Teaches students:
Ages 5+ and special needs

Teaching since:
August 1976

Hello! I have been teaching for over 30 years, having taught students from age 5 ( the earliest I will teach, based on general growth of independence and dexterity of the fingers) to 81 ! One gentleman at the gentle age of 74 ( never taken lessons before) wanted to learn As Time Goes By. He DID within a year!!
I am classically trained and include piano classics in my pedagogy. Every student of mine will know Fur Elise by Beethoven, plus other works by Bach, Mozart, and even Gershwin!
BUT
I strive to make the lesson fun and will urge my students, as I have been doing for my entire career, to improve daily, and realize the wonder of their musical accomplishments! I use my sense of humor to push my students along, always with positive reenforcement. I will be stern when necessary, but very seldom need to.
So, when do we start achieving YOUR goals?

Jerry was my daughter's piano teacher for over four years, and he not only helped her develop as a musician but he did so in a way that made it fun for her. He had her playing a wide variety of genres, keeping it interesting but also challenging at the same time. And just as important, Jerry was both a mentor and a friend. She often came home from her lesson and showed us a technique or new piece they were working on, but just as often, eager to share a story that Mr. Jerry told her.

Jerry was my daughters first piano teacher, she loved him from the very start! Jerry is very knowledgeable of music, energetic, patient, and has such a positive disposition in his teaching methods. She always looked forward to her lessons with him and he taught her a very solid foundation of piano that she still uses in her piano playing today.
