All Ages and All Levels. Classically trained. Encourage students to incorporate favorite songs/genres of music be it rock, pop, jazz, etc. For all ages and levels, I prefer to incorporate music theory as part of the learning process. It allows the student to see the how and why, to not only feel music but also understand it. If your goal is primarily playing oriented, I will, of course, adjust my teaching style to fit your needs. Let's make beautiful music!

Jenny is on time always. The first lesson, she had the books ready and was very professional. I am very happy with her teaching abilities.

Jenny is wonderful. She is patient and understanding, and adjusts to the student's needs. I recommend her for anyone.
David H.
Excellent piano teacher for our 6 year old son. Jenny is patient and great overall with kids. I appreciate the incorporation of both theory and practice into the lessons Seven months in, we have seen significant progress and best of all, our son is showing initiative to play on his own.

I have been teaching piano for over twenty years. I specialize in classical and pop. I love teaching babies and young children but I teach all ages. Piano is the hardest instrument. I try to make every lesson fun while still providing structure and a little bit of strictness. I use the Mark Nevin, Schaum, and Little Mozart series. I have tons of music to share for students that need to branch out and don't know what to play. Piano is my passion. I love sharing my love for this instrument with others.

Learn while only playing songs you love! I will always keep an eye on technique - and I'm happy to help you learn to read, learn how to follow chord charts, play by ear, or all three - but I believe students should never look at it as homework. Piano has been a best friend since I started playing 40+ years ago and I love sharing it. So we only learn through your favorite songs. I've been teaching for 25 years, have performed with 8 Grammy winning acts, and have composed for much film, TV, and internet - from Spike Lee to MTV to major film studios. I was classically trained, accepted into conservatory while still in high school, and started playing in bands when I was 12 :) I also teach guitar, singing, and songwriting. I have taught junior high, high school, and college English and writing. I have taught special needs kids. I also work as a book author and screenwriter - but I love teaching and always enjoy having students. Pop, rock, reggae, R&B, classical - you name it, I can help! ...

About Scott

Learn to play by ONLY playing songs you love! I started playing classical piano at age 6. Piano lessons were a bit dry so, once I could, I started playing my favorite songs on my own, out of songbooks and by ear. 45 years later, piano has probably saved me a ton on therapy :) And, it's helped me m

Jordan was very helpful right from the start. He listened to me on where I am at and where I want to be. He showed me a few things that we will work towards and then helped me understand my instrument much better. Gave me some fun new things to practice before the next lesson. If you're looking for a lesson that is interactive and fun I recommend Jordan and the online thing is supper easy and handy. I don't think it could have gone any better. The lesson was 45 minutes and it felt like 10.
Dave
Jordan is excellent & very patient.
Max
Jordan is a fantastic teacher! He expertly and patiently guided my young son from essentially 0 to reading notes and playing them on the guitar in about half an hour. He is clearly an experienced musician who loves to teach. We are looking forward to the next lesson.

A practical fun approach to learning how to learn, play and practice. I teach students the fundamentals of music while learning how to play the piano and learn the music they love. I'm also willing to travel further than the 25 mile radius in Connecticut and New York.

I've been working with Brian for four months now and have made excellent progress on guitar. Brian quickly adjusted to my experience level and has done an outstanding job of removing long-standing bad habits and reinforcing the good ones. He has a fresh approach which ensures students don't get bored and, best of all, instills confidence and a good stage presence. I'm on my way to being a better guitar player but more importantly, a better musician. I recommend Brian without reservation.

Brian has been great , he patiently provides simple tangible explanations for both guitar play and music theory. He is building a solid foundation for my musical growth and more importantly supporting and enhancing my love of music. I give Brian my highest recommendation, he's a natural teacher

"Great teacher!

First of all, Dave is an incredibly gifted musician, but his talent for teaching is top-notch as well. His laid-back personality worked well to put me at ease, and he is very patient in his guidance and instruction. He covers a lot of territory, but he utilizes a building-block method of teaching that makes sense to me. Speaking solely from the perspective of an adult student, he does challenge you to stretch and to think, to search for patterns and logical sequences on the keyboard. This makes the learning feel more collaborative, as though I’m engaging in my own progress in ways beyond the practice time. I highly recommend him if you’re looking for quality keyboard time with a great instructor."

Why Are Piano Keys Arranged That Way?

When you look at the keys on a piano, a few things pop out right away. First, there are both white and black keys, and second, there is a distinct pattern that the keys on piano repeat. While most modern pianos contain 88 keys, you can find pianos with a shortened range, and even some that increase the number! But why, exactly, are the keys set up like that? We'll explore that in this article. Black and White Keys on Piano Pianos are arranged with white keys for the musical tones of A, B, C …
