Wonderful, great experience!
Very satisfied

Super Knowledgable. Psyched to learn more.
Dennis
Derek is a very knowledgable instructor, easy to talk to, and I found his teaching technique is very motivating. He set realistic practice goals for the next session, which will require me to do my part, but that's the reason we show up, to learn how to play a musical instrument.
I highly recommend him.

Online Piano Teacher

What you'll expect is a mix of sight reading, technique learning and playing, book performance and improvisation by ear for each lesson in the style the student wishes to learn about. If needed, I also write individual exercises tailored to each student and their practice routine. I teach them all of the major, minor and modal scales, chords, arpeggios, proper hand positioning and fingering. I teach many ages, especially beginners up to level 5 in piano levels.

"A gifted teacher for teaching Piano Lessons

Mary has inspired my daughter Joanne to want to play piano. She has a way of balancing what the kids like to play and what the parents want in a music lesson for their kids. Joanne has not lost interest like we thought she might, but has wanted to Accelerate learning piano. She gets them playing music right away and then little by little explains more and more about music itself. It is an all-around winning strategy, especially when teaching kids.
Thank Mary"
