My piano lessons for beginners start off with orientating yourself properly with the keyboard. The C position is the most common position for playing simple melodies, and is the groundwork for any new piano beginner. In your first piano lesson, you will learn the beginners version of Beethoven's classic, "Ode to Joy", based on the C position.
Learn the names of keys and the basics of musical notation in this piano lesson. Reading sheet music is the foundation to understanding the piano. There are only 7 keys that you need to know and in this piano lesson for beginners you will be introduced to them all at a smooth pace. Practice in several lessons keys from C to G and G to F for the right hand, as well as reading music properly with your right hand. Seven interactive exercises are geared for piano beginners to train your music reading skills.

My lesson was great. I’ve struggled for years to really get everything to come together, and I’m already starting to see and feel how Rick is, and will continue to, make that happen.

What is there not to love about Sheila! My six year old responds to her well, "Mommy, Ms. Shiela is clear and she makes it fun!"

Have you always wanted to learn piano? Have a child who is interested in music?

I am a professional pianist, composer and teacher (12+ years background in classical piano) specializing in beginner piano students. All ages are welcome, with lessons based on the interests/goals of each student. I will help you build a strong foundation in areas such as rhythm, music theory, note reading and technique, and you'll be playing songs in no time!

Piano was one of my first instruments, and it is a joy to be able to share my love and learning for this instrument and gateway into the vast spread of beautiful music out there. I am a performing artist, and in addition to piano, I specialize in songwriting and singing.

It is a very delightful experience to work with Mimi. She is helping me get those deep lovely tones from the viola and helping me with techniques to help me play without fatigue so I can play longer and with more enjoyment!

I am a graduate of the Columbia-Juilliard exchange program with ten years of teaching experience in beginner to intermediate classical piano and beginner to advanced jazz piano. I also teach accordion, as well as jazz and pop composition, jazz theory and music history. I'm a full time performing musician, so I can teach skills that are relevant to a performing career, but I'm also just as happy to teach someone who has never played an instrument before. Every student is different, and so I believe in catering my lesson plan to the needs and wants of each student, beginning from their goals and working towards a comprehensive knowledge of the piano.

I've taken jazz piano lessons with Ben for almost a year and I really enjoy them! He always finds new ways to explain things and suggests different exercises, even when we are working on one same tune. I always feel motivated to practice at the end of the lesson.

Ben is not only a very talented pianist and kind human being, but he is an incredibly intuitive teacher who understands how to constructively offer suggestions for what needs to be improved but also knows how to push you to the next level (in a way that seems on the edges of what is reachable). This makes learning the piano so exciting, productive, and varied and fun. I highly recommend Ben. It is a privilege to learn from and with him.
