Private Piano Teacher

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 character attributes one would like to find in a teacher, knowledge, patience and presence! Looking forward to our next lesson. Thanks Ben!
Aena
Fantastic, patient and kind ukelele instructor. I recommend Ben without reservation.
Thanks Ben!
Kamal
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).

Elisabetta has been teaching my daughter since January 2017. She has always been so patient and kind. My daughter has so much fun during her lessons and has learned so much. She enjoys them so much that when the pandemic hit, we knew we had to continued with her lessons online. She still manages to keep her engaged and interested during virtual lessons.

Kathryn comes with two important strengths. First, she is a working professional, with excellent technique and musicality from real world experience. Secondly, she is patient with students like me who are still figuring it out. Those two things make for a great teacher.
Amanda Testa-Oerth
Kathryn has helped me in my musical journey for a very long time! Over the 15 years I have worked with Kathryn she has been a teacher, life coach, and now musical colleague. Kathryn's teaching style is always warm and very informative. She builds confidence on something I did well, then gives me recommendations on how to improve either a technical skill or with musicality of the piece we are working on. After every lesson, I come out feeling improved and more confident than when I went in. Kathryn has guided me in both classical and musical theater pieces as well as introduced me some very interesting contemporary songs that I have greatly enjoyed. With her guidance and instruction, I have grown into a musician that is confident in my own abilities for preforming and a caring instructor to my own students. I highly recommend studying with Kathryn if you have the chance. It is a fantastic learning experience every class!
CJ
Kathryn is brilliant and exceptional. If I could give her more stars I would. She is an amazing teacher no matter what age or evel you are from beginner to pro.

Online Piano Teacher

Music college graduate, with plenty of experience in real-world musical settings and five years of teaching experience. When it comes to teaching I have plenty of patience and no judgment! I like to think of learning piano like hiking an unpaved trail to a destination. At times the trail can become difficult and you might be tempted to give up on the destination. But as you gain momentum and your destination gets closer and closer, one realizes their past troubles were worth their current gains.
My goal is to help you define realistic goals and then, how to obtain them. If you are unsure of what your goals are, that's okay too. We can cover the basics and in time, find out what your musical interests are. However, I expect my students to work towards improving their skills by practicing a little each day, or as I like to say students need to be hitting the woodshed.
My lessons are tailored toward each student's goals but I always include certain topics. The core of my ...

Just judging off our first lesson, it was great! I was really nervous because I haven’t tried to learn to play an instrument in over a decade, but I really enjoyed the lesson with Andrew and I’m looking forward to continuing.
Zach
I've been taking lessons from Andrew for almost 2 years now. He's a great teacher; he's patient, encouraging and accommodating. He builds a strong foundation for playing and understanding music by focusing on the fundamentals first and foremost. I highly recommend him as a teacher!
Gare
I came to Andrew as an intermediate-to-advanced level pianist looking to learn jazz piano. Andrew does a great job pacing his lessons to push new ideas and techniques without being overwhelming. He will also relate the techniques he teaches to how he plays in real life, which is extremely helpful. Andrew is very easy to get along with and is also very responsive between lessons. I'd recommend him for any skill level

Hello there! My name is J and music has been a part of my life since I was a young kid. I learned to play the piano when I was 8 and never stopped learning since. Eventually, I taught myself how to play the guitar and a whole new world of music opened up for me and I would love to share my knowledge with you in a fun, energetic and creative way. Hope to hear from you soon!

Maureen has been a wonderful clarinet teacher! Being an adult who is picking up the clarinet again, I like how Maureen provides a balance of theory, exercises, improvision, and various methods to help me in my playing.

Maureen is patient, always willing to answer questions and encouraging. She makes you want to try harder!

My kids have been taking music lesson from Jesse for several months and they love it. They love the setting in the studio with multiple musical instruments, so that they can get to play other instruments in duets with Jesse. As a parent, I appreciate Jesse's method in teaching young kids. Jesse seems to have music in his heart and his passion can be easily seen by his students. Jesse respects my kids' opinion, yet very disciplined with their attitude. My kids seem to start appreciating 'music' in addition to learning 'skills'."

This is a great way to break up the monotony of rigorous practice, and keep yourself motivated and having fun as you learn how to play.

What Piano Pedals Do + How to Use Them to Sound Like a Pro

Piano pedals are levers which alter the sound of the piano in a variety of different ways. The three types of pedals most pianos have are, from right to left: a sustain pedal, a sostenuto pedal, and a soft pedal. Note: Some digital keyboards may only have one - the sustain pedal - which you can plug into the keyboard. As you get more comfortable at the piano, you may start to wonder about these three pedals at the bottom. What do the pedals on a piano do? You'll find the answers in t …
