Philip is an excellent teacher and gave me very heloful pointers on my technique. I am an advanced player and have performed semi-professionally several times but hadn't learned proper technique in the past.

I plan to continue with him regularly to improve my technique and skill level.
Kennadi S.
Philip was so friendly and patient, and made my 7 year old very comfortable with her first lesson. He really knew how to speak on her level and his instruction was very positive and motivating. My daughter left the lesson very excited to start practicing what he showed her, and we can't wait till the next lesson!
Yeo S.
Very helpful person to work with, understanding of my student's transportation difficulties and great about rescheduling. The girl likes him and is learning.
Good choice

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.
Shiri
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!

"Voice Lessons

I graduated college with a degree in Vocal Performance. After a few months without voice lessons, for letting my voice recover from my senior recital I decided to step back into it. Ben has an ability to clearly communicate proper singing technique, while also explaining how the body works- so that the science behind the technique is understood. I would definitely recommend this teacher to a friend, and I will continue to see him regularly for lessons."

One Easy Trick to Convert Guitar Chords to Ukulele Chords | TakeLessons

Are you trying to learn a song on ukulele but can only find guitar chords? I’ve played guitar all my life and have a collection of Gibson and Epiphone Les Pauls. For my birthday a few years ago, my girlfriend bought me an electric Les Paul-style ukulele. I’d never played a uke before -- ever. I had to go online to even find out how to tune the thing! Undaunted, I discovered the standard tuning is from the top string G – C – E – A. The G string is thinner than the C string, sort …
