With 20+ years of teaching, I have worked with students with all levels of piano playing experience and helped them improve their performance and musicianship. I hold both Bachelor's and Master's Degree in Music Education and a Doctorate in Educational Leadership. I have specialized in online instruction for the last five years, working with students from all over the world including China, Kenya, Trinidad and Tobago, and Venezuela.
My instructional focus is centered on providing a firm musical foundation upon which students can explore various performance styles. Additionally, students develop sight-reading and improvisational skill sets through study of music theory and ear training.

I never knew you could take piano lessons online! Dr. B made it so easy to learn. He is a great teacher.
Joshua
My teenage son wanted to take music lessons to have another activity to add to his college applications. We knew Dr. B. previously and know he is a good teacher. My son has greatly enjoyed studying with him and said he wants to continue playing piano for fun when he goes to college.
Marcie
I had never studied online before and thought it would be weird for piano. It was not weird, it was amazing. Dr. B. uses several cameras so I can see his face and his hands on the keyboard. It is just like being there in person.

Great. Knowledgable teacher

Seemed a little disorganized. It might have been part of the "getting to know me" process and what I wanted to accomplish. The hour went by very fast!
Frederick
I have taken lessons from Benjamin, and found him to be an excellent teacher. If you are looking for someone to teach you bass, or guitar you can't find a more patient teacher. I would recommend him to anyone seeking lessons.

Hey there!

I am a double-platinum award winning music-producer, songwriter, artist and musician from Germany.

I started playing the guitar when I was 12 years old and since then I was able to gain a lot of experiences on stage, in the studio and as a teacher!
I played in a band for many years, I write my own songs and I produce bands and solo artists.

In 2015 I’ve graduated from the well known ArtEZ University of Music in the Netherlands with a Bachelors of Music degree.
During my studies I’ve covered a lot of subjects e.g.: music theory, music history, music production, music management and also „how to teach music“!

After my studies I’ve worked for several years as a music-producer and achieved a double-platinum award for my work.

As you can see, I’ve got a lot of different qualities and I would love to share my knowledge with you!
Moreover I’m experienced in online-teaching and I have worked with several age groups already!

The most important thing is that I ...

Sergej is a versatile guitar teacher and he helped me to reach the next level within a couple of months! Thanks Sergej! I'm looking forward to see you next week! :)
Evgenij
Sergej is a great and experienced guitar teacher! I like his holistic approach and would definitely recommend him! I am enjoying his lessons since a couple of months and I'm glad that he's teaching me.
Jasmin
Sergej is an awesome guitar teacher! I chose Sergej as my teacher as he is very experienced on different levels. From the first lesson on I knew that he had a clear picture in mind with a lesson plan tailored to my needs and profile. His lessons are highly structured, with a fun finger warm up, listening activities (through him, I learnt how important those are for my personal development and goals) and plenty of time to work on songs that I always wanted to play! His approach is holistic and the feedback I get is always super constructive; plus he has lots of tips on hand that help reaching my goals faster! I have taken lessons at schools before but none of them was as good as the experience with Sergej! Not to forget: Sergej's has such a friendly and calm personality - I would highly recommend him as a teacher!

Cello is famous for its deep and warm sound, probably the widest range from low to high register. It is used for solo, chamber music, ensembles, chamber and symphony orchestras.
But the most important cello can change your mind and fulfill your soul like no other instruments !

I've been working with Nazar since 1998. Not only does he know his stuff and makes his teaching personal to your needs, but he also has a way to make you feel successful even when you are struggling. you always feel better about your playing when you leave than when you got to his studio. He recognizes your learning style and what you want to accomplish, then builds his teaching around that.

If you are looking for a cello teacher (and yes, he also teaches piano and other instruments) I'd say put your time and money into Nazar and you, you will feel it is one of your best investments

"Hi! i am an opera singer who has been out in Southold. I have had the luck to have met Paolo Bartolani.
Paolo is a remarkable teacher and coach. He is so knowledgeable and yet so kind and patient. He has the patience to work with all levels, I am very fortunate to have started working with him.
Now that we have Covid19 we are doing Zoom sessions and they are very successful. Before that we did coaching in Paolo's studio. If you want to learn without embarassment and learn so much work with Paolo Bartolani."

"I learned a lot in my first lesson with Brian. He clearly knows the guitar inside and out. The pace was on the faster side, but he answered all my questions about technique and theory. Beyond what I wanted to focus on (technique), he's laying a solid foundation for theory so that I don't have go rely on the capo or online tabs as much. He also gave me useful scale exercises to build up finger independence and articulation. So far so good."
