Students of all ages in a personal relaxed atmosphere.
Customized to each student. If the student has not previously taken lessons I use Piano Adventures as the basic course guide. I have found it the most productive and enjoyable for my students. I uses a minimum of the Lesson and Theory book for my younger students with either the basic course or Accelerated course depending on their age and maturity. Adults begin with the All In one adult book. I add the other books that accompany each level based on the particular students needs and interests. I believe that a good grounding in Theory is essential as a student who becomes proficient in sight reading, no matter how well he/she plays by ear, will find that the doors for lifetime musical fulfillment with be much wider. However, with a student who has already had some lessons I will be happy to continue with any method that the student is currently using.
I also believe in supplementing the Piano course with the student's favorite ...

Kathy came to my home for my lesson. She has a very pleasant personality and it is very easy to follow her instructions. She kept the pace up, yet did not overload me. It's been a number of years since I have played and she did an excellent job on getting me back on the keys. I am looking forward to our next lesson.

Private Piano Teacher

As my piano student, you will learn so much! I do not work from traditional "cookie cutter" methods; each lesson is customized to take advantage of your own unique interests and abilities. Even if you are just starting out, you will quickly move beyond basic note reading to mastering popular sheet music by your favorite artists in your favorite genres. You will also have the opportunity to explore vocal accompaniment, improvisation, and/or playing the real piano parts along with recordings of your favorite songs. I hold a B.M. degree from Berklee College of Music and I have been teaching piano and performing throughout southern New England for more than three decades. I look forward to helping you achieve your musical goals and dreams on the piano!

I have just started guitar lessons with Stan and the lessons are going very well. It's exciting to be learning note reading which is something I have always wanted to do. Stan is thorough and clear in his instructions and I look forward to each lesson. I feel lucky to have Stan as my teacher.
Samuel K.
Stan is very knowledgeable about singing, and he teaches more than just voice lessons. It seems like he looks for the best in you as an artist, and try to take it to another level. I'm a new student of his, and it's been great so far. Looking forward to the weekly lessons.

Stan is obviously both knowledgeable and talented but he is also a very good teacher and will tailor your lessons not only to your ability but also to your own personal goals

1st lesson went great! Ms. Depauw is knowledgeable with music theory, and techniques that I am using to help me re-learn sharps, this includes practicing scales (groan). I look forward to working with Ms. Depauw to help me improve my playing, and since I play for my Church, I know they will appreciate the lessons. LOL

Ever get "in the zone" when you're playing piano? Your fingers glide effortlessly across the keys and you feel like the music is a gentle breeze that blows through you. Suddenly, you hit a sticky key and the moment crumbles around you. Sticky piano keys can be a real pain in the butt, but with the right piano care and maintenance they can be prevented. Keys become stuck for a variety of reasons, such as changes in humidity, dirty keys, and even foreign objects lodged between the keys. …
