About Ruth

I have played piano since I was six years old, when my parents enrolled me in my first music classes. I continued my music education while going to elementary, middle, and high school. Ultimately, I graduated with a Master's Degree in Music from Butler University, located in Indianapolis, Indiana *** Lesson Details *** Music has been one of my greatest passions since I was a little girl, and teaching it is my favorite way to share my love of music. I teach students of all ages and skill levels from early beginners to experienced piano players who want to bring their performance to a higher level. I emphasize piano technique, musicianship, performance skills and music history. But I also use piano lessons to help my students develop life skills, such as concentration, focus, poise and

My 8 year old son has been taking piano lessons from Ruth for about 6 month now. She is wonderful with him. They do as much giggling as they do playing the piano but he is learning so much! My son will likely never be a spectacular pianist but he will learn to love music and playing for his own enjoyment from Ruth. She is giving him a tremendous gift that could last the rest of his life.

About Jerry

I've been playing and loving music for well more than half a century, now. I got started in second grade when my grandpa brought home a little violin one day, and I've been at it ever since. I was fortunate to take lessons for more than ten years with Carita Page, a teacher who was very warm, encouraging, and caring. I do my best to pass that on to my students in addition to the technique of playing and the theory of music, fascinating as those are. I feel that playing in groups is very valuable experience for students and gives you a side of music that private lessons alone cannot. I encourage students to look for opportunities to do that. To help provide those opportunities I organized the Cranbury Scout Band, one of very few continuously-operating Scout bands in the country, ...

About Michael

Born and raised in New Jersey, I have been involved with music for many years. The instruments that I play include Trumpet, French Horn, Handbells, Organ, Voice, and Piano. I received my formal education at Moravian College in Bethlehem, PA, which is where I earned a B.A. degree with Honors in Music. In order to obtain my Honors, I chose to develop elementary lessons on Chinese folk music. In my Junior year of college, I performed a dual media recital in both Voice and Piano, and for my Senior year recital, I focused on giving a Vocal performance. These recitals demonstrated the musical talent and techniques that I had developed throughout my experience at college. In addition to my musical experiences in college, I have also learned about various pedagogical approaches through both

My daughter and I have started taking piano lessons about 3 months back and we are happy to say that our experience learning with Mike has been excellent. He has so much experience which he is able to use to help out novices like us who are just starting to learn. His patience and good humor is what we need the most at this stage. He helps us relax and encourages us to try again and again until we get the hang of it. He sets the pace according to our pace of learning and this helps us stay positive and motivated.

We recommend Mike to all prospective students. I am sure everyone would benefit from lessons with him. We are sure to learn from him for a long time to come if we manage not to overcome his patience.

I've been taking piano lessons with Mike for 2 years. He introduced me to new types of music and was always looking for pieces he thought I would enjoy. I learned a great deal of technique and skills as well as music theory to help me in my musical future. I appreciate all the time you spent with me. Thank you for the past two years.

About Inbal

Hello. my name is Inbal and I am very happy to introduce my self, hoping we get the chance to work together. I am a musician. For many years I teach piano and music theory. I enjoy it very much:) I love to share my knowledge. Like the Sages said, the good teacher is he who studies from his students, so I always try to learn something from my students. I've graduated the high academy for music in Jerusalem in 2010. I've also graduated MA in musicology at the Hebrew university in 2012. Beside playing classic music I love to improvise and sing, accompany myself and jam with other musicians. My approach to teaching piano is that the piano is first of all the student's friend, and not just an instrument we try to master. From my experience, I find that every student is special and

My son started learning piano with Inbal in June this year. Since then he progressed to learning how to recognize notes, playing simple songs and even composing his own songs. I like to see my active 7-year old actually sitting down and engaging in musical activity. I have to agree with the other reviewers that Inbal is very nice teacher and very patient with children. I highly recommend Inbal to anybody interested in taking piano lessons.

Inbal came to our home to teach our 7 and 9 year old boys. She was always reliable, consistent and very patient. She is so nice and perfect for teaching children. She sought out piano songs they would enjoy learning. Inbal would also send them video clips from the internet to engage them in interesting songs and expose them to multiple instruments. She's a gem.

About Shane

Hello! I'm Shane and I would love to be your voice teacher! I am committed to uncovering the true potential that each singer possesses as well as helping their awareness as a musician. Regarding my private vocal and music theory students, I identify the individual needs and create a curriculum based on the the learning style of each student. Vocally, I include the following subjects with every student: relaxation, posture and alignment, breathing, phonation, support, registration, resonance, and articulation. It is extremely important that every student has a sense of achievement and success. Studio Lessons: I currently have a studio that enables me to audio or video record each lesson. I also use a fully weighted electric piano for these lessons and have a music stand for ...

I am fairly new to singing, but Shane has helped me tremendously. I was unsure of what I actually wanted to do in voice lessons, but through his open communication and great teaching, he helped me find a path and I love to sing. He really shows an interest in you as a person as well as your voice. It is obvious that he is very well educated and experienced. I felt as though I could ask him anything and he would have the right answer. He is excellent at helping you develop your voice as well as how to use it in the most healthy efficient way possible. I would highly recommend him to everyone who is interested in voice lessons, either for pleasure or for a career path. I am thrilled with the work Shane has done for me just after a few lessons, and I can't wait for another.

Over the past 2 months, I’ve found Jimmy to be a phenomenal teacher. While I’ve spent my whole life experimenting with my voice, what I’ve learned in these past months has completely transformed both how I understand singing and my voice itself. No doubt, I still have a long way to go, but over this short period of time, I really cannot believe how much Jimmy has already helped me tap into a fullness and range I never thought my voice had.

I think what’s best about Jimmy is he fully understands what it takes to become a good singer, and how to fully find one’s singing voice. I will admit, the exercises Jimmy has you perform seem a bit odd at first, but it’s all part of the learning process to understand the mechanics of how to sing properly. Like all things worthwhile, results don’t happen overnight (although a couple months isn’t too shabby), but I can promise that if you study with Jimmy, you will have a teacher who has walked the path, knows it backwards and forwards, and will be able to help train you to sing fuller, healthier, and typically with more range. Furthermore, Jimmy tailors your lessons to your genre of choice!

Sounds like a pretty good deal to me.

Jimmy is a great instructor. He takes you seriously no matter what you skill or knowledge level is. When I started with Jimmy I could play guitar but generally only Cowboy chords.

Jim was patient, he analyzed how I played , what I knew and he tailored lessons around what I knew. That way I got the most out of my time and money spent. I can go on and on about Jimmy but for you sake I'll just say that I highly recommend him
