Hello and welcome to my teaching world! I love teaching piano, as it has always been my strongest instrument. I start students as young as four or five (six to seven ideal).

Most of my students are, or become honor (AP) students. Learning music is especially helpful in learning math as music and math are based on patterns. Engineers and musicians have the same thing in common: They learn by recognizing patterns.

For young beginners, I use Alfred's Beginner course(s). For students 9+ years of age, I use John Thompson's Modern or Adult course(s) - students will get quicker results - with emphasis on classical technique after students become familiar with five-finger hand positions, intervals and dynamics.

Both courses utilize practice CDs or online practice tools/apps that contain pre-recorded accompaniments, so students feel as though they are playing along in a band, or orchestra - this is EXCELLENT for learning rhythm.

If a student leans more toward ...

Fantastic and patient with kids

My daughter has been under the wonderful care of Ms. Taylor for over 2 years now and she has learned and grown tremendously under her care. From not knowing how to read notes or any finger placements, to reading notes and switching things up ( different tempos) while playing the piano on her own.

Ms. Taylor pays attention to detail and is very easy going that makes it easy for my daughter to learn. She is very compassionate. She has also taught her breathing techniques along with voice training. She keeps her grounded and motivated. My daughter has a passion for music and is in the best possible hands. She is very flexible and accommodating!

Thank you so much for everything you do to help her flourish!!

We LOVE and APPRECIATE YOU!!

Beginning Piano students will be taught the basics in a fun but productive way. I will teach a strong foundation so a student can move forward with confidence. Lessons would be individualized to focus on areas that need the most guidance.

Students will learn the basics about rhythm, harmony, and melody and how they apply to piano. They will become fluent in the 12 basic keys to a degree where you can play simple songs in any of them.

My first lesson was great. Melissa started off very basic for me, as I requested, and answered all my questions and emails.

Melissa is patient, explains the concepts very well, she is hands on and makes the lessons very entertaining and dynamic. The way she selects the material for her students she finds the right balance between effective learning, fun and interesting. We are very fortunate to have her as a piano teacher.

I have been the principal bassist of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra since 2017. Upright bass is the only instrument that I perform on professionally but I've been playing piano since I was seven years old. My teaching is influenced by a lot of my experience as a professional upright bass player. I start off my young piano students in the Piano Adventures books and I start adults in the Bastian Piano for Adults. Both of these series give a solid foundation and present new concepts at a good pace. I also use materials by Bartok, Hanon, Czerny, and other composers to fit individual students' needs.

About Cory

Cory was an awesome & patient piano teacher for my 4 year old son. He did hands on training and gave him work to do on his own which helped tremendously! Thanks Cory!!!!
Skip F.
My experience with Cory has been excellent. He is a good teacher who knows how to keep me going and understands my goals. I have temporarily with- drawn from the program as the erratic nature of my life and travel requirements makes it difficult for me to schedule reliably. Also, some problems with the communication software have, at times, made the learning difficult. Please understand that my decision to stop is in no way a reflection on Cory or his teaching ability. I will be glad to re-connect with him when conditions permit.

Our first lesson was WONDERFUL. Keith was so patient with my son (6) and explained things in a way he understood. Plus, he was really engaging and made it easy to connect over video. We finished the lesson 15 minutes ago and my son hasn’t left the piano yet!

Tired of being frustrated at the piano? Tired of looking looking of looking at the sheet music and still not knowing how to play it? Or lacking the freedom to play any song you want just by ear and in any style, whether pop, jazz, or classical? Wish you could improvise freely in any style, compose and arrange for piano and other instruments?

These are the things I specialize in, I've spent years playing professionally and composing and even producing in all these styles, whether classical, jazz, or popular and contemporary music. I've come up with a unique teaching formula that works for all ages and skill levels, and have a lot of experience teaching dozens of students in a step by step proven method that works. I condense the information you need to know of music theory, technique, style etc. in a quick easy to learn fashion with the right exercises to go along with them. Complete musical freedom!

Whether you are looking for a great teacher to get your kids started playing ...

Daine has been teaching piano to my 8 yr old grandson for 2 months. He provides materials, a little homework and is always available for questions. He responded immediately to my inquiry and has always shown up on time. I would recommend him to anyone!
Nannette
Daine is an outstanding piano instructor. His friendly yet focused lessons have dramatically increased my son's interest in piano. His lessons have reinforced the basics while also covering music theory and expression. This has taken my son's performance ability and understanding of piano to the next level. Daine is also courteous, and always on time.
Tara
Daine is an excellent teacher that moves at a quick pace. In our family he teaches three different levels: An adult beginning learner, a self-taught teenager who needs to learn technique and music reading, and a 7 year old beginner. He adjusts the level of lesson to match each of us and does a great job. He is always on time and has a bunch of cool resources for us. He also explains "why" we are doing the things we're doing, which I find helpful.
