I have decades of experience working with students of all ages and levels and I often prepare students for recitals and NYSMMA competitions. I do not use a cookie-cutter method for instruction. Lessons are tailored to meet the specific needs of each student and taught in a comfortable and friendly teaching environment.

I specialize in teaching:

Have you ever hoped to learn piano but didn't know where to start? Whether you (or your child) want to learn classical, jazz, pop, gospel or rock, I have experience performing and teaching many different styles of keyboard and piano. I've taught piano for about 8 years to ages ranging from 4 to over 60! It's never too late to start.

I have a master's degree from UT in jazz piano and a bachelor's in classical piano from James Madison University. I've played in a wide variety of bands and ensembles, ranging from pop cover bands to reggae groups, jazz trios and classical ensembles. In addition, I have more than eight years of experience teaching piano to students of all ages, young to old. Whatever style you're hoping to pick, I can help you learn and understand the music you play so that you can really connect with the music.

I focus my lessons towards what the student wants to accomplish. If you want to learn a song, I will find the music for you or transcribe it from the ...

In our lessons, beginning students will learn to read music, play their favorite pieces, how to do warm ups and learn basic skills. I use sheet music and introductory books in my classes and assign homework for their daily practice. After 3 months, each student will move to the next level and continue learning more advanced skills. More advanced students will learn how to understand and compose music, put expression into the pieces they play and improve their current skills.

I have been playing piano since I was a young child and have always had a passion for music. I apprenticed in China under a master piano teacher for 15 years and then immediately started performing in many different venues. 18 years ago, I started teaching piano and have enjoyed sharing my love o

Lena is a brilliant teacher. I've really enjoyed her lessons in the past few weeks and feel as if I'm improving quickly thanks to the help she's given me and the practice exercises she's assigned. If anyone's looking to take lessons with a new teacher, I strongly recommend her.

My primary lessons can begin with a lesson book or by ear training. It is up to the student to decide which method works best. The basic lessons for beginners, in most cases, will require some form of music notation and theory to understand what makes music happen. Ear training is a method used for those who have some basic knowledge of music or who can sight read already. My music teaching method is personal and uniquely developed and designed from over 20 years of personal music teaching to both children and adults.

About Clayton

I am currently a church organist and have over 20 years of experience in teaching children and adults piano and organ lessons. My methods are traditional and contemporary. I received my Bachelors of Music Degree from Marygrove College located in Detroit, MI, and also an Associate Degree in Music

"Jess is a very patient teacher who knows how to be strict on the right things. He has a great deal of skill and knowledge of music and music theory. He actively encourages his students to play what they enjoy playing so that lessons and practice do not become a chore but rather something they enjoy and look forward to. He lets students determine their goals and work towards thing they want to do and play. But he also make sure those students stay on their goals and put in the work and practice needed to reach those goals. He is a great teacher, from beginning students to advanced students in multiple instruments."

I had some background with piano from childhood but Adam's taught me some music theory fundamentals that I hadn't learned before. Getting a lot out of it and highly recommend."
