Piano is a fun and easy instrument to learn! If you are a beginner, you will begin by learning the basics of piano and music in general, including musical notation. Soon, (with practice), you will have the skills to play your favorite songs. I will teach you at a pace that fits your individual needs. I will help you stay focused, without making you feel pressed. (My students often tell me how patient I am.)

I have been teaching music lessons since 1983, and full-time since 1996, and through the years I have taught over 600 students. I teach children and adults, beginner to advanced levels. I teach most styles including classical, jazz, rock, blues and more. I love teaching beginners, either children or adults, as much as I enjoy teaching advanced students who are looking to expand their skill set. I am the author of
The Piano Guide Book, a piano method for adults.

I received my musical education at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Ma, and by gigging throughout New England for over 40 years playing concerts, weddings, parties, dives, etc. I have also authored books on guitar, and have released 6 albums under my own name, mostly jazz & blues.
