arizona State University (ASU), where I studied with Dr. Timothy McAllister.

John A. New Milford, CT

I'm a product of the piano school of Tobias Matthay at the Royal College of music in London. I studied with two of his proteges, Frank Mannheimer and Denise Lassimone, as well as Trinity College of Music, London. I can teach anyone from preschoolers who can't read music to advanced colleagues.

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.

Alan S. Falls Village, CT

When it comes to the piano each instrument is different and has its own touch and tone quality. The pianist must be a good musician before being an instrumentalist. I work with my students to produce the fullest tone and "legato" touch possible. One must be extremely sensitive to the piano's dynamics, and listen carefully.
