I have been playing piano over 15 years and have been teaching for 6. From classical, jazz, pop, blues, or funk, I've studied it and can teach it to you!

About Joshua
Hi! I'm Josh, a passionate music educator in Boston, MA. I have taught over 1000 lessons over the past three years to piano, voice, and theory students of all ages. From preparing for rock-vocal style auditions at Berklee College of Music to helping re-discovering the fun of classical piano lessons, there is nothing I enjoy more than working with students on achieving their goals. As a gigging musician and a lifetime student myself, I know what it takes to improve, master, and most importantly ENJOY your time at your instrument. Looking forward to helping you reach all your music goals!

About me:
I eat/breathe/sleep music. From writing and conducting my first A Capella piece in high school to playing in bands that have toured around the world, music is my passion and my life! I value nothing more than finding that passion in others an
d working together to turn musical fantasies into realities.

From grade school to high school I took rigorous classical piano lessons. In 2006-07 I attended two summer programs at Berklee College of Music where I studied jazz/rock performance, and continued to study jazz piano at Washington University.

At Boston University, I studied classical music composition/theory, and was accepted to for a dual degree in Music Composition, Psychology, but decided to pursue music as a minor in order to allow more time for gigging. Since relocating to Boston, I have performed 250+ shows in various ensembles around the greater Boston area.

*** Lesson Details ***
As your private instructor, I am here to give you the most rewarding, interesting, and enjoyable lessons in the UNIVERSE. My lessons are are catered to your specific goals and where you are at, beginner to advance, 5-1000 years old. I am here to get you to where you want to go, whether that's taking up a new hobby or becoming a virtuoso. Together, we will do it!

In our lessons we will work on:

- Your favorite songs, any style
- Writing your own music
- How to learn music by ear
- How to read music notation and chord sheets.
- How to record/produce yourself
- really, seriously, ANYTHING YOU WANT!

I know what it's like to have a teacher that is uninspiring, or to be told that a certain kind of music is the "right kind to learn," when all you want to do is jam out to your favorite songs on the radio. I've been there. That's not what I'm about. I'll teach you how to play whatever it is you want to learn, whether that's the complete works of Bach or the latest One Direction song. Let's do it.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Digital Piano, Synthesizer, Digital Audio Workstation, Recording Equipment.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Piano and voice students must provide piano/keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
My experience is primarily with pop/rock/jazz/classical music, but we can do any genre/style you'd like!

Billerica, MA

All students are required to learn the basics in piano, such as,
the lines, spaces in both clefs, time signatures, note values.
Once the students have mastered the above, they can go on to learn
major and minor scales along with music pieces.
Students play songs that are in the John Thompson book and also
plays some supplementary songs.

About Jeanne
I graduated from Berklee College of Music with a B.M. (Bachelor of Music in Applied Piano(Performance Degree). I also attended Eastern Nazarene College, where I received a Massachusetts state certificate to teach.
I've taught classroom music in public schools in Templeton, Boston and Somerville, Massachusetts, as well as Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I also have experience teaching private piano in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
I have taught private piano to a student in Athol, Massachusetts who continued on to Berklee College of Music, where he graduated.
I am a singer/songwriter/keyboardist who has 2 albums out, appeared on Comedy Central, MTV, on ABC National Television, and "The Jimmy Kimmel Live Show." I was on National Public Radio(NPR), on the BBC in London, England and my song "In Canada", which is covered by another mu
sic group "The Suspects" is featured in a film, "Montana Amazon" starring Haley Joel Osmond, Alison Brie and Olympia Dukakis.

*** Lesson Details ***
I generally use the Schirmer and Thompson books for piano lessons. I don't consider myself strict but I do expect students to practice at least an hour a day.
3-6 months I do expect them to be able to start playing the piano and to know their notes and their locations.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The studio is in a music room in the home with an upright piano w seating available.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can go out and buy the books

*** Specialties ***
Jazz, experimental, rock and semi classical

I've been teaching piano lessons for nine years, and over that time have taught more than 200 students, from ages 4 to adults. I love to see each student find their own passion for music - and I look forward to doing the same for you! While developing classical technique and music reading, within a few months you'll be playing popular songs of your own choosing! With thirty years of piano playing experience, I believe music should be a joy to play at any level.

About Kelly
Hi, I'm Kelly and I love teaching students to love music! I've been teaching private piano students for more than ten years, and have taught more than 200 kids and adults. My goal is to help my students explore their own personal gift of music - because we each have one! Whether your dream is to become a concert pianist, a pop music pro or play the Stars Wars theme song, I'll coach you to get there! Along the way, we'll have lots of fun learning through music that you get to choose and come to love. I look forward to meeting you!

Profile_139332_pi_me
Bellingham, MA

View Full Profile

Lessons include basic note reading through advanced music theory and piano technique. 1st lesson will be an evaluation of skills and knowledge to determine level and curriculum.

