As a graduate of Berklee College of Music, I hope to share my "expensive" knowledge of Music theory in a more approachable way. Music theory through composition and production techniques. "Huh?", you ask? No worries, I teach music theory to what inspires you, by creating and analyzing songs that you love. It's fun and helps you to learn more. Slow and steady is my motto but each student has his/her own pace and we will go through it together. You could learn the usual way which is diving straight into music theory or you could go into a less academic yet knowledgable and fun way. This approach is great for beginners of any age cause it helps you develop what you want to learn so that you don't forget.

As one of my students you will be encouraged to learn some songs by ear and be creative by making up their own pieces. You will definitely need to learn to read notes, as well.

Each lesson will have you playing what you practiced during the week. And each lesson will also have you learn something to take home to perfect.

But most of all, I would hope you would leave with a sense of well-being, confidence and encouragement in the wonderful experience of making music on the piano.

I love for my students to perform as much as possible. We play in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and recitals. If a student comes up with a performance venue, we will certainly try to do it.

About Sue

I have been teaching for years with all ages of students. Piano lessons will include learning to read notes, ear training, theory and technique, creating your own music and learning to play the piano with others. The curriculum varies with individual needs. My philosophy is a little laid back but

I can't say enough good things about Sue! She is knowledgeable, patient, receptive to new ideas, has a great sense of humor.... She teaches both children and adults in her home (and more recently, on-line). I've been taking lessons with her for about 6 months, and have made a great deal of progress, as well as learning songs and techniques outside of my original "comfort zone".

Thank you, Sue!
Jo
My daughter has enjoyed piano lessons with Sue so much! She was exactly what we needed in music teacher. She makes it entertaining and fun. She even put together a piano concert for all her students!

"If you’re a non-musician and you want to become a musician, and you want to do that while learning the mandolin, work with Andrew. I came to him with a limited musical background and no previous mandolin experience; he was able to assess whatever musical knowledge and literacy I had and develop it. He was holistic in his approach: we worked on theory, we worked on fundamentals, we worked on right and left hand stuff, and I was never bored or bogged down the way many adult learners can be.

I would say that within six months of weekly lessons with him I was working on sight reading music in two or three genres at moderate tempos, I was able to learn songs from listening, and I was honing my technique to bluegrass playing and going to bluegrass jams in New York. He was always attuned to my level and to what I was doing with my playing. He put a great deal of thought into lesson planning and chose to work on pieces that appealed to my individual taste, prepared me for the musical community I was breaking into, and generally kept my momentum up during my first year of mandolin playing and got me to a place I was really happy with. He was on the line when I upgraded my mandolin, because when you’re dropping a couple grand on something you call your sensei. And he was and is a great sensei.

One of my biggest musical hurdles, if not my biggest, is performance anxiety. Andrew has a great disposition for making people feel relaxed in a lesson setting; he’s an easygoing, sensitive and cool guy who can show up for you wherever you happen to be that week. He also has a really great dog named Ryder who liked to hang out during lessons.

I would 10/10 1,000% recommend Andrew. If he is not already your mandolin teacher, hire him and congratulate yourself! You are on your way to mandolin greatness."

"We would highly recommend Mr. Troy.

We were unsure of what kind of instructor Mr. Troy was when we initially signed up with him. While he appeared to be a very well educated musician and accomplished composer, we did not know if he would have a good chemistry to teach piano to my daughter. As it turns out, Mr. Troy is not only a talented pianist but also a good communicator. He responds to our questions and concerns very promptly. In our first lesson, Mr. Troy immediately discovered my daughter's recurring piano issues after giving her a diagnostic test. During each lesson, he explains the piano theories and points out what technical skills that my daughter will learn and need to practice during the following week. He does not just teach her how to play piano, but he challenges her mind and teaches her the correct mental approach to playing piano. We are very happy to have a great instructor like Mr. Troy."

"You gotta go to this guy.

I started taking lessons with Jason when I was only 9 years old. At age 13, I played my first show at a club in Baltimore. At 15, I played my first show at a club with my own band. At 18, I played at the Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago. None of these things would've been possible without Jason's guidance and teaching skill. He knew quickly what I wanted to do with guitar and put me on the road to doing it.

His experience is valuable in every aspect of playing guitar, really. Just a few months ago, I had an overuse injury in my arm from playing guitar. He just happened to have previously had the same injury himself, and his advice helped me overcome it in time for my tour in Chicago (disclaimer: he's not a doctor).

Do you need help with guitar maintenance? He can show you that. Wanna learn about songwriting? He does that, too. He does anything. Just let him know; he'll show you.

I plan on going to Jason for many more years."

She always starts with the technique and making sure I am able to sing the song. Then we work on stylizing the piece and the acting component. She has so many tips and tricks to get those high notes! I love working with Shelby and plan to continue doing so."

I hid in the altos for years and she helped me find the wider range I was seeking. She includes great visualizations in her lessons which helps a visual learner like me. I have the confidence to trust my breath and sing in ways I never thought possible. She is a wonderful teacher. Take lessons from her!"
