About Aaron M.

Franklin, MA

View Full Profile

Hello, I've been playing piano and keyboard instruments for 25 years, and teaching for 15. More then just a teacher, I like to instill a smart and patient approach to learning. Every student has different needs and desires, and it's important to have a flexible teacher with the experience required to motivate students and play to their strengths!

About Aaron
Berklee College of Music graduate, Aaron M., has been teaching students of all ages for over 15 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 Playing/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.

About Danilo
Danilo is a multi-instrumentalist originally from Long Island, New York and currently based in Rhode Island. He has maintained an active and successful performing career as a member of the groups David Wax Museum, Debo Band, The Superpowers, Rubblebucket, Full Tang and Watchout Kompa.

Danilo studied classical trumpet performance at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, MA with members of the Boston Symphony Orchestra (Peter Chapman, Steve Emery) as well as percussion and drums with other esteemed faculty members (Rakalam Bob Moses, Jamey Haddad). In addition to his conservatory training, Danilo has studied traditional West African drumming at the Dagbe Cultural Center in Kopeyia, Ghana.

Danilo has performed at many of the premier venues and festivals throughout North America including: Bonnaroo, New Orleans Jazz Festi
val, Lincoln Center Out of Doors, Bumbershoot, Montreal Jazz Festival, Montana Folk Festival, Globalfest, SXSW and Luminato.

Education has long been a passion for Danilo and he has been teaching private music lessons as well as instruction in the Boston public schools for years. Danilo teaches all levels and ages. His students value his patience and ability to find an inspiring path to discovery for each individual. Danilo has also shown himself to be very effective in the classroom setting. He has been a general music teacher in the Boston Public School system as well as teaching master classes and clinics at music schools and universities around the country.

In January 2014, Danilo was invited as a guest artist and educator at the Afghanistan National Institute of Music in Kabul where he taught and performed for young afghan music students.

Danilo considers his success as a performer to be in a direct relationship with the success of his teaching and he aims to spread to the joy of music making and appreciation as wide as possible.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is relaxed and supportive while always aiming to increase the knowledge of the student. My strong technical background combined with a deep sense for wide-ranging musical styles allows me to find what inspires a student initially, and use their interests and strengths to lead them to new discovery and technical efficiency.

Private study covers technical aspects of the instrument, including body awareness as well as reading, theory and musical expression and improvisation.

While each individual learns at a different pace, I strive to point out the progress my students have made because I find this recognition of achievement, no matter how small, is essential in a student's continued love of studying music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
lessons in dedicated music room with all instruments and equipment; upright piano, drum set and percussion.

Danilo is a really great drum teacher. Challenging, but also meets you at what ever level you're at. When limbs don't know how to rally together for a new thing, he's a very good cheerleader until it comes together or helps make it make sense to break through that wall. Enjoys good music too. Super recommend.

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 offering lessons both in-studio and online. I hold a Bachelor of Music Degree from Berklee College of Music, where I graduated Summa cum Laude, and I have over 36 years' full-time experience as an instructor.

I also have over four decades of experience as a professional jazz, rock, and theater musician. My experience has taken me from nightclubs to concert stages to churches, as well as television studios, radio stations, and many recording studios.

Finally, I am a published author with several titles dedicated to helping musicians becoming the best they can be.

**** MY TEACHING STYLE ****

My teaching style is often referred to as laid-back, gentle, informative, and very supportive. My focus is on enrichment, encouragement, and results.

I don't work with “one-size-fits-all” methods. Ea
ch lesson is customized to make the most of each student's own unique abilities, limitations, preferences, and interests. Whether students prefer, or do better with, traditional materials, playing/singing along with their favorite recordings, improvisation, or anything in between, I am more than happy to accommodate and bring out each student’s best!

I teach real music -- students begin playing music they love almost from day-one. For example, many of my piano and guitar students pride themselves on learning to play every song on the Beatles One album ... playing right along with the CD! Reading, playing by ear, improvisation (jamming), singing while you play ... there are so many ways to play and avenues to explore in music.

**** MY STUDIO ****

My studio is spacious (very spacious – no cubicles here!), well-appointed, and very quiet. Unlike music stores and multi-lesson facilities, there are no other lessons on the premises, no drummers going crazy on the other side of the wall. This means students can concentrate better and learn faster. There is also plenty of room for parents and siblings who may wish to sit in on lessons.

**** STYLES / GENRES ****

I believe that students make the most progress learning music they love and I am very happy to teach every student the style of music he or she loves most.

My most requested genres are: pop, rock, country, blues, classic rock, jazz, and classical. Some students arrive knowing exactly what they want, but most are happy to explore various styles that interest them in search of the perfect fit. It is not at all uncommon for a student to spend part of their lesson polishing up a Beethoven piece or jazz standard, then finish up playing the chords to “Hotel California” along with the CD. Another student might start off their lesson learning a Taylor Swift hit, then move over to doing some blues improvisation. Variety is a wonderful thing and it is highly encouraged!

**** MY STUDENTS ****

Over the years, I have taught students from four years old to eighty-somethings. I’ve taught absolute beginners (most of my students start from square-one), hobbyists, seasoned professionals, even a Grammy nominee and a Grammy winner! Many of my young students have gone on to perform in school bands / jazz bands and/or professionally. In all cases, they acquire a skill that will last for a lifetime and provide joy, enrichment, and satisfaction.

