I've been teaching pianj/keyboard for 25+ years in Russia and my students successfully were engaged within seven years and have got the higher music education. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play Bach a Prelude and as time goes on you'll be able to "The Phantom of the Opera" A.Weber .
I specialize in classical style and pop music, typically use Alfred's books, and have the following tools available for your lessons: piano and keyboard. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I am waiting to meet you!

Piano Lessons in unique because I have the discipline of a highly educated musician, but the critical thinking skills of a modern day entrepreneur.

I am a regularly performing musician who has memorized hundreds of songs and pieces, making it easy to train any student on the fly. Teaching lessons is NOT just learning notes on the page, it is playing music by ear, understating how music works, and understanding how the student learns.

Very passionate about piano and able to convey ideas.. also very good at feeling out what student is seeking to achieve. Definitely recommend Paul if you are wanting to take playing piano as a serious endeavor
Arthur
My experience with this teacher was horrible. Paul has no patience for a child that might not pay attention as much as necessary. He has forgotten what it is to be a child or how to win over a child and make a lesson fun.
My child had one previous lesson with Paul. It is true that she was not following his directions and his frustration was quite obvious.
On my second visit I was appalled by Paul’s behavior. Again my child wouldn’t sit down on the bench correctly. Verbatim this what occurred next, I quote: “This is not going to work out. Get out of my house NOW, NOW!(Screaming, like I was going to prolong this). I have better things to do than waste my time with your daughter. I don’t want to take your money.

It is true that my daughter can be difficult when approached in an authoritarian manner. However, my daughter is not yet six and Paul brought my daughter to tears. Surely this behavior was at best inappropriate and says more about the person Paul is than about my daughter. A simple “ May I have word with you in private” would be a mature way to part company. Not throwing a 6 year out of your house because you are frustrated. I was horribly offended by his manner and attitude. No way to treat a 6 year old.

This man has no patience with young kids. I would stay away from this teacher unless your child has some experience with piano. Definitely not child friendly.
Normally I do not post reviews unless something extraordinary happens This is one of those: extraordinarily bad.
An apology is in order if this poor excuse for a “teacher” has any understanding of the unnecessary hurt he has caused.

"My daughter was very frustrated by her previous instructor in Suzuki Method, a lady who could barely play the instrument except by rote. Mr. Maloney came in and radically changed the situation. He reassured us, he encouraged us and he inspired us. In a short time, my daughter had recovered her passion for music and started to play with a lovely sound and more importantly, a real understanding of music as a form of expression. He is such a wonderful player and teaches with great enthusiasm and meaningful examples.

I am honoured to give Mr. Maloney my very highest recommendation."

"Getting right to the point, Ronnie is an amazing choice for an instructor. You can't go wrong with this guy. In depth review follows this statement.

Now we can get to why this is. I am a teacher but definitely not a music teacher. However no matter what you teach there must be a defined plan with structure. Ronnie takes this to heart and provides authentic instruction with passion. The amount of video and photo examples on his bio are unparalleled, it gave me confidence in choosing him. I got see his character and enthusiasm with instruction.

I've never played Harmonica before and Ronnie laid out the foundation that I needed, in easily digestible steps, to become a skilled player on a simple looking yet complex instrument. He has provided guidance on harps to purchase, reference materials, practice schedule and artists to check out. Even with this being an online course he has been extremely attentive to what I'm doing and makes sure that I get all the technical aspects correct. Ronnie checked for my understanding on the concepts and clarified anything I was not clear on. He has been beyond what I expected from an instructor and he has made himself available for questions even outside of my lesson time. It is rare to find an instructor in any field with this passion and customer service. Thank you."
