About Maxwell C.

My 1-on-1 elite instruction will enable you to learn in six months what may otherwise take 5 to 10 years. I mentor because I love facilitating the enjoyment of music. It's not inherently obvious how to enjoy the learning process of music, so I aim to make the process as smooth and intuitive as possible for my students. I teach principles of music through a combination of recommended repertoire along with music suggested by the student. I create a custom curriculum for each student. I am currently studying with Andy Wasserman, a protegé of George Russell: the teacher of Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Bill Evans, and Ornette Coleman. My instruction aims to promote the process of active listening and the curiousity of my students, so they can grow into more sensitive and creative individuals.

Max is fantastic! He has taught my two boys, now ages 7 and 9 for over a year. He engages each one differently, based on his interests. He mixes in creativity with skills, practice and music theory. My kids are learning a lot in a low pressure environment.

Max has been teaching piano to my kids, ages 12 and 10, for almost three years. He has an excellent manner with kids and is particularly strong in teaching music theory. I have also been taking guitar from him for almost two years! He is always professional and prepared.

I highly recommend Max. In addition to being an excellent teacher from both curriculum and musical talent standpoints, he really understands the importance of teaching a connection to music. He has taught both of my daughters, 13 and 7, for several years. After struggling with two different piano teachers' inability to teach my kids a love for music and focus on rigidity (did not align with my goals), it was a gift to find Max and see my girls develop a love for music. He is patient and an excellent influence on my girls, too, as they often talk to him about life during lessons. Additionally, Max's energy is so pleasant (big when you have someone in your home!) and he is a clear communicator.
