Bryan B.

Shelton, CT

About Bryan

I have enjoyed music as long as I can remember! Whether listening, playing, writing, or teaching…I find great pleasure in the creative outlet that music provides. At the age of five I began studying classical piano, in elementary school I studied trumpet, in middle school I picked up the guitar and bass, and in high school these experiences collided as I began to write and arrange for various ensembles. Playing in a rock band all through high school and college, I've had opportunity to record two albums and to tour regionally in the North East. Receiving a Bachelor of Music in Music Education at Gordon College in Wenham, MA, I studied classical guitar with David Patterson for four years while I gained much experience in various areas of classroom education (band, choir, theory, ...

Thank you for teaching me how to play the guitar. I learned how to play a song and it was really fun because I had no experience at all.

Thank you so much for teaching me different things on the guitar. I loved learning that Greenday song in just one lesson. I enjoyed playing with you. It was really fun and a worth while experience for me.

Thank you for teaching me how to play the guitar. It is a great skill that I now have and will cherish for the rest of my life. I have many great memories at your studio. All the laughs and the great jams and good times. I'm no "Mel Bay" but I can read music which is an extremely useful skill you taught me. I play in a guitar club at school and I am one of the best because I know my scales, keys and the right way to use them. I will never stop playing because you showed me how much fun it is. I am so grateful for that. Stay in touch. Overall just THANK YOU!

John A.

New Milford, CT

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? I think it's easier to learn the piano if you are having fun, and that means playing music that you like. You can always choose what you will play in lessons, and lessons are designed around your preferences, and move at a pace comfortable to you. The basics are still taught, but at a pace that your child finds comfortable. The result of this is that I will get your child to go the piano and play by themselves with no nagging. I have had the complete classical conservatory experience, yet

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.

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.

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.

Barry S.

Danbury, CT

About Barry

Hi! My name is Barry and I have been teaching for over 10 years in the Fairfield County, CT area. I have had success teaching all ages, styles and abilities, from the most gifted to the physically impaired. I grew up listening to a tremendously wide range of music, and have studied classical flute, rock, jazz and classical guitar, and even the japanese shakuhachi, with some of the great minds of the instruments. I graduated high honors from Queens College with a Masters' in composition, and have had works performed by major acts in the contemporary classical scene. In jazz, I have shared the stage and recording studio with the likes of Marc Ribot and William Parker; I have quite a bit of experience as a performer that I bring to my teaching. My passion for music is addictive; I have ...

Very good experience.

Barry has great patience....I enjoy my lessons, but I don't always practice as much as I should so I'm not as good at this as I might otherwise be. He makes the learning experience very worthwhile. It makes me want to stick with it. He definitely gets an A+!!

My son has been taking lessons with Jeff for a year now and can honestly say he is one of the best teachers he has had. He not only teaches my son to play songs, but also teaches him how to read notes, the theory and history of music. My son enjoys and looks forward to meeting with Jeff for his lessons every week. And I extremely happy and thrilled to have found him.

I've been taking lessons with Jeff for over 6 years. He is the most knowledgeable instructor I've ever met and is fluent all music styles with an in depth understanding of music theory. Our lessons are always fun, entertaining and educational. We always mix music theory with any songs we are trying to figure out and Jeff always wants you to leave with having learned something new, not just how to play a song.
I really value the time I spent in Jeff's lessons and would recommend him to anyone interested in pursuing guitar lessons.

Jeff is a great guitar teacher! He is very knowledgeable and I really enjoy my lessons. I have been playing guitar for more than 30 years and I have tried different teachers. Until I met Jeff, I could not find a teacher that could assess my knowledge and add to it. Jeff is the only guitar teacher that was able to understand where I was at and provide insights and improvements right away. Other teachers all focused on what they wanted to teach, not what I needed to learn. If you are an experience guitar player and want to improve, Jeff is the guy. My lessons cover multiple styles but mostly rock, blues, and jazz.

Jeff always has something new for me that is interesting & fun. I'm looking forward to my next lesson.

5 Excellent Sight Reading Exercises for Singers
Unless you're a career-chorister, the concept of sight reading music is probably going to at best make you slightly nervous, and at worst paralyze you with fright. However, at some point, probably when you join a choir or perhaps go to an audition, you're going to have to face that hurdle. Sight reading comes easier to some singers than others, but it's not some mythical task akin to retrieving a golden fleece; sight-reading, even for the more able, is a learned skill, and there are several sig
