Your time and money is too precious to waste on a mediocre teacher. My students get results from the very first lesson. For over 20 years I've helped students of all ages go far beyond their goals; whether it's learning a favorite song, getting in a band, winning music scholarships, or learning music for school ensembles. My lessons are tailored to your interests and taught at your pace.

About Gerald

HIRE GERALD NOW! I've had online lessons with several teachers before Gerald. He is absolutely the best! Even over the internet he can immediately zero in on what you're doing right, wrong, then show you the quickest and easiest way to get better. The sound quality of his studio is better than any other drum teacher. Instead of using the horrible mic that's built into a laptop or iPad that distorts and sounds terrible, Gerald using a dozen professional mics to give you superior sound during every lesson. He simply gives the best experience.

I've been working with Brian for four months now and have made excellent progress on guitar. Brian quickly adjusted to my experience level and has done an outstanding job of removing long-standing bad habits and reinforcing the good ones. He has a fresh approach which ensures students don't get bored and, best of all, instills confidence and a good stage presence. I'm on my way to being a better guitar player but more importantly, a better musician. I recommend Brian without reservation.
Wendy
Brian has been great , he patiently provides simple tangible explanations for both guitar play and music theory. He is building a solid foundation for my musical growth and more importantly supporting and enhancing my love of music. I give Brian my highest recommendation, he's a natural teacher

I have been teaching privately for 10+ years, and have experience teaching students of all ages, regardless of their experience level. The most important thing I try to emphasize in lessons is to have fun. While learning a new instrument can be difficult, it is important to remember that progress takes time and strive to build upon each lesson.

Bernard personalised our lessons to my level of knowledge and made sure that I was growing even though I was a complete newbie.

He's really encouraging and is always giving me feedback on areas I can improve.. These are things I wouldn't have picked up on myself!

I can see improvement already, and look forward to future lessons with him.

Thanks Bernard

"Howard is an amazing teacher. He is intuitive, patient and has a knack for identifying just what you need to learn when you need to learn it. His tips always help accelerate the learning process. I've found that letting go of my preconceptions and following his advice is always the better way to go.

I am in my 50's and stated lessons just a few months ago - but I am playing songs and thoroughly enjoying every note along the way to achieving my goals.

I would highly recommend Howard as a teacher of piano and also of learning how to learn."