About Janet
Music is every person's birthright. It's a way of knowing, a way of being. Music is multi-cultural. Music learning will open up pathways in your brain that will make it easier to learn other subjects. It provides a way of expressing yourself and an outlet for your joy and pain.

What aspects of music would you like to learn? I have taught piano and music theory for 25 years and Music Together classes for families with young children for 15 years. Currently singing A cappella, 4 part harmony with Women of Note chorus and All 4 WoN quartet. Presently studying advanced music theory and arranging as a candidate of Harmony Inc.'s contest judging program.

I have many years of experience teaching children and adults of all skill levels and abilities. Students with autism, attention deficit disorder, sensory issues and other learning d
ifferences are welcome and treated with patience, kindness and respect. I have experience with this population and have cultivated many resources and relationships with experts that guide me in teaching individuals with special needs. Every child in my program will be taught as an individual with his/her own unique learning style. Developmentally appropriate techniques will be used along with teaching strategies that cater to each child's personality and learning temperament.

Teenagers are busy people who juggle so many responsibilities. In addition to teaching their lessons and helping them to grow musically, I will provide them with practice strategies that will fit into their hectic schedules.

I also enjoy teaching adults of every skill level. There is no rush, no stress. Just the pride and excitement of learning something new. So if learning to play piano or sing has always been on your bucket list, let's tackle it together and make it happen!

Janet loves music, loves teaching, and loves people. You will not find a more dedicated and compassionate teacher of the arts. In the 14 years that I have known Janet, music, teaching, and family has been her priority. Her skills continuously grow as she has explored music in many different settings such as early childhood music, piano accompaniment, and choir singing.

I decided to turn back to the piano in mid life and could not have done it without Tim. I reached out to Tim based on recommendations and quickly found him to be a fabulous teacher, with all the patience required to excel at instruction. I very much appreciate his insights and low key approach to our lessons. Our weekly lessons were an inspiration to push forward and accelerate my own learning. I highly recommend Tim for anyone interested in excelling in piano.

I started studying piano with Tim once a week in February 2015. I had not studied piano for 50 years and now I am a senior. I am thrilled that I returned to the piano after so many years. I have achieved a lot with him over the last 3 1/2 years. This is due to Tim’s excellent pedagogical techniques in piano study and his great patience. His explanations are extremely clear. Tim makes simplified versions of great pieces for me to work on, thus giving me even more motivation.

I was a professor for 43 years and I am very familiar with the skills that a teacher should have in any discipline. Tim has the really good skills that a piano teacher needs. I recommend him very highly.

My son took piano lesson with Tim for several years, because of a rave recommdation we got about him. My son had taken lessons previously with a teacher at his school, and I observed my son improving much more quickly through his lessons with Tim. Tim has a gentle teaching style, which combines effectively with his skills, proficiency, experience, interest in his students, and his obvious love of music. He was open and welcoming to any musical interest my son had, including different genres of music and even composing his own tunes! I recommend Tim enthusiastically and without any reservation.

Hi everyone, I hope this message finds you well! I am Junling and am a professional pianist working at Boston Conservatory at Berklee. I have been play piano for 20+ years and have a Masters degree in Piano Performance. I love performance, but I am more passionate with teaching piano.
I am experienced with teaching piano in all ages and levels. My goal is to become a better teacher by having a chance to teach students with different interests and tastes in music like Classical, Jazz, Pop, or Broadway and to help students to approach their goal in music.
I always believe that creating a good bond with my students is the most important aspect of teaching. Ever since I had my experience with the teacher that changed my life, I have always not only had a love for playing piano but also a love for teaching. I have tried my absolute best to replicate her formula to share the wonderful experience I had with my current students, and it's something I plan on doing for the rest of my life.

To find the strength and temporary weakness on every students is the key of helping them to get close to their goals. I always gives good advices during lessons and also tailors the lessons based on the need of the students.

About Pedro
Well, I'm Pedro, I grew up in a country known for amazing coffee, yet, its music, although underrated, is way cooler than the taste of it.

If you're like me and like to explore new genres and crave for new information, I'll definitely surprise you.

You see, Colombia is divided by great mountains, deserts, rivers and jungles, it has built several fissures between towns and cities, making it diverse and colorful, just like my career in music. Since there isn't anything static about Colombia, I had played a vast amount of genres, including: Jazz, R&B, pop, salsa (tropical music in general), colombian folk music, as a producer made trap, hip hop and even reggaeton beats.

I've been playing the piano for around 10 years, also played electric bass as a kid, learned to play a little bit of drums here in Boston many years ago and I'm a
lso a music producer (Logic X). I specialize in music theory, I've studied from Bach to Schoenberg and modern music theory, you know, jazz can get very tricky.

Anyways, I know you just want to know how good of a teacher I am, I've been teaching piano and music theory for 4+ years, not gonna lie, I have an ability to explain complex things into simple and digestible information. If you got questions I'll answer anything you want to know and if I don't know the answer, I'll try to get it ASAP.

I hope we get to learn together, see you soon.
