I have taught private piano to a student in Athol, Massachusetts who continued on to Berklee College of Music, where he graduated.
I am a singer/songwriter/keyboardist who has 2 albums out, appeared on Comedy Central, MTV, on ABC National Television, and "The Jimmy Kimmel Live Show." I was on National Public Radio(NPR), on the BBC in London, England and my song "In Canada", which is covered by another music group "The Suspects" is featured in a film, "Montana Amazon" starring Haley Joel Osmond, Alison Brie and Olympia Dukakis.

*** Lesson Details ***
I generally use the Schirmer and Thompson books for piano lessons. I don't consider myself strict but I do expect students to practice at least an hour a day.
3-6 months I do expect them to be able to start playing the piano and to know their notes and their locations.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The studio is in a music room in the home with an upright piano w seating available.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can go out and buy the books

Jeanne is a fantastic teacher

Jeanne is a great person and very easy to communicate with and I personally think that makes for a nice teacher/student relationship. I can ask her questions and she explains things very well. I feel in the 4 short weeks I have been working with her that she has taught me quite a bit. Each week I leave there with something new to challenge myself with. I would highly recommend Jeanne as she is a wonderful piano teacher. Thank you Jeanne. I look forward to this journey of learning.
