Bennie is a very patient and intelligent teacher. You will not be disappointed with him. My granddaughter truly enjoys her time with him.
Jeff Hoffman
Bennie is a virtuoso keyboard player but also a great teacher at any level. He is also very sound on music technology and home recording as well as vocal coaching. I would highly recommend Bennie no matter what level you are on, he knows his craft!
Elizabeth
I have had vocal training with Bennie for quite a few years. He is a very dedicated teacher and showed me techniques I did not know existed. He has improved me to the point that I know perform at various venues. Additional to the vocal training, Bennie showed me how to find my pitch range and vocal warm-ups using the piano. I have trained with Bennie both in person and online. He is an extremely talented individual, I have even performed some of his original compositions. Anyone who is reviewing his profile will be extremely happy in their selection. He is a lot of fun to work with and his hours are very flexible. Thank you Bennie for the training we have had and looking forward to the future as being my mentor.

Do you want to play classical piano music, rock keyboard, pop music, jazz? You are in the right place!

I choose and adapt songs according to the age, interests, goals, and skills of the students. I also use the songs to teach different musical concepts: intervals, progressions, scales, chords. Every student is different, so I don't use any specific method.

La clase puede ser en español.

Laura had such a welcoming presence and didn’t make me feel bad about my voice at all, she made me feel way more confident. I am a beginner and I noticed an instant change in my voice, a good change. Laura also introduced me to a new part of my voice I didn’t know existed so I would definitely recommend her to anyone I meet.

Private Piano Teacher

I've been teaching Piano for 20+ years and my students have gone on to form their own groups and work with major artists around the world. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to know your way around the keyboard, and as time goes on you'll be able to naturally play what you want.
I am not your typical piano teacher. I don't use a method book. We will learn to read music but primarily we will be communicating old school, learning how to use both hands on the piano and voice them in a way which looks and sounds like a pop/ rock/ R&B, gospel and blues piano player/ keyboardist and not a classical pianist. I was trained by a Motown musician and songwriter be versed in music as to be able to speak and communicate it as natural as a 2nd language! You will learn how to read and write chord charts, melodies and rhythms and have the ability to play songs & musical motifs in all 12 keys, improvising within the structure.

Soon you'll feel a new sense of limitlessness and power when ...

Private Piano Teacher

I've been teaching the piano professionally for a few years and like to start my first lesson by getting to know my student's interests and goals. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to read music, play at least 2 scales, start connecting music to your emotions and communication, and actively start playing music in the genre of your choice. As time goes on you'll be able to sightread, play more scales, understand beginning music theory, play by ear, gain confidence, and understand your emotions better. I specialize in classical and pop, using a combination of physical books and online sheet music. It means a lot to me when students bring up a song they want to learn because they will be more engaged and can have more fun in their lesson. In those moments, I look up a version of that song that they can play at their level for the next possible lesson. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

"Very impressed with David's piano teaching ability. Arthur has been inspired! I really like the way David 'paints a picture' in his descriptions of how to improve a player's performance. For example, "Your hands should be like dancers who know their routines, and are independent of one another". Plus he backs this up with practice and repetition until it sinks in. Essentially, what's so great about David is that the finer details of being an outstanding pianist are fully addressed in a positive way, and I feel confident that Arthur will emerge from his chrysalis as a more fluent, happy, and improved performer. Arthur has learned so much in so few lessons. Thank you!"

"Randy is an amazing music teacher! I have worked in the music industry for some pretty big names as a record producer and songwriter. But I have always wanted to become a live musician. Randy is showing me how to become a true professional Musician. He teaches in a way that is clear and easy to understand. He is very well organized and creates a plan for me each lesson and sends it to me. This really has helped me to stay on track and focused until our next lesson. Randy has not only taught me how to play piano and sing much better than I ever thought I could, but he has also helped me to realize...WHY I play music. Discovering why I create music has been Powerful to my musical growth! Thanks Randy for the pathway of learning you have showed me!
