Private Piano Teacher

I've been teaching piano now for 15 years. My goal is for the student to learn to play by feel in addition to reading music. A standard lesson would consist of some playing in books and going over some music theory followed by playing by feel. This would include blues,jazz, and rock grooves. My approach is creative and customized to the prospective student. The student needs to enjoy learning the piano. A happy student is a successful one.

About Paul

I am a musician who has played in many bands. My primary instrument is piano and voice. I also play rhythm guitar. My current group is a "Who" tribute band, performing a complete history of the rock group, The Who. Please check out our website magicbustour.com I play by ear but also read music.

I've had 6 lessons with Paul so far and I could not be happier with my level of improvement, my understanding of piano fundamentals, and the enjoyment I get being in the lesson. Paul is an intelligent and passionate musician, and does an amazing job of contouring his lesson to the skill of his student. I couldn't recommend him more, especially for anyone who wants to rock out on the piano like I do.

I’m so glad to be taking lessons with Paul. He’s patient and creative in helping you find the notes and sing on key. He’s really good at challenging you just enough!

Private Piano Teacher

I am an experienced music teacher with 10+ years of professional career behind me.

With my piano lessons I can help people who are just starting out on piano. I focus on having a good technique, learning the basics of reading, some different scales and the correct fingering for it and getting used to different musical styles.

I try to make the fundamental exercises more fun rather than boring "exercises". I like to work on technique and theory in a song context not by itself. But after we go over these fundamentals you will be able to learn songs that you like in no time.

Christine is a fantastic piano teacher! She made me feel comfortable and at ease with what was my first ever exposure to the piano. I didn't feel nervous or anxious. She gave me a good explanation of the basics and clearly communicated what I needed to know so I could perform the required actions. She gave me excellent feedback, correction, and encouragement. I'm very pleased to have her as my piano instructor!
