Columbus, OH

About Jimmy

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will bring my own guitar and amp

*** Specialties ***
I am fluent in every possible style. At some point I have performed in every type of band and expose my students to many different styles and techniques. I recently got off tour with a country band from Nashville, but have performed jazz, metal, rock, blues, soul, classical, fusion. I specialize in those students who really want to put in the time to seriously learn their instrument, but if you want to have fun just playing by the campfire that's cool too. I'm cool, laid back and love a good laugh. I have taug
ht hundreds of students on all levels and styles over the years and to answer your question yes anyone can play if they invest the time needed to learn and yes you are gonna have clumsy fingers from the start. lol

After a month studying under Jimmy my guitar skills have skyrocketed. I didn't realize how much I was stuck on a plateau until I compare recordings from a month ago. Jimmy has assisted me in reaching new levels of lead guitar and knowledge of theory so that I am now playing lead roles and improvising beyond what I thought capable. I have the technique, skills and self confidence to take lead with my band, and my fellow band members have all asked what my secret has been in my phrasing and solo's; the secret is simple a great instructor and structured practice. Now my practice time is much more productive. Jimmy really understands how to custom teach and improve weaknesses I was unable to even understand without his help. Thanks Jimmy for helping me reach new goals and my true potential.

After 2 lessons with Jimmy I have improved on my overall technique and cleaning up my tones as well increased speed; more progress than past two months. Jimmy is extremely knowledgeable and takes you to the next level. If you listen to his instruction and do the practice time you will improve. I'll be so much more prepared for my next gig. Thanks Jimmy!

Brad Allen has been teaching both my sons, 9 and 11 years old, for the past 3 years. He is very patient and the children seem to respond very well to his calm demeanor. They love going to piano class, this is one thing I don't have to fight about, and they are always happy to practice at home. They have come a long way with his instruction and has been able to keep them motivated and excited about learning to play the piano. We are very lucky to have found him as a teacher.

Brad is an excellent piano teacher. I have watched him guide my 9-year-old son over a two year period. My son know has a strong musical foundation in piano he can apply to other instruments. Brad has a very relaxed and calm demeanor. He guides students in a subtle way, so they take ownership of their learning and maintain motivation. Most importantly, Brad's personality creates a stress-free learning environment. This is crucial for children to maintain a love and passion for music. Brad is very encouraging, warm and cares about the students he teaches. I highly recommended him to parents who want to instill a love of music in their children!

Our son has taken piano lessons from Mr. Allen for 3 years. He started when he was 6 years old. Mr. Allen uses praise to motivate and gives feedback in a manner that inspires our son to improve. He also encourages creativity and will work with song material that interests our son. Our son continues to love playing the piano and feels a great sense of accomplishment with the skills he has developed under Mr. Allen's guidance. I highly recommend Mr. Allen as a music instructor.

Welcome to my studio, where I will instruct you in your musical and academic endeavors. What sets me apart is that I offer diverse instruction in two different areas. In my music studio, I give lessons in piano, violin, guitar, and composition. In my tutoring center, I teach in multiple disciplines, from arts and sciences to SAT prep. I instruct students of all ages at different skill levels.

My in-studio lessons are given on a grand piano.

Accomplishments

As a high school senior, under the tutelage of OSU Professor Emeritus and world-renowned pianist George Haddad, I performed the first movement of Shostakovich'™s Second Piano Concerto with the chamber orchestra.

I performed different self-composed pieces at seven OSU Composers'™ Workshops and won the Audience Favorite Award at the Johnstone Woodwinds Composition Competition in 2012. My Senior Composition Recital was performed on October 25, 2012. It showcased several of my three-movement works: string quartet, clarinet solo, set of classical songs for piano and voice, set of pop songs for piano and voice. Interspersed with these were two solo piano pieces and a duet for piano and violin.

My background makes me a knowledgeable and effective tutor. I was valedictorian at Delaware Hayes High School in 2009 and received OSU'™s Maximus Scholarship based on my ACT and SAT scores.

Szu-Yu is very knowledgeable and skilled, everything stated about her is correct. I am very please that she is willing to work with me and discuss how I play, I am almost 60 years old and can play some. She is not judgmental but very positive and encouraging. She is not intimidated by my age, (my daughter is older). She knows her stuff and is very confident.
We meet at a practice facility in a college, that is fun and interesting.
My money is being well spent and I am learning things that should help me to grow and enjoy the piano, and possible reach a personal goal to be able to play at church.

Columbus, OH

About William

Hi, my name is Bill F. and am very interested in excited about the possibility of helping students reach their highest level of performance in four areas: piano, bass guitar, table tennis and PSAT testing. I have played piano (40 years), majored in music and graduated in psychology from Ohio State University (PhD), played bass guitar (multiple bands 1962-present), table tennis (50 years--have a pretty good game), and have worked with a wide variety of students on maximizing their test taking potential and overcoming test anxiety before retiring from psychology. I am new to the field of private
lessons, but am confident that I can help you discover the joys similar to those that I have experienced in the above areas. I am 64, in good health, and have been married for 31 years, have three children whom I have coached in soccer, baseball and basketball and have helped them get a good start in life--have had great success over the years as a coach and mentor. Followed Jesus since '76.
