What do you offer for a beginner?

Assuming a student has never played a piano and is 10 years old or older, lessons will focus on fundamentals of technique and sight reading classically oriented material. I follow piano curriculum developed by John Thompson and Alfred.

For students under 10 years of age without any prior piano training, a preparatory book may be used.

After a minimum 6-12 months of continuous piano lessons (assuming a weekly schedule), music theory will be introduced, along with chord playing.

What do you offer for a non-beginner?

Assuming a student has had a minimum of one year of continuous piano training, depending on the lesson customization, lessons will be based around the Alfred and/or John Thompson curriculum, and music theory and chord playing will be introduced.

Should a student already know chord playing, I will fast forward the lesson to sight reading lead sheet/fake books and learning pop, rock or jazz piano playing styles (left and ...

I have responsibility review of lessons with him.

First,when I contacted with him about lessons,he suggested me interview that there’s no charge but he would want to discuss with me what I would do expect piano lessons for my son for future.
After discussion,I sent my son another day,it was the first lesson.
Surprisingly,he had prepared its already pre-printed lesson flows!
I appreciated it that it means,we guardians don’t need worry about what we could expect lessons,but of course required practice for next time.
Patent could check what happened the lesson was,what would be for next.

Bastin,Alfred,as you know,those textbooks that kids could learn all the notes.
He uses some of them,it would be combined for your child.

If you looking for the best fundamentally for your child,to play piano,not only enjoyable one,I think he’s the best.

I know there are many Japanese families in Bryn Mawr,I would recommend he’s class!

We are moving family,I expect the piano lessons with him would be make my son’s knowledge to play piano more stronger,also beyond countries,even time passed by.

He is a great teacher he helps you learn it so you can understand, he simplifies what your having a hard time on and then you'll get it

Tim is a really nice and patient teacher. I did not have any drum experience before, but Tim arranges the first courses from basic rhythm practice, and also asked me to set up a long goal of playing drum cover of my favorite song. So the drum lesson is always interesting and compact, which makes me want to practice more in my spare time. I hope I could follow up the courses with more improvement and did better with his guidance.

Awesome teacher! Not just a great drummer, but patient and articulate. He was really able to help me understand and execute in ways I never could before. Seems like he would also be great with kids...super patient and encouraging!
Janna R.
David is a very skilled drummer and a very enthusiastic teacher. In lessons, he seems to like to split time between practicing rudiments and learning to play different rhythms on the set. He is also exceptionally patient and supportive with my 9-year-old, highly distractible daughter. David is very positive, pointing out things that are going well and interesting rhythms that they discover. I am really glad we found David--he is an excellent teacher and I love watching my daughter learn so much about music!

About Ryland

Hi there! My name is Ryland and I am a full-time vocal coach. Thanks for taking a look at my profile here on TakeLessons - I know you have a lot of options, so let me tell you a little bit about what makes my teaching approach so unique and successful. I received formal education for Vocal Perf

Ryan D.
I had singing classes before for years, but before meeting Ryland I had a 2 year hiatus for many reasons. I needed someone that could help me evolve my rusty technique to gain vocal power while going thru FTM hormone therapy. In the first few weeks I already noticed a big difference in my voice, being able to hit such power that I didn’t had before. He would also notice my strenghts and weaknesses, and work on them with easy to understand concepts and techniques. Each week it gets more challenging and with him I’m able to get better each time, so it does end up not being challenging at all! He also understands that my voice is going thru changes, so everything is done in a healthy way, pushing forward my knowledge and practice while making it a safe transition! He’s kind enough to give me lessons that I work at home in-between classes as well. And to top it all, we both have the same sense of humor, so after a tough day at work, being able to do what I love while being a funny and relaxing experience it’s gold! Thank you Ryland! Can’t wait for my next class! :)

Ryland is the real deal. He’s an amazing teacher and has helped me resolve an issue that I’ve had my entire life with my voice. I always felt I was straining my voice and always had to make a huge effort trying to be heard and yet my voice would not project and often people would have a hard time hearing what I was saying. I always felt very frustrated because our voice is such an intimate expression of ourselves and I felt that I was making this huge effort and my voice did not feel like a natural expression of myself. Instead I felt tense and uncomfortable. When I picked up acting, the issues with my voice, the need to be heard and to have a confident vocal range became more urgent. I didn’t really believe it would be possible because I had tried a speech therapist in the past but Ryland has taught me how to make lasting changes to my voice that have made a huge difference in my life. Ryland is incredibly gifted. He has an amazing ear and can hear things about my voice that I don’t even know how to put into words. We worked over a period of several months and he was a truly wonderful teacher, not only in terms of the work we did during the lessons but also his kindness, compassion and nurturing were equally important in helping me make the changes. I can’t recommend him highly enough.
Mark
Ryland is an exceptional communicator, helping me learn to get out of my own way and trust my voice that's already here. Together we developed a daily practice, specifically designed to strengthen my weaknesses and carve out the grooves I need in order to do my best work. Join forces with Ryland and you will build confidence, you will build YOUR voice, and you will move forward with excitement and anticipation!

Online Music Performance Teacher

All my students have multiple opportunities to perform throughout the year. I generally put on a Christmas student recital and a student recital just before summer break. In addition to these 'concerts', I offer performance classes once every other month where students get together and do a variety of activities which may include playing for each other, jamming, performing as duos and trios, or taking a lesson in front of the group. We have fun and all learn a lot at the same time!

Jeff really is an amazing instructor. Until a couple months ago, coincidently when I began my lessons with him, if you asked me if I sang you would've gotten a hard no in response. Not because I didn't have it in me, but because I didn't ever have the confidence to even try. Now not only am I actually learning how to sing, but I'm gaining the confidence I need as well.

To sum it up, Jeff's easygoing demeanor, vast knowledge, and immense skill come together to really meet the client where they are at.

"Jan is a very talented, inspiring teacher and a wonderful person. I've really enjoyed her performance class: 'Acting for Singers'. Her classes are challenging, creative and really get to the core of what you need to work on as a singer/performer, in a safe and comfortable environment. I always leave feeling inspired and very emotionally connected to my music.
Jan is very genuine in wanting to help her students achieve success. I highly recommend working with Jan!"

"I hired Danny to help me in the studio. I was recording about 3 songs I needed help with. On these original songs, I had been working on with another coach unnamed that had me do scales and but after hours of recording, the coach didn't know what else to say except breathe deep. With Danny in about 15-20 min, we were able to knock out my songs easily. Danny isn't your average instructor. He actually goes beyond scales. Some of my issues in were singing close to my break and certain phrases were hard to work with. Others were as basic as the way I was standing. I am impressed."
