love teaching and keeping students interested. It's important to find titles that students can get behind and taking time to find pieces that are appropriate and interest students is my first priority.

I like to make sure that exercises are not looked at as a punishment. Breaking down how to apply a technique is as important as learning it.

Finally, I like to keep things light. I'm not going to motivate you by scaring you into practicing. There are other teachers that are good at that, but that's not my style. I'd rather work on finding out how to get you to be self motivated and actually enjoy what you're doing.

My specialties include jazz and pop styles.

Steve has been great. We had to switch to online due to social distancing, and it has worked out just fine. He even gave us the first online lesson free to see if it we wanted to continue with it. He is a natural at communicating with kids, keeps it very fun, and has been great at getting our 8 year old started with piano.

As a teacher, a nurturing, encouraging, and comfortable environment can be expected for any student who chooses to pursue trumpet or piano lessons with me. I believe music lessons should be fun and reassuring for students, in addition to, providing constructive feedback for their musical development.

Jon was very patient with me as a beginner with never having learned how to read music before or play any instruments. I learned a lot which gave me confidence to continue with my lessons.
Thomas
When I look back on my education, very few things really stick out. However, I will never forget those amazing teachers that bring a subject to life and change the way you think, forever. Jon is one of those teachers. He is encouraging, patient, informative, and helps you grow as a musician. I started as a beginner with a dream to play the piano. Even though I am still learning, that dream is now a reality and I can really play! If you have an opportunity to study with Jon, I highly suggest you take it. He changed my life and I'm sure he could change yours.

"Ronald Chaz Barcenilla was an employee at the Johannes School of Music (1997-2011) and an independent contractor (2012 - current) . He has been the music education consultant and coordinator to develop a music and language curriculum primarily for college entrance matriculation. He also teaches Piano Performance, Vocal Technique, Composition, and Music Theory. There has been nothing but positive remarks and praises from both parents and students. His passion and dedication for teaching children, teens, and young adults (oh there were 3 senor citizens at 78, 82, and 95 year of age also!) is reflected in the top- quality recitals and concerts that have been a half-yearly and yearly goal for his students, as well as the examination reports achieved in the majority of cases in the Distinction range. He has also produced very fine musicians, most have become music graduates and a few are well known in the industry. It's deceiving because he does not at all look his age considering all the achievements he has received. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending the talents of this great teacher and mentor. He is also fluent in Spanish, Italian, German, French as I have heard him many times teach in these languages. I cannot download a pic from this computer but feel free to call the school at (424) 204.5433 for any further query about him."

"Great piano teacher for youth or adults

I have known Stephanie Quinn for over 14 years, during which she has been my piano teacher, mentor, and friend. Her accomplishments as a professional musician--on piano and violin--are numerous and impressive in and of themselves. What distinguishes Stephanie, however, from other performers / teachers is her unique combination of competence, passion, and disciplined approach to teaching. Her studio, which includes students of all ages and levels, is unmistakable proof of that. I am extremely grateful to Stephanie for starting me on a path towards love of music, and for helping me develop the ability to share it with others."

"I had a musical background growing up. I played the piano and the cello for years and sang in several choirs. I also took piano lessons for a number of years as a young adult - but, when I came to Barbara, I hadn't touched a musical instrument for at least 3 decades. For me, what makes Barbara extraordinary as a teacher is that, even with all the musical background I have, she brings out music in me that I never knew was there - and we laugh a lot too - you can't do better than that!"

"Phillip is a great teacher, kind, encouraging and experienced. He really knows how to make a student comfortable and loving music. He has been helping my younger daughter prepare piano competition online, starting from song selection to now perfect her piece. He is not only teaching her how to play the piece but also to understand the music theory associated with the piece, as well as the needed techniques and practice to master the piece correctly. My daughter enjoys very much learning from Phillip and gradually gains confidence in playing her piece. It is evident that Phillip enjoys teaching his students and knows how to guide them based on their levels. Thank you so much, Phillip!"
