I've been teaching piano for over 20 years and my students have gone on to major in music in college, become music teachers, and become lifelong lovers and players of music.. Within the first few lessons, you'll become comfortable at the piano keyboard and as time goes on you'll be able to play a variety of music in various styles. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Great class. Worked on fundamental vowel sounds, resonance placement, releasing tension, and smoothing out my passagio. I look forward to working more with David, especially in terms of smoothing out my passagio and understanding head voice more

I studied with Bennie for several years with the goal of improving my improvisational skills and hand independence. I improved in both areas significantly and am much stronger player. Bennie can push you to a very high level and he stays very engaged between lessons for questions, feedback and additional support. He even attended my performance shows and offered feedback. My only regret is that my day job obligations, available practice time and personal learning speed did not allow a greater lesson frequency.
Bob S.
I couldn't ask for a better teacher. Bennie has the talent and experience to help anyone trying to either learn from scratch or improve their current skill level. Due to the fact that I travel quite a bit with my business I used the holiday season to get a refresher course and Bennie was the right teacher for this. He gave me more in 5 lessons then I could have gotten from anyone else if I had 20 lessons. Unfortunately, I travel a lot for my business and I can't commit to a regular lesson schedule.

I can help them become better active listeners to their playing, no matter what instrument. Understanding theory will help them know their notes better, but being able to hear wrong notes and fixing them is also very important. I have perfect pitch and have taken ear training classes in college.

About Holly

I have been playing piano for 15 years, and taught two students while I was still in high school. I took a break from teaching for a few years, but recently started teaching again, while finishing up college. I am introverted, but I bond well with kids and will treat them well. I give in person an

As I am an older adult piano student with many years of experience playing organ and digital keyboard, including publicly and for hire, I was uncertain which way to go when I decided to add piano (and ultimately jazz piano) to my repertoire. After considering a number of options (online teaching programs, books, YouTube videos, and various instructors), I decided to employ Holly's vast musical expertise. I was impressed that she had a proposed lesson plan right off the bat, and she convinced me that starting with classical music may be the way to morph my way into jazz piano. I knew as a fact that many jazz musicians had their start that way. Holly has been very patient with my learning the whole new way of playing that a piano entails (no more relying on the built-in bells and whistles of an arranger keyboard). I would recommend Holly for adult students as well as children. She knows her stuff. And if she gets mad if I don't play something right the first time, she sure doesn't show it (mainly because she DOESN'T get mad at all). But my biggest recommendation comes that she is darn passionate about what she does.
Leroy
Holly is an incredible pianist and teacher. Always patient and understanding. She always has the answer to questions I have and can explain it clearly. I would recommend Holly to anyone looking to learn piano the correct way.

I started my formal music training at the age of four and have been giving music lessons since 2010. Most of my students reached and passed the short-term goals or exams I gave them, including NYSSMA, ABRSM, and some of them even got accepted into special high schools. Of course, all lessons are customized and catered depends on each student's abilities and goals. We can definitely work together to figure out the best way to help you or your child. I will as well teach you music theory, sight-read, ear-training, and a lot more techniques during our lessons. After all, we cannot play music without knowing some basic concepts or recognizing how they sound like, right? Take lessons with me, not only will you be playing songs in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation and skills of music making!

Due to the coronsvirus, I decided to restart the piano I had abandoned as a kid. I am very pleased so far with my lessons. Chloe takes the time to understand my goals and developed a lesson plan customized to my needs. She explains much more than my previous music teacher. She makes learning music much more interesting.

Jack and I communicated regarding my music experience and guitar goals prior to my first lesson. He was prepared and had a good starting point ready to go. After 3 lessons, I can say I’m very happy with the combination of music theory and practical guitar playing in my lessons. Jack knows his stuff and is a good guitar teacher.
Andy L
I’ve been taking guitar lessons from Jack for about 8 months and it’s been an absolutely rewarding experience. I’m an adult with no musical background or training at all (despite owning a guitar for over a decade), so we began with the basics. He’s done a great job of introducing me to technique/principles of music and having me learn songs that are fun, but also challenging enough to push me further each time. What I appreciate most are his encouragement and patience. His approach is very positive and it makes for a comfortable learning environment, which has been absolutely key for me. Playing guitar is clearly Jack’s passion and it’s evident how much he wants to share that during lessons. I can’t recommend him highly enough.
Bill
Jack is an awesome teacher! I started taking lessons from Jack about 7 months ago as a total beginner on the guitar. In our intro lesson, he asked me what my goals were (basically sing and play at the same time!) and has done a really great job structuring our lessons around what I want to do. Jack packs a ton into our 30-minute lessons--we play out of the lesson book, learn chords, practice techniques, and he usually gives me a fun song to sing and play. He's really good at pushing me out of my comfort zone to try new things (blues improv!) and is always very patient and positive. I would highly recommend Jack for beginners or any skill level!

Joris
Wit's understanding and non-dogmatic teaching style made classes high-quality and stress-free. Remote instruction was deeply engaging, which I wasn't expecting as someone who is used to in-person music classes. I definitely learned more than I have in any other guitar class.

I especially appreciated that class felt like a discussion rather than a recital. Instead of following one method or theme, I was encouraged to completely shift our attention at any time if there was anything I was curious about.

Wit presents difficult ideas with enough context that I, having a limited understanding of theory, felt able to keep up and incorporate higher-level concepts into my writing/playing.

Can't recommend Wit's classes enough!
Bianca
Prawit is such an incredible teacher - he structures the lessons to your specific goals, makes sure you understand everything before you move on, and makes it fun!
I love the structure he provides, and also the fact that he makes sure to check in as you are progressing. 👏🏼 I highly recommend him as a teacher

I have been Prawit's student for several years in both in-home lessons and online. He is an amazing teacher! Prawit really takes the time to understand what I want to learn, and shows me how to achieve those goals. He is extremely clear, patient, and supportive. He teaches me both acoustic and electric guitar in several different musical genres.

"Joe taught both my kids and made it a wonderful experience

We wanted our son and daughter to have an appreciation of music and at the same time enjoy the experience. Joe was the perfect solution. He has the ability to reach out to kids and make them feel comfortable. He encouraged them to select the music they enjoyed and then molded his lessons around their interest. We didn't really need to push them to practice, they actually enjoyed it. This had not been the case at other organizations, where it was always a chore to have them practice."
