Amazing teacher! My 6 year old daughter has been taking piano lessons with Matthew for more than a 1 1/2 years and is always asking when she will have her next piano lesson. He is a very patient teacher and very knowledgeable of the subject. Matthew has a very kid-friendly personality and now, my daughter has been taking a few singing lessons once in a while, too.

I have been taking music lessons on and off for many years now and it's easy to say that Matthew has been the best! He is super knowledgeable and very easy to work with.

John is a fantastic instructor. He has a love for educating others on musical expression and he is a wellspring of musical knowledge. He provides a depth to the piano that I wouldn't have noticed if I taught myself how to play.

John emphasized how to shape musical phrases to make music as opposed to a collection of notes. He had a good ear for honing in on my weaknesses such as how some notes that I played stuck out or the movement of my arms. Most importantly, he taught me how to approach practicing the piano in an effective way. I learned how to listen to myself and how give each note, phrase, and piece the attention and musicality it needed to sound beautifully.

For an adult learner as myself, he was accommodating with how busy I was. He adjusted to my needs and work schedule and taught at a reasonable pace. However, he also never veered from his expectations and praised what I was doing right and provided methods to fix what I was doing wrong.

Although there were times when John expressed his passion for music by delving into tangents on the broader historical significance of pieces, his mini-lectures were never irrelevant nor inappropriate. For example, he commented on how in waltzes, the rhythm on the left hand would need to emulate how a Romantic era string section would play it. For anyone who is serious about how or why pieces of music are meant to be played in a certain way, John is great about contextualizing pieces to make them sound great.

Most importantly, he made practicing piano something that was both enjoyable and challenging, which is difficult to find in a teacher. I owe a great deal of my musicianship to John and he met my expectations of learning the piano. Thank you!
Kenny
John is really great. He takes the time to understand what your goals are and teaches according to your needs. He is patient and provides constructive comments.

Here, New York, NY piano teacher Nadia B. shares her tips to keep in mind...   You're approaching a passage with the word 'fortissimo' written on the music, and you're building up to a musical climax. As you feel the power of the music, you want to play loudly, but when you do, it doesn't sound as beautiful as you imagined. Playing loudly at the piano is easy; …
