Jean is a wonderful teacher. She's dedicated and patient with her students. With a great music background, Jean has given our kids (two of her students) great music & piano techniques/methodology and a way to approach music that is by far superior to that of any of the previous piano teachers. She is agile in her approach to teaching piano with the belief that not one teaching method is applicable to all kids.

James T. Lancaster, PA

About James

I graduated with a B.A. in Professional Music from Boston's Berklee College of Music. When I first heard about Berklee, I too thought of warm and sunny Berkeley California and not the frigid winters in Boston. Berklee however, is respected world-wide as the musicians music college. Each year, only 3% of students are able to graduate. Advanced freshman placement accelerated all Berklee core requirements by my sophomore year. An early focus on their Advanced Harmony/Theory and Ear Training electives provided the rare opportunity of experiencing Berklee's highest level courses in both departments. I graduated with Honors in 7 semesters with a cumulative music GPA of 3.6. (Magna Cum Laude). Since graduation, I've been a full-time independent professional musician with over 28 years of ...

Jim Rocks! I love hanging out every Sunday jamming

I have dabbled with the guitar for a couple of years but never got serious about. This year I made a new years resolution to get serious about it and find a guitar instructor.

I am so happy that I found Jim. He is brilliant with music and is that laid back, rad teacher that you hope to have for guitar.

We are about 5 weeks into lessons and I'm already playing Dead or Alive, Blackbird, Polly, and learning new songs every week. I thought we would be doing "boring" exercises still but he is great at teaching you the basics while keeping it fun.

A+ for Jim. Also, he is extremely flexible.

The only downside is that I wanted him to teach me how to sing Blackbird, but that's not his cup of tea. haha

Thank you!

Hey Jim- I had a GREAT 1st lesson. You went slow enough so that I could understand what was going on but also went a little quicker so we could make the most of the half hour session. The things we worked on were exactly what i was hoping for. I will definitely be back on I feel confident in my "homework" - those darn finger exercises and I have a love hate relationship right now!! Thank you!

Playing piano is something that I really enjoy, so I love having the opportunity to give students the skills they need to enjoy it, too! *** Lesson Details *** I try to create a learning environment that's fun and laid back while still maintaining reasonable expectations for my students. I love seeing my students succeed, so I do my best to give them all the tools

Lindsey A. Hanover, PA

About Lindsey

I teach lessons out of my home on Fridays. I have an acoustic upright piano in my home, seating inside and outside, and there is plenty of on street parking. Students need either an acoustic piano at their home or a weighted keyboard. Students are responsible for purchasing their own sheet music, whether through me or from a store or online. We can talk about what kind of music you like to play or want to learn to play and go from there. Usually for either a beginner adult or child, I recommend the Alfred piano series, along with a technique book to strengthen and limber up the fingers, and a fun piece ... something you specifically want to learn or challenge yourself with. My strongest abilities are in classical music, because that is what I have the most experience in, ...

Joe R. Glen Rock, PA

About Joe

Hello! I've been singing since before I can remember and playing instruments for almost as long. I have a passion for music. Whether it's being onstage at York Little Theatre, singing with the church choir in Red Lion, or paying with one of several local and regional bands, I love music and performing. There's no rush like sharing your passion with an audience, and I believe that with practice comes confidence and with confidence comes a great performer. I'll make my schedule/rates as flexible as possible to accommodate anyone who wants to learn! Let's get started!
