Private Music Theory Teacher

As a musician and composer, music theory has been an important asset to my musical identity. With a great introduction in high school, followed by a bachelor's degree worth of course work, and personal application with songwriting/composing, I have been able to build a fundamental understanding of what makes music work. Lessons can cover anything from song writing to college level theory/analysis tutoring. Understanding theory is an integral part of being a good musician, and when understood, can boost your musicianship to the next level.

About Eli

One of the great things about being a bassist is that you can play with a lot of different groups. From jazz combos and rock bands, to bluegrass bands and string quintets, the bass can be an integral part of each. For me, learning and playing many different types of music has added to the joy of be

Super cool guy. A lesson with Eli is the perfect blend of his knowledge, expertise, patience, and overall chill. 5 stars all the way.
Justin
Eli is professional, courteous, & patient. All qualities that make him a good instructor. We are very satisfied & glad our son enjoys his lessons.
Zack Botkin
If you are looking for an excellent bass teacher, look no further. You would be wasting your time. I've had a number of music instructors over the years, and I can easily say that Eli ranks at or near the top of that list.

Eli knew exactly where to start with me... he truly has an amazing ability to gauge where the student's level of knowledge is, and tailor the lesson exactly to that. Within a few lessons, I had improved my form tremendously. We covered everything that I wanted to learn, and wasted no time on things that I already knew.

What's more, a few of the instructors I have had in the past came off as a bit elitist and snobby. Eli is one of the most genuine guys around. He'll guide the lesson at your own pace, always willing to pause and show you something a second, third, or fourth time... At no point do you ever feel like you are going to ask a dumb question. This is a crucial trait of a good instructor, and Eli definitely has that going for him.

He is also quite accommodating. We typically do Skype lessons, but one there was one time that his room mate had made a slight miscalculation in the internet bill, which resulted in no internet that day. Rather than let that stop him, he actually brought his bass and amplifier on the bus, and came to my apartment to give me the lesson in person. He will make sure you get your lesson, one way or another.

My only regret is that I don't have a 6th star to give the guy! I definitely recommend him to anyone looking to learn how to play the bass guitar.

Mr. Jerry is the best piano teacher I have ever had. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He is well versed in music and has wealth of knowledge relating to the piano. I have been one of his students for 3+ years. He is wonderful and has a great sense of humor. Thank you Mr. Jerry for your dedication. If you are considering piano, then check out Mr. Jerry.
Michelle B.
My daughter has been taking lessons with Jerry for over 5 years now and my son has been taking lessons for over 3 years. Every year around Christmas time we host a piano recital at our home where all the students get together and play for family and friends. Every student gets to shine and it is such a great time! If you are looking for more than just a piano teacher then you have just found the perfect guy :)
I think he has students that range from age 7 to 70!
We love Jerry, he is part of our family and my kids absolutely love having him as a teacher!
Kristin B.
1000% Satisfied! Highly Recommend To Anyone!
Jerry is a very skilled pianist and phenomenal piano instructor! Don't let his reasonable rates fool you into thinking that the quality of his teaching is anything less than spectacular. He thoroughly enjoys teaching piano lessons and music theory in many genres to people of all ages, paces himself to assist in your level of understanding, and makes learning to play the piano fun.
My eight year old daughter got a keyboard for Christmas so I decided to get her piano lessons to accompany her new instrument. I began searching for a local piano teacher who was reasonably priced, yet, also experienced with teaching children, and I couldn't have found a better person to do so than Jerry S!
My child had been previously diagnosed with ADHD and ODD so she tends to be very distracted, rambunctious, inquisitive, and defiant at times, however, it's never seemed to phase Jerry at all. He was open minded and seemingly very understanding of her condition. He is very friendly, easy going individual who has always been extremely patient with my child, despite her occasional outbursts.
In conclusion, I honestly feel that we are truly fortunate (and blessed) to have found such an amazing piano instructor, for an affordable rate, who's patient and keeps the student engaged, while also making it a fun filled learning experience to play the piano!

Very professional and innovative techniques that guarantee success!
Welcker
Laura has been a great teacher for my 6 year-old daughter (starting taking lessons when she was 5). She is endlessly patient and has a perfect balance of fun and instruction in all her lessons. She helped us every step of the way--picking out the right rental instrument, finding extra workbooks that would be fun, coming up with ways to make practicing at home enticing. Laura is made to be a fiddle teacher--she has a obvious passion both for the music and sharing it with her students. My daughter left every lesson with Laura beaming with pride. I'd recommend anyone searching for a teacher to go with Laura!

"My middle-school aged son did a two hour session with Dr. Darrell one day where I would venture to say they covered a month's worth of music theory material. After a while I got tired listening to it, but my son didn't. Darrell is patient yet firm, tough but caring. The pairing of Darrell's deep knowledge with a student who wants to learn is a powerful combination. He is committed to the success of his students."
