Private Piano Teacher

I have been giving lessons since 2006, and I have seen music enrich the lives of many in countless ways. Whether you are looking for a new hobbie, a new passion, or for something to keep your kids engaged and busy, learning an instrument has endless benefits both long term and short.
I will make a personalized lesson plan based on 2 big questions: why do you want to take lessons? Where do you want to be at the end of it?
Lets go from there.

About Rachel

I was active in school bands in addition to taking private lessons throughout grade school. In high school I was a member of Tri-M (a musical honor society)

He has a good ear and can help quickly with transcriptions. More importantly, he also gave some practical advice.

My son enjoys his music lessons with Jonathan, who is infinitely patient teaching what can be a challenging instrument. My son responds well to Jonathan's instruction, and he appreciates having access to a professional performer as a teacher. Jonathan encourages my son to learn a variety of music, including both challenging classical pieces and more recognizable popular and jazz pieces, which helps to sustain his interest in the lessons.

Specifically: KEYBOARDS. Forget boring lessons! I can show you my Method to make playing & creating FUN and efficient regardless your skill level! Whether you want to learn the real thing or just bought the latest synthesizer, there are certain techniques and approaches I have found in the past 30+ years to work like DYNAMITE -- IF... someone shows you a new way of playing. I have not only taught myself by ear but have over the years successfully taught many students my Method of getting good on a keyboard. I do not approach lessons in the "traditional" sense beyond proper posture and common sense ways to avoid injury. I get to the core of learning to play the instrument in a way that is EASY, FUN, and incredibly TO-THE-POINT! If your goal is NOT to be a classically trained pianist, but rather: you want to learn to EXPRESS yourself on ANY keyboard you have available to you in a way that is stress-free, inspiring, and efficient... you've found your new Maestro!

Great lessons, I have had 8 or 9 lessons and already working on James Bond theme song! Great way to learn by giving your fingers knowledge of the cords and various tempos. Fun and learning. Now as Mark says instead of practice, “go catch some fun”

My first lesson with Mark was amazing. Very knowledgeable and intuitive. He was very relaxed and made me feel right at home.

"I began my piano lessons at Mr. Yakov's Music School when I was in fourth grade. Since then, I have progressed far in my piano studies. When I first started taking piano lessons, I thought it was going to be hard and tedious, and that it would take up too much of my time. However, just by practicing fifteen minutes a day, I was able to get through Piano: Primer Level (my first piano book) in a matter of months! I’m not saying that piano is easy, just that you don’t have to spend hours each day to learn how to play. Also, I feel that taking piano lessons has given me something to improve upon and work toward. I feel more motivated to learn songs that I like to play and to display my skills to my family and friends. Sometimes, I play for my family while they are eating dinner, like a mini-concert. Overall, I highly recommend taking music lessons to anyone, at any age. Music lessons have greatly improved my life as a rewarding and entertaining experience.
