I teach from a variety of guitar methods and also help students learn and work out current and classic popular songs that I have written out for them or songs that the student may also suggest. I find that this approach inspires and motivates students while learning the
the fundamentals of the instrument.

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

Hello and welcome to my teaching world! I love teaching piano, as it has always been my strongest instrument. I start students as young as four or five (six to seven ideal).

Most of my students are, or become honor (AP) students. Learning music is especially helpful in learning math as music and math are based on patterns. Engineers and musicians have the same thing in common: They learn by recognizing patterns.

For young beginners, I use Alfred's Beginner course(s). For students 9+ years of age, I use John Thompson's Modern or Adult course(s) - students will get quicker results - with emphasis on classical technique after students become familiar with five-finger hand positions, intervals and dynamics.

Both courses utilize practice CDs or online practice tools/apps that contain pre-recorded accompaniments, so students feel as though they are playing along in a band, or orchestra - this is EXCELLENT for learning rhythm.

Fiona
My daughter has been under the wonderful care of Ms. Taylor for over 2 years now and she has learned and grown tremendously under her care. From not knowing how to read notes or any finger placements, to reading notes and switching things up ( different tempos) while playing the piano on her own.

Ms. Taylor pays attention to detail and is very easy going that makes it easy for my daughter to learn. She is very compassionate. She has also taught her breathing techniques along with voice training. She keeps her grounded and motivated. My daughter has a passion for music and is in the best possible hands. She is very flexible and accommodating!

Thank you so much for everything you do to help her flourish!!

We LOVE and APPRECIATE YOU!!

Hello! I am currently in my third year of majoring in violin performance at the Eastman School of Music and looking to teach a few students in Rochester. My past teaching experience includes instructing middle school and high school students, and I was also the student teacher for violin this past summer at the Chautauqua Institution. I've always enjoyed teaching and am accepting students of any level!

I love the acoustic guitar and have been playing on and off for 30 years. I look forward to getting you started on your way to being the life of the party by accompanying your own vocals, or having your friends and family sing along with your newly discovered talents. In our beginner lessons, we'll learn some easy ways to tune your guitar, some basic techniques, strumming, picking and chord progressions. (we may even throw in a little music theory, but don't be intimidated.)
