Enjoy your mind! You have already written dozens of songs in your head, from stressful commute jams to parodic covers of your favorite dad rock. Take some of your natural style and apply it immediately to foundations for a beautiful 12 track piece, using tools available on phone and tablet to sketch and hammer out full arrangements in an afternoon. Looking forward to all the new pieces!!!

Great first day!
Jim
I recently started taking lessons with Kenny to try to learn some basic lead guitar in a one on one setting. I've been very impressed with his preparation, taking the time to tailor the lesson to my level of play and the music I am interested in playing. He also is very encouraging and is interested in my learning and progress, even going beyond the one hour lesson time to ensure that I have the tools necessary to continue to work at home.

Jim Castleton
Eric Ferrer teaching style is very clear/simple/ and intuitive. He really shows you there’s simplicity in learning anything. I thought the piano was a stride i always wanted to take on. Yet with Eric the process in learning how to use both hands was so simple that I was very surprised.

"Nikita is definitely a talented teacher. My daughter has had three other violin teachers and he is the best so far. Not only does he do a good job of teaching the notes, but he incorporates history and teaches his students how to play with passion. He is kind and patient and I would highly recommend him. Sadly, he is a bit on the expensive side."

"I decided to write an updated review after roughly a year of lessons. I feel fortunate to have connected with Lena as she has exactly the balance of skills I needed for my musical goals. Having an instructor that has performed live, that understands the realities of being on a stage, and can still give you all of the detailed work needed to improve vocals, songwriting, instrumentation... I really don't think you can go wrong here. You don't have to play live to get the benefit, but finding someone who can guide you through both music and performance was not an easy search. 5/5 rating from me."

3 Piano Hand Position Exercises for Beginners

One of the keys to successful piano playing is proper hand placement. Below, piano teacher Ryan C. shares three fun exercises beginners can do to improve their piano hand position... When trying to teach beginner students the proper piano hand position, I’ve often found that telling them to “move this finger in such and such a way” is a fairly challenging task. This is especially true if they haven’t developed finger independence through other means. It very quickly becomes n …
