I have a degree in music composition, and have composed pieces for concert performance, film, and publication, as well as hundreds of songs in a variety of genres. I've developed a unique, project-based approach to help the student understand where composition, songwriting etc fit in the modern music industry, and how to develop their own music from idea to paper to final performance/recording.

About Aaron S.

Hi, I'm Aaron, and I'm here to help you achieve your personal musical goals. In 1999 I received a degree in music composition, and I've been composing, performing, directing, producing, and of course teaching ever since. I believe every student is unique, with individual strengths and challenges, and with quality instruction and perseverance every student can use their strengths to perform the music they desire. I look forward to helping you get started!

I had a great experience learning from Aaron. I was a brand new piano player with no knowledge of the instrument or music in general. Aaron was very patient and diligent in teaching me how to set a musical foundation. If you have the pleasure of working with him you will see why he is so highly rated.

Very professional, kind, organized and knowledgeable teacher. He is great at helping me determine what I need to work on and he knows how to help me achieve my goals. I would recommend him as a piano teacher to anyone!

Aaron is awesome. I really needed a teacher to help me think beyond the notes and chords on the sheet music. I highly recommend him.

A great teacher....my son is of intermediate/advance level. He focuses on his strength and abilities. Never heard him say 'that's wrong' but instead he would explain into more details what the mistake was. Very patient teacher and well worth 45mins travel each way to his studio.

I had my first lesson with Aaron today. Since this was my first online lesson, I really wasn't sure what to expect. He was very easy going and explained things in detail when I had questions or when he was explaining things to me which I appreciated. I am looking forward to my next lesson.

Aaron really knows not only his area of expertise, but also how to impart it to the willing student in a way they can comprehend at the speed necessary token them motivated, yet challenged. He helps you determine what your goals are from, in this case, playing the piano, and then how to achieve them in the most effective methods possible. I think he is an excellent instructor with a store of knowledge yet to impart and impossible to measure. I think I will be with him for a very, very long time.

We are thrilled with the piano skills my daughter has learned from Aaron. He is so patient, kind,flexible and encouraging with his students. He gets to know your student then custom designs a plan for each student. For us he is hands down the best piano teacher on the planet!

My three sons have been taking piano lessons from Aaron for years. We highly recommend him! Aaron teaches them at their individual level, to their own interests, moving each of them forward at their own pace. His patience knows no bounds. Taking lessons online has been great for our schedule! We haven't missed a beat since moving from in-person to online lessons.

Aaron is an amazing teacher. He helps with any problem you might have and listens very carefuly. He is patient and makes sure we understand everything. Aaron teaches everything about piano, including music theory, how to have an awesome performance, and, of course, how to play the piano.

Aaron is patient, knowledgeable, and teaches pertinent to the skill level of the student. He fully considers that each student learns differently, and at varied paces. I would recommend him to anyone!
