I craft a unique blend of traditional, technical and modern instruction. I also encourage my students to compose, arrange and record their own music using composition and scoring software such as Musescore. I tailor their repertoire toward their own needs and tastes, while endeavoring to broaden their (and my!) exposure to all genre of piano literature. Above all, I am a firm believer that piano instruction should (no, MUST!) be fun, yet disciplined. I take an interest in all aspects of my student's lives, and endeavor as much as possible to connect personally with student and family.

About Jeff P.

Like many of you, I began formal piano training at the age of 6. That was 60 years ago, and so I have played just about every style of music in the books (including Mario Bros. and Star Wars Theme!). For some of you, I have been playing since your grandparents were kids like you, and for others, since you were kids. My formal training includes lessons at the Julliard School of Music through receiving my Bachelors of Music in Applied Piano from the Ithaca College School of Music in 1977. I love all styles of music, from Beethoven, Bach and Chopin, to jazz greats like Bill Evans and even anime, hip-hop and electronica. One thing I love to do with my students is set them on the road to composing their own music, using scoring software known as MuseScore 3. But make no mistake, I insist on two things: learning to read music and practice, practice, practice! I guarantee you though, learning to play piano is far more fun than you have ever dreamed. So let's get started, shall we?
