About this pro

My policy is to try a first lesson and see if it is a good fit, with no further commitment. I have been teaching piano for over 25 years. I have composed music for film and television, released three CD's of music and toured as a professional pop musician, as well as performed in musical theater. Music is my life, and I bring that passion to my students.   I provide a total experience with a little music theory, easy songs that build confidence, and  lots of encouragement. please check out...  http://www.pianowithkarl.com/

I love seeing each student come into their own, and never get tired of watching them grow musically!

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I earned a minor in Music at Bates College in Maine, then continued to study Piano, music Production, theory and engineering at Berklee College of Music in Boston. I highly reccomend that school!

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Simple, $40 for 30 mins, $50 for 45 mins, $60 for 60 mins. Please make note, I allow time between lessons so that you indeeed, get a FULL 30 minutes of real lesson time.

How did you get started teaching?

I have always been involved with music. A friend and I started writing songs at age 10. I finally started teaching piano at age 21, but took a break to tour and compose more music for television, then returned to some teachig at age 30.

What types of students have you worked with?

My students have ranged from age 5 to 75! From beginners to very advanced, from Pop to classical, jazz and Blues players. Some of my students have gone on to form their own bands and become music teachers themselves!

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

One of my students was offered a recording contract. Every year I hold a piano recital woth a wonderful co-teacher and friend. The tone of our recitals is very supportive, and NOT competetive. We have singers, composers, improvisers, duets and additional instruments participating. I am SO proud and moved to see their work!

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Interview the teacher, try just one lesson to see if it is a fit. Get right to the areas of interest that you have. See if the teacher understands and is truly capable of guiding and encouragin you in your area of special interest.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What music makes them happy to play!
