About Jean B.

Jean is patient, fun, and imaginative. She also loves passing on the gift of music to anyone wanting to learn!

Jean's philosophy of teaching is; 1. Taking on any new task requires time and discipline. Mistakes are a part of the learning process. The biggest challenges reap the greatest rewards.

2. The student and teacher are a team! The teacher and student will work together to learn together. As the student is learning new skills and techniques, the teacher is learning all about the student and their specialized needs.

Jean's Education:

Jean is a graduate of Bradford College in Bradford MA with a Bachelors Degree in Creative Arts. Her major instrument is piano.

Jean's Experience:

Jean began playing piano at the age of 5. Taking a break from lessons for a few years as a teenager and picking it up again in College.

Jean has been teaching piano for 10 years.

*** Lesson Details ***
Within a lesson, students can expect to be given instruction on developing proper technique. (scales, chords, basic music theory etc). The learning environment will be laid back and fun, with the student and teacher setting goals together, and reasonable expectations will be held for both the student and teacher.

Jean will ask what it is in particular that the student is wanting to learn, and will seek to develop curriculum centered around the student's goals. Weekly practice (5 days a week, 20-30 minutes a day) will be the encouraged minimum. This will vary slightly depending on individual student needs.

Students will have the opportunity to learn to play music by composers such as Mozart and Bach. They can also learn how to play movie soundtracks, tunes from their favorite Broadway or Disney songs, and more! Vocal students will have the opportunity to learn show tunes, Italian arias, German songs, praise and worship songs, their favorites from musicals, and more.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in living room with piano.

*** Specialties ***

Jean has been wonderful with my son. He’s only 5 years old but she is very patient and works well with him to get him to understand what he’s doing.

Jean is a phenomenal teacher! My 14 year old son Ethan had started lessons with her 6 months ago and with her guidance he has learned piano super fast. He looks forward so much to going and is making excellent progress. Jean is engaging and complimentary to my son, and she is an all around excellent teacher! We Highly Recommend her !

Dion likes you and feels he is learning from you! I just have to get him a real paino to practice on. Thank you, hopefully in the future I can increase his lesson times maybe to twice a week. Lisa (Dions Mom)
