Piano Lessons in unique because I have the discipline of a highly educated musician, but the critical thinking skills of a modern day entrepreneur.

I am a regularly performing musician who has memorized hundreds of songs and pieces, making it easy to train any student on the fly. Teaching lessons is NOT just learning notes on the page, it is playing music by ear, understating how music works, and understanding how the student learns.

Has your ex piano teacher made you learn pieces that you didn't want to learn and now you're looking for a new instructor? Look no further as you have come to the right place. I teach exactly what you want to learn, whether it be classical music or a pop song you just heard on Spotify. I've comfortably taught students ranging from the ages of 8-60, so don't be afraid to start at a later age!

"I was hesitant to start piano lessons but David has been amazing. He's an extremely friendly and patient teacher but the thing that has me rank him so highly is the fact that he always celebrated my successes and never berated for not getting as far as we hoped. For me that was important in an instructor. Also he is totally fine with me bringing in music to learn even if it isn't always the best stuff to learn from.
In short David is the kind of teacher that makes each lesson enjoyable and really helps you learn what's important to you. He has 35 years of experience so you can throw just about anything at him and he'll know what you're talking about. I can't recommend him enough if you are looking for a piano teacher in person."

"Truly "wonderful"

My two children, an 8 year old boy and 6 year old girl, have been taking paino lessons from Farobag since March 2013. We weren't sure how my son, being all about typical "boy" things would be with paino lessons, however, he has done amazing. I was raised with piano, in that it helps to further coordinate the brains development and how it processes information generally speaking. I can only say that my children cannot appear to take their shoes off as quick as they'd like at the start of each piano lesson. I wanted to find a teacher who would be able to truly reach and further develop my children's musical apptitude to learning. Farobag has truly done that. I almost hesitate to share this information, because my husband and I feel like Farobag is our little secret, that if word gets out we won't be able to get lessons when we want them. However, it is that which we know other parents would love to find for their children and adults. I know he teaches other instruments as well. As a Mom, I truly couldn't be happier. My husband, not having the same upbringing I did with music, wasn't quite sure about piano lessons. However, even he is truly amazed at how much they have learned as well as how eager they are to deomonstrate it. He has seen how much of a benefit it has been for our children."

How to Improve Your Left Hand When Playing Piano

“Why won’t this hand work?” is something every piano teacher has heard students  say in exasperation. The left hand is often a source of deep frustration for pianists for two main reasons:  1.) Roughly 90% of the world is right-handed. Are you one of them? 2.) Piano music tends to be right hand oriented. Unless you are naturally a “southpaw,” you will, as a matter of fact, struggle more  with your left hand. However, there is hope!  First, it bears exploring some caveats t …

What Piano Pedals Do + How to Use Them to Sound Like a Pro

Piano pedals are levers which alter the sound of the piano in a variety of different ways. The three types of pedals most pianos have are, from right to left: a sustain pedal, a sostenuto pedal, and a soft pedal. Note: Some digital keyboards may only have one - the sustain pedal - which you can plug into the keyboard. As you get more comfortable at the piano, you may start to wonder about these three pedals at the bottom. What do the pedals on a piano do? You'll find the answers in t …
