Aaron M.

Franklin, MA

I've been playing piano and keyboard instruments for 30 years, and teaching for 12.

About Aaron

Berklee College of Music graduate, Aaron M., has been teaching students of all ages for over 12 years.
"I love watching young musicians grow into seasoned players and have had tremendous success with all my students. I believe that learning songs and playing music is a critical element in the learning process of becoming a good drummer/pianist, and musician. This is why I bring a powered PA speaker, mp3 player, and (sometimes) a guitar to my lessons for the student to play along with and learn familiar songs. Over the years I've learned to strike a balance between Reading/Rudiments and P
laying/having fun, so as to maintain students interests and growth."

My boys, ages 7 & 5, started piano lessons with Aaron a year ago. He has taught them technique & theory all while using songs they boys love. There are days that the boys are not the most cooperative. Aaron is amazingly patient and persistent in getting the boys to do their lessons. I really appreciate and have learned from this patience when it comes to the nightly practicing. I am pleased that the boys have been working with a male teacher and I think it really helps them relate to the music and the lessons. If you are looking for a patient yet knowledgeable piano teacher, I would definitely recommend Aaron.

Beau S.

Attleboro, MA

I teach important musicianship skills as well as proper technique and relevant music theory.

About Beau

I studied music performance at UMass Dartmouth. I have the tools and resources to teach the students what they need to know in order to teach themselves. In lessons, I focus on what the student wants to learn.
I am a big fan of applying relevant elements of music theory in with the music we're learning: it helps to understand the science behind the music. Noticing patterns and learning common terminology will make it easier to learn and play with other musicians.

*** Lesson Details ***
I can teach at my house in Attleboro as well as come to you.

Stan M.

Coventry, RI

As my piano student, you will learn so much! I do not work from traditional "cookie cutter" methods; each lesson is customized to take advantage of your own unique interests and abilities. Even if you are just starting out, you will quickly move beyond basic note reading to mastering popular sheet music by your favorite artists in your favorite genres. You will also have the opportunity to explore vocal accompaniment, improvisation, and/or playing the real piano parts along with recordings of your favorite songs. I hold a B.M. degree from Berklee College of Music and I have been teaching piano and performing throughout southern New England for more than three decades. I look forward to helping you achieve your musical goals and dreams on the piano!

About Stan

Hi! I am a private music instructor with a B.M. degree from Berklee College of Music and over 33 years' full-time experience in the field. I also have decades of experience as a professional jazz, rock, and theater musician. My teaching style is laid-back and gentle. My focus is on enrichment and encouragement. I don't work with one-size-fits-all methods. Each lesson is customized to make the most of each student's own unique abilities and interests. I am very experienced in working with students of all ages, including very young children (ages 4 and up). I teach real music -- students begin p
laying music they love almost from day-one. For example, many of my piano and guitar students pride themselves on learning to play the every song on Beatles One ... playing right along with the CD! Reading, playing by ear, improvisation, singing while you play ... there are so many ways to play and avenues to explore in music. Do you have a song or two in your heart. Contact me today!

I started taking lesson from Stan when I was 12 and I absolutely love his teaching style! It's a very personalized lesson that's centered around what you want to learn and your pace and style of learning it. I've been taking guitar and piano lessons from him for three years now, and he's very knowledgeable and experienced in both subjects and offers great advice. His recitals are very fun, a great performing experience, and an opportunity to meet his other students that share the same interests as you. He really seems to genuinely care about your progress.

As an educator with over 40 years of experience, I can easily tell when someone is a wonderful teacher. And Stan is certainly an outstanding instructor! He clearly and patiently explains, demonstrates, and models whatever skill is being taught. His students love him for his kind and caring personality, as well as for the wealth of musical knowledge he passes on. I learned so much from him, and looked forward to every lesson!

Abbe M.

Franklin, MA

I am the mother of a special needs child, so I have a lot of patience teaching children with special needs. I like to use humor when I teach. I tailor the lesson content to the desires of the student. I teach classical and pop music. I have been teaching for over 25 years. I have end of year music festivals which are optional. My primary goal is for my students to have fun while developing self confidence making music they love.

About Abbe

I have been teaching piano for over 25 years. I like to use humor when I teach. I teach classical and pop music. I am the mother of a child with Asperger's Syndrome, so I am comfortable teaching children with learning disabilities like ADHD and OCD. I minored in piano performance at the University of Rhode Island.

Dueling Piano Bars 101: Popular Songs for Piano to Request
If you haven’t heard of dueling piano bars yet, you will soon!

Being a piano player may seem like a very solitary way to go about learning an instrument. As a piano student, you may yearn to make music with others, and if you're naturally drawn toward group music making, it may be that you already study an orchestral instrument, or sing with a choir.
