So far, I've loved all of my classes with Sergio. His teaching style with photography fits my needs perfectly.
Lucy
I like Sergio because he is very laid back and super funny. He fits incredibly well with my learning style and pace and I always enjoy our lessons. I was immediately able to pick up things I had previously struggled with upon taking his classes and have really enjoyed myself. Overall, I would absolutely recommend Sergio to anyone looking to start playing saxophone.

For young people and beginners I use the Alfreds piano books, they have great songs that students really like and they teach note reading gradually without a lot of tedious memorization. Young people and beginners are a specialty for me.
Advanced students can work on songs they choose and learn how to read chord charts, how to use music theory or how to improvise jazz if they like.

My daughter had a few lessons with John thus far but he’s gotten her motivated and enjoying playing the piano again.

My daughter wanted some exposure to the instrument so she could continue with it on the side as she has a primary instrument already. John did a great job or arming her with the requisite knowledge to understand how to play. I would recommend him.

I have been playing piano for 6 years. I start the student by teaching proper form, hand position. After the first lesson (this is mostly dependent on the age of the student and how long it takes to grasp the form) we learn our first scale. After that we talk a lot about this scale and how it works. We learn about intervals between notes. After this we learn timing and beats in music. And then we move onto reading sheet music. The student will learn the theory behind piano and will be able to play any song they want to after :)

I was raised in the Suzuki method, trained in it, and I believe in it. It is the most effective school of education for new musicians who want to learn reliably. I've been teaching it 9 years.

I can talk to you for days about the method, but I will sum it up as quickly as i can.

1: Immersion
2: Daily Practice
3: Listening
4: Strong relationship between student, teacher and parent.

If the student listens everyday, practices everyday, practices what i tell them, and is made to love the music, you will learn. I've taught hundreds of students this way and when all the conditions are met, all my students have had success.

Piano lessons are structured with a focus on what the student needs. We ensure a strong with a foundation of scales, note reading, and ear training, to give the student the versatility to go in any musical direction they like, and make them a well rounded musician. The books I usually begin in for piano will either be Suzuki book 1 for piano or "Adventures ...

The beginner piano lessons are designed to develop your mechanical abilities on the piano and increase your understanding of the piano keyboard. I will teach you the fundamentals of sight reading, technique, and music theory, as well as how to practice effectively,

I've given successfully online lessons via TakeLessons Classroom and if you are interested here is a list with some of the advantages:
1. Quality of the teacher: I believe it is better to have online lessons with an excellent teacher than it is to have in-person lessons with a mediocre teacher. TakeLessons Classroom gives students even more options to choose from when looking for a teacher since they are not restricted to their small local region.
2. Weekly Convenience: Students don’t have to travel 10 or 20 minutes to their teacher’s studio.
3. Convenience of Recording Lessons: While students always have the option to record their face-to-face lessons, that never happens (at least, in the history of my teaching).

About Denise

I hold a Master's in Voice Performance degree from University of New Orleans and Bachelor of Science degree in Voice Performance from State Music Academy, Sofia, Bulgaria. In 2001, I toured with International European Opera Company which performed numerous times in Denmark, France, Italy and USA.

Pianist Spotlight: How Ben Folds Brought the Piano Back to Pop

Ray Charles, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Stevie Wonder—so many names top the list of influential piano players in music history. But for a while there, as dance, metal, and grunge took center stage, piano was relegated to the sidelines. One artist who changed that, however, was Ben Folds. When he hit the scene with his band Ben Folds Five in the mid-90s, a new musical sound emerged—pop heavily infused with piano. Who is Ben Folds?
