As with all of my classes I make Music Theory easy to understand and you will learn at your own pace! These lessons are especially great for students who are seeking to understand how Music Theory can be applied to their guitar playing!

Note: You should sign up for Music Theory lessons with me if you are seeking to learn your ENTIRE FRETBOARD, all the notes on the Fretboard, the theory behind “playing with numbers” and how to apply all of this to your guitar playing, sign up with me today and take your playing to the next level!

I've performed on and off Broadway as a pianist, and on television in many familiar shows. I've worked professionally as an arranger, vocal coach and orchestrator.

About John

My job is to get your child crazy about the piano. If you have to nag your child to play, something is wrong. The basics are, of course, important, but until you have gotten the child to accept and love the piano as an object of enjoyment, all that practicing will go nowhere. How do I do it?

John has been teaching my 6 year old daughter for 3 months now and not only has he done a tremendous job gauging her abilities and teaching her but he has made it so much fun she wants to play the piano all the time.
Janet S.
John's biggest strengths are his patience, understanding and seeming endless facility with music. I read music but not fast enough to allow me to play good pieces, so John translates everything into physical movements. This makes it very easy to play interesting music, which makes me want to play more. I think he has shown me how learn, how to refine things so they are satisfying. I highly recommend him as a teacher, for beginners or advanced.
Heather S.
My son is six years old and has been taking piano lessons with John for six months. John is a unique and engaging teacher. His extensive knowledge of music and skill at the keyboard were apparent from the beginning. He can easily demonstrate a multitude of songs and then teach them on the spot. My son is excited to play a "whole song," be it Sponge Bob or Beethoven. John's teach-by-numbers technique appeals to my son's love of numbers and patterns yet he is also quickly learning how to read sheet music. John really is skilled at disguising a lesson on technique or theory as a game. He is goofy while at the same time encouraging and supportive of my son. He keeps it light, fun, and skill appropriate. Since he comes to our home, I also appreciate John's focus on the lesson - he arrives and departs in a timely manner. I highly recommend John as a piano teacher.

"Michelle is a fantastic teacher! My daughter has been taking lessons with Michelle for 2 years during the summer months as a supplement to her regular lessons. Michelle has a way of making music fun and enjoyable so that my daughter doesn't get bored or burnt out. Her teaching style is an amazing mix of both fun and effective so that my daughter comes away from her summer lessons with new skills beyond my expectations. I highly recommend Michelle!"

"My daughter's lesson with Holly was amazing. My daughter started playing trumpet at the age of 6. I bought her a used trumpet and she basically taught herself how to read music and how to play. By the time she was in middle school, after several years of elementary school band class, where everyone learns an instrument, my daughter had grown bored of her trumpet. She was great at it, but there was no challenge and very little inspiration for her to play. When she met Holly for her lesson that all changed. She was able to talk with Holly and share with her many of her trumpet and band experiences. Holly was enthusiastic and positive as an instructor. She really was able to connect with my daughter(a teenager) and encourage her. My daughter left her lesson feeling very interested in trumpet again and wanting to explore a variety of music she could play on her trumpet. For the next few days she was listening to various trumpet players online and different music styles, at Holly's recommendation.
I can confidently recommend Holly as an instructor for any student who wishes to play trumpet. I believe she is the perfect instructor for my middle school daughter."

With my busy schedule he has given me flexibility and has allowed me to learn at my own pace. He is also very talented at adapting to your learning style and listening to what you'd like to get out of singing. This is honest feedback from personal experience working with Dan and I suggest giving him a try."

What is a Lute, and How is it Different From the Guitar?

As a guitar player, I rarely had to deal with the issue of explaining what my instrument was to people I met. Even non-musicians are generally familiar with the guitar and the many forms and shapes it takes. When I made the transition to playing the lute, however, this changed significantly, due in no small part to the odd-looking case that I have to carry the instrument around in. People will often ask me, “What is a lute?” In truth, the history of the lute is a long one and I often s …
