Sam is great with my 10 year old daughter. He is easy going and makes the flute lessons fun and my daughter enjoys her weekly hour lesson. We let Sam know what our goals were and he has created a plan accordingly.

With 20+ years of teaching, I have worked with students with all levels of piano playing experience and helped them improve their performance and musicianship. I hold both Bachelor's and Master's Degree in Music Education and a Doctorate in Educational Leadership. I have specialized in online instruction for the last five years, working with students from all over the world including China, Kenya, Trinidad and Tobago, and Venezuela.
My instructional focus is centered on providing a firm musical foundation upon which students can explore various performance styles. Additionally, students develop sight-reading and improvisational skill sets through study of music theory and ear training.

I never knew you could take piano lessons online! Dr. B made it so easy to learn. He is a great teacher.
Joshua
My teenage son wanted to take music lessons to have another activity to add to his college applications. We knew Dr. B. previously and know he is a good teacher. My son has greatly enjoyed studying with him and said he wants to continue playing piano for fun when he goes to college.
Marcie
I had never studied online before and thought it would be weird for piano. It was not weird, it was amazing. Dr. B. uses several cameras so I can see his face and his hands on the keyboard. It is just like being there in person.

In addition to learning sight-reading skills, students will also develop ear training abilities by learning to identify specific pitches/tones, chords, scales, intervals, rhythms and melodies aurally. Learning this skill set will assist students with learning new music quicker and more efficiently. Certain drills and exercises during lessons will be implemented.

He makes sure I understand why I need to do certain things such as rudiments and learning to read notes. I couldn't have asked for a better teacher. He's always full of energy and ready to teach me so I can go far in drumming. If your looking for a fun cool teacher full of energy who loves teaching the art of drumming Mr. Rufus is your guy!
