I teach rock keyboard with a focus on fun. I've spent many, many hours playing songs from the Beatles, Spoon, Radiohead, Sufjan Stevens, Bon Iver and many more. I received my piano proficiency from Knox College where I majored in music.

My beginning students always start with a song that they love. As soon as those songs are internalized the application of scales will become a necessity, but will never take precedent over rhythm and feel.

Are you ready to start your adventure into the world of piano?

I use the Faber Piank adventure books and Suzuki books. I adjust to the student's needs and I have students try different styles of music and also help them with solos they want to learn and familiar music like Mario Brothers, movie music, and popular music. I teach through Suzuki Piano Book 6. They also learn classical music, rag time, jazz, and other styles. Music should be fun and that is my goal for their lessons and to share my joy of music with my students. Lessons combine various musical activities to keep the student stimulated and focused. Students also learn scales, note reading, rhythm and music theory.

I'm the gramma of Chloe (the student)who is 12 yrs old and taking Viola lessons from Jill over Zoom for home school. And I have to say as I was listening in the background I was thinking, Wow! It's as if they're old friends already! She has a very reassuring and friendly personality. And Chloe already learned something in that first lesson when Jill was trying to assess Chloe's abilities. I'm sure you'll immediately like her teaching abilities as much as we do.
Renee M.
Jill is just amazing! She breaks things down for me in session to help me develop my skills in a manner that helps the information just sick. She is always so patient and has such a great sense of humor.

My daughter has been learning from Jill to play violin for more than five years and she has improved dramatically over that time. She also takes piano lessons with Jill which has fed her musical curiosity. Jill is patient, positive, and an expert in her craft. Great teacher!!!

Linda is very dedicated teacher. I felt that she really listened to my voice and quickly charted a path forward to develop my technique, musicality, and most importantly a self awareness of pitch in my body.
Mark V
I've been learning piano with Linda for a few weeks now and I feel I have a greater understanding for music theory already! She has an immense passion for music and easily translates it into her lessons.
She Is very patient and will work at your pace; a trait I did not find in my previous teachers. I absolutely recommend you at least sign up for her free consultation - you have nothing lose!
Sara
Linda is a great voice teacher who is very kind and engaging. I have learned a lot from her about how to use my voice, technique, and am improving every week as a singer. Our lessons are fun and I feel respected as a non-binary student. Linda creates a warm and welcoming space for everyone to feel comfortable as they learn about their voice.

Private Piano Teacher

I am a personable piano teacher, who is adept at making conservatory-style piano study accessible to the broader public. I'm more than happy to take on beginners or more advanced students, and have a wholistic approach to piano learning, including a study of music theory, sight-reading, and musicianship/musicality. As a pianist who has performed recitals much of my life, is studying for his graduate degree in piano at the Juilliard School of Music, and has taught for many years both privately and collegiately, I have experience and knowledge to help take your piano and performance skills to the next level, in preparation for your own recital, competition, ABRSM examination, college audition, and more.

Hope to meet you soon and begin your piano adventure together!

Music Education: The Benefits of Music on the Brain | TakeLessons

What’s more human than music? From the beginning of human history, our ancestors have been organizing sound into meaningful melodies and rhythms. The lines between language and music are often blurred, as many of the same parts of our brain are used to process both phenomena. Even as babies, our cooing and babbling often have a rhythmic quality as we try to imitate our parents. On top of that, nothing soothes a restless child like a mother’s song!
