Piano was my first instrument, and the best instrument for all beginners. I teach everything from the Suzuki method to Elton John to Art Tatum to Herbie Hancock

About Benjamin
I grew up in Glenside moved to Pittsburgh for school and came back because I love it here...I've been playing for 17 years and have a smorgasbord of influences from Zeppelin to the Beatles to Phish to Radiohead to the dirty projectors to Jay Z to Kurt Rosenwinkel & John Scofield. I have been composing and working with original bands for some 11 years and play regularly in the city and up and down the east coast. I have also been teaching for the past 11 years all over the Philadelphia area. i teach from a method I derived myself from years of learning both in and out of school. I think teaching music is both aural as well as visual and encourage students to listen to music a lot. most of all i feel that music is fun and the students should enjoy learning so i incorporate their favorite artists and favorite songs into our studies. for seri
ous students I love theory and love sharing what I've discovered over the years.

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm a very laid back guy but I take my playing seriously. music is my life and there's nothing I enjoy sharing and expressing more. I learned to love playing guitar when I was 12 from the coolest guitar teacher ever. he had a vibe that i gravitated toward and encouraged me in just the right ways to get me believing in myself. I try to encourage my students the same way. music should be fun above all and sculpt my lessons to each students individual needs so that they are better equipped to succeed.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect them to provide guitar/bass/piano

*** Specialties ***
Jazz, Rock, Blues, Classic, Pop

Piano is a wonderful instrument. I am glad you came to me for instruction and will do my best to get you playing in no time! My training is in classical. I went to Berklee College of Music and came back playing jazz. I perform in two bands currently.
I acknowledge how unique each student is and their differences in learning which is why I tailor lessons to meet their needs and in which they, you, may progress the best. I am not a fan of the cookie cutter methods for learning piano!

About Nicholas
I've been teaching piano privately for about 5 years now. I love teaching piano to others and help develop a love of music. My approach is flexible and not of the cookie cutter variety meaning that I will try different methods to see what works for example, some students like to have a list of goals written down and others don't like that. A little about my musical background. At age 5 my mother forced me to take piano lessons, soon one year became two and so on until I reached my teens I started to love music. In my early teens I started taking piano seriously and began studying under a Russian conservatory teacher until graduating high school and studying at Berklee College of Music for a few years. Now I am in two bands, teach privately! I am looking to expand my number of students. If you have any questions about myself or are i
nterested in lessons please feel free to contact me.

Mr. Nick has been such a great find for us! He has taken my daughter from not having any piano experience to the point where she is able to even play some classical music pieces. He has been extremely accommodating with our schedule/ her schedule, as it becomes quite busy at times and difficult in trying to get our weekly lessons in.

About Pete A.

Morrisville, PA
View Full Profile

I offer piano lessons to students of all ages at any skill level.

For beginning students, we focus on fundamental techniques, introductory concepts such as scales and triads, and learning to read music. Together, we'll map out a curriculum based on what you want to be able to do and what we need to focus on to get there. Again, beginners of any age are welcome. I've educated children as young as 3 years old and also taught a 65 year old student who was a total beginner.

Advanced areas of study include jazz and classical performance and improvisation in any style. Students can elect to include any amount of additional topics into their lesson curriculum, such as music theory, ear training, songwriting, etc.

About Pete
My name is Pete. I've been playing guitar for over 15 years. In 2011 I graduated from the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston with a degree in Professional Music. There, I spent several semesters studying with Tomo Fujita (former teacher of John Mayer and Eric Krasno). I've also studied with legendary guitarist Pat Metheny and Jack Pezanelli. Stevie Ray Vaughan, Wes Montgomery, and Jimi Hendrix are responsible for inspiring me to play guitar and I specialize in teaching blues and jazz guitar, bass, and piano. I firmly believe that every serious musician should study ear training and music theory and I incorporate these areas in my lessons as long as the student wants to study this way. I've performed with a bunch of great artists in the Boston and Philadelphia area.
In 2011, I successfully obtained my master
's degree in Jazz Studies from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. The master's program was an intense submersion in music performance that shaped me into the musician that I am today. I was lucky to study with Don Glanden, Mike Kennedy, and Kevin Hanson.
I am also well versed in computer recording software and DAWs. I teach students how to use software programs such as Logic and Reason as well as notation software like Sibelius and Finale. With some basic training in these programs, I can teach a student how to effectively record and produce professional quality recordings so that a student can write, record, and produce their own music.

*** Lesson Details ***
Because I've studied with some legendary teachers who have taught some legendary students (like John Mayer), I'm able to pass on to my students the same knowledge that these incredible teachers passed on to me. I guarantee that I will be unlike any guitar teacher that you've had before. Along with instrumental training, I offer extensive lessons in music theory and ear training. My family is full of educators and I've experienced the teacher-student relationship from a young age. I am fully committed to developing lesson plans based on the route that a student wants to take, whether it's just learning the basics and playing along to your favorite songs or engaging in serious study and preparing for college auditions. I am available to teach at any location within the Philadelphia area.

*** Stylistic Focus ***
I specialize in jazz and blues. At Berklee, I was able to take instrumental labs that spent an entire semester focusing on the playing style of certain guitarists. I've taken the Wes Montgomery lab, the Pat Martino lab, the Jimi Hendrix lab, the John Scofield lab, and the Stevie Ray Vaughan lab.

