If you want to learn how to begin playing the piano, I am you man. I focus on scales, selections, and cadences to help you learn the beginnings of piano playing. I can take you through simple four part melodies with pedals, playing from a lead sheet, and even a bit of transposition. A small amount of music theory will be involved in your lessons. Contact me to talk about your piano playing goals and to set up your first lesson.

Solid guy with diverse chops. I can learn a lot from his instruction.
Itati S.
I took 5 lessons with Ed, very great instructor. I learned a lot in those few lessons. He helped with with my pitch and with my accent that I had to prepare for an audition. With his help I was accepted into my high school’s A cappella group “Madrigals” and overall I would recommend. We made it work and tried to make the best out of the situation. Great experience:)
Michael Y.
My kids thoroughly enjoyed lessons with Ed (both guitar and piano). Lessons started with my 7yo and when his brother turned 4yo, he started as well.

I enjoy teaching beginners to advanced levels. I specialize in beginning learners and believe that the initial path of studying should be reinforced with a positive teaching style and the right technique for that individual student. There is not a 'cookie cutter" music book for any beginner. As a teacher I learn the style of each student that best suits there goals to move forward.

I have also observed the lessons and I am confident Ms. Esther knows what she is doing. We will definitely be staying on with her😊"

"Rose is my 2021 blessing! My granddaughter decided she wanted to play the violin. I bought her one and we looked for someone to teach her. After the first lesson I decided I too wanted to learn a musical instrument and decided that the piano would fit me. I asked about lessons and they introduced me to Rose. What a difference one person can make in your life. After only three lessons I am playing songs, with cords. I am amazed at myself and it’s all because Rose, she is a wonder teacher. I enjoy her teaching me and I learn so much in each lesson. She is wonderful. Thank you Rose for your patience with an older student. I look forward to each lesson and can not wait to see what I can play next."
