Basically,meeting the student's need in the exploration of Music.The 3 important elements in any Musical example are rhythm, harmony and melody.These core elements are present irregardless of the style whether it be traditional, contemporary or Jazz.Whatever genre the student chooses ,these elements are fundamentally present.My aim is not to necessarily channel them to become professional musicians ie practicing scales and technical exercises daily but to introduce them to lets say ----what is a chord, what melodic line fits nicely over that chord, what's----the meter? Is it in 2 ,3 or 4.etc.I also encourage my students to attend concerts, performed by children their age.Music is first an aural tradition.Listening and seeing others performed excites the musical journey.

Gerry's the best! He was so great with both of our boys. His lessons fostered a love of music in them that will last them a lifetime. He kept the lessons fun while making sure that they were learning and growing as musicians.
Stan
I don’t know where to start raving about this magnificent person. Gerry Rollock has been a colleague of mine since 2003. Having worked with him for many years in a performance setting, Gerry is a consummate musician able to play in many styles. He worked with my organization Music Teachers Collaborative (2003-2020) as an in-home piano instructor. Gerry was always on time, traveling to each home in a safe manner arriving with a fresh perspective for each individual student. And they all liked him! His gentle teaching manner is perfect for all ages. Hire him for your son, daughter or yourself and you will be very happy that you did. The results will be evident in the way you will enjoy playing the piano.

Gerry is the best piano teacher! He’s been teaching my kids for years. He has so much patience and a good sense of humor and makes piano fun and lighthearted, I whole heartedly recommend Gerry for piano lessons!

Stephen's a great instructor both from a technical and personable perspective.

He's got a cornucopia of musical knowledge that's evident from how speaks to how he teaches. If you like any film score, chances are he knows how to play it.

Speaking as a beginner, I can say he's been very patient and knows a bunch of exercises and books to learn everything thing from theory to practical pieces to finger exercises.

He provides constructive guidance on what you're doing wrong, and I'm happy to see myself improve under his tutorage. (oh and if you're a sci-fi fan, you'll have a lot in common with him)

Steve is an excellent teacher! I always look forward to my classes. I am a student in high school, and he fully understands my need to balance my school work with piano, and he makes sure that I am able to comfortably commit to both aspects of my life. Steve makes sure that I stay on task and that I am progressing with my piano skills all while making the lessons fun and enjoyable.

I'm satisfied with the lessons I took, even though seven months of piano still not enough.

I learned a lot in seven months with Liana. I was pleased to have her, but I'm still slow. I think I need six months more in order to gain enough speed. Anyway, Liana is a good instructor to start with. She encourages and leaves you with no fear.

We had great experience with David. One of my kids learning drums and the second one - piano. Both of them don’t have any experience before and they do great progress during their learning for 3-4 months - bi weekly zoom lessons.

I build up technique and musicality, beginning with scales and instructional books which provide pieces of increasing difficulty. While this is a more traditionally classical method of learning, I also enjoy playing in other styles such as popular and anime music. Especially because of my personal interests, I am very open to teaching you the genres that you are interested in performing. ~

I have been a student of Michael’s for approximately 7 months. My only previous experience with violin had been one year in elementary school band class and 8 months with a private teacher. When my private teacher’s lesson schedule changed, I was introduced to Michael and was greatly impressed by his skill level and teaching style. I have learned so much more than I had expected in each lesson, like how to self-tune, use a metronome, shift, and various other techniques. Michael constantly offers feedback on how I can execute techniques better, and I feel that this helps me to learn more effectively. He is always challenging me by giving me harder pieces and scales. I have even been told by my high school orchestra conductor that I have improved so much and she is constantly surprised by how fast I am learning. I highly recommend having Michael as a teacher for anyone looking to learn how to play the violin.

Michael is very talented and he is a great instructor. He explains the techniques really well. Very professional and supportive. I highly recommend him!

"Ryan was the first instructor who made piano make sense. I'd tried three times before to get into piano and it just wasn't happening. Ryan took concepts and techniques that I'd notoriosly and historically struggled with and broke them down for me. Each lesson was completely personalized and if I had a particularly challenging week of practice, we would dive into the exercises and ideas even more deeply -- rather than just say "ok" and move on.

Ryan is a great instructor, explainer, and communicator -- very knowledgable, well-humored, and genuinely interested in his students' success. It was great to see someone who has taught for so long be so enthusiastic about my progress. His attitude and experience are what made the difference for me this time around.

If you're looking to get started on piano or develop your playing in any regard, Ryan can draw you a map to get there and guide you every step of the way. Go for it, you'll have a great time and honestly surprise yourself with how much you can learn and improve."
