About Kevin P.

Hi, I've been teaching lessons piano lessons since 1984 and have had good success teaching kids and adults of all ages. I teach a solid classical foundation, but always supplement lessons with music you want to learn...whether it be pop, show tunes, hymns & hymn improvisation, etc. I performed in my first professional engagement when I was 11 and have been pianist for Classical concerts & recitals, Church services, revivals, weddings, funerals, corporate events and every gig you'd ever hire a pianist for. I love teaching and would love to help customize a program of study for you and equip you with the skills you need for music-making!

Kevin taught me piano for four years. In that time, I learned he both holds his students to high standards of excellence while also making lessons fun. His amazing talent coupled with his great sense of humor and love for people made for an enjoyable experience. However, his students gain more than a pleasant experience and basic skills. Learning notes and rhythm is half the job, the other half is making it musical. Kevin excels in imparting this to his students and is a joy to know. He's the best!

Kevin Pollock is a very dynamic teacher and performer! He loves people and has a delightful personality that makes working with him a joy! It is impressive to hear one of his young elementary school students play a Bach Invention with ease. His passion for music is contagious! His work ethic and standards for excellence are top shelf. I highly recommend him as a teacher for any age student of the piano.

I highly recommend Kevin as a piano teacher. I studied piano for years and wanted my children to be grounded in good fundamentals. Kevin excels at teaching good technique, theory, and practice habits. He assigns music that supports a students level but also challenges them to master pieces that are difficult for them through slow and repetitive practice. He does all that while making it fun. My children love the piano and that’s entirely because of Kevin. He’s the best!

Wish I could rate Kevin a 10! Kevin is a breath of fresh air, sharing his love of the piano with those who want to learn. His encouragement, patience, manner and fun personality make the learning process a joy. I would recommend Kevin for any age student though I began lessons in my retirement. From talking to younger students and parents I know they have the same wonderful experience with Kevin. Can’t imagine a better teacher anywhere!

Kevin's approach to teaching piano is customized per student. He instructs in such a way that his students can become master pianists. They learn to play solo as well as an accompanist to other instruments. He is great with praise but still holds high expectations for his students. He is amazing.

It’s been said, “those that can’t, teach”. From Bach to Broadway, Kevin CAN! If your goal is to learn piano, no matter your experience and/or age, your search for a teacher is over. Pianist, Musician, Accompanist, Director, and Teacher. Kevin Pollack qualifies.

Kevin is not only a fantastic musician and teacher, but he has a rapport with the children that makes it fun and challenging at the same time. We are so thankful for the years our daughter was able to learn and grow under his instruction!

We loved Kevin. He is extremely talented and knowledgeable at piano. His teaching style makes learning piano fun and exciting. I love the way he would play a duet with the boys once they learned a piece of music. I highly recommend him. He is the best !!!!

I took weekly piano lesson with Kevin for 10 years. He proved to be an excellent teacher. He was methodical in his approach. He paid attention to fundamentals, while fostering my growth in piano with pieces from a variety of periods...baroque & classical, romantic & 20th century, hymns, etudes, etc. He is truly a professional, both in performing and in teaching, in addition to being a fine human being.

I am a fellow colleague and have known Kevin for almost 30 years and would consider him to be one of the finest pianists, accompanists, choral conductors, vocal coaches and personal teachers as I have ever encountered. He has a very unique giftedness to be very personable, funny and serious while always moving towards excellence. His passion for music and education is contagious!

Kevin taught my daughter for a number of years. He is great with all ages and levels. He can take you as high as you want to go. He also makes the learning fun! Exceptional teacher and performer himself. He is one of the most musical players I know and knows how to bring that out in his students. You definitely will get your money's worth.
