Overview

With over 40 years of professional playing on small and large stages I am able to offer my students a diverse range of educational resources.
I am still playing actively in bands in surrounding area.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am easy going and I want you to feel comfortable and at ease, but we do need to focus & can have fun doing it.
I utilize various methods , which is determined by the students learning style & needs, so this can change as time goes on
(not sticking to one particular publishers materials). I have done (& continue to do) extensive research into materials available for Piano and supplement with my own, to utilize the best out there for "YOU" for the best possible progress. While ensuring an extremely well-rounded musical education, so you can progress at the best possible rate. Since each student's potential is different, each will progress differently. This is also determined by your dedication to daily practice (the more you practice, the quicker you will progress & the more accomplished you will become). This is a 'Team Effort'; I give the guidance & tools, and you practice, utilize & learn these tools, & off we go! The sky is the limit!!! :-D

I started classes March 2015 and can honestly say Bo is an excellent instructor. He is very patient especially with someone who had no experience. He has a diverse range of taste in music so if you don't want to pay classical he can teach you the blues, jazz, rock, etc. I would definitely recommend this instructor for anyone from no experience to experience.

Bo is very helpful and patient. He is well versed in a number of different styles, including classical, jazz, country, etc. He offers many useful tips and procedures based on his many years of experience. He adapts his teaching style to the needs of the student. I have made huge advancements in the 4 months that I have been taking lesson. I'm excited to see what the future holds. Highly recommended.

Mr. Bo was incredible. Hes patient, kind, funny, and teaches in a way you can really grab onto. He has really inspired me to be better at the piano than i would be able to be. (Im startling later in life at 33)

My lesson was only an hour but he stuck around much longer just talking, sharing music stories, and laughing with my family. He left my house leaving me inspired and motivated.

I cant imagine a better person to teach you or your child the piano.

I am extremely pleased with the lessons that Bo has provided. And I'm very impressed with his music capability as well. I highly recommend him if you're interested in improving your songwriting skills. Or even if you are a beginner like I was.

More than just taking a lesson

Some teacher is know how to give you a good lesson on what you choose for, but with Mr. Bo, you will learn beyond that. My 13 years old son is learning piano with Mr. Bo for a month now. He really enjoys the lessons. Moreover, Mr. Bo always give my son a good advise, not only about how to play piano, but also guide you to the right way to learn and he will tell you how to benefit the most out of learning. Thanks to you, Mr. Bo.
