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!

My 5 year old takes classes with her. She is a very shy and anxious child. Ms Paniyeva has been very patient and accommodating. She can read and play in 5 months. I can’t believe her progress. I think we were very lucky to find her. My daughter calls her always Smiling.

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

In each piano lesson, we begin with the basics of note-reading, rhythms, and techniques. Then we put these things into practice using a variety of music styles throughout a series of books, as well as individual pieces determined by the teacher and the student according to the student's level, needs, and preferences.

For younger students I generally use a lot of the Faber Piano Adventures books, along with several of their supplemental materials. I am also well-versed in the Bastien Piano Basics books. For teen and adult students, I use the Bastien Adult or Alfreds Adult piano books, and usually try to include the Fundamentals of Piano Theory as well.

Every student that I teach is treated as an individual. I work with them on their particular set of weaknesses, whether it be their overall musicianship, physical approach (technique), or knowledge of theory. Most importantly, I help my students achieve their own particular set of goals in a low-pressure environment. While I always find suitable repertoire for each student, I am happy to have students bring in pieces that they wish to work on. Above all else, I treat each one of my students with great respect.

I was very happy to find Christopher! As an adult, it has been many years since I took regular lessons. Chris offered the right set of knowledge, approach and flexibility to meet my exact needs. I find him friendly and quite helpful. As with many things over time, Piano lessons "ain't what they used to be," and I'm quite pleased with the new approach.

I teach piano both as a starting to other instruments and as a goal in and of itself. My method is to teach as much as I can in the learning style of the student. I have taught from every available piano method book out there. The goal is not to get through each book as quick as we can. The goal is to become a student who enjoys making music. The student and I work as much as we can during the lesson time on the understanding of the songs, method, style, and theory of music. Therefore, if a someone does not have much time for practice during a week, as happens for time to time, they will still learn and progress.

My 2 girls started with Shae when they were 5 years old and both enjoyed their lessons. Shae is patience and good with kids. Even though we don't have the best schedule, the girls liked her so much I couldn't switch to a different teacher even though it could have saved me a few dollars too.

Shae is a great teacher, she is very patient, and my son enjoys his lessons. We have been with Shae for several years, and it has been fun watching my son's ability grow during that time.

"Great teacher! My son really enjoy taking lesson from Lana in the last year or so. He was with another teacher for a couple years but didn't quite gasp the concept of reading the notes. He was playing by memory which I thought it wasn't right for a beginner or at his level. We since than switch to Lana and noticed the difference when he practice and the techniques he put on during his lesson and recital is incredible to see as a mother. I'm very happy with the way she teaches my son and she shows a very positive feedback with compliments at the end of each lesson. I think that is very important as a teacher.

Since than, my older son have follow my younger son's foot step in taking lesson with Lana as well :-)"

She moves at the student’s pace, and keeps a good handle on the progression of the lesson, so that you get a good chunk of instruction/learning while not being overwhelmed. I’m a newbie at music instruction, and Sharon was wonderful in every aspect for someone starting like me. I’m sure she’d be just as fabulous for a more experienced piano player."
