First off, I want to mention something that potential Philadelphian students should be aware of. I can only go to certain sections of the city, and I can only give you lessons on weekday afternoons between 12-2pm. Sorry, no evening classes. I'll need time to travel between New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Actually, I prefer students in South Jersey. Those students can have lessons in my available time frame.

Now, a little about myself.
Are you looking for a great tutor? I'm the one you've been looking for.

I've had more than 3 years of tutoring experience in the following subjects:

* Computers (Java, general topics, C++, C, HTML, application programming, and others)
* Math (from elementary math to algebra)
* Piano (from basic to more advanced)
* Guitar (from theory to more advanced)

I've had favorable reviews from my former clients, and I'll have competitive low rates as well. What are you waiting for?

I am a beginner, but because of Larry's different method of teaching music theory, it was easy for me to understand the fundamentals of music scales and consequently the origin of the chords and how they are formed. Larry goes the extra mile to make sure that you capture and understand the concepts.
Thank you!

Larry P has been an excellent starter piano teacher for my son. In 10 months my son is able to understand music and is on the road to being more confident in his ability to play the piano. Larry is patient and has a firm grasp on music concepts that he can easily transfer to any student who wants to learn.
