About Mark

Learning music, especially at a young age, can have a positive impact in life. From simply playing music in the home to performing music for large audiences, the basic goal is the same: the enjoyment of being a proficient musician. I have written a bit about my experience and how I can use this to help you to become a great musician. I began studying music when I was 8 years old. My early lessons taught me not only about music but about music teaching. As a result of these experiences, I vowed to teach students music that is meaningful to them. Moving along, in high school I played in rock bands with my friends. I can never stress how important it is to play with other people. I always encourage my students to ...

Mark has been great! I don't fit easily into a student level because I have had some piano training before -- but not in a long time. He has picked up very quickly on my skill level and has been very good about letting me pick my own music and helping me to learn. I feel that I am progressing as fast--or eve faster--than I had hoped. I highly recommend him for piano!

Philip V. Sewell, NJ

As a musician of more than 20 years, there's nothing I love more than helping my students to experience the joy of learning music! We'll build a solid understanding of techniques and theory, and along the way we'll learn songs you love!

About Philip

I graduated from Berklee College of Music with a degree in music production and engineering. I am a keyboardist of more than 20 years, and I love being able to impart the gift of music to others, whether that involves piano technique, music theory, or recording lessons. *** Lesson Details *** I have one philosophy with regard to my lessons: on the whole, they must be enjoyable. If that's not there, the motivation will not be there. While there's work involved in learning music, I strive to focus on songs my students are interested in and supplement that with the necessary practicing techniques. *** Studio Equipment *** Keyboards: Yamaha Motif ES8, Nord Electro 3; Recording Software: Pro Tools 11, Sonar X1 *** Travel Equipment *** Customarily I provide the initial notebook ...

Philip is an excellent teacher--he communicates well, is very professional, friendly, patient with children, and has excellent credentials. He teaches my granddaughter, who can be a little chatterbox, but Philip handles her very well. I would highly recommend him for anyone.
Mary W. Medford, NJ

my youngest, Daniella , is 3. and Faith just turned 4. And I have three beginning seniors who chose this as their new retirement hobby! I currently teach out of 7 different method books (I so like the variety and find a specific method geared toward your specific needs.) Recitals and performances are very important to me, however not required. Even attending and observing can be very educational and motivating. Many of my students register for a longer lesson and combine voice and accompanying with their piano lesson. And you let me know of a song/piece you wish to learn and we can make that happen! Performances coming up include outdoor concert September 18 and a Halloween recital end of October....costumes encouraged!

About Mary

Music degree from Lawrence University and Conservatory in Appleton, WI. Graduate work in conducting, piano, and vocal pedagogy at Westminster Choir College in Princeton. Also certified in Kindermusik for ages newborn to 7. My studio, since 1993 is located in the back of my house and is in a family friendly location. As my education originally was music education, elementary and secondary, I have gone on to be certified in teaching adults, both beginning and returning. There is so much piano and vocal educational material geared to the pre-school, the elementary, Jr-Sr high and Adult beginner and I promise we will have fun while learning..... Anyone can learn an instrument and anyone can learn many different styles. Lessons will be geared toward your interests and goals, ...

Mary is very knowledgeable and personable. She gives excellent instruction and gentle correction in a way that makes you want to do your best in every aspect of the learning process. Mary is also very attentive to your needs and your development as a student. She knows when to allow for the errors that a beginner like myself will make, and when to present challenges that will push you, and show you that your skill and talent are growing. She also gives homework assignments that will help you grow your talent when you're in between lessons, which I really appreciate. I absolutely recommend Mary to anyone wishing to take music lessons!

Ethan R. Philadelphia, PA

Why do I teach piano?

Because it has been the greatest source of enjoyment, rejuvenation, and continued growth throughout my life, and I want to share that with everyone I can.

Why should you or your child take piano lessons with me?

Because I offer highly specialized lessons to each student, dependent on their needs and goals so that you too can benefit from a life filled with music. I offer lessons in many styles and supply all students with practical musical knowledge that will lead to full understanding and appreciation.

For young beginner students, students can expect to learn piano basics (note names, chords, etc.) and musical fundamentals, soon moving into learning full songs.

About Ethan

Whether I am playing salsa, solo classical piano, in a jazz ensemble, or a concert band, I am ALWAYS having fun doing what I love, and I want you to have the same experience. After moving to Philadelphia five years ago to study at Temple University, where I received my Bachelor of Music in Jazz Performance, I have had many great opportunities to play all types of music with all types of people. While my passions are in jazz music, composing, and arranging, my varied experience helps me pass on the fundamentals necessary to becoming a great musician while also adapting to your goals, needs, and musical preferences. *** Lesson Details *** I want you to have a fun, loving relationship with music. I aim for students to leave each lesson eager to practice and explore, and to come back ...
