My teaching approach grounds students in Musical fundamentals and Piano Technics by combining ear training, Note reading, composition and performance exercises along with Repertoire.

I provide an enjoyable well-disciplined environment for my students and work with most famous Piano Books such as Bastien, Faber & Faber, Alfred.

I also organize performance opportunities and piano recitals for students and their families which is a great experience for both students and their loved ones.The purpose is that students could meet each other and observe others' accomplishments which provide great inspiration and joy to the students and their parents.

My daughter started with Niki almost 2 years ago at age 9 and we feel so fortunate to have her as a piano teacher.

I can teach a variety of styles from classical Contra-bass an bow technique to jazz, or if you prefer we can work on syncopation for metal, holding down changes for country or just rocking it out. If you need to learn how to slap it or want to learn to strum it, then you got the right guy. I can help you work or learn to sight read sheet music, learn tab, and improve over changes/modes. Basic or advanced music theory is alright, or if you want to get really deep into it then you've got the guy that discovered Siegel Harmonics. Google it and yes there is a follow up (double blind peer-review) study coming!

I also spent a year singing and playing Bob Dylan covers on bass while on a solo tour in Stockholm Sweden. Stockholm is where they hand out the Nobel Prize, the year following Bob Dylan won a Nobel Prize. There is more to the story I assure you. Now, I cannot officially claim there was a connection, but if you my future student want to believe that there was a connection then I ...

"Damien is a fantastic teacher! Our daughter will be a high school sophomore when school starts this month. She has been taking clarinet lessons from him for the last two years. Damien gives lessons at her school, but is also flexible enough to come to our home when school is out, or if we need to squeeze in a weekend lesson. He is a talented musician, and as a teacher, Damien is encouraging, thorough, and challenging, in a low-key manner. He wants his students to play with confidence. He is a person of integrity, and respectful to his students--she looks forward to her lessons. Damien has made excellent solo selections for her. With his teaching and guidance, our daughter did very well at the All Region competitions in her 8th and 9th grade years. Lastly, Damien is a good communicator, which is greatly appreciated."

"Mike has forever changed my life. From the very beginning, he focused on instilling the love of music in me rather than the nitty gritty technical details of playing the guitar. That came later. He opened my world to the many different genres of music. I am now applying to conservatories and still see Mike for my weekly dose of musical inspiration. I would not be the person I am today without Mike. If he can fit you into his schedule, consider yourself blessed."

"Excellent Instructor

I highly recommend Benjamin! I have had several instructors and I can honestly say that he is the best I've had so far. He doesn't stick to any rigid lesson plans. His teaching style is very dynamic, he will taylor the lesson to fit your interest and level of playing. He keeps things fun and interesting and is good at coming up with creative exercises to try and challenge you. He also knows a lot of different music styles from what I can tell. I highly recommend him."
