Piano shouldn't be boring, it shouldn't just be Bach, and it shouldn't be endless, pointless exercises.

Piano should be fun, interesting, and practical. Theory, scales, and exercises should be helpful, practical, and directly tied into pieces a student is learning, and each student should get the opportunity to work on pieces they're interested in, not just keep to standard repertoire only.

I tailor piano lessons to each student, their goals, and their musical tastes. While I use the Faber Piano Adventures curriculum, students are always welcome to bring in extra pieces to work on or ask for help finding something specific. Every student will learn the basics of sight reading, playing by ear, improvising, and harmonizing--then work more on whatever they are interested in.

As a professional pianist, I will teach practical skills that can actually earn my students money when they get advanced enough, such as reading lead sheets, playing with the timing of a piece, and accompanying

I teach virtually all styles, levels, and ages, and provide a relaxed, low-pressure lesson format.

Whether you're just starting out or are an advanced pianist, I can help you improve. I'm a tenured music professor with more than twenty years of teaching experience. My greatest strength as an educator is my empathy for my students and the ability to cater lessons to suit their unique needs and desires.

With more than 2,000 published compositions and arrangements, multiple recording project credits, and countless performances with professional musicians in a wide range of genres, I have the skills and experience to help you make the music you love.

Looking for conventional lessons?

Or maybe you want to learn to play by ear?

Whether you prefer J. S. Bach or Billy Joel, I've got you covered. Contact me today to get started!

About Benjamin

Talent is surprisingly common. What is uncommon is the willingness to develop this talent through adequate practice. Desire is the answer to this problem. As a teacher, I want to know what you want to learn. If I can build a lesson plan centered around your musical desires, you'll practice more,

Baylee
I took lessons when I moved to TN in 2nd grade till about 7th-8th grade. He was by far my favorite music instructor I had ever worked with. He was my teacher and he was my friend. He knew how to teach me in my learning styles and how to encourage me to practice. As a child, it’s easy to get frustrated with learning something new, and he understood that frustration and was always there to help. I would have talent shows and would want to play certain songs. He would find that music to teach me, and occasionally (if we couldn’t find the sheet music) he would play the song I wanted and write it down himself. I thought he was the most genius musician in the world and I loved my lessons with him.

I took lessons from Dr. Dockery while I was in college at TWU. He truly cares about his students inside an out of the lesson. I was always challenged to grow and own my piano skills but also never left without feeling encouraged! Five stars all the way from this student!
Savannah
I was fortunate enough to study piano with Dr. Ben Dockery during my time as an undergraduate music major. Dr. Dockery is not only an excellent musician, pianist, and arranger, but he is also a patient and thoughtful instructor who cares about his students. Dr. Dockery helped me to grow both musically and technically during the four years I studied with him, and he also taught me one of the most valuable lessons that I can pass along to my own students: how to practice. Understanding the benefits of slow, focused practice made a true difference in my growth as a pianist. Because of his encouragement, I chose to pursue graduate work in piano performance, and now as a Master’s student, I reflect on how much he helped to prepare me for this experience. I often find myself quoting Dr. Dockery to my own students, and I hope to have the opportunity to impact a student someday as he did for me.
Dr. Dockery is a wonderful teacher and mentor, and I would gladly recommend him to any student!

Brian is definitely one of the greatest teachers I've ever had. He is very knowledgeable and has helped me a lot with technique and musicianship. I never thought I could play the the 3rd movement of Beethoven's moonlight sonata; he changed my notion. Highly recommend! He does not disappoint!
Tiffany Chan
I'm from Hong Kong and had come to Mr Brian Lam's masterclass and private lesson in 2018&2019 when he came to HK. To me, Brian Lam is not only a piano teacher, but also a master, mentor and music friend. He knows a lot of music and his passion and teaching brings me to enjoy music more and inspire me a lot! He is very nice, professional and patient and always encourage me to develop my potential and improve my piano skills in both musically and technically. I also admire his piano skills a lot, he can play great and difficult pieces in a very beautiful way. I am always looking forward to seeing him and having lessons with him soon!
Tiffany
The reason I came to Mr. Brian: I wasn't making any progress under my previous teacher at a local music school. I'd say I absolutely have made the right decision to study with him! At first, my parents thought Mr. Brian's piano lessons are a bit expensive, but they let me try out the first few lessons. Worth the price! I have stayed with him for almost 4 years. He is so passionate with piano and he always tries to push me to my fullest potential, even when certain pieces seem impossible for me to tackle. We are working on a 45 min college audition program; I have never imagined I could make it this far (I hated piano when I was a kid).

Just wanted to update my review after taking a few lessons with Kristin. In addition to providing great yoga instruction, she's also been sharing these incredible explanations of how my body works (or isn't working right) that clearly come from a deep understanding of science and the structure of the human body. It is amazing to be able to both connect with the body and to understand how it works physiologically at the same time!

Kristin is incredibly skilled at Yoga - helping my form and deepening my understanding fo Yoga. I'm recommending her to everyone!
