Would you like to study with a Concert Pianist / Composer with graduate degrees from the renowned Juilliard School?

If you do, than why not with a winner and laureate of multiple international competitions such as the International Canada Recording Competition, Beethoven International Competition (Austria, Vienna), The New York Philharmonic Competition and others? If you find a teacher who successfully competed in the field, why not one who also had been respected enough to be invited to judge it? I served as judge on competition juries for the National Teachers Association and many other competitions.

Should you get a teacher who is In high demand as a master teacher, lecturer and educator at many music festivals such as Utah Music Festival, Milwaukee Music Festival and others around the world? Requested for knowledge and expression as an editor of professional music publications at Oxford University in the two volume compendium of music knowledge and history with ...

Joseph put us at ease immediately. Our first lesson included valuable information on how to warm up our voices, increase our range and protect our voices. We look forward to our next lesson.
Donna
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.
Ron
Joseph shared his composition at the bedside of a dying man. Everyone listened and stopped crying for a moment. We were transported from the terrible tragedy into his world of beautiful music. His compassion and sensitivity of spirit touched us. When he teaches this gift to others, the world becomes a better place.

Private Piano Teacher

I have been teaching private piano lessons for five years, and I love working with children of all ages and skill levels. I have been playing the piano for 17 years, and began at a very young age. Because of this, I strongly believe that if there is a desire to learn, the age you start does not matter. I work well with both beginner level students and intermediate level students. I was taught using the Suzuki method, and I use parts of that method in my own teaching. I also incorporate basic music theory lessons into my teaching.

About Abigail

I'm currently a student at Eastman School of Music, majoring in Piano Performance. I began taking piano lessons when I was two years old and loved every minute of it. I enjoy working with children of all ages, and strongly believe that if there is a desire to learn, the age at which you begin does

About Alex

I was passionate about music when I was younger, but I never had the tools to get where I wanted. Music was always a mystery to me and I got stuck learning from tabs and not stepping out of my circle of knowledge. It wasn't until I pursued music seriously that my love for the art really took off.

My daughter especially likes when Keith makes up accompaniment parts to play along with her songs. She enjoyed her first lesson so much that she kept playing the new tunes she learned and looking them

"I have two little girls, and Andree-Ann has been teaching them both. What I really like is that she doesn't teach them exactly the same thing and tailors their lessons according to their abilities, and their interests. For example, one is super into Taylor Swift and the other one wants to play classical music, so they're both learning things they enjoy. We used to have a different teacher who was only teaching certain pieces and it seemed that all of her students were playing the same thing. At least now the girls aren't complaining about practicing because they're excited to play their music!"

Having always yearned to play piano and have fun with it, I was never successful with instructional piano books or videos. It wasn't until I started taking lessons with Randy that I truly learned to play piano and love it! His vast knowledge of music and easy-going personality assists to create an eagerness to learn more. From the basics to the more complicated elements in piano, he moves at your own pace while also challenging you. Additionally, Randy’s lessons are catered to what you are interested in rather than just go-by-the book lessons. He even has taught me how to play by ear rather than always using sheet music! Randy is simply the best music teacher out there and his lessons are incomparable to others!"