Philadelphia, PA

Learn to read, write and perform on the piano. Play simplified versions of your favorite songs while making your way through Alfred's basic piano library. Using software, I create recordings of my students exercises; students experience an enjoyable way to practice and develop their skills playing along with recordings. These recordings are made and adjusted specifically for each learner. The software allows me to tailor a practice session specifically for each student.

About Michael
Michael C. was eleven years old when he began to play the electric bass guitar. He decided to get an electric bass because it was the one instrument needed to start a band among his friends. In addition to playing the electric bass, Michael enjoyed time practicing on the guitar and piano in high school. Transferring the knowledge and finger technique to the guitar came easy because of the similarities between guitar and the bass. And growing up with an upright piano in the house always lead to tinkering and eventually became a proficiency after college. In 1996 Michael enrolled at the the Philadelphia University of the Arts. He was awarded a presidential merit scholarship and a university grant based on his entrance audition. During his studies Michael was recruited for a student ensemble also know as Metagroove. During this time Michael
had shared stages with guitarist John Scofield, Singer Ike Willis (Frank Zappa Band), Medeski Martin and Wood and The Disco Biscuits among countless others.

C. has completed a Master of Arts in music education as well as Bachelor of Music in bass performance. Michael is qualified to teach on bass, upright bass, guitar, drums, piano, voice and a rare instrument called steel pan (steel drum) among others. Michael performs as a freelance musician. He can be found performing regularly at private parties and events around the greater Philadelphia area. He has performed playing most styles and genres of music. Among these styles are Pop, R & B, Blues, Hip Hop, Jazz, Calypso, Flamenco, Latin, Pop, Musical Theater and Rock & Roll.

C. is a trained professional and prefers to cater his lessons to the individual need of each student. He believes that each student is unique and will encounter challenges in their own manner. Michael likes to supplement his lessons using musical interests of the student. C. has been known to arrange popular pieces for recital performances for his students. Some of the pieces he has arranged for his students include Something in the Way She Moves (Beetles), Long distance Run Around (The Who), Iron Man (Black Sabbath), That' €™s What Makes You Beautiful (One Direction), Hall of Fame (The Script) among many more. Michael encourages his students to use the music they love to challenge their ability and cognitive processes. Michael has the experience and training required to inspire and motivate you to become successful not only in music but in your daily endeavors.

*** Lesson Details ***
Michael has over twelve years experience teaching music and chooses to cater his lessons to the goals of his clients. He does not follow a set curriculum because different students tend to have different goals and expectations.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Logic Pro X, Reason, Fast Track pro audio, Double Bass, Piano, Rhodes Electric Piano, Acoustic guitar, Electric Guitar, Flute, Sax, Clarinet, trumpet, Electric basses, Steel Pans (drums), etc.

Audio recordings of each lesson are free of charge and available upon request. C. is capable of creating demos and audio recordings as well as audio production of original material.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Laptop, Guitars, PA system, Basses, Metronome, Method Books, etc.

*** Specialties ***
Steel Pan lessons are available. Access to a steel pan(drum) is a requirement for this specialty.

Are you looking for a great tutor? I'm the one you've been looking for.

I've had 3 years of tutoring experience in the following subjects:

* Math (from elementary math to algebra)
* Piano (from basic to more advanced)
* Guitar (from theory to more advanced)

I've had favorable reviews from my former clients, and I'll have competitive low rates as well. What are you waiting for?

I am a beginner, but because of Larry's different method of teaching music theory, it was easy for me to understand the fundamentals of music scales and consequently the origin of the chords and how they are formed. Larry goes the extra mile to make sure that you capture and understand the concepts.
Thank you!

All students learn differently so I focus on catering each lesson to the student's goals. I want the student to have fun, feel comfortable, and also be productive in our lessons. Students can expect to learn the foundations of piano including scales and key signatures, while also learning new songs that they want to be able to play. Ultimately, my goal is to have students develop their love for music.

About Sophie
Sophie has been teaching piano lessons both privately and in a group setting since the summer of 2009. She is available to teach you either online, or at your home.

Sophie received her Bachelor of Music degree in Classical Composition from the Manhattan School of Music in 2012, with a minor in Piano. Sophie is currently pursuing a career as a singer-songwriter.

Learning how to play piano can be intimidating, but it can open all sorts of musical doors, like being able to write your own songs, play your favorite tunes, and jam with your friends! I have more than 5 years of experience teaching both children and adults, and I emphasize tailoring lessons to the individual pianist's interests and skills. I incorporate music theory to build a solid musical foundation. If you are interested in learning pop, jazz, or classical piano from a patient, fun and flexible teacher, let's get in contact!

About Elliott
I'm a professional pianist and composer. I recently graduated from Swarthmore College with a BA in Music. Beyond that, my musical education has included the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, as well as participation in festivals in the US, China, Austria, and Germany.

I teach in a laid-back and goal-oriented fashion; by making small steps every lesson towards a larger goal, students see big-picture improvements and gain confidence in their musical abilities. I customize every student's lesson plan to their interests. Whether you vibe with Chopin, Monk, or Star Wars, we will work together to produce exciting and effective progress.

I teach piano students of all ages and abilities. I have experience teaching to those on the autism spectrum, as well as other learning and development differences and disabilities.
