Benjamin L.

I provide a base knowledge of theory, beginning with the circle of fifths, going into chord structures, and filling in any gaps the student might have in his or her foundation on the subject.

About Benjamin

In my years of teaching, I have developed an individual approach with each student, young or old, according to different needs and learning styles. I believe it is never too early or too late to begin learning, and it is my hope that music making through this instrument will be as enjoyable and pas

Through my individualized approach, we will reach your goals. As a professional piano teacher for 20+ years, I encourage my students to feel comfortable enough to comment or ask questions during lessons, practice, and even develop a love and knowledge of music that will last a lifetime! I want the ineffable joy of playing and learning to play piano to be the reason my students attend lessons!
Proper technique is paramount, so ALL students are taught the correct technique / hand position regardless of age/ level; poor habits are difficult to break!
Each student gets a Lesson Book and a Music Journal. The journal is where I clearly document the week’s assignments (practice) and add tips and/ or specific techniques. Although I’m classically trained, I encourage students to play what they love!

I hold an annual Student Recital every June.

(NYSSMA prep offer all levels.)

*It is highly recommended that you have or plan to purchase a keyboard or piano on which to practice.

I am an undergraduate student at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor studying piano performance and philosophy, with a strong interest in piano pedagogy of all levels. In pursuing these two degrees, I believe in a well-rounded musical education that includes story-telling, connecting music to relevant history and literature, and developing an emotive connection to music beyond just the technical in ways that are fun and engaging, especially in the beginning stages of learning.

That being said, I also emphasize the importance of having a solid foundation that allows for the capability to progress further. With teaching technique to beginners, I focus on fun exercises and activities that are easy for both the students and parents to understand and practice at home. Additionally, I believe that music theory is an essential building block to understanding how to read music effectively, so I begin every lesson with a short music theory lesson on basic harmony exercises that teach ...

Ellen is a skilled and knowledgeable teacher!
Iva
Ellen is very thorough in her teaching method, while being super encouraging and patient! She incorporates elements of music theory, technique, and musicality naturally throughout the lesson. On top of that, I also like her ability to customize her teaching approach to help me accomplish my goals!
Bridget
Ellen is great at teaching both my daughter and myself. Very friendly, personable and understands the piano and classical repertoire at a high level. She’s really helped me with my fundamentals and music theory. My daughter (who is much better than I) mainly studies classical music with her and I love to hear her progress. Ellen is warm and accommodating and I’d recommend her to anyone!

Piano is inherently fun. Maybe thats why they call it "playing" the piano. I will show you the funnest and most interesting way to learn exactly what you want to learn. Ive been masting the instrument for the last 15 years, and I was classically trained by a concert pianist for 8. I understand A LOT about piano injuries, so you wont get injured while working with me. If you can imagine it, I can teach it.

About Joshua

I was classically trained by a concert pianist for 8 years and then I developed a repetitive stress injury while I was taking my grade 9 RCM. I spent the next couple of years talking to specialists and doing my own research. For a while I thought I would have to give up the piano forever. But after

"It's been 3/4 year since we've been with her, and she is absolutely awesome! She totally earned my daughter's respect. Meeting a right teacher is so important because it took some time to correct the bad habit she aquired and continued that her previous teacher let go. Ms. Kan is absolutely one of the best teacher we had so far!"

"Ahmad is an excellent guitar teacher. I have been taking lessons from Ahmad at his place in for several months now and I'm continually impressed with Ahmad and very pleased with my progress on the guitar.

Ahmad has a relaxed and friendly attitude, but it's clear that he's exceptionally good at his trade. He has years of experience and teaching materials on hand, and I enjoy that Ahmad customizes what he teaches to each student's skill level and goals. He has developed a very effective teaching method that works well for me. I've had plenty of music education previously in my life and Ahmad quickly recognized that we could move quickly over the basics of reading music, rhythm notation, etc. and he's always prepared with an exercise or two for me to take home and practice to expand my skills further.

I found Ahmad via his web site and called him and he was very professional and courteous leading up to our first appointment. He's got his teaching down to a science and Ahmad is very efficient with his administrative matters. I'm grateful for this because it leaves a lot more time for the guitar lesson itself.

Ahmad charges a reasonable fee for his service and I'm looking forward to learning from Ahmad for a long time to come."

"I thought trying to learn to play the guitar at the age of 35 with no musical background, with kids and a full time job was a daunting task. That was until I met John. I have had 30 minute lessons with John for the past year and a half. There was a steep learning curve for me in the beginning, but John remained very patient and encouraging. His knowledge of music and his ability to explain and teach in a way that I could understand is second to none! I can now play a couple dozen songs and have a great foundation of skills to play many many more! I recommend John to anyone of all ages who wish to learn how to play the guitar."