Do you have a song or two in your heart? Contact me today and I will help you reach your musical goals and have a very good time doing it!

Lessons include basic note reading through advanced music theory and piano technique. 1st lesson will be an evaluation of skills and knowledge to determine level and curriculum.

About Janet
Music is every person's birthright. It's a way of knowing, a way of being. Music is multi-cultural. Music learning will open up pathways in your brain that will make it easier to learn other subjects. It provides a way of expressing yourself and an outlet for your joy and pain.

What aspects of music would you like to learn? I have taught piano and music theory for 25 years and Music Together classes for families with young children for 15 years. Currently singing A cappella, 4 part harmony with Women of Note chorus and All 4 WoN quartet. Presently studying advanced music theory and arranging as a candidate of Harmony Inc.'s contest judging program.

I have many years of experience teaching children and adults of all skill levels and abilities. Students with autism, attention deficit disorder, sensory issues and other learning d
ifferences are welcome and treated with patience, kindness and respect. I have experience with this population and have cultivated many resources and relationships with experts that guide me in teaching individuals with special needs. Every child in my program will be taught as an individual with his/her own unique learning style. Developmentally appropriate techniques will be used along with teaching strategies that cater to each child's personality and learning temperament.

Teenagers are busy people who juggle so many responsibilities. In addition to teaching their lessons and helping them to grow musically, I will provide them with practice strategies that will fit into their hectic schedules.

I also enjoy teaching adults of every skill level. There is no rush, no stress. Just the pride and excitement of learning something new. So if learning to play piano or sing has always been on your bucket list, let's tackle it together and make it happen!

Her skills continuously grow as she has explored music in many different settings such as early childhood music, piano accompaniment, and choir singing.

Fun while learning amazing tricks to playing piano! I've taught people from 3 to 93 and everyone enjoys themselves! My experience in teaching beginners all the way to expert has been a result of many years of training and teaching. I want people to enjoy music and realize how it can help them in SO many ways! It's stimulating! It's relaxing! It's SO good for the brain! I guarantee you'll have fun while learning. And I have lots of secrets to share about piano, composers and tricks to playing difficult pieces!

About Candace
Do you want to have fun? AND learn piano? Then I am the piano teacher for YOU! I've learned tricks of the trade, secrets of playing (that I'll only share with my students) and have lots of great ideas of how to help you achieve your goals.

The process of learning to play piano, or continuing to improve your skills, can be just as much fun as the end result!

We've all read how good for the brain playing piano is...using left and right sides...concrete and abstract...but let's not forget the FUN factor! I'm lucky to be able to do what I do and I can help you be so lucky, too!

I took piano lessons for 19 years and can play (and teach) classical, pop, rock, jazz, theory and composition. I've been teaching piano to students from 3 years old to 85 and they've all enjoyed themselves.

I've also had quite a bit of experience in teach
ing people with a variety of special needs. There is so much benefit to learning and playing the piano for all of us, but you can only imagine how great it is for people who have special needs.

Teaching piano is my passion and I'm excited to share it with everyone.

I started lessons with Candy in early elementary school and continued through high school. The skills I learned in piano lessons were foundational for all my music skills as I later learned to play the flute, and majored in voice in college. After 13 years as a professional music educator myself I know that the skills learned at Candy’s piano, both musical skills and teaching technique were formative for me professionally and personally. She is positive, patient, encouraging and committed to determining the learning styles of her student. Given the option, I would give her more than 5 stars.

Over the almost three years that I have been taking lessons with Candy, I have learned many new things about playing piano. She always makes it a positive experience and not only has me play the songs from the book, but also lets me learn some songs that I choose. Also, she is funny and always makes me laugh. Overall I would rate Candy 5 stars without question.

My name is Christine and I am a piano performance major at University of Rhode Island. I am a classical pianist, very advanced in music theory and I can also read sheet music very well and fast. I have been playing piano for 16 years and taught by various professors from Hong Kong, Massachusetts and Rhode Island. I also have intermediate knowledge in jazz piano and would be able to teach that as well.
I like to be able to expand your music knowledge as well as making you a better pianist. In order to expand your knowledge, I will teach you various things in music theory that will help you have a better understanding of what you are playing. Music theory is part of the lesson, so please don't be alarmed that you aren't playing piano for the entire lesson.
If you allow me, I will do to the best of my ability to fulfill your musical potential.

About Christine
Hi! I am Christine. I am a very goal-oriented person and I believe that practice makes perfect. I am a professional pianist who is currently focusing on classical but I can play or teach any genre.

I have worked with vocalists, chamber ensembles, to a full orchestra and many more. I started playing piano at a young age of 5, and discovered a sincere passion for this instrument being taught by world-class musicians. As I grew older, I grew a much deeper appreciation into the theory which has allowed me to understand music SO MUCH MORE! I would love to share my skills and knowledge with you, hoping to make you the best player you can be and develop the passion that I have developed for the piano.

My availability is very flexible, however, I can commute to anywhere reasonable in order to teach you. For intermediate to advanced pianists
, a binder is required to each and every lesson.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you and I look forward to meeting and working with you.
