« I have been trying to learn piano for a while now, but I kept getting frustrated with YouTube channels that moved too quickly. Michael was so patient, and it was obvious he cared about my progression week-to-week. Another thing that was really nice about Michael was that he never judged me when I was struggling with a certain concept. He never hesitated to slow things down and break it down into easier bits to digest. Thank you for all your help! »

Piano lessons while you are staying safe at home! No better time to learn a new instrument :)

Methodology

I make sure my students have the very basics, and then we build from there (technique, scale structures, chord structures, tonality, voicing harmonies, etc.). Then, I ask what they are trying to learn, or what level they are trying to attain. If they don't know, I point them in the right direction so they can start to learn what is best for them.

Background

I have 16+ years of experience playing classical, jazz, and pop music. I have been teaching since I was in high school. I love to teach my students what they want to learn and ensure they have the skills necessary to take it to the next step!

I'm a self-taught piano player who was getting hitting a plateau and didn't know how to get myself out of that rut. I found Michael through a friend of a friend and he blew me away. He taught me new techniques to add complexity and emotion to my music. Looking back, I was probably limited by my knowledge of music theory and composition, but Michael was extremely knowledgeable in both. I left my lessons with something new to try and was excited to see myself making real progress for the first time in years! I'd recommend Michael to anyone looking to get better at piano, from beginner-level musicians to more advanced and experienced players. His personality made lessons so much fun and the knowledge and ideas he had left me so excited for each of my next lessons!

I’ve been wanting to learn piano for quite some time now, but I was always sort of nervous to hire a tutor for some reason. Micheal made me feel really comfortable right away. Despite my lack of musical experience (I didn’t even know scales) Micheal was happy to start with the absolute basics and build up from there. He’s super easy to get along with and also super knowledgeable. He took the time to ask me what I wanted to get out of the lessons, and so I had the opportunity to sort of choose my own path. Such a great instructor!

Michael was the BEST piano tutor I've had. I've gone through a few, and he was by far the most passionate and the most helpful. I've played a little piano in the past, but he was really able to take what I know and bring me to the next level. One of the best things about Michael as a teacher was that he asked what I wanted to go over before the lesson started. If I told him a song, he would do his own research to see how he could teach me to make the song sound even better.

If any of my friends come to me asking where I found a piano tutor, I will not hesitate to send them to Michael. Thank you for everything!
