“I pick the best songs!” That’s what all my students tell me. I have 30 years experience and provide in person as well as online lessons. Students look forward to their lessons because they like the songs they are playing!

To teach piano effectively you must follow the path that fits the student's personality. I teach a "structured" as well as "free form" program of sight reading, theory, harmony, and just about every style of music, from Classical to Pop. You will achieve immediate results as well as have fun learning and being creative.

If you want to learn how to write your own music I'll show you how. I have solo recordings available through my site, as well as iTunes, Amazon. My latest recording is with Grammy Award winning producer, Will Ackerman, founder of Windham Hill Records.

Whether you prefer J. S. Bach or Billy Joel, I've got you covered. Contact me today to get started!

About Benjamin

Talent is surprisingly common. What is uncommon is the willingness to develop this talent through adequate practice. Desire is the answer to this problem. As a teacher, I want to know what you want to learn. If I can build a lesson plan centered around your musical desires, you'll practice more,

I took lessons when I moved to TN in 2nd grade till about 7th-8th grade. He was by far my favorite music instructor I had ever worked with. He was my teacher and he was my friend. He knew how to teach me in my learning styles and how to encourage me to practice. As a child, it’s easy to get frustrated with learning something new, and he understood that frustration and was always there to help. I would have talent shows and would want to play certain songs. He would find that music to teach me, and occasionally (if we couldn’t find the sheet music) he would play the song I wanted and write it down himself. I thought he was the most genius musician in the world and I loved my lessons with him.

I took lessons from Dr. Dockery while I was in college at TWU. He truly cares about his students inside an out of the lesson. I was always challenged to grow and own my piano skills but also never left without feeling encouraged! Five stars all the way from this student!
Savannah
I was fortunate enough to study piano with Dr. Ben Dockery during my time as an undergraduate music major. Dr. Dockery is not only an excellent musician, pianist, and arranger, but he is also a patient and thoughtful instructor who cares about his students. Dr. Dockery helped me to grow both musically and technically during the four years I studied with him, and he also taught me one of the most valuable lessons that I can pass along to my own students: how to practice. Understanding the benefits of slow, focused practice made a true difference in my growth as a pianist. Because of his encouragement, I chose to pursue graduate work in piano performance, and now as a Master’s student, I reflect on how much he helped to prepare me for this experience. I often find myself quoting Dr. Dockery to my own students, and I hope to have the opportunity to impact a student someday as he did for me.
Dr. Dockery is a wonderful teacher and mentor, and I would gladly recommend him to any student!

I have been teaching this subject for over 16 years. The main curriculum for beginners is Alfred's Basic Piano Library. There are three beginner levels (beginner, late, adult) and one will be selected after the first meeting. For non-beginning students, the course of study will be developed based on past experience, current abilities, and goals. It is not necessary to know how to read music at the first lesson for beginners. However, learning to read is a part of subsequent lessons. Music is not learned "by ear." A certain amount of theory will be a part of every lesson just as technique and repertoire. Students should come to the first lesson prepared to discuss their background & goals and the plan of their course of study.

Troy is an absolutely magical teacher and mentor. He not only provides caring, personalized instruction that goes far beyond the traditional fundamentals, he really takes the time to push me in ways that I find enjoyable and rewarding. I feel as though my lessons are dynamic and varied enough to keep me always engaged and looking forward to that next session. Best of all, Troy is that special type of guru that really gives you that added incentive to go the extra mile...I never feel a guilt or pressure to be at a certain level or practice a certain amount, I just feel this desire to impress Troy during my next lessons. Awesome stuff - very special guy! Looking forward to a lifetime of learning with Troy!

"I have been studying piano with Joseph for nearly five years. In that time, I’ve learned more about the piano and musical interpretation than I ever thought possible.

Joseph’s technical ‘short cuts’ are amazing! He illustrates ways for your hands and your mind to work that are tailor made for you. Learning from him is so fun it seems almost effortless.

The way Joseph teaches allows you to develop at your own pace. The atmosphere is always relaxed yet everything moves along quickly.

At the open classes I attend, his other students are progressing very rapidly too. After each class, we share our impressions. The mood is elated because it feels like we stepped back in time and into history.

Joseph often quotes inspired wisdom of his historic teachers in our lessons. He is a great inspiration on his own with great musical insights.

I’m playing Beethoven and Chopin works I never thought I could approach at this stage of study, with great depth of understanding. I now play with greater passion and skill, get compliments from everyone I play for, and no longer worry about playing in public.

I look forward to each and every lesson with Joseph. His encouragement and support makes learning so rewarding! Anyone who finds this musical treasure is a lucky person and I cannot recommend him highly enough."

"Steven B. is an exceptional piano teacher. He knows how to motivate and encourage a student, and is very accommodating with regard to a student's particular interests.
One of his most outstanding teaching features is that he has an entirely unique approach to ear training (playing by ear). He creates customized playing-by-ear, step-by-step, walk-through recordings--which he professionally produces in his home studio.
These recordings break down a piece in such a way which allows a student to learn how to recognize intervals, chords, chord inversions, melodic lines, and more.
I cannot emphasize enough the (often under-appreciated) value of such ear training for students at all levels."
