Tom is an excellent teacher. He works great with my daughter. He is very talented and understands music. I highly recommend Tom.

Tom is a super nice guy with a great positive attitude and teaching style to match. He has lots of experience both playing and instructing. Two thumbs up!
Anya
Tom was absolutely fantastic. He seemed to be genuinely interested in my progress and just as excited as I was about me picking up the piano again - over 20 years since I’d last had lessons - which was an excellent motivator. I may have gone home and practices for a few hours. I look forward to continuing my lessons with him.

Laura
Ezra is currently teaching my six year old son and I on the piano. He is extremely knowledgeable about all facets of the piano (eg, history, theory, fundamentals, artistry, technique, etc.). I have played piano in the past, but he is expanding the depths of my understanding of it. Ezra is able to be patient with my son, while still holding him to a certain expectation. His love and appreciation of music is apparent. I would highly recommend him.
Robin
Ezra has been an excellent instructor for my daughter over the past few years. She has grown from a fledgling beginner to a confident young player, gaining skill and confidence as well as an appreciation for music. Ezra balances encouragement with high expectations that help her to improve. I would highly recommend lessons with Ezra to anyone looking to gain proficiency and joy in playing the piano!
Doreen
Ezra has challenged my 13-year-old son over the last 2 years! We are so pleased with the progress our son has made with a variety of piano pieces - classical as well as "popular." He has kept our son actively playing and progressing impressively with his piano skills! He communicates with parents frequently, and he connects and understands how to tap into a student's potential! We have been impressed with his teachings! Highly recommend him!

Ryan is amazing. He worked with my 8yo son both in person and online after the pandemic started... he was the ONLY teacher of any kind that could keep my attention-challenged kid engaged the whole time. I wish I could post a video of my son playing a year ago compared to now... amazing. Ryan was also fantastic at choosing music, and baking in music theory and "drills" so that they felt exciting and interesting to a kid that young. Hands down, a phenomenal teacher.

New material I've never encountered before in lessons with other instructors. Definitely challenging!

Online Piano Teacher

Hi, I am a working jazz pianist and recent graduate from the prestigious Eastman School of Music. I have a background in jazz and classical music and I specialize in jazz music, pop music, and gospel music. I teach beginner to advanced piano and music theory to accompany your piano skills as well.

One of the big problems in learning piano is that the songs you want to play, the songs on the radio or pop songs aren’t taught. More specifically, the skills you need to play pop or jazz or to compose aren’t taught. I personally love helping to bridge the gap between the traditional training in piano fundamentals - which we cover and solidify- with the theory and skills needed to compose and to play jazz and pop.

I especially love helping pianists wanting to explore different styles and become more interdisciplinary.

You may know me from Reacttothek a youtube channel on where I analyze kpop!

"Great teacher for multiple instruments

This instructor has a solid foundation in music theory which can help students of all skill levels and instrument choice...including voice. I have already benefited from her expertise on both piano and voice as instruments, as well as general music concepts like voice leading, use of scale, tonal variation and dynamic. Very easy to understand and work with. I have no reservations about recommending this instructor."
