When working with a student, I strive to develop the lesson around them. I teach at the pace they learn. I accommodate for busy schedules and assign only the necessary amount of homework for each student. I try to tailor my lessons to suit the needs of each individual student.

About Benjamin P.

I received classical piano training, but I enjoy all types of music. I can also play the organ, guitar, and banjo. I have been teaching local students for almost 5 years and love getting to share my passion for music with others. Along with teaching piano, I am employed as Director of Music at a local Presbyterian Church.

Usually, I teach the James Bastien Piano for the Young Beginner to children and Bastien Piano for Adults to teenagers and adults. I have had a handful of students that preferred to learn by ear and I do not mind teaching that way either. I never use a "one size fits all" approach. Instead, I try to structure the lesson and the curriculum around the individual student.
