Neil is a great piano teacher. I took many years of lessons growing up and then stopped playing the piano for 10 years. I picked it up a year ago learning new pieces and hit a "wall" where I wasn't able to improve myself, so I wanted to find a teacher that could help. Neil has been great - proactively pointing out areas where I tense up or could use a different fingering, suggesting helpful sight reading pieces, and even helping me find a better keyboard for my own practice at home. He has a lot of experience and good advice.
Bill
I have the highest praise for Neil. I am an adult, and I studied for nine years as a child and started studying again about ten years ago and have studied with several teachers during that time. I work on some difficult pieces, and Neil can always explain to me how to play the passages I am having trouble with and make it seem easy. Also, he can demonstrate for me how something should be played because he is such an excellent pianist. I am so happy I found Neil, and highly recommend him.

Reading music is essential to playing classical music and important I believe for every piano player no matter what genre you focus on. I adore Bach and Beethoven, as they do wonders for developing dexterity in both hands, while playing some of the most beautiful music ever written.

We will also praise a variety of scales, arpeggios etc., to strengthen the fingers and hands as well as improve dexterity.

About Lynn

I have been studying voice and piano and performing on stage in various capacities since I was a small child, acting professionally on stage, in films and TV for most of my adult life. I've been blessed to study with countless music luminaries in varying genres, from jazz and classical to rock n'

Lynn is a fantastic teacher! She effortlessly bridges genres and styles. She is personable, dedicated and inspiring. We are incredibly fortunate to have found her.
Chris
Lynn is stellar. Her background and training are substantial and impressive. She is prompt, courteous, calm and absolutely wonderful with our daughter (Age 9) who has challenges focusing and staying on task. Lynn is kind, but navigates the lessons confidently, fluidly and with a focused energy. She works with our daughter's playfulness, incorporates humor and positive, encouraging energy into every lesson. Our daughter has shown signs of great improvement with Lynn. Lynn assigns tasks and practicing points each week for our daughter to work on which are balanced and also bring in a component of improvisation, which is SO helpful for kids who have challenges with focusing. Lynn is awesome, highly recommend!
Jessica
Lynn is amazing!! Not only do my children love her as a person (they literally wait at the window on Wednesday nights) but she knows how to keep them engaged and interested in learning throughout their lessons. My son has learned to play actual songs in less than 10 lessons. Can't recommend her enough!

Piano lessons are "serious fun," balancing a supportive and encouraging environment with rigor and attention to detail throughout the learning process. I teach students according to how they would like to develop: beginning to advanced classical piano instruction, worship song and hymn lead sheet/chord chart reading, and new popular music styles.

Learning to play the piano, like learning any musical instrument, is rewarding, both in the short term and the long term. It is challenging, at times, both in a physically and an intellectually demanding way. Successful piano students must learn perseverance when faced with difficulties, discipline in practicing daily, and attention to detail in learning to read and interpret music. Most of all, the music matters most: loving and sharing the expression of beauty, power, nuance, complexity, and simplicity.

I recommend that all piano students listen. Listen on YouTube, go to live concerts, subscribe to Apple Music or YouTube Music. ...

Playing piano is fun! Music is a part of each of us and we gain so much from music lessons. Beginners of all ages are welcomed and encouraged! I try to match music choices and teaching materials to each student because as an experienced teacher I know that we each have our own likes and learning styles. I include reading and theory in our lessons. Often with games! Ready to give piano a try?

"My son warmed up to him very quickly - it said true they say kids know it cause me being the mother I felt the compassion and warmth Gabe had and so did my little one. We have been taking classes With someone else prior where I had to drive and go and this has been so much easier for us busy moms who can stay at home and continue the work while our child is learning- Gabe is so patient and has this calm demeanor and that is so natural that kids pick up and feel comfortable- to teach kids you have to have a certain personality and Gabe sure does. I trust him so much and feel comfortable while he is teaching my son and I’m in the office downstairs- I immediately felt comfortable with him teaching my son and being in my home which is not easy to feel with just anyone- he truly cares and I have never seen him look at his watch just to get out but rather leaving the child with enough to learn and practice and that alone comes from his quality of care and compassion that he takes pride in to make sure these kids learn. I think my son learned much quicker then the previous teacher I took him too. He is made for this and I would

"I came back to learning piano about a year ago after not playing for more than 20 years and didn't know what to expect in terms of how much I could realistically improve. Under Fawn's patient guidance, the change in my playing has been beyond anything I imagined possible. Fawn's approach to technique, practicing and performing is intuitive and very effective and has given me the confidence to tackle more and more challenging pieces believing that with her help I will get there eventually. I would highly recommend Fawn for anyone wanting to improve their playing, whatever age or ability."
