Teaches all skill levels
Teaching since 2013
Teaches ages 10+
Has background check
As a cover band player untrained in piano or organ, all of my skills need improving--rock organ soloing, fingering and chording techniques, patch selection, and more. AJ has been able to help me with all of that. He's patient and has tons of touring experience. That's especially valuable to me as a live performer. Highly recommended!
He's present in the moment. Priceless.
