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 sonâs piano teacher. Through Jennyâs 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 Jennyâs expertise, patience, and special skill of possessing the ability to teach many walks of life how to play the piano."

About R. ROBIN
I specialize in teaching what the student has a desire to learn and great technique combined with a lot of music theory, for those taking piano and/or composition lessons with me. For piano lessons, I do require the student having 24-hour access to a piano or keyboard. It's nice to have an 88-key, weighted key digital piano or keyboard. If you don't have an 88 key instrument, you want to strive for that. I prefer the student own a 'real' piano, if possible.

I then went on to work with Mid-America Productions and the New England Symphonic Ensemble. Through this opportunity I have now sung over a dozen performances of various classical choral masterworks at Carnegie Hall in New York City! "How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Practice, Practice, Practice!"
I've been playing guitar in various bands since a very young age and have recently begun work on my first solo studio album. I am the guitarist in the band Tonight Theater. The styles I enjoy include (but are not limited to) Rock, Jazz, Classical, Reggae, Punk, Progressive Rock, Metal, Experimental, Avant Garde, Pop, Funk, Blues, and Jam. I can assist you with chords, scales, rhythm, improvisation, sight reading and rocking! I can also sing in nearly any style and can help you to do the same.
*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons will guide you in becoming a well rounded and proficient musician. I strive to ensure your development of healthy technique and encourage you to practice consistently. My biggest commitment as your music teacher is to your steady forward progress. My lessons are specifically designed to solidify your comprehension and to enable your application of the skills being learned. Your music lessons will typically follow this format:
*Tuning of the instrument (if applicable).
*Ear Training: exercises and techniques to develop your listening and aural skills.
*Review of current assignments, techniques, and music theory concepts.
*Introduction of new concepts, techniques, and exercises.
*Work on current repertoire assignments. Songs are chosen by the student and the teacher and are level/age appropriate.
*Final thoughts on the day's lesson and a quick review of key concepts covered.
I look forward to helping you reach your dreams! No goal is too lofty! :)
*** Studio Equipment ***
There is a living room for parents to wait during the lesson if they'd like. My studio contains amplifiers, an upright grand piano, multiple acoustic and electric guitars, some computer recording equipment, and seating for parents to sit in on the lesson if they'd prefer.
*** Travel Equipment ***
Acoustic Guitar, Electric Guitar, Small Tube Amplifier, Music Stand, Tuner, Picks, Teaching Materials.
*** Specialties ***
I pride myself on my distinct ability as a rock guitar improvisor. Improvisation is at the core of my live performance. If you want to hear a song played the same way over and over again, listen to a recording. Live performance, to me, is about constantly providing new life and breath to the material being played. Each distinct performance captures unique attributes only available for channeling at that one moment and it will never be recreated.
Scott is truly brilliant and has given Ben the attention to detail that helps him continue to learn more about music theory. We love Tuesday lessons..Scott is so flexible in his lesson plan..he see's an opportunity to give extra information and stops to deliver more than the standard chords and finger placement.
I am very pleased with Scott.He is very likable. His knowledge of guitar teaching is very easy to understand. It is going to be an adventure(so much to learn), but I am looking forward to it.Ron W
Scott is great! Very patient with me and understands my wanting to really master piano playing. Very pleasant to have piano lessons with!
I am available to teach in the student's home or online.
Piano studies overview:
You can play what you can hear. I see that students have a well-rounded approach towards musicianship and playing. Lessons should include theory, ear training, etc. to ensure that students understand what they are play
Beginning students might start with a method such as the well-known 'Piano Adventures' by Faber and Faber. More advanced students will work on progressively more demanding literature.
In a piano lesson, we will cover many different aspects of playing. The student and I will analyze a new piece of music in various ways while coming up with an idea of how it sounds. I will play the piece and make practice suggestions. The student will play prepared pieces, and I will make suggestions. I value spontaneity.
My adult students say I am insightful.
