I've been playing guitar and piano since I was little. I've been playing professionally since I was 16 and can cover many styles of music. Berklee College of Music graduate.
I really love teaching and try to incorporate new techniques and technologies into my lesson. It comes down to getting to know you and making the lessons relevant to you.

Mr. Tarantola has taught my three kids to play piano and to read music. Their confidence in their music abilities has grown over the years as they continue to learn. The skills they learned with Mr. Tarantola has helped them in school music, band and in learning new instruments such as drum set and clarinet. Mr. Tarantola has the ability and personality to teach all ages including new beginners such as I - who began lessons in my 40's. Highly recommend!

Hi,

I have a degree from Berklee College of Music in Film Scoring and Piano. Film Scores have been a passion of mine since I was about twelve years old and have collected numerous film soundtracks over the years. I am also knowledgeable in Classical, Pop and Rock, commercial sounding composition. I'll go over famous Classical/ Film composers, pop artists, rock music, and their music by reviewing Youtube videos and sheet music. Be prepared to have some music note paper, score paper, a piano or keyboard and let's have some fun!

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.

John is a committed and passionate instructor who is willing to go the extra mile for his students (and their parents). I approached John to help bring the spark and joy for Trumpet back for my 13 yo son and boy has he delivered! He is patient, supportive and understanding but at the same time creative, consistent and persistent to help my son continue to excel. He finds what is relevant so that the student remains interested and engaged. I am so pleased we have found him and would recommend him 100% to anyone looking for a music teacher.

I have been teaching clarinet and piano lessons since 2014. In my career, I have performed recitals at the State Conservatory of Uzbekistan as a clarinet and piano performer. As performer, I also played in chamber ensembles and wind orchestra as well as with different teams performing in weddings, private events, and restaurants. I accompanied wind instruments, such as flute, clarinet, oboe, and his piano students for studio recitals and festivals. I also accompanied choir during my study at the conservatory. While doing my Master's Degree at the University of Northern Iowa, I composed several pieces for piano and woodwind trio. I arranged pieces for piano, clarinet, chamber ensemble, and wind orchestra.

Thank you Amy. The lesson was absolutely wonderful! One thing though, as I was trying to take notes, the information coming at me started coming at me too fast. It was like a whirlwind came flying just over my head. But I did manage to catch much of it. Good stuff.

"My daughter has been taking Lipeng’s piano lessons for a couple of weeks. She feels that she learned useful techniques and it is now less frustrating when playing. I feel the difference is that every time when I ask my daughter to practice, she is readily to play. It is evident that she is growing interest in piano. She is starting to learn to appreciate the beauty of the music she is playing."

"Ahmad brought my playing to a new level in a very short period of time. I had been stuck and not making much progress with my improvisational skills for the better part of a year when I first started lessons with him. I was impressed by his ability to quickly analyze my playing and knowledge and suggest some focus areas. After working on various intervals, I began to feel a magnetic pull in my fingers when playing. The intervals enabled me to make the connection between the licks and lines in my head and the physical fret board on the fly during improvisational sessions.

Ahmad is extremely organized. He has exercises for every topic imaginable. His exercises are clearly written with specifics on how to effectively practice them, and they progress in an incremental and logical fashion. This level of organization allows you to get the most out of your time with Ahmad. He can quickly retrieve exercises for a topic, without having to stop and think, or waste time on transcription.

I leave every lesson with more than enough material to keep me busy. Ahmad has been very flexible working with me and changes that arise in my schedule. On top of all of this, Ahmad is a genuinely pleasant person to spend time with and I really look forward to our time together. For me, I was an intermediate player looking to get to the next step. But I'm confident that Ahmad could accelerate anyone's playing at any level."

I wish I could have continued but my schedule made it impossible.
