I teach general piano lessons since 2010.With every new student our mutual journey into the world of music begins from the very basic stage; we begin with discussing student's proper sitting position at the instrument,basic introduction sessions on the general buildup of the instrument, its keyboard layout, and proceed, gradually, to the notation symbols on the music staff introduction to the student. Through the diligent preliminary talk we will discuss various aspects of interest that my students have developed in relation to playing piano, so we could plan and design our future lessons according to an initial discussion. My job and responsibility will be to make an intelligent assessment of my students' natural abilities for the given subject of study, to create vigorous learning atmosphere during our meetings, and to give my students professional instructions to the best of my humble abilities, for the benefits of their musical , aesthetic, and personal development. I will ...

This was my first piano lesson in 50 years. It was everything I hoped it would be... intellectual, fun, relaxed... and it filled me with hope that I could finally make something out of a musical instrument I left in the dust so many years ago. Jimi is wonderful to talk with and work with. This was beyond my expectations.

I’m 80 years old and play sax in a Senior band. I signed up for several lessons with Jimi Z. to improve my tone and breathing. I think Jimi did a great job with me, and I recommend Jimi for sax lessons. Dan Ginsberg

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!

Piano:
A great instrument to learn if a basic and well laid out instrument suits you best. The notes are easy to find and with my method it will be easy to learn so you will playing songs in no time. I always start from the very beginning and only move on when the student feels confident about the lesson. Learning to play piano is a lot of fun and very rewarding. I will teach you the basics of finger technique, notes, music notation, reading music, rhythms, songs, theory, etc. Piano and all instruments will bring much joy to your life.

Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

Karen was great!

This teacher misrepresented her ability to teach the C system chromatic button accordion. I don't believe that she has ever played one. I asked her before purchasing a set of classes if she knew this instrument and was competent to teach it, and she said she was.

She didn't have one, so she could never demonstrate anything I asked about. She didn't know the key layout. She didn't know the conventions for numbering fingers. She didn't know the basic home key scale pattern.

I waited until I'd finished four classes with my new teacher before writing this so I'd have a good basis for comparison. He is immensely better at teaching this than she was. It further convinced me that she never should have represented herself as competent to teach this particular instrument.

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.

My educational philosophy is to focus on the cultivation of interest and the cultivation of artistic aesthetics. I'm passionate to share my knowledge of classical music from different period, knowing the history of the music you are playing is always a fascinating part of piano learning, it deepens the understanding of music and helps appreciating the music. My approach to piano technique is grounded in body awareness and psychological well being. My goal in teaching is to help the student rid the body and fingers of any extra tension, help my students to become their own coach. The significance is far more than just playing the piano, but getting a steady stream of fun and inspiration from creating art and appreciating art.

Tom will work to understand what your goals are and then will tailor his lessons so you accomplish them. As with all piano lessons, you get out of them what you put in (practice makes perfect!), but Tom will help you to see improvement almost immediately even if you do not have the most consistent home practice schedule.

Our oldest (12) will be auditioning for international competitions beginning this fall and our youngest (7) has been going through about 2 levels a year with perfect marks on the ABRSM. She’s fun, engaging, and has a great relationship with the students that make her family. We make sure to fly back stateside for at least one of her studio recitals per year and it’s well worth it.
