Always wanted to learn to play piano? Now is the time!

Hi, my name is Jerry and I am an experienced, patient, gentle teacher, with over 20 years teaching and performing experience. I teach all ages, beginners to more advanced students. Learn to read musical notation, chord symbols and play by ear. Learn your favorite songs.

I have a B.A. in Music Education and plenty of real world experience.
• Private teaching: Scores of students over the last 20 years.
• Public School System: Over 5 years teaching music (K-12) in the Chicago area.
• Performance: Decades as a band member, leader and solo performer. I have worked with Herbie Hancock, Mary Wells, Greg Kihn and Jessie Colin Young, to name a few.
• I am currently performing every Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday from 6-9 p.m. at Woody’s Steakhouse in Madison. Stop by and say hello. I’d love to talk with you.

Self-motivation is your greatest ally. I want to help you become motivated and fall in love with the piano.

Beginners can expect to work from “method books”. There are a number of authors available and all are designed to help in learning musical notation, theory, vocabulary, technique, etc. I like to add selections from my own library and encourage the use of various web sites that offer free chord charts, lyrics and tutorials on learning a specific song.

Make 2017 the year you finally learn to play! Music is a beautiful mystery waiting to be unraveled. Let’s get started!

We absolutely LOVE Jerry! My 10 yr. old daughter has been taking lessons with Jerry for 2 years now and my 8 year old son has been taking lessons for one year. My daughter has advanced so much and she loves to play. She says what she likes most is that Jerry is very patient and he is very kind and understanding. My son learns in a completely different way than my daughter and Jerry has mastered both of their personalities. Almost anything goes with my daughter but my son loses interest quickly. One day Jerry showed up with Star Wars music. We haven't been able to keep him off the piano since. He will get up before school in the morning and practice. Best experience ever!!!

Jerry is very personable, and knowledgeable. He shows Nash new kinds of music all the time. They have really hit it off. Jerry is a good person, and he's become a friend.

My 9 year old daughter has been taking lessons with Jerry for almost one year now. This year we have added our 7 year old son. My children ABSOLUTELY LOVE Jerry. Last Christmas she was playing Christmas songs for the entire family and everybody loved it. He is patient and my kids look forward to each lesson. I would highly recommend him to anybody who wants their kids to have fun and learn something as beautiful as playing the piano.

Jerry has been great with my 9-year-old daughter. She is a beginner, and he has gone at her pace, and been encouraging without over-praising her. He is playful and friendly, and is consistently on time.

I am so glad to be able to leave a comment about Jerry S. I can't believe that we could be this blessed to find a teacher such as Jerry S.! we have been more than impressed. Thanks TakeLessons! You guys matched us up perfect! He has been on time for every lesson and gets right into the lesson with a joyful smile, making the girls feel very comfortable while they learn. Jerry is an inspiration to both my girls. He is an incredible teacher! I took lessons for 8 years and never looked forward to practicing or seeing my piano teacher like my girls do with Jerry. This means a lot to me as a parent who wants to see their children actually enjoy learning an instrument, and because of him....they really enjoy it more than they even did before. Getting them to practice now is not even a problem. This alone says a lot. He is very patient and kind. Best of all....Jerry is making piano fun for my girls while not missing any of the fundamentals of the piano. Oh! Even though he is humble...The man can play! You should hear him! Wow!Way to go TakeLessons! Thank you very much!
