I decided to start learning piano as a new hobby and am very happy I found Jack. He has been very patient with me and is going at just the right pace. I cannot say enough good things. He is also great with my grandkids!
Elle
Jack is THE BEST. He is always super patient and kind and I am amazed by all of the awesome techniques and tips he shares to help me. I love taking lessons with Jack and I am really excited about my own progress under his guidance.

Jack is fantastic with working at YOUR pace. I had played piano years ago and wanted to get back into it. Jack was able to adapt exercises on the spot when he could see i was breezing through some things but struggling in other areas. Jack is also a very kind and understanding person - he was accommodating to my financial situation even before COVID. I would recommend Jack to anyone looking to start or brush up on piano.

Private Music Theory Teacher

Understanding Music Theory has many benefits. When performing music, understanding the theory behind a piece can help you to effectively improvise, make it easier to memorize and allow you to understand what is happening or about to happen.

It allows you to analyze compositions that you like and understand why they sound so cool. It could be that it is using a tried and true technique that has been around or "breaking the rules." In memorable composition, there is usually a surprise.

My area of specialty is commercial music which incorporates popular music and jazz.

The content of study would depend on what your current level of knowledge and what you want to accomplish.

"I have been taking lessons with Jimmy for 3 years and could not ask for a better teacher. He makes my interest grow and has a wealth of knowledge and the patience to share it. He challenges me regularly. I only wish I had found him sooner as previous instructors never had the flexibility or patience that Jimmy has.
Learning in such a relaxed environment has worked very well for me. My son has since started lessons with Jimmy as well and it has become a great experience for both of us."

I’m here to convince you that learning a little about how music works is one of the most important skills you can develop and should absolutely be part of your daily practice routine.

As you learn songs and work through your music books, do you memorize the notes? Or do you read along every time you play? In this post, music teacher Vanessa G. discusses the pros and cons to the approaches...   Imagine your teacher gives you a piece of music to study. What's your process?
