Private Piano Teacher

Students will learn basic piano skills such as hand placement, note reading, note values, pedal use, major and minor scales, expressions, etudes, pieces, memory work, music history, performance techniques, and most of all to have fun learning the piano. I will expect students to have a minimum 67 note keyboard with sustain pedal, or a good piano to use for personal practice time. Each student should spend at least 20-30 minutes daily to start. They must purchase the recommended books.

About Paul

I have my bachelors degree in sacred music, my masters degree in music performance, and my doctorate in worship studies. I am an experienced music teacher with great interpersonal skills and enjoy creating a fun and meaningful learning environment for all ages of students. I teach music theory conc

Wow! Wow! Wow! This was truly money and time well spent. I went into this lesson with no expectations, rather just with the hope of connecting well with a piano instructor that was not only well versed but could ease me into being a student. Paul is a rare treasure. He exceeded all my hopes of what I hoped to gain from my lessons. I would highly recommend him for any piano student. If you're looking to be challenged, and learn any genre of music,, don't wait...book your lessons with Paul. Thank you Paul. I'm looking forward to growing as a student.

Paul has been very patient and wonderful with my 6 year old son who has just started lessons.

I am trained in Russian technique using relaxation movements that prevent painful cramps in wrist and forearm. I have been teaching primarily children from age 4 in music schools and homes since 1987. I like to motivate them by letting them choose their favorites, like songs from Disney movies or some other popular songs. I am very patient and encouraging. I am happy when I see love for music growing in hearts of students.

I attended six years at State Conservatory and graduated with Magister degree from Comenius University in former Czechoslovakia. I performed during my college years with a chamber vocal-instrumental ensemble. I started teaching piano and music theory in 1987 at a music school and later I was givin

Practical, efficient, patient, supportive. Matthew is able to assess quickly and keep things progressing forward while still highlighting fundamentals. Great for adults. Gentle for those on the lower end of confidence with an instrument.
Kevin C.
Matt taught me for a 3 month period and helped me drastically with learning how to improvise guitar solos. I can't thank Matt enough for his help in helping me with a rather unorthodox time to start getting lessons. Each week he told me to bring 3 songs with a guitar solo I would like to learn in different genres and each week we broke down the solos for me to practice and gather their techniques. Thank you so much Matt!

My 9 year old son had his first session yesterday, and he loved it. Matthew is great, responsive and especially patient! My son is looking forward to having more sessions!

First, speaking from personal experience, it is imperative that every student finds the right piano teacher who recognizes the importance of establishing and developing the correct technical piano skills to lay the foundation for successful musicianship growth.
Second, at face value, piano playing – and music in general – enriches every student’s life culturally, spiritually, and emotionally. Beyond that, piano playing is an opportunity for students to express themselves creatively. They develop valuable life skills that extend beyond the music such as confidence, focus, responsibility, dedication, commitment, self-control, discipline, and fine motor skills.
Therefore, my goal is to inspire my students in leading by example; my passion for music fuels my teaching. I truly enjoy watching students witness and listen to their growth with time and dedicated efforts.
Accordingly, a commitment to consistency and passion inspires all that I do and I hope to pass this onto my piano students. ...

"Bijan Z. - A Knowledgeable, Patient Teacher

I have played guitar in a classic rock band for many years. I always wanted to learn how to play the piano, but never allocated the time to do so. When I finally decided to take piano lessons, I wanted to find a teacher who could start me off as a beginning student; someone who could teach me to sight read piano music and to help me develop my left & right hand piano skills and teach me proper technique from the get-go. Bijan Z. has done an excellent job of teaching me, and getting me sight reading & playing with both hands, right away. He is very knowledgeable and patient, and his positive attitude has encouraged me to practice regularly which has helped to keep me focused on my piano goals."
