For younger students, I use the Albert Young Beginner lesson book and activity book. The lesson book teaches basic piano skills at a good pace for young beginners, and the activity book reiterates what the lesson book teaches, but in different fun ways. For older students, I use the Bastien series of Piano instruction for my piano lessons. I use the Lesson book for teaching basic playing skills, the Theory book for basic theory. In addition to this, I like to eventually include A Dozen A Day exercise books and Hannon finger exercises, scales, and arpeggios. I feel this method of teaching will lead to well-rounded, quick improvement!

I have taught piano since 2012. I prefer to take beginners, and I do especially well with younger students. I believe strongly in integrating music theory and ultimately moving students toward musical self-suffiency, rather than focusing exclusively on learning particular pieces.

About Ben

Hi, there! My name is Ben and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2012 and have taught students of all ages from 3 to adult. I have experience not just with teaching but also with writing, recording, and performing music in successful bands and on multiple instruments

Ben has been instructing my 2 kids (now aged 11 and 9) in-home for at least 5 years. We started off with piano for the first few years but then switched to a combination of piano and acoustic guitar (half a session dedicated to each instrument).

He is patient, kind, and highly knowledgeable. I clearly see the upward trajectory in my kids' musical capabilities. One of my kids can be difficult to deal with, especially when he is tired, but Ben would mold his approach to the lesson on the spot to keep my kid engaged (e.g., instead of continuing the lesson on the actual piano, he'd switch to a fun music-oriented game).
Lauren
I hadn't played a musical instrument since elementary school when I started Ukulele lessons with Ben. Ben started from the beginning, answered all my questions along the way, and built upon that information in each lesson. It wasn't in a didactic way, but in a way that was really customized to fit my Ukulele lesson goals. Ben's teaching style is very flexible also. I had some Ukulele lesson books I had been gifted and we worked from those. I didn't feel that I had to buy a bunch of additional equipment, books, etc.

I recommend Ben as a music teacher. He is understanding, encouraging, and inspirational. I am looking forward to continuing lessons with Ben and JC Instrumental.
Pam
Ben has been working with our daughter since January 2019, when she turned 6 1/2. He arrives at our home on time each week and he works with her at an age appropriate level. We appreciate that he recognizes the effort she puts into the weeks when she practices often and he gently makes her aware when she hasn't practiced enough. He always speaks with her in a kind way and with us in a collaborative manner. We all want her to enjoy her piano experience, and we are thankful to have found Ben just a few blocks away from our home.

Hi! I'm a young music teacher who loves sharing the joy of music! I have been playing the piano for 15 years. The piano is one of the most recognizable instruments, and is so much fun to play. My goal each lesson is for you to learn something, see a concept from a new perspective, and just have fun! I hope to be teaching you soon!

Kathryn is an amazing instructor. She is very encouraging and supportive of her students and she goes above and beyond to make sure that they understand the topic of each lesson. She works with her students to pick out pieces to learn that will fit their vocal range, as well as choosing pieces that they will enjoy. She makes a plan for each student based on their individual needs, and works with them to meet their goals. She is very knowledgeable and I would definitely recommend her as an instructor for vocal training!

Great drum teacher!

Adam is a very skilled drummer and a patient teacher. My son has been taking lessons for awhile now and his face still lights up in awe when Adam plays. My son came to Adam as a beginner and I have seen continual improvement after each lesson. I would highly recommend Adam to anyone looking for a drum teacher.

Adam is a wonderful guitar teacher!

Adam is a great at teacher! He is so patient with me and helps me to progress at my own pace without feeling like I am lagging behind. He also encourages me when I feel like I am not doing well and he helps me to hone in on specific skills that I need to practice further. Best of all, his explanations are clear and the goals he sets for me are attainable with practice outside of class. I highly recommend him.

"I had always wanted to learn how to play the piano. I wanted an instructor who was fun, loved playing and teaching, and patient. Randy is all of those things and more. I have learned so much about music and the piano in the four months I’ve been working with him. He makes me feel confident that I can learn to play almost anything! All I can say is I picked the right guy. I’m looking forward to many more lessons and with his help reaching some of the many musical goals I have set for myself."

"My son started taking lessons with Ms. H. at the age of 8. He had no prior piano experience, but showed a lot of interest in wanting to learn about it. He is doing absolutely amazing and has been a part of a piano festival and recitals. Ms. H. has been wonderful. She is patient, fun, and challenges him when she knows he can do better. She makes the whole experience enjoyable. He's very comfortable with her and enjoys his time at the lessons. He cannot wait to play what he just learned as soon as we return home from the lessons. He has learned so much in a short period of time, and he continues to flourish. I highly recommend Ms. H. for piano lessons at any age. She is a fabulous teacher!"

"I highly recommend Sharon as a piano instructor. She is very enthusiastic, encouraging and patient. Also her way of teaching is amazing. I am an adult beginner who had taken a few lessons with another instructor before. Though I did pick up some terminologies, I like the way Sharon goes back to basic and teach me the fundamentals without assuming me know it. These are essential for me to progress further."
