Do you want to play classical piano music, rock keyboard, pop music, jazz? You are in the right place!

I choose and adapt songs according to the age, interests, goals, and skills of the students. I also use the songs to teach different musical concepts: intervals, progressions, scales, chords. Every student is different, so I don't use any specific method.

La clase puede ser en español.

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’m an adult viola student which is kind of different for me. I started playing again after a couple years and I’m trying to learn ways to play with other musicians. Emily has been really good with helping me focus on what I want to learn. She is patient with me and also plays with me and makes me feel comfortable in my lesson. afterwards I feel good and positive and I want to play more! I suggest her for anyone trying to be creative and wants to improve on tempo, rythm, tone etc. she’s good.
